Doctors trial use of hair in breast cancer test
A new study suggests that women suffering from breast cancer and some women without it can be treated effectively with an extract from their hair, in a controlled setting.
There is increasing evidence in support that women with breast cancer have a more d천안안마ifficult time of remission than women without it. That is why, when treated effectively, hair growth in women with and without breast cancer is often considered helpful for breast healing.
Th로투스 홀짝e U.S. Food and Drug Administration says it is aware of a large study of hair that has been studied to see if its anti-cancer effect could be effective in preventing and treating breast cancer.
“This is a highly relevant study and it makes us think about whether there may be an advantage in hair extractions as chemotherapy is often used as part of this treatment. We believe this trial offers evidence to support that in particular, hair growth is more likely to benefit breast cancer than chemo.” says Jennifer R. Burdette, Ph.D., a clinical research scientist at the FDA and an associate professor in the College of Science at the University of Florida.
Burdette conducted the study from the perspective of two patients who had been treated using hair extractions since 2006:
One of the women who was treated using hair as part of breast cancer chemotherapy. The second patient was treated with hair extractions using chemotherapy but not breast cancer.
The three women were followed for at least 10 years before and after treatment and the number of participants who developed an increased breast size.
The treatment is similar to the one used for menopausal women, but there are several differences.
Burdette says the two female patients had previously treated their hair with chemotherapy, which 블랙 잭was no longer effective. Hair does have an anti-cancer action, but that action is still relatively weak compared to the body’s immune response and the hair’s ability to break down cancer cells. Hair also may take longer to break down cancer cells after treatment, so the two women ended up with more breast tumors that are harder to treat. “This study is more proof of principle for hair growth as a potential therapy in breast cancer treatment.”
Both of the patients receiving chemotherapy received hair in the study, the patient with the breast cancer who was previously treated using chemotherapy and the patient with breast cancer who was not treated with chemotherapy. The hair that was provided by the patient who was originally treated with chemotherapy was tested with several human breast cancer cells in vitro. A control group was not studied.
