Some medical practitioners in the country have advocated the use of bio-therapy in the management of cancer.

 

They made the recommendation yesterday in Abuja at the Nigerian launch of Vidatox, a bio-therapeutic drug for cancer treatment. The drug, which is developed in Cuba, is said to have analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-tumor properties.

 

Speaking at the event, Dr Olufemi Ladeinde, a consultant at Rencare Integrated Healthcare Services, Lagos, noted that orthodox method of treating cancer, surgery, chematography, and radiation, were worst than the disease itself, hence, the need for new approach in the management of the disease.

 

Dr Ladeinde attested that Vidatox has improved the conditions of his patients.

 

In his goodwill message, Dr. N. C Nimzing, a homeopath and acupuncturist, noted that it was time medical practitioners opened up their minds to other approaches of cancer treatment.

 

“The homeopathic Vidatox 30CH preparation now offers the long awaited opportunity of a concerted effort in the treatment and management of cancer,” he said.

 

He added that this approach comes from the belief that cancer is a systemic and constitutional disease, rather than a local disease originating from the tumor itself.

 

Others speakers who shared their views were the Cuban Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Carlos Eleterio Trejo Sosa, the Director General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Dr Paul Orhii, the Chief Medical Director of the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, the President of the Cancer Society of Nigeria, and representatives of the Federal Ministry of Health.

 

The event was organized by Vet Pharma Development Company (VPDC) in Collaboration with the Cuban company, Labiofam.
