  5. 5. Tainan-US research team uses vitamin E to fight cancer Joint research by National Cheng Kung University and Ohio State University has identified the role vitamin E plays in fighting cancer, NCKU announced this month. It was previously known from studies on mice that vitamin E had anti-cancer properties, but the precise mechanism by which it worked was unclear until a team led by Chen Ching-shih, a professor at both schools, conducted its research. “Our goal is to develop a safe pill at the right dose that can be taken daily to prevent cancer,” Chen said. “Vitamin E is well-known for its health properties, but the research was the first to clarify the precise mechanism by which it fought cancer. “In this research, assistant professor Huang Po-hsien of NCKU’s Institute of Basic Medical Sciences in Tainan found a component of vitamin E—known as tocopherol—that can control the enzyme AKT and hamper growth of cancerous cells.” Huang’s group refined and improved the molecular structure of the gamma-tocopherol to produce a drug 20 times more powerful in preventing the growth of cancerous cells. But as the dosages used in the research were very high, they cannot be absorbed by the human body under normal circumstances, Huang said. Further studies will be necessary before a clinically useful medicine can be produced. The team's results were published in the journal Science Signaling(SDH) recenty.
