Speaker: Jonathan Treasure. Platinum-based chemotherapy agents remain a standard of care in treating germ cell (ovarian/testicular) and several other malignancies despite their toxicity. Botanicals can enhance the outcomes of platinum drug use by preventing and/or treating both general and specific drug side effects, as well as synergistically enhancing the cytotoxic capabilities of the drug. This scenario is used to illustrate the methodological principles of managing beneficial herb-drug interactions based on rigorous preclinical research and phytopharmacological data.
