New Cancer Treatment Achieves First Mesothelioma Success
Date:5/14/2009

well." The protocol is offered for qualifying patients with colon cancer, renal (kidney) cancer, pancreatic cancer, melanoma and certain sarcomas. It can be considered for other patients on a case-by-case basis.

The new treatment is simply an "off-label" combination of two existing medicines: lovastatin, typically used as a cholesterol lowering agent, and interferon. In 1998 Dr. Jeffrey Rubins and colleagues in Minneapolis demonstrated that lovastatin had a significant effect against mesothelioma cells in laboratory cultures. According to Dr. Cantrell, "The key to moving from the lab to success in humans has been taking a fresh look and finding the right medicines to combine. When we have administered a precisely timed regimen of low-dose interferon with lovastatin, the results have been surprising." NeoPlas Innovation patients often have seen the arrest of their cancers' growth and spread in as few as eight weeks of treatment. In many cases, patients have experienced active regression of tumors.

Fatigue is the most notable side effect of NeoPlas Innovation's cancer treatment. Most patients never experience effects commonly affiliated with chemotherapy or radiation (nausea, vomiting, hair loss, bone marrow suppression or immune system suppression). An experienced physician prescribes and monitors the outpatient treatment.

NeoPlas Innovation's web site, www.neoplas.org, provides complete information and an interactive screening tool for patients who are considering this treatment. The clinic can be reached at (615) 371-8100.

For an interview with Dr. Cantrell, call 615-371-8100.
