Inzyme – Indications: oedema, inflammation
Inzyme consists chiefly of a mixture of Inzyme and chymopapain, proteolytic enzymes that hydrolyse polypeptides, amides, and esters, especially at bonds involving basic amino acids, or leucine or glycine, yielding peptides of lower molecular weight. It is used for the inflamation of soft tissue. Preparations of papain, alone or combined with antibacterial agents and/or other substances, have been taken by mouth for their supposed anti-inflammatory properties, and it has also been used as an ingredient of various mixtures claimed to aid digestion. Inzyme is widely used as a meat tenderiser and in the clarification of beverages. Malignant neoplasms. Papain has been included in proteolytic enzyme preparations used in oncology to reduce the adverse effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Although the number of clinical studies on which to judge efficacy is limited, a review1 of such studies suggested that systemic enzyme therapy might be beneficial. Clinical studies have used a preparation containing papain, trypsin, and chymotrypsin in a weight ratio of 5:2:2, and the beneficial effect seems to be based on its anti-inflammatory potential.

Papaya Leaf Tea: Oral Enzyme Therapy

Oral Enzyme Therapy combines various proteases (protein dissolving enzymes) in order to prevent disease, assist the body to fight various cancers, and lessen the negative effects of chemotherapy and radiation. The proteolytic enzymes papain and chymopapain are found naturally in the papaya leaf.

Memorial Sloan Cancer Center Site explains possible Mechanism of Action:
“PEs (proteolytic enzymes) are thought to exert immunomodulatory effects by causing increased release of reactive oxygen species by polymorphonuclear leukocytes (7) or by production of tumor necrosis factor-alpha and interleukins IL-6 and IL-1B that cause cytotoxic effects (1) (2). The antiangiogenic effects that papain exhibits in VEGF-activated human endothelial cells is concentration-dependent and likely due to interference with AKT, MEK1/2 and SAPK/JNK phosphorylation (15). Bromelain has been shown to lower the tumorigenic/metastatic capacities of sarcoma L-1 cells (3). It also inhibited glioma cell migration and invasion by affecting expression of integrins, necessary for cellular migration and invasion (5). In B16 murine melanoma models, PEs inhibited metastasis by reducing expression of CD44 and CD54 molecules (6).”

One example of a clinical trial that documented the lessened effect of radiation on cancer patients who took oral enzyme therapy is below:

Co-medication with hydrolytic enzymes in radiation therapy of uterine cervix: evidence of the reduction of acute side effects.

Dale PS1, Tamhankar CP, George D, Daftary GV.
Cancer Chemother Pharmacol. 2001 Jul;47 Suppl:S29-34.

“CONCLUSIONS: In patients with locally advanced cancer of the uterine cervix, oral enzyme therapy was found to be effective in significantly reducing radiation therapy-related side effects such as genitourinary symptoms, subcutaneous changes and reactions of the vaginal mucosa.”

In another clinical study, oral enzyme therapy was an effective complementary treatment for patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation:

“…CONCLUSION: Complementary treatment of colorectal cancer patients with OE improves their quality of life by reducing both the signs and symptoms of the disease and the adverse reactions associated with adjuvant antineoplastic therapies. This epidemiological retrolective cohort analysis provides evidence that patients may also benefit by a prolongation of survival time. OE were generally well tolerated.”

Papaya Leaf Tea as a natural oral enzyme therapy solution may contain a more complete set of necessary compounds to allow for absorption by the body. This theory is presented in part in the blog below:

Papaya Leaf Tea to Relieve Side-Effects From Chemotherapy


On the world renowned cancer clinic Memorial Sloan Kettering site:

“Clinical Summary:
Papaya tree is commonly found in tropical areas around the world. The fruits are consumed as food and as medicine; dried and powdered stem and leaves are used to prepare medicinal teas against infections and to improve digestion. Papaya leaves and their extracts are also marketed as dietary supplements to enhance the immune system, to improve platelet function, and to prevent chemotherapy-related adverse effects.
Papaya leaves exhibit anti-tumor, immunomodulatory (1), and antioxidant(9) effects in vitro.
The leaf extracts contain antibacterial compounds that inhibit the growth of a wide variety of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria (4).
In mice, a powdered suspension of papaya leaves increased thrombocyte count (2) and a water extract reduced alcohol-induced stomach damage (5). Hypoglycemic effects were also reported with use of papaya leaf extract in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats (10).

According to a case report, a water extract of papaya leaves was shown to increase the platelet count of a patient with Dengue fever (3)….”
