Copper nanoparticles and immunotherapy rapidly eliminate cancer cells – Pilot Study

Copper nanoparticles and immunotherapy rapidly eliminate cancer cells – Pilot Study

The combination of the nanoparticles and immunotherapy made the tumours disappear entirely and, as a result, works as a vaccine for lung and colon cancer – the two types that were investigated in the study. To confirm their finding, the researchers injected tumour cells back into the mice. These cells were immediately eliminated by the immune system, which was on the lookout for any new, similar, cells invading the body.

Antidepressant foods: An evidence-based nutrient profiling system for depression

The objective of this study is to determine which foods are the most nutrient dense sources of nutrients demonstrated by human studies published in the current scientific literature to play a role in the prevention and promotion of recovery from depressive disorders.

Taste and Smell disorders in Chemotherapy alleviated by Lactoferrin Supplementation

Research shows that daily lactoferrin supplementation elicits changes in the salivary protein profiles in cancer patients – changes that may be influential in helping to protect taste buds and odor perception.
