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.

Multiple Myeloma Cause- HPV? Maitake, Shiitake, AHCC

Share Button

Maitake, Shiitake and AHCC may all be able to kill human papillomavirus. HPV increases the risk of myeloma. I’m taking mushrooms…

Does the HPV a multiple myeloma cause? The studies linked and excerpted below point to HPV increasing the risk of multiple myeloma though I don’t think HPV caused my MM. If, however, a nutritional supplement, AHCC, is shown to cure my HPV, I’m going to take it.

The thread that winds through multiple myeloma cause (MM) and human papillomavirus  (HPV) is tenuous.  Being a MM survivor since ’94 who had HPV at diagnosis, I felt the articles linked below required examination.

As the strange looking diagram linked to the left indicates, the causes of MM are a mixture of genes, the environment, biology (age), race, and virus’ such as HPV.

My thinking, simply put, is that if HPV increases a person’s risk of a MM diagnosis then HPV will increase a MM patient’s risk of relapse. If a non-toxic nutriceutical can both stimulate immune function and can eliminate HPV then it only makes sense for a MM survivor with HPV to supplement with mushrooms.

I previously wrote a blog post citing the mushroom mixture in AHCC as being the best mixture of mushrooms to eliminate HPV but the study linked below cites a different mushroom product as being more effective than AHCC at killing HPV.

The bottom line is that several products of mushroom extracts enhance immune function and may also be able to eliminate HPV.

Human papillomaviruses (HPV) are associated with multiple myeloma.

“Human papillomaviruses (HPV) are small DNA tumor viruses, and are associated with epithelial neoplasias. Although HPV are believed to be exclusively permissive in terminally differentiated squamous cells, we have previously identified HPV sequences in lymphoid tissues of five patients.

Because this result suggested that the range of the host virus cells could include cells of lymphoid origin, we used PCR and in situ hybridization to analyze nonepithelial tissues of patients with multiple myeloma from two institutions.

A statistically significant association was established between HPV and multiple myeloma (p<0.001). This study supports the hypothesis that HPV can infect lymphoid cells.”

Immune-enhancing effects of Maitake (Grifola frondosa) and Shiitake (Lentinula edodes) extracts

“We measured phagocytosis, NK cell activity, and secretion of IL-6, IL-12, IFN-γ as well as C-reactive protein (CRP) after 14 days of oral application of tested glucans. For comparison, active hexose correlated compound (AHCC) was used in all reactions…

Short-term oral application of natural immunomodulating glucans from Maitake and Shiitake mushrooms strongly stimulated both the cellular and humoral branch of immune reactions. These activities were significantly higher than those of AHCC…

The Maitake mushroom extract used in our study is rich in β-glucans, while Shiitake whole mushroom powder is α-glucan rich. Active hexose correlated compound (AHCC) is a α-glucan-rich nutraceutical ingredient prepared by culturing Shiitake and other Basidiomycetes mushrooms. AHCC was originally developed for lowering blood pressure, but significant immunostimulating effects were found later ()…

Our current study clearly demonstrates that Maitake-derived glucan act via the same mechanisms as other highly active glucans to strongly stimulate immune defense reactions and, when combined with Shiitake glucan, the MaitakeGold 404-Shiitake blend is even more immunologically and biologically active than either glucan alone or AHCC…”

In First Human Trial, Mushroom Extract Cures HPV Infections

“At a recent Society for Integrative Oncology conference, Judith A. Smith, a pharmacist and an associate professor at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston Medical School, presented the results of a small study that found the supplement active hexose correlated compound (AHCC) can eliminate the HPV virus…”

The nutritional supplement is made from Japanese mushrooms.

Smith noted that human papilloma virus is linked to 99 percent of cervical cancers cases, as well as cases of many other potentially fatal cancers. As it stands, there are no medications or supplements that can effectively treat HPV.

In the study, 10 women who had tested positive for HPV were given AHCC once a day for up to six months. Upon retesting, five came back negative for the virus. In three of those women, the HPV stayed at bay after stopping AHCC treatment. The other two patients who tested negative are still in the study, aiming to complete a six-month treatment course of AHCC.

“With this study, for the first time, we’ve shown it’s possible to eradicate HPV in women using AHCC for only three months or up to six months,” Smith said…”

Extrachromosomal human papillomavirus (HPV) in multiple myeloma and monoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance (MGUS) patients.

“There are over 75 different types of human papillomavirus. Certain types have a strong association with cervical dysplasias. We have previously identified HPV in a chronic benign plasma cell tumor of the cervix, multiple myelomas and monoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance (MGUS)… We identified episomal forms in both the malignant and premalignant stages of B cell diseases. These data provide definitive proof of episomal HPV sequences in lymphoid tissues and question the current dogma that HPV is permissive only in terminally differentiated squamous cells.

HPV and Multiple Myeloma

“Human papillomaviruses are common viruses that can cause warts. There are more than 100 types of HPV. Most are harmless, but about 30 types put you at risk for cancer. These types affect the genitals and you get them through sexual contact with an infected partner. They can be either low-risk or high-risk. Low-risk HPV can cause genital warts. High-risk HPV can lead to cancers of the cervix, vulva, vagina, and anus in women. In men, it can lead to cancers of the anus and penis…”

Phase II Evaluation of AHCC for the Eradication of HPV Infections (AHCC4HPV)

“The primary outcome of this trial is achieving durable eradication persistent high risk HPV infection determined by HPV negative test results achieved while on active treatment with AHCC and maintained for 6 month post supplementation and 12 months post completion of AHCC treatment compared to placebo…”
