A 77 year old male began treatment with us for recurrent metastatic small cell carcinoma of the lung. He had a complete remission with a single dose of chemotherapy followed by DCA for 3 months. The patient has no evidence of any recurrence of cancer 1 year after completion of treatment.
This case is being submitted for consideration of publication, therefore details cannot be provided at this time. If it is accepted, a link will be posted. If it is not accepted, we will post a detailed case report here.
This case represents one of our best responses to DCA in combination therapy. Cancer patients reading this report should keep in mind that the likelihood of such an excellent response is estimated to be 1-2% based on our own patient data from 2006 to 2008. Patients should also be aware that our experience indicates combination therapies including DCA are better than treatment with DCA alone.
