Botanical Formula Fights Prostate Cancer Without Toxic Side Effects
A pre-clinical study confirms that a powerful botanical formula decreases the expression of PLAU/uPA genes in aggressive, hormone-independent prostate cancer cells.
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. The formula combines botanical extracts, phytonutrients, botanically-enhanced medicinal mushrooms, and antioxidants. This is the third study from a major university to demonstrate the formula’s ability to suppress tumor growth and metastasis.
Multiple studies have demonstrated that this prostate formula is a possible treatment for hormone-refractory prostate cancer. This current study found that the orally-administered formula suppressed tumor growth by 27 percent, compared to controls. Even more important, in addition to significant reduction in tumor volume, the formula inhibited several genes (IGF2, NRNF2 and PLAU/uPA) that encourage cancer proliferation and metastasis. The formula also increased expression of CDKN1A, a gene that fights prostate cancer by inhibiting cancer-promoting cellular mechanisms.
By suppressing genes related to aggressive prostate cancer growth and proliferation, and increasing the expression of cancer-fighting genes, the formula demonstrates multiple anti-cancer mechanisms and genetic targets.
This pre-clinical in vivo study confirms previously published in vitro data, which showed the formula decreases the expression of PLAU/uPA genes in aggressive, hormone-independent prostate cancer cells.
Prior to this research, the formula was studied at 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. For more information about this natural prostate formula, visit www.prostatehealthsolutions.org.
