Among men, prostate cancer is the second most frequently diagnosed cancer globally.
The findings showed that sulforaphane — a dietary compound from broccoli that’s known to help prevent prostate cancer — may work through its influence on long, non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) while offering a new way to specifically prevent or slow the progression of malignant cells.One type of lncRNA — called LINC01116 — is upregulated in a human cell line of prostate cancer, but can be decreased by treatment with sulforaphane, the researchers said.

“The study showed that treatment with sulforaphane could normalise the levels of this lncRNA,” said Laura Beaver, Research Associate at Oregon State University in the US.
