Curcumin may treat intractable brain tumor

The January 2008 issue of Life Extension Magazine reported that recent research has found curcumin may be a useful adjutant therapy in the treatment of glioblastoma, a difficult-to-treat form of brain cancer.  Malignant gliomas are aggressive tumors due to their resistance to chemotherapy and radiation.

The researches examined the effect of curcumin on various human and rodent glioma cells lines in the laboratory.  Curcumin reduced the survival of cancerous cells and also made the cells more sensitive to chemotherapy agents and radiation.
