FAQ

Would Biobran be beneficial for X, Y or Z disease?

Generally, anyone with a disease that involves a lowering of the immune system as a symptom is likely to receive some benefit from Biobran supplementation, although once again it should be stressed that Biobran is NOT a treatment in itself, but a useful supplement to take alongside treatment. Genera

How much Biobran MGN-3 should I take?

As a general rule, higher doses of Biobran tend to get to the optimum immune level or normalization point much more quickly than lower dosages and so are recommended for more serious conditions where speed of recovery is important.   Dosages vary from 500mg a day (half a sachet or 2 tablets) right

Critics

This is an absolute con!

This was the knee-jerk response of an oncologist at a leading UK cancer hospital to a patient who asked him to give a professional opinion on Biobran MGN-3. The oncologist in question examined none of the research and stated that he was going to complain to immunologist Professor Ghoneum. Strangely,

My oncologist, who is very knowledgeable and senior in his specialist area, does not see how this could work.

Oncologists are doctors who specialize in cancer treatment. They are not immunologists – scientists who study the immune system. We were recently in contact with a highly credentialed and experienced immunologist who explained to us how little many oncologists know about immunology, and how it gener

Immune system strength and more specifically NK-cell activity is not particularly relevant to cancer survival.

This is contradicted by clinical research, which clearly shows that a strong immune system does have impact on cancer survival. Anyone who takes this view is ignorant of the research out there. Few other beliefs have done more damage to public health than this one, and it has given rise to orthodox

Biobran MGN-3 is ridiculously expensive and is a way for unethical companies to fleece desperate people.

Biobran is expensive. It is made by a pharmaceutical company in Japan using state-of-the-art equipment and it has and continues to be put through many expensive tests and trials, most of which have to be ultimately paid for by the consumer. For the same reasons, drugs produced by the pharmaceutical

Companies promoting this product state that research has shown that people taking [Biobran] MGN-3 have an increased number of natural killer (NK) cells in their blood. This does not prove it can stop a cancer growing.

This is a quote on Biobran MGN-3 from the leading UK cancer charity website Cancer Research UK. It clearly indicates that whoever wrote it did not look very carefully at the research: Biobran does increase the number of NK-cells, but more importantly, it increases their activity. The statement that

…the immune system can recognise cancer cells as abnormal and kill them. Unfortunately, this is not enough to get rid of cancer altogether.

This is another unscientific statement from the same cancer charity. Stating that "this is not enough to get rid of cancer altogether" applies to ANY treatment, orthodox or otherwise, that does not have a 100% success rate measured in terms of survival after a 5 year period, and it merely emphasizes

Only well designed clinical trials can find out if people with cancer who take MGN-3 do better than people who don't. We are not aware of any trials looking into this.

The phrase "well-designed" is deliberately nebulous here because the gold standard for any medical trial is for it to be double-blind placebo controlled, something that most chemotherapeutic agents have NOT been through because of ethical considerations (withholding treatment from a control group in

Vocabulary

Natural Killer Cells

Natural Killer Cells are type of white blood cell and a part of innate immune system. NK cells are specialized to kill certain types of target cells, especially host cells that have become infected with virus and host cells that have become cancerous.
