HPV is a Causing a Cancer Epidemic
HPV has made the headlines over the past few years because it is prevalent in our population and it has been linked to cervical cancer.
42% of women have the virus at some time
High risk HPV accounts for 5% of all cancers worldwide
95% of all cervical cancers are caused by HPV
85% of anal cancers
50% of vaginal, vulvar & penile cancers and some throat/tongue (“oropharyngeal”) cancers
By 2020, HPV is projected to cause more oropharyngeal cancers than cervical cancers in the United States
All this attention has led to interested parties such as pharmaceutical companies to develop vaccines and other products designed to prevent infection, but there has been little attention paid towards eradicating HPV from infected individuals. The NIH stated recently “There is currently no medical treatment for HPV infections”
Now There is a Potential Therapy for HPV Through American BioSciences
Just recently there was a groundbreaking presentation at the Society of Gynecological Oncology by the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston that showed the alpha-glucan AHCC could eradicate the human papillomavirus virus (HPV) in mice. The researchers hoped that they would achieve a reduction in viral load, but instead found that the virus was eradicated. To verify their results the research was performed a second time. Treatment regimen was for 90 days and no HPV was found in the mice 30 days after treatment. There was also an indication that AHCC slowed the growth of HPV related tumors.
American Biosciences has been the industry leader in providing AHCC to the medical professional community. AHCC was originally introduced in 1999 as Immpower and quickly became a leader in immune system modulation. In 2012 ImmpowerER was developed to satisfy the needs of doctors to have a professional only AHCC product. ImmpowerER is a time-release AHCC product that delivers AHCC at uniform levels over a 12 hour period per dose. It is also priced to give the physician an advantage cost wise over the original Immpower product.
