Galactin 3 and Cancer cell subtypes study

I mention this 2013 study as it is a good explanation of PC cell subtypes, the role of Galactin3 and Androgen Receptors in helping to determine which is which. It is somewhat scholarly but has clear explanations and seems a "solid" study. They mention Modified Citrus Pectin (Nalakrats!) as an inhibitor of Galactin3.

  • Thanks for Paper--one I have not seen--But confirms my consistent use of Modified Citrus Pectin, to bind/cleave Galactin-3--I am now starting month number 9, and still follow the Protocol of the Israeli Phase 2 and the USA-Phase 3 Clinical Trials. Hopefully the AR situation is handled by ADT.

  • Do let us (me) know what your thoughts on Modified Citrus Pectin are after your appointment.

  • Very Positive---but with big cancer Institutes involved in many Clinical trials, such as the Levine Cancer Institute---My Doc. Heads a Group for Prostate Cancer--and has many Clinical trials, in go---he has a vested interest: his father has Pca--and now in remission---and the father has Gene Mutations, passed to my Doctor---he told me he had a 50-50 chance of himself getting Prostate Cancer.

    But his answer--to your question--he is very aware of Galactin-3, and if the final results of the Israeli trial and the one in the USA, conclude or validate, positive results---he will support its use. He is an integrated medical practitioner. A believer of Medical Drugs --combined with alternative non-medical materials/foods/supplements/vitamins/minerals etc.---for treatment, of Pca.

    So he will await final reports---but he supports my use 1000%.

  • I have already ordered Pectasol-C from Amazon. I was taking only 2 capsules a day up to now. You have found a good medical partner. Get him to move to Humboldt county, CA, would you?

    Thanks,

  • Really Good--he mentioned a new drug---I did not get the spelling down---he said it is so new, that the Pharm. Co. gave him free doses for a year for 25 people--and can be used at any stage of your journey--He has used it, in a small trial he developed, and has gotten 80% solid remissions---on some stage 4 Pca cases---So I asked him---why not use it on me---he said--after initial dosing--it would cost 15,000 a month, because I have not failed all my options, and I am still undetectable, as to PSA---it is that new--and he said it took 2 billion to develop.

    As to Pectasol-C follow the 3 doses a day on an empty stomach.

    Best to take the scoop of 5 grams, throw it to the back of your throat--and have plenty of water handy to get it down---it does not mix very well with liquids---maybe 50% solubility--I have no patience to mix and mix ---so I throw it back and wash it down.

  • Thanks, Nalakrats. My Pectasol-C is on it's way.

    My guess is that your Dr.'s new drug and others to come will lead to the term "remission" instead of "palliative" for we PC guys in not too many years.

  • I kind of got that--I went over about 8 targeted drug categories that are hot and new. I think he was amazed I was up on these drugs---but he is in a different situation---where Labs from companies come and say we have this THING, and it is working really well in mice---so there are things we Pca victims never hear about until they hit the Market, in some manner. I can tell you there is a lot of activity---my Doc. is going back and forth with Docs. at MD Anderson, Sloan Memorial, John Hopkins, and Duke.

    We just need to stay alive--and stay as healthy as we can--keeping our bodies in the best shape we can, while under assault with drugs , chemo, radiation, etc.

    That is what I have concluded--I cannot control, the future, or the research to it.

  • Too right. Took my herbs, ate my plant based breakfast, lifted weights, now studying for my PHD in Patientology.

  • See my last Post back to pjoshea--on Pectasol-C.

    Nalakrats

  • Good reply. Thanks.

  • Thanks for posting this. I had to download the PDF file and then search on "pectin" to find that mention of it. I would have missed it if you hadn't mentioned it. I now have renewed interest in "modified citrus pectin" which I have not yet been using. You have to hand it to these researchers. All of that seems Greek, or maybe Latin, to me. I applaud their efforts.

  • I had come across MCP before and was taking 2 capsules a day. It was Nalakrats that got me to look into it more completely. The Galactin 3 study was informative in itself, but the mention of MCP got my attention. MCP has some real science backing and seems worth a "go".
