Red Wine, Grape Skin Against Cancers?

Red wine, grape skin compound could treat cancers

 

A new US study suggests that resveratrol, a compound present in grape skin and red wine, could help treat several cancers. The findings follow earlier similar findings from UM that showed resveratrol sensitizes prostate cancer cells to treatment. The researchers now want to find a way to use the compound to treat a variety of cancers. One of the challenges is finding a means to deliver the compound into tumors. Senior investigator, Michael Nicholl, assistant professor of surgery at the MU School of Medicine, says: “Because of difficulties involved in delivery of adequate amounts of resveratrol to melanoma tumors, the compound is probably not an effective treatment for advanced melanoma at this time.”
