Traditional medicine treats pancreatic cancer

As a cancer survivor I have to say that pancreatic cancer is terrifying because it generally presents so late in the disease process. I am thrilled to pass along any good news in its treatment. Researchers at the Kimmel Cancer at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia have found that thymoquinone, an extract of nigella sativa seed oil, blocked pancreatic cancer cell growth and killed the cells by enhancing the process of programmed cell death. This herb has been part of Middle Eastern Traditional medicine for many years.
