SANTO DOMINGO.- Cancer patients have a new drug to fight the terrible plight. It's called "Escozine," a revolutionary natural alternative medicine made from the venom of scorpions native to Dominican Republic.

The drug, approved by the Public Health Ministry, prevents the spread of cancer cells, says the scientist and biologist Grant Arthur Mikaelian, president of the international biopharmaceuticals company Medolife. "This product can shrink tumors or eliminate them entirely in some cases. And it produces an inhibition in the growth of cancer cells."

He said the patient can use the Escozine with chemotherapy, surgery, radiotherapy and hormone therapy, he adds and notes that it’s registered as a natural alternative medicine.

Mikaelian said the drug has been certified by the renowned Swiss laboratory Atheris, which has the world's largest database on biodiversity venoms.

The scientis said Escozine was initially extracted from the “blue Cuban scorpion," but Atheris analysis found that the Dominican scorpion venom has better characteristics. "The properties of both venoms are similar, but there’s an advantage of the Dominican species. It has smaller molecules and that facilitates the penetration of the cancer cell’s membrane,"

Mikaelian added that the Environment Ministry authorized the experiments with the scorpions.

They have been doing this in Cuba for years. Cancer patients travel to Cuba from all over the world to recive the scorpion venom treatment. Many people have had very good results from this treatment.

Now the Dominicans think that they have just found something new?

This smells like another scam, this Beverly Hills doctor seems fishy to me. The regulating authorities should investigate him further, and the reasons he is not in Cuba anymore, other than the dubious story furnished by him.

Here's the skinny,there is a cure for cancer,but the't. doesn't want anyone to have it.It's like this,negative press always wins out over good press,and war is the fuel that drives the U.S,gov't.They always complain about never having enough,but they(the't)keep printing more money,and lying to the public about what they don't have.But keep lining their pockets with green.The greed itself is the cancer...I won't say anything else,I'll let you figure the rest out !!!

You forgot to mention the human aspect behind the powers that may be.....

The press in the U.S is supose to report the news ALL THE NEWS not make or create the news, ballances and checks for a free nation ? as the old saying goes....those who control the news control the people.

Watch Fox news for a day....then decide, many never watch but are quick to judge, many can't handle the truth.
