Recently Diagnosed or Relapsed? Stop Looking For a Miracle Cure, and Use Evidence-Based Therapies To Enhance Your Treatment and Prolong Your Remission

Multiple Myeloma an incurable disease, but I have spent the last 25 years in remission using a blend of conventional oncology and evidence-based nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle therapies from peer-reviewed studies that your oncologist probably hasn't told you about.

Avemar as Non-Toxic Multiple Myeloma Therapy

Share Button

(Avemar) which apparently has been used favorably in the treatment of a bunch of human cancers, notably ovarian cancer, gastric cancer, thyroid cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and multiple myeloma.

I am a long-term multiple myeloma survivor working to remain in complete remission, manage my long-term side effects and prevent the real possibility of a treatment-related secondary cancer. According to the research linked below Avemar kills cancer cells aka prevents cancer/ multiple myeloma, is anti-angiogenic, and helps my chemotherapy-induced cardiomyopathy.

After more than 15 years researching and writing about multiple myeloma I have come to the conclusion that the dozens of non-toxic, non-conventional therapies available to multiple myeloma patients and survivors  can enhance conventional cancer therapy(ies) while reducing toxicity.

Not just vitamins and minerals but anti-oxidant/anti-angiogenic supplementation combined with nutrition and diets such as an anti-angiogenic diet. According to the studies linked and excerpted below, Avemar is one of those non-toxic therapies. 

My point is that following an evidence-based, non-toxic, anti-cancer diet combined with anti-cancer, antiangiogenic supplementation is pretty straightforward. And its not that expensive either.

Nothing high-tech either- I still Avemar into my juice each morning…

I’m often conflicted about this last part- multiple myeloma is an incurable cancer in the eyes of conventional oncology. Standard-of-care FDA approved MM therapies will lead to remission, relapse, remission, relapse and end-stage MM.

Standard-of-care, FDA approved MM therapies will result in short, long-term and late stage side effects. I believe that MM patients and survivors must learn about and consider both evidence-based MM therapies as well as non-conventional therapies.

For more information about anti-cancer nutrition and supplementation, scroll down the page, post a question or a comment and I will reply ASAP.

thank you,

Mechanism of the anti-angiogenic effect of Avemar on tumor cells

“Avemar, a derivative of fermented wheat germ extract, is a non-toxic and natural compound that is used as a dietary supplement by cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Avemar has numerous biological activities, and several recent studies have reported that it may also have metastatic and anti-angiogenic effects. In the present study, the mechanism of the anti-angiogenic effect of Avemar on human cancer cells was investigated…

In conclusion, the present study indicates that Avemar diminishes angiogenic activity in various tumor cell lines. This is mediated through decreased Cox-2 and VEGF levels. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report examining the mechanism of the anti-angiogenic effect of Avemar on gastric, prostatic, cervical and lung cancer cells. We hope that this study will encourage further studies into the anti-angiogenic effects of Avemar alone and in combination with other anticancer agents.”

Fermented wheat germ extract (avemar) in the treatment of cardiac remodeling and metabolic symptoms in rats.

” Our results in these rat models of hypertension and diet-induced obesity show that treatment with Avemar improved cardiac function, decreased macrophage infiltration resulting in decreased collagen deposition in the ventricular myocardium, reversed an increased stiffness of the left ventricle in the diseased hearts and attenuated increased plasma malondialdehyde concentrations.

In addition to the changes in the heart, Avemar reversed glucose intolerance, normalized systolic blood pressure and decreased visceral fat deposition in rats fed a high-fat/high-carbohydrate diet.

In conclusion, the fermented wheat germ extract Avemar has a potential role in attenuating chronic hypertension, diabetes or metabolic syndrome-induced cardiovascular symptoms along with metabolic abnormalities such as glucose tolerance and obesity.”

Avemar (wheat germ extract) in cancer prevention and treatment.

“Avemar is a nontoxic wheat germ extract registered as a special nutriment for cancer patients in Hungary. It shows potent anticancer activity on cell lines by deeply interfering with glucose metabolism and affecting expressions of several kinases. In in vivo experimental models, Avemar is also effective by enhancing the activity of the immune system such as stimulating NK cell activity (by reducing MHC I molecule expression), enhancing TNF secretion of the macrophages, increasing ICAM 1 molecule expression on the vascular endothelial cells. All of these lead to apoptosis of tumor cells. The wide range of biological activity of Avemar probably cannot be explained by only one active ingredient.

Since there are numerous experimental data and the clinical benefit repeatedly confirmed Avemar can be one of the most potent and best researched food supplements available for cancer patients.”

Effect of Avemar and Avemar + vitamin C on tumor growth and metastasis in experimental animals.

“Tumor models of different origin [a highly metastatic variant of the Lewis lung carcinoma (3LL-HH), B16 melanoma, a rat nephroblastoma (RWT-M) and a human colon carcinoma xenograft (HCR25)]–kept in artificially immunosuppressed mice were applied…

According to the results of other experiments–carried out in our laboratory in parallel with those described here–Avemar proved to have a meaningful immunostimulatory effect. It might therefore be suggested that the observed metastasis-inhibiting effect of this preparation may be mainly due to its immunostimulatory properties”

Safety studies regarding a standardized extract of fermented wheat germ

“”Avemar pulvis” is a powder consisting of an aqueous extract of fermented wheat germ, with the drying aids maltodextrin and silicon dioxide, standardized to contain approximately 200 microg/g of the natural constituent 2,6-dimethoxy-p-benzoquinone. The results of toxicological and clinical studies of this product demonstrate its safety for its intended use as a dietary supplement ingredient in the United States. Avemar pulvis has been used in Hungary since 1998 and is approved in that country, as well as in the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, and Romania, as a “medical nutriment for cancer patients.” Acute and subacute toxicity studies using rodents orally administered Avemar pulvis showed that dose levels (2000 to 3000 mg/kg body weight [bw]/day) exceeding the normal recommended oral dosage (8.5 g/day or 121 mg/kg bw/day for a 70-kg individual) by up to approximately 25-fold caused no adverse effects…”
