Curcumin Spice's Role in Supporting the Health of Those Who Have Canc
The group found that increased NF-kappaB activity is linked to several renegade cells of the gastro-intestinal (GI) tract.
Work is being extended to assess the effect of curcumin supplementation on NF-kappaB activity in patients.
If the pilot study in patients shows similar results to the study using cultured cells, it will indicate that curcumin supplementation may have beneficial effects in patients.
Professor Baxter said: "We have been trying to identify potential ways to suppress NF-kappaB activity and, ultimately, to block GI tract problems. The curcumin discovery is a shot in the arm for our research."
The experimental cost of the project has been funded by Morriston Hospital's Research and Development Office.
Scientists across the world have long suspected that some elements of Indian food may be beneficial in the drive against canc.
