Chinese medicine study seeks female participants

A Victoria University researcher is seeking women between the ages of 40 to 55 to participate in a study looking at the benefits of kiwi fruit seaweed extract to prevent the incidence of breast cancer and regulate reproductive hormones.

The extract is a commonly used food therapy in Chinese medicine.

Participants will be required to consume the extract as a powder twice a day for a two-month period. They will also need to attend a clinic on Milleara Rd in East Keilor every fortnight to provide urine samples.

During the trial, participants will be given a breast thermography test - an advanced diagnostic tool that can detect cellular changes in breasts years ahead of any other screening method - as well as general health assessments.


If you are interested in participating contact:

Dr Lulu Fu on (03) 9919 2769 or (03) 9331 3921 or Mobile: 0418 129 268
