Hormone Therapy Plus Fasting May Help Fight Disease

Researchers at Milan’s IFOM Cancer Institute and the University of Southern California recently published some interesting results in the Nature journal. Among more than thirty female participants, those that were treated with hormone therapy and a diet mimicking fasting appeared to show promising findings. Using mice as part of the research, the results also showed that tumors may be shrunk or even reversed.

The researchers say the pair of small clinical trials are feasibility studies that have shown bright results but are not conclusive in any way. They propose the findings support more clinical trials of a fasting-mimicking diet that is used in hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer in conjunction with endocrine therapy.
