Glioblastoma Prognosis – New Hope With DCA Treatment

New information just released about glioblastoma prognosis & new treatment options. On of the more promising glioblastoma and malignant astrocytoma treatment options introduces a very old compound called dichloroacetate. Dichloroacetate (or DCA as it is commonly called) as been in use for years to treat a rare genetic disorder called lactic acidosis. This condition is a mitochondrial problem. DCA ‘fixes’ the mitochondria in lactic acidosis patients.

It is now believed that cancer’s underlying cause may also be related to problems with the mitochondria. If this is the case it seems to follow that DCA may help treat cancer patients. Google ‘dichloroacetate’ and start reading. There is a large body of information and legitimate scientific papers on the relationship between dichloroacetate and cancer.

You can now buy DCA at No prescription is needed and it is relatively inexpensive. Treatment cost can be as low as $5 per day.

Doctors say,  ”Glioblastoma Prognosis is not good”. Wikipedia says, “Glioblastoma multiforme (aka “GBM”) is the most aggressive and common type of brain tumor (in humans)… most prevalent form of primary brain tumor, occuring in only 2–3 cases per 100,000 people in Europe and North America.

Testimonial Received June 16 2015: This is NOT for glioblastoma, it is however a person who found out about how useful DCA can be for cancer tumors and tried it on her cat. This is true and not made up. Name withheld for privacy reasons. This was unsolicited, the person was so happy with the results of the DCA in eliminating cancer that they sent us this message:

Message Body:
> I would like to thank you making this product avaiable.  My feline Mickey was diagnosed with Andenocarcinoma – nasal tumor.  The specialist said the cancer was non-responsive to chemotherapy & radiation was the only treatment opotion.  The prognosis was 1-3 months without radiation & potentially 12 months with radiation

We began treatment on 4/21/15  DCA & B1 twice a day for 5 days with weekends off.  He had 4 weeks of treatment – there are no visable signs of any tumor – the eye & nose malformation are GONE, and he is fabulous!

> His blood results are normal, kidney/ liver function are perfect.  He did have a reaction to the B1  – which was managed by discontinuing it & reduction of daily dose.   Mickey thanks you  & his humans are GRATEFUL

Glioblastoma Prognosis

Conventional treatment options are:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Corticosteroids
  • Radiosurgery
  • Radiation
  • Antiangiogenic Therapy
  • Surgery

Glioblastoma prognosis is generally not very positive. This particular form of cancer is usually very aggressive and fast moving. Additionaly, the location (the brain) may make surgery a very risky option. Many drugs can not get into the area of the brain where the tumor resides. DCA however is a very small molecule and can get into some areas other treatments can not. Brainstem gliomas are about the only cancer with a worse prognosis than glioblastoma.

What makes cancer cells different and how can we kill them.

This is how dichloroacetate kills cancer cells. DCA reactivates the self destruct mechanism in sick cells so they die off, effectively killing cancerous tumors.

Glioblastoma prognosis is usually given in months – not years.  Here is a short list of brain cancer symptoms.

The information states that glioblastoma prognosis using conventional treatments is poor but it does not say anything about glioblastoma prognosis using DCA. DCA is also known as sodium dichloroacetate, NaDCA, and dichloroacetate. This is not a drug – so no doctors or pharmacists will prescribe it – it is a simple, unpatentable molecule.

Representatives from the University of Alberta (UA) in Canada claimed 2007 that it is possible to use DCA as a cure for various forms of cancer. One of the professors from the abovementioned University PROVED that DCA helps with regression of lung and breast cancers, as well as brain tumors (among others).

The research journal “Cancer Cell” published by the researchers from University of Alberta (including cardiologist, Dr. Evangelos Michelakis, and Dr. Sebastien Bonnet) highlights the very positive results. This research can drastically improve glioblastoma prognosis and the severity of its symptoms.

Because DCA is a simple, small molecule it is able to cross the blood-brain barrier when many other treatments have a molecular size too large to pass through – this alone improves the glioblastoma prognosis.

Otto Warburg, a German biochemist, won a Nobel Prize for discovering, in 1930, that tumor cells were a product of metabolic disorder. The mitochondria begin using decomposed glucose for energy rather than oxygen.

Dr. Michelakis, the Canadian Researcher, took this 80 year old finding and attempted to restore the functioning of the mitochondria to the affected cells. He used dichloroacetate (DCA) on cancer cells in rats and discovered that the restoration of the damaged mitochondria,  caused the tumor mass to shrink  by 70%  in just three weeks. Unlike other cancer therapies,  the DCA therapy only worked on the cancer cells and let the healthy cells unchanged.

50 volunteers with glioblastoma multiforme and wanting to improve their glioblastoma prognosis  participated in the University trials. A March 2008 article in a respected periodical “Nature”, indicating that DCA works on the same biochemical trials as pyruvate kinase, which is responsible for control over means of conversion of glucose oxygen or oxygen free. According to commentators, DCA seems to switch back the cellular biochemical trails to oxygen breathing.
