British researchers have found that mannos are effective in inhibiting tumor growth and can be used in the future for cancer treatment, The Indepedent reports.
The study showed that the high glucose appetite for the tumors that benefit their growth can be used to their disadvantage by administering this type of sugar, mannose, which can not be treated so easily.
Clinical trials conducted in guinea pigs with pancreas, lung or skin tumors have shown that mannos significantly slow down growth without any other side effects.
Not only have tumors developed but also decreased, which increases the life span. At the same time, guinea pigs received the drug called doxorubicin.
At the moment, just hope that the effects will resemble people. However, clinical trials on humans will soon begin when they decide and how much the amount of optimal mannose is, so that healthy cells are not affected.
It is hoped that chemotherapy treatments will be halved through the introduction of manic treatment.
