Strawberries Shown to Prevent Breast Cancer Growth

  • Study on mice demonstrates the action of strawberries against breast cancer

A new study has shown that strawberry extract can inhibit the spread of laboratory-grown breast cancer cells, even when they are inoculated in female mice to induce tumors.

The cancer cells used in the experiments were from a highly aggressive and invasive strain. The extract decreased the cells' ability to survive, blocked it from multiplying, and inhibited its ability to migrate throughout the body.

Strawberry extract also reduced the expression of several genes involved in the processes of metastasis, such as Csf1, Mcam, Nr4a3 and Set.

The extract simultaneously stimulated expression of the gene Htatip2, which is thought to suppress metastasis to the lymphatic ganglion in breast cancer patients, researchers said.

Strawberries have been found to have many health benefits.

Scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies studied mice with Alzheimer's symptoms and found that when they were given fisetin, a type of flavonol that's found in strawberries, they began producing anti-inflammatory molecules, and both memory loss and learning impairments were prevented. An 18-year British study of nearly 93,600 women found that those who ate the most blueberries and strawberries - three or more servings a week - reduced their risk of a heart attack by a third when compared to women who ate berries once a month or less.

The data collected also showed that supplementing diet with strawberry extract had served to stop the propagation of cancer cells to adjacent healthy tissue.

The researchers used female laboratory mice in the in vivo model, which at one month of age were divided into a group that was given a standard diet and a group that was given an enriched diet, 15 percent of which was strawberry extract.

Scientists have demonstrated how strawberries may benefit the treatment of breast cancer in a study with mice.

They then monitored the tumors two times a week by palpation and after five weeks, the tumors were extracted and analyzed to evaluate their weight and volume.

Maurizio Battino, who is co-author of the paper and a principal investigator at the Marche Polytechnic University in Italy and the European University of the Atlantic in Santander in Spain, says the results of this study are definitely valid for gaining an understanding of potential effects of strawberries on breast cancer.

Dr Battino said: 'The majority of diseases, including cancer, are complex, and involve complex interactions between cellular and molecular systems that determine the development of the disease.

The researchers also said that the concentration of phenolic compounds can vary greatly between varieties of strawberry.

The new study presents promising results on the potential positive effects of the fruit to prevent or treat breast cancer.
