Cancell™ like products, Cantron and
Protocel, are safe alternative cancer treatments which
have successfully treated people and animals for a wide
array of diseases for more than thirty years without
dangerous side effects. Not only is Protocel
anti-cancer, it is also strongly anti-viral and one of
the most powerful antioxidants ever tested.
On this web page you may see "Cancell"
used interchangeably with "Protocel" in places where
both Cantron and Protocel are discussed. Cantron and
Protocel are brand names for Cancell, are produced by
different companies, and have the same ingredients with
slightly different ratios of those ingredients.
Diseases, AIDS, Herpes...
Protocel has been effective against
viruses including AIDS, Herpes (see below), Chronic
Fatigue syndrome, lupus, endimetriosis, Crohn's disease,
fibromyalgia, almost all auto-immune disease, and has
some success treating: ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease),
Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Parkinson's,
Alzheimer's, Leukemia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and
Scleroderma. Information about these diseases and
Protocel will be added as I continue my research. I
don't have any more information on the above diseases
that don't have a link, please contact HOPE for more
The mechanism that that occurs when
Protocel is given to an AIDS patient is that Protocel
breaks down the cell that the virus has invaded. At that
point the virus has lost its protection again allowing
the body’s immune system to attack the virus. This
results in an initial increase in viral count when the
Protocel treatments start. There are not actually more
viruses; they are just more detectable due to the
removal of this protective layer. For more information
or to take Protocel for AIDS, go to the Protocel
Protocols for AIDS*.
Protocel has demonstrated strong
anti-viral abilities against most viruses including
colds and flu. It can be exceptionally helpful for
people who take a long time to get rid of these common
The book the Cancell Controversy by
Louise Trull reports that 15 cases of herpes were
treated with Cancell by physicians with positive cures
in every case within 3 to 6 days. However, extensive
follow ups were not performed. It is more likely that
Protocel simple reduces the length of episodes. However,
there is some chance that a long course of treatment,
about four months, may make it very difficult for the
virus to launch another episode or can greatly reduce
the frequency of episodes.
Disease and High Blood Pressure
Some people who have taken Protocel for
cancer also had high blood pressure and clogged
arteries. Since the cancer was more of a threat, these
people ignored their heart conditions to concentrate on
their cancer. After Protocel had corrected their cancer,
they were surprised to learn that their blood pressure
had gone back to normal. Some of these people had
angiograms performed and found that the plaque in their
arteries had been dissolved. For this reason the
Protocel manufacturers recently (March 2003) performed
tests on Protocel to determine its antioxidant
abilities. The results of the tests indicated that
Protocel is the most powerful antioxidant available. It
is many times more powerful than any other antioxidant.
For this reason Protocel is a life saver for people with
high blood pressure because the current high blood
pressure medication has a terrible list of side affects.
The first Cancell-like formula was called
Entelev and was developed by a chemist, James Sheridan
of Rosell, Michigan. Currently, the brand names Cantron
and Protocel are used for Cancell. Although Sheridan was
a researcher at the Michigan Cancer Center, Sheridan was
not a medical doctor. This may be one of the reasons the
medical profession has offered so much resistance to
Cancell. There is even a name for this resistance:
professorial blockade. Another reason for this
resistance may be due to the fact that Cancell is not
only anticancer it is also antiviral. It is also the
most complete and the strongest antioxidant ever tested.
Since his original formula the following names have been
used: Sheridan's Formula, Jim's Juice, Crocinic Acid,
JS-114, JS-101, 126-F, Entelev, Cancell, Cantron, and
Sheridan theorized the possibility of chemically
controlling the energy needed by the cells of our body
to cause energy-low cancer cells to revert to a state
where the body can eliminate them as foreign matter. The
theory postulates that cancer cells are too low in
energy to proceed with their normal development. Cancer
cells stop their development just short of
differentiating into a normal liver, lung, brain ...
cell. Sheridan proposed to push cancer cells backward in
their development instead of try to encourage them to
differentiate as many cancer treatments attempt.
Sheridan believed he had found a method
of controlling the energy available to cells in the
early 1930s after witnessing a chemical reaction called
rhythmic banding in an analytical chemistry laboratory
at Carnegie Tech and reading the Debye Theory, published
in 1927 which explores the effects of changing the
dielectric constant on reactions of positive and
negative ions suggested the means to accomplish this
About 1950, Sheridan was invited to join
the staff of the Detroit Institute of Cancer Research.
There he performed the required chemical work on the
project and the institute experts performed the animal
tests. In late 1953, the institute director concluded
that Entelev was ready for a clinical program. A
committee was formed consisting of the Dean of Medicine
at Wayne University, three oncologists from area
hospitals, and the director. The committee spent several
days interviewing the experts who were running the
tests, reviewed the test results and concluded that the
material was ready for a clinical program. The director
of the Detroit Institute of Cancer Research informed the
American Cancer Society about the product. A meeting was
requested to take place in New York City. The director
and the Dean attended the meeting. They returned and
reported that the American Cancer Society did not
approve the test because Mr. Sheridan did not prove that
he owned the idea. Sheridan was later fired.
Since Sheridan had worked on his idea for
many years, it would be fairly easy to show that the
idea was his, but Sheridan was fired. Why he was fired
is not a mystery if you know how diabolical the
pharmaceutical companies are. During the Nuremberg war
crimes trials, executives of German pharmaceutical
companies were the only civilians who received prison
sentences. The descendent companies now operate world
wide and receive great respect from the uninformed. An
example of such a company is none other than Bayer the
aspirin giant that many people think is an American
company. These pharmaceutical companies control medical
research by giving or withholding grants for research.
Moss's book The Cancer Industry is full of such dirty
Ready for People
Based on the animal testing, Sheridan
knew that Entelev was non-toxic and started giving it to
friends who were at the “end of the line.” Word spread
of the effects it had on these people and Sheridan
started receiving requests from all over the country.
Unable to refuse to give people a chance for life, he
began distributing it for free to anyone who asked for
it. The FDA eventually placed an illegal injunction
against the distribution of Entelev. When Sheridan
attempted to appeal the original court decision, the
court claimed to have lost the transcript. A transcript
must accompany any appeal application. Appeal
application must be filed within 60 days of the original
court decision. The transcript was located just after
the 60 days.
Ed Sopcak Joins the Effort
Around 1984, a cancer sufferer (who
wishes to remain nameless) was given the prognosis of
six weeks to live due to advanced cancer. Instead of
dying on schedule, he acquired a bottle of Entelev and
in six weeks he was declared cancer-free. Unfortunately,
Sheridan had recently quit distributing Entelev in
response to a court injunction. This nameless man had
written six technical books, and was competent to
understand the formulation so Sheridan gave it to him,
but he didn’t have the equipment for production. Mr.
Nameless contacted a friend, Ed Sopcak who is a
metallurgist. Sopcak agreed to make it and eventually
started working with Sheridan and distributing it for
free between 1984 and 1992.
With their own money Sheridan and Sopcak
continued to seek FDA approval. The FDA required
toxicity testing. Sheridan and Sopcak decided to pay for
this testing because they couldn’t get help from the
drug company influenced cancer agencies. Sheridan found
what he considered the best laboratory in the country in
New Mexico. The cost of the toxicity test was originally
$5,000. After they got the material, they called
Sheridan and said it would cost $7,000. Sheridan and
Sopcak still agreed. The cost went to $15,000. Still
Sheridan and Sopcak agreed. Then the lab called and said
for some reason or other they were unable to do it.
Sheridan drove to the lab and said he would like to
have a toxicity test run. They said they could have it
done within a week. After hearing that the material was
Entelev, everything changed. They absolutely couldn't
get around to doing it. This treatment continued for
years. Some people would say that the $700 billion a
year Chemo industry has something to do with this
blockade. Eventually, Sheridan retired and no longer
pursues the battle.
Although the ratio of ingredients of
Cancell-like products has changed slightly over the
years, the ingredients listed on the labels of Cantron
and Protocel are: tetrahydroxyquinone, rhodizonic acid,
sodium, potassium, croconic acid, catechol (or
pyrocatechol), triquinoyl, leuconic acid, inositol, and
copper. The Protocel label also lists "mineral and trace
elements" which are at a level of no consequence.
Formulation Change / Name Confusion / Reputation
Ed Sopcak worked with James Sheridan, the
developer, by distributing Entelev (the original name
for Cancell) under the name Cancell between 1984 and
1992. Sopcak's efforts and connections greatly increased
public awareness of Cancell. For this reason the term
Cancell is used most often when referring to Entelev.
Around 1992 Sopcak changed the formulation completely.
Sopcak’s new formula resembled a homeopathic product. He
stated that it was distilled water “programmed
vibrationally.” At this point Sopcak should
have changed the name of the product he was
manufacturing, but he continued to call it Cancell
because he felt that both formulas worked the same way
even though they were chemically as different as night
and day. Entelev was a dark liquid. Sopcak's new formula
was completely clear and contained none of the chemicals
that Sheridan had specified. Eventually, Sopcak did
change the name of his formula to Quantrol, but the
damage to Cancell's reputation continued. This web page
uses the term Cancell to refer to the dark formula.
Not long after the formulation change,
Quantrol/Cancell received a lot of media attention.
Sopcak promoted Quantrol on TV and in articles often
referring to it as Cancell and created tremendous
confusion. Suddenly, after distributing Cancell for
eight years Sopcak was taken to court by the FDA
creating more publicity for his "water" and making
Cancell seem like a joke. With the wrong formula
receiving this negative attention, Cancell's reputation
was dealt a devastating blow.
Stopped but Distribution Continues
The courts stopped Sopcak from
distributing either formula, but during that time a
company in Florida started producing Entelev based on a
formula forwarded by an intermediary. In 1984 Medical
Research Products obtained the Entelev formula and
started producing it under the name Cantron. In the
spring of 2000 a Canadian company started working with
the Sheridan family and called their product Protocel.
So now there are two manufacturers. Both charge about
the same price. Both products have the same ingredients
which are the same as Entelev although there is a slight
difference in the quantity of the ingredients.
The developer, James Sheridan felt that
his formula was 50% effective (higher for brain tumors).
The effectiveness was determined to be a bit lower for
children. This seems to be related to the higher level
of growth common in the cells of children.
The webmaster, Paul Winter documented
case histories for four years. You can read case
histories and a summary or the findings for the last
year. This is when Protocel and Cantron were both
available. Although this study is crude, the results
agree with Sheridan's 50% number. Some supporters of
Cancell claim 80% to 90% effectiveness. However, no
documentation is available to support these numbers.
Respond Poorly to Protocel
Protocel seems to be effect against all
types of cancer and benign tumors; however, it does not
perform well against the following:
Different people respond at different
speeds to Protocel. Some cancer sufferers notice
response in a week and virus symptoms can go away in one
day. However, it can take as much as three months or
more for some cancer sufferers to notice improvement
especially for Lymphomas. The lymph system has a very
slow circulation rate. This slows down the action of
Protocel. In the words of James Sheridan, "it takes time
to work... 7 to 9 weeks is typical and some cases take
up to 3 months or more to see a response."
One of the reasons for Protocel's
apparent slow action is due to the time it takes a
person's system to convert the tumors to waste matter
and longer to recover from the damage the tumor
produced. Often the waste matter around a tumor is
misread by a doctor as tumor growth and a person stops
taking Protocel before it is finished working. This
tragedy is difficult to prevent.
How to tell
if Protocel is working
When malignant cells go past the
primitive state, they lyse or self-digest. When the
malignant cells, self-digest, they change from cancer to
waste material, composed of two amino acids that have
the appearance of raw egg whites, which are mostly
excreted through normal body waste disposal or in the
case of lung cancer, this material is coughed up.
Tumor markers can rise for three to four
months after taking Protocel. This does not mean that
Protocel is not working.
No studies on Protocel have been
published in standard scientific journals, and no
clinical trials (research studies with people) of
Protocel have been done.
Conclusiveness of Papers
No scientific peer reviewed papers have
been written on Protocel. However, the antioxidant test
performed in 2003 verified the tremendous antioxidant
ability of Protocel. The results of two independent
laboratories are in: Protocel is by far the most
powerful antioxidants thus far test. It is:
Over 25 times more powerful than the
previous best antioxidant¨ against peroxyl radicals.
Over 45 times more powerful than the previous¨ best antioxidant against hydroxyl radicals.
These are the two most destructive and
difficult to defeat free radicals. This makes Protocel
(and Cantron) the only antioxidant that eliminates both
of the most dangerous free radicals. Protocel also
blocked the formation of all superoxide radicals in the
Protocel can be taken without any
additional supplements and still be effective. However,
the addition of the following supplements are
recommended by one or other of the manufacturers to
support the action of Protocel:
Ease of Use
and Protocols (Dosage)
Protocel is not all that easy to use for
Protocel is a liquid and must be
dispensed immediately. Many people do
not get a good dose of Protocel because it settles
You must take a dose every four
hours, consistently (you can skip one dose when
Some people cannot stand the taste,
although I think it tastes OK.
There are supplements and treatments
that cannot be taken while taking Protocel.
People who change their eating habits
greatly increase the effectiveness of the supplements
Some people want to continue Protocel
after remission. I know of one person who continues to
take Protocel five years after his remission; no side
effects have been observed. However, if you reduce the
dosage size or schedule of Cantron.
as a tumor treatment. However, Protocel is a most
powerful antioxidant and can be taken once or twice a
day for its antioxidant benefit. Antioxidants are well
recognized cancer fighters.
As Protocel works and tumors start to
break down, they can appear to get larger. CAT scans
sometimes can't distinguish between growing tumors and
tumors that are breaking down, but a PET scan can verify
the breakdown of tumors.
Protocel does not seem to have any side
effect except that initially a person may feel tired. On
average tiredness lasts 2 1/2 weeks, but some patients
report that it lasts longer. This is an indication that
Protocel is working. Some people who are having
digestion problems may not be able to keep Protocel
down. Using simple food combining can reduce digestion
problems; do not eat starch with meat, and do not eat
fruit with other foods. Another solution is to switch to
rectal administration which is explained with the other
One woman mistakenly drank an entire
bottle of Protocel and only experienced diarrhea the
next day. She discovered her mistake and started taking
the correct dosage. She is now cured of cancer.
Due to the many changes a woman’s body
goes through during pregnancy, Protocel is not
recommended during pregnancy just to be on the safe
Although Sheridan was unable to get a lab
to perform a toxicity test on Entelev, one interested
group succeeded in getting the test performed by
changing the name. This group fears reprisals from the
FDA and have requested that I not include the cover-name
they used and the date of the test. However, I received
permission to publish the results of the test.
Toxicity tests establish the level of a
compound at which half the test mice die. The level is
expressed in terms of milligrams per kilogram of the
animal’s body weight. For example, the toxicity of
aspirin is 390mg/kilo; if each mouse weighed a kilogram
half of them would die if they were each given 390 mg.
The test procedure for new compounds is to slowly
increase the level of the compound until half the mice
The test lab started the test in the
normal way (see above paragraph) and eventually tested
levels of hundreds of milligrams per kilo of body weight
and no mice died. When the lab got to a level of
5000mg/kilo of body weight they stopped the gradual
increments because no mice had yet died. They jumped the
level to 11,000 mg per kilo of body weight and finally
70% of the mice died. This level is the equivalent of a
150 pound man taking 700, 1000 mg (“horse”) pills.
Protocel is a delicate treatment whose
effect can be stopped by a number of substances. Before
continuing with the ordering information, decide if you
are willing to avoid taking all of the substances listed
below that interfere with Protocel.
Reducing your intake of refined sugar had
been known to aid the effects of Protocel. Fructose,
honey, and 100% maple syrup are much better.
Do not take
supplements that contain the vitamins or supplements
vitamin C is the number one reason that Protocel
fails to work)
Sulfhydrazly antioxidants which includes:
Cesium Chloride and Potassium may cause a
problem, but more study is needed before these are
definite substances to avoid.
If you are currently taking supplements
that contain any of the above, you must decide if you
are willing to stop taking them in order to use Protocel
most effectively. Naturally occurring quantities in food
has not caused any problems. Do not use any information

Protocel to Reduce Side Effects
Although chemo prevents Protocel from
working, taking Protocel while taking chemo reduces the
side effects of chemo, but does not reduce the
effectiveness of chemo. For months after chemo
treatments, it may be difficult for Protocel to work.
Protocel does start right away, but produces results
more slowly after taking chemo. Even fairly healthy
people can take many months to recover from chemo.
Protocel has been widely available in one
formulation or another since the early 1980s.
Depending upon the size ordered, Protocel
costs about $75 a month.
PSA Numbers for Prostate Cancer
PAS numbers can escalate for a month or
more while taking Protocel. This actually means that
Protocel is working.
There are two types of Protocel,
23 and 50. Analysis of the two formulas indicates that
the following lists represent the better of the two
formulas to start with.
