More hope for metastatic cancer patients

Our results indicate that PGE2 ( a prostaglndin) plays an essential role in the up-regulation of MMP-9 ( a collagenase that breaks through basement membranes spreading cancer) gene expression in bone marrow–derived Dendritic Cells.

This is from an article cited here

If in fact PGE2 diminution can diminish MMP-9 then in fact we need to consume things that decrease PGE2 and decrease consumption of items that increase PGE2. It is a worthy task for you medical students and first year residents who are studying this now. Give me a buzz 713-882-7209 until , or e-mail at
