Nagalase Test

I have been trying very hard to find a lab where Nagalase test could be done in Australia. After calling just about every Australian ┬ápathology lab, managed to find one that does it at a reasonable cost. Melbourne Pathology make the test available through the Adelaide Children’s Hospital for only $110.

Nagalase or A-N-acetylgalactosaminidase is a glycoside hydrolase from bacteria and animals and promotes immune suppression by inactivating Macrophages. It has been reported that Nagalese accumulates in cancer patients as part of the tumour’s defence mechanism. Nagalase levels can be a better marker than CEA to monitor cancer activity according to some studies, though this is somewhat contravertial.

GCMAF can negate the effects of Nagalase by directly stimulating macrophages. I have ordered some GCMAF injections from and will give it a try. Should not do any harm, and if it helps, well that will be a bonus.

About Ren

I have been diagnosed with stage 4, metastatic colorectal cancer in October 2012, 3 days after my 44th birthday. There is no cure, but I am determined to go down the road less travelled to find one. I have setup this blog to document my journey and hopefully help others in the process. My view is that if there is a cure, it does not lie with traditional chemo, but with the immune system. Time will tell.
