Effects of the coral calcium as an inhibitory substance against colon cancer lung metastasis
In vivo study, the effects of Coral Calcium and calcium carbonate (control) against the Colon 26 cancer cells were compared using mice. The activity of the NK cells and the number of macrophages in the group to which Coral Calcium was administered were greater than those in the group to which calcium carbonate was administered.
Furthermore, in a vivo study, the effects of Coral Calcium concentrations were investigated. Colon 26 cancer cells were inoculated into mice, followed by an investigation of the prophylactic effects (i.e., as a cancer-inhibitory substance) of Coral Calcium against the metastasis of Colon 26 cancer cells in the lungs. The greater the dose of Coral Calcium, the greater the activity of NK cells and the number of macrophages increased. The metastasis of the cancer cells in the lungs was significantly inhibited at a higher dose of Coral Calcium. Coral Calcium exerted an inhibitory effect on the metastases of the cancer cells to the lungs by activating natural killer (NK) cells and macrophages, thus resulting in preventing the proliferation of cancer cells.
