For the first time in Cuba, scientists are using a natural medicine derived from scorpion toxin for the treatment of cancer.

The initiative is part of a national project led by the Pharmaceutical Biological Labs (Labiofam) that seeks to demonstrate the effect of the red scorpion’s poison against tumors. The study is the only one being made in the world and it has shown positive results so far, according to Fabio Linares, head of the Homeopathy Department in the province.

Linares told ACN that the permission to produce the medicine and to apply it on a small group of patients was requested last year, 2007. He said the effectiveness of the homeopathic technique lies in the minimum percentage of the active ingredient used in the preparation. More than 20,000 bottles can be prepared with only one drop, said the expert.

In the patients treated with the medicine, the inflammation and pain produced by the action of cancer cells was reduced which in turn improved the quality of life of those cases.

The results achieved so far are very similar to those obtained with the use of dissolved poison, which demands a greater amount of raw material for its production.

For more than three years, a team of doctors and health technicians from Cienfuegos, located more than 260 km east of Havana, have been working on anti-carcinogenic remedies based on studies by Cuban biologist Misael Bordier Chibas on scorpion toxins.

We have been following the testing and use of escozul which is the cancer treatment made from the BLUE scorpion not the RED scorpion as mentioned in this article so I’m not sure if the article meant to say blue scorpion (escorpion azul = escozul) of if they are now working with the red scorpion. We have a Cuba forum on escozul here and many articles on escozul here.

    Are you sure that this article is legitimate? In addition to the “escorpion azul = escozul” mix-up, homeopathy is an utterly unscientific fraud. I’m also wary that seemingly very little news is coming out with regard to escozul in recent years.

    Can someone please share with me if Escozul works on colorectal cancer that metastases to the liver. My sister tumor has shrunk in the rectum but the liver tumor we are not seeing result. Please share your experience with escozul, the reports shows the blue venom is stronger than the red. Also is it true that some are alternative than real scorpion venom.
    Is it available into USA or just in Cuba.
    Please I am in desperate need for your help.

    Thank you!
