Frankincense for Ovarian Cancer

Frankincense for Ovarian Cancer | Cancer - Advances, Knowledge, Integrative & Holistic Treatments | Scoop.it
One of the most famous Christmas gifts of all time, frankincense, may be effective for the treatment of late-stage ovarian cancer, according to a new study from UK researchers.
Graham Player Ph.D.'s insight:

Research suggests that frankincense may be useful for the treatment of some cancers, including breast, colon and prostate cancer, due to a compound it contains, called acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid (AKBA).

Researchers from the University of Leicester in the UK analyzed the AKBA compound in vitro for 1 year, and tested it on a series of late-stage ovarian cancer cell lines, some of which were resistant to chemotherapy. They found that the compound effectively killed ovarian cancer cells, and were surprised to find that chemotherapy-resistant cell lines appeared to become more sensitive when the AKBA compound was applied.
