My reading on this plant is not supporting that they should exist in this area. Results In Vitro prostate cancer spheroid effect Prostate cancer spheroids were exposed to increasing doses of Arum palaestinum Boiss extract raum to the fortified version of the plant extract called GZ Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine.

Tissue Eng Part A. Expression analysis of caspase-6, caspase-9 and BNIP3 in prostate cancer. Control mice 10 mice in each group received vehicle in the same manner and volume. Pak J Biol Sci. In contrast, when the 3 were combined with the plant to form GZ17, the cell death rate was greatly enhanced to the point that nearly all cells were dead at the highest tested dose.

Background The use of herbal remedies is widespread in both developing and developed countries [ 1 ]. On Feb 23,kauaitaro from Oceanside, CA wrote: Views Read Edit View history. Views View Edit History. The root is tuberous. The size of the tumors and the rate of tumor growth were both statistically greater in the vehicle-treated mice, compared to the GZ GZ17 induces a dramatic increase in caspase 6 levels.

The tumor size was measured with calipers twice weekly. The in vivo studies illustrated the efficacy by inhibiting the growth rate of the xenotransplanted prostate tumors in mice.

Tumor volume was measured in 3 dimensions with calipers. Greco-Arab and Islamic herbal medicine: Contributor Information Caitlin Cole, Phone: In traditional medicine among Arabs in Palestine, Arum palaestinum extracts have been used as a remedy for cancer, intestinal worms, infections in open wounds, urinary tract obstructions, and kidney stones, and are thought to strengthen bones.

CC completed all in vitro assays including prostate cancer spheroid formation and testing. GZ17 was more potent at inducing cell death compared to the plant extract with statistically lower cell numbers at 3.

A new pyrrole alkaloid isolated from Arum palaestinum Boiss and its biological activities.

It was compared to the vehicle control, which induced no cell death at the same concentrations. Complementary medicine use among cancer patients receiving radiotherapy and chemotherapy: Prostate cancer spheroids respond to Arum arrum Boiss and the fortified GZ The use of herbal remedies is widespread in both developing and developed countries [ 1 ]. However, the same fraction failed to suppress growth of a liver cancer cell line Hep G2 [ 7 ].


Likarda is an independent contract research organization afum was paid for studies completed. I’ve been growing this plant for about 40 years – it was one o.

Assessment of reaggregated human pancreatic islets for secondary drug screening. Discussion Complementary medicine is commonly used among cancer patients. In Davidson, Alan; Jain, Tom. Conclusions Fortified Arum palaestinum Boiss caused a reduction in live cells within prostate cancer spheroids and blocked tumor growth in aurm prostate tumors in mice without signs of toxicity.

Classical research focusing on a single active compound disregards armu historical knowledge of the traditional remedy and the source of the plant. Caspase palaestinun Glo Reagent Promega was allowed to equilibrate to room temperature, and subsequently added in a 1: Caspase 6 has been termed an effector caspase, along with caspases 3 and 7, which are activated intrinsically or extrinsically by one of the initiator caspases, 2, 9, 8, or 10 [ 17 ].
