What is Smilax glabra? Does it work against cancer?

Smilax glabra is a plant that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine. Smilax has not been shown to treat or prevent cancer. Lab studies show that this plant has anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties. However, clinical studies have not been conducted and it is not known if the same effects would occur in humans. Anticancer effects of Smilax glabra may be due to its ability to induce apoptosis which is a type of cell death. The process of apoptosis may be blocked in cancer cells.
