Q: Have you had proven positive results for AML? Leah
A: Hello, Leah.
Yes, however, these people that had AML also took traditional chemotherapy. Acute myeloid leukemia is an aggressive cancer that needs to be closely monitored by doctors, because it can cause anemia (which makes you weak), trombocytopenia (which makes you prone to bleeding) and, most importantly, it causes an impaired immune response (which makes you prone to catching infections).
Therefore, we strongly advise every sufferer of acute myeloid leukemia to be monitored by their hematologist.
Theoretically, DCA should be beneficial for every type of cancer. In some cases, drugs such as DCA can help you maintain a longer remission. Some medications like fenbendazole can mix pretty well with Sodium dichloroacetate in order to maintain a cancer-free time period.
Sometimes, DCA can be the missing puzzle in the previous treatments that can finally help someone with AML achieve a lasting remission. The study explains instances like this in more detail: Perturbation of cellular oxidative state induced by dichloroacetate and arsenic trioxide for treatment of acute myeloid leukemia. Patients that cannot receive cytotoxic chemotherapy or have relapsed from remission could indeed benefit from the treatment of DCA.
Blood cancers are a difficult subject, however, we hope that our answer sheds more light on your journey.
