Gamma-Tocotrienol Kills Prostate Cancer Stem Cells

formed, but also decreased the incidence rate of tumour formation by 75%, as compared to the control group of mice, which had 100% tumour formation. These results strongly suggest that gamma-tocotrienol could be developed for prostate cancer prevention and treatment.

"Current chemotherapy drugs, such as Docetaxel, have limited effect on prostate cancer stem cells, although they are currently the first-line drug given to patients with advanced hormonal refractory prostate cancer. This study shows that gamma-tocotrienol is effective in preventing the formation of prostate tumours in mice models. The key compound involves the use of a natural product, gamma-tocotrienol, which is found in edible plant oils, thereby minimising potential adverse side effects," said Dr. Daniel Yap, one of the leading scientists for the study and Head of Research & Development at Davos Life Science. "As gamma-tocotrienol has shown positive results in removing the stubborn prostate cancer stem cells, it should be investigated as a more effective form of treatment strategy to achieve what conventional chemotherapy drug has failed to do -- to keep the disease in remission state."

"These results provide a compelling case for developing the potential of gamma-tocotrienols to help patients with terminal hormonal refractory prostate cancer. The prospects of future studies on the cancer-fighting effects of gamma-tocotrienols are exciting indeed and we see increasing research interest by scientists in this area," said Mr. Arthur Ling, CEO of Davos Life Science Singapore.
