Why or Why Not does DCA Work




He should have died by now.



 Have discontinued medical treatment thus have no way to measure results. In the below
question, the masses are all internal, not visable.
 DCA did not halt growth of recurrent tumour Took it for two months prior to chemotherapy.
However, combined with chemo embolisation there may have been a positive effect. The
tumour is no longer visable after two sessions, although the PET scan shows a small level of
residual activity. The response has surprised doctors. Chemo embolisation delivers
chemotherapy directly to the tumour via the blood vessels feeding the tumour. The dose I got
locally in each treatment was about twice the normal systemic dose per session.

 I have not had any tumors for the last 10 years, only a PSA score that has gone up and
down over the years. All of my yearly CAT scans, bone scans and x-rays have not show
any detectable tumors.                                                                      Yes
 Too short for opinion here. Have MRI in 1 week                                             Yes




Its been stable, but I am not sure if its because of the DCA or the T.M..                   Yes

 A lot of things have changed, but we do not know how to interpret them. He used to
throw up every morning after waking up with an empty stomach filled with bile. All of a
sudden, this stopped. From this morning on, he rejected the caffeinated energy drinks
he used to consume (5-8 tins/day). It appeared that these drinks also contin taurine,
which seems to effectively bind bile. Many other signals are present. I will elaborate on
them later.                                                                                 Yes

 DCA seemed like a worthwhile project to undertake. Conventional
medicine has little to offer with my slow growth cancer. In 2000 I was told
that without medical treatment I would likely die within two years. Eight
years later I am still working. Interestingly my oncologist had the same
cancer at the same time, treated at his clinic. He passed away five years

            I have really run out of the regular options to reduce my PSA. The next step would have
           been clinical trials, but now that the DCA is working, that will be postponed. My
           oncologist even wrote me a presciption for DCA but I am having difficulty finding a
           pharmacy that can fill it. One independent compounding pharacy is still trying. They tell
           me it is on back order. So in the meantime, Jim Tassano's web site is my source, a real
           life line.

            I will give my consent about the publishing of my son's wherebouts on this site in due
           time, when we know more about the progression of his disease. I think it is in the benefit
           to the community to share out date, but at this moment it is too easy to identify him
           purely by his story which might interefere with the availability of the treatment by his
           oncologist.

            went back to have ct scan in thailand were i got the first one and when it came back no
           sizes on it so couldn't tell what the cancer was doing went to doctor and he said the
           machine would have given measurements if there was something to measure however
           he said that i had a lot of scar tissue there caused by operation and i told him didn't have
           operation and he couldn't beleive that the lung is clear the tumor is gone except there are
           signs on lymph nodes but the major one is gone almost to the day i have lost a little bit of
           my lung from radation but i feel great one little note here i listened to the tapes of the
           secret and that put me in positive frame of mind

 this time we are doing 3g/day. Before we had
tried 1.5g/day but we stopped because of
possible interaction with chemo treatments and
cumulated side effects. We had tried 2 weeks
and could not conclude if it had an impact. This
time we do DCA concurrently with 3 chemo,          twice_a_day       unsure

 Possibly as tumor started to shrink around time of starting to use DCA. Prior to that I had
consistent tumor progression.
 Esophagial tumor shrinks when I'm taking DCA, and grows when I'm not taking DCA. My liver
tumor continues to grow. I have had no testing to confirm this.



every thing is the same

Brain tumour grew but some parts of lung & sternam shrunk



 their was not any sign that the spreading of the illness was slowing or stabelizing. The cancer
develloped as was predicted.




don't know




 4-5 attempts lasted 5-10 days (over period of 5 months) but were stopped because of
increased symptoms and we did not know if it was caused by interaction with chemo.
 Less pain, possible slowdown of metastasis, don't know for sure yet




 Till Jan 30
 Tumor shrinkage and her condition was untreatable. No one has ever lived past a year with
her diagnosis due to her compromised immune system and stage IV lung cancer. At onbe point
her chemo had failed but she continued to have good response until she stpped fro three
weeks and it started up again. We went back on and its shrinking again.

 Much of my feeling better has to do with removal of drugs that caused severe side
effects. In addition to DCA I also take Gleevec.                                             Yes

 There was some response after 3h. High urination had show up. Lot of blood in urine.
But how i learned later it was cause of his recumbent position. Later the second part of
dose. After few hours the same. High urination. And more blood in urine. Some excretion
had come up. Something looking like phlegm mixed with blood. As i learned later it could
be a squama due to his recumbent position. But then not knowing it I just freak out and
stopped giving DCA to my Dad,                                                                No

 The issue is she is taking chemo and its damaging her so we are thinking about

                          DCA Survey Results


 My last two MRI's showed a 75% reduction in tumor.this after a year of tumor
progression. My speech which was hesitant due to tumor growth has become more near
normal. Clinically in the last month I have some symptom improvement. DCA? Who
knows. I am being closely followed by my neurlo-oncologist at large cancer centre. He
writes the prescription for DCA. He is delighted. I am not a tea drinker, but your
anecdotal data is compelling. I will start with green/black tea.




 where can i get more DCA?
 Maybe if using DCA ealier before tumour spread to the brain we might have had a good
result.




 I regret that i freaked out. I see great potential in DCA. I tried to put DCA mixed wit oil
mint on Dad's head, because i was afraid of the blood in urine (thought that it would be in
common with kidney malfunction). I was giving him for about 3 or 4 days. Then due to
pneumonia stopped. Dad passed away due to pneumonia few days later.




will follow the new protocol (DCA, B1 and tea)

 if one takes DCA for a longer period, I think 10 mg/kg is the max the body can take;
please inform us if it is the caffe∩ne or another product in the tea which makes DCA
work and if 12 - 14 cups of tea a day is really necessary : this amount is a lot; I won't take
caffeine capsules any more because the impact on the body is too much: after having
stopped with everything onFeb 20 I still can't sleep without sleeping pills; before I start
the protocol again I will find out which tea the body can digest best because 12-14 cups a
day is a lot; thanks for everything!


 We will go back on DCA this week using smaller rpescribed dosages with the black tea
and B1. We hope the nueropathy will pass over time.

 When we stop the cancer comes back, when she uses it the cancer stabilizes. My friend with
pancreatic cancer stated when reviewing the CT scan results his doctors said they could see a
white circle around his cancer cells but had never seen that before. He did not tell them he was
taking DCA.
 tummors were larger on last scan, but was not drink black tea. was drinking 2 cups of green
tea




 tummors were larger on last scan, but was not drink black tea. was drinking 2 cups of green

Tumor response -> she didn't take any chemo, or other therapy with DCA.




 Original lesions were 1 cm. around 7/15/07. They grew to 2 cm. by 9/15/07. Last scan
12/15/07 indicated no new growth. Next scan coming by middle of March to determine more.

Liver has gotten smaller --tumor wise and I have felt much better




 It was a long time ago- and I've been so ill I didnt keep records.
 Because she is under no other treatement and was detirorating badly efore she started DCA
and now she is very stale and even a bit better.




 My main symptom is swallowing difficulties. Initially I had no improvement, then I stopped
taking Mega anti- oxidents after reading about it on the DCA site. My swallowing started to
improve after then. I still have problems with things like rice, so I am using that as my marker
now. I am still waiting for my latest scan result as when I had my previous one I was not taking
DCA.

 Her last 2 MRI's and 1 ultra sounds came back clear but her PET from the same week
showed that she still had cancer in both lungs. The right lung showed a shrinkage from
=.3 to 4.2 centimeters and the other cancer sites like the bone all showed no abnormal
SUV, Her left lung showed stable mets and others that seemed to have grown from 1mm
to 1.2 mm and her right lung also has many mets with very little SUV. This was big! when
she stopped DCA these mets started up and were very active so in 12 cycles and on 3
weeks of dca the activity had dropped dramatically.                                      Yes

 Started drinking 6 to 7 cups of black tea per day three days ago.                       Yes
His last MRI on 3/27/08 showed some progression of the tumors and some new ones.
The radiologist also mentioned possible necrosis in the report. We were hoping for
necrosis to indicate that tumors were dying. Larry had to stop the DCA as he was getting
trmors. He stopped the DCA on April 17, 2008. The tremors have subsided. Sorry as we
we hoping that this would work.


 Tumor from Adrenal Gland disappeared in 1 month, the rest is shrinking; we hope that
before 2008 it will all be over.                                                         Yes

 The tumor shrank but the cancer suddenly attacked the liver, he got very weak and we
had to put him to sleep.                                                                 No

 The reponse has not been as quick as I expected by reading emails on the site, but my
primary tumour was originaly very large (14cm). I know it is shrinking slowly.           Yes

 She tries to keep her PH up becuase she had her best results when her PH was in the
8.+ range. DCA seemed to have less acid to deal with in her system and was much more
effective for her. We cannot seem to get her PH back over 7.0 but we keep trying.    yes

Prior to drinking the black tea, Larry was not getting any caffiene. He was drinking a cup
of green tea before starting the black tea. He uses two tea bags to a cup and drinks
about 4 of these cups a day. The caffiene appears to be agreeing with Larry. We were
concerned about his atrial fib and the caffiene, but that does not seem to be a rpoblem.

 I some times eat white meat (chicken ect). I am following a PH diet, but my level is

           Lien is now on Avastin and Cisplatin on a weekly rotation of
          Low Dose amounts. These amounts seem to allow her to
          have hair and a life but the cycle of Gemzar and almita
          attacked her nerves so she is jsut atarting to walk around on
          her own sometimes without a walker. She went up the stairs
          and walked to the couch on her own this week without her
          walker. DCA is not the reason she had this bad bout - it was
          her low magnesium and potasium along with the above
          mentioned chemos. Folks need to watch out for those two
          chemos and take = LOT of L_Glutamine and B1 if they want

 DCA is taking a bad rap for Chemo affects and Cancer issues. We did it in the past and
now know its simply not the cause of our issues. Lien is so much stronger with DCA in
her system its amazing. I also beleive for Lung Cancer its best to drink it or have it in
liquid form over just using a pill. We had much better and faster results when it was used
in water with a bit of lemon squeezed in. Lien is alive becuase of Jim and Heather and
DCA of course. We (including our oncologist) who is brilliant to say the least know it has
worked for Lien. His question every time I see him is ( is she taking DCA?) I say yes and
he says - keep her on it - it is helping the chemo - the chemo stopped working when she
stopped so do not stop! What more can a doctor say than that - its working and we all
know it!

Started drinking black tea about 3 days ago.




Larry does not seem to be bothered with neuropathy.


thank you for your efforts Jim, I hope you get to something with this survey




THANKS for all that you do to help others!

DCA does help cancer victims and one with cancer should use DCA




 may well go back to DCA when I finish taking the chemo- do you think I could take it with
the chemo?




I plan to continue using DCA, and then to perform MR of brain to monitor status of tumor.



 I am glad you have started this survey an I will encourage other I know using DCA to
help with it.

mental awareness from almost unconcious to almost pre-cancer state




 because we think the chemo is no more working he started taking dca on saterday and on
monday the nightsweatting started again. at our opinion the dca works but we have to wait until
the next pet-ctscan to have oficial results.


We prescribed it too late. Unfortunately he passed away before the benefits were seen.


cancer was very advanced




 I can not specify the results because of all the treatments I have got. The last examinations

A year and a half after loosing my left kidney and a 10.5 cm nuclear grad 4 tumor, I should be
dead from Renal Cell Carcinoma. Perhaps due to DCA, rather than feeling like a 65 year old, I
feel like a teenager. I started DCA right after surgery. No metastasis yet!!!


I started it too late.

 The improvement in mental state has been spectacular. Val is still unable to stand but is
receiving physiotherapy. CTScans indicate no significant reduction in brain tumour size,
but she no longer has the extreme headaches - she no longer needs pain killers.




 as soon as they make a new pet-ctscan and we have the results, we will send them to
you. we would like to have some advise about how to take the dca proppely and what to
take along with it. - at this moment he takes 100mg Vitamin B1 and 600 mg dca at noon
and after one hour he takes his MMS - at 18.00 hours he takes with his food the D-vital
calcium - at 20.00 hours he takes again 600 mg dca - then he begins to drink his tea
(about 1 liter or more) please tell us if we are doing this right or not. We hope to have
being helpful and we keep you noticed. Greetings, Karin and Eric.




I take DCA everyday and am not sure if it's helping. I figure it can't hurt at this dose.




 IT IS TOO BAD THAT I STARTED GIVING IT TO HER SO LATE A STAGE IN HER
DISEASE. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR RESEARCH AND PLEASE KEEP ALL OF US
INFORMED WITH YOUR PROGRESS.

 I am not on DCA now. Presently I am on a

 His symptoms worsened. he couldn't talk or move. Before DCA and only on vitamins, he
seemed to be thriving




Probably, I did not give it a proper chance Also The dose could be much higher,




 Too early to tell. coughing sessated, now black mucus is being coughed up from a very
different sounding cough. More lucid in the week off than before starting DCA. Given 4-6 weeks
to live from Jan 2nd, 2008.
 Rapid clearance of CNS disturbance like blurred vision and anbormal sensations within about
6 hours, but weeks later, notable pleural effusion. (This is on behalf of the deceased, who
thought things got worse a short while after DCA use..)




See above



Cancer shrank and died. internal lumps decreased in size.




 on 3. day of DCA-intake I suddenly regained strength and felt much better (got rid off terrible
fatigue)

 Better initially before a decline but she was asymptomatic from the actual lung
metastases on commencing DCA. Her symptoms at the time were due to 3 days of brain
irradiation.                                                                                   No


 Patient was murdered by hospice in 5 days. What a horrific thing to happen when Dad
was in remission. I'm still trying to spread the word about DCA and would like to be
notified when it becomes available again.                                                      Yes


 after the dosing with DCA Amy did seem to improve somewhat until the infection which
killed her kicked in. She certainly regained some of her initial vigour.                       No

 every 2-3month a MRI was perforned and compared with previous MRI`s. parallel there
was a strict control of all relevant blood-parameters. There was first no growth of the
metas.1 month after taking DCA tomors began to loose their contours and started to flow
into each other.,this is progressing.A HD PET/CT from this month confirmed this
development. CEA-values went up from 35(before DCA)to about 4000 now( in 6 month
,doubling once in about 4 weeks). There was an increase in LDH,Gamma-GT
BILIRUBIN-and alc. Phosphat.-values above the normal-level.CRP increased from 5 to
40. My oncologist (is not interested in DCA)seems helpless;his explanation: There is a
strong decay of liver tissue ; he believes in a proliferation.All other blood-parametersare
in the normal range. My question: Have other users of DCA comparable experiences? I
forgot to mention that the radiologist diagnosed in the centers of the metas increasing
necrosis. This could explain the increasing CEA values.                                        Yes

Have talked to onc about dca. He would feel comfortable with me being part of a trial.
Has doubts about self medicating




 I have been fighting Limphoma since 2000. Gone through 4 times Chemo including one
Auto. Stem Cell Chemo, four times Radiation. First Chemo and radiation lasted 4 years
but after that now it comes back in less than 6 months. I, also, tried Cesium chloride
which did not work for me.




 Our oncologists are opposed to DCA on 'ethical grounds' while our psychiatris and our
family doctor (GP) are supportive. We have a new oncologist who is dispensing DCA in
Toronto at Medicorcancer.




Let me know the latest so I can get others help. Also keep in touch with Michael
Broffman who recommended the DCA in the first place. Michael@pinest.org

 The tumour predeceased Amy. She was placed on a mix of DCA and Omegas as we
reasoned that a dual treatment was more effective. It was intended to reduce the blood
supply at the same time as encouraging the cancer to use up its resources.

 Took DCA for 2 months, but due to tingling & numbness in finger tips and feet (esp.
toes), I discontinued, hoping it would go away and I could resume. Dr. who gave me
Prescription suggested stopping to let it subside. Then was accepted for a trial of
Sunitinib at Princesss Margaret Hospital in Toronto, Canada. After 2 months lung
tumors stabilized, and even had a bit of shrinkage, but tomors in kidneys and rib
cage did not stabilize, so am now on 3rd month and will be tested again at end of
4th month to see if improvement. If growth continues in ribs and kidneys they may
remove me from trial program. If so, I may consider DCA again. Still have some of
the tingling and numbness in toes & some in fingers, and had to stop Sunitinib for 1
week when it became worse and was unable to walk witout pain - also had mouth
sores. Much better after the short break, and now back on it for 3 days, and so far
so good.                                                                               two_months

on 3. day after start I felt much better and stronger (loss of fatigue)




Was not on it for long enough to see any change.
because we have been aware of DCA too late and when she began to Take DCA she had ten
Tumor in the head yet.



 Clinically stable. Had seemed much worse after a week of DCA, but that was probably another
medication (Clobazam). Once he was weaned off that and restarted on DCA, has been
stable/improved. Tumor might have grown after chemo/radiation, so chemo was stopped, but it
has been stable on MRI since before starting the DCA. So DCA may have helped, has not hurt.
We'll see.


I feel much better and more active. No side effects.
NOT ENOUGH TIME. CONDITION DID NOT IMPROVE QUALITY OF LIFE POOR. FOUND
OUT FROM EXPERT THAT IT COULD TAKE 3 MOS AVERAGE TO SEE RESULTS. PUT
DOG TO SLEEP
caugh is less, blood comes not out with spittle as before, loosing weight stopped, put on
weight, condition is good



 Jan.28th scan showed lung tumor growth of .5cm from Dec.01 to Jan.28. Started taking DCA
Jan.21st, March 6th scan showed no growth, tumor holding at 2cm



 Gained back 20 lbs, became physically strong again, able to walk again,regained interests.
 because I was taking DCA with Chemo and some tumors reduced, some unchanged, and
some larger.

 Melissa had body scans 2 days after she started dca. three weeks later she had extensive
tests again and the cancer had spread all over her body,the other lung, brain, kidney, liver,
adrenals, subcutaneous tissue, and female organs.

 every 2-3 month MRI , first metas showed no growth in size and structure ; about 3
month after DCA metas started to loose their sharp outlines in the MRI ,this development
is continueing.In parallel the CEA inccreased from 35 to 3500 in 6 month =CRP went up
from 3 to 40 now ; values of LDH,Gamma-GT and Bilirubin are above the normal level.All
other relevant blood-parameters in the normal range. Comment of my oncologist there is
a strong decay of liver tissue. My question - Are similar developments known as the
result of taking DCA?                                                                    Yes

 Have some slight numbness in left shin and foot but had previous disc surgery

 after 3 weeks of dca, it was stopped because of numbness of the legs. i don't
think the dca caused this, because we later found out her legs were full of
clots, and she died of a pulmonary embolism.                                        yes

No Breast Cancer   I would be willing to go back on DCA of I am taken off the other trial program.



                   HAve been taking DCA 1gm/day 5days on 2 off, 3 weeks on 1 off. Several periods with
                   NO DCA - Sep07 and Feb08 (whole months). Complete PSA history available if required




                    I don't know just yet if this information will help if published. I don't feel that I have taken
                   it for any length of time to make an accurate determination. I myself, feel that I have
                   been making great progress.




                   Of course you can post this survey-without our personal informations.




                    Summary would be good, to early for any conclusions
                    DCA appeared to provide very fast results with weight gain, increased strength, appetite,
                   decreased swelling in legs & feet, ability to walk, decreased pain, increased energy &
                   interest in living. Changes started in the first week. Looks & acts like a new person.
                   Thankyou for DCA & your support.

There is ample evidence regrowth of bone, tumour markers CEA and CA15,3 are at
background levels, hot spots at bone scan are very much weakend and have in part
disappeared alltogether. My wife has taken some dca to try it out, but since the
dendritic cell treatment was so successful there was no reason to continue with dca.

 Alexander seems to be beating doctor expectations. Some of the signs of edema shown in his
MRIs have subsided. His overall alertness and mobility has increased since we started on the
higher dose regimen.


My CA-125 (ovarian cancer marker blood test) dropped dramatically when I started taking
DCA. The doctors had no explanation for this.

 Alexander has a complex situation because of a brain-stem bleed that he suffered last
August and it is difficult to distinguish tumor symptoms from radiation damage symptoms
or hemmorhage sysmptoms. However his overall condition has been improving since

supplements and medicines.                                                                  Yes

 Although DCA appears to have potential, Jane had to get off of it, and then tried
PolyMVA. The doctor administering that admitted that it probably would not be very
effective because of the high doses of morphine she was on. It might be worth
investigating the correlation between morphine use and DCA effectiveness.



dca saved my live please let know everybody greetings from belgium



THANKS FOR ALL




 I stopped taking DCA after Christmas, 2007 because I was running low on dosage - but
since my CA-125 started to elevate again and we were able to obtain more - I started
taking it again 1 month ago and we'll see if it works again. I'm getting low again - how
can I get some more so I can continue to take this. THANKS!!!!

My son Ben has died just before Christmas




Barbara became so depressed on it that we had to take her off.

Got more color to his face and started moving around more, looked and felt better




 In May, 2007 I took super IL2 treatment immediately upon getting off the DCA and didn't get
scanned until August, 2007. My last scan was Nov, 2007; started Nexavar =an., 2008; added
DCA Feb. 2008; will be scanned again in March or April.

 Not much success based an ultrasound exam wich was taken 5 day ago. It showed multiple
tumors in her liver which was only one (5cm) in December


I have no detectable tumors only an elevated PSA.




 I read early on that DCA works well in conjunction to chemo. By the 2nd cycle of chemo, the
large tumor in the Right lung had shrank so rapidly and so fast that it paused Plural efusion and
Tom had to be hospitalized for a week with a chest tube. During his stay in the hospital, he had
regular CT scans to monitor the tumor shrinkage and the healing of the lung.




I only took it for one day, so can not discuss the benefit.

 We were unable to get a scan to determine tumor response, but her tumor markers
went up during its use. I know that this can be misleading, as they can go up when the
tumor is dying.                                                                             Not_sure

 Started DCA on 1/8/08. My PSA went from 12.9 (tested on 12/6/07) to 8.1 (tested
2/6/08). Next test on =/11/08, will report findings.                                        Yes




 Tom is doing absolutely GREAT. His voice has returned from a whisper to full volumn.
He did have some neuropathy in his feet, but we're not sure if it was from the DCA or
from the Chemo. Chemo definately has the side effect of hands and feet neuropathy. He
had terrific response to the DCA and went from a very grim prognosis to absolute
amazement from his Doctors. His Doctors stated that 'they rearly see results like this'.
The are so impressed that they want Tom to enter a plecebo study for a vaccine that will,
supposedly, prevent the tumors from returning.                                              Yes

 Jim we need urgent help Need more DCA; This is the message I get when I try to place

online at BuyDCA.com

Good luck




My doctor said that DCA was sold over the counter in Germany, was he correct?



 We'd love to be informed if you find more information. She is on a therapy currently that
should prolong her life, but not save it. It is important to know if the DCA and caffeine
together will provide better results. VERY IMPORTANT TO US!




IT'S A GREAT DAY TO BE ALIVE!


Can you recommend PAW PAW or turmeric to take with DCA?


Depending on the results of my next PSA test, I may stop DCA.




 Thank you for 'Being There' with the DCA. Toms prognosis was Very, very grim and how
he has left his doctors astonished. He and his family are full of joy and love of life. He
gives thanks to God daily.

 By the time Mum began to take the DCA the cancer had spread to the adrenal glands, liver
and bones after she had a hip operation. Even at such an advanced stage it would have
worked but Mum went downhill fast after her hip operation.


It seems to have reduced white blood cell count but swollen lymph glands have not gone down




my wife passed away in Dec. 2007 after being diagnosed in Dec. 2005


no change

so far it appears to be keeping cancer at bay. does not seem to be progressing



did not stop or reduce the growth

 cat was euthanased within a month of starting, but I feel it started way too late to be a realistic
test of the product.




the tumors have not changed size in i am not sure how long, but at least 4 months.




I think the cancer had progressed to far already. Too much damage to the liver.


Simple TAC (no contrast taken). Controlling MRI in one month time. Tumor stabile.

 There was some sign of hold/reduction immediately before transplant - but transplant took
place.



 Doing other things as well and TPSA has been stable at about 15 since beginning treatments,
leaning 'alternative' treatments.

 PSA was 10.7 ng/dl on 1/8/08 at start of DCA at 1 g/d.After 4weeks changed dose to 2 g/d. On
3/12/08 PSA was 11.7

It has been a diificult struggle with the effects of radiation. in hindsight we wish we

I'm afraid we didn't get mcuh chance to see if it had any effect.                            No

 Typically tired once increasing doses (though B1 vitamins and Alpha lipoic acid). Now
theraphy suspended for 1 week.                                                               Yes
 Very difficult to quantify the response, because the time between noticing the response
and the transplant was only a matter of weeks (no opportunity to monitor ongoing
response)                                                                                    Yes
 Would like to try it again but want to know if others have experienced any important side
effects like neuropathy symptoms. I did not give this stuff enough of a chance, often
forgetting to take a scheduled dose, etc. Developed some numbness in lips and
fingertips although that may well have been the cesium chloride that I was also taking. I
stopped everything when that happened.                                                       Yes

 She did take supplements before starting chemotherapy. Would not

gamolenic acid. Prior to cancer she had ME and the supplements

Lots of fresh veg, meat, few sweets, no caffiene, no alchohol, no junk foods. Everything

 I had trouble getting DCA through Australian customs and by the time Mum began to
take the DCA the cancer seemed to have spread too far and Mum was a lot weaker.
Mum had surgery on her hip and after this the cancer spread much quicker. I beleive
without the surgery when there may have been a different outcome.

 Although I have only taken DCA for a few months, I am hopeful and have just Ordered
another 100 gm. I will try black or green tea (cold) in future.




 I did not post my wife's passing on the website as I did not want to discourage cancer
patients watching it.




Thank you for keeping me posted !!!




 since the patient is cat i am unsure. She is an inside cat, and i have not seen any mice
in the house, but can't say for sure.



 I am very encouraged to see this sort of work going on. I hope the link with caffiene
turns out the be a significant factor in the use of DCA, and other drugs too.

 better include summary and conclusions (with full data available to researchers on
demand).




 I am dissapointed I did not get a better result. Would like to know results of patients with
prostate cancer taking DCA. I will try to learn more from Dr. Kahn. I hope you post the
results of this survey.

This is not for me personally. I took care of my mother and tried it, she was so far advanced
with the cancer I am not sure it had much of a chance to help her, only because of the stage it
was at!


It's to early to say!



 I was told by 3 different oncologists that Gemcidobine would not shrink my cancer but might
slow the growth for a few months.


in the 6 months, my mother was pretty well.




this type of brain cancer rarely has more than 2.5%survive rate over 5 ys.




 Patient was confused due morphine dosage, actual dosage uncertain. Late diagnosis, very
later application of DCA therapy



I Don't know.


not been on long enough

My PSA did not come down signicantalyy, at one stage it rose a little




there is no significant improvement, her condition is nearly the same, maybe is very little better

 My oncologist finally said the tumor shrinkage must be due to the DCA because the
tumor continues to shrink even tho I quit taking the chemo 2 1/2 months ago but
continued to take the DCA. The tumor has decreased from a small egg size to a marble
size.                                                                                     Yes

 I really do feel had my mother not been so far in advance of weight loss etc, that the
DCA could and would have helped. At most it gave me hope that at least there was
something I could look at in saving her life. She was just too far advanced I guess.




full data might interest a statistician looking for other clues??


thank you Jim, thank you for your help and your kindness

 Had very much hoped that DCA might have been of assistance however in retrospect
the diagnosis was very late as the case presented with atypical symptoms. It was
probably terminal well before it was diagnosed. Very unimpressed with Auckland
oncologists refusal to even monitor for tumour lysis syndrome under DCA and to only
offer palliative care with ineffectual, 'approved' treatments.

 tumor on the roof of my mouth I've had as long as I can remember. No doctor
wanted to do anything because of the nerves endings there. I was told that if it was
not cancerous it could turn that way at any time. I got very rough with it a number of
years ago and was able to drain it. What came out was a very dark liquid with a vile
taste and smell. This would always come back and I would drain it on average every
two years. About a year ago the discharge changed to a very sweet, pale yellow fatty
consisentcy (not liquid) right breast. I had a mastectomy done on my right breast
underneath the nipple. They did a biopsy - was not cancerous, again I was told it
could turn that way any time. This has started to grow again and has been active -
more so than the left breast. Left breast, smaller lump started to grow a couple of
years ago, but has remained stable for some time                                       two_months

 Mom passed away Aug 2, 2007. I really question myself - should she have had a higher
dose???????? I STILL beleive that DCA has major potential to help!!!




Joyce died some months ago, the cancer was advanced and aggressive, and she was elderly.

not enough time to assess response as she passed away

 Patient was within a hair of death early October...no more liquids for several days....no
feeding...then doctor gave strong dose of decadron to try to give him a few more days with
family ...got well enough to be able to drink a bit....and we also started him on DCA...within 3
days became extremely well and stayed unbelievably well for next 2.5 months...put on
=0lbs....gained a lot of function back even on paralyzed side....then at one point started to go
downhill (approx Dec 20....and just kept going down until he died...end of January.


I have periodically control at my oncoligist




she still has cancer



not included in trials

 No change in symptoms.
 he is on other meds, we have not gotten a follow up mri yet , however , he remains symptom

 I stared to take Dca to hopefully shrink the tumors. When I started with DCA
in week 1, I did not take with coffee, but approx. 1 hour before. At the end of
the week, I had developed a light slight itch mainly in the scalp, face and upper
body. I spoke to Vince Mitton (the firefighter) that weekend and he suggested
taking it in coffee, but use only twice a week. Week 2 I took no DCA week 3
Took DCA Mon. & Tues. only. Could not take it more if I wanted. I did not feel
well and the itch had become horrible. By Wednesday, moles started dropping
off my body. The itch continued until the end of the following week. I was
dropping 6-8 moles a day. The tumor under my left nipple is not noticable. The
one on the roof of my mouth is still there, but very much smaller. The one
under my right one is about 30% to 40% smaller. On Wednesday March 19th,
a very large mole on the back of my neck got very sore. It concerned me as it
was so active. that continued until yesterday, it dropped off                       no

       After Joyce's diagnosis was confirmed, the oncologist took 2 months to set up an
      appointment for an elderly woman with a particularly aggressive cancer. At the appt, they
      offered her palliative chemotherapy and nothing else, and only then would she consider
      DCA. The cancer was sufficiently advanced that it probably would not have made a
      difference, but even so I wish we'd had more time. She died within 7 months of the initial
      diagnosis.

n/a   thanks for your interest.

       I am still playing around dosage. I am currently taking a quarter teaspoon every 10 or 11
      days. I am going to up that a little. I don't know if DCA alone caused the moles to go or it
      worked with the other things I was taking. I do know when I took DCA in coffee, the
      change was a lot more dramatic



       Unable to answer many of questions as Don never got to be a part of the program.
      Good luck with DCA, there has to be something better than radiation and chemo. After
      all the MRI, exray testing, he was probably radioactive.

 Immunobiologist in Australia has highly
recommended taking DCA, although thought
we would have difficulty obtaining it. We were
lucky enough to receive some, however
immunobiologist wants Peter to continue with
current treatment before progressing onto
DCA. (He wants Peter to 'keep it up his sleeve'
ready to start when he feels he needs to.). We
will let you know the outcome when he starts
taking it.                                        none_taken         unsure

just started yesterday, April 9th.




 Lymph glands have markedly decreased; liver is soft and no longer distended; spleen is
softening. Lymphocytes are still high and neutrophils are still low.
 Because she is under no other treatement and was detirorating badly before she started DCA
and now she is very stale and even a bit better.




Too early to tell

 Improvement can be from chemo or combined effect, but the feeling is DCA works, mainly due
to quick response (in less then 2 months)
There is general clinical improvement with DCA and chemotherapy (permetrexed), particularly
a decrease of face and neck lymphoedema and the exillary lymph node has clinically
disappeared. An MRI will be performed in two or three weeks.
When I was in chemo (Doxil) treatments, my CA-125 continued to rise and got as high as 120
(normal is 35). When I stopped chemo in June 2007 an dstarted DCA, within 2 months my CA-
125 dropped to 59. (The Dr. said the Doxil effect must have been delayed.) The I continued to
take the DCA for several months and the CA-125 continued to drop - as far down as 44 (the
Dr. was baffled.) Then I ran out of DCA and quit taking it for a month or so and my CA-125
rose to 49. You sent more DCA and I took it again this time with Black Tea and b+ and the
next month my # dropped to 36 (almost normal.)

                          DCA Survey Results




 I sincerely hope that my information will be of benefit to others. Not mentioned in this
survey is the importance of prayer, by myself and from supportive friends and church.

 I would like to see you publish the survey information in two formats. Summaries and
conclusions for those who want to quickly read the stats about what is working and what
is not......and full data so people can see what others are doing/experiencing who have
the same diagnosis they do. We learn a lot from each other. Not everyone posts on the
blog and as long as you protect the privacy of people, their info is valuable for everyone.



 Brain and Lung tumors have been (successfully?) treated with chemo and readiation,
but tumor markers have started to creep up again, which is when we decided to start the
DCA since there is no "conventional" treatment scheduled unless we start seeing cancer
on future scans. We will have another chest CT scan and a Brain MRI in a couple of
months, both of which have been clean for over six month.s

 Hope that DCA is the cause of tumor shrinking and that it will continue. Doctors were
clear that there is no known cure for this stage of metastased cancer.

 Went to 30th annual Alt. Cancer Conference at Universal Burbank in Sept. Advice
was varied but great learning experience. I would urge all to attend who have
impared health and the big C. Next up in Sept. 2008                                   null
 Initial size of the metas was about 12 cm leading dimension, with hchemotherapy
(oxaliplatine via embolisation) reduced to about 7 cm but the effect of axalipaltin
reduced significantly after 5th and 6th courses therefore it was stopped a month
before starting DCA                                                                   six_weeks

 Started DCA eights months after biochemical failure following RT and 27 months
ADT2. When I started taking DCA, my PSADT was 24 days, which is considered
very dangerous. Molecular oncology testing found Circulating Tumor Cells in my
bloodstream, evidence of metastasis. Rectal bleeding. Unmistakable evidence of
metastasis in spine, numbness and increasing pain.                                    four_months

The CEA decreased from 107 (just before start of DCA) to 39 after one month on DCA

 I do feel a occasional sharp pain, which leads me to believe is is working. I will probably have a
doctor re test me in September to check on progress.




 PSADT of 24 days has stopped and is now stabilized at 1.97. Rectal bleeding has ceased.
Pain and numbness from spinal mets is gone. QOL excellent, no SE. I'm selecting 'tumor
shrank' because pain and numbness in spine is gone, but do not have scans to support this
statement.


Neuralogical improvement
Had more energy, appetite is back, no night sweats, low grade fever is gone.

 I take many supplements but none have ever had any effect on disease
progression as measured by ultrasensitive PSA score. For example
Swanson's spruce lignans reduced my DHT levels by 40% but this did
not slow PSADT. DCA is the only medication or treatment I am using
that would account for the sudden stop in disease progression. Perhaps
caffeine is a contributing factor.                                        yes

            many doctors refused to answer probability
            questions..through lots of internet reading we found many
            alternate protocals which seem to have a better chance of
            working with lower toxicity...thats how I found you and DCA
no    no    which I have not tried but contacted you some time ago.


             The surgery was in 2004 when initial cancer was deleted

            resection of the prostate, 2006. Discontinued ADT in August
            2007 and have taken nothing but supplements since. Began

 Tried Super Artemisinin for a week
recently... it made me tired/nauseous and I
had to stop. This use is too recent to reflect
in PSA scores. Just finished a ten day
course of tetracycline for Epididymitis, also
too recent to reflect in reported PSA
scores. Otherwise no medications, just
supplements.                                     yes       no         no


Lyrica, Nexium, Verapimil, Lasix, Decadron no              yes        yes

none noted havent used DCA but I am concerned about gait issues and nerve
damage and dizzyness or heart palpitations                                            no



sometimes tremor in hands                                                             no

 I am healing from 2 bad falls last year that injured my right leg. Since I started
the DCA, and also the MMS my leg seems to be healing faster rate.                     no



Confusion, forgetfulness                                                              yes


 I have had two episodes of hypoglycemia when overdoing the caffeine,
something I never experienced before taking DCA. Rectal bleeding following
radiation treatment is common with prostate cancer patients. In my case this
did not clear up until I started taking DCA, three years post-RT. This is an
interesting example of DCA healing tissue damage as well as putting late
stage cancer into remission.                                                          yes

 mice in antioch california..field mouse..also roof rats invaded house..we are looking for
risk factors..we do not smoke but work vegas show late at night which disturb sleep
habits melatonin and glutithione cycle.. We use make up. We do not drink. We live in
Vegas 90 mi. from the A bomb testing area. We are all subject to DU used in the wars in
Iraq and Bosnia 500,000 tons workth.. very bad stuff which is totally covered up by the
MIComples. Bad news for us all as we are probably bathed in the stuff. dneial is not an
option. Hence use of Zeolite to detox...gets rid of DU and heavy metals...maybe a cure
for Gulf War syndrome...google it to see how much and real costs of DU=depleased
Uranium. Mouse is news to me...however, both Zeolite and MMS are reputed to rid the
system of viruses. Maybe a Rife pulser might also work here if one could find a
reputable builder and was cheaper. Feel free to use any of the comments and sorry to
be so long winded... just have researched a lot of stuff on the web maybe 1000 hrs and
read a lot. Graduated UCB 1980 with some science background. Alternative cancer
conference in LA in Sept is a good place to hear and see people who are of an open
mind and have similar experiences with the various treatments and such.


 I think both forms should be available the full data and summary for all patients divided
by type of the cancer.


 Is there anyone who is using Jim Tassano version of DCA been healed ?
 My dad has some serious side-effects. Especially the confusion, forgetfulness and
sleepyness are really serious. He is a high-educated man, but he sometimes forgets the
most simple things now. He NEVER had that before. It's not all the time, but a few times
a day.
