What is IJOP?
This Journal was launched as a channel of information from cutting edge scientific research to practitioners of phytotherapy to put this understanding on a firm scientific basis to be viewed more as a logical approach and less as “alternative” medicine.
What’s new in IJOP?
The main feature article of this edition of IJOP describes research aimed at developing a test for cancer that will allow much earlier diagnosis than is presently available. The article describes two new cancer diagnostic blood tests. The first directly measures the levels of the CYP1B1 protein in the bloodstream. In normal volunteers the level of CYP1B1 is vanishingly small but this level is highly elevated in cancer patients which makes it useful for early cancer diagnosis. The second test measures the salvestrol metabolites that result from CYP1B1 activity. The levels of unreacted salvestrol and activated salvestrol metabolites are measured in the bloodstream and this gives an indication of how well the salvestrols are working by providing evidence for their metabolism.
