Food therapy: Dietary Carrot In Attenuated Onset and Treatment of Prostate Cancer

Kyle J. Norton

Carrots may have a profound and positive effect in reduced risk, progression and treatment of prostate cancer, some scientists suggested.

Prostate cancer is a condition characterized by cell growth disorderly and uncontrollably in prostate tissue. At the later stage, the cancerous cells may infect other healthy tissue and organ a distance away from the original site.

Carrot, a root vegetable with orange color is a sub spices of Daucus carota, belongings to the family Apiaceae, native to Asian and Europe.

In the study to verify the effect of carrots in risk of prostate cancer by reviewing publication of literature in August 2013 of PubMed, EMBASE, Scopus, Web of Science, the Cochrane register, and the Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure databases, and the references of the retrieved articles, researchers at the Zhejiang University found that intake of carrot demonstrated a significantly reduced risk of prostate cancer with the odd ratio of .82 in compared to non serving group.

Risk of prostate cancer was decreased by 5% and 6% in intake of a weekly portion of 10 g of carrot increment without precipitating adverse effect.

Dr. Xu X, the lead author suggested that intake of carrot frequently with limit volume may have a profound effect in reduced prostate cancer risk.

Further analysis of the potential effect of lycopene extract found abundantly in tomato and carrot in decreased risk of onset and treatment of prostate cancer indicated that lycopene inhibited prostate cancer proliferation through modulated the expression of PI3K/Akt pathway prostate cancer cell lines  in regulating cancerous cellular functions including metabolism, growth, proliferation.

Dysfunction of the PI3K/Akt pathway was associated to a number of human diseases including cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and neurological diseases.

Moreover, application of lycopene also displayed a strong effect in inhibited the proliferation of androgen-dependent prostateLNCaP cancer cells through the activation of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) with function to act as a tumor suppressor in prostate cells due to it activity in induction of  agonist ligands in inhibited growth of prostate cancer cells.

Additionally, the phytochemical also expressed a significant activity in exhibited the liver X receptor alpha (LXRα) in reduce proliferation of human oral cancer cells by promoting cell cycle arrest through increased expression of the cyclindependent kinase inhibitor p27, a tumor suppressor and promoted function of extracellular ATP-binding cassette transporter 1 (ABCA1) pathway in inhibited tumor growth through modulation of macrophage function within the tumor, and in established a link between cholesterol homeostasis and cancer.

Application of lycopene (10 μM) in the presence of a specific antagonist of PPARγ (GW9662) or LXRα (GGPP) exerted a huge effect in reduced liver X receptor α knockdown in induction of resistance against LXRα  in promoted the proliferation of DU145 cells.

Interestingly, lycopene in combination with the LXRα agonist T0901317, a potent chemical compound used in assays, exhibited anti prostate cell proliferative activity through interaction with protein expression of PPARγ, LXRα and ABCA1 in initiated cancer cell apoptosis.

In conclusion, Dr. Yang CM, the lead authors said, "These results demonstrate that lycopene can inhibit DU145 cell proliferation via PPARγ-LXRα-ABCA1 pathway and that lycopene and T0901317 exhibit synergistic effects".

The result findings strongly suggested that long term intake of carrot in moderate amounts may have substantial implication in prevention and treatment of prostate cancer. But Intake of carrot supplement should be taken with care to prevent acute liver toxicity.
