Resveratrol improved radiation treatment
Tumor cells die with resveratrol
by Newsletter Editor
Some cancer tumors resist radiation treatment. In earlier studies, resveratrol increased sensitivity of prostate cancer cells to radiation therapy. In this study, doctors treated cancer cells with resveratrol alone, or along with radiation. With resveratrol alone, 44 percent of tumor cells died. When treated with both resveratrol plus radiation, 65 percent of tumor cells died.
