What alternative clinics or strategies should be taken into account for pancreatic cancer Patients ?
Because cancer is directly associated with aging I would like to ask in this forum, what are some of the alternative clinics and treatment strategies I could look into, regarding pancreatic cancer. There are a lot of studies on PubMed regarding metformin, rapamycin, fisetin, in cell lines, and in patients. I have a family member that has relapsed from pancreatic cancer, and I'm trying to collect the best actionable information. I would welcome any tips of clinical trials or any other information that you guys could point me to. Thanks
Sorry to hear that. You can compile a doc like this. (50 pages of articles about "kidney cancer <bla>"). I actually strongly encourage compiling a doc like this, and research the supplements listed in this doc via "pancreatic cancer curcumin" etc Google searches. In a nutshell,
i) There's observational evidence that Metformin, Statins increase your chances of survival against a variety of cancers. Those are some of the first things to research and consider.
ii) Weekly Rapamycin, I believe, shouldn't hurt. Evorilimus is an FDA approved drug for many cancers including pancreatic cancer. Weekly rapamycin should supress mTOR and improve anti-cancer, immunity I believe. You can get a prescription from an anti-aging Dr (even online) or try to order overseas (I couldn't).
iii) Consult with careoncology.com (telemedicine Dr in USA to get prescriptions for metformin, statin, mebendazole etc).
iv) A bunch of supplements (probably curcumin and others) and other drugs like aspirin (anti-metastatic effects) , 20mg melatonin, Vit D, etc. I'd research each of them.
v) LDN may be something to consider. The evidence base is weaker but some interesting anecdotal examples. Very safe. ldndirect.com for online (legit) prescription.
vi) Become a member of Jane McLelland Off Label Drugs (Facebook group), check out things like my cancer story rocks (blog + FB group), Chris beat cancer (book + FB group etc).
vii) CBD and full spectrum oil have ardent supporters, and some anectodal evidence.
Just sharing what I know. Hope this helps. Please research for your particular condition and/or consult with an MD.
Because this is a ton of work, I can see that finding a clinic who's done this work for you would be awesome.
1) careoncology is a starting point, but their treatment will probably be limited to metfomin, statin, antibiotic, de-wormer, anti-histamine, medicinal mushrooms, melatonin. I guess it's a good start.
2) This is another doc (they do liquid biopsies, plus probably a bunch of other things).

I haven't used their services. So I'm not super sure what treatment options they offer.

Studies of IV vitamin C alone
Two studies found that patients who received IV vitamin C had better quality of life and fewer side effects than those who did not.
In a study of healthy volunteers and cancer patients, vitamin C was shown to be safe at doses up to 1.5 g/kg in patients who do not have kidney stones, other kidney diseases, or G6PD deficiency. Studies have also shown that vitamin C levels in the blood are higher when given by IV than when taken by mouth, and last for more than 4 hours

Apigenin in cancer therapy: anti-cancer effects and mechanisms of actio
Apigenin is a common dietary flavonoid that is abundantly present in many fruits, vegetables and Chinese medicinal herbs and serves multiple physiological functions, such as strong anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial and antiviral activities and blood pressure reduction.
"Apigenin and cancer"
Scientists from the UK’s Rothamsted Research and cancer biologists from the University of Kent have now discovered another chemical in willow trees with plenty of potential. Called miyabeacin, the researchers are particularly excited about how it might prove useful in treating cancers resistant to existing drugs.
"miyabeacin and cancer"
The drug *tepoxalin*, for example, which was originally developed for use in people but later approved for treating osteoarthritis in dogs, worked by attacking a target called MDR1 that’s expressed on the surface of cells and protects them from chemotherapy.
Corsello said cancer patients who develop resistance to chemotherapy often have high levels of this protein.
*Antabuse*, a drug approved to treat alcohol dependence, showed activity in cancers that lack a portion of chromosome 16, which commonly occurs in some breast cancers.
Other drugs showing anti-cancer properties included a compound originally developed to treat diabetes called *vanadium, and levonorgestrel*, a hormone used in contraceptives.

I wouldn't hold my breath on rapamycin, metformin or anything else mentioned with a relapse of pancreatic cancer.
