According to statistics, there are 28,000 classes of stomach cancer that exist in the US and the most common is gastric cancer that affects elders aged 65 older. However, a recent study suggests that the whole tomato extract can prevent the growth of malignant cancer cells and soon can be used for future therapies.

The findings published in the Journal of Cellular Physiology, the researchers analyzed the anti-cancer effect of whole tomato extract of both San Marzano and Corbarino. Researchers from the Oncology Research Center of Mercogliano (CROM) then found that these lipophilic extracts can affect the process of stomach cancer cells inside the body.

To achieve and see the result, the researchers tested the effect of the whole tomato extract. The team placed the extract of San Marzano and Corbarino on stomach cancer cell lines and analyzed it.

According to Daniela Barone and Letizia Cito, researchers from the National Cancer Institute of Naples, Pascale Foundation, and CROM said that the result they were able to gather pushed them to have a further assessment on how this whole tomato extract can treat stomach cancer and pave malignant features. However, researchers suggest that not all kinds of tomatoes have the same effect as they have found with both San Marzano and Corbarino, Medical News Today reported.

While on the other hand, various health studies proved that the whole tomato extract is good for the body and consumed worldwide. In fact, this is widely used for the Mediterranean diet, which is popular in lowering cancer risk and one of this is stomach cancer.

As of this moment, the team of Professor Antonio Giordano who was coordinated by Barone, Cito, and other researchers is still in the process of investigating on how this whole tomato extract can be used for therapies. Also, the team is in coordination with the Department of Medicine, Surgery and Neuroscience, University of Siena, and the Pascale Institute.
