A herbal supplement called PC Hope has been shown to inhibit pancreatic cancer cell growth and is even capable of promoting cancer cell death. It increases survival significantly but is not yet a cure. The same supplement is effective in reducing PSA in prostate cancer and the pain from metastatic prostate cancer. It does not have the side effects of other treatments available. In the study, at least 60% of subjects reported a more than 30% improvement in their daily functioning ability. Another study indicated a 50% reduction in PSA levels in two thirds of subjects with hormone refractory prostate cancer. It also caused a decrease in the size of the cancer. Most current prostate cancer treatments produce an improvement in quality of life in the short term but do not improve survival. Also, many have significant side effects.
