Natural Compounds Can Aid In The Treatment Of Some Forms Of Cancer

November 17, 2010 by  

Natural compounds can aid in the treatment of some forms of cancerBeing physically active, eating healthy and receiving regular medical exams could all help to prevent or detect cancer at an early stage, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Now, new research has discovered that a natural compound may also help in the treatment of some forms of this illness.

Researchers from the University Libre de Bruxelles in Belgium focused their study on a substance called narciclasine that is found in daffodil bulbs. The scientists used computer-based techniques to find the main factor in cancer cells that may benefit from narciclasine.

Genetically altered mice with human melanoma metastatic cells in their brain were either treated or not treated with the narciclasine substance. Researchers found that the narciclasine group lived significantly longer lives.

The scientists noted that the daffodil compound may inhibit the progression of aggressive brain cancer cells while having no effect on normal cells. However, they indicate that more research is set to be conducted on a clinically based trial.

The scientists are hopeful that natural compounds, such as narciclasine, will be effective for treating brain cancer patients, in addition to conventional therapies.

    Hi there…
    every research finds something…and someone benefits from it..
    Too awesome for words!!!
    I also know from experience that regular checkups are not helping much…many doctors schedule the usual blood test, urine test check your pulse and blood pressure and unless one is still breathing fairly well, everyhting is great!!!
    I am on a crusade for MEN TO GET COLONOSCOPY DONE…
    I have lost my Husband to colon cancer…because the doctor never ordered one and my Husband never asked for it…
    by the time it was detected it was WAY too late and after 8 months of chemotherapy my Husband past away at the age of 60.
    The diagnostic tests and consultation was as shocking as a lightning straight from heaven for my Husband never showed any symptoms, any signs whatsoever…aside of feeling a bit tired for couple of months what prompted us to check with a doctor …they jumped up and ordered all the test for heart….only to discover his colon and liver were in essence done.
    The statistics are horrifying!!!
    PLEASE DO YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY A FAVOR!! MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR COLONOSCOPY (advised age for men to start is 50th birthday!)
