Scientists have discovered the antitumor quality of cucumber

An international team of scientists discovered a new biologically active compound, Feldozid A, isolated from cuckourie (marine echinoderma of the class of holothurians, akin to trepang) - it can kill tumor cells resistant to classical chemotherapy, the press service of the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) reported. The group includes scientists from the Far Eastern Federal University, the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, as well as Germany and Switzerland.

Reportedly, the studies were carried out on cultures of tumor cells, there will be an additional test on living organisms. According to scientists, the data are valuable for basic science, since a new biological property of a previously known substance has been discovered. Moreover, the results can be used in practical medicine.

The research results are published in the scientific journals BMC Cancer and Leukemia & Lymphoma.
