An important new study of a new type of Colombian plant that helps fight cancer in people who are too sick to take their own medicine has been published.
The study was funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development.
The Colombian plant is called Capitaneza, which translates to “water from the flower.”
Its roots, called capitanes, are used to treat some of the country’s most severe cancers.
Capitanes have also been used to combat infections, including HIV/AIDS.
The new study is the first to show that Capitanas could also help treat patients with rare cancers that do not respond to traditional treatments.
The findings could lead to new therapies that can be used safely and effectively in cancer patients who are unable to take care of themselves.
“This is a very important step toward finding a cure,” said study co-author Robert R. Saylor, director of the Institute for Integrative Cancer Medicine at Harvard Medical School.
“This is the kind of thing that’s going to change the way cancer is treated.”
The study, published this week in the journal Cancer Letters, examined the effect of the plant on lung cancer patients with stage III and IV cancer.
The lung cancer, which causes lung and blood vessels to swell, is the second most common type of cancer in Colombia, after lung cancer.
The researchers found that patients with lung cancer who took Capitana had fewer aggressive tumors and fewer invasive tumors compared with patients who did not take the drug.
The Capitanos were able to reduce the size of tumors by 30 percent and prevent tumors from growing into organs or organs from other tissues.
The effect was more than twice as great as that of patients taking standard cancer drugs.
In the study, the researchers also showed that patients who took the drug also showed a reduction in their blood pressure, a significant improvement in their cholesterol levels and an increase in their liver enzymes.
This is an important step towards finding a Cure for cancer,” said Dr. Robert R Saylor of Harvard Medical Center.”
Capitaneas could be a new treatment for people who have been in remission for years without taking other conventional medicines,” said co-lead author Dr. Rachael R. Schoenfeld, a cancer researcher at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City.”
The ability to treat cancer in cancer-free patients is something that’s been sorely lacking in medicine for many years,” she added.”
With this study, we have shown that Capitoans could be an effective and safe treatment for cancer patients that are too weak to take traditional medicine,” Schoenfield said.
The findings of the study were supported by the National Cancer Institute.
