The study, conducted in an experimental mouse model, revealed that emu oil could reduce clinical symptoms of ulcerative colitis and reduced the numbers of tumours that developed as a result of the disease. The findings have been published in peer reviewed journals and provided the rigorous scientific evidence required to enable clinical trials, which will assess the potential therapeutic benefit of emu oil in ulcerative colitis patients.
