Neoplasene and Side Effects

Hello,

Last November my 13 year old cat was diagnosed with Lymphoma in her nasal cavity. She underwent 5 weeks of radiation therapy and is currently in remission. Per my veterinarian, we began treating her with 0.3ml of Neoplasene in her food twice daily. She does not suffer from nausea and does not mind the bitter taste. Every 3 months she undergoes ultrasound to make certain the cancer has not spread. Recently the vet noticed an inflamed liver, appearing in similarity to a cat with diabetes. She is in good health and has tested negative for diabetes.

I understand that the oral from of Neoplasene stimulates a wide body response and inflammation may be created at sites other than the original area of concern. This may be a favorable response, as new cancer cells may be in the process of being killed off.

My question is: if anyone has been treating their pet with Neoplasene, have there been any side effects related to internal organs such as the liver?

I appreciate any information and thanks for the response.

Neoplasene is a holistic chemotherapy which is exclusively provided by Buck Mountain. Here is there website link: Buck Mountain.

As I have no experience with Neoplasene I called the company today and spoke with Dr Fox. He says that Neoplasene has absolutely no history of causing any liver problems whatsoever. He says that since Neoplasene preferentially seeks out neoplastic (cancerous) cells, he thinks that the Neoplasene may have 'found' some cancer within the liver and is attacking it.

He asked on the dose and weight of your cat. Since I didn't have it - he states that he assumes that for a 10lb cat, you are on the 300 versus the 75mg. If at the 300, this is a strong but good dose for the situation. As long as your cat is feeling well and the liver enzymes are not dramatically elevated, then (from what we can tell without knowing more about your cat's medical records) this dose is likely helpful.

I hope this helps.

I would continue to follow the ultrasound changes and any blood abnormalities. Also if the diabetes test (blood and urine sugar levels) are negative, then they are negative. Your cat cannot get liver changes associated with diabetes before the tests would become positive as with other diseases.


Please let us know you everything goes. Best of luck

Dear Dr. Lee,

I was going to contact Buck Mountain later today, so thankyou for your reply to my question. While not good news if indeed there are cancer cells in her liver, I would hope the Neoplasene is in the process of destroying them.

Yes, she is on the 300mg protocol, there are no blood abnormalities and her urine levels are normal. While I wait anxiously when any of my pets are under sedation, the next step is to get a culture so we know exactly what we're dealing with.

Meanwhile, she is a happy, active and otherwise very healthy cat. I use an allopathic vet, a homeopathic vet and an oncologist so I can provide the best that modern and alternative medicine have to offer. Also she's on a 100%organic diet with plenty of fresh proteins (meat/poultry/fish/egg), veggies and supplements. So, as a loving and responsible pet guardian, I'll do all I can to keep her strong and we shall see what the future holds.

Thankyou again for your reply and good wishes. It's appreciated.
