  1. Hi Daniel,

    Hope all is well. Do you by any chance have details of any patients who have used or have been using 3-BP in India. My father has been diagnosed with Oral Cancer SCC on tongue last year and it has spread to the lymph nodes in the neck now. The doctors have suggested Radiation therapy along with Chemo. I’ve read about 3-BP on couple of forums and some research papers documenting the usage of 3-BP in humans and I am excited about exploring it as alternate treatment.
    It would be great if you can share any details that you might have about 3-BP patients, so I can contact them about the treatment options.

    Thanks,
    Sravanth

  2. Just wondering if you have any recommendations or protocols for Neuroblastoma a family friend has been given under a year to live and the doctors say nothing more they can do to help.

    1. Dear Darren, I am sorry to hear that. You can use the serch option on this page to serach for Neuroblastoma related subjects and you will find a few specific points. However, many of the potential treatments discussed here are not specific so they may be relevant even if not specifically discuses in the context of Neuroblasoma. Next to that you may want to have a look at these posts:

  3. Hello, I recently asked a question about GcMAF and Rerum. You mentioned something about the chondroitin that was a concern in advanced prostate cancer (or all prostate cancer). I can’t find that comment. Can you please respond what your concern is? I am interested in using the Rerum for my husband who has advanced prostate cancer (bone mets). Dollar for dollar, where is money best spent in the possibility of Rerum or the Methyglyoxal? Have you been able to connect with Dr. Ruggiero to discuss the issue of the chondroitin?
    Thank you very much for your time.

  4. Hi Cathy. You posted your question here http://www.cancertreatmentsresearch.com/?page_id=2 and on the same page you had my answer with the related concern. Next to that, you may want to read this recent post on Hyaluronic Acid http://www.cancertreatmentsresearch.com/?p=1489. In this post I did touched a bit Rerum as well. Based on the knowledge I have so far, I would use Rerum only in very early stage or to avoid recurrence. In advanced stages, I would stay away from products that may lead to increase of hyaluronyc acid production, which is the case for Chondroitin Sulfate (which is an ingredient in Rerum). Since you are asking me to compare the two, here is what I know today:

    Methylglyoxal:
    – clear since to support its anti cancer activity, even a Nobel Prize winner intensively publishing on that
    – long history as anti cancer solution
    – available to everyone as raw material, not a product developed and sold by a specific company, so no marketing behind
    – anecdotal reports and more importantly clinical trials results are available indicating (high) anti cancer effectiveness in late stage patients

    Rerum:
    – debatable anti cancer activity of Chondroitin (from Rerum), from a scientific point of view there are pros and cons why to use and why not (see http://www.cancertreatmentsresearch.com/?p=1489)
    – short history as anti cancer solution (is it actually promoted as an anti cancer solution or just immune stimulator?)
    – one company product with serious marketing behind, very expensive – if we really want to use it we can also buy and administer the ingredients (chondroitin, oleic acid, vitamin D3 and vitamin D2) separately and with this get a lower total cost
    – no clinical trials and not yet anecdotal reports

    Based on the above assessment, if I would look at prevention of recurrence I may consider Rerum, but if I would deal with late stage for of cancer I would avoid that while seriously considering Methylglyoxal option.
    I did not contact Dr. Ruggiero as I do not have the time. I heard only good things about him and I do not want to associate the above with him. I am just connecting the evidence available. I hope this helps Cathy.

  5. Hi, my father 66 years old is having a second relapse of Hodgkins Lymphoma. He previously suffered from Hodgkins Lymphoma in 1997 and 2004 and after chemotheraphy and radiation the disease was in remission between 1997 and 2004, and 2004 and 2016.

    He has several metabolically active lymphnodes in his body. Since the latest diagnosis in June 2016, he has received two rounds of chemotherapy and the doctors now believe that his body is not responding to chemotherapy. Is this something that could be potentially treated by high dose Vitamin C?

    I would really appreciate if we could get some advice on this and get him started on the treatment asap.

    1. Hi Hitesh,

      I am sorry to hear about your father. I hope he will get well soon.
      I cannot advice what treatments you should do but I can give you some examples: There are multiple options like chemo + see my post on how to make that effective, Salinomycin, 3BP, Diflunisal, Immunotheraphy, etc.
      The point is that due to lower response rate, Vit C to me is a supportive treatment. Next to that you need a treatment with higher chance of success such as those mentioned above.
      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  6. Hi Daniel

    My father in law, aged 74, has been diagnosed with StageIV Gastric cancer (adenocarcinoma with peritoneal metastasis).

    The oncologists responsible have suggested to start chemotherapy under FOLFOX protocol which we did yesterday as they pointed out that we shouldn’t lose time without chemo.

    The last few weeks we have been searching over the internet for alternative treatments that may be beneficial to our situation. We came across therapies via Gcmaf, 2nd Generation Gcmaf, Rerum, Cannabis oil etc. To say the least we are confused to what we should follow.

    We do not object to any method of treatment (alternative and / or conventional) if it is going to be beneficial to our case. I would greatly appreciate it if you could please advise us based on your experience and knowledge which could be the best option to consider (provided we already started chemo) and what other treatments we should look into.

    Thanking you in advance

    1. hi Marios,

      some thoughts…

      Antimetabolic therapy (ketogenic diet, metformin, DCA, glucose inhibitors etc) + chemo is effective for many people – i would do both at the same time. Above you can find good summaries from Daniel under “treatments”. As its stage 4 i would consider full body hyperthermia if its accessible for you. Be aware that most alternative or out-of-paradigm pages – unlike this one- are selling products and therefore are not interested in giving you the full picture.

      as to colon cancer specifically, wheat extract Avermar works against colon cancer cells according to some studies. It is inexpensive and can be taken with chemo. Even hardcore oncologists accept that it helps well-being during chemo and radiation as it reduces some side effects.

      1. Hi Wondering,

        Thank you for your thoughts and comments! I appreciate the time you put down to give me any of your views!

        These suggestions are part of your own experience or research? I apologies for these questions but i just try to get a grib of all these information given and evaluate them as best that i can.

        Thank you

        Marios

        1. hey Marios,

          I have cancer, hence my interest – I understand your confusion because of the overload of information. It can be difficult to find out what is mainly business and what works indeed.

          each cancer is different and there are so many options… pages like this can help your father in law a lot. I also recommend searching on ncbi. You can search for colon cancer studies, this one considers DCA as a potentially useful therapy:

          https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5067498/

          My mother had stage 2 gastric cancer, recovered fully with chemo + radiation + Avemar. I dont know how much the latter helped but she thought Avemar reduced the side effects during the treatment.

      1. Dear Daniel,

        Hope you are well.

        Just a small note to kindly request again for your feedback/advise on my father’s in law case (see post at May 16, 2017 at 8:29 am)

        Thank you

        Marios
