I was just there yesterday to pick some up. It is very simple.

The lab is called: Labiofam
Address: Ave. Independencia km. 16 1/2 Boyeros, Santiago de las Vegas
La Habana, Cuba
Tel: +53 683 3188/683 2151

There are three doctors and I met with Dr. Maria Bermudez Dominguez (Mondays and Tuesdays). You don’t need an appointment, but you need to bring the patient’s medical history in Spanish, including a summary of PSAs (for prostate cancer) or other blood reports that are indicative.

Be there at 8:15 am and wait in line until the lab opens at 09:00am. This way you will be one of the first to go in. You have to show your ID to the security guard at the entrance gate and they give you a special Labiofam pass to enter.

Once you are escorted into the lab, one of the doctors will see you. You can see whichever doctor, if it is the first time.

Before, you had to keep the medicine in a freezer to keep cool BUT now it is homeopathic and does not require to be kept cold. It is much easier to travel with it this way. The medicine they give you is for 4 months and then you must go back and get more. they monitor the progress of the patient with every medical history you bring with you. They may up the dose, if it is not responding as fast as it should. Normally, improvements are seen within 4-6 months.

It is free to pick up, but it is a good idea to bring a small gift. I gave the doctor a gift bag with lotions and body gels.

It is a good idea to have the taxi driver who brings you to the Lab to wait for you as it is difficult to get a taxi from the lab. It is a bit in an industrial area not too far from the airport. We paid 30CUC plus 10 CUC tip to have the driver wait for us and take us back to the city center. He waited a total of 45 min. plus a 20 min drive each way.

Questions, let me know.

Hi, I am from Mexico, and new to this forum.

Thanks for this valuable information, Pancho10. My father in law has prostatic cancer phase 4 and we are desperately trying to get escozul. We hope to get some soon. For that purpose, I’m beginning to make the necessary travel arrangements, so, how many days do you think I will have to stay in Havana?

Thanks in advance,

Hi,

You do not need to be in Havana for more than one day to pick up the medicine.

If you are flying from Cancun, there are two daily direct flights to Havana one at around 13.15 and the other at 20.40 on Mexicana.  There are some others on Cubana, but there are more restrictions on flying days.

We took the 20.40 on Mexicana and arrived at 22.30 to Havana (Monday). We went to the hotel, El Nacional, and then on Tuesday went to the lab - took the taxi at 07.45 approx. We waited in the line outside the lab until 09.00 and then were escorted to the Doctor at 09.15. We spoke to the doctor for about 10-15 min. - she went over the medical history and then explained how to take the medicine and that was it.

BTW: My dad has stage 4 prostate cancer as well. It is the second most common cancer treated with Escozul. The doctor was very convinced that my dad would see some results, more so pain relief within 4-5 months.

After we left the lab we took a tour of Havana on the Habanatours open-top bus. It costs 5CUC per person and you can catch the bus in Habana Vieja, the old part of town, or right near the Habana Libre hotel in Vedado, 5 min. walk from El Nacional Hotel.

We returned to Cancun on Wednesday morning, the 07.40 approx. flight on Mexicana.

All in all, a good short trip as we only went to pick up the medicine. We saw plenty of Havana on the taxi drives to the lab on the bus tour. We would like to see more of Cuba next time - like Varadero. We thought the med had to be kept cold or frozen, so that is why we cut our trip short.

Hope this helps. Good luck and let me know if you have any more questions.

Regards.

Thanks againg Pancho10. I am departing to Cuba from Mexico City, and one thing that keeps me worried is the customs inspection. I’ll appreciate if you can help me to solve this issues:

1. Is it required to get a special permit to introduce escozul to Mexico? My worst fear is to travel to Cuba to get escozul and to come back here only to find out that I will not be able to introduce it… Are the bottles labeled or something?

2. Do I have to email a copy of the clinical studies showing my father in law’s medical condition to the people in Labiofam? Someone over here is directing me with one Dr. Fernando Puentes, who supposedly works in Labiofam, to send a medical brief to his hotmail address.

3. From your experience I can see that you just went there, to Labiofam, waited in line a few minutes and got the escozul, right?

4. Finally, can you tell me a little more of your experience with escozul treating your loved one’s disease? Are you from the US?

Thanks a lot and God bless!

Hi,

Labiofam gives you a claim paper for customs which explains that it is a medicine. They didn’t ask for anything once entering Mexico. Though, we put the small bottles in our suitcase and check it in. But, next time, we will take it on as carry on as the two small bottles fit in the plastic bag you are supposed to use for liquids when traveling.

2. Do I have to email a copy of the clinical studies showing my father in law’s medical condition to the people in Labiofam? Someone over here is directing me with one Dr. Fernando Puentes, who supposedly works in Labiofam, to send a medical brief to his hotmail address.
No, we just took the medical history with us when we went to the clinic. She, the doctor, looked it over then. I did send them an email, but I never got a reply from them.


3. From your experience I can see that you just went there, to Labiofam, waited in line a few minutes and got the escozul, right?
Yes, we waited about 45 minutes and then were able to get the medicine.

4. Finally, can you tell me a little more of your experience with escozul treating your loved one’s disease? Are you from the US?
I don’t have much to say here yet as this is the first time my father is taking it. I have heard great things about it from many people that I have read through the Internet. I will keep you updated on my dad’s progress as he takes more. He has only been taking it for one week now. My parents live in Miami and me and my husband live in Norway. I am American and was in Miami before going to Cuba. Hence, the stop in Cancun smile


Good luck and let me know if you need more info.

Hi:

Just arrived from Cuba, and it was pretty much like Pancho10 said so I really don’t have much to add except that everyone should look for accomodation options near the lab for easy transportation (taxis are REALLY expensive). The “guaguas” (bus) are a much cheaper option. Remember to bring euros, not US dollars, as they are the preferred for currency change operations. AND, it is better if you send copies of medical studies PRIOR to your trip to Cuba (it is more convenient to arrange for an appointment, specially if you are going there for the first time).

If anybody has any doubt please let me know.

I hope so. And to the people who is already using escozul, please keep us informed on your evolution. Please give us hope… I will post updates as soon as we see health improvements in my father in law (prostate cancer, phase 4). Hopefully it will be soon. Thanks

Hi Pancho10: I just received four bottles of Escozul 40ml each from labiofam in Cuba
              Label says it shoud be taken one spoonfull before breakfast, lunch, dinner, and at night. Does this mean it need to be mixed with water? If yes, what dosage? Can you help? Thanks

Hi to all,
thank you very much for this info about the medication for cancer. Could any of you who have already bought it tell me the cost of the homeopathic medication? If it is possible in US dollars or in Euros. I live in Canada.
thanks again and good luck to all of you.

Hi Liz:

Because it is in experimental phase, Escozul is free or charge, but you have to get it directly at Labiofam laboratories in Havana, Cuba. So, in fact it’s not really free after all, because you have to travel there!

Best of luck

smile thank you very much Pipelo. Yes, Pancho said it was free to pick up, I missed that. (besides the cost of the travel as you said)

Are the doctors who see you there oncologists?

It was an article titled: ‘Exitoso farmaco en Cuba contra el cancer’ that appeared on a Mexican newspaper on February 5, 2009.
There the doctor Fabio Linares from Labiofam was interviewed.

Liz:

Ignoro la especialidad de los médicos en Labiofam, pero yo platiqué directamente con Niudis Cruz, y me pareció que sabía perfectamente de lo que hablaba, así que supongo que tiene la especialidad en oncología…

I dont know about the medical speciality of those doctors at Labiofam, but I talked directly to Niudis Cruz, and it seemed to me that she knew exactly what she was talking about.
