Discovering a new generation of safe anticancer therapies based on mixtures of plant products

New Earth BioMed is a nonprofit research organization that seeks to discover synergistic mixtures of safe natural compounds useful in treating cancer. In fact, some natural compounds that are of interest to us are found in vegetables, fruits, spices, and medicinal herbs. Our research team is developing advanced laser analytical technologies, complex cell culture systems, and sophisticated mathematical models to help predict the cancer fighting effects of natural compound mixtures. Our goal is to discover the specific compounds, mixtures, and doses that produce the greatest inhibition of cancer at the highest level of safety.

The many articles posted here explain why past and current approaches to discovery have left us still wanting for optimally safe and effective anticancer drugs. Furthermore, we describe emerging approaches that could lead to a new generation of safer and more effective drugs. For quick summaries, please read the Executive Overview and Letter From the President. For a more in-depth discussion, please see our research Roadmap.

If, after learning about our research program, you see the potential of using natural product mixtures to safely treat cancer, please consider helping to support our work. Your financial support is vital in allowing us to continue our efforts to unravel the biological effects of nontoxic mixtures of plant compounds. We invite you to participate with us, and we deeply appreciate your support.

We also invite you to join our mailing lists to stay informed about the latest articles and developments as they arise. You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates on our work. For additional information on how you can help, please see the Volunteers page.
