This research paper just published this year, 2016, gave a concise five page summary of papaya and its effect on disease. Dr Dang’s original research at the University of Florida was referenced related to papaya leaf and its effect on cancer.
“Plants products or constituent of the plants shows therapeutics role in the cancer prevention and treatment . In this regards, papaya and their valuable constituents have a significant role in the cancer management. An important study examined the effect of aqueous- extracted C. papaya leaf fraction on the growth of various tumor cell lines and on the anti-tumor effect of human lymphocytes and results showed that growth inhibitory activity of the CP extract on tumor cell lines derived from cervical carcinoma (Hela), breast adenocarcinoma (MCF-7), hepatocellular carcinoma (HepG2), lung adenocarcinoma (PC14), pancreatic epithelioid carcinoma (Panc-1), and mesothelioma (H2452) in a dose-dependent manner. In addition, CP extract inhibited the proliferative responses of haematopoietic cell lines, including T-cell lymphoma (Jurkat), plasma cell leukemia (ARH77), Burkitt’s lymphoma a (Raji), and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (Karpas-299) .”
