Pau D'Arco and Taxol

In a recent lab animal study at Dana Farber, researcher Chiang J. Li, M.D. discovered that ovarian cancer cells were completely destroyed when a substance called b-lapachone was administered concurrently with taxol, or when b-lapachone was administered within 24 hours of taxol. The lab tests followed in vitro testing with a wide variety of human cancer cells, in which all of the cells were killed by administering the two substances in the same way.

B-lapachone is a derivative of the South American Pau D'Arco tree. Pau D'Arco is sold as an herbal remedy in the United States.
