- Over the past ten years many
of our clients have requested the Cancer Profile© or CA Profile©.
American Metabolic Laboratories performs these tests in Hollywood,
FL. Hopefully, your results were all negative. If not, you may want
to revisit your report and get a thorough understanding of the meaning
of the various blood tests. If you did not understand them all, you
are not alone. Many scientists and doctors are not familiar with the
excellent, super sensitive tumor marker, PHI, for instance. Also,
most professionals have no knowledge of the use of the HCG test as
a broad-spectrum tumor marker. The name of the game is cancer prevention.
Particularly these two markers do have the ability and sensitivity
to detect biochemical changes leading to malignancy. Is it not wonderful
to know, perhaps as many as even ten years ahead of time, that there
may be a diagnosis somewhere in the horizon? Of course, it is not
the possibility of cancer that is good but the ability to see into
the future. Suppose you had an elevated marker, what should you do?
The answer is, not to search for a problem that may be years away,
but rather to change your lifestyle. Eliminate all known carcinogens
from your environment: undesirable foods, drinks, air, clothes, thoughts,
etc. "But doctor, you don't want me to quit drinking coffee?" The
question is what is important to you, a serious commitment to life
or the bad habits you mistakenly learned and cannot quit? Just as
one example, caffeine, in this instance, is a carcinogen, teratogen,
mutogen, cardiac stimulant, gastric stimulant, and a bone-depleting
factor. How many more years may you have, in spite of the warning
signal of elevated markers before a diagnosis is imminent. How much
easier it is to prevent rather than cure cancer. You, as a potential
client of American Metabolic Testing Laboratories, are a health-wise,
educated and self-aware person. You have an arsenal of disease preventing,
life extending tools and weapons. Use these blood tests to your best
advantage to prevent and cure disorders and diseases and live a healthy,
productive, happy, long life.
- Unlike the Cancer
Profile, today's advanced diagnostic technology
will detect what can be seen by X-rays, CT, MRI, mammogram, nuclear
scans, palpitation, naked or microscopic eye, etc. The Cancer
Profile measures molecular, cellular
activity, sometimes of a very few cells.
- The Profile is composed of
- HCG (IRMA)
: (intact HCG) human chorionic gonadotropic hormone, the pregnancy hormone
and "malignancy hormone," according to Dr. Schandl. This
test detects only intect HCG. That is, the alpha and beta intact subunits
only. This test does not measure the so called HCG-Like pituitary product.
Normal: less 1.0
- HCG (IMM)
: (intact, beta, nicked beta and beta core subunits of HCG) human
chorionic gonadotropic hormone, the pregnancy hormone and "malignancy
hormone," according to Dr. Schandl. Normal:
- HCG (IMM) Urine
some individuals may
produce a non-specific antibody that could show a reaction for HCG
but it is not HCG. Those exposed to animals frequently and some others
may produce this so called heterophile antibody and will test positive
for HCG. In a sense, the urine test is a cofirmatory determination
for the presence of the true HCG hormone. It is important to find
two of the three HCG tests positive in order to avoid misinterpretation.
- Our HCG-Urine may be the only one
in the world to quantify this hormone at a super low detection limit.
American Metabolic Laboratories' HCG test is immuno-specific for the
HCG hormone, unlike for instance the the Phillippine acetone extraction
method that will test for HCG, TSH, LH, and FSH all at the same time.
- Normal: less 1.1
: phosphohexoses isomerase enzyme that regulates anaerobic
metabolism; it is a neurokine, the autocrine motility/malignancy factor.
Today doctors may realise that cancer may spread much earlier than
they have thought before. However, most doctors are not yet familiar
with the PHI enzyme that may be the number one cause besides a possible
spread by surgery or sometimes even a biopsy needle.
- Normal: less
34, Gray Zone 35-40
: carcinoembryonic antigen, is a broad spectrum cancer antigen.
It was originally designed for monitoring colorectal cancers. In our
studies we found CEA to be an excellent breast cancer marker besides
being a nonspecific tumor marker for various malignancies.
- Normals are less 3.0
- GGTP : gamma-glutamyl
transpaptidase, a rather sensitive enzyme for monitoring the liver
and bile system, and kidneys and heart also. The liver is the chief
detoxifying organ and it is often affected in malignancies.
either by therapy or by malignant spread. GGTP is not a cancer marker,
- Normal: M
less 35, F less 29
: thyroid stimulating hormone that can detect high or low thyroid activity
(when it is low the thyroid is over active and when it is high the thyroid
is under active). This test is not a tumor marker test. Many cancer
patients and those who are developing cancer or receiving chemotherapy
A low thyroid activity will predispose to cancer.
- Normal: 0.40
: dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, the adrenal "anti-stress, pro-immunity,
longevity hormone," according to Dr. Schandl. Most cancer patients and
those, who are developing cancer have low DHEA blood levels.
The hormone level will naturally drop with age and this may be one reason
why the older we are the more likely we shall develope cancer.
- Normal: F 35
- 430, M 85 - 560 (see report chart !)
- The first five tests of the Profile are the actual
tumor markers or cancer markers. The other three are peripherally but
- HCG can be
elevated in an existing cancer, stress that is leading to cancer, or
in a developing cancer in some instances as many as 10-12 years before
an actual tumor could be detected by any method. Normal
levels are ‹1.0, i.e. less than 1.0. GRAY ZONE, i.e. a
less certainty zone may be 1.0-3.0. Results above 3.0 should be more
seriously considered. Remember, a positive or suggestive result does
not necessarily mean an existing cancer but perhaps a developing cancer.
It is known that it may take 10-12 years to develop cancer, so a HCG
elevation may indicate that an individual may be anywhere in this time
range and will have elevated tumor markers without a diagnosed disease.
These are the individuals who eventually may be diagnosed with cancer.
HCG-Urine quantitative test is
also available, however, it is not quite as sensitive as the blood serum.
- PHI can be
elevated in a developing cancer, existing cancer, or in an acute heart,
liver, muscle disease, or acute viral infection. Examples of these acute
conditions are myocardial infarction, hepatitis, aids, and traumatic
muscle injury. If an acute condition can be ruled out, cancer may be
the cause of the elevated result and the 10-12 year cancer developmental
period's time may be ticking. Normal
results are less than 34.0, however,
in an established malignancy a change even within the normal range could
be significant. PHI elevation is the cellular reson for malignant cancer
- The above two tests are well accomplished
as tumor markers in the scientific literature, yet, not approved for
test was originally developed to monitor colon and rectal cancers.
However, this test as most tumor markers, with perhaps the exception
of the PSA test for the prostate gland, are not organ or site specific.
are less 3.0.
- Approximately 40% of the normal population tested
gave "false" positive CA Profile©. According to national statistics
1 out of every 2.5 individuals will develop cancer in America, i.e.
40% of our entire population. May these 40% "false" positives be the
individuals in the process of developing cancer?
- (Recent pilot studies indicate
- It must be noted that, even though the CA Profile©
is the best of its kind, giving positive results in 87-93% established
cancer cases, a clinical pathologist does the final diagnosis on tissue/cell
biopsy analysis. The CA Profile© is an excellent adjunct. It is advisable
to perform the CA Profile© once each year. Excellent adjunct tests are
the PSA, CA 125, CA 15.3, CA 19.9, chemistry profile, CBC with differential,
estradiol, progesterone, free-testosterone, and the PTH test to detect
any degree of bone loss, homocysteine and hs-CRP for cardiac health,
cortisol for stress and IGF-1 for growth hormone.
test is an excellent marker for benign or malignant prostate problems.
When the results are over 3.0, it is a good practice to also perform
a Free-PSA test to distinguish between benign and malignant states.
In order to rule out malignancy, the Free-PSA should be more than 19.0%
if the total PSA is 3.0-4.0, and greater than 24% if the total PSA is
result is less than 2.8.
- CA 125
is a somewhat specific marker for ovarian cancer,
- CA 15.3 (27.29)
is a somewhat specific marker for breast cancer, (The above two
tests are only valuable if elevated.), and
- CA 19.9 is
a somewhat specific marker for gastric and pancreatic cancers.
