This study demonstrated the synergistic anticancer effects of lysine, proline, arginine, ascorbic acid and EGCG (from green tea extract) on human breast, colon, prostate, melanoma, fibrosarcoma, and synovial sarcoma cancer cell growth in nude mice without any adverse effects. Nude mice are used since they are athymic, and thus are unable to mount most types of immune responses, including the ability to kill malignant cells by a cell-mediated immune response. The results of this study imply that Nutrient Synergy has great potential as a safe and effective therapeutic regimen for cancer treatment.
