for treating cancer without any side
Research for eight years, six researchers from Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) managed to produce plant-based natural ingredients of herbs, lempoyang for treating and preventing cervical cancer without any side effects.
Unlike typical synthetic drugs, their findings prove the materials are believed to be among the earliest products of its kind in the world that only kill specific cancer cells without interfering with other normal cells and tissues.
Lead researcher Dr Ahmad Bustamam Abdul said the materials are expected to be marketed in capsule and liquid form, can be used with other commercial and chemotherapy drugs can be taken in high doses without damaging normal tissue.
Lempoyang is of a type called ginger and ginger or wild forest, growing wild in the area of shrubs and flowering plants essentially resembles ginger.
"The material is directly useful for women who have problems with the cervix and after undergoing a pap smear, it is evident there is a sign of cervical cancer.
"It is capable of treating cancer at an early stage before turning to abnormal cancer cells and reduce dependence on synthetic drugs have side effects such as hair loss and interfere with the digestive system," he said at a press conference here yesterday.
The latest discoveries, the cost of treatment of cervical cancer patients expected to be much less expensive, as well as not to be too dependent on imported synthetic drugs and more expensive.
He said the matter was now in the stage of development of commercial class products to market and has already patented and recognized both locally and internationally.
"We hope the local pharmaceutical companies to take advantage of this discovery to market natural materials as anticancer herbal products globally," he said.
Younger rhizomes (above picture) similar to those sold in the markets are used by us for replanting. Older rhizomes are used by us for health supplementation purposes.
Here's a research paper on the anti-inflammatory effect of lempoyang :
The aqueous extract is as effective as reference NSAIDs.
We use the lempoyang as part of our anti-inflammation diet at a dosage of 5 to 10 grams twice a week.
