A new US study says that cardamom – a plant of Indian origin, can help you fight triple-negative breast cancer cells. The discovery could enable scientists to look for new ways to fight cancers that can develop resistance to common treatments. Cardamom has many natural properties including therapeutic properties. According to researchers from the University of Florida Agricultural and Mechanical, this plant may help fight triple-negative breast cancer cells. Its effectiveness is attributed to cardamom, a natural ingredient present in the spice.

Triple-negative breast cancer is a significant health problem because it is difficult to treat. The Institut Curie Research Center explains that they grow on the surface of cancer cells without any known markers that would respond to a known targeted therapy.

To conduct their research, Dr. Patricia Mendonca and her colleagues studied the effects of cardamom on two triple-negative breast cancer cell lines – one made from the cells of African American women and the other from the cells of Caucasian women.

Triple-negative breast cancer is a significant health problem because it is difficult to treat. The Institut Curie Research Center explains that they grow on the surface of cancer cells without any known markers that would respond to a known targeted therapy.

To conduct their research, Dr. Patricia Mendonca and her colleagues studied the effects of cardamom on two triple-negative breast cancer cell lines – one made from the cells of African American women and the other from the cells of Caucasian women.

The researchers looked at how cardamom affected the expression of the ligand-1 (PD-L1) gene, which is responsible for programmed cell death. The study reports that in patients with triple-negative breast cancer, PD-L1 is over-expressed, “and plays an important role in helping to ward off breast cancer cells from the body’s immune system.”

Researchers found that cardamom treatment can reduce the viability of cancer cells in both African-American and Caucasian patients. Furthermore, it reduced PD-L1 expression in the Caucasian cell line but not the African American cell line.

“This is the first study to describe the inhibitory effect of cardamom on the expression of PD-L1, which is relevant to the treatment of triple-negative breast cancer,” Mendonca said. “These findings add support for other research that has shown differences in the tumor microenvironment between African and non-African Americans.” More research is needed before the treatment can be tested on humans.
