Breakthrough Prostate Cancer Animal Study

We have said it many times before on this Prostate Cancer website, but it’s worth repeating it one more time…

It’s just a matter of TIME before a permanent and highly effective treatment is found for prostate cancer. There are lots and lots of individuals, groups and organizations that are spending endless days and nights looking for such treatment.

With the various positive breakthroughs achieved so far, it seems that TIME is getting closer before prostate cancer becomes history.

Yes, I know that’s being overly positive, but it CAN happen.

Below is a news article about a breakthrough achieved for prostate cancer after an animal study which confirmed the dramatic effects of a natural formula against aggressive prostate cancer tumors:

New animal study confirms the dramatic effects of a natural formula against aggressive prostate cancer tumors. Researchers at the Methodist Research Institute at Indiana University conducted the study on mice, using a human prostate cancer xenograft model (outlined below). These latest results have been presented to hundreds of researchers and medical doctors in Rhodes, Greece during the 16th World Congress on Advances in Oncology and 14th International Symposium on Molecular Medicine.

Lead investigator, Dr. Daniel Sliva presented the results of this in vivo (live animal) study, demonstrating the significant effects of the formula in suppressing the proliferation and metastasis of human hormone refractory (androgen independent) prostate cancer cells. In addition, the toxicology analysis proved that this formula is non-toxic and poses no risk of side effects. “Dietary supplements are used as an alternative or adjuvant therapies. However, rigorous scientific verification of their biological activity in vitro and in vivo is necessary for the acceptance of dietary supplements in conventional cancer treatment and prevention,” says Dr. Sliva.

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.

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 at research laboratories at Columbia University, NY, NY and at the Cancer Research Laboratory, Methodist Research Institute, Indiana University Health, Indianapolis, IN, using in vitro methods (i.e. cell culture studies) and gene expression analysis. These prior studies showed significant results in this formula’s ability to inhibit prostate cancer growth and proliferation.

This present study is a milestone in the research of this formula, because it used a laboratory animal model to test for toxicity and showed how the formula suppressed human prostate cancer tumor growth within a living mammal. Read more.

We hope you learned something from this Breakthrough Prostate Cancer Animal Study.
