Apocaps contain a wide range of carefully selected and refined natural ingredients which are claimed to act synergistically together to try and promote a process called apoptosis. Apoptosis is the natural cycling of cells within the body, whereby older cells die off and new ones take their place. Apocaps are formulated in the USA from safe, natural, human-grade ingredients and processed to make them much more bio-available than the original plant derivatives. . The ingredients of Apocaps include agents which increase the solubility and absorption of the required plant elements, boosting blood levels of the required products.

Cancer is not just one disease, it is in reality a name given to a large group of conditions with a common theme. This is sometimes described as "persistent, purposeless proliferation". Essentially cancer occurs when a type of body tissue grows to excess. The excessive tissue often fails to function in an appropriate way, and ultimately gets in the way of the other, normal body tissues, so interfering with their usual function. Cancer often forms as a tumour, which simply means a "lump", but the worst types of cancer often spread as multiple, tiny groups of cells through the body, without ever forming a discrete lump or tumour. Often a tumour forms first, then as the cancer becomes more aggressive, cells leave the original mass and set up in new sites around the body. There are many different types of cancer and many different causes. Many of the causes are not known - the cancer simply seems to appear spontaneously.
Apocaps are designed to try and promote the normal, appropriate death of cells when they have run their normal life span. Some forms of cancer appear to circumvent the normal, programmed cell death process ("apoptosis") and persist and replicate beyond what is useful. Apocaps have been associated with a longer lifespan after diagnosis of cancer than would normally be expected. Very importantly the quality of life has been scored more highly when compared with dogs not receiving Apocaps. These are subjective assessments and scientific proof of effect is difficult to establish. The cellular effects of the ingredients in Apocaps also might be able to lessen the unwanted side effects which usually result from chemotherapy and radiotherapy. This can mean that the cancer patient feels better while treatment is being given, as well as allowing more of the conventional treatments to be used without causing distress. Apocaps have been used by canine oncologists in the USA and around the world.
Apocaps can be used alone, or in combination with other forms of therapy. They are not now recommended to be given to dogs receiving steroids or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Generally speaking it is sensible to try and hit cancer with as many different things as possible. General nutrition can play a big part, so a change in diet is potentially helpful, as well as other lifestyle changes. Apocaps were developed by Dr. Demian Dressler, DVM, working in Hawaii. His book The Dog Cancer Survival Guide, contains lots more useful information on cancer therapy in dogs.
