A herb from Chinese medicine can reduce the life-threatening effects of chemo-therapy and also support the patient's immune system.


Cancer patients given the Chinese herbal remedy LCS101-made up of 14 different herbs-lost fewer red and white blood cells during chemotherapy, and also reported no adverse reactions. The 65 breast-cancer patients were given LCS101 in 6-g capsules for two weeks before chemotherapy started and throughout the treatment.


The herbs also reduced damage to white blood cells, which play an important role in preventing infection (Oncologist, 2011; 16: doi: 10.1634/theoncologist.2011-0150).
