Potential Treatment Of Aggressive Breast Cancer Discovered

March 29, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
In lab experiments, U.S. scientists who treated triple negative breast cancer tissues with rosehip extract found a significant reduction in growth and migration of cells. Exposure to the highest concentration of rosehip extract cut triple negative breast cancer cell proliferation by 50 percent. The result was reduced with smaller concentrations. Rosehips are the fruit of the rose plant; triple negative breast cancer is a particularly aggressive form that resists current treatments. When combined with the breast cancer chemotherapy drug doxorubicin, the extract enhanced its ability to decrease cell multiplication and migration.
