Peptides

Nature’s very own miracle molecules with myriad use cases, a broad range of powerful health benefits and incredibly safe.

Introduction

Peptides are emerging and promising new therapeutic agents that can be used to help with a wide range of conditions and improve overall health and performance.

Furthermore, the latest research is showing very encouraging results specifically for cancer treatment and helping patients to regain health and prevent recurrence.

Peptides are short-chain amino acids that are naturally occurring in the body. They are found in all living organisms and are involved in regulating many different biological functions.

Specific peptides can be used as a therapy to regulate or augment specific functions within the human body. For example, peptides can be used to boost human growth hormone, promote healing, enhance the immune system and target cancer cells.

There are many different peptides all with different corresponding functions. It’s a growing field of research and many have already been approved by the FDA. Peptides have been shown to be very safe and well-tolerated.

 

At Oasis we have a wide range of different peptides available for different specific use cases, but the most commonly used with cancer patients to support healing are listed below.

TA1 (Thymosin Alpha-1)

TA1 is naturally produced by the thymus gland. It is responsible for restoring immune function and helps regulate the immune response. This peptide also stimulates the immune system to seek out and destroy bacterial, fungal, viral infections, and, most importantly, kill cancer cells. It also improves tissue repair and healing and microcirculation.

In terms of its mechanism of action TA1 enhances T-cell, dendritic cell and antibody responses and modulates cytokine and chemokine production. It also enhances the natural killer system and stimulates an immune response by stimulating stem cells and augmenting the production of new immune cells.

Met5

Met5, also know as Opioid Growth Factor, regulates cell growth. Boosting levels of Met5 has been shown to produce oncostatic/oncosuppressive effects. In other words, Met5 can stop tumor cells from developing. It can also inhibit cancer cell division and therefore slow/stop cancer from spreading.

PNC27

PNC27 is a membrane active peptide that binds to certain proteins found in the cell membranes of solid tumors. When this peptide binds to the tumor cells it essentially punctures holes in the membranes of cancer cells and kills them. It has also been shown to be toxic to long-established and chemotherapy resistant tumor cells, making it a promising treatment for those that have been through chemotherapy and their cancer has become resistant.

GHK

GHK is well known for its cosmetic and anti-aging benefits such as tightening of loose skin and reversing sun damage. However, it has been shown to modulate gene expression relating to cancer. It has been shown to suppress RNA production in 70% of 54 genes commonly over-expressed in cancer patients. It can therefore function as a way of resetting gene activity. It can also re-activate apoptosis (programmed cell death), a system which is deactivated in cancer cells and required for the natural turnover and renewal of healthy cells.
