Clinical Study to Test Modified Citrus Pectin in Prostate Cancer: Phase III Trial Now Recruiting Patients

Clinical Study to Test Modified Citrus Pectin in Prostate Cancer: Phase III Trial Now Recruiting Patients   A phase III clinical trial is now recruiting participants to study the effects of PectaSol-C® modified citrus pectin (MCP) in controlling prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels in prostate cancer patients. The study, conducted at the Meir Medical Center

Breakthrough Study: Modified Citrus Pectin Boosts Chemo’s Power against Ovarian Cancer

New Breakthrough Study: Modified Citrus Pectin Boosts Chemo’s Power against Ovarian Cancer Ovarian cancer is one of the deadliest cancers because it’s often detected at a late stage, with higher risk of resistance to frontline chemotherapy drugs such as paclitaxel (commonly sold as Taxol). However, a new preclinical study from the University of Tehran and the Neuroscience Research Center, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran, published in the Asian Pacific Journal of Cancer Prevention showed that Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) increased the effectiveness of paclitaxel against ovarian cancer cells.

Modified Citrus Pectin Protects Against Vascular Hardening

The research on Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) continues to grow, highlighting its powerful benefits against inflammation and the protein galectin-3 -- a culprit in heart disease, cancer, inflammation and fibrosis. In this powerful new study, published in Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology: Journal of the American Heart Association, MCP blocked galectin-3 and reduced the inflammation, blood pressure, fibrosis and aortic wall thickness associated with vascular hardening and cardiovascular disease. Furthermore, MCP out-performed the pharmaceutical drug sprironolactone, safely without toxicity. Click here to read more about the study.

Mind as Medicine: Retreat Brings Healing, Growth

More than 100 people attended a recent meditation retreat in Tel Aviv, Israel: Physicians, journalists, holistic practitioners, cancer patients and meditation enthusiasts. They came to learn holistic, mind-body approaches to healing and find avenues to spiritual growth. The retreat was led by integrative medicine pioneer and meditation expert Isaac Eliaz, M.D., L.Ac. and was coordinated by Taatsumot, a non-profit organization. The in-depth, two-day retreat program focused on the mind's innate healing power.

American Chemical Society Highlights Modified Citrus Pectin as Solution to Chronic Disease Marker Galectin-3

Cancer, heart disease, chronic inflammation—these disease conditions plague humanity, causing early death and untold suffering. Slowly, scientists are uncovering their numerous causes including genetic anomalies, environmental toxins, obesity and other factors. However, a rapidly expanding body of research points to a single biological culprit that profoundly affects these and other conditions—the molecule Galectin-3.

Modified Citrus Pectin Boosts Effectiveness of Doxorubicin Against Prostate Cancer

Doxorubicin (Dox) is an effective anti-cancer drug, but it's also a very toxic one, causing severe heart and immune damage. The doses needed to impact tumors are not well tolerated by patients; however, researchers may have found an answer through combination therapy. A study published in the journal Cell Biology International has shown that combining Dox with the natural supplement Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) increases the anti-cancer activity of Dox. This finding bodes well for prostate cancer patients, especially those too weak for normal chemotherapy regimens. Combination therapy may allow for lower doses of Dox with enhanced clinical impact and reduced toxicity.

Scientists Warn of Increased Nuclear Radiation Risks

Integrative physician Isaac Eliaz, M.D., L.Ac., is a leading researcher and expert on safe detoxification and protection from radioactive isotopes and heavy metals. Here, Dr. Eliaz outlines a strategic plan for combating potential radiation exposure, using natural detoxifiers, trace minerals, antioxidants, and immune boosters. "This approach will help to remove potential radiation from the body, protect cells, tissues and DNA, and strengthen vitality and immunity. The beauty of this strategy is that while these solutions help remove radiation, they also enhance overall health with numerous additional benefits," says Dr. Eliaz.
