Question: Where can I get Vidatox in Cuba for my sister in China who has stage 4 ovarian cancer?
Answer: Vidatox is a drug produced from five protein peptides extracted from the venom of the blue scorpion (Rophalorus junceus), which is endemic to Cuba and which has analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties. The result of 15 years of research, by October last year Vidatox had been tested on more than 10,000 cancer patients, some 3,500 of them foreigners, with positive results both in improving quality of life and stopping tumour growth.
When Vidatox first began to be available in October last year, the Havana-based Labiofam facility was literally overrun by visitors wishing to obtain the drug. Whereas during the early months it was available from Labiofam itself, now it is registered and commercially available.
In a May 2011 telephone consultation with Labiofam, Cuba’s Biological Pharmaceutical Laboratories which developed Vidatox, they indicated that this medication can be obtained in two ways.
One is from the Pharma-Matrix company, which is the official representative in Albania of
Labiofam. Among the many reasons why Pharma-Matrix is playing this role is the fact that European legislation from 1995 allows for new homeopathic drugs – such as Vidatox – to be registered up to December 21, 2015. As well, Albanian legislation allows easy entry of Labiofam products, in particular its natural products for cancer treatment.
For full details about how to contact Pharma-Matrix, book a visit, and obtain Vidatox, consult their English-language website at www.pharmamatrix.net/en/ In May 2011, the cost of Vidatox from Pharma-Matrix was 118 Euros for a 30 mL bottle of sublingual drops.
The other way to obtain Vidatox is from international pharmacies located in Cuba. In phone calls to several international pharmacies in Havana (see list below), they confirmed the standard price of CUC 205 for a 30 mL pack of Vidatox. They also indicated that they presently have Vidatox in stock, and that there is no limit to the quantity that an individual can purchase.
Several of the international pharmacies located in Havana which market Vidatox are the following:
-International Pharmacy (Hotel Habana Libre), Telephone (537) 838-4593
-Farmacia Internacional (41 y 22, Miramar), Telephone (537) 204-4350
-International Pharmacies located in both Terminals 2 and 3 at the José Martí International Airport
