The researchers noted that the substances can be effective on cancers other than skin cancer such as lung cancer. They found that the substances can aid in the prevention of skin cancer and other epithelial cancers in humans, specifically those that have smoked or sunbathed.

The team continues to look for the best combinations of the natural agents in suppressing different events during skin cancer development. They are going to use an UVB light model of skin cancer initiation and confirm their results. The ongoing work is supported by two grants from the National Institutes of Health.
