Remember that with age, NK cell activity become less activated and thus, less powerful to kill cancer cells. One other factor associated with prostate cancer that I mentioned above is the role that oxidative stress plays. This association with prostate cancer has already been recognized for over 2 decades. Several clinical studies have proven the role of oxidative stress and chronic inflammation in the development and progression of the disease (5). In fact, we know that the aging process in humans includes a dramatic decrease in the production of endogenous antioxidants in most tissues, including the brain. This results in the increased production of free radicals having damaging effects on cellular components and tissues. The observation through the Oxidative Dried Blood Layer test that I have used over the past 40 years, informs us about the stage of the oxidative stress and inflammation, which correlates with the progression of the disease. In fact, recent studies have indicated that oxidative stress is higher in the epithelium of prostate cancer than men without the disease. Therefore this indicates increasing free radicals activity from antioxidant deficiency.

Chemotherapy itself may also increase oxidative stress-inducing chronic inflammation that in turn stimulates the progression of the disease. Again at this level, I am checking the patient inflammatory condition before and after chemotherapy and at different intervals. This is one way to follow and prescribe if necessary some selected antioxidant compounds to reduce inflammation. Observation via Live Blood Analysis is also important in order to screen the real blood condition according to the nutritional and dietary lifestyle of the patient. The oxidative stress level and other important factors are associated with the disease and the damaging effect of chemotherapy.

Another main factor linked with cancer and prostate cancer is the dysfunction of the mitochondria through Mt-DNA mutations, very frequent in most cancer, and altered metabolism that contributes to tumor pathogenesis and metastasis (6).
