Description: The NCI's Office of Cancer Complementary and Alternative Medicine (OCCAM) invites you to view its monthly lecture series.

With the goal of informing the National Cancer Institute (NCI) community about the variety of ongoing research in cancer and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), NCI's Office of Cancer Complementary and Alternative Medicine (OCCAM) has created a monthly lecture series on cancer CAM. These hour long lectures, occurring from 10 a.m. - 11 a.m. on the second Wednesday of each month, will feature a fifty minute presentation on a cancer CAM topic and allow ten minutes for questions.

Abstract: (CIT): In the research identifying bioactive natural compounds, a critical discovery was made that a natural compound rubusoside (RUB) has solubilizing properties. General applicability was shown over a wide spectrum of pharmaceutical compounds including paclitaxel, vitamin D3, progesterone, propofol, cyclosporine, etoposide, Co-Q10, roxithromycin, curcumin, quercetin, resveratrol, genistein, and others with enhancement ranging from 2- to over one million-fold. The underlying mechanisms of solubility-enablement, cell uptake and transport mechanisms, and toxicology of RUB remain new knowledge to gain.
