Prostate Cancer Study Breakthrough
On October 7th 2011, I had the honor of speaking at the 16th World Congress on Advances in Oncology in Rhodes, Greece. There, I had the opportunity to introduce the principles of Integrative Oncology in such a prestigious, traditional setting, as well as discuss my work with MCP and polybotanicals in cancer. My colleague and fellow researcher Dr. Daniel Silva, presented a number of significant new research findings which further validate the effectiveness of several integrative anti-cancer supplements. The most recent data comes from a new animal study which confirms the significant effects of my integrative prostate formula against aggressive prostate cancer tumors.
Researchers at the Methodist Research Institute at Indiana University and the Indiana University School of Medicine conducted this study on mice, using a human prostate cancer xenograft model (outlined below). These latest results were presented to hundreds of researchers and medical doctors in Rhodes, Greece during this year’s influential international oncology conference.
The results of this in-vivo (live animal) study demonstrate the significant benefits of my integrative prostate formula in protecting against prostate cancer cell growth. Specifically, the formula was shown to suppress the development and proliferation of human hormone refractory (androgen independent) prostate cancer. In addition, the toxicology analysis proved that this formula is non-toxic and poses no risk of side effects.
This in-vivo study is significant because hormone refractory prostate cancer (androgen independent) is especially hard to treat. It’s the more aggressive, advanced form of prostate cancer that often leads to metastasis and progression of the cancer. It’s also an important study because it’s not the first time this formula has demonstrated such scientifically significant anti-cancer effects in pre-clinical trials.
Formulated with Natural Ingredients Proven to Support Prostate
The all-natural, doctor-designed formula combines botanical extracts, phytonutrients, botanically enhanced medicinal mushrooms and antioxidants. Ingredients were selected based on scientific research demonstrating their abilities to fight prostate abnormalities and provide broad spectrum prostate support.
Formula Inhibits Tumor Growth and Genes Related to Metastasis
Results of the study show that the oral administration of this formula produced a statistically significant suppression of tumor growth, compared to controls. The study was performed using a xenograft model of human prostate cancer in mice. A xenograft model is when tissue or organs from an individual of one species are transplanted or grafted onto an organism of another species, genus or family. So human prostate cancer cells (tissue) are grafted onto a laboratory animal, which in this case were mice.
In addition to a significant reduction in tumor volume, results of this study showed the formula also worked to inhibit a number of genes involved in cancer proliferation and metastasis. Two interesting genes that were suppressed relate to the metastatic potential and can point out to the ability of this preparation to not only inhibit the primary tumor growth, but also the metastatic process, an even more important benefit in the fight against aggressive prostate cancer.
Study Further Validates Previous In-Vitro Results
This formula has previously been studied in research laboratories at Columbia University, NY, NY and at the Cancer Research Laboratory, Methodist Research Institute, Indiana University Health, Indianapolis, IN. These pre-clinical studies used in-vitro methods (i.e. cell culture studies) and gene expression analysis to demonstrate this formula’s ability to inhibit prostate cancer growth and proliferation.
“In summary, this dietary supplement is a natural complex for the possible therapy of human hormone refractory (independent) prostate cancer,” says Dr. Sliva. Ongoing research on this formula in prostate cancer models continues to show encouraging results, and additional studies are forthcoming. As promising research on this and other integrative health formulas continues to emerge from the scientific community, I will be updating readers with current information on the latest findings. Stay tuned.
