Prostate Cancer Cells Stop Spreading After Pomegranate Juice Treatment

December 12, 2010: 07:02 PM EST

Testing for a way of stopping testosterone resistant prostate cancer cells from metastasizing to the bone, researchers at the University of California, Riverside, have discovered that pomegranate juice may provide the answer. The study found that certain components of pomegranate juice acting on a molecular level increased cellular adhesion and reduced migration in cultured cells. Researchers also say it would be possible to apply the components of the juice to drug therapies fighting other types of cancers as the genes and proteins involved in cancer cell migration are similar. The lab plans to run additional tests to study any side effects.
