INFLEASE CAPSULES; A Unique Antiinflammatory Agent To Support Immune System In Cancer
Cancer is one of the major threats of modern life and is considered as the second cause of death after myocardial infarction. Millions of people every year die with different types of cancer despite tremendous efforts to find methods of control and cure. Although great advances were made in modern medical science to control disease but disease like cancer is not yet curable fully. Curcumin, commonly called diferuloyl methane, is a hydrophobic polyphenol derived from rhizome (turmeric) of the herb Curcuma longa. Extensive research over the last half century has revealed important functions of curcumin. In vitro and in vivo research has shown various activities, such as anti-inflammatory, cytokines release, antioxidant, immunomodulatory, enhancing of the apoptotic process, and anti-angiogenic properties. Curcumin has also been shown to be a mediator of chemo-resistance and radio-resistance. The anti-cancer effect of Curcumin in INFLEASE capsules has been seen in a few clinical trials, mainly as a native chemoprevention agent in colon and pancreatic cancer, cervical neoplasia and Barrets metaplasia.
