Supplements with Intravenous Vitamin C

This is the area that I do not understand. I hope it is well described in the protocols used by the doctors practitioners. But anyway Dr. Drisko mentions that the presense of the suppliments is greately affecting the efectivenes of the i.v. vitamin C. I still have to find what substances are to be used.

1. Study in Puertorico. 53:57. mentiones that they are trying to enhance the intravenous vitamin C effectiveness by supplementing advanced forms of oral vitmain C, like Bion-C, and Lipospheric C (the liposome-coated form of Vitamin C), also Alpha Lipoic Acid.
2. K-R ALA likely THE BEST form of R lipoic acid! http://www.geronova.com/krala.htm
4. Its effects appear to be enhanced by weekly injections of large doses of vitamin B12, (hydroxycobalamin 1000 micrograms), which forms cobalt ascorbate, another benevolent non-toxic, but tumour cytotoxic, compound, or in combination with vitamin K (specifically vitamin K3, though K1 is also efficacious), and Lipoic Acid, (300mg oral, twice daily.) Lipoic Acid recycles the Vitamin C to keep the cytotoxic dose more constantly in the body for longer periods. http://www.canceraction.org.gg/inext.htm, http://www.alternativehealth.co.nz/cancer/vitciv3.htm
5. Lipoic acid - (Bio-Communications Research Institute - 2001) - The researchers conclude that it may not be possible to kill enough cancer cells by vitamin C infusion. However, they discovered that vitamin-K and, in particular, lipoic acid were highly efficient in killing colon cancer cells. Using a 10:1 ratio of vitamin C to lipoic acid had a synergistic effect and this mixture killed 50 per cent of all cancer cells at a concentration of only 4.5 mM. The researchers conclude that it would be feasible to obtain this concentration by intravenous infusion and urge further work to investigate the use of a combination of vitamin C and lipoic acid as an anti-cancer agent in humans. Casciari, J.J., et al. Cytotoxicity of ascorbate, lipoic acid, and other antioxidants in hollow fibre in vitro tumours. British Journal of Cancer, Vol. 84, No. 11, June 1, 2001, pp. 1544-50. http://www.yourhealthbase.com/database/a119d.htm
6. Dr Julian Kenyon (The Dove Clinic for Integrated Medicine, London & Winchester). "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.. Concurrently with the high dose intravenous vitamin C, we use supplements, the most important of which is lipoic acid. Lipoic acid has been found to enhance the cancer killing effect of vitamin C, and the mechanism for this is unknown. http://www.canceractive.com/page.php?n=470

6. Lipoic acid. Administering a synergistically effective concentration of lipoic acid or its salt in combination with ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) or its salt, wherein said cancer is sensitive to said combination, and wherein the combination is in a ratio of lipoic acid to ascorbic acid of about 1:10 to about 1:3500, and wherein the action of the lipoic acid potentiates the action of the ascorbic acid. (US Patent 2002/09/10: "Treatment of cancer using lipoic acid in combination with ascorbic acid") http://www.patentstorm.us/patents/6448287-claims.html

7. Due to the problematic nature of maintaining high plasma vitamin C levels over time Riodan, et/al, found that lipoic acid (a water and lipid soluble antioxidant that recycles vitamin C) can enhance toxic effects of vitamin C on tumors. At a concentration of 10:1, vitamin C to lipoic acid, the effective dose of vitamin C necessary to kill 50% of tumor cells was reduced by approximately 1/7th. http://smartlifeforum.org/2004/11/newsletter.html
8. Constant oral Vitamin C doses - to maintain Vitamin C levels in the blod, so cancer cell would not develop resistance. "Intravenous infusions of sodium ascorbate, in combination with vitamin K or alpha-lipoic acid, will kill cancer cells. However, intermittent treatments might cause the cancer cells to become resistant. In microevolutionary terms, if the therapy selects tumour cells for resistance to redox-induced apoptosis, then the gain in life expectancy might be limited. One strategy to avoid such resistance would be to combine intravenous infusions with frequent large oral doses of vitamin C, to maintain high blood levels. Such a regime is needed to establish a dynamic flow of ascorbate through the body,15 using intakes close to bowel tolerance levels. This therapy might include a synergistic agent, such as alpha-lipoic acid or, perhaps, motexafin gadolinium. The aim would be to keep the cancer under consistent redox pressure. http://www.newmediaexplorer.org/chris/2006/10/09/conquering_cancer_through_vitamin_c_other_antioxidants.htm
9. 714X treatement:excellent results being obtained for many different types of cancer using Intravenous Vitamin C/Lipoic Acid/714X treatments. At one of these alternative offices I have been receiving Vitamin C intravenously; along with 714X and Lipoic acid. Today, three months later, my PSA reading was 1.1". http://www.cancercompass.com/message-board/message/all,11116,0.htm
10. "Oral therapy.. We suggest the use of natural vitamin C, as L-ascorbate, for oral administration, as it is more available to cells. Liposomal preparations may enhance the effectiveness of oral vitamin C. In addition, R-alphalipoic acid increases the cytotoxic effectiveness of ascorbate, by a factor of more than five. Like ascorbate, it is safe for healthy cells. Oral therapies that combine ascorbic and alpha-lipoic acids move the achievable plasma levels towards the cytotoxic range.**** Sustained blood levels of L-ascorbate and R-alpha-lipoic acid will lead to accumulation of high concentrations within tumours. Experimental data suggest an intake of R-alpha-lipoic of at least 10% of the ascorbate intake - 100mg or more for each gram of vitamin C. R-alpha-lipoic acid has low toxicity, although safety data on high doses over extended periods is not available. On current evidence, a combination of vitamin C and alpha-lipoic acid is the least toxic approach to oral cancer therapy. ****A one millimolar concentration of ascorbate is at the beginning of the cytotoxic dose response curve for ascorbic acid.
Alternatively, vitamin K3’ or another of the redox-cycling quinones, could be used in place of R-alpha-lipoic acid; these are also synergistic with ascorbate. The combination of vitamins C and K3 is 10 to 50 times more effective against cancer than is either agent alone.854 Vitamin K3 may be more effective than alpha-lipoic acid, but is also more toxic and requires careful administration. Once again, evidence indicates that levels sufficient to kill many types of cancer could be generated using oral doses. In addition, it is possible to vary the administration of these treatments; for example a period with vitamin C and K3 could be followed by a period with ascorbate and alpha-lipoic acid. Periods of vitamin C and vitamin E succinate might also be employed.
11. "Vitamin K3 and alpha-lipoic acid each increase the cancer killing effectiveness of vitamin C".
12. Imm-Kine is another patented formula by the founder and president of the Aidan Clinic in Tempe, Arizona, Neil Riordan http://northfieldclinic.net/IntravenousVitaminC/ Intravenous Vitamin C in labs, even at not achievable in human blood concentrations of 700mgs kills only 2 layers untill hollow fiber tumor model. The rest of the work is thought is done by the imune system. The Imm-Kine strengtens the immune system. One way to avoid any dangerous levels is by using another invention of the Aidan Clinic: IVC-Max.
IVC-Max was designed to make intravenous vitamin C work even better. They have documented their successes at the Aidan Clinic, and using the IVC-Max, to get the same "kill rate" in the hollow fiber tumor model that was realized at 700mgs/deciliter they had to use only 120mgs/deciliter.
13. MarianUK - "(I chatted to Dr Cathcart and Dr Hickey and Dr Roberts plus used the Kansas University protocol) If you add K3 and r-ala you can get a much higher saturation level with smaller amounts of IVSA and it will stay in your system longer. Don't forget your bindweed Vascustatin and imm-kine. The IVSA only kills around 65% of the cancer cells, leaving the more aggressive ones behind.(Hickney and Roberts) so you need your immune system to be in a good position to help to deal with the rest. These products really worked for me. They help to reduce vascular growth to the tumour.[READ ALL TEXT]" http://www.cancercompass.com/message-board/message/all,7419,0.htm
14. R-ALA (best R lipoic acid product) http://www.geronova.com/krala.htm K-R ALA likely THE BEST form of R lipoic acid!
15. Dr. Drisko: Dr. Q. I found a medical professional willing to do the Vitamin C infusions, but they want to make additions such as B vitamins. Is that okay? A. Medical professionals administering intravenous vitamin C should follow the protocol. Additions, such as B vitamins, may reduce the formation of Hydrogen Peroxide, which is the chemotherapeutic agent formed by Iv Vit C. http://integrativemed.kumc.edu/ivvitaminc.htm

17. Contents of the Intravenous Vitamin C and Mineral Infusions at Carolina Center for Integrative Medicine: "IV include ascorbic acid, calcium gluconate, magnesium sulfate, B-complex, pyridoxine (B6), hydroxycobalamin (B12), folic acid, pantothenic Acid (B-5), manganese, selenium, zinc, and sodium bicarbonate. This is added to 500cc sterile water and infused over three hours. http://www.carolinacenter.com/ivvitamininfusions.php
18. "He had about 12 weeks of weekly Intravenous Vitamin C/ Lipoic Acid infusions along with a 21 day course of daily injections of 714X. He did take one injection of Lupron at the beginning of these treatments. Today he has no symptoms of dis ease. He feels strong and healthy, takes no pain meds, has resumed all daily activities and his scans reflect this amazing change in his health. The oncologists who did his scans for him told him he should just keep up what he is doing. http://www.cancercompass.com/message-board/message/all,20005,0.htm
19. "..At the Institute, our intravenous infusions consist of not only vitamin C, but also other antioxidants such as intravenous vitamin E, glutathione, and alpha lipoic acid. These antioxidants work synergistically and increase the effectiveness of vitamin C. Oral supplementation, especially between infusion days, has been found to be a very helpful adjunct to the intravenous infusions. The list of oral supplements can be significant and play an important role in successful cancer treatment." http://www.cancercompass.com/message-board/message/all,20005,0.htm
