MSM: A Potential Breakthrough in Liver Cancer Treatment


Liver cancer remains a significant global health challenge, ranking as the third leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. Despite advancements in medical science, effective treatments for liver cancer remain limited. However, recent research suggests that methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), an organic sulfur-containing compound, may offer a promising avenue for liver cancer treatment.

The Global Liver Cancer Challenge

Liver cancer, primarily hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), poses a major health threat globally, with hundreds of thousands of new cases diagnosed each year. This malignancy is closely associated with risk factors such as hepatitis B and C infections, excessive alcohol consumption, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Despite medical advancements, liver cancer continues to be a challenging disease to treat effectively.

MSM: A Natural Compound with Anti-Cancer Properties

Methylsulfonylmethane, or MSM, is a naturally occurring compound found in various foods and sources. It is structurally related to dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and dimethyl sulfone (DMSO2), and it has gained attention for its potential health benefits, including anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.

Unveiling the Potential of MSM in Liver Cancer

In recent years, researchers have turned their attention to the possible role of MSM in cancer therapy. A study led by Joo-Hyun Kim and colleagues explored the effects of MSM on liver cancer cells and transgenic mice, shedding light on its potential as an anti-cancer agent.

Study Findings

The study conducted by Kim et al. involved several key experiments:

1. Inhibition of Liver Cancer Cell Growth:

The researchers tested the impact of MSM on liver cancer cell lines, including HepG2, Huh7-Mock, and Huh7-H-rasG12V. They found that MSM significantly reduced the growth of these cells in a dose-dependent manner. This inhibition of cell growth was particularly notable when treated with 500 mmol/L of MSM.

2. Promotion of Apoptosis:

Apoptosis, a programmed cell death process, is often dysregulated in cancer cells. The researchers discovered that treatment with MSM led to a substantial increase in apoptosis in liver cancer cells. Specifically, cleaved caspase-8, cleaved caspase-3, and cleaved PARP (Poly ADP-ribose polymerase) levels were significantly elevated in cells treated with 500 mmol/L of MSM. This indicates that MSM can induce apoptosis in liver cancer cells, potentially inhibiting their growth.

3. Suppression of Tumour Development in Mice:

To assess the in vivo effects of MSM, the researchers administered MSM to H-ras12V transgenic mice for three months. These mice are prone to liver tumour development. The results were remarkable; the mice treated with MSM exhibited significantly reduced tumour size and fewer tumours compared to the control group. Moreover, cleaved PARP was significantly increased in non-tumour areas of the liver in mice treated with MSM, suggesting that MSM might not only suppress tumour growth but also contribute to the protection of non-tumour liver tissue.

4. Improvement in Liver Function:

Liver injury was significantly attenuated in mice treated with MSM. Blood plasma analysis showed reduced levels of aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT), indicating improved liver function.

The study's findings strongly suggest that MSM has anti-cancer effects in liver cancer, primarily through the activation of apoptosis. This natural compound, commonly found in various foods and known to be safe even at higher concentrations, presents an exciting potential for liver cancer treatment.

No pain

I'm a beauty therapist/ nail tech and my hands were aching alot in my thumb and wrist joints from work, been using Mismo msm for a couple of months now and can truly say the pain has gone.

It works

I started getting arthritis pain in one of my fingers about 6 months ago and a friend told me to try MISMO. So I ordered a tub and after a couple of weeks I noticed that the ache had gone. I now take it daily and have no pain unless I forget.
It tastes nasty but it really does work wonders.

New to Mismo

I am often sceptical of products that claim to fix all ills but I have been pleasantly surprised to find the Mismo product bundle to be very good so far!
