Does Mistletoe (European) help against cancer?

Mistletoe therapy may improve symptoms and quality of life for cancer patients, but definitive information is still lacking. most scientific research has only evaluated intravenous or injected formulations that are not approved as prescription drugs in the United States. Basic research shows that mistletoe extracts may stimulate the immune system to fight cancer. Studies in humans show that mistletoe treatment may improve symptoms and reduce side effects of cancer treatments, but it has some effects on survival. More studies are needed to see if mistletoe can be used as supportive therapy in cancer care. Studies support the use of mistletoe to improve symptoms and quality of life, and reduce chemotherapy and radiotherapy side effects, including in pancreatic, lung, colorectal, and breast cancers. Some studies suggest it may help prolong survival, but other study results are mixed. Mistletoe extract injection may be efficacious for chemical pleurodesis in patients with malignant pleural effusion. Long-term use may also reduce T-cell function in cancer patients which could be harmful.
