There are many kinds of cancers of the immune system, but one, Activated B-Cell Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma, or ABC-DLBCL, is particularly common and pernicious.

The combination of colloidal silver and inositol/IP6 will usually completely eliminate lymphomas in dogs - and without the side effects of mainstream cancer drugs. It's a good combo for humans too.

Tony, I saw your comment about Colloidal silver and I DO use it on my animals for infections quite often, but I am told not to use it for long-term use, as it is a heavy metal and as such, can accumulate in the body. I am not sure how safe it would be for an older dog with kidney problems.. Mind you, when it comes to cancer, it is worth-while trying all the alternative. Re this article, is it such good news on one hand and yet, ther is always a sting in the tail... Have the dogs been GIVEN cancer and then had the drugs tested on them, or are they put in a trial because of an existing lymphoma? Thanks suZanne, this article will give many people hope for the future. Noted.

Nicky, I read the full-text article and it refers to the the dogs used in in vivo tests as "client-owned" and "privately-owned", thus, ordinary pets diagnosed with lymphoma. They're also "actively recruiting dogs with ABC-DLBCL to a phase I dose escalation clinical trial" - sounds very much like the patients in the following trials will be voluntary pets, too. From previous studies it's known that NBD peptide is well tolerated, and in this trial it "did not cause any systemic toxicity", so it should be a relatively safe method of treatment.

Colloidal silver can be used as a topical antiseptic, but it's not safe or efficient when used internally, because it builds up in the tissues. But if you wish to spend the rest of your life looking like a Smurf, go ahead - if you don't mind more serious side effects, like neurotoxicity and death:Myoclonic status epilepticus following repeated oral ingestion of colloidal silver. Colloidal silver doesn't seem to be very effective antimicrobial even in vitro (Colloidal silver as an antimicrobial agent: fact or fiction?), and all the other claims of its effectiveness in various diseases are unsupported scientifically.

Inositol+IP6 treatment has shown promise in human trials, but as an adjuvant to chemotherapy - it doesn't cure cancer, but acts synergistically with standard chemotherapeutics and ameliorates their side effects. (Cancer Inhibition by Inositol Hexaphosphate (IP6) and Inositol: From Laboratory to Clinic)

And how do they know about this so-called Lymphoma Drug, because they experimented on the poor animals!

How many animals at this University of Pennsylvania have suffered and died.
True, I would want humans to be helped by this treatment. But my mind must wander back to cruelty, abuse and awful experimentation that I am so against. I know there is terrible suffering. PCRM is calling upon all university research programs to develop other effective models. What can I say? I am for humans, but I am for the animals, too. Abusive experimentation must stop.

Thanks, Pia, for clarifying that the test was used on dogs all ready suffering from lymphoma. This gives hope that a cure will be found, for dogs and humans.
