Although conflict results of ingredient of Indole-3-carbinol in Cruciferous vegetables are still in debate, studies of the effects of I3C in therapeutic potential are still ongoing. In the study to compare the effect of I3C bortezomib and cisplatin in several human ovarian cancer cell lines, showed a positive effects, as co-treatment with I3C and bortezomib significantly inhibited tumour growth and reduced tumour weight compared with either drug alone. Other in the investigation of a a total of 1468 cancers of the oral cavity/pharynx, 505 of the esophagus, 230 of the stomach, 2390 of the colorectum, 185 of the liver, 326 of the pancreas, 852 of the larynx, 3034 of the breast, 367 of the endometrium, 1031 of the ovary, 1294 of the prostate, 767 of the kidney, and 11,492 controls, showed that consumption of cruciferous vegetables at least once a week as compared with no/occasional consumption was significantly reduced for cancer of the oral cavity/pharynx esophagus, colorectum breast, and kidney but not significant, for stomach, liver, pancreatic, laryngeal, endometrial , ovarian, and prostate cancer.
