密歇根大学综合癌症中心的研究人员发现,生姜不仅能杀死癌细胞,还能阻止癌细胞抵抗癌症治疗。生姜已经被用作治疗恶心和炎症的有效药物。

 

科学家们在美国癌症研究协会年会的海报会上展示了他们的成果。

 

在这项研究中,科学家们将生姜粉和水的溶液应用于卵巢癌细胞(类似在食品在杂货店销售的生姜粉,只是研究等级的标准) 。在他们的每一次的测试中,他们发现癌细胞一旦与生姜接触-要么自杀(凋亡),要么被消化/攻击(自噬)

如果生姜可以引起自噬和细胞凋亡,它可以预防化疗的耐药性——这是卵巢癌患者的共同发展。

 

研究人员说,这是否会给动物研究带来同样令人鼓舞的结果还有待观察。

 

生姜的另一大优点是几乎没有副作用的报道。它也是一种简单的产品,以胶囊的形式呈现。

研究人员强调,这是一个初步的研究,需要进一步的研究。

 

预计今年将有超过2万名美国女性被诊断出患有卵巢癌。预计今年有1.5万名女性死于卵巢癌(美国)

Ginger Kills Ovarian Cancer Cells

Published      Monday 17 April 2006 By Christian Nordqvist 

Researchers from the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center have found that ginger not only kills cancer cells, it also prevents them from building up resistance to cancer treatment. Ginger is already used as an effective remedy for nausea and inflammation.

 

The scientists are presenting their results in a poster session at the American Association for Cancer Research annual meeting.

 

In this study, scientists applied a solution of ginger powder and water to ovarian cancer cells (similar ginger powder to what is sold at grocery stores, only a standardized research grade). In every single one of their tests they found that the cancer cells died as a result of being in contact with the ginger solution - they either committed suicide (apoptosis) or they digested/attacked themselves (autophagy).

 

If ginger can cause autophagy as well as apoptosis, it can prevent resistance to chemotherapy - something that is a common development with ovarian cancer patients.

 

Whether or not this brings the same encouraging results in animal studies remains to be seen, say the researchers.

 

Another great advantage of ginger is that there are hardly any reports of side effects. It is also an easy product to present in capsule form.

 

The researchers stressed that this is a preliminary study and further research is needed.

 

Over 20,000 American women are expected to be diagnosed with ovarian cancer this year. 15,000 women are expected to die from ovarian cancer this year (in the USA).
