Treating Cancer Cases

So what have I learned about using this amazing new cancer drug, Neoplasene?

Well, there may be surviving cancer cells after the initial application of Neoplasene. This can happen when the medication does not come into contact with all of the mass due to its size or shape. A series of applications may be necessary and would be determined by the needs of each individual case.

There are three treatment options with Neoplasene – topical, injectible, and oral. Any combination of these forms may be used on a patient. And occasionally removal by surgery, or debulking, prior to beginning any Neoplasene treatment may be the optimal approach.

Topical treatment with the ointment form works well for exterior or surface cancers. The mass can be treated all at once, or in sections, depending on various factors. Topical application of the ointment will create a local effect and cause a slight burning sensation on cancerous tissue. Successfully treating with topical Neoplasene depends upon getting a sufficient amount of the drug in contact with the cancerous tissue long enough to trigger apoptosis. This may mean close monitoring, bandaging or using the dreaded E-collar to prevent licking and chewing by the patient. A small price to pay for the wonderful work of the drug.

The injectible form is called NeoplaseneX. It is administered directly into the tumor and can provide the concentration needed to eliminate a mass when it isn’t possible to remove it in other ways. Even though it is applied directly into a mass there is also a generalized effect. This means tumor tissue at distant sites anywhere in the body will also start to die. This reaction must be monitored well.

Giving Neoplasene orally, as a capsule or liquid also has a generalized effect, like the injectible. Cancer cells anywhere in the body will respond with apoptosis. Oral treatment can be used alone, but is usually used as long term continued care in conjunction with initial treatment by injection or topical. It requires a long term commitment by the family for its success. Oral Neoplasene is a somewhat bitter liquid that is usually well accepted when mixed with wet foods, esp. those with in a sauce or gravy. For the very finicky palate the liquid can be put into a capsule. This must be immediately prior to administration as it will start to dissolve the capsule within minutes.

When oral Neoplasene is given, care must be taken to avoid digestive upset. It is best given with a meal. This creates an immediate dilution in the stomach. Once diluted in the circulatory system, it is able to do its work without causing harm to healthy cells. The optimal dosage of the oral form is “to gastric tolerance.” This means that a moderate dosage is initiated and then the dose is increased slowly until the first sign of gastric upset occurs. The maintenance dose for long term aftercare is then set just below this amount for maximal effect with no side effects. The length of this treatment will vary from case to case.

In my next post I'll talk about what else can be expected during treatment.

The Wonder Drug

Yesterday I posted about why I'm more confident about cancer cases these days than ever before. It's because of an amazing new drug called Neoplasene.

Neoplasene does not burn tissue like whole bloodroot. Instead it causes cancer cells to die by a process known as apoptosis. This means that instead of cells being attacked and rupturing, they quietly and prematurely come to an immediate end of their life cycle and they die of “old age.” They enter into a self termination process and fold up like a tent, so to speak. The immune system of the patient handles them as they would other dead cells. There are chemotactic factors and inflammation and macrophages that act like the video game Pac Man critters eating up all the little bits.

It does all this while sparing healthy, normal cells! That means its effect is selective and exclusively against cancer cells. Research suggests that the distinction is made by way of a bonding affinity for the sugars unique to the cell membranes of cancer cells. This makes it extremely unique and valuable. It knows the difference between cancerous and healthy tissue. It sticks to the bad guys and leaves the good guys alone. Actually, given a high enough dosage over a long enough time, healthy cells would also succumb. However, by adjusting concentration and exposure time the neoplasm is destroyed while normal cells are spared. So, unlike most conventional “chemo” treatments, it’s not toxic at recommended doses.

Furthermore, with all of the information gathered so far, again unlike most conventional chemo treatments, Neoplasene works on any type of cancer! A dog or cat could have two different kinds of tumors or cancer simultaneously, not a rare situation, and the treatment would still be just as effective!

Treatment with Neoplasene must be performed by a veterinarian and has some nuances. In my next post I'll discuss some of the variables.

I Hope He Has Cancer

“I hope he has cancer.” I said that recently, in reference to little Dash, a two year old Persian. I really said it, and I really meant it. Of course when I caught myself in the thought it was quite the trip. Wow, cancer treatment is a whole new ballgame!

Dash was a small bundle of smoky grey affection. He seemed generally healthy but he had some problems show up in his lab work. Suddenly his choices of diagnosis were FIP (feline infectious peritonitis) or a malignancy. I had more confidence of treating the possible cancer than of treating the possible FIP. That realization was a real shocker for me. The reason for my confidence of choice was a relatively new medicine called Neoplasene®.

Neoplasene® is a relatively new drug approved for veterinary use. It is derived from the perennial herb bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis). It is so named because the sap of the root is a reddish color. It has historically been used as a dye, an emetic (induces vomiting) and a wart and tumor treatment, esp. by Native Americans. In cancer it has been used as an escharotic paste called Black Salve, which destroys much or all of the flesh it comes into contact with, whether it is healthy or not. This is indiscriminate necrosis. The revolutionary new drug Neoplasene is not whole bloodroot nor is it Black Salve, anymore than stainless steel is iron ore. It is, in part, an isolate of the active ingredients of bloodroot called benzylisoquinolone alkaloids, with the primary one being sanguinarine. This makes all the difference.

I'll be posting more about Neoplasene, and why I find it so amazing, in future posts.
