BIRM Prostate Supplement
A very difficult product to get but it works.
Results: BIRM inhibited cell proliferation and clonogenic growth of the CaP cells (IC(50) about 8.0 microl/ml). It increased cell accumulation in the G(0)/G(1) phase by 33.8% and decreased the proportion of cells in S phase by 54.6%. Apoptotic cell death in BIRM-treated cells was associated with activation of cell death-associated caspases. BIRM inhibited the activity of hyaluronidase, a hyaluronic acid-degrading enzyme, at 1 microl/ml. Treatment of MAT LyLu tumor-bearing rats with BIRM by oral gavage resulted in a significant decrease in tumor incidence (50%), tumor growth rate (18.6+/-1.3 days for 1 cc tumor growth in control rats and 25.7+/-2.6 days in BIRM-treated rats), and only one out of six BIRM-treated rats versus four out of six in the control group developed lung metastasis. Three active ingredients in BIRM with a relative molecular mass (Mr) of >or=3500 were identified by ultracentrifugation and gel filtration chromatography and were found to be resistant to proteinase and heat (100 degrees C).
Conclusion: The plant extract BIRM contains antitumor compounds of Mr >or=3500 with potent antiproliferative activity in vitro and in vivo against prostate cancer cells.
