Washington: Tea tree oil may be used in future as a fast, safe, cheap and effective treatment for non-melanoma skin cancers, says a new research.A three-year study at The University of Western Australia`s Tea Tree Oil Research Group has found solid tumours grown under the skin in mice and treated with a tea tree oil formulation inhibits tumour growth and tumour regresses within a day of treatment.
"We believe the formulation is crucial to prevent the evaporation and increase the penetration of tea tree oil through the skin," Greay said in a university release. Tea tree oil is a natural, renewable resource from Melaleuca alternifolia, a tree native to New South Wales. Increased demand for the oil would strengthen the industry and, besides the medical benefits, would also benefit the rural communities based on the production of the oil. These findings were published online in the Cancer Chemotherapy Pharmacology. IANS
