Black raspberries reduce DNA damage in oral cancer survivors

New research presented Wednesday, April 10, at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting 2013 in Washington, DC, suggests that a food-based cancer prevention study aimed at oral cancer survivors was effective at attenuating highly reactive oxygen molecules that can damage DNA and trigger cancer. In the study, a phase 1b clinical trial conducted at The Ohio State University, participants consumed 4 – 8 grams of black raspberries daily for six months. The berries were well tolerated by the participants and adherence to the regimen was good.

This study provides compelling data that indicate biochemical markers of cancer-causing DNA damage were reduced in participants who adhered to the food-based regimen and supports other evidence from a phase 2 human trial linking application of black raspberry gel to precancerous lesions to a reduced risk of developing oral cancer.

Black raspberries, not to be confused with blackberries, are almost exclusively grown in Oregon, on the west coast of the United States. They have been studied extensively because of their high concentration of certain phytonutrients and antioxidants. BerriProducts, an Oregon-based company, has been supplying black raspberry products to research universities across the country for the last four years.
