Scholarcy highlights

  • If you have the appropriate software installed, you can download article citation data to the citation manager of your choice
  • Number of tumors formed and time to tumor onset for each mouse were recorded through tumor harvest after week 24
  • Time to tumor onset was significantly shorter in control mice compared to mice receiving either oral or topical curcumin
  • A significant difference in the average number of tumors formed per mouse was seen, as fewer tumors were formed in the oral curcumin and topical curcumin groups, compared with respective controls
  • Curcumin appears to inhibit skin cancer formation and prolong time to tumor onset when administered by either an oral or topical route. These data suggest that curcumin may have chemopreventive potential against skin cancer, necessitating future experimentation with human subjects
