Treatment with soybean-derived Bowman Birk inhibitor increases serum prostate-specific antigen concentration while suppressing growth of human prostate cancer xenografts in nude mice.

BACKGROUND: Bowman Birk inhibitor (BBI) is an anticarcinogenic serine protease inhibitor that may inhibit the protease activity of prostate-specific antigen ( PSA) and the growth of human prostate cancer xenografts in nude mice. METHODS: Human prostate cancer xenografts were established by implanting LNCaP cells into the prostate glands of NCRNU-M athymic nude mice. The animals with established tumors were maintained on a control diet or diets supplemented with 1% BBI or 1%, 2%, or 3% BBI concentrate (BBIC) for 6 weeks. The serum PSA concentrations were determined before and after the BBI or BBIC treatment period. The final tumor loads were determined at autopsy. RESULTS: Treatment with BBI or BBIC decreased the final tumor load and increased the tumor doubling time and PSA density in the nude mice bearing human prostate cancer xenografts. CONCLUSIONS: BBI and/or BBIC could be useful for prostate cancer treatment.[1]
