IV Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is widely found in nature and is a cheap and readily available chemical compound with many applications. At low concentrations in cells, it is important to maintain a range of normal cellular functions. At higher concentrations in the body, hydrogen peroxide can trigger apoptosis, a type of programmed cell death, which could be used to treat cancer, as well as acting as a source of oxygen and free radicals that can enhance the effect of radiotherapy. A small clinical trial showed that injecting a solution of hydrogen peroxide into tumors could kill cancer cells and also make them more sensitive to radiotherapy. Twelve patients with inoperable breast cancer who were treated at The Royal Marsden were given injections of the hydrogen peroxide mixture directly into their tumors, before receiving standard radiotherapy. The study showed that the injections were safe to be given to patients, and blood samples showed markers linked to cancer control and cell death. Hydrogen peroxide makes cancer cells more sensitive to radiotherapy thereby killing more cancer cells.
