Lynne Howwels polyphenols 2017


During Vienna Polyphenols World Congress, Dr Lynne Howells from University of Leicester will present the recent study concerning Curcumin in combination with chemotherapy.

According to Dr Howeels: "Combining low toxicity polyphenolic adjuncts with standard-of-care chemotherapy may offer added benefit to patients without increasing side effect burdens. Here, we have taken a bench to bedside approach, examining the effects of curcumin in combination with oxaliplatin-based therapy in colorectal cancer. Promising in vitro and pre-clinical data has led to the work-up of the CUFOX phase I/IIa trial, combining curcumin with FOLFOX-based chemotherapy in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer."

The results of this study will be presented during Vienna Polyphenols World Congress: www.polyphenols-site.com
