Philanthropy transforms research to improve outcomes for those treated for cancer.

 

An anonymous gift by a donor advances research, including clinical trials of muscadine grape’s cancer-fighting properties on breast and prostate cancer. This gift has been transformational in its potential impact for those being treated for cancer. The muscadine extract, native to the southeastern United States, is considered anti-inflammatory. Recent studies have also looked at its potential impact on exercise and aging.

In spite of how it sounds, this isn't a riddle. It’s research examining a specific muscadine grape extract and its potential effects on cancer, in particular breast and prostate cancers.
