Los Angeles: Researchers led by an Indian-origin scientist have found that mushroom supplemented Soybean extract can help lengthen the life span in prostate cancer patients. The study, led by Indian-origin researcher Paramita Ghosh and her team at University of California-Davis, was conducted in prostate cancer cells and in mice, and has found that a natural product called genistein-combined polysaccharide (GCP) could help lengthen the life expectancy of certain prostate cancer patients. Men with prostate cancer that has spread to other parts of the body, known as metastatic cancer, and who have had their testosterone lowered with drug therapy are most likely to benefit from this study. Lowering of testosterone, also known as androgen-deprivation therapy, has long been the standard of care for patients with metastatic prostate cancer, but life expectancies vary widely for those who undergo this treatment. The current findings hold promise for GCP therapy as a way to extend life expectancy of patients with low response to androgen-deprivation therapy.
