My husband is taking Poly MVA and is now involved in one of their studies and is able to buy it at a lower price. He is a cancer patient with carcinoid cancer with mets to the liver. He recently has surgery. He started on the Poly MVA in June as well as the long acting Sandostatin LAR. His lab work Chromogranin A decreased almost 50% from the middle of June and the beginning of August. Was it the Sandostatin or the Poly MVA - I guess we will never know for sure, but I am convinced the Poly MVA is a wonderful supplement and actually I just recommended someone research it on another message board at this same site.

I have a friend whose bladder area cancer was such that he was not expected to live, two years ago. After POLY MVA and Ambrotose, as well as his Dr's care, today he is alive and well.
Another great and exciting nutritional 'buzz' at the moment is the ACAI berry and those fruit blends. See: http://news.ufl.edu/2006/01/12/berries/
This tells all about the leukemia cells being killed in the lab by the acai berry extract. The acai juice I'm currently using is Mona Vie and I know there are many, many other acai supplements.
Another excitement is a wheat germ extract called AVEMAR (Ave in the USA) that inhibits cancer tumor growth (see article for cancer types) better than leading drugs such as Tamoxifen. This is causing quite a stir: See: http://www.newhopeblog.com/archives/2007/06/wheat_germ_extr.
I do alot of 'looking' and research, as my mom and her mother had cancer (mother is well now) and I would like to avoid it, so I'm trying to be pro-active with nutrition and lifestyle choices.
I am always looking for more HOPE...wishing you the best.

Thank you so much for all the great info. I knew about Poly MVA but not the Acai juice & wheat germ. Sounds incredible. I just ordered 12 bottles of acai juice for my sister!
