Intravenous Vitamin C Doses

The discussion of the doses. Some of the doses are used by many practitioners, some doses are used at the clinical trials (that by some extend cause the outcome results of the trial). Definitely the most interesting are the doses used by the suvivors.

1. Laboratory studies show that vitamin C kills cancer. There are three types of tumor models: the sparse model layer, the dense model layer, and the hollow fiber tumor model. Most of the solid tumors in the body are of the hollow fiber tumor model, with the sparse and dense models being found on the outer layers of the tumor. Studies show that plasma levels of just 200mgs/deciliter (one tenth of a liter) will kill all the cells in the dense and sparse models, but hardly touch the hollow fiber tumor model. At 700mgs/deciliter we get about 50% to 65% live cells remaining in the hollow fiber tumor model.
So, we know that these large doses of vitamin C are cytotoxic, or deadly, to cancer. However, it is hard to maintain this high plasma level of vitamin C and the level sought in IV C treatment is 400mgs/deciliter.
Now for those of you taking mega doses of vitamin C orally, you should know that the most you will ever get into your plasma is about 10mgs/deciliter. To get these higher levels, you must have vitamin C administered intravenously (through a needle directly into your vein).
2. patients will receive roughly 50 grams of intravenous IV at a rate of 1 gram per minute. High doses of vitamin C four times a day for four weeks. Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA). ,
3. Dr. Hugh Riordan of Kansas treated hundreds of cancer patients with doses of vitamin C up to 200,000 mg (200 grams) per day in infusions lasting 4-12 hours several times a week. He compiled a series of case histories documenting impressive responses, but passed recently before his work was generally acknowledged. IV vitamin C, when adminstered by a trained, experienced physician, is safe and well-tolerated, even at doses as high as 100,000 mg (100 grams) per day. Proper blood tests must be done to assure that it is well-tolerated, and the patient must be monitored. Doses must be gradually adjusted upward. Not all patients may be candidates for IV vitamin C. Vitamin C can be safely administered even while patients are undergoing chemo and radiation; in fact, the FDA-approved trial at Kansas University Medical Center explicitly permits the co-administration of vitamin C with conventional treatments.
4. We subsequently reported a case of resolution of bone metastases in a patient with primary breast cancer (1A) using infusions of 100 grams, once or twice per week (2).
5. In the CTCA study, the first cohort of 3 patients is being treated with 30 g/m2—approximately 50 g for an average-sized individual—vitaminC, infusions on 4 consecutive days per week for a period of 4 weeks.
6. If it is feasible to have a Hickman line put in the patient, extraordinary doses of vitamin C - anything between 50g to 100g, depending on the malignancy of the cancer, - can be self-administered at home on a daily to weekly basis over a period of months, stepping down or up in frequency according to the individual response.[]
7. The very large doses should also be built up to gradually over some days to establish good tolerance, starting at 15 grams for 1 or 2 sessions, then to 50 grams and, if necessary, to 100 grams.
8. (2008/02) NCT00626444: Drug: Intravenous vitamin C: Up to 100 gms of intravenous vitamin C, three times per week for 10 weeks.
9. To achieve this desired chemotherapeutic effect it has been found that a vitamin C blood plasma level of 400mg/dl should be attained immediately an infusion is finishing. To achieve this doses anywhere from 50 grams upwards is required - generally 75 - 100 grams although some patients are on higher doses. I would therefore recommend that all people considering this treatment come to the clinic in Auckland for several days so that the right level can be determined. Once this is established [grams required for required plasma] the clinic will write a letter of referral back to the patients local Doctor who will administer the treatments.
10. Dr Thomas Levy, (a doctor from Colorado, has painstakingly reviewed all of the research in his book Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins: Curing the Incurable). As Dr Klenner repeatedly described in his many papers, vitamin C must continue to be administered in appropriately high doses until a positive clinical response is seen, and then lower doses can be given. In other words, Dr Klenner would use whatever dose necessary to see a positive clinical response. This meant anything from 35 to 65 grams for a first dose, given intravenously. In terms of oral supplementation, take as much as you can tolerate, starting with 2 or 3 grams every three to four hours.
11. Clinical Trial at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and Jefferson's Kimmel Cancer Center, along with the National Institutes of Health, plan to begin enrollment within the next few weeks of 20 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma patients.. will be given varied intravenous doses of vitamin C three times a week during the study, expected to last from 4 to 6 months".,4670,VitaminCStudy,00.html)
12. Puertorico 100-125g (see conferences video section)
13. Dr Julian Kenyon (London) "Plasma levels of vitamin C between 300-400 milligrams per 100cc are required in order to kill significant numbers of cancer cells. This requires intravenous infusions of 75 grams of vitamin C, (in some cases less, depending on the size of the patient and the tumour cell mass), infused intravenously on a daily basis for three weeks in order to be able to attain these plasma levels. It's important to realise that the highest plasma level of vitamin C achievable in humans using oral supplementation is 4.5 milligrams per 100cc..
Our most common protocol is the use of 75 grams of vitamin C, in sterile water, with a number of minerals, particularly magnesium, zinc, chromium, selenium, B12 and some B vitamins.
The patient is infused over 2.5 hours daily for 3 weeks (excluding weekends). The vitamin C level at the end of the infusion course is tested and if this is sufficiently high then some significant tumour kill has happened. If it isn't, then this regime may have to be repeated.
15. Loretta Hill (43), 30 grams weekly for 4 years.
16. Bill Nath 30 grams intravenously, twice a week for three months, then every month or two for four years.
17. NDC 49072-039-50, Ascorbic Acid Injection, USP, Without preservative 500 mg/mL, Sterile dispensing vial not for direct infusion"
18. Intravenous vitamin C is typically used with patient while on chemotherapy and radiation. A typical cancer patient will receive 75-80grams of intravenous vitamin C 2-3 times a week.

I have hard to find (and use) veins and wonder if Vit C can be injected IM (intramuscularly) instead of IV or orally. Has anybody done that? Any advice is appreciated.

Hello. I did a lot of research about vitamin c iv injection. My grandfather had need of vitamin C injection and finally I found a supplier from whom to buy and now I'm stocked with vitamin C injection direct from them.
I will share their page maybe someone is in huge need.
