The drug DCA appears to be working in some cancer patients but it isn't receiving much funding since it can be manufactured generically and so pharmaceutical companies can't make money from it and are unwilling to invest in clinical trials. There are some clinical trials being carried out in Canada. The way DCA works is that it targets the common mechanism in ALL cancers which is to get it's energy via glycolysis instead of the ordinary energy path way via the Kreb's cycle. The drug forces the cells to turn to non-glycolysis energy pathways and can induce apoptosis. Another alternative for cancer cells is fatty acid metabolism and so a strategy being suggested and tried by some is to take fat metabolism blockers which are apparently found in GREEN TEA. It is also being noticed that patients who drink caffeine beverages are doing better than non-caffeine drinkers and this is somethign to do with increasing efficacy of the DCA. Also vitamin B1 is meant to be a helpful supplement in treatment. I am a physics student and have little biology knowledge so I may have used terminology or explained some things incorrectly - but you can read for yourself at this website (which i have favorited): http://www.thedcasite.com/index.html DCA is being hailed as the CURE for ALL CANCER and you yourself can purchase the chemical in its raw form from the internet, although i believe it cant be shipped into the United States but a friend or relative could bring you the chemical from abroad. Purchase from here: http://www.buydca.com/index.html The drug has been through CLINICAL TRIALS for a chronic disease often seen in children called lactic acidosis which is a buildup of lactic acid in the blood due to damaged or non-functioning mitochondria. It is safe, has low toxicity and is very cheap. The current cancer trials are trialling the drug in combination with traditional chemotherapy and radiation treatments on advanced stage or difficult to treat cancers so I'm unsure if the drug alone can treat cancer, although it may prove to be the case now that other developments have been found such as addition of CAFFEINE, GREEN TEA EXTRACT AND VITAMIN B1. This treatment may save lives and people are recovering from terminal diagnoses. Spread the word and we may beat this thing yet. A video here: I'm in the UK and may buy a batch since you never know when governments may adopt a US style ban on imports of the drug.
