my new radiation oncologist just gave me a script for Trental (Pentoxifylline), and instructed taking it with Vitamin E to break up scar tissue in the throat.
getting home and looking this stuff up, I started wondering. I don't suffer from the common usages listed: obstructed arteries in the limbs, neuropathy, vascular dementia, peyronie's disease, alcoholic liver disease... not yet, anyway.
CONCLUSION: The Pentoxifylline-Vit E combination reversed human chronic radiotherapy damage and, because no other treatment is presently available for RIF, should be considered as a therapeutic measure.
Note: "RIF" is Radiation-Induced Fibrosis.
Anybody with experience of this treatment? thanks!
