New Cancer Treatment Techniques Offer Hope to Patients Fighting Deadly Tumors

Dr. Mark Rosenberg, Medical Director of the Institute for Healthy Aging and Director of the Integrative Cancer Therapies Fellowship with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, announced the preliminary findings of a novel technique for treating advanced-stage cancer. Using a process that Dr. Rosenberg calls, "Cancer pH Manipulation Therapy," he was able to completely normalize tumor markers in four weeks in a patient with metastatic endometrial carcinoma without the use of chemotherapy. Dr. Rosenberg has begun treating a second patient with this therapy, who has been diagnosed with stage IIIC primary peritoneal carcinoma. Her tumor marker had been rapidly rising prior to Dr. Rosenberg's treatment. Using his protocol, Dr. Rosenberg achieved a 40% reduction in tumor markers in just two weeks. Read more...

 
 
 

Mark Rosenberg, M.D.

Dr. Rosenberg has been involved with drug research since 1991. Having studied the mechanisms of cancer treatment failure, the following concepts have become apparent to Dr. Rosenberg. There are many substances, such as various chemotherapies, that are toxic to cancer cells in vitro (outside of the body, in a culture medium).

These therapies, however, are more often than not, ineffective in vivo (inside the body). Why are these therapies ineffective in humans?

  1. Most, if not all cancers, are propagated by cancer stem cells. The bulk of a tumor consists of cancer cells that are not reproducing, or self-propagating. Chemotherapy, not only does not kill cancer stem cells (it only affects the non-reproducing cells), it tends to produce resistance in cancer stem cells.

  2. Cancer stem cells are constantly mutating. When chemotherapy elicits a temporary response (by killing the non-dividing cells), the "remission" is short-lived. The reason is that the cancer stem cells quickly mutate resulting in a more aggressive cancer that no longer responds to that chemotherapy.

  3. Blood supply to most tumors is poor, causing parts of the tumors to become hypoxic (low oxygen content) and acidic. These conditions promote aggressiveness and metastasis. In addition, because of inadequate blood supply, much of the tumor will not even get perfused with the intended chemotherapy.

  4. Cancer is the interaction and communication between mutated cancer stem cells and its natural environment. The natural environment consists of the bone marrow (where the immune system resides), the milieu directly outside the cancer cells, and the energy supply to the tumors. Chemotherapy and radiation targets the cancer cells, while ignoring the environment. As long as the environment remains unaltered, the cancer cells will continue to communicate and propagate cancer.

Dr. Rosenberg has concentrated his efforts on altering the cancer environment, while blocking as many pathways of cancer growth as possible. His goal: to convert an acutely progressive terminal disease into a chronic disease that can be managed indefinitely.

Dr. Rosenberg recently appeared on Fox News for inducing remission on a patient with metastatic lung cancer (to liver and spine) that was refractory to chemotherapy.
