— A primary reason that head and neck cancer treatments fail is that
the tumor cells become resistant to chemotherapy drugs. Now researchers
at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center have found
that a compound derived from the Indian spice curcumin can help cells
overcome that resistance (Archives of Otolaryngology — Head and Neck Surgery, May 2011, Vol. 137:5, pp. 499-507).
