A specific mixture of Chinese and American herbs may be an effective treatment for prostate cancer, according to researchers at New YorkMedical College. In an address at the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) 10th Annual Research Conference in Washington, DC, Dr. Geliebter described the promising results observed when prostate cancer is treated with the combination of eight plants known as PC-SPES. PC-SPES appeared to lower levels of PSA (prostate-specific antigen) in patients with prostate cancer. PC-SPES is an over-the-counter food supplement sold as a refined powder containing eight different plant species: Isatis, Licorice, Lucid ganoderma, Pseudo-ginseng, Rubescens, Saw palmetto and Scute.
