Anvirzel Case Reports and Oleander Studies


Anvirzel case reports and the oleander and related studies of MD Anderson researcher Dr. Robert Newman

Unknown to many people, a patented medicine version of oleander extract named Anvirzel has been used outside the United States for over 40 years.  The man who re-discovered the age old oleander remedy and developed Anvirzel is Doctor H Z Ozel.  Since the medicine he used is essentially the same as the home remedy version and the even better Sutherlandia OPC supplement (, I thought it might be educational to list links to some of his case histories:


Mesothelioma - HD

Adenocarcinoma (epithelial type malignant mesothelioma?) - US

Small cell anaplastic carcinoma in the lung -YG

Malignant lymphoma, lung cancer - MG

Prostate cancer with bone metastases - KE

Pancreas cancer with bone metastases - SO

Pancreas cancer - MH

Peritoneal carcinosis - HA

Inoperable stomach carcinoma with metastases -VO

Brain tumor - AS

Brain tumor - SD

Breast cancer (Ductal carcinoma) - SE

Antrum cancer - YT


And here is a partial list of studies on oleander, Anvirzel and cardiac glycosides:
