My mom has just been diagnosed with secondary liver cancer, she is not eligible for surgery thus she began some standard protocol based chemiotherapy. I came across ICHT therapy that is administered in Italy. Does anyone have information (or experience) to share about this therapy or any other. Would be much appreciated.

Hi Ginny, My mom also has been diagnosed with secondary liver cancer. Although she is eligible for surgery, we are seriously considering the ICHT therapy in Italy. I've been talking with the patient Coordinator (Charles Field) from the ICHT clinic. I also talked to 2 patients that went through the protocol available at this clinic. These two men were given no hope with chemotherapy. One patient had metastases to the liver from Colon and now has close to complete remission in the liver. Second patient has cleared his liver from cancer but not the lungs (harder to treat cancer in the lungs with ICHT). I am still trying to find more about this ICHT because it sounds to good to be true. IT costs 40K$ US for 2 weeks of treatment. They have provided me with studies conducted in WURZBURG university in germany that seems to indicate that it works. The reason it is in Europe is because they use DNP (2.4 Dinitrophenol) as an uncoupling agent which is illegal in North America. Let me know if you've found anything else on your side. Courage and determination! Kind Regards, Sandman

My boyfriend was diagnosed with secondary liver cancer 41/2 years ago and it has now returned for the second time. I would be very interested in getting information about ICHT treatment. Could someone please provide an address or web site. If you or someone you know has had the treatment any information that you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and God Bless.
