Gold as Cancer Fighter


Gold as Cancer Fighter

Alternative medicine proponents have long attributed healing properties to gold, and in recent years, mainstream medical researchers have begun looking to the precious metal as well. In a recent study, tiny gold particles encased in the chemotherapy drug cisplatin appeared to boost the effectiveness of conventional radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment for an aggressive brain cancer. Cancer cells in samples subjected to this experimental treatment were completely eradicated, and over the next 20 days there was no regrowth. More… Discuss

news: Measles Virus Used to Wipe Out Cancer (multiple myeloma)


Measles Virus Used to Wipe Out Cancer

Researchers are cautiously optimistic about an experimental cancer treatment that uses a modified measles virus to target and kill cancerous cells. Two out of six multiple myeloma patients who were treated with extremely high doses of the engineered viruses responded to the treatment, with one appearing to enter into complete remission. These two patients were found to have few or no circulating measles antibodies, important because this affords the virus a chance to attack the cancer cells before the patient’s immune system begins fighting off the virus.

VITAMIN C POSSIBLE CANCER FIGHTER


Vitamin C Possible Cancer Fighter

In the 1970s, Nobel Prize – winning chemist Linus Pauling reported success treating cancer with intravenous vitamin C. However, when clinical trials of oral vitamin C failed to yield results, the medical establishment largely abandoned this line of research. Now, decades later, researchers are finding that injected vitamin C can kill cancer cells without harming healthy cells and that, when used in combination with chemotherapy, it can slow tumor growth and curb chemotherapy side effects. More… Discuss
