Berry to boost cancer care?

Thursday September 18th, 2014

A berry found in North America could improve the effectiveness of cancer treatments, British researchers reveal today.

The chokeberry grows in the eastern USA in swamps and wetlands.

According to the new research, it could be given as a "nutraceutical" - a pill made from its extract - to enhance treatment.

The laboratory research, reported in the Journal of Clinical Pathology, showed that cancer cells died after 48 hours of exposure to the berry extract.

Researchers also found the berry had no impact on normal blood vessels.

Researchers at Southampton University, UK, and King's College Hospital, London, UK, worked together on the project.

Researcher Bashir Lwaleed said he believed the findings were "very exciting."
