    I came accross “The DCA Site” which includes a chat room dedicated to DCA, you may be interested:

    By the way it seems like the Alberta team is going straight into stage 3 clinical trials (I guess the previous useage of this drug for metabolic disorders means that Stages 1 and 2 aren’t necessary).

    I did not see that interview. Thank you for posting the link!

    It certainly seems like the researchers are closing in on finding the silver bullet. I hope it’s for this cancer, as well as the other GI cancers.

    Many thanks for bringing this to our attention. It looks like a very promising development. It’s interesting that there have been a couple of other potential “silver bullet” therapies hitting the news in the past 2 months (I’m thinking of the P53 gene therapy in China and the genetically modified virus therapy in Oxford UK). And there is DC immunotherapy (which is still experimental but which I’m currently having). I get the feeling that in a few years time there really will be that silver bullet, the only question is whether existing sufferers can survive long enough to benefit.

    Coming back to DCA, did you watch the CNN interview ? I came accross this link from another poster on this site but I can’t find the post any more – anyway here’s the link:

    And there is a patent application on file directed toward the administration of dichloroacetate for treatment of cancer:

    I haven’t done any research on this, but I thought I’d share this article: http://www.newscientist.com/channel/health/mg19325874.700-cheap-safe-drug-kills-most-cancers.html
