What is Curaderm?
Curaderm contains a specially purified eggplant extract that is especially potent when applied to Basal cell carcinomas, Squamous cell carcinomas, and is also effective on benign tumors such as sun spots, age spots, Keratoses and Keratocanthmoas.
Curaderm has not been recognized or approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers, therefore doctors in the US continue to remain unaware of this product which has proven itself to be safe and effective in studies that have been performed in other countries.
Studies with Curaderm
Dermatologists at the Royal London Hospital have cited Bec5 as ‘safe and effective’ and ‘an ideal therapy for outpatient treatment.’ Since approximately 95% of all skin cancers are non-melanoma, this is an inexpensive and less invasive treatment than those currently being offered for treating primary and secondary skin cancers.
Recent trials in 10 UK hospitals found that a twice daily topical application of BEC5 cream to the affected areas gave a complete remission to 78% of the patients within 8-weeks time, with the remaining 22% of patients needing a marginally longer treatment time of up to 13 weeks in order to address their situaltions fully.
One particular study of 72 patients receiving treatment with BEC5 cream resulted in the regression of all treated lesions (56 actinic keratoses, 39 Basal Cell Carcinomas and 29 Squamous Cell Carcinomas), with 100% healed after 1 to 13 weeks of treatment of Curaderm topical cream. All this was facilitated without chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery.
It is estimated that over 100,000 people have used Bec5 cream, and the number continues to grow as more people look for more non-invasive treatments. Unfortunately you will not hear about this therapy in the United States because it is not FDA approved to treat skin cancers. If our system for drug approval was not based on monetary gain there would be no other logical excuse not to approving this product. In the meantime, it can be purchased online with assistance provided on the manufacturer’s website.
The leading researcher in this area today is Dr. Bill E. Cham, who reported as early as 1991 in a study:
“A cream formulation containing high concentrations (10%) of a standard mixture of solasodine glycosides (BEC) has been shown to be effective in the treatment of malignant and benign human skin tumors. We now report that a preparation … which contains very low concentrations of BEC (0.005%) is effective in the treatment of keratoses, basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) and squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) of the skin of humans. In an open study, clinical and histological observations indicated that all lesions (56 keratoses, 39 BCCs and 29 SCCs) treated with [the preparation] had regressed.”
Dr. Cham’s latest study was published in the International Journal of Clinical Medicine this year. The paper includes two impressive case reports of 60-something men who were suffering from large basal cell carcinoma (BCC) or squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), which had plagued them for years. The results upon treatment with a cream formulation of BEC (eggplant extract) twice a day are astounding. You can view the document and pictures here.

Side effects include- Patients who use Curaderm report stinging upon application of the product, along with redness, swelling, and the eruption of lesions that may discharge puss. The cream works by attacking cancerous cells and then allowing new skin to form underneath. As you can see in the video testimonial that is posted below, this is not a painless process and it can take up to 13 weeks of treatments in order to address a situation fully. Stopping the treatment early may result in leaving cancerous cells behind which may allow for a recurrence.
