Description: City of Hope researchers and study authors Shiuan Chen, Ph.D., and Lynn Adams, Ph.D. discuss the results of a recent research study on the effects of blueberries on breast cancer.

Chen, research fellow Lynn S. Adams, Ph.D., and their colleagues applied blueberry extracts to TNBC cell cultures and found that blueberry extract not only inhibits proliferation and mobility in TNBC cells, it also led to cell death (apoptosis) at over twice the rate of untreated cells.

Chen, Adams and others then tested blueberry extracts effectiveness in laboratory animal models. The researchers found that the blueberry groups TNBC tumor weight was 70 percent lighter than the control group and it also exhibited significantly lower proliferation and higher apoptosis activity.
