Apoptosis is the term used to describe the body’s process of genetically programmed, healthy cell death. The death of old, used up cells make way for new cells to keep our bodies (and our dogs’) healthy and strong.

Apoptosis-inducing substances such as curcumin create the basis of Apocaps CX Apoptogen Formula for Dogs, a new supplement that Dr. Demian Dressler has designed especially for dogs with cancer. For more information about Dr. Dressler’s comprehensive canine cancer care, please visit his Dog Cancer Vet website.

Artemisinin or Qinghaosu (pronounced: Ching-hao-su) is an extract from the plant Artemisia Annua (Sweet Wormwood) or Qinghao (pronounced: Ching-hao). Scientific research has shown Artemisinin to be particularly beneficial in balancing the microbiology of the GI tract.

artemisininDoctors researching Artemisinin agree that it is safe, and can kill osteosarcoma cells in a petri dish. Whether or not the herb can work to kill cancer in a dog’s body or if the oral dose can be absorbed properly is still being studied. The extract Artemisinin has been used for several decades. It is recommended that any Artemisinin used is extracted from plants grown and harvested in accordance with GAP (Good Agricultural Practice) standards.

Good quality Artemisia annua contains 0.3-0.5% Artemisinin, so pure Artemisinin provides hundreds of times more of the active constituent Artemisinin than the whole herb itself. Combining with antioxidants or iron may theoretically decrease effectiveness.
