Mistletoe Therapy

Mistletoe treatment is an essential part of integrative cancer care. It is mostly used to improve quality of life, increase the tolerability of chemotherapy, and exert a possible benefit on tumor control and survival. Mistletoe extracts contain a variety of biologically active compounds such as lectins, viscotoxins, oligo- and polysaccharides, and triterpene acids. They are cytotoxic, have strong apoptosis-inducing effects, enhance the cytotoxicity of anticancer drugs, stimulate the immune system, possess DNA-stabilizing properties in mononuclear cells, and enhance endorphins in vivo.
