1- hCG and Breast Cancer Prevention

Recent medical studies suggest that human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (hCG) may help lower women's risk for breast cancer. Research has shown that a full-term pregnancy by age 20 cuts woman's breast cancer risk by half, possibly by allowing breast cells to reach full maturity so they can better resist carcinogenic changes.


It is already known that pregnancy by the age of 20 cuts a woman's future risk of breast cancer. US scientists at the Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, have shown this protection is related to hCG, which is produced by the placenta in pregnancy.

First full-term pregnancies occurring early in life provide the mother a substantial lifetime protection from breast cancer. Until now the reasons for such protection were unknown, but many experimental observations in rodents suggest that the prolonged elevation in specific circulating hormones in pregnancy play a fundamental role in mammary proliferation and differentiation and reduce the effects of carcinogenic insults.


These study confirmed that the protection conferred was specific to the hormone hCG and were note related to other female hormones. In the future, it could be possible to offer women who do not wish to become pregnant, the same hCG protective action provided by pregnancy.

2- hCG and Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is disease characterized by a decrease in bone mass and bone density and an increased risk and/or incidence of fractures. Bones become extremely porous and are subject to fracture and slow healing.

It occurs especially in women following menopause and often leads, among other complications, to spine bending due to vertebral collapse.

Postmenopausal women and hypogonadic subjects are more prone to this condition, due to lower blood levels of hormones such as progesterone and hCG. Medical studies concluded that continuous hormone replacement therapy with hCG improves bone density parameters.

3- hCG and Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a disease characterized by increased intraocular pressure resulting in damage to the optic nerve and retinal nerve fibers. It is one of the most common causes of preventable vision loss.

Presently, there's no available treatment, although medication or surgery can slow or prevent further vision loss.

Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (hCG) provides an effective solution to this problem. Recent investigations demostrated that intravitreal injection of purified hCG decreased intraocular pressure (IOP) in rabbits. The onset of this effect was later than 10 hr following the injection and it lasted for more than 24 hrs.

4- Atherosclerosis and blood circulation

Obesity as a main risk factor in the genesisof atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a common condition that affects a large group of obese patients. On the other hand, this disease is a common condition affecting a large group of the general population.

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is effective both for obesity treatment and atherosclerosis. In the latter, hCG decreases the proliferation of the inner layer of blood vessels and provides a protective effect against this condition.

hCG also improves arteriolocapillary flow and provides a corrective effect on dyslipidaemia. Chorionic gonadotrophin administration can be successfully associated in consecutive courses with vasoactive drugs and anticoagulants to obtain long-term success, even in cases treated for ten years.

In addition, recent investigations proved that hCG treated patients normalised their blood lipid values and improved or decreased subjective and objective symptoms of atherosclerosis.

Results obtained by the Oral hCG Research Clinic in the treatment of obesity with chorionic gonadotropin and a 500 calorie standard diet are displayed. These were highly satisfactory with respect to weight loss, tolerance, and marked improvement (or even normalisation) of blood lipid values, which were initially pathological in many cases.
