[The influence of soybean proteins on melanoma B-16 growth versus free-radical mechanisms in tumor-bearing animals].
Vopr Onkol. 2006;52(3):346-8. PMID: 17191710
The study deals with antitumor action of soybean proteins as natural bio-mediators for alleviating side-effects of chemotherapy. The influence of soybean proteins on antibody formation and free-radical mechanisms in blood serum was assessed in melanoma B-16-bearing mice. Use of soybean proteins was followed by a 65% rise in inhibition of tumor growth and an 1.4-fold increase in survival time. In particular, an enhanced level of antibody formation cells in the spleen and normalization of oxidative processes in blood serum were reported.
