Does Pau d’arco help against cancer?

Pau d’arco has anticancer activities in laboratory studies, but these effects have not been shown in humans. Small studies showed that Pau d’arco may help prevent oral mucositis in patients with head and neck cancer from radiotherapy. Mucositis is a type of inflammation of the mouth. Modern preparations in the form of oral tablets are marketed as dietary supplements to treat cancer. Pau d’arco induces apoptosis in cancer cells.
