Neoplasene: the Future

Research is ongoing with Neoplasene, and the protocols and treatment methods are constantly changing. The effects of bloodroot’s active ingredients have not been researched aggressively, because most pharmaceutical companies will not spend money on something that they may not be able to patent, such as a plant. However, there is an astounding study on the effects of bloodroot on cancer from the medical school at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, done in 2000. This study was done in vitro with prostate cancer cells and skin cancer cells. The results were so clearly impressive the researchers remarked, “We suggest that sanguinarine could be developed as an anticancer drug.” The clinical case histories from veterinary hospitals throughout the U.S. are now accumulating, and are adding to the profound data of this very promising drug.

Dr. Yasson,
I have just started my Golden Ret. on Neoplasene. She was diagnosed with a Uretha cancer that is inoperable. My vet wanted to start her on it, we are very hopeful. She is 12 years old and has a very sensitive stomach. He also has her on perioxicam 5 mg. twice a day. He is hoping to get her off this. She seems to be getting an upset stomach. I am feeding with a meal. Any suggestions? I am giving orally 1 mg. one time a day.

I am using Neoplasene on my dog with metastisized cancer in her lung. I mix it in water and add it to her food, stir well, cover with Italian cheese and she eats it. I also give her Reglan 1/2 hour before feeding. Using Neoplasene twice daily and she has already stopped coughing.

Janet,

I'm sorry for the slow reply, I didn't get notified of your comment.

The amount of Neoplasene is based on the animal's weight, and the dosage can then be modified based on her tolerance. Sounds like your girl is particularly sensitive, and it's pointless to give a larger amount if she can't keep it down.

Try feeding her the neoplasene in a thick gravy, the kind that comes in a box - it may help her tolerate it better and avoid the need to reduce the dose.

I mix the Neoplasene with a tablespoon of filtered water, then add that to her food. With Jazzie, it is the Reglan that prevents the vomiting. Jazzie is a 134 pound Leonberger; she gets 1/2 of a CC twice daily. The Peroxicam is an NSAID which is not recommended with the Neoplasene since it block's the effectiveness. I'm not a vet but I have spoken with Dr. Fox a few times. Dr. Fox recommends cooked food--no kibble and no raw. I mix rice with a little cottage cheese, and rotate cooked chicken, beef, etc. He also recommends veggies but the only veggie Jazzie will eat is a potato!
To add to the amino acid base, I add a hard boiled egg, grated cheese--whatever I can think of. I'm now grinding up organic, preservative free hot dogs and using that to tempt her appetite--Leonbergers are terrible eaters.

Use at least a cup of food or more to dilute the Neoplasene which is a potent emetic.

My friend's best friend was diagnosed with squamous cell ca in the mouth. It has progressed to the back of her mouth & throat. Would the Neoplasene be effective for this? How can we get info on how to administer it? We are running out of time! Please be our angel!- Sandy
