Clinical Study Title:
Growth inhibition and protein tyrosine phosphorylation in MCF 7 breast cancer cells by a novel K vitamin.
|Plain English Summary:|
|Certain breast cancer cells have been found to be able to resist being affected by many cancer killing drugs currently available. A new vitamin K form has been found however to have the ability to stop the growth of these types of breast cancer cells. The mechanism for its ability works by affecting the thiols of the cancer cells. The inhibition of the cancer cells was increased with increases in the amounts of the vitamin K that were involved. This new form of vitamin K may be helpful at helping to treat breast cancer in the near future.|
