Default Cancer and Intravenous Vitamin C Therapy

Intravenous Vitamin C Therapy has had some success amongst cancer patients and the therapy used by this doctor, Dr Hugh Riordan, is being sponsored for a trial by the National Institutes of Health.

I would certainly like to meet or hear from someone who has used Vitamin C by IV and had success with cancer. My friend who had lung cancer used it and it did not work for her. She did her IV at home also through a central line. She is gone now.

Vitamin C IV therapy works on the principle that hydrogen peroxide is generated when vit c comes into contact with cancer cells so the principle is pretty much the same as oxygen therapies for cancer.
Pharmacologic ascorbic acid concentrations selectively kill cancer cells: Action as a pro-drug to deliver hydrogen peroxide to tissues
Human pharmacokinetics data indicate that i.v. ascorbic acid (ascorbate) in pharmacologic concentrations could have an unanticipated role in cancer treatment. Our goals here were to test whether ascorbate killed cancer cells selectively, and if so, to determine mechanisms, using clinically relevant conditions. Cell death in 10 cancer and 4 normal cell types was measured by using 1-h exposures. Normal cells were unaffected by 20 mM ascorbate, whereas 5 cancer lines had EC50 values of <4 mM, a concentration easily achievable i.v. Human lymphoma cells were studied in detail because of their sensitivity to ascorbate (EC50 of 0.5 mM) and suitability for addressing mechanisms. Extracellular but not intracellular ascorbate mediated cell death, which occurred by apoptosis and pyknosis/necrosis. Cell death was independent of metal chelators and absolutely dependent on H2O2 formation. Cell death from H2O2 added to cells was identical to that found when H2O2 was generated by ascorbate treatment. H2O2 generation was dependent on ascorbate concentration, incubation time, and the presence of 0.5-10% serum, and displayed a linear relationship with ascorbate radical formation. Although ascorbate addition to medium generated H2O2, ascorbate addition to blood generated no detectable H2O2 and only trace detectable ascorbate radical. Taken together, these data indicate that ascorbate at concentrations achieved only by i.v. administration may be a pro-drug for formation of H2O2, and that blood can be a delivery system of the pro-drug to tissues. These findings give plausibility to i.v. ascorbic acid in cancer treatment, and have unexpected implications for treatment of infections where H2O2 may be beneficial.
I dont believe that its a 'magic bullet' for cancer but the clinical trials will show how effective it is for certain cancers.

This is probably the definitive blog for Vitamin C IV information.
