In the past I suffered from pancreas cancer severely. I could hardly get to sleep, as well as my wife and other family members. I anticipated the worst happening. Still, I was sorry I had to face the end of my life when I’m no more than 46. But when I began to take the anti-cancer pills made of Scutellaria baicalensis and aralia-shoots in January this year, an astonishing miracle was wrought. One month after I adopted the administration I felt less pain and became better. Several months later I had an examination, and the size of tumour has dwindled to 1.6-0.7 cm from 3.5-2.5cm. Since then I have engaged myself in the treatment with a hope of relief. I’m sure I will be OK.

When I turned over 40, I began to feel pain in my stomach. Later I was diagnosed with gastric cancer. At that time I found myself almost giving up my life. It was so hopeless that my family were shedding tears. But when I took the anticancer pills made of Scutellaria baicalensis and aralia-shoots, I began to feel better. Now I’m completely recovered. Indeed, it was a fantastic medicine. I feel like to extend my gratitude to the developers.

Anti-Cancer Pills

p11Last year researchers of the anticancer medicine laboratory of the Tumour Institute of the Academy of Medical Science, developed the anticancer pill with Scutellaria baicalensis and aralia-shoots which are obtainable in Korea, the pill which is efficacious in prevention and treatment of cancer. There have been developed a lot of anticancer drugs of different kinds in the world over the past scores of years, and now it is a gloval trend to hit the main agent of cancer which causes the development of cancer cell, its multiplication, infiltration and transfer.

Doctor Ra Yong Ho, head of the laboratory and other researchers set a high aim to develop a molecular mark-based drug with Koryo medicinal herbs suited to the physical qualities of the Korean. Based on their rich experience – they already made MMP (Matrix Metalloproteinase) injection which inhibits spore – the researchers defined the MMP as the first generation drug and the one they would develop as the second generation. First of all, they chose it as the main task of study to make the drug with Koryo medicinal herbs richly found in their country, not by means of chemical method. They met with so many bottlenecks, but succeeded in developing the drug in a matter of a year, which is effective in treatment and harmless to the body, even in long administration.


The drug is prescribed for patients with gastric, breast, colon, pancreas and lung cancers before or after operation, and those who have imoperable cancer or deny it, and for preventing and checking recurrence of cancers. So it is winning favour with the patients. Especially, it has significant curative effect on gastric cancer, and is known to have remarkable protective function against myeloid inhibitive action of other medicines. Besites, it revittalizes cardiac muscular cells from myocardial ischemia due to the lack of blood in cardiac muscular for a long time, and is effective in removing cardiac rhytm disorder.

Now the researchers are makig proactive efforts to develop innovative anticancer drugs with traditional medicinal materials of Korea.
