BACKGROUND Extracts from Viscum album L. (VAL), which are one of the most widely used alternative cancer therapies in Europe, have been recognised to induce apoptosis. A clinically relevant direct anti-tumour effect might be induced only by their intratumoural or intrapleural injection, and thus effectiveness is highly dependent on the apoptosis-inducing potencies of the extracts used. MATERIALS AND METHODS To characterise these properties, human lymphocytes were incubated for 72 hours with… CONTINUE READING
