One of the often asked questions of our library staff after reading the two articles on the internet, Cancer Smart Bomb, Part I (www.mwt.net/~drbrewer/canart1.htm), and Cancer Smart Bomb, Part II (www.mwt.net/~drbrewer/canart2.htm),is about how much follow-up we have on patients taking artemisinin as part of a nutritional support program for various kinds of cancer. Unfortunately, the answer is “not very much”. We have received, and continue to receive numerous initial inquiries, but very few result responses.
RESPONSE TO ART: First of all, readers need to be reminded that even in the original test tube (in vitro) studies, artemisinin, like all compounds, works more effectively with certain cancers. To reiterate, test tube studies demonstrated that it is most effective against leukemia, colon cancer, and then demonstrates varying degree of activity against many other cancers, including: melanoma, breast, ovarian, prostate, central nervous system and renal cell carcinomas. So the first potential misunderstanding can occur with someone not really looking at the research results for their kind of cancer.
DOSAGE TO TAKE: Secondly, there is still no definitive decision on what dosage of artemisinin to take. People call asking for specific dosage recommendations for them or for their pets, which we cannot give. No one is absolutely sure of what dosage to take. Different doctors may recommend different dosages and different combinations of the three ART compounds, artemisinin, artemesin, artemeter, although artemisinin is probably the most often used.
