A study, conducted by researchers from Mansoura University, revealed that thymoquinone can lower the risk of cancer and inhibit tumor progression. This study, which was published in the Australian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences, evaluated the preventive and therapeutic anti-cancer properties of thymoquinone in an in vivo model of Ehrlich ascites carcinoma.
Results of the experiment showed that thymoquinone possesses potent anti-cancer properties. These properties were observed to be more effective when thymoquinone is given prior to Ehrlich ascites carcinoma rather than after. Based on this, it can be determined that thymoquinone is more effective in preventing rather than treating cancer.
