Inrepparttar 149847 study mice were induced with breast cancer thenrepparttar 149848 tumors were removed such as with a mastectomy in humans. Thenrepparttar 149849 mice were divided into 4 groups. One was a placebo group, one received Curcumin, one received Taxol, andrepparttar 149850 other Curcumin and Taxol.
