New Complementary and Alternative Medicine Report and Information Posted Online

Cover of NCI Annual Report on Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fiscal Year 2010
In fiscal year 2010, NCI funded more than 400 projects related to complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act supported 27 other CAM grants, according to NCI's Annual Report on Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
Projects highlighted in the report include studies on exercise and cancer prevention, curcumin's role in preventing the spread of prostate cancer, and the effect of altering cellular fats on cancer risk. Researchers are also examining whether various foods can prevent or fight cancer. For instance, blackberries are being studied to determine whether they interfere with the growth of tumors in the oral cavity, esophagus, and colon.
In addition, NCI's Physician Data Query (PDQ®) webpage on Prostate Cancer, Nutrition, and Dietary Supplements has been updated with new information on modified citrus pectin, soy, and pomegranates.
