Research evidence has shown that POH can interfere with the replication of dividing cells such as seen in cancer. POH has shown antitumor activity against a range of cancer types including pancreatic, lung, colon, and liver cancers in laboratory and animal studies and an inhaled form of POH has shown preliminary evidence of safety and effectiveness in patients with recurrent gliomas.
