(The Best Years in Life) Unknown to many people, a patented medicine version of oleander extract named Anvirzel has been used outside the United States for over 50 years. The man who re-discovered the age old oleander remedy and developed Anvirzel is Doctor Hussein Zima 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 as well as links to some of the many studies which have been conducted on oleander:


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

Brain tumor - EO
