Nicotinamide riboside shows promise as liver cancer preventive

Nicotinamide riboside shows promise as liver cancer preventiveNovember 21 2014. An article published online on November 20, 2014 in the journal Cancer Cell reveals a protective effect for nicotinamide riboside, a vitamin B3 derivative that increases cellular levels of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), against the risk of developing liver cancer in an animal model. NAD+, found in all living organisms, is necessary for the utilization of calories in cell metabolism.

Nabil Djouder and his associates at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) designed a mouse model of human hepatocellular cancer that reproduces the disease's stages from its initial lesions to metastasis. The mice were engineered to have liver cell-specific expression of an oncogene known as URI, which lowers cellular NAD+ and damages DNA, thereby initiating tumorigenesis.
