Cancer: Intravenous Vitamin C Effective Treatment

Studies during the 1970s first suggested administration of high doses of
ascorbate might provide a clinical benefit for treating cancer, but later
studies using the same high doses found no benefit.

However, researchers now say the original studies used intravenous and oral
ascorbate, while subsequent studies used only oral administration.
Recognizing those differences might account for the disparate clinical outcomes, Mark
Levine and colleagues at the National Institutes of Health reexamined
intravenous ascorbate therapy in cultured cancer cell lines.

The researchers found ascorbate killed cancer cells at concentrations that
would only be achievable through intravenous infusion. Normal cells were not
affected by ascorbate at any concentration.

Additionally, the scientists report ascorbate treatment led to the formation
of hydrogen peroxide, a chemical that can kill cells, suggesting a potential
mechanism for the therapy.

The research appears in this week’s online, early edition of the Proceedings
of the National Academy of Sciences

End of Jonathan’s comment.

We should also make a distinction between ascorbic acid (generally called
vitamin C) and mineral ascorbates, that is vitamin C bound to a mineral such as
calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium. This latter one is the form utilized
by the human body. Since intravenous vitamin C is always in ascorbate form,
perhaps that could explain why a difference in efficacy is observed between
oral and the intravenous vitamin C.

According to Hickey, vitamin C has an extremely short half life in the body
-around 30 minutes – so a constant supply, either by intravenous drip or by
multiple doses during the whole day, is important to obtain the full
beneficial effect.

Intravenously administered vitamin C as cancer therapy: three cases

Vitamin C: Cancer cure?

Is mainstream medical science ignoring an inexpensive, painless, readily
available cure for cancer? Mark Levine mulls this loaded question. The
government nutrition researcher has published new evidence that suggests vitamin C can
work like chemotherapy – only better. But so far, he hasn’t been able to
interest cancer experts in conducting the kind of conclusive studies that, one
way or the other, would advance treatment.
