The article presents a scientific review of rice bran arabinoxylan compound (RBAC), a health-promoting product with profound immunological effects. The study reviews animal and human research work which suggests that RBAC reduces the toxicity of certain chemotherapeutic agents. Studies also show that RBAC sensitizes cancer cells making them more receptive to the therapeutic effect of the agents. The article reveals that RBAC also protects normal healthy cells against the potentially damaging and toxic effects of chemotherapy.
