Glutamine Supplementation

Intro on Glutamine Glutamine is the most abundant, naturally occurring, non-essential amino acid in the human body. It is synthesized through enzymatic action of glutamine synthetase (GS) that combines glutamate and ammonia. It is synthesized through enzymatic action of glutamine synthetase (GS) that combines glutamate and ammonia. It serves as a vehicle for transporting ammonia in a nontoxic

A few words on Monocarboxylate transporters and their relevance in cancer

Here we have a new and very good article on MCTs: Monocarboxylate transporters in the brain and in cancer It explains the role of MCTs in normal and cancer cells and an important point is related to the fact that although MCT1 has the highest affinity to lactate all MCTs (from MCT1 to MCT4) can both

Treating Ascites with Angiogenesis Inhibitors

Malignant ascites are side effects of some cancers (and potentially anti-cancer treatments), characterized by the accumulation of fluid in the abdomen. Recently, I have received from a friend this article on ascites (from epithelial ovarian cancer), and thought is a good idea to share this here: Macrophage Blockade Using CSF1R Inhibitors Reverses the Vascular Leakage Underlying Malignant Ascites in

Gelum Drops: reducing lactic acid, increasing hemoglobin and lymphocytes

This is a German product that has been recommended to me by a German friend (Thank you!) and though I should share that with all the readers. So here it is her e-mail: “Just wanted to give you some information about a product, which you can share also with others (if you like). A natural

Anti cancer drugs and supplements

Below is a piece of a recent nice article proposing a broad-spectrum integrative approach for cancer prevention and treatment. I find it interesting specifically because the article is suggesting a large list of drugs and supplements that are easy to access while addressing multiple anti cancer mechanisms. The article is entitled: Designing a broad-spectrum integrative approach for cancer

Gut bacteria amplifies immunotherapy: the power of Probiotics

Today, I came across this very interesting news, adding support to a fast growing amount of knowledge suggesting a strong connection between gut bacteria and the immune system: Gut bacteria can dramatically amplify cancer immunotherapy “Introducing certain bacteria into the digestive tracts of mice with melanoma can help their immune systems attack tumor cells. The gains were

Potential solutions against Cachexia: Glutaminolysis inhibitors and more

Conclusion To avoid cachexia we need to reduce the request for glutamine via lactate (see the seven points below) and in order to kill cancer cells relying on glutamine we should reduce/inhibit glutaminolysis (e.g. EGCG), reduce glutamine transport (retinoic acid), reduce blood glutamine (phenylbutyrate and avoid (red) meet). Background Cachexia is loss of weight, muscle

Modulating free radical production with low level magnetic fields

The following article is a nice one indicating that simply placing magnets on your body may lead to modulation of ROS production in cancer cells. Modulation of Hydrogen Peroxide Production in Cellular Systems by Low Level Magnetic Fields Increased generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and an altered redox status have long been observed in

Autoimmune disease & Quercetin

Autoimmune disease is aabnormal immune response of the body against substances and tissues normally present in the body. In other words the immune system starts attacking healthy parts of the body. I decided to shortly write about thisdisease since it is a potential side effect following treatments with immunotherapies such as DendriticCells or anti PD1/PDL1

A fit for ketogenic diet

One short but important point: for cancers with no or limited mitochondria use ketogenic diet. That will be very effective. Why? The cancer cells will not be able to switch on fuels other than glucose. ccRCC seems to be a cancer characterized by low to no mitochondria.

Some of the most effective treatments in my opinion

Here is a list of some of the most effective anti-cancer treatments I am currently aware of: Salinomycin – a potassium inophore that will interfere with intracellular potassium. If delivered in the right dose, there is a high chance of affecting the cancer cells while not affecting the normal cells. It has been used on

Adding content

I expect this weekend I will have time enough to start adding more content to the blog. If you have any preference regarding the focus of this content, please write a suggestions. If not I will just pick some areas myself.
