Yamaguchi K. abstract here
- 60 cases of metastatic cancer.
- Didn’t work much in lung cancer
- Worked well in breast and prostate cancer patients
- 72% improvement with stopped or reduced painkillers lasting 3 month
- Repeated doses could be used but decrease of hemoglobin, WBC, and platelets could be an issue
- Contraindicated in Rapidly progressive disease cases, radiculopathy cases, and soft tissue invasion.
Comment – have a breast cancer metastatic case that was told they don’t use it in breast cancer – maybe they should reconsider.
