Thai doctors make a cancer treatment breakthrough with sesame

Dr. Prachya Kongthaweelert, deputy associate professor at The Thailand Excellence Center for Tissue Engineering and Stem Cells at Chiang Mai University, said that, while black sesame seeds look simple enough, they have very beneficial properties to those with cancer.

He and his team have discovered that extracting “Sesamin,” a natural chemical compound from the seeds, and using it as part of cancer treatment  can slow or stop the growth of cancer cells and create an environment in the body that stimulate antibodies, according to Thai PBS.

Dr. Prachya clarified that researchers worldwide have experimented with the Sesamin compound, but his team has taken the next step by injecting the compound directly into active and developing cancer cells that are one week old.

The team also presented a 21-year-old Lymphoma patient that has gone into remission since combining Sesamin treatment with her chemotherapy.

The woman was diagnosed two years ago and underwent chemo to kill the cancerous cells. She recovered somewhat and then added Sesamin extract to her treatment. She found that it helped speed up her recovery.
