A Compound in Soy May Improve Breast Cancer Treatment
A new study from the University of Arizona Cancer Center in Tucson, US, suggests that genistein, a compound found in soy, could protect a gene responsible for suppressing the development of cancerous tumors and therefore improve breast cancer treatment.
For the research, a team of scientists conducted in vitro experiments using cancer cells taken from human breast tumors. Having analyzed the received results, the scientists concluded that genistein, a soy isoflavone, may play a significant role in halting the development of breast cancer tumors.
Dr. Donato F. Romangolo, one of the lead authors of the study, says: “Lifetime intake of soy in Asian woman has been linked to reduced risk of breast cancer. Genistein is the predominant isoflavone found in soy and it may actually block DNA methylation.”
