Almost all Australians have some form of plaque build up

30% of Australians die from heart attack

Coronary artery disease is the clogging or blockage of the coronary arteries caused by atherosclerosis.
High cholesterol diets, lack of exercise or your genetics can cause cholesterol to build up in the arteries. 52 Australians die each day from heart attack.
What if we could simply melt the plaque away?

This can be reversed


Scientists discover new treatment


Mice artery showing substantial reduction in plaque

German scientists discover treatment to remove plaque

In 2016 a team of scientists from Germany's Bonn University discovered a new compound that reduced plaque in mice by over 40% in as little as 4 weeks.

The new cyclodextrin compound (CAVADEX®) was also tested on human plaque and they discovered it affected the plaque in a similar way.

breakthrough discovery !!

Angiogram: First patient has substantial plaque reduction in just 4 weeks

CAVADEX® melts away plaque

CAVADEX® was administered to our first patient in our Melbourne clinic in April 2019 and within 4 weeks the plaque was significantly reduced!

CAVADEX® circulates around the cardiovascular system removing built up cholesterol and plaque resulting in significant plaque reduction in as little as 4 weeks.

CAVADEX® is absorbed via intravenous application, as an enema and now as a low absorption tablet.

Regular low doses of CAVADEX® can have a significant effect on plaque build up

1 year update

It has been just over a year since our first patient was administered CAVADEX®. The patient was administered a 4-week intravenous treatment and then administered RemChol twice a week for 52 weeks. The patient had 3 angiograms during that time.

Research studies

"Alzheimer disease"
A study on the effects of HP-B-CD in transgenic mice with Alzheimer disease showed a dramatic reduction in symptoms and significantly improved spatial learning and memory deficits in mice. The study concluded HP-B-CD could be a novel therapeutic strategy for Alzheimer disease.

"Diabetic kidney disease"
HP-B-CD has shown promising pre-clinical results in kidney disease. Progression of kidney disease was prevented in mouse models and diabetic kidney disease was prevented or partially prevented in two pre-clinical studies.

"Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease"
Several studies have shown that HP-B-CD reduces liver cholesterol and cholesterol crystals. HP-B-CD has a substantial effect on cholesterol distribution and cholesterol transporters.

"Improved eyesight"
Lipofuscin accumulation in the retinal pigment epithelium is a hallmark of aging. A study was done on the effects of cyclodextrin and found that the beta-cyclodextrin can bind retinal lipofuscin, prevent its oxidation and remove it.
Cholrem patients have also reported improved vision after treatments of CAVADEX®.
