Researchers at the George Washington University Cancer Center are recruiting regular cigarette smokers to participate in a new clinical study to evaluate Avmacol ES®, a plant-based pill made from broccoli sprout and seed extracts (BSSE) to find out if Avmacol ES® can help protect cells from tobacco smoke damage and cancer-causing chemicals.
Individuals who smoke are at increased risk for developing lung, head and neck, and other cancers. BSSE contains natural substances that have been shown to protect against some airborne toxins and pollutants, including some that are found in cigarette smoke. We want to find out if BSSE will help with the break down and removal of toxic substances caused by tobacco use and possibly protect cells from tobacco smoke-induced damage in individuals who currently smoke.
This study has public funding from the National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
