A French study published in Oncotarget revealed that curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, both slowed tumor growth and reduced tumor mass. The study focuses on sarcomatoid mesothelioma - one of the rarest and deadliest forms.
The plant based drug has been the subject of much research in the mesothelioma field due to its natural anti-inflammatory properties. While curcumin has shown promising results, it’s still in the animal test phase. One of the author’s of the study, Dr. Pouliquen stated that, ““The treatment of tumor-bearing rats with 1.5 mg/kg curcumin on days 7, 9, 11 and 14 after tumor challenge dramatically reduced the mean total tumor mass at day 16.” Dr. Pouliquen went on to say that, ““These data open up interesting new prospects for the therapy of sarcomatoid mesothelioma with curcumin and its derivatives.”
