Apoptosis inducing therapy at Oasis of Hope

Apoptosis is the natural process God designed to help the body protect itself from cancer. Insulin and IGF-1 block apoptosis in cancerous cells, which, needless to say, allows cancer to gain a foothold within the body.

Over the last several decades, molecular biology has gradually been unraveling the way in which the body’s cells work. “Signal transduction” refers to the way in which cellular proteins undergo small and usually reversible changes in their structure to induce alterations in cell behavior.

The genetic material of cancer cells is typically altered in ways that over-activate intracellular signal transduction mechanisms; specifically, the ones related to the malignant behavior of cancer. Some of these mechanisms prevent the process of apoptosis (programmed cell death) as well as support cellular multiplication, tissue invasion and metastasis (the spread of cancer to distant organs) and resistance to being killed by chemotherapy or radiation.

Cell Signal Transduction Therapy seeks to regulate the signaling pathways in cancer cells to make them easier to control or kill.

One of the goals at Oasis of Hope is to use nutrients, phytochemicals (natural chemicals derived from plants) and currently available drugs to suppress signal transduction pathways that are overactive in cancer cells, or to boostpathways that are underactive.

This inhibits the cancer cell’s capacity to grow, spread to distant organs and grow the new blood vessels necessary to feed tumors. The nutrients, phytochemicals and safe drugs we use in the Cell Signal Transduction Therapy include such familiar supplements as omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil, milk thistle extract (silibinin) and green tea extract, plus less familiar substances and safe drugs such as boswellic acids, salsalate, diclofenac and disulfiram.
