Coffee May Help Slow Down the Growth of Prostate Cancer Cells
A new study, performed by researchers from Kanazawa University Graduate School of Medical Science, Japan, suggests that two compounds in coffee may help slow down the growth of prostate cancer cells.
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.”
