Studies on Saffron
Saffron extract has been shown to be capable of inhibiting and/or retarding the growth of tumors in a variety of experimental models?in vivo.?A topical application inhibited second-stage skin cancer, and oral administration of saffron extract restricted soft tissue sarcomas and inhibited tumor cell growth in mice. Several studies combined indicated that saffron also may be a promising agent for reducing the side effects from cisplatin (an early, often used cancer drug), including nephrotoxicity (toxicity in the kidneys).
