Chokeberry increases success of pancreatic drug treatment

2014 Research

In a laboratory study using pancreatic cancer cells chokeberry extract seemed to increase the effectiveness of gemcitabine.

Researchers tested an extract of chokeberry – a plant found on the eastern side of the USA – on pancreatic cancer cells treated with chemotherapy alone, chokeberry extract alone, or with a combination of both.

The study was carried out by researchers from Middlesex University, University of Southampton, Portsmouth University and Kings College Hospital.

The study was published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Clinical Pathology.
