Cancer inhibitor in green tea may be effective in humans
A few days ago we wrote about a sponsored human study, in which Greenselect Phytosome accelerated weight loss and increased the concentration of growth hormone and IGF-1. As fas as we know, the research we are talking about now is not sponsored.
Just before the supplementation began, the researchers took some cells out of the tumors. When the 4 weeks were over, the women were operated and surgeons removed the tumors.
Ki-67 is a protein that indicates growth and cell division. The more Ki-67 you find in cancer cells, the more vital they are. In the removed tumors, the researchers found a negligible little bit less Ki-67 than in the biopsies. But when they determined the relationship between the concentration of EGCG in the women's blood and the amount of Ki-67 in the tumors, they found a meaningful association: more EGCG in the blood of the women meant less Ki-67.
"Furthermore, observational studies have evaluated green tea in relation to gynecologic cancers and a meta-analysis reported that green tea intake was associated with a 23% decrease in endometrial cancer risk, [Am J Obstet Gynecol. 2009 Dec;201(6):605.e1-8.] which is the biggest concern of patients taking tamoxifen for adjuvant treatment and prevention. [Cancer Treat Rev. 2017 Apr;55:1-9.]"
"With all the caution necessary when extrapolating data from preclinical studies or retrospective trials, a future step might be the evaluation of the combination of Greenselect Phytosome with low dose tamoxifen, which has shown a potential preventive effect on high-risk ductal carcinoma in situ in postmenopausal women. [Int J Cancer. 2016 Nov 1;139(9):2127-34.]"
"In conclusion, we have shown for the ﬁrst time that Greenselect Phytosome is able to reach human breast tissue. Further clinical investigation is needed to conﬁrm the potential of Greenselect Phytosome in cancer prevention."
Of course we know better
