Herbal Coltsfoot(Tussilago farfara) Improves the Bone Marrow Cells Against the Risk of Leukemia

By Kyle J. Norton

Leukemia is a condition characterized by an abnormal increase of white blood cells produced by the bone marrow and/or the lymphatic system. Depending to the malignant granulocytes or lymphocytes, leukemia is classified into myelogenous or lymphoblastic leukemia.

Bone marrow is soft tissue inside the hollow center of the major bone. including spine, pelvis, underarm, leg. etc.

Acute leukemia is a condition caused by a rapid increase in the numbers of extreme immature white blood cells which appear in the bloodstream in the other parts of the body, including tissue and organs, Acute leukemia can also be classified into
* Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL)
Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) is a type of cancer of the abnormal growth of extreme immature lymphocytes overproduced by the bone marrow and/or lymphatic system. The condition has a tendency to multiply quickly, leading to the death to normal white blood cells in the bone marrow and/or lymphatic system.

In ALL, lymphocytes appear immature in the bloodstream. Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common children forms of leukemia with about 80% of all cases.

* Acute myeloid leukemia (AML)
Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) is a cancer of myelogenous lining caused by the rapid growth of abnormal granulocytes accumulated in the bone marrow, interfering with the normal blood cells. In AML, granulocytes appear immature in the bloodstream.

According to the statistic proved by the American Cancer Society, in 2019, approximately 21,450 new cases of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) will be diagnosed in adults. The disease also causes the
of 10,920 deaths of American adults.

Coltsfoot(Tussilago farfara) is a perennial herbaceous plant, genus Tussilago, belonging to the family Asteraceae, native to Europe and Asia. The herb has been used over thousands of year to treat asthma, various coughs, bronchial congestion, respiratory disorders, headaches and obstruction in the nasal passage, etc.

On finding a potential compound for the treatment of bone marrow cells integrity, researchers examined the protective effect of polysaccharides from Tussilago farfara L. on bone marrow cells.

According to the tested analysis, Tussilago farfara L. protected the bone marrow cells against the side effects of polychemotherapy-induced apoptosis.


Furthermore, polychemotherapy-induced DNA damage in bone marrow cells was also reversed by the application of polysaccharides from Tussilago farfara L.

In vivo, small intestinal epithelium of C57Bl/6 mice, polysaccharides from Tussilago farfara L.also induced genoprotective properties against the chemo side effects.

Taken altogether, coltsfoot may be considered a remedy for the protection of bone marrow cells integrity against the onset of leukemia, pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.
