Re-Sensitize, Enhance Sensitivity of Lung Cancer to Chemotherapy

Curcumin sensitizes lung cancer (LC) to cisplatin, disulfiram re-sensitizes lung cancer to cisplatin- both non-conventional therapies increase the efficacy of lung cancer to cisplatin…

Einstein supposedly said that the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. My experience is that conventional oncology approaches lung cancer the same way over and over expecting something to improve.

Two of the articles below talk about evidence-based, non-conventional therapies- disulfiram and curcumin– that can enhance the anti-LC action of a standard-of-care LC chemotherapy regimen called cisplatin.

My point is that it makes sense to utilize surgical removal of as much of your LC as you can. Fine. It is the standard-of-care to then follow LC surgery with cisplatin. But too many lung cancer patients relapse after cisplatin therapy to not want to do something different.

Consider adding disulfiram and curcumin to your therapy plan.

I am a cancer survivor and cancer coach. It is my experience that cancer patients facing an aggressive, complicated cancer like lung cancer must enhance their standard-of-care therapies with evidence-based, non-conventional help.

I have remained in complete remission from my “incurable” cancer since ’99 by living an evidence-based, non-conventional, anti-cancer lifestyle. I supplement with Life Extension Super-Bio Curcumin because this brand of curcumin has been evaluated and approved by Consumerlab.com. Further this brand of curcumin has been shown to be much for bioavailable aka absorbed in the blood stream.

Have you been diagnosed with lung cancer? Please scroll down the page, post a question or comment and I will reply to you ASAP.

Thank you,

Alcohol Addiction Therapy Resensitizes Resistant NSCLC to Chemotherapy

“Scientists in Ireland have shown how a drug that has been prescribed for 60 years to treat alcohol addiction can also resensitize treatment-resistant non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) to chemotherapy…

“Its potential use may give chemotherapeutic drugs such as cisplatin a new lease of life in the treatment of resistant lung tumors…”


“When disulfiram creates complexes with metals (dithiocarbamate complexes), it is a proteasome inhibitor[10] and can represent a new approach to proteasome inhibition and a clinical trial of disulfiram as adjuvant against lung cancer is happening in Israel (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00312819).”

Curcumin sensitizes lung cancer cells to cisplatin-induced apoptosis through superoxide anion-mediated Bcl-2 degradation.

Curcumin was shown to induce superoxide anion generation, down-regulate anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 protein, and subsequently sensitize cells to cisplatin-induced apoptosis. Co-treatment of the cells with curcumin and cisplatin resulted in increased apoptosis and reversal of Bcl-2-mediated cisplatin resistance…”
