I thought that within this mailing-list some people might know what to think about the work of some people I’ve heard about:
Dr Berkson in Arizona indicates that he cured some persons with pancreatic cancer with injections of alpha lipoic acid and low-dose naltrexone:

Berkson, â€œThe long-term survival of a patient with pancreatic cancer with metastases to the liver after treatment with the intravenous Î±-lipoic acid/low-dose naltrexone protocol,â€ Integrative Cancer Therapies, vol. 5, no. 1, pp. 83â€“89, 2006.

Dr Schwarz in France (this is how I hear about it) indicates similar results in mice with cancers

They seem to think that forcing some metabolic changes in the body could greatly help it fight already largely developped cancers. I don’t know for Dr Berkson, but Dr Schwarz doesn’t say it is very efficient, rather that it is non-inefficient pist that should be tuned rather than ignored.
Their are criticized (some indicate that it is because the pharmaceutical companies are afraid to loose a lucrative business, sincerely I would be surprised of that explanation)
But since I hear about their work and that it is quite relevant with things at GRG I thought I should ask you.
All the best,
