Curcumin is a commonly-used spice and food coloring. Evidence suggests that curcumin can suppress tumor initiation, promotion and metastasis in a variety of tumor cell lines. The current available curcumin has low bioavailability restricting the effect of curcumin in non-colon cancer. In this study we plan to test a new liquid tumeric/curcumin extract, Curcumol (patent pending, Israel Patent Application No. 181,121). We predict the bioavailability of the liquid tumeric/curcumin extract will be better compared to the currently used curcumin powder.
Twelve healthy participants enrolled to the study. All volunteers will have pre study evaluation to confirm healthy state. After enrollment, each participant will be tested twice, one with the liquid tumeric/curcumin (study drug) and once with the curcumin powder (control). The days of testing will be on two days, separated by two weeks wash-out period. The participants will be assigned to randomly receive study drug or control on the 1st day, with the other regimen administered at the 2nd day. Both study drug and control will be diluted in 150ml of water. The doe of study drug will be escalated from 30 drops (4 participants), 50 drops (4 participants) and 70 drops (4 participants). Blood sample will be collected at 0,0.25,0.5,0.75,1,2,3,4,5,6,8h post drug. Quantization of curcumin plasma levels will be done by the high pressure liquid chormatography method. A biomarker for the potential effect of curcumin, platelet function pre and post curcumin consumption will be tested.

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.
