Tackling Prostate Cancer With A New Dietary Supplement

Prostate cancer is one of the biggest cancer killers in industrial countries and affects //more than 500,000 men worldwide every year. This number is expected to increase with the ageing population, prompting increasing focus on prevention. Researchers now say that a daily supplement containing plant oestrogens and antioxidants like selenium and carotenoids may slow the rise in PSA levels, a marker for prostate cancer progression in some men.

Researchers from the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam say they have developed a water-soluble powder supplement for men with prostate cancer. The contents included a number of nutrients previously shown to protect against prostate cancer, including 50mg of alpha-tocopherol, 1.5g of phytosterols, 0.2 mg selenium, green tea, isoflavones and the carotenoids lutein and lycopene (10mg each).

For the study researchers took up 37 subjects with high levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA), a protein that often demonstrates the presence of prostate cancer and its progression. Results after six weeks showed that the men had lower levels of male sex hormones, known to boost prostate cancer growth, and, in 21 patients, the supplement stopped the rise in PSA.

Although the study results indicate positive findings researchers say the effect on PSA levels does not necessarily mean that tumours would stop growing. Thus researchers say if future studies confirm that these observations translate into a slowing of disease progression, a dietary intervention may indeed become an attractive option for prostate cancer treatment and prevention
