Spirulina?

Hi

I came across these two studies which looked promising:
Prevention of experimental oral cancer by extracts of Spirulina-Dunaliella algae.
- a Harvard School of Dental Medicine study
Evaluation of chemoprevention of oral cancer with Spirulina fusiformis
the first human study evaluating the chemopreventive potential of SF

Suprisingly, I couldn't find any further human studies to follow up on these significant findings! Research is continuing according to my PubMed search! For those interested, the following links give further information about Spirulina:
Spirulina research shows treatment of breast cancer tumors, HIV virus, and other viruses
Intelihealth: Spirulina
Moss reports on Spirulina
Spirulina: Health Discoveries From The Source Of Life

There have been misleading claims made according to Quackwatch.

CancerSource offers current information on complementary therapies with a non-biased, evidence-based approach. They provide evidence regarding the effectiveness and safety of many therapies that may be integrated with traditional cancer treatments:Spirulina

Any comments?

Best wishes
