T. Colin Campbell

Project Description:

Dr. Campbell�s hypothesis was that chronic infection with the Hepatitis B virus coupled with nutritional factors, especially those associated with an increase in plasma cholesterol, stimulates liver cell proliferation and results in liver cancer. He tested whether dietary protein, specifically casein that is a strong modulator of cholesterol, will modify the development of tumor formation in the liver.
