Beljanski’s RNA Fragments

RealBuild Cones 2bwDr. Beljanski was one of the first biologists to study small RNA fragments, which plays an important role in the growth of a cell. Some RNA fragments stimulate the formation of white blood cells and platelets. Mirko Beljanski discovered that they not only help maintain normal white blood cell and platelet levels which may decrease to dangerously low levels in a number of situations, including radiation therapy and chemotherapy, but they also preserve normal proportions among the various kinds of white blood cells, notably those that fight infections. These RNA fragments promote the DNA of healthy cells; never that of cancer cells.

What Beljanski discovered concerning RNA could make chemotherapy or radiotherapy patients rejoice, for they will no longer need to experience its extensive complications or other adverse side effects of these treatments ! That alone makes Beljanski’s discoveries good candidates to be included in the integrative treatments used in forward-thinking cancer hospitals around the world.

Early Research on RNA

Dr. Mirko Beljanski spent the bulk of his professional life devoted not to cancerous DNA but to uncovering the mysteries of RNA. The thirty years he spent at the Pasteur Institute, from 1948 to 1978, were dedicated to some of the earliest discoveries in modern research on RNA and its relationship to DNA.

His interest in RNA was at direct odds with the Pasteur Institute’s director Jacques Monod, PhD. Dr. Monod declared that everyone under his employ was to work on the “central dogma” of DNA and accept RNA simply as its “messenger boy.”(1) Beljanski ignored his boss and made some of the most important discoveries of his career about RNA, including that the role of RNA is as fundamental as DNA in terms of cell duplication and protein synthesis. Proteins are essential for ones total physiology because protein is required, basically, for everything the structure, function, and regulation of the body’s cells, tissues, and organs. Protein synthesis, then, is vital for life to continue.

Beljanski is also arguably the first to have discovered the enzyme “reverse transcriptase”— so-named because it reverses the usual transcription of DNA into RNA. In order for genetic information to be passed from DNA to the rest of the cell and hence to the body as a whole, it has to be transferred from DNA into RNA. Reverse transcription means that RNA is actually transferring genetic information into DNA—the reverse of the usual process. Reverse transcription has become important to all of humanity because of the HIV virus that works exactly on that principle. It is a very complex process, but the simple effect of it is that reverse transcription enables a virus to be inserted into the host’s DNA and replicated by the host and that’s why HIV seems impossible to cure or even treat with any good effect.(2)

In 1974, Dr. Beljanski was definitely the first to detect reverse transcriptase in bacteria. Dr. James Grutsch, clinical-trial consultant to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, who was a fledgling scientist at the Pasteur Institute during Beljanski’s term there, elegantly explains, “Dr. Beljanski was pioneering research into [RNA] and proving RNA indeed spoke back to DNA and gave it new information that changed its [DNA’s] blueprint.” Dr. Grutsch, nodding to the constant dissention between Beljanski and Monod, adds, “if [Beljanski] survived all those years under a director like Monod—who did not tolerate dummies—he must have been a darn good scientist. He had done all of the work to show us that we could actually save lives with RNA. ”(3)

Platelets are irregularly shaped, colorless bodies in the blood that help it form clots. When the platelet count is too low, excessive bleeding can occur. White blood cells, also called leukocytes, are the cells in the blood that help the body defend itself against both infectious disease and foreign materials. Red blood cells are a bit more resistant than white blood cell to chemo and radiation therapies, but there are some chemotherapy drugs that attack them as well. A low count of red blood cells means that your body isn’t getting enough oxygen, for the red blood cells are responsible for transporting that element from your lungs to the rest of your body.

It is a work-intensive process to procure RNA fragments, but Beljanski proved they could help bone marrow stem cells speed-up the production of both red and white blood cells, and platelets. Just as important, the bacterial RNA fragments did not act on the in vivo brain, lungs, or muscles, nor on leukemia cells. When injected into living animals, these fragments concentrated in the spleen and the bone marrow of the animal.

They found these fragments behave like selective promoters of bone marrow DNA. Bone marrow is where blood cells, both white and red, plus the platelets are manufactured.

Awareness of this activity of RNA fragments is tremendously important for patients undergoing chemotherapy. One of the unwanted side effects of taking cytotoxic chemicals to kill cancer is that it attacks the body’s healthy bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract, and the mouth. As a result of chemotherapy, mucous membranes in the mouth, for instance, split, crack, and cause burning but this can be alleviated or prevented altogether by use of RNA primers.(4)

Of particular interest in this discussion of integrative cancer therapies is the observation that RNA fragments from the purified strain of E. coli K-12 fight the imbalance that chemotherapeutic drugs, especially the antimitotics, induce in various cell lines that ordinarily produce white blood cells. In the presence of chemotherapeutic drugs, white cells with many nuclei (called polynuclear leucocytes), which are largely responsible for defense against infection, disappeared faster than the lymphocytes, the smaller white blood cells associated with the lymphatic system, thus creating an unwanted imbalance. RNA fragments repaired the imbalance induced by the toxic treatments, thus allowing the chemotherapy or radiotherapy to work more effectively. And it also proved to be selective, for it only stimulates the growth of healthy white blood cells and platelets.

Platelet Counts are Restored

Chemotherapy can also create a condition known as thrombocytopenia, where the blood platelet counts drop to dangerously low levels. The problem when blood-cell count and/or platelet counts drops too low is that the chemical or radiation treatments must be stopped because the patient could bleed to death during the course of treatment. But stopping treatment leaves the body vulnerable to the cancer cells resuming their constant replication—a condition no cancer patient wants.

While hospitals now regularly use synthetic medicines to help boost the production of white blood cells, until Beljanski’s research was rediscovered, there was nothing natural to help the blood-cell dilemma and nothing at all to help increase platelet counts, except suspending treatment and giving a blood transfusion.

Beljanski and his team found that RNA fragments promoted the quick production of new platelets to replace the platelets destroyed by chemotherapy. More importantly, the repeated doses of these fragments did not lead to tolerance or toxicity among cancer-affected rabbits treated with the antimitotics that are so toxic to healthy cells. Increased dosage was without incidence since the fragments were found to be destroyed within four hours by means the body’s powerful natural regulation. What’s more, they did not block the action of the antimitotics and could be applied with almost any cancer-fighting agent.

After uncovering the restorative effects of RNA fragments in vivo, Beljanski teamed up with several MDs who administered the fragments to people with cancer. The RNA fragments behaved the same in humans as they did in animals protecting patients receiving radiation therapy and intensive chemotherapy. This was a new beneficial discovery which worked well, provided that human patients received enough RNA primers early in their conventional treatments. Beljanski found the primers needed to be administrated before all of the cancer patient’s bone marrow stem cells are destroyed by chemotherapeutic poisons.(5,6,7,8,9,10)

The evidence is clear: RNA fragments, priming only healthy cells, are powerful healing agents. The other rare cases where RNA fragments show no effect against the side-effects of cancer are either when there is a lack of hemoglobin (in red blood cells which number less than 2.5 million) or when there is an excess of ribonuclease in the blood (ribonuclease is an important enzyme that breaks down RNA into smaller components in part to help the body get rid of excess RNA), which may be partially inhibited by the ingestion of magnesium. An excess in ferritin (a mineral component in which iron is linked to a protein) can also slow down RNA fragment activity.
