Page 30 | Abby's Magazine - Pancreatic Cancer Progress Case Reports Steve Jobs. Patrick Swayze. Luciano Pavarotti. Jack Benny. You are most likely familiar with these famous personalities who died of pancreatic cancer. What causes pancreatic cancer is unclear. What we do know is that it is a silently insidious disease, asymptomatic in its early stages but very aggressive in the late stages. Once diagnosis is made, it is usually too late. The pancreas produces hormones like insulin to help our body process sugar. It also produces enzymes that help us digest food. Cancer impairs these vital pancreatic functions which is what makes it so deadly. But don't let a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer be a death sentence. Try to fight it. There is always hope and there are always options out there. Here we share with you stories from pancreatic cancer patients. Pancreatic Cancer Cases Case 1: Pancreatic Cancer Survivor PROTOCOL: Angiostop, Revivin, immune-boosting supplements F. Akbarpour, MD, of the Orange County Immune Institute in California, relates the case of a 78-year-old male patient with metastatic pancreatic cancer (timeline of his progress is below). The 4.5 cm tumor was located at the head of the pancreas. In February 2010, he was already suffering from jaundice (yellow urine, yellow sclera); his bile duct was already blocked. A stent was added to the bile duct, improving his jaundice. His cancer marker, CEA, was 210 at this point. Two specialists from UC San Francisco and UCLA have already determined that surgery would be difficult in his case because of the location of the tumor. In April 2010, the cancer had started to spread; some spots were seen in his lungs and liver. Around this time he started taking Angiostop, Revivin and immune-boosting supplements. By July 2010, a PET scan revealed very positive improvement. His CEA dropped to 11. He continued taking the supplements until May 2011 when he was declared cancer-free. Case 2: Pancreatic Cancer Shrinkage PROTOCOL: Angiostop, Revivin, Reishi Spore Extract A. Sayler, CN from Florida, shares the tremendous progress of Simi L., a 66-year-old female patient with pancreatic cancer. Like in the case above, the tumor was also located at the head of the pancreas. She started chemotherapy and radiation in March 2013. At this time, the tumor was 4.8 x 3.9 cm(2) in size. Two months later, in May 2013, she stopped chemo and radiation. By July 2013, her tumor size was 4.0 x 3.5 cm(2), no significant improvement from a few months before. In August 2013, she started taking Angiostop, Revivin and Reishi Spore Extract. Three months later, there was much improvement in the size of her tumor. By March 2014, seven months after she started the supplements, her tumor size has reduced to 2.0 x 1.2 cm(2). In both cases, the core supplement regimen included Angiostop and Revivin, both of which have strong cancer-fighting mechanisms. Basic Protocol for Pancreatic Cancer Patients ANGIOSTOP (Sea Cucumber Extract) Angiostop is a sea cucumber extract containing various active saponins, such as Philinopside, Echinoside and Frondoside, exhibiting anti-cancer effects. In particular, in vitro and in vivo studies show that sea cucumber inhibited the increase of AsPC-1 human pancreatic cancer cells in a concentration- and time-dependent manner. Researchers found that it did so by inducing apoptosis (cell death) through the mitochondrial pathway as well as activation of the caspase cascade. A recent study found that sea
