Ask the Lab Scientist Question:
Are there any recent studies regarding Quercetin and leukemia? I have been reading a lot about it. I am wondering if you knew of anything being said about Q and apoptosis of leukemia cells?
Answer: There are no clinical studies demonstrating efficacy of quercetin as a treatment for CLL or other leukemias. It has been studied in vitro (in the lab) where many therapies have looked promising but later proven to be of no benefit.
