What is Supportive Oligonucleotide Technique aka SOT Therapy?

Supportive Oligonucleotide Technique is a therapy used in treatment for Lyme disease and cancer. It targets specific gene expression to induce cell death. SOT is based on a technique called antisense therapy, which works to prevent the synthesis of specific unwanted proteins.(1)

SOT is used in a variety of illnesses, including cancer treatment, Lyme disease, Epstein-Barr, cytomegalovirus and Hepatitis C.(2)

What are oligonucleotides?

Before we dive into how SOT works, let’s understand what an oligonucleotide is. Simply put, oligonucleotides are short segments of single or double-stranded DNA or RNA. The SOT molecule is a mirror image to certain gene sequences and works to block the overall function. This impacts protein synthesis and replication.

How does SOT work?

Supportive Oligonucleotide Technique works with your immune response, causing it to target and kill pathogens or cancer cells. It also possesses the ability to cross cell membranes, enabling it to access infected cells and cancer tissue. Its small size lets it pass the blood-brain barrier. This allows SOT to address some of the neurological side effects of Lyme or reach tissues areas in the brain.

Because SOT uses mRNA to identify targets in a cell, it can seek out and decrease cell and pathogen replication, and induce cell death in these affected cells, but does not harm healthy cells.

What is the process for SOT?

The first step in treatment is having done the right tests. For Lyme and confections this would be a positive test result that is no older than 6-months. The first step in treatment is receiving a positive Lyme disease or co-infection test. For cancer this is an appropriate CTC. Once this has been completed, patients will have blood collected. The collected cells undergo analysis to identify the most active targets that facilitate replication in the disease.

Utilizing the RGCC lab, based in Europe, scientists will identify the small particle sequence that is involved in the diseased cell. This creation of the unique SOT takes approximately four to six weeks.

Benefits of SOT

  • SOT remains in your system for 24 to 28 weeks. This allows it to target cancer or-infected cells to induce cell death and eliminate the disease.

  • It begins to work right away and may take 1 or more treatments. (3)

  • mRNA technology means SOT only targets infected cells

  • Not contraindicated against other forms of Lyme treatment.

  • Symptoms, if any, are mild to moderate.

Are there any side effects to SOT?

Symptoms of SOT therapy can include:

  • Headaches (during or after therapy)

  • Fatigue

  • Aches

  • Nausea

  • Fever

  • Sweating

  • Coughing

  • Increased blood pressure or heart rate
