"cancer and milkweed"
 
   My husbands uncle had a skin cancer and used milkweed and it went away.
A year ago he was diagnosed with advanced stomach cancer,and told he had 6 months to live.
He found an outlet that sells milkweed as a pill and now a year later he is cancer free--and continues to take the milkweed.
God bless all here.

   A clinical trial with E.peplus latex in Brisbane
With the above background, Peplin Biotech began a study to determine the performance of crude sap against a variety of cancers, with an emphasis on skin cancers. Surprisingly, the sap was not only efficacious against a variety of skin cancer cell lines, including strains of malignant melanoma resistant to conventional chemotherapeutic agents, but also had powerful cell inhibitory activity against a wide range of other tumours tested, including breast cancer cells.

This promising in vitro data, coupled with the extensive community use for the topical treatment of skin cancer without any reported side effects, resulted in ethics approval being granted for a Phase I/II clinical trial of the crude sap on skin cancer patients at the Mater Hospital in Brisbane. The trial was restricted to patients who had failed or refused conventional therapy. The skin cancers

treated in the trial, therefore, tended to be at an advanced stage and some were on sites where healing after surgery or radiotherapy was a serious problem (e.g. the lower leg in older patients). Long-term complete remissions were confirmed by biopsy and were >80%.

   I've also seen these reports about Peplin, and read the PubMed abstracts and even ordered the articles.
I was lucky to find the weed in my own back yard and started straight away "burning" off the basal cell carcinomas. I have previously endured six "operations" to remove such ones, every time with disastrous aesthetic result and two of them have even recurred, in spite of transplants.
Not very surprising that I have to find other solutions.
The Euphorbia peplus sap can be dissolved in alcohol and I added some PEG 20000 also to make it viscous. Thus I can bring it with me on travel (which I do a lot in my job)in a small flask.

By the way- I was some three weeks ago in the south of France, close to the city of Perpignan, and much to my surprise I saw whole fields of Milkweed- as far as the eye could see millions of them- growing as weed under the vines on the vineyards. Amazing- I filled my suitcase with plants and now they grow in pots and free land in my garden.

Prior, I ordered seeds from a supplier- and some have germinated and are now growing. If someone needs such seeds- just drop me a mail and I shall mail you the address to them. It was around 100 for 25 g of seeds (which would be enough for many many m2) and thousands of plants.
PEP5 in the milkweed sap is said to activate a group of enzymes (protein kinase c), responsible for cell death and necrosis.
For this reason, I thought it logical to add the DCA, which would (if this is correct) switch on the mitochondria after which the PEP5 help the T-cells to recognise the cancer cells and destroy them. Is anyone out there skilled in cell metabolism? Can you comment on this idea.

It is now clear that the growth of the carcinomas are halted and receding after one week treatment. However, they seem to reappear after one week- so no I'm treating them again for a three week period.
It is rather painful and the skin looks pretty awful- but recovers surprisingly fast when treatment is halted.
I got it eye twice- and that I can assure you is no laughing matter- horrible pain for two hours.

I have also used "Curaderm"( containing extract from Red devils root) which is claimed to cure superficial carcinomas too. The documentation on their site is not as scientifically correct as one would wish, but rather very "commercial". The product has effect though but if it is enough is too early for me to say.
Take care out there.

   Please...what type of "outlet" did you find the milkweed pill? Hope it is available in the USA. Thanks, Cathy

   Hi
The pills may not contain extract from Euphorbia peplus but something quite different, if I have interpreted it correctly.

Anywhy- I fail to see how a pill can be applied topically!

The only "safe" way to get what you need is to grow the plant yourself.(until the pharmaceutical products will eventually be available from Peplin).
I bought mine from http://www.b-and-t-world-seeds.com/cart.asp?searchfor=Euphorbia%20peplus
at a cost of nearly 100 euros. Some seeds have grown into plants and they look healthy and are growing well.

My experience so far is very positive. The sap seems particularly efficient removing "pre-stage" skin cancer. You develop a trained eye for signs of abnormalities after some years. I apply the sap as soon as I see signs and they disappear normally after only three days of twice per day application.A reddening of the skin remains for a month or so.
"True" cancers take much longer (I have tried applying for 4 weeks) to remove and I do not know if they will come back.
All this makes sense, as in a pre-stage, there are still a lot of healthy cells around, mixed with the malignant ones. The treatment then "kills" mainly the malignant cells leaving the healthy ones to proliferate normally.

However, a well established cancer may have replaced the healthy cells all together, so there are none to replace the killed cancer cells, leaving damaged tissue and scars.

By the way malignant melanoma is a potentially very dangerous disease, as you know, and there is no time experimenting with unproven remedies.

   Is milkweed the same as milk thistle? My wife takes a supplement with Milk Thistle's Silymarin with Isosilybin B in it.

   Apparently milk thistle is Silybum marianum

But milkweed is a euphoria , so quite different

   correct misspelling, not euphoria but rather euphorbia

The edit function on this discussion forum does not work for me, hence the need for an additional post.
