Non Recurrance Strategy

The Western/Eastern Clinic I go to suggested the following protocoll as part of the non recurrence strategy for the next two years after it has been established that the treatment was successful.

Low dose Naltrexone, followed by DCA, followed by Cimitidine and finally Noscapine.

Have any of you heard of this or are doing something similar?

You mentioned a drug called Cimitidine--do you mean Cimetidine? If so, this is the same as Tagamet, which is a drug used to treat peptic ulcers. I don't see how that can prevent anal cancer.
