"A physician once told me that nothing arouses so much bitter enmity and heated arguments among his colleagues, as the subject of cancer. This may be due to the guilty recollections of cancer victims expiring who might have been saved; or of the memories of patients pronounced hopelessly ill who recovered under the treatment of a 'quack,' or who miraculously lived without further treatment. Possibly these guilt reactions and the remorse over exhausting the money of patients and their relatives in futile cancer treatments, account for some of these psychological manifestations which are expressed in hostility and attack."

Cancer Part 1: The History and Rationale
BSW (c) 2010

On July 27, 1921, Canadian scientists Frederick Banting and Charles Best first isolated insulin and within a year, the first human sufferers of diabetes were receiving insulin treatments. Lilly began manufacturing large doses of purified insulin in November 1922. ―In 1926, Donato Perez Garcia had 10 units of insulin injected intravenously."

BSW (c) 2010

The Development of the IPT Concept
Donato Perez Garcia, Sr., MD (1896 - 1971) first conceived of the therapy in Mexico City in 1926 and named it ―Cellular Therapy to Change the Biophysical Biochemical Constants of the Blood.‖ Treated infectious illnesses: malaria, syphilis and poliomyelitis before focusing on cancer. His son, Donato Perez Garcia y Bellon, MD (1930 - 2000) and and grandson - Donato Perez Garcia, Jr., MD (1957 - ) followed in his footsteps. Steven Ayre, MD learned about the therapy in 1975 and became the teacher of American doctors. Bradford Weeks, M.D. learned IPT in 2001 from Dr. Ayre and is a certified clinical instructor in IPT for doctors wishing to learn this methodology.
BSW (c) 2010

From the book, Terapia Celular or Cellular Cancer Therapy through Modification of Blood Physico-Chemical Constants or Donatian Therapy - written by Donato I & II:
According to Terapia Celullar, an animal study with dogs was done in 1930 to test absorption of anti-syphilis drugs, namely mercury and Neosalvarsan Prior to this, the doctor had given himself intramuscular injections.
BSW (c) 2010

A human study with neurosyphillis patients was conducted in Austin State Hospital in 1937, the results of which are discussed in a letter by Dr. Garcia dated September 1937. On April 10, 1944, TIME magazine published an article on Dr. Garcia's "Insulin Shock Therapy," in which a visit to the San Diego Naval Hospital is discussed, where Dr. Garcia treated malaria and rheumatic fever patients. ―We‘d like him to come back and do it again.‖

Conventional Chemotherapy Pros: Powerful drugs Effective at killing cancer

Cons:
Powerful drugs Effective at killing patients while killing cancer cells Cost (average oncologist mark up = 400%) Effectiveness rate = 2.1% (!!!)
BSW (c) 2010

Problems with Conventional Chemotherapy
1) Adequate intra-cellular concentrations requires high dose, systemic administration of these drugs. 2) Lack of tissue specificity for drugs.

3) Consequence: Multiple tissue and organ toxicity (―side-effects‖).
4) Note the tragic and little reported facts that 1) chemotherapy and radiation do NOT kill stem cells and 2) 99% of the cells in a cancerous tumor are NON-cancerous
BSW (c) 2010

FACT: ~ 2% of all cancers respond to chemotherapy (!!!??) FACT: Conventional Chemotherapy hurts more than it helps.

OPINION: “The overall contribution of curative and adjuvant cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adults was estimated to be 2.3% in Australia and 2.1% in the USA . . . chemotherapy only makes a minor contribution to cancer survival. To justify the continued funding and availability of drugs used in cytotoxic chemotherapy, a rigorous evaluation of the costeffectiveness and impact on quality of life is urgently required.”
Morgan G, Ward R, Barton M. in his article: The contribution of cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adult malignancies. See Clin Oncol (R Coll Radiol). 2004 Dec;16(8):549-60.)
BSW (c) 2010

Why Do Cancer Cells Resist Chemotherapy?
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. resistant cells survive and reproduce ―survival of the fittest‖; cancer cells mutate and replicate gene amplification: hundreds of copies of genes which produce chemoinactivating proteins (inc. MDR gene expression). P-glycoprotein pump which pumps drug out of cells (inc. MDR expression). cancer cells inactivate the pump which brings the drugs into the cells (e.g. decreased expression folate transporter with MTX). cancer cells ―learn‖ to repair DNA damage caused by some chemo drugs (inc. nucleoside excision repair with alkylating agents and platinum drugs; inc. O alkyl-guanine alkyl transferase with nitrosureas, procarbazine, and temozolamide). cancer cells ―learn‖ to inactivate chemo drugs or decrease their activation (decreased folypolyglutamyl synthetase with MTX or decreased deoxycytidine kinase with cytosine arabinoside, fludarabine phosphate, and cladrabine). increased detoxification (increased glutathione or GSH tranferase)

What would be the Elements of an Ideal Solution to this Chemotherapy Dilemma?
1) To develop a method of differentiating the cancer cell
population from the normal cell population. 2) To deliver lowered doses of drug more specifically into this differentiated cancer cell population. 3) To maintain and /or enhance chemotherapy’s cellkilling effectiveness in cancer cells. 4) To reduce / avoid chemo side effects in normal cells.

Insulin Potentiation Therapy
Utilizes Insulin to Modify Endogenous Mechanisms of Malignancy Selectively Targets Cancer Cells Enhances Anti-cancer Drug Effects Very Low Doses of Chemotherapeutic Agents Almost Completely Eliminates Dose Related Side Effects.

BSW (c) 2010

Insulin Receptors (IRs) & Cancer Cells
# of IRs on cancer cells is much greater than nl cells IR count correlates with tumor size and histological grading. The binding capacity and affinity for 125-I labeled insulin was found to be 9 times as great in breast cancer cells than normal cells. IRs do not down regulate as readily and can have 1000 fold resistance to receptor down-regulation.
BSW (c) 2010

Mammals have 100 to 100,000 insulin receptors per cell. Cancer cells have from 6 to 17 times more IRs per cell than non-cancer cells.
BSW (c) 2010

Insulin & Cancer Cells
1) Insulin stimulates cell replication. 2) Insulin is produced by cancer cells (i.e. biopsy specimens produce insulin) 3) Cytoplasmic B-subunit of Insulin has tyrosine kinase activity (oncogene product) 4) insulin resistance increases cancer risk.
BSW (c) 2010

Elevated IGF levels Hodgkin‘s & Non-Hodgkin‘s Lymphoma Renal Adenocarcinoma Cervical & Uterine Carcinoma Breast, Colon, and Lung Carcinoma Lymphoblastic leukemia Amount of IGFs correlates with stage Cancer cells have up to 10 times more IGF receptors on their surfaces. Treatment causes the IGF levels to decrease.
BSW (c) 2010

Insulin and IGF-1 operate autonomously at the cellular level within tumors to promote tumor growth.

IGF-1 is the major anabolic hormone while insulin regulates and provides the fuel for these processes.

BSW (c) 2010

Rapidly growing tumors are more sensitive to chemotherapy than slow-growing tumors. Studies at George Washington University, National Cancer Institute and M.D. Anderson Hospital & Tumor Institute tested and proved that insulin does potentiate the effects of chemotherapy.

BSW (c) 2010

“…Hence, the results of our experiments indicate that tumor-specific growth stimulatory hormones can be utilized to overcome the cyto-kinetic drug resistance. …thereby render subpopulations of tumor cells vulnerable to the lethal effects of cell cycle-active drugs that otherwise would have remained inert to their effects and might have constituted a potential source of late treatment failure.‖

BSW (c) 2010

After IV Insulin: Membrane Effect Improved drug penetration into cancer cells Use lower doses to reduce side effects Shorten treatment cycle intervals Metabolic Effect Increased proportion in S phase. Increase rate of cell kill per cycle Cellular Differentiation Effect Excess IR & IGF-R on cancer cells Specifically targets cancer ―smart bomb‖ Relative sparing of normal tissue from toxicity
BSW (c) 2010

In vitro, after adding insulin to an asynchronous population of breast cancer cells, the S phase fraction was 66% compared to only 37% in the controls.

The effect of insulin on chemotherapeutic drug sensitivity in human esophageal and lung cancer cells
JIAO Shun-Chang, HUANG Jing,

Conclusion As a reversible metabolic promoter, insulin enhances the cytotoxity of the chemotherapeutic agents. It is possible to increase the growth and metabolism of cancer cells first, in order to enhance the chemosensibility, and then administer chemotherapeutic agents, thus improving their therapeutic effects.

Insulin fuels Cancer
Cancer cells eat glucose Cancer cells have 6x > insulin receptors Insulin allows greater membrane permeability for glucose Cancer cells have 10x > IGF-1 receptors IGF-1 increases S phase (growth phase) Synergetic membrane & metabolic effect Elegant medicine: think PO vs. IV ABX
BSW (c) 2010

Summary: Biochemistry of Insulin and Cancer
Glucose is the ONLY fuel cancer cells can use Cancer cells have 6 to 17x > IRs than regular cells Cancer cells have 10 x > IGF-1 Rs than regular cells INS+IR increases delta-9-desaturase which makes cancer cells become permeable IGF-1 doubles number of cancer cells in S-phase; increasing vulnerability to chemotherapy drugs Cancer cells are selectively targeted so lower doses of chemo drugs preserves immune function Appetite improves, weight and euphoria increase
BSW (c) 2010

Insulin Potentiation Therapy
IPT is a chemotherapy-based protocol using insulin as a biologic response modifier of the endogenous mechanisms of malignancy. In IPT, insulin is used to selectively target cancer cells with lowered doses of chemotherapy drugs, enhancing drug effects on these cells and, at the same time, effectively reducing doserelated chemotherapy side effects on host normal tissues.

The Mechanisms of Malignancy

(cont.)

The two work together in an autocrine and/or paracrine manner and in a complementary fashion, with IGF-I being the major anabolic hormone responsible for mediating messages about growth in the tumor, while insulin regulates and provides the fuel for these processes.

Haelan 915 – Benefits
1) Apoptosis is stimulated: Clinical Implication: Apoptosis is the healthy, appropriate cells death which occurs at the right times after a cell has lived it full normal life. In contrast, cancer cells resist apoptosis and live eternally thereby killing the cancer patient.

BSW (c) 2010

Haelan 915 – Benefits (cont.)
2) DNA Repair is enhanced. Clinical Implication: DNA damage is the hallmark of cancer. If DNA is repaired a cell can stop being cancerous. 3) Reactivates P-53 Tumor Suppressor Gene Clinical Implication: This raises levels of P-21 in breast, ovarian and prostate cancer cell and thereby suppresses cancer and allows apoptosis.
BSW (c) 2010

Haelan 915 – Benefits (cont.)
4)P21 gene activity is increased Clinical Implication: This lifesaving gene is derived from the anti-cancer gene P53 and allows to cancer call death 5) Anti-angiogenesis Clinical Implication: Angiogenesis is the creation of a blood supply to tissues low in oxygen. Without this new blood supply, cancer cells can not grow. Avastin stops angiogenesis by destroying VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) systemically which is fatal. Haelan 951 stops angiogenesis without destroying VEGF.
BSW (c) 2010

Haelan 915 – Benefits (cont.)
6) Reduces exosomes Clinical Implication: These are particles that inhibit immune defense against cancer, they inhibit both NK cell function and gamma interferon. 7) Increases BAX 500% compared with the drug Doxorubicin (in cases of breast cancer) Clinical Implication: This is a gene which kills cancer cells via allowing apoptosis.

BSW (c) 2010

Haelan 915 – Benefits (cont.)
8) Decreases BCL2 200% - in comparison to Doxorubicin (in cases of breast cancer) Clinical Implication: This is a gene which allows cancer cells to thrive by evading apoptosis. 9) Improves Anti-apoptotic Ratio of BAX/BCL2 Clinical Implication: This means that the genes are now fighting cancer by enhancing apoptosis.

BSW (c) 2010

Haelan 915 – Benefits (cont.)
10) Reduces Estrogen Levels Clinical Implication: This is an anti-cancer effect since it also reduces ER-a.

11) Increases Estrogen receptor-beta receptors Clinical Implication: These kill cancers by increasing the amount of natural chemotoxic agents like 2-methoxyestradiol as well as their delivery to the cancer cell.

BSW (c) 2010

Haelan 915 – Benefits (cont.)
12) Decreases Estrogen receptor-alpha receptors – ER-a Clinical Implication: These receptors allow cancer cells to thrive and metastasize so they must be suppressed for your health. 13) Improves Ratio- ER-a/ER-b Clinical Implication: This allows for appropriate apoptosis and restoration of low cancer risk.

BSW (c) 2010

Haelan 915 – Benefits (cont.)
14) Decreases the matrix metalloproteinases enzyme Clinical Implication: This enzyme erodes collagen surrounding the tumor and frees cancer stem cells to spread through out the body creating metastatic disease. 15) Produces Anti-Cancer metabolites Clinical Implication: Some of the most important of these are 3-Beta Adiol and 2-methoxyestradiol which hunt down and kill cancer stem cells.
BSW (c) 2010

Haelan 915 – Benefits (cont.)
16) Prevents Protein Calorie Malnutrition (cachexia or starvation) Clinical Implication: This reversal of cachexia is life-saving since cachexia kills 80% of cancer patients. We must at all costs avoid the situation where you starve (no appetite!) while the cancer gorges itself.

BSW (c) 2010

Haelan 915 – Benefits (cont.)
17) Decreases Viral and Bacterial Burdens Clinical Implication: Haelan 951 cleans house and allows the immune system to work without distraction. 18) Increases function of GADPH gene expression Clinical Implication: This gene expression is one way to measure cancer die off.
BSW (c) 2010

Haelan 915 – Benefits (cont.)
19) Shuts Down NF-kB Mutation Pathway Clinical Implication: Cancer cells are smart and they try to mutate using the NF-kB pathway in order to escape death when the immune system or the chemotherapy is applied. 20) Enhances tumor necrosis factor (TNF) Clinical Implication: TNF is a pillar of our immune system required to fight cancer.

BSW (c) 2010

Haelan 915 – Benefits (cont.)
21) Non-Specific Immune Stimulation Increased 400% Clinical Implication: the symbiosis of taking a product offering the 5 super foods (Haelan 951) and the myriad benefits described above amount to a huge immune boost. It increases macrophage phagocytosis by three-fold and double the number of active macrophages.

BSW (c) 2010

Haelan 915 – Benefits (cont.)
22) Gives clearer margins for surgical removal of tumors Clinical Implication: If surgery is indicated, the goal is 1) to remove the cancerous cells and 2) to cut away leaving a ―clean margin‖ meaning leaving no residual cells. 23) Overcomes depression and improves quality of life Clinical Implication: When the soul and spirit are less troubled, the immune system thrives.

VITAMIN D3
―A preponderance of evidence from the best observational studies... has led to the conclusion that public health action is needed. Primary prevention of these cancers has been largely neglected, but we now have proof that the incidence of colon, breast and ovarian cancer can be reduced dramatically by increasing the public's intake of vitamin D."
Professor Cedric Garland the University of San Diego, California after reviewing 63 recent studies on vitamin D and cancer.

Vitamin C plus Vitamin K3
1. Vitamin K3 alone has demonstrated anti-tumor activity against multiple rodent and human cancer cell lines. 2. Synergism noted with doxorubicin, 5 FU, vinblastine, vincristine, mitomycin, bleomycin, cisplatin, mitoxanthrone, MTX, and many others.

3. Phase I trials in humans 400-500 mg/day showed no toxicity in combination with mitomycin. Phase II trials of IV K3 (2.5 gms/m2) with mitomycin showed objective response but 30% BSW 2010 showed hemolysis (Gold,(c)Cancer Treat Rep, 1986)

Vitamin C Plus Vitamin K3 cont‘d
1) Vit C and K3 combination showed synergistic activity in a 100/1 ratio in breast, endometrial and oral epidermoid carcinoma cell lines in concentrations 10-50 times lower than for the individual vitamins (Noto, et al, Cancer, 1989). 2) Co administration of C plus K3 with adriamycin, bleomycin, mitomycin C, vincristine or cisplatin increased growth inhibitory effect by 3-14 fold
(Buc Calderone, et al., Curr. Med. Chem. 2002).

BSW (c) 2010

Vit C and K3: The Mechanism of Action
High levels act via oxidative stress and are cytotoxic via necrosis or autoschizis. Low levels kill by a non-oxidative mechanism involving transcription factors to produce autochizis and apoptosis.

BSW (c) 2010

Vitamin C: Cancer‘s ―silver bullet‖
1. Vitamin C alone has been found to have cytotoxic effects against most cancer cell lines in vitro. These in vitro concentrations are easily achievable in vivo with IV C. The mechanism appears to be intracellular accumulation of H2O2 with low catalase enzyme activity native to cancer cells. (Dr. Mark Levine, NIH division of Diabetes and
Kidney diseases).

2.

Vit C has also been found to potentiate the effects of chemotherapy drugs (Zaizen, et al., J cancer Res Lin Oncol,
1986; Prasad, et al, Pol J Pharmacol and Pharm, 1992; Koch and Biaglow, J Cell Physiol, 1978) and radiation therapy (Hanck, Prog Clin Biol Res, 1988).

Oxygen breathing may be a cheaper and safer alternative to exogenous erythropoietin (EPO) Recently discovered ―normobaric oxygen paradox‖ demonstrates that renal tissue can be stimulated to increase EPO production via a simple pattern of oxygen breathing at normal atmospheric pressures. This leads directly to the hypothesis that oxygen breathing may provide chemotherapy patients with a convenient and inexpensive alternative to ESAs. Stimulating endogenous EPO production eliminates the small risk of immune system reaction associated with ESAs. Further, the endogenous physiological EPO doses provided by this method may be safer, in terms of cancer mortality, than the exogenous pharmacological doses inherent in ESA administration. Author: R.

November 3, 2008 Dear Dr. Weeks, Attached is a record of my CEA results correlated with treatment modalities. IPT was very effective with no sideeffects and allowed my surgery to be minimal and now I feel fine. I have been keeping track of the billings for conventional treatments. The total for surgery and radiation treatment is in excess of $150,000 but I do not have an exact figure. If I had accepted the chemotherapy that was repeatedly thrust upon me the bill would have been considerably higher. I am grateful to you and the pioneers who are practicing IPT.

2010 Follow-up of Case 3
―Dear Brad, It is good to hear from you. My health continues to be good and, considering all of the surgery, my energy and ability to function and work are good. My emotional health and sense of wellbeing are also good. IPT was a life saver.‖

―For health maintenance I take a daily dose of seawater mineral extract that I make, a tablespoon of wheat germ oil and 1,000 mg of vitamin C. On every day that the sun does not shine I take 10,000 IU of vitamin D-3. About once each week I take an Iodoral tablet. Each night before bed I take a 3 mg tablet of melatonin and 1.25 oz of rum. Once every 60 days I take San Pedro cactus extract. At the first sign of any serious physical problem I would not hesitate to began a course of MMS treatment. Have you noticed that MMS has now been suppressed by the FDA?‖

2) Antioxidants and immune enhancing protocols do not interfere with IPT but rather enhance benefit and are protective of healthy cells and vitality. 3) Patients find the experience not unpleasant (aside from the therapeutic moment of low blood sugar). 4) Side-effect free effective chemotherapy is here!

Summary and Invitation
Corrective Cancer Care with Insulin Potentiation Therapy
BSW (c) 2010

The Standard of Care is sub-therapeutic. Only 10% of conventional oncologists say they would take the medication they prescribe if they had cancer.

In contrast, 100% of IPT doctors would take their own medicine!

―Smart Bomb‖ effect: Excess of insulin-

sensitive receptors on human cancer cells causes predominance of insulin effect in cancer cells, sparing normal host tissues = INCREASED SAFETY
Synergy of insulin‘s membrane and metabolic effects enhances anticancer drug action in cancer cells = INCREASED EFFICACY
