Team hopes that the results of the research will stimulate further research on how resveratrol can be used to fight cancer

Another study demonstrates the advantages of resveratrol (compound present in grape skins and red wine) in the treatment of various cancers.

According to the results of research conducted at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Missouri (UM), treatment with isolated resveratrol killed 44% of the cells of a melanoma. When combined with the radiation ratio was 65% effective in the elimination of tumor cells.

"Our study shows many advantages in the use of resveratrol in the treatment of a variety of cancers. One example is the combined use of resveratrol and radiation in the treatment of symptomatic metastatic tumors of the brain or spinal said Michael Nicholl, one of the responsible by the search.

<b> Difficulty in delivery </ b>

One of the biggest obstacles of treatment is to take the compound directly to the cancer cell. "Because of difficulties in delivering adequate amounts of resveratrol to melanoma tumors, the compound is not an effective treatment for advanced melanoma at this time, says researcher .

Despite the difficulties encountered, the team hopes that these findings will stimulate further research on how resveratrol can be used to fight cancer, and especially in finding ways to bring the compound to diseased cells.

Nicholl closes no warning that recommends patients seek treatments using resveratrol supplements. He recalls that recently published study in the American Journal of Pathology warns against the use of resveratrol supplements for the treatment of multiple sclerosis.
