ABSTRACT. Inositol hexaphosphate (IP6) is a naturally occurring polyphosphorylated carbohydrate that is present in substantial amounts in almost all plant and. Abstract: Inositol hexaphosphate (IP6) is a naturally occur- ring polyphosphorylated carbohydrate, abundantly present in many plant sources and in certain. While IP-6 is found in rice bran and other foods, there are good reasons to take an IP-6 & Inositol supplement. First, IP-6 is getter absorbed in pure form without.

Therefore, IP 6 can reduce carcinogenesis mediated by active oxygen species and cell injury via its antioxidative function. Suppression of large intestinal ipp6 in F rats by inositol hexaphosphate.

Protection against cancer by dietary IP6 and inositol.

The growth of cells of hematopoietic lineage was inhibited: We hypothesized that one of the several ways by which IP 6 plus inositol exerts its action is via lower-phosphate inositol phosphates.

Because it is abundantly present in regular diet, efficiently absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, and safe, IP6 holds great promise in our strategies for the prevention and treatment of cancer. In addition, IP 6 possesses other significant benefits for human health, such as the ability to enhance immune system, prevent pathological calcification and kidney stone formation, lower elevated serum cholesterol, and reduce pathological platelet activity.

A pilot clinical trial. A central molecule is a phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase, which primarily phosphorylates the lipid phosphatidylinositol on the 3 position of the D- myo -inositol ring, yielding phosphatidylinositolphosphate, but also can use phosphorylated forms of phosphatidylinositol as substrates.

Effect of inositol hexaphosphate on growth and differentiation in K erythroleukemia cell line. A summary of in vivo studies using IP 6 and inositol is shown in Table 2. It is known that virtually all animal cells contain inositol phosphates and that the inositol phosphates with fewer phosphate groups, especially Inoositol 3 and IP 4have an important role in cellular signal transduction, regulation of cell function, growth, and differentiation 89.


Antitumor activity of phytic acid inositol hexaphosphate in murine transplanted and metastatic fibrosarcoma, a pilot study. Phytic acid and minerals: Antitumor effect of inositol hexaphosphate IP 6 in vitro.

Ivana Vucenik, AbulKalam M. A striking anticancer action of IP 6 was demonstrated in different experimental models. Interactive suppression of aberrant crypt foci induced by azoxymethane in rat colon by phytic acid and green tea.

Inositol hexaphosphate inhibits growth, and ijositol G1 arrest and apoptotic death of prostate carcinoma DU The mechanisms involved in the anticancer activity of inositol compounds are not fully understood. Therefore, the strategy of chemoprevention is to use agents that will inhibit mutagenesis, induce apoptosis, induce maturation and differentiation, and inhibit proliferation A high oat-bran intakes does not impair zinc absorption in human when added to a low-fiber animal protein-based diet.

Protection against cancer by dietary IP6 and inositol.

An antagonist of fibroblast growth factor receptor binding and activity. A novel anticancer function of inositol hexaphosphate IP 6 ; 4 also Ins P 6 and phytic acid has been shown both in vivo and in vitro 3 — 5. Measurement of intracellular inositol phosphates after IP 6 treatment showed an increased level of lower-phosphate inositol phosphates IP 2124 — 26 ; their involvement in signal transduction pathways can affect cell cycle regulation, growth, and differentiation of malignant cells 3 — 5.

Exogenously administered IP 6 is rapidly taken inosihol the cells and dephosphorylated to lower-phosphate inositol phosphates, which further interfere with signal transduction pathways and cell cycle arrest.


In this review we show the efficacy and discuss some of the molecular mechanisms that govern the action of this dietary inoeitol. We tested the effect of IP 6 on tumorigenicity and tumor regression in this model. Many tumors produce large amounts of vascular endothelial growth factor, a cytokine that signals normal blood vessels to grow.

Cancer inhibition by inositol hexaphosphate (IP6) and inositol: from laboratory to clinic.

Only myo -inositol hexaphosphate has been found in plants; jp6 – chiro – and scyllo -inositol hexaphosphates have been isolated from soil 7. Email alerts New issue alert.

Value of IP 6 as a therapeutic and preventive agent for cancer. Effects of inositol hexaphosphate IP 6 on human normal and leukaemic hematopoietic cells. Comparison of pure inositol hexaphosphate IP 6 and high-bran diet in the prevention of DMBA-induced rat mammary carcinogenesis.

IP 6 not only inhibits the activities of some liver enzymes 7576 but also significantly increases the hepatic levels of glutathione S -transferase 44 op6, 77both of which indicate its possible role in carcinogen-blocking activities and cancer protection.

Pi6 activity seems to be closely related to its unique structure. Current cancer treatment recognizes the importance of using combination therapy to increase efficacy and decrease side effects of conventional chemotherapy.
