These studies were applied on patients who have breast and bowel cancer and who did not complain of anorexia or bowel problems compared to patients who did not receive the same treatment. Future research is expected in order to gain additional information about the ability of bromelain to play a greater role in treating cance or improving survival chances as well as controlling the symptoms of the disease
