Background: Melanoma cancer is one of the most common types of skin cancer. In this cancer, skin cells grow uncontrollably and divide rapidly. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of nettle extract consumption and aerobic exercise on IL-8 and Tumor volume gene expression in mice with melanoma.
Methodology: In this experimental study, 20 adult male rats with weighing 300 to 350 g were randomly divided into 4 groups, including groups of: control, exercise, extract and exercise + extract. The training program consisted of 30 minutes of running on a treadmill without a slope at a speed of 16 meters per minute for the first week, and one meter per minute was added every week until it reached 22 meters per minute in the eighth week. One week after induction of melanoma cancer and through implantation of the tumor under the skin,  the experimental group consumed 30 mg / kg / day of nettle ethanol extract orally for 8 weeks. RT PCR was used to measure the expression of IL-8gene.
Results: The results of the present study showed that consumption of nettle extract and aerobic exercise significantly reduced the expression of interleukin 8 in the experimental groups compared with the control group (p = 0.125, p = 0.278, = 0.174, respectively. p). The results also showed that tumor volume was significantly reduced among the experimental groups compared to the control group (p = 0.021, p = 0.136, p = 0.047, respectively).
Conclusion: The data of the present study show that regular activity and consumption of nettle extract can play a therapeutic role in melanoma cancer by reducing the expression of interleukin 8 and tumor volume.
