Cancer-Enabling Enzyme Can Be Blocked Naturally

leave a comment »


A discovery made by Dr. Matthias Rath on how nutrient synergy can halt the cascading series of events that lead to the metastasis of cancer has been recently confirmed by Research done at Copenhagen University and published in the International Journal of Cancer.

The Danish study found that the lack of the enzyme urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) can stop the spread of cancer, as shown in mice genetically modified to not have the enzyme. The absence of uPA prevents the ability of cancer cells to dissolve collagen and metastasize to other parts of the body, but today there are no pharmaceutical solutions to block uPA.

Dr. Matthias Rath’s research shows that blocking this enzyme can be achieved naturally. In 1992, Dr. Rath published research suggesting the use of amino acid lysine as a natural inhibitor of plasmin and other enzymes (matrix metalloproteinases) involved in collagen digestion. Recently, Dr. Rath and his team of researchers at the Matthias Rath Research Institute in Cellular Medicine, Santa Clara, CA have identified a specific combination of nutrients that can inhibit the activity of collagen dissolving enzymes and stop the spread of cancer cells. Dr. Rath’s research shows that Vitamin C, the amino acids L-lysine and L-proline, and a green tea extract known as Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG) work together to synergistically block the spread of cancer cells through connective tissue. In addition, this specific nutrient synergy can reduce new blood vessel formation, which supplies blood to tumors (angiogenesis), inhibit cancer cell replication, and induce a natural “suicide” cycle in cancer cells (apoptosis).

“The most effective way to control cancer is by attacking cancer simultaneously at all four ways it threatens health: its spread, growth, lifespan and survival,” says Dr. Rath.

Dr. Rath’s research, published in scientific journals and presented at many scientific conferences, points the way to a new era in the natural control of cancer, which is both more effective and safer than pharmaceutical methods.
