Botanical Formula Fights Prostate Cancer

Thursday, 12 April 2012 03:13 PM EDT

A non-toxic, botanical formula has been found to combat and control aggressive human prostate tumors in mice.
The study, published in International Journal of Oncology, determined the formula – a combination of botanical extracts, phytonutrients, medicinal mushrooms and antioxidants – suppressed tumor growth by 27 percent and limited the spread of cancer.
Researchers at Indiana University, Methodist Research Institute, said the work also demonstrated there were no toxic side effects caused by the tumor-halting formula, which could prove particularly effective in treating cancers that have not responded to hormone therapy – often a last resort for patients.
This study is the third from a major university to demonstrate the formula's ability to suppress tumor growth and metastasis.
"This study is a milestone in the research of this formula, demonstrating its safety and effectiveness in treating human prostate cancer in an animal model," said lead researcher Dr. Isaac Eliaz. "These positive results offer a significant contribution to prostate cancer research and add to the growing body of published data substantiating the role of natural compounds in the treatment of prostate cancer."
In addition to the latest study, the formula was analyzed by Columbia University and the Cancer Research Laboratory, Methodist Research Institute, at Indiana University Health. These studies also showed the formula inhibits prostate cancer growth and proliferation.
