LIST OF THINGS THAT "MAY" KILL PC CELLS

Capsaicin

 

 

7/2/06

 

4/19//09

 

Capsaicin is the active ingredient in hot peppers and the one that turns up the heat. It is a compound useful in nature for preventing pepper plants from being eaten by insects and animals. When capsaicin is consumed by humans in the form of hot sauce, chili peppers or cayenne pepper, it offers a wealth of health benefits. One that has received much recent attention is the ability of capsaicin to make prostate cancer cells commit suicide.

RNA-based drug

 

8/2006

Acting as a genetic Trojan horse, an experimental RNA-based drug -- the first of its kind -- tricks its way into prostate cancer cells and then springs into action to destroy them, while leaving normal cells unharmed

Pectin

 

8/22/07

Study finds that pectin, a type of fiber found in fruits and vegetables and used in making jams and other foods, kills prostate cancer cells

Stat5 Protein Block

 

 

3/1/08

 

Researchers have shown that they can effectively kill prostate cancer cells in both the laboratory and in experimental animal models by blocking a signaling protein that is key to the cancer’s growth. The work proves that the protein, Stat5, is both vital to prostate cancer cell maintenance and that it is a viable target for drug therapy.

Magnolol

 

 

7/10/09

Magnolol, a substance taken from the root and bark of the magnolia tree, is a potent killer of prostate cancer cells. Because it does not damage healthy cells, Magnolol could be a promising new therapy for prostate cancer, as well as other types of cancers.

F77

 

 

 

 

 

 

1/7/10

 

While exploring novel markers and therapeutic approaches for prostate cancer, Geng Zhang, from the University of Pennsylvania (USA), and colleagues identified an antibody, named F77, that bonds with cancerous prostate tissues and cells, and even promotes the death of cancerous tissue.  When injected into mice, F77 bonded in 97% of cases where prostate cancer tissue was present, and bonded in 85% of cases where the cancer had metastasized.  Further, F77 recognized androgen-independent cancer cells, present in incurable prostate cancer.  The team concludes that: “[T]he present study indicates that … F77 defines a unique prostate cancer marker and shows promising potential for diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer, especially for androgen-independent metastatic prostate cancer.”

Black seed oil

 

 

 

6/3/10

 

Black seed oil from the Nigella sativa plant is found to kill prostate cancer cells, found in lab studies. Researchers from Tulane University have shown that Thymoquinone (TQ) has anti-cancer properties that suppress the growth and lead to death of aggressive prostate cancer.  The discovery comes from the scientists desire to find natural compounds with anti-cancer properties.

Gamma Tocotrienol

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7/14/10

 

Prostate cancer treatment targets existing tumor cells but does little to address the source of new prostate cancer cells which come from a smaller group of prostate cancer stem cells.  A variety of cell experiments show for the first time that gamma tocotrienal can turn off the activity of these prostate cancer stem cells in existing cancer and stop them from having activity in the first place.  A considerable amount of cancer research is underway regarding the power of gamma tocotrienol.  As a general health nutrient it is one of the top choices for prevention of cancer.  It is often able to reduce the spread of existing cancer and it typically demonstrates a synergistic benefit with chemo drugs, helping to overcome resistant cancer.  This new study with prostate cancer once again demonstrates all of these helpful characteristics in addition to the novel finding of the ability to address prostate cancer stem cells.

I'm not recommending any of these...just find it interesting all the different research that is going on.  To what end, who knows...

Great list! I have become a bit sceptical of all the stuff that supposedly kills PC cells, at least in the test tube. I would not be surprised to read that someone peed in it with dramatic success. A major difficulty seems to be getting the stuff to actually target pc cells in the body.

Vitamin E Tocotrienol

 

Gamma-Tocotrienol (γ-T3)

Survival rates of the world’s most common cancer might soon be increased with a new vitamin E treatment which could significantly reduce tumour regrowth.

FUS

Researchers found the protein, FUS, which occurs naturally in cells, may curb the growth of prostate cancer cells and begin a chain of events that leads to their death, according to a report in the journal Cancer Research. When the amount of FUS was increased, more cells died, which suggested that a drug that boosts the protein levels in patients could prove beneficial in preventing prostate cancer cells from spreading beyond the prostate gland.

ERK5

 

 

SCIENTISTS hope to reduce the death rate from one of the most common forms of cancer by targeting a protein that "drives" the spread of the disease through the body.

Researchers at Glasgow University have found that reducing levels of the protein - known as ERK5 - can stop prostate cancer spreading to other parts of the body.

Estrogens -- hormones

 

Researchers at the Monash University in Melbourne used a drug compound to selectively activate the prostate's beta estrogen receptor cells. Study co-author Gail Risbridger says this has the effect of targeting for cell death a small but important population of cells in the prostate cancer tumor that are often resistant to conventional therapy and can lead to recurrent incurable disease.

"It is a significant piece of the puzzle that will help medical research in this field -- an achievement that could eventually enhance treatment options for patients around the world with advanced prostate cancer," Risbridger said in a statement.

MV-CEA

A new study appearing in The Prostate has found that certain measles virus vaccine strain derivatives, including a strain known as MV-CEA, may prove to be an effective treatment for patients with advanced prostate cancer. The findings show that this type of treatment, called virotherapy, can effectively infect, replicate in and kill prostate cancer cells.

Of course I'll put my own disclaimer on this:

None of this stuff has been factually proven to work in humans. While human prostate cancer cells can be controlled in vitro, or in laboratory mice, many times over that has been true and then when study is performed in humans, simply put they may not work. If somebody were to use these lists to "self-prescribe" they will probably be doing more harm than good for their bodies. One thing that studies give us goes well beyond what the lab discovers. Such as side effects that may exceed the prostate cancer fighting benefits. Proper dosing amounts to be safe. Also many of these items just won't pan out in a clinical trial and won't have any efficacy against prostate cancer.

OK I'll step away from the mike...

Tony, I'm glad you grabbed the mike. I was looking frantically for ice cream and rum on the list, but couldn't find it.

I have a very sensitive mouth to peppers and the thought of hot ones, or chewing on a magnolia tree wasn't appealing at all.

I shall go with your wisdom on this, Tony --- although the thought of overdosing on Pectin via endless buttered toast covered with a heavy slab of my wife's home made strawberry jam does have some appeal.

This Journal Article from the Journal of Urology Nov. 2003 happens to show some factual info:

http://ffyates.com/prostate/des.pdf
 and
www.pcainaz.com/Pages/ETE_eng.pdf    (another source too) 

Of course you don't have to look at it or believe it, those doctors believe it and saw results and so do many patients. Including myself with measured results over 6-7 years, but who cares?

Thanks for these links, Zufus.

I looked at them and to the extent I understand them, I have no reason to doubt them.

As for caring, I care ..... both about you, and myself and a dear friend who, at 80, is headed the hormone treatment.

I send best wishes for continued success!
