Cancer is an abnormal growth of cells in any tissue or organ of the body. The incidence of cancer is rising alarmingly since a couple of decades because we are exposed to various cancer causing agents, known as carcinogens, in the food we eat, in the water we drink and in the air we breathe. Moreover, life is full of stress, from cradle to grave, that further enhances the risk of cancer by suppressing immune system of the body.

Normal cell division in our body is a highly regulated phenomenon, which is controlled by growth regulatory genes (segments of DNA) and pathways. Prolonged exposure to various carcinogens damages the DNA leading to mutations in genes including oncogenes (ras, N-myc, c-myc, HER-2/neu, etc), tumour suppressor genes (p53, Rb, Ret, WT-1, APC, etc) and pathways (ras, Rb, myc, etc) resulting in loss of control over normal cell division. These abnormal mutated cells go haywire, proliferate indiscriminately usually forming a mass, known as neoplasm, or malignant tumour, or in simple words, a cancer.

With the passage of time cancer cells acquire more mutations to gain more evil characteristics such as ability to invade and move into the adjoining tissues, create new blood vessels for their nutrition (tumour angiogenesis), evade the process of programmed cell death (apoptosis) and acquire the ability of limitless replication thus making cancer cells immortal.

A few of the overcrowded cancer cells break from primary tumour and travel through lymphatic & blood vessels to lodge in other parts of the body and form new colonies, leading to spread of cancer, known as metastases.

By the time a cancer is diagnosed, the cancer cells might have acquired many more mutations, for example, a pancreatic cancer might have acquired 50 to 60 mutations at the time of diagnosis while a breast or a colon cancer might have 50 to 80 mutations, when diagnosed.

The transformation of a normal cell into a cancerous cell is probably not such a critical event in the genesis of cancer rather it is the inability of body's immune system to identify and destroy the newly formed cancer cells, when they are few in numbers. Genesis of cancer is regarded as rarest of rare event in healthy people but it has been observed that the risk of cancer is multiplied in those people, whose immune system is suppressed due to any factor including chronic stress, old age, chronic debilitating disease, viral infections (such as HIV, HPV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C) and abuse of drugs such as analgesics, antibiotics and corticosteroids.

A team of doctors and scientists worked together to explore the role of Ayurveda in the treatment of cancer. As cancer is a malady of genes so the fight against cancer was focused at normalising the cancer cells by reversing mutations in the genes. Over a period of more than two decades, this research team identified more than 450 anticancer herbs and shortlisted 15 herbs having DNA repairing, anti-mutagenic, anti-tumour-angiogenic, proapoptotic, immunoenhancing, radioprotective, chemoprotective and anti-stress properties to develop Cancertame Ayurvedic Formulation that helps to fight cancer without side effects.

Cancertame also helps to reduce the side effects of chemotherapy & radiotherapy including bone marrow suppression and other life threatening complications.

Cancertame helps to boost the immune system of body against cancer by enhancing the activity of immune cells and promoting production of cytokines (including interleukins, interferons, tumour necrosis factors & colony stimulating factors) that help to fight cancer more effectively. Cancertame also enhances the activity of ‘T’ cells, ‘NK’ cells, ‘LAK’ cells and macrophages.

Cancertame is a better remedy, especially for those patients, who have become resistant or refractory to chemotherapy. Cancertame can be taken alone or along with chemotherapy, radio-therapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy or any other treatment before and after the surgery.
