Canine Lymphoma

Canine Lymphoma


This is important information for families dealing with cancers in humans and animals (this includes canine lymphoma).

Recent medical research studies at a Canadian University have confirmed they (scientists) believe they understand the cause of cancer!  This is a huge step towards finding an effective treatment for fighting cancers such as canine lymphoma!

Canine Lymphoma

DCA Alternative Cancer Treatment

After years of research and testing, scientists have finally concluded that one of the causes of cancerous cells are a result of normal cells failing to complete their normal life cycle and die so new, healthy cells can replace them.  The end results are cancers such as canine lymphoma.  The entire process of replacing old cells with newer and healthier cells, which is called “cell death” or “apoptosis,”  is controlled by the mitochondria.  When the mitochondria doesn’t not act as it is suppose to and fails to direct the cell to die off, the old cell essentially becomes “immortal” and continues to live.  When the old cells accumulate, the patient becomes increasingly unwell until fatal levels are reached.

What can be done with this information?

Recent medical trials have proven significant results from the use of Sodium Dichloroacetate (DCA).  DCA use with various cancers such as canine lymphoma have resulted in significant shrinkage of tumor size and mass, reversal of illness, remission, increased health and vitality, and clean health tests.

In a study conducted by Canadian researchers led by Dr. Evangelos Michelakis (from the University of Alberta) they transplanted tumor cells into rats to see if what the effects of DCA would have.  After 3 weeks of treating the cancer with DCA diluted in water, the progress of the disease had stopped, and in fact the tumor masses had decreased by 70%!  Previously beliefs that they mitochondria had been damaged suggests that they were more likely temporarily inactive and that DCA treatments can reactivate them.  Dr. Dario Altieri, the director of the Cancer Center at the University of Massachusetts Medical School believes that though this type of treatment we may gain control over tumors, stop their progression, and destroy them (or at least make them more vulnerable to other forms of therapy).

What does this mean for canine lymphoma?  It means HOPE.  Canine lymphoma doesn’t necessarily have to mean a death sentence to our faithful companions.  PureDCA can be an effective treatment for canine lymphoma.

Despite promising results such as these, private pharmaceutical companies are not interested in conducting clinical trials to treat cancers like canine lymphoma.  Why?  DCA is a simple molecule and as such it can not be patented, therefore it can not bring profit.  Only through private funding has human trials been conducted (September 2007 by Canadian researchers) in which an article in a reputable periodical called “Nature” was released.
