Enzymes unmask cancer cells and strengthen the resistance


Treatment with enzymes

A frequent component of the biological cancer medicine is the treatment with enzymes. They become effective in triple manner and, hence, can be helpful in every phase of the illness to the adjuvant treatment.

Effects in the cancer cell

Tumour cells can camouflage themselves with a coat from protein (fibrin). Thereby they become badly recognizable for the resistance cells. This coat can be dissolved by protein-splitting enzymes.

This is important, because:

All cells carry recognition characters, so-called antigens on her surface. In the antigens different according to cell the resistance system makes a distinction under endogenic cells foreign to body. This can be compared with the number plates in cars. Cancer cells carry to remain with the comparison, disguised number plates. It is complicated to the "body policemen", the resistance cells, to distinguish friend and enemy. The antigens are exposed by enzymes. The tumour cell can be recognised and be attacked by resistance cells.

With every neoplasm the danger also insists that before or during the operation single cells take turns and settle in other cells of the body. They are able to menacing metastases heranwuchern. This danger is reduced by enzymes. The enzymes diminish the adhesive strength of removed tumour cells, and they make the blood waterier. In the faster fluent blood removed tumour cells get less opportunity to attach themselves somewhere and to grow. They are diminished or eliminated. Enzymes thereby counteract against the genesis of daughter's growths.

Effects on the immune system

With the resistance of cancer cells immune complexes can form, also blocking of factor called. They hinder and paralyze the resistance system. Immune complexes often originate with the cancer resistance. Tumour cells can push off her antigens or after lysis of tumour cells the empty antigens are preserved. They are marked by special resistance cells, the antibodies, nevertheless, as "an enemy". Antigens and antibodies stitch together themselves. There originate balls which irritate the resistance system and lead on wrong tracks. The fine blood vessels and lymphatic tracts can thereby block. Such immune complexes can be dissolved by enzymes. The activity of the phagocytes and killer cells can be directed again against the real enemy, the tumour cells.

With the lysis of tumour cells there originate different by-products. This "cell garbage" can also hinder the resistance achievement. Because it concerns, besides, mostly proteins, the protein-splitting enzymes can accelerate his Abräumung. Enzymes also promote the payment of Zytokinen, neurotransmitters like interleukin and tumour necrosis factor (TNF). The immune system is moved by the Zytokine on the alert and raised activity.

Decrease of side effects

Enzymes have other good qualities: they can restrain inflammations and remove tissue swells. Such tantalising manifestations often appear as side effects of aggressive therapies or as a result of the operations. These side effects of clinical therapies can be diminished by enzymes clearly or be prevented. Also the natural intestinal flora is influenced by enzymes favourably, diarrheas or emesis can be reduced.
Which enzymes?

Enzymes are used in varied form by the body. They are involved in almost all metabolism processes. Without enzymes, e.g., the digestion would not function, because they split fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Therapeutically they are also used for dissolving by blood clots. The body produces to themselves the enzymes partly itself or takes up them with the food.

With the adjuvant cancer therapy become above all proteolytische, used so protein-splitting enzymes. These are particularly Bromelain from the pineapple, Papain from the papaya, as well as trypsin and Chymotrypsin from pancreases of animals. The preparations contain these enzymes in highly cleaned form. Mixing preparations from several enzymes are more effective than single enzymes.

Use of the enzymes

Metastasis prevention:

Use before, during and some days after the operation in raised dosage.

Immune modulation:

long-term use after the first treatment (operation) in normal dosage (loudly instructions), mostly as a supplement and support of other therapies to the resistance strengthening - possibly with mistletoe, Thymus, pep tides.

Treatment of accompanying illnesses:

After operations lymphatic cutaneous dropsies can appear. With the patients whose defences are weakened it can come to infections with herpes zoster. A highly measured enzyme treatment can be helpful. With cutaneous dropsies they should be applied together with selenium and lymphatic drainage. During and after the first treatment in the clinic (operation) a highly measured intake is recommended first to the metastasis prevention. This is possibly the double to triple amount of the dosage given in the instructions with dragée. Or one applies the enzymes as a clyster.

Then after some weeks can be passed over to a long-term therapy. The everyday dose is reduced to the standard measure (loudly instructions or information of the therapeutist). This long-term therapy also becomes with advanced, Metastasierenden tumour ailments advised. If no more signs are given after about one year for a progress of the illness - if all re-examinations have proved no morbid findings - can be passed over to an interval therapy. She exists in a periodical stimulation of the immune system: during 1 week intake of the preparation in normal dose, three weeks of break, one week of intake, break etc.

In the first days of the enzyme treatment enzymes should be taken in a little higher dosage than given to remove perhaps present obstacles with the resorption. The intake should occur with richly water between the meals. The dragée or tablets may not become zerkaut.

Side effects

By the intake it can come for changes in the chair, possibly from colour, odour or consistency. This has no health meaning. On setting down the treatment the chair returns to normal again. The slightly laxative effect of the enzymes can be even welcome in many cases.

The odour change of the chair can appear before all with the therapy with raised doses. To determine the individually absorbable dose, the following action is recommended: one begins the intake with the normal dose and increases this from day to day, until the odour change appears. Then with this odour margin the individual resorption dose lies for the treatment with raised dose (see use).

If for other reasons blood-diluting preparations must be taken (Marcumar, aspirin supra ä.), enzymes or should not be taken only in arrangement with the therapeutist.

Enzyme preparations

There are enzyme preparations as dragée or tablets with a cover resistant to gastric juice, as a clyster and as an injection preparation.

Injections are used in special cases to the treatment by outpourings (about to one Pleuraerguß) or to the injection directly in or in the tumour.


Enzyme preparations are able of order. The order must be founded by the doctor compared with the cash. If the cash rejects the assumption of costs, contradiction should be inserted. A detailed leaflet to the "cost allowance by the legal health insurance scheme" can be requested at the society for biological cancer resistance.


Enzymes work particularly as an effect amplifier for other therapies. Therefore, her use should be connected in the adjuvant treatment of cancer with other medicine to the resistance strengthening. The efficacy of mistletoe, Thymus-or Peptidpräparaten can be thereby raised.
