Stuart Lanson, M.D., Treats Hepatitis C with Liver Peptides

Scottsdale, Arizona clinical ecologist Stuart Lanson, M.D. is an allergist holding board certification in environmental medicine. He is the medical director of the Scottsdale Ear, Nose, Throat, Allergy, and Environmental Health Center. Regarding treatment with liver peptides, he says:

I use the liquid liver peptides for those of my patients who are environmentally ill with xenobiotics, allophatic hydrocarbons, pesti-cides, PCBs, and solvents. All of these toxins are stored in body fat, but they can be measured in the blood in parts per billion.

For those patients who have problems with detoxification, I employ the frozen, liquid liver extract as a standard treatment. Also I use this extract for those people suffering from the various hepatitis illnesses, most particularly for viral hepatitis C.

For example, a woman in her early forties coming to me from a nearby Arizona city had a clear diagnosis of hepatitis C. All of her liver enzymes were severely elevated and her symptoms included an enlarged, tender liver, lethargy, poor appetite, nausea, vomiting, fever, joint pains, and jaundice. I put her on multiple nutritional supplements, an elevated dosage of olive leaf extract, and NatCell™ Liver. I did this in order to have these substances work together against the virus and to strengthen her liver. Also I treated some of her allergies with immunotherapy and preservative free antigens.

This woman has now dramatically improved. Her liver enzymes have returned to normal levels and her various symptoms have left. She reports having the same normal amount of energy as she had before she contracted hepatitis C. My patient has now returned to work; she has expressed her happiness to me; and she is basically quite well.

I do need to put in the limiting information that most of these hepatitis C patients do not show improvements in their viral counts. The counts continue to remain elevated, even though my patients exhibit wellness and state that they feel better. The viral numbers do not seem to lower significantly," and blood tests indicate that their viruses have not disappeared.

Still, I do treat many hepatitis C patients who respond just fine to the strengthening of their liver organs by their sublingually ingesting the live cell liver treatment. This treatment overcomes their severe fatigue, impaired liver function, and elevated liver enzymes. They see noticeable symptomatic improvement! Invariably the patients' fatigue goes away, and they are able to work once again. Of course, I add other modalities besides the bovine liver growth factors, but these peptides are definitely helpful in repairing damaged liver organs. My finding is that the tiny live proteins repair a damaged liver.

Among the hundreds of clinical journal research reports that can be acquired from an Internet search of Medline, the following are only a few about the great physiological and metabolic advantages made available by liver growth factors. Research on liver growth factors has been conducted both on animals and cultures in laboratories, as well as on sick patients receiving treatment in clinics and medical offices.

From the Department of Internal Medicine at Keio University in Tokyo, Japan, researchers report that a combined preparation of liver growth factors and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) has been widely used for patients with chronic liver disease. In particular, those Japanese suffering with hepatitis C viral infections (HCV) benefited from intravenous injections of this preparation. It seems to be a potent agent for the enhancement of the anti?viral efficacy of interferon (IFN) in patients with chronic hepatitis C (CH?C). (39)

Extracts from the weaning pig liver, although not bovine, also have acted synergistically with hepatocyte growth factors to stimulate improved function of the liver cells. The researchers did report that in the absence of added porcine growth factors, the extracts had no activity.

From the Third Department of Internal Medicine, National Defense Medical College in Saitama, Japan we learn about the peptide growth factor known as Transforming Growth Factors?alpha (TGF?alpha). These particular growth factors cause biological activity when they come in contact with an extract of human exocrine pancreatic cancer associated with humoral hypercalcemia of malignancy. (40)

Two mitogenic pepticles in bovine liver extracts show mitogenesis and other metabolic activity when they come in contact (in the laboratory) with basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF). (41)

Originally described as a hepatocyte peptide specific mitogen, hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) is a potent stimulator of DNA synthesis in a wide variety of cell types. It has the unique ability to transmit information that determines the spatial organization of epithelial cells in tissues as well as induce cell migration and invasion of extracellular matrix in a variety of epithelial cells. HGF is involved in physiological processes such as embryogenesis and development and in pathophysiological processes such as regeneration and carcinogenesis. (42)

Investigations conducted at the University of Alabama in Birmingham, U.S.A. indicate that HGF is an important mediator of interactions for carrying on human mitogenesis, motogenesis, and morphogenesis. (43)

As a mesenchymal derived morphogen, HGF supports epithelial branching duct formation in the developing lung. It prevents the onset or progress of hepatic fibrosis/cirrhosis and accompanying severe liver failure. HGF may be used successfully as treatment for vascular disease, gastric ulcers, diabetes mellitus, and neuronal disease. (44)

From the Department of Pathology at the University of Pittsburgh, we learn that HGF, epidermal growth factor (EGF), TGF?alpha, IL?6, tumor necrosis factor?alpha (TNF?alpha), insulin, and norepinephrine each play important roles in the sequential changes of gene expression, growth factor production, and morphologic structure.

The Potential Healing Benefits of Live Cell Liver Peptides

Located under the diaphragm and occupying most of the right hypochondrium and part of the epigastrium of the abdomen, the liver provides vital functions for the body by means of its growth factors.

In preparing for our interview about his use of frozen, liquid, bovine liver peptide growth factors, Dr. Howard Benedict, a nutrition?oriented chiropractor practicing in New York City, discussed with me the potential healing benefits of these frozen liver peptides. In summary, Dr. Benedict offers the following information about the liver's numerous growth factors:

· The growth factors of the liver have vascular functions, in that they cause the liver to store blood, regulate blood clotting, cleanse blood, discharge waste products into the bile, and aid the immune system by filtering the blood to remove bacteria and adding certain immune factors.
· They have secretory functions, in that they aid digestion by synthesizing and secreting bile and keeping hormones in balance. .
· They have metabolic functions in that they help to manufacture new proteins, produce quick energy, regulate fat storage, control the production and excretion of cholesterol, store certain vitamins, minerals, and sugars, metabolize alcohol, carbohydrates, proteins, and fat, and proceed with detoxifying, neutralizing, and destroying xenobotic substances such as drugs, pesticides, chemicals, and pollutants
· They are therapeutic when administered for fatty liver, hepatitis, fibrosis, cirrhosis, and damage to the liver as the result of exposure to internal and environmental toxins.

Dr. Benedict says:

Patients who consulting receive a functional liver assessment or test, and I check their phase one and phase two metabolic liver detoxification processes.

A patient's liver is challenged with caffeine or aspirin to determine its function; and if there is an elevation of enzymes, tissues within the liver designed for detoxification are tested for breakdown. Liver enzyme elevation indicates such tissue breakdown. That being the case, I intervene on behalf of the patient to enhance his or her health and well-being on a functional level, way before there is the onset of disease.

For those people with advanced liver pathology, the usual orthomolecular nutritional treatment protocols such as the taking of vitamin C, alpha lipoic acid, milk thistle, curcuminoids, dandelion, green tea, and others are not enough. The more aggressive and effective treatment required is the NatCell™ Liver. Such therapy helps the patient's liver regenerate. In many situations, especially in chronic illnesses, giving someone a chance by feeding his or her ailing organ the live liver peptide growth factors, taken from a bovine source, does the job.
