Inhibition of hepatocarcinogenic responses to 1,2-dimethylhydrazine by diallyl
sulfide, a component of garlic oil.
In a study from New Zealand, scientists fed rats with varying doses of diallyl
disulphide, a chemical found in garlic.
Studies performed at Anderson Hospital in Houston found that mice developed 75% fewer tumors when given diallyl
sulfide, a component of garlic, prior to exposure to a colon-specific carcinogen.
Synthetic polymers for coagulant applications have two predominant chemistries: poly DADMAC and EPIXDMA (dimethyl diallyl
diammoniumchloride and epichlorohydrin/dimethyl amine, respectively).
Sundaram described how diallyl
disulfide (DADS), an oil-soluble, sulfur compound present in processed garlic, depressed the growth of the human cancer cells or killed them.
To eliminate field problems with broken and cracked high voltage connectors, the brittle diallyl
orthophthalate material has been replaced by a glass-reinforced polythermide resin.
However, if you were to take that same amount of garlic and administer one of its compounds, such as diallyl
sulfide, in pure form in a gelatin capsule, you'd have a drug, not a food.
Upon analyzing this oil, pioneering French and' German investigators successfully identified the family of sulphur-containing compounds that include diallyl
sulphides, which remain the focal point for present-day researchers like Xiaonan Lu of the University of British Columbia.
The active constituents of GC are Sulfur-containing compounds that in this plant called Diallyl
Disulfide (Allicin) and glucosinolates (GLS) that are Cancer prevention materials (Mazloom et al., 2013).
Lee and colleagues studied the efficacy of diallyl
disulfide (DADS), a secondary component derived from garlic, in amelioration of C[Cl.sub.4]-induced acute liver injury.
Daily oral administration of garlic extract (50% and 100%), diallyl
sulphides (5% and 10%), and diallyl
disulphide (0.5% and 1%) and its diallyl
sulphides in experimental rats was shown to protect mice against MRSA systemic infection .
Organosulfur compounds (OSCs) are the major active components in garlic, including the oil-soluble compounds, such as diallyl
sulfide (DAS), diallyl
disulfide (DADS), diallyl
trisulfide (DATS), and water-soluble fractions containing S-allylcysteine (SAC) and S-allylmercaptocysteine (SAMC) .
