Highlights

Nutrition is the single most effective tool which cancer patients can control for managing cancers like Myeloproliferative Neoplasms or Urachal adenocarcinoma – hence it is important to identify those Foods and Supplements which are scientifically recommended for you. A frequently asked question is if foods like Aloe Vera are beneficial for cancer and along with which treatments? There is a mis-conception that all plant-based foods are good for all cancers and all of them are equal in terms of their benefits or their lack of. The reality is that some plant-based foods will be better than others for a specific type of cancer, treatments and other conditions. So Aloe Vera benefits will vary and the answer is contextual.

For example, grapefruit with certain medications is not recommended. Also spinach with some blood thinning medications can cause adverse interactions and hence intake should be reduced. For cancer, nutrition which includes food and supplements are important decisions which need to be made.

So are there types of cancer where Aloe Vera has more benefits? Yes! Aloe Vera is beneficial for Urachal adenocarcinoma patients taking Cisplatin treatment. But has adverse interactions for Myeloproliferative Neoplasms patients on Daunorubicin treatment.

For Urachal adenocarcinoma along with Cisplatin – biochemical pathways like Apoptosis (Intrinsic Apoptosis), P53 Signaling, WNT Betacatenin Signaling, RUNX Signaling (RUNX3 Signaling) and MYC Signaling are potential drivers of the disease. Aloe Vera has active ingredients which can manipulate these biochemical pathways to reduce the disease drivers and hence are scientifically beneficial. But for Myeloproliferative Neoplasms along with Daunorubicin – biochemical pathways like Angiogenesis, NFKB Signaling, DNA Repair (Homology Directed Repair), DNA Repair (Non-homologous end-joining) and Hypoxia (Hypoxia Response) are potential drivers of the disease. Aloe Vera has active ingredients which can increase disease drivers like Angiogenesis, NFKB Signaling, DNA Repair (Homology Directed Repair), DNA Repair (Non-homologous end-joining) and Hypoxia (Hypoxia Response) and hence intake should be reduced.

Similarly, eating Aloe Vera can have scientific benefits for healthy individuals who have a gene mutation in SMAD4 which suggests potential risk of cancer. This is because of biochemical pathways MYC Signaling, Angiogenesis, Stem Cell Signaling, MAPK Signaling and Growth Factor Signaling (EGFR Signaling). But reduce intake of Aloe Vera when at genetic risk of cancer due to mutation of gene PALB2 due to its manipulation of biochemical pathways Angiogenesis, DNA Repair (Homology Directed Repair), Stem Cell Signaling, Estrogen Signaling and Growth Factor Signaling (ERBB2 Signaling) causing cancer drivers to increase.

The takeaway being – for Myeloproliferative Neoplasms, Urachal adenocarcinoma and other cancers individual conditions can influence if foods like Aloe Vera are recommended or not. As conditions like ongoing treatments, supplements, habits and other conditions change; the nutrition plan must be re-designed and personalized. Whether Myeloproliferative Neoplasms or Urachal adenocarcinoma or other cancer types -, current treatments and supplements, age, gender, weight, height, lifestyle and genetic conditions are also key decision factors for creating a personalized nutrition plan.



Why is the choice of foods important for cancer?

Foods like Aloe Vera typically contain more than one active ingredient at varying concentrations. Each of these active ingredients like Acemannan has a unique molecular biological mechanism of action. Cancer like most diseases is driven by specific biochemical pathways and molecular interventions of the pathway can be beneficial or create adverse interactions. Hence for Myeloproliferative Neoplasms, Urachal adenocarcinoma and other cancers there is a need to personalize which foods and supplements to take and regularly evaluate if foods like Aloe Vera are recommended or not.

Aloe Vera for Urachal adenocarcinoma taking Cisplatin Aloe Vera for Myeloproliferative Neoplasms with Daunorubicin treatment

So some of the example questions one may have related to Aloe Vera can be: Is Aloe Vera beneficial for me? Should I eat it when at genetic cancer risk due to mutation of gene PALB2? Should I eat Aloe Vera when a mutation of a gene SMAD4 is identified? Should I eat Aloe Vera when diagnosed with Myeloproliferative Neoplasms? Should I eat Aloe Vera when diagnosed with Urachal adenocarcinoma? Should I eat Aloe Vera when on Daunorubicin treatment? Should I continue eating Aloe Vera if my treatment changes from Daunorubicin to Cisplatin? Are the implications of taking Aloe Vera in Urachal adenocarcinoma the same as Myeloproliferative Neoplasms? And so on.

Aloe Vera and cancer

Aloe vera is a medicinal plant that’s been used to treat various health conditions for thousands of years. Aloe vera is a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins.The succulent has a long history of being used for medicinal purposes.Aloe vera gel is widely known to relieve sunburn and help heal wounds

Aloe Vera contains many active ingredients like Acemannan, Lupeol, Barbaloin, Chrysophanol and many other Bioactives at different concentrations. The molecular pathways which are regulated by Aloe Vera include Angiogenesis, NFKB Signaling, Apoptosis (Intrinsic Apoptosis), P53 Signaling, MYC Signaling and many others. These cellular pathways directly or indirectly influence cancer molecular endpoints like growth, spread and death. Because of this biological relationship – for cancer, choosing foods like Aloe Vera and supplements is an important decision to be made. And not necessarily the same food choices are scientifically best for all individuals.

Include Aloe Vera in my nutrition?

The answer to the question “Which Foods to Eat” and “Which Foods to Reduce Intake of” is dependent on multiple factors. Just like the same treatment does not work for every cancer patient, based on individual context the Aloe Vera may have scientific benefits or have adverse interactions. Along with which cancer – the ongoing treatments, supplements, lifestyle habits, height, weight, allergies and food preferences are all factors influencing answers to the question.

1. Any benefits of Aloe Vera for Myeloproliferative Neoplasms with Daunorubicin treatment?

Myeloproliferative Neoplasms is known to have mutations in gene like JAK2, CALR and TET2 and others which together cause biochemical pathway changes in Angiogenesis, NFKB Signaling, DNA Repair (Homology Directed Repair), DNA Repair (Non-homologous end-joining) and Hypoxia (Hypoxia Response). A cancer treatment like Daunorubicin has molecular action on a unique set of biochemical pathways . The treatment intent is to have a good overlap with the cancer driving pathways and reduce the disease drivers. In such conditions foods which can scientifically cancel out the treatment effect by reducing the overlap between the cancer driving pathways and treatment are candidates for reducing intake of or completely avoid. For example – in the case of Myeloproliferative Neoplasms and treatment Daunorubicin – Aloe Vera is not recommended. Aloe Vera impacts pathways or processes like Angiogenesis and NFKB Signaling which can negate the effects of the treatment.

2. Any benefits of Aloe Vera for Urachal adenocarcinoma with Cisplatin treatment?

Urachal adenocarcinoma is defined and driven by specific genetic mutations like TP53, MTOR and APC leading to biochemical pathway changes in Apoptosis (Intrinsic Apoptosis), P53 Signaling, WNT Betacatenin Signaling, RUNX Signaling (RUNX3 Signaling) and MYC Signaling. Also treatments like Cisplatin have molecular action on a unique set of biochemical pathways. Aloe Vera should be considered for Urachal adenocarcinoma while on Cisplatin treatment. Aloe Vera impacts pathways or processes like Apoptosis (Intrinsic Apoptosis) and P53 Signaling which can either reduce drivers of Urachal adenocarcinoma and/or improve Cisplatin treatment effect.

Foods to Eat After Cancer Diagnosis!

No two cancers are the same. Go beyond the common nutrition guidelines for everyone and make personalized decisions about food and supplements with confidence.

3. Any benefits of Aloe Vera for gene PALB2 associated cancer genetic risk?

Many companies offer gene panel tests for evaluating genetic risk to different cancers. These panels cover genes like PALB2 and many others associated with high prevalence cancers of breast, ovary, uterus, prostate and gastrointestinal system and others. The intent of the genetic testing of PALB2 is for diagnosis and/or to find out any potential risk factors for cancer. PALB2 mutation causes biochemical pathways or processes like Angiogenesis, DNA Repair (Homology Directed Repair), Stem Cell Signaling, Estrogen Signaling and Growth Factor Signaling (ERBB2 Signaling) to get impacted. Cancer molecular endpoints like apoptosis, proliferation and spread are impacted by pathways like Angiogenesis, DNA Repair (Homology Directed Repair), Stem Cell Signaling, Estrogen Signaling and Growth Factor Signaling (ERBB2 Signaling). Intake of foods like Aloe Vera should be reduced when there is a mutation of PALB2 for risk of Breast cancer. Aloe Vera impacts pathways or processes like Angiogenesis and creates adverse effects with PALB2 mutation.

4. Any benefits of Aloe Vera for gene SMAD4 associated cancer genetic risk?

SMAD4 is also one of many genes available in panels for cancer risk testing. SMAD4 mutation causes biochemical pathways or processes like MYC Signaling, Angiogenesis, Stem Cell Signaling, MAPK Signaling and Growth Factor Signaling (EGFR Signaling) to get impacted. Cancer molecular endpoints like apoptosis, proliferation and spread are impacted by pathways like MYC Signaling, Angiogenesis, Stem Cell Signaling, MAPK Signaling and Growth Factor Signaling (EGFR Signaling). Intake of foods like Aloe Vera should be considered when Colon cancer and Gallbladder Cancer risk is identified due to gene SMAD4 mutation. Aloe Vera impacts biochemical pathways or processes like MYC Signaling and Angiogenesis associated with genetic risk to SMAD4 mutation.
