The Journal of Anticancer Research has recently published a research that showed that the extract liposomal curcumin of turmeric, can be an effective alternative to chemo treatment, in individuals that are suffering from pancreatic cancer.
The researchers performed this study through in vitro with mice.
What is liposomal curcumin?

The advances in pancreatic cancer
Pancreatic cancer is well known for its poor response to conventional treatments. According to the American Cancer Society, there is only a 14 percent, 5-year survival rate for the individuals that are suffering from this type of cancer. The number drops further to 1 percent for the people with phase IV.
The researchers also reveal that surgical treatments, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy, have some positive effects when it comes to shrinking the tumor, and the patients survive over 5 years, but there is a high chance of the reappearance of cancer.
Nonetheless, the turmeric extract that was recently researched, revealed that it can suppress the growth of the tumor with a 42 percent greater efficiency when compared to the control subjects.
The researchers concluded that the data clearly showed the efficacy of this extract, when it comes to reducing the human pancreatic cancer growth. Because of the fact that it provides no side-effects, liposomal curcumin is a good choice for the treatment of patients that are suffering from pancreatic cancer.
