Non-toxic and effective botanical formula for prostate cancer treatment

A study conducted by researchers at Indiana University, led by researcher Dr. Daniel Sliva and formula inventor Dr. Isaac Eliaz, tested the safety, effectiveness and non-toxicity of a botanical formula in suppressing tumor growth in an animal model of aggressive, hormone-refractory (androgen-independent) human prostate cancer. The formula is composed of botanical extracts, phytonutrients, botanically-enhanced medicinal mushrooms and antioxidants. The study found that the orally-administered formula  reduced tumor volume by 27 percent, suppressed several genes (IGF2, NRNF2 and PLAU/uPA) that encourage cancer proliferation and metastasis, and increases expression of CDKN1A cancer-fighting genes. Results of the study confirmed previously published studies which showed the formula decreases the expression of PLAU/uPA genes in aggressive, hormone-independent prostate cancer cells.
