Phytochemical Carotenoids Ameliorates the Risk of Breast Cancer, According to Study
Breast cancer or malignant breast neoplasm is a medical condition caused by cell growth irregularly in the tissue of the breast.
Most cases of breast cancer start in the cell on the surface of the inner lining tissues of the breast either from the inner lining of milk ducts (Ductal carcinoma) or the lobules (Lobular carcinoma) that supply the ducts with milk.
In 2010, over 250,000 new cases of breast cancer were diagnosed in women in the U.S. alone and the risk of getting invasive breast cancer during the lifetime of women is 1/8.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer worldwide, accounting to over 24% of all cancers diagnosed every year.
The 5 years survival rate of breast cancer in the localized stage is about 100%.
Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC), is aggressive cancer occurred in women of any age that grows in sheets instead of lumps and invades nearby skin, leading to the whole breast which suddenly goes red and feels hot, resembling an inflammation
The rare condition was found in only 1-6% of all breast cancer cases in the USA. Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) should be treated very promptly.
Most common symptoms of IBC are
* Rapid swelling (a cup size in a few days) sometimes
* Skin changes (pink, red, or dark-colored areas)
* Nipple retraction
* Persistent itching, skin hot to touch
* Initially resembles mastitis
* Breast skin ulcers (later stage of IBC)
How danger is IBC? Dr. Ana M. Gonzalez-Angulo, the lead scientist wrote, " (According to the results of the study), the median follow-up was 5.8 years (range, 0.3–23.8 years). There were 238 recurrences and 236 deaths (compared to 398 patients with IBC were treated between 1974 and 2005). The median recurrence-free survival (RFS) duration was 2.3 years and the median overall survival (OS) time was 4.2 years".
Carotenoids is a class of mainly yellow, orange, or red fat-soluble pigments, including lycopene and carotene, found abundantly in ripe tomato, pumpkins, carrots, corn, and daffodils.
On finding a potential compound for the treatment of cancer, researchers examined the protective role of carotenoids against the onset of breast cancer.
The study included a total of 521 women with breast cancer and age-matched controls (5-year interval) selected from three teaching hospitals in Guangzhou, China.
According to the chemical analysis, phytochemicals α-carotene, β-carotene, β-cryptoxanthin, lycopene and lutein/zeaxanthin are found in serum carotenoids,
* Serum α-carotene, β-carotene, lycopene, lutein/zeaxanthin are associated inversely with the risk of breast cancer.
* The relative odds ratio for the highest quartile of serum concentration compared with the lowest quartile were 0·44.
* More precisely, the OR for α-carotene was.44, β-carotene was 0·27 and lycopene was .41 and lutein/zeaxanthin was 0·26.
* β-cryptoxanthin, one of the major compounds was not significant association with the risk for breast cancer.
Based on the stratified analysis, researchers found that serum α-carotene, β-carotene, lycopene and lutein/zeaxanthin were also inversely associated with breast cancer risk among premenopausal women and among all subtypes of ER or PR status.
The results strongly suggested that all chemical compounds in the class of carotenoids work synergistically to decrease the risk of cancer among women.
Dr. Yan B, the lead scientist, after taking other factors into account said, "The results suggest a protective role of α-carotene, β-carotene, lycopene, and lutein/zeaxanthin, but not β-cryptoxanthin, in breast cancer risk.".
Taken altogether, carotenoids may be considered a remedy for the prevention and treatment of breast cancer, pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.
Intake of carotenoids in the form of supplement should be taken with extreme care to prevent overdose acute liver toxicity.
