Natural Substance Noscapine Found Effective Against Advanced Prostate Cancer

Have you ever heard of a substance called noscapine? I would guess not; I have not, either.

Noscapine is said to be a naturally-occurring substance which is a non-addictive derivative of opium. It has been effectively and safely used as a cough suppressant for more than half a century. And recent research carried out on mice has found the natural substance to be effective against advanced prostate cancer.

The study was conducted by the Prostate Cancer Research and Educational Foundation, the MedInsight Research Institute and the University of California in San Diego. It found that noscapine reduced tumor growth in mice by some 60%. In addition, it stopped the spread of tumors by 65%.

Importantly, it caused no adverse side effects. With its long track record as a cough suppressant, its safety for human use is quite beyond question.

The bad news for prostate cancer sufferers is, that the substance is unlikely to be absorbed into mainstream prostate cancer treatment anytime in the near future. The main and usual reason is, of course, money.
