Artemisinin

Category: Herbal

A Chinese herb, sweet wormwood ('qinghao' in Chinese). In test tube studies, breast cancer cell research resulted in a 28% reduction of breast cancer cells treated only with artemisinin, and an amazing 98% decrease in breast cancer cells within 16 hours that were treated with artemisinin and an iron-enhancing molecule, transferrin. These treatments had no significant effect on normal human breast cells. This research pointed to the involvement of free iron in the toxic effect of artemisinin toward cancer cells, while basically sparing healthy cells. (Selective toxicity of dihydroartemisinin and holotransferrin toward human breast cancer cells, Life Sciences 70 {2001) 49-56
