Retinoic Acid Inhibits Leukemia Cells


Retinoic Acid Inhibits Leukemia Cells

Incubation of leukemia cells with retinoic acid resulted in marked inhibition of cell growth and the expression of CD25 in some HTLV-1-positive T-cell clones. Retinoic acid did not affect normal lymphocytes. This suggests that retinoic acid may be suitable for the treatment of patients with adult T-cell leukemia.

Suggestions: If you have leukemia, take water-soluble liquid vitamin A and vitamin D3. An alternative to taking vitamin A is to ask your doctor to prescribe retinoic acid drugs such as Vesanoid that may be more effective than vitamin A in treating leukemia. If you are going to take more than 5,000 IU of vitamin A per day to treat cancer, call the Life Extension Foundation for vitamin A precautions.
