Mistletoe therapy for stomach cancer

One study [87] investigated whether mistletoe therapy can improve quality of life of patients with stomach cancer under chemotherapy, and how it affects the immune system. 

It was shown that additional mistletoe therapy can significantly improve quality of life in these patients. It could be shown that a common side effect of chemotherapy with capecitabine, which is frequently used in this type of cancer – severe diarrhoea – was hardly present under the add-on mistletoe therapy. The number of cells relevant for immune defence also increased.

In the section "Scientific Information" we have presented the results of this study in detail.
