2019 OCT 23 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Cancer Daily -- New research on Oncology - Prostate Cancer is the subject of a report. According to news reporting out of Seoul, South Korea, by NewsRx editors, research stated, “Prostate cancer is the third most common cancer worldwide, and the burden of the disease is increased. Although several chemotherapies have been used, concerns about the side effects have been raised, and development of alternative therapy is inevitable.”

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Kyung Hee University, “The purpose of this study is to prove the efficacy of dietary substances as a source of anti-tumor drugs by identifying their carcinostatic activities in specific pathological mechanisms. According to numerous studies, dietary substances were effective through following five mechanisms; apoptosis, anti-angiogenesis, anti-metastasis, microRNA (miRNA) regulation, and anti-multi-drug-resistance (MDR). About seventy dietary substances showed the anti-prostate cancer activities. Most of the substances induced the apoptosis, especially acting on the mechanism of caspase and poly adenosine diphosphate ribose polymerase (PARP) cleavage.”

According to the news editors, the research concluded: “These findings support that dietary compounds have potential to be used as anticancer agents as both food supplements and direct clinical drugs.”
