Hallan propiedades farmacéuticas para tratar la leucemia linfática crónica en un compuesto presente en el brócoli

A compound found in broccoli has pharmacological properties against chronic lymphocytic leukemia

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is the most common elderly leukemia and still is lacking a cure. A variety of immuno-chemotherapy treatments is available, but relapse and development of refractoriness to treatment are common. Studies from the Spanish National Research Council with the collaboration of the Hospitals Gregorio Marañon and de la Princesa, both in Madrid, Spain, have shown the pharmacological usefulness of indole-3-carbinol for the treatment of this disease.
