I have seen a series of papers on PubMed that show how the combination of ascorbic acid (vitamin c) and hydroxocobalamin (vitamin B12b) work synergistically to kill a range of cancer types. None of these papers mention human trials, but I wondered whether any one has tried self-medicating with that combination?

If you want to check out the papers then use PubMed home and the search phrase: b12b ascorbic

If you look more carefully, you will find that this is by IV, and therefore not possible to do by self-medication.

Hi ppp

You are an interesting character. I just went through your posts and you only ever seem to post in this forum. Just wondering what your motivation is here and why you only post on the CAM board? I may have missed something so please forgive me if I have. Have you had any personal experience with Cancer ?

Feel free to tell me to butt out if you wish but my curiosity has been aroused and I feel a compulsion to follow it through :?

Hi,

I'm glad Vee caught that as I've only heard of IV Vitamin C therapy too. Wouldn't it be wonderful if some simple vitamin could just be taken that would really cure cancer? I've known of about two people who routinely did the Vitamin C infusions and they've actually done pretty good. They may have done just as well without it or had indolent cancer, so there is no way of really knowing for sure.

My experiences of cancer...My first wife died of ovarian cancer at age 29. 14 months later my two year old son developed a rhabdomyosarcoma. After two years of treatment this was finally cleared. Fast forward and now my son is 15. Last April he developed a basal cell carcinoma that was excised. Shortly after that he developed a strange set of symptoms that was diagnosed as an osteosarcoma of the mandible. That was in September.

Since then it has been confirmed that he has Li Fraumeni Syndrome, which means he has a genetic disposition to cancer. He has been on chemo since september but the treatment is barely keeping a lid on the tumour. His last PET scan was not good. He's had both first line and second line drugs now. He can't have radiotherapy because of the treatment he had as a child.

So hopefully you can see my interest in finding something else that can support him?

Hi ppp

Thank you for replying to me. I do understand your being here now and I can see quite clearly why you are interested in posting and reading this forum. If I find any information that could be useful to you I will be sure to post it here for your perusal.
Of all the CAM methods you have looked at which one do you think has the most promise?

re maximum dose Vit C, taken as a drink: Beware - it can reduce efficacy of chemo by up to 70%.

Some excellent information on the following links.
Some research shows the use of supplements and antioxidants actually increase the efficacy of chemotherapy while decreasing the negative side effects.
