Senior honors thesis / Open Access
The research into nutraceuticals has the potential to radically improve cancer treatments. Whereas current methods, such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy, have detrimental effects on healthy cells and debilitating holistic effects on the body, nutraceuticals can assist in preventing the growth and metastasis of cancerous cells without causing harm to healthy cells. In vitro experiments showed that the apple extract nutraceutical successfully prevented the proliferation and / or migration of the oral carcinoma cells without causing significant harm to healthy cells. Research in the laboratory of in vitro toxicology at Stern College for Women demonstrated that apple extract functions via an alternative mechanism to the antioxidant or prooxidant routes. Apple extract has the potential to prevent or cure oral cancers.
