0082. Immunologic and Biochemical Effects of the Fermented Wheat Germ Extract

Immunologic and Biochemical Effects of the Fermented Wheat Germ Extract Avemar

Illmer, C., Madlener, S., Horvath, Z., Saiko, P., Losert, A., Herbacek, I., Grusch, M., Krupitza, G., Fritzer-Szekeres,M., Szekeres,T. Experimental Biology and Medicine 2005, 230:144-149.

Background: This paper describes a number of different laboratory tests that were used to try to explain the positive effects seen in patients with colon cancer in previous clinical studies.  The studies found that Avemar, a fermented Wheat Germ extract, uses a number of different means to produce these positive effects.  One way Avemar improves the survival of colon cancer patients is by targeting the cancer cells and killing them and by slowing down their growth.  Another method described was by reducing the amount of enzymes available for DNA synthesis (an indirect way of slowing down the growth of cancer cells) and by inhibiting two enzymes, COX-1 and COX-2 that are associated with the growth of colon cancers. Vitamin C, a potent anti-oxidant, used along with Avemar slowed down the growth of the colon cancer cells even more than with Avemar alone.
