Default AGS question

Husband has seen an HSI report about some cancer curing remedy called AGS. I searched but failed to find anything about this.



Does anyone know about it?

Thanks.

Hopeless Cancer Patients

In 1999, a leading doctor in cancer treatment was sought out by a number of cancer patients who were so far gone that their bodies weren't responding to any of the standard therapies. Because they were classified as 'untreatable,' he decided to give them a new therapy that showed promise-a non-sugar component of a glycoside group called AGS.
Five years later, all of these patients were supposed to be dead, but 86% of them were still alive and kicking. So we know AGS works!
Since then, he has been seeing more successes, and his biopsy technicians are rubbing their eyes in disbelief at how fast it works.
The 24-Hour Miracle
It kills cancer cells in one day. Researchers have used AGS on deadly melanoma tumors, and cancer cell death comes at high speed-reported results have been in as little as 24 hours. Remarkable, huh? No, it's stupendous. Imagine: If you were diagnosed with cancer next Tuesday, wouldn't it be terrific to find out on Wednesday that it's definitely going away?
AGS shuts down tumors without dissolving them chemically. One of the hottest fields in cancer research is the tactic of 'starving' tumors to death by shutting off their blood supply-a gentle solution that beats chemotherapy by a mile and a half. Researchers used AGS on cancer cells that had spread to patients' lungs (once it's there, it usually goes everywhere), and incredibly, it shrank the lung tumors and stopped the disease in its tracks!
It beats even the new super-cancers. Here's the dirty little secret of chemo: It's rapidly creating new kinds of cancer that don't respond to conventional treatment at all. Just as germs become resistant to antibiotics, these new cancers are multiple-drug resistant. Near-frantic authorities are predicting four million people worldwide will soon die of these super-cancers. But insiders at a biotech firm investigating AGS recently leaked the incredible news that AGS has also been found to be effective in drug-resistant cancers. If the medical establishment would only wise up and get behind AGS, they could save three times more lives than have been lost in all the wars in U.S. history combined.
It has zero side effects. You've seen women lose every strand of their beautiful hair. That's because chemo and radiation attack growing cells, hair follicles being the first target. You've seen patients choose to die rather than continue to face the terror of nauseating treatments. But all this could be over with. Tests of AGS have concluded that it is non-toxic and carries with it no adverse effects. If you're quick on the trigger, you've spotted the meaning of this: AGS is so gentle that you can start taking it regularly as a preventive, to keep yourself cancer-free forever.
Hard to believe, but new studies are starting to show that AGS works on colon, lung, ovarian, kidney, and brain cancers. And another physician, Dr. Paul Ling Tai, is now seeing amazing results in patients with the deadliest cancer of all: Pancreatic.
The Bad News, the Good News
A prominent biotech firm (I can't mention the name) is pulling out all the stops to develop a drug based on AGS. But first, they have to take AGS apart molecule by molecule, then reconstruct the main ingredients artificially so they can patent it. After that comes the maddening, slow approval process. In a decade, it might be in the pharmacy. You'll find out more cancer cures like this one in your free bonus collection, The 50 Very Best Solutions to the Worst Health Problems of Today. Keep reading and you'll get the real, original AGS-at a fraction of the cost you'll pay for the drug version once it's even available!

This question came up on an HSI forum last year.

Quote:

Sapogenin (AGS)

What is it?

Aglycon Sapogenins (Dammarane Sapogenins) are extraordinarily effective anti-neoplastic (cancer fighting) substances.

What does it do?

The well known herb Panax ginseng, contains many substances called ginsenosides, which chemically are glycosides. Each ginsenoside contains a sugar and a non-sugar component. The non-sugar component is called an Aglycon Sapogenin (AGS)or Dammarane Sapogenin. There are many different kinds of these Aglycon Sapogenins, but the kind designated by the letter "R" have some remarkable properties. Once in the body they are broken down into Protopanaxadiol (PPD) and Protopanaxatriol (PPT.) There is also a metabolite called M1.

It turns out that these particular Aglycon Sapogenins are extraordinarily effective anti-neoplastic (cancer fighting) substances. Ginseng itself has no such property, probably because these substances are not concentrated enough in Ginseng root. Ginseng itself is fairly expensive but it takes 100 pounds of ginseng to get just 1 gram (a 30th of an ounce) of Algycon Ginsenoside. Some glycon ginsenosides actually promote tumor growth so they must be removed.

Among the benefits of Algycon Sapogenin are:

1. Near zero toxicity.

2. Effective against multiple drug resistant (MDR) cancers for which there is no treatment. The problem with cancers is as they multiply they mutate continuously. Many different genotypes may exist in one tumor and a drug may address only certain genotypes. The mutants are also selected to be resistant to the chemotherapy drug. AGS induces cancer cell death (apoptosis) by multiple pathways. AGS can reverse multiple drug resistance by inhibiting P-gp protein.

3. Enhances the therapeutic index of presently available chemotherapy drugs (i.e. Paclitaxel or mitoxanthrone) from between 1,000 to 20,000 times MDR Associated Chemosensitivity Enhancement (MACE).

4.Broad anticancer effectiveness on a wide range of cancer tissues (i.e. Glioblastoma SF 120, Prostate Cancer LNCaP, Breast Cancer MCF7, Melanoma B 16, Gastric Cancer KATO III, Lung Carcinoma H460 & H838.) In vitro (test tube) studies showed cytotoxicity to all cancer cell lines with zero survival at 40 micromolar concentration.

5. Crosses the blood brain barrier for effective treatment of brain cancer. In vitro animal implanted animal studies showed more than 45% survival at 45 days vs 0% for the controls after 18 days.

6. Attacks only cancer cells with no harm to normal cells. Among its effects on cancer cells is to arrest proliferation at the G1 stage. Induce cancer cells into benign differentiation. Decrease the rate of carcinogen formation by suppressing the functions of the P450 enzyme system. Competing with the estrogen receptor and inhibiting cell growth from estrogen stimulation.

One naturopathic doctor started using it in 1999 on 15 cancer patients who had not responded to other therapy. He says that 13 of them are still alive.

Another M.D. treating 15 patients with end stage cancer says that 85% are enjoying a good quality of life with diminished pain and more energy.

Another doctor who invented the protocol is following pancreatic cancer patients who typically live only 40 to 90 days after diagnosis. He says all are alive and enjoying a surprisingly good quality of life several months later.

Drug companies are working on a patentable version of this plant extract (one is called PBD-2131) but it is likely going to be the usual long process before it gains approval. The natural version works now.

For more information see Dammarane Sapogenins.

Examples of products:

Careseng BFG

Careseng SG2

Quite extensive research appears to have been carried out in China although there does not appear to be any scientific human trials carried out.

The company, Pegasus Pharmaceuticals, appears to have received backing from the Canadian government, so it is probably a bona fide product which appears to enhance the effect of chemotherapy as well.

Just me, Thank you, thank you. That led to
Astrocyte Medium & Growth Supplement

Now, to work out how to use it.

Any ideas, anyone?

Rather than surgery or radiation for my recently diagnosed prostate cancer, it sounds like I could take AGS and just kill it.
I gather it can be purchased from Pegasus Pharmaceuticals- correct.

Many thanks

Looks like they are carrying out clinical trials in a couple of East European countries.

Default New info on AGS?

A patient brought me an article from HSI on AGS. Is there any updates? Is this currently being used on humans? Is it available? I have several patients with cancer and would like to know all the ramifications about AGS.

You would be better contacting the Pharmaceutical group that are developing the product about how successful it is. They have a website that sells the product and they can give you any further information.

If I can get my hands on this product I will let you know if it works. I am a multiple myeloma patient and I am at the end of a trial study for carfilzomib and it did a great job, with very little, if any side effects. However, my M-spike and Igg numbers have plateaued and that generally means my cancer will begin to grow in strength once again. At this time there is no cure and life expectancy is between 3 to 5 years. I was 55 when this crap nearly capped my ass and have struggled for the past 2 1/2 yrs, to get as healthy as possible to counteract the chemo. This compound sounds worth a try. I'll get back to you folks asap, when I get my hands on it.

Cronkster

There have been quite a few studies done on MM and vitamin D, and not just for the possible bone problems. MM raises the inflammatory cytokines and vitamin D can help with suppressing these. If you have not already had your vitamin D levels checked I would press for your doctor to carry out this test and get them up to an effective level.
Because high calcium levels are sometimes part of MM symptoms,vitamin D should only be taken in consultation with a doctor who can monitor calcium levels.

Low vitamin D causes high parathyroid hormone levels which can damage the heart and kidneys which is the last thing you need.

Good Luck.
