Abstract:
Consumption of a plant-based diet has been associated with prevention of the development and progression of cancer. We have developed strategies to inhibit cancer by increasing the stability and integrity of connective tissue as the common mechanisms used by all types of cancer cells for their development and spread. This can be achieved naturally through the synergistic effects of selected nutrients, such as lysine, proline, ascorbic acid and green tea extract (NM).

Introduction:
Five-year survival is limited to 60% in renal cancer patients at diagnosis. Due to the cancer’s resistance to conventional treatments and associated high morbidity, we investigated the antimetastatic effects of a specific nutrient mixture (NM) containing lysine, proline, arginine, ascorbic acid, and green tea extract on human renal adenocarcinoma cell line 786-0 by measuring: cell proliferation, modulation of MMP-2 and –9 secretion, and cancer cell invasive potential.

Introduction:
A hallmark of renal cell carcinoma RCC) invasion is its ability to degrade ECM by local production of gelatinase enzymes. Although many studies on RCC have demonstrated the importance of MMPs, very little information is currently known regarding the effect of inducers and inhibitors. We therefore investigated the effect of inducers and inhibitors on RCC 786-0 in vitro.

Aims:
Bladder cancer, the fourth incident cancer in men and tenth in women, is associated with a high rate of recurrence, even when treated in situ, and prognosis is poor once the cancer metastasizes to distant sites. Based on anticancer properties, we investigated the effect of a mixture of lysine, proline, arginine, ascorbic acid, and green tea extract on human bladder cancer cells T-24 by measuring: proliferation, MMP expression, and cancer cell invasive potential.
