Soon Hing Cheong is collaborating with Monash University Malaysia to elucidate potential
bioactivity of porcupine dates. Preliminary results using the in vitro cell-based assay
suggested that porcupine dates might have potential inhibitory effect on several cancer cell
types and anti-inflammatory activities. The in vivo therapeutic effects of porcupine dates are
to be validated using animal model.
