A team of scientists tested the effect of several coffee compounds on prostate cancer in mice, using cells which were resistant to ordinary cancer drugs. The experiments showed that two compounds, kahweol acetate and calefstol, applied to prostate cancer cells in a petri dish, slowed down the cell growth.

Study leader Dr. Hiroaki Iwamoto says: “We found that kahweol acetate and cafestol inhibited the growth of the cancer cells in mice, but the combination seemed to work synergistically, leading to a significantly slower tumor growth than in untreated mice.”
