First whitish, then cervical cancer 2 years later. That’s Suheni’s experience. That Woman, 40-year-old as teacher was unsteady. ‘I’m confused and desperate. How can I attacked by cancer, ‘said Suheni.

Cervical cancer stage II B. That’s verdict of physician from Dr. Sardjito Hospital, Yogyakarta. Diagnosis of doctors in mid-August 2006 was like a big hammer hitting Suheni’s head. That Cancer cells came with whites and pain cues on the lower abdomen as the symptoms. Two years since 2004, she suffered albus fluor or whites. To tame the malignant cells that attacked the uterus, Suheni had to undergo chemotherapy 6 times and radiation 25 times. Beside for killing cancer cells, therapeutic effects caused Suheni tired, lethargic, decreased appetite, and often sleepy. No wonder, if she was not eager to teach in school.

After getting therapy, the cancer cells were dormant for a while. However, 10 months ago the cancer cells returned more vicious. Suheni had to undergo more therapy. Although 6 times having chemotherapy, cancerous cells still entrenched in the cervix. Where, she must pay 7 million per chemotherapy.

Patients are usually unaware that cancer attacking the cervix. Because cancer cells need long time to develop, 10-20 years old. The whites that Suffered had reddish brown color and smell. Cervical cancer patients, usually have vaginal bleeding. Patients also feel pain in lower abdomen or pelvic cramps, and pain during pissing, with watery white liquid.

According to Globocan research, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), in Indonesian in 2002 found 41 cases and 20 deaths per day because of cervical cancer. That Malignant cancer is caused by infection of human papillomavirus (HPV) through sexual contact. Also the smoking habit in women is also a trigger of cervical cancer. With chemotherapy, cervical cancer appears again like that occurred in Suheni. Therefore she followed her relative’s advice to consume rodent tuber extract.

In November 2008, Suheni had been consuming rodent tuber and pearls grass extracts each 2 capsules 3 times daily. ‘My body feels fit,’ she said. Suheni’s Persistence was not in vain because 4 months after consuming rodent tuber and pearls grass regularly, she recovered. Final laboratory examination on February 2009 showed that cancer cells lost its grip in her cervix. Now she still taking the herbs 1 capsule a day. ‘To keep cervical cancer not recur again,’ she said.

Suheni recovery from cancer is not a coincidence. Rodent tuber is known as anticancer. Rubiyantoro, herbalist from Kampoeng Herbal, Bekasi, West Java, said that rodent tuber help fight cancer. The Plant also helps patients avoiding cancer after surgery. Other function is eliminating the adverse effects of chemotherapy like hair loss. Those who undergo chemotherapy and regularly consume rodent tuber proved their appetite back, uneasy hair falling, and decreasing pain in the body.

According to Wahyu Suprapto, a lecturer in the Faculty of Medicine, University of Airlangga, anticancer properties of rodent tuber is because of its ability to block the development of cancer cells and tumors. That’s in line with research-Sheen Choon Lai, a researcher from the Center for Drug Research, University Sains Malaysia. The result proved rodent tuber Typhonium flagelliforme could inhibit cancer cell growth and induce apoptosis.

According to Choon IC50-concentration values of rodent tuber that causes death 50% of the population tested cell-hexane and dichloromethane (DCM) are respectively 53.89 µg / ml and 15.43 µg / ml. That means only with a dose of 53.89 mg / ml and 15.43 mg / ml of hexane and DCM 50% of rodent tuber could inhibit cancer cell growth.

In addition, Peni Indrayudha’s research, from the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Muhammadiyah Surakarta, Central Java, proved the efficacy of rodent tuber inhibited the progression of cancer cells because rodent tuber contains Ribosome Inactivating Proteins (rips). Rips is a toxic protein that can inhibit protein synthesis. That’s because the rips can cut RNA and supercoiled double-stranded DNA to nick-loop quasi-circular and linear. When protein synthesis inhibited, cancer cells growth also inhibited. Peni incubate the plasmid DNA with 3 μl leaf extract Typhonium flagelliforme. The concentration of protein contained in the extract, varied 10 mg / ml, 20 mg / ml, 30 mg / ml, 40 mg / ml, and 50 mg / ml. The result in protein concentration 10 mg / ml plasmid DNA truncated became nick circular. Meanwhile, at a concentration of 20-50 mg / ml DNA was cut into a linear form. With anticancer properties of rodent tuber that can conquer cancer, Suheni suffered.
