donaght Posted September 29, 2007 Share Posted September 29, 2007 DCA (dichloroacetate) is a drug that was recently found to induce the death of human breast, lung and brain cancer cells that were implanted into rats, while being non-toxic to healthy cells. This research was published in Cancer Cell, 11, 37–51, January 2007. DCA has been found to kill cancer cells by a newly discovered mechanism that appears to be common to several types of cancer. No formal research has yet been done to determine if it will work on cancer within the human body. Earlier this week Health Canada (the governing body responsible for supervising drug trials) approved a small human study on the use of DCA to treat brain tumours. I'm 42 and have terminal lung cancer. Among other problems, I have a brain tumour that has been treated twice with radiation and, if there is no response to the latest treatment, I will have run out of options. I am aware that some people have begun taking DCA on their volition. Does anybody have any experience with this? Any information or ideas or tips will be welcome. Thanks, Tom Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
