Black cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa) in tamoxifen-treated breast cancer patients with climacteric complaints – a prospective observational study


Rostock, Matthias (contact); Fischer, Julia; Mumm, Andreas; Stammwitz, Ute; Saller, Reinhard; Bartsch, Hans Helge

Objective: The antihormonal therapy of breast cancer patients with the anti-estrogen tamoxifen often induces or aggravates menopausal complaints. As estrogen substitution is contraindicated, herbal alternatives, e.g. extracts of black cohosh are often used.

Progesterone Inhibits Growth and Induces Apoptosis in Cancer Cells Through Modulation of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS)


Syed, Viqar (contact); Nguyen, Huyen

Objective. Progesterone (P4) has been implicated as a protective factor for ovarian and endometrial cancers, yet little is known about its mechanism of action. The goal of this study was to assess the effect of P4 on cell growth, ROS generation, oxidative stress markers and the expression of antioxidant proteins. more
