4-MU (4-Methylumbelliferone)

In April, 2015, the Journal of the National Cancer Institute carried an article regarding the non-toxic dietary supplement 4-MU that was found to be "highly effective in both preventing and treating prostate cancer".  4-MU "blocks...the development, growth and metastasis of prostate cancer".  The results "were simply amazing". 

I have tried to find and purchase this supplement with no success.  Am interested if anyone knows more about it.  I'm headed to Europe in October and would like to purchase it if possible.  The tiny conspiracy theorist in me wonders if we haven't heard more about it because it doesn't produce a profit for pharmaceutical companies.

  • Oops.  I forgot to mention that the article said this was a common dietary supplement in Europe and Asia. 

  • I think the published studies so far are only on mice. Hopefully, someone is moving forward on this.

  • On 4MU since April last year until very recently.

    No positive effect, even at huge doses.

    Went from CTC of zero to 19, now suffering increasing pain, PSA, LDH, and alkaline phosphatase. ECOG went from 0 to 2 in six months. Progressive degeneration on all fronts, increased number and size of metastases, Provenge, Zytiga, and Taxotere failure.

    PSA rise now parabolic.

    For about 3 months I increased the dose to 4 times daily, a 6400 mg total daily dose, hoping for something since I had so much on hand and was progressing so fast.

    Apparently 4MU is yet another effective drug for mouse cancer. I wonder that it didn't cause early failure of my other treatments.

    Of course, your mileage may vary. If interested, Google "moncoinsante.com" and switch to English, US$, enter "Cantabiline" and choose FedEx for shipping to avoid a customs declaration. For some reason most credit cards won't allow purchases from that portal, so be ready to use Paypal.

    Good luck.

  • Thanks for your reply.  I'm sorry it wasn't the answer for you.  Have you exhausted all the standard medical approaches?

  • Still have Xtandi, Jevtana, and Radium left I guess. 

    Impending death doesn't bother me as much as it used to.

    ADT and chemo, now those suck.

    However you slice it, shuffling along as a lame, bald eunuch in a diaper isn't living.

  • You and I have a few things in common.  I'm a veteran also...Navy...and from your dates of service I'm guessing we're not too far apart in age.  We're both guys, obviously, and we've both been waylaid by this disease that totally sucks.  There's no way to sugar coat it but I suspect the same is true for all cancers.   We both have incontinence problems and we're both not the sex machines we used to be (or like to think we were). 

    However, I am an eternal optimist.  You say this isn't living.  I say its a different way of living.  We both have additional treatments to try and I know men...perhaps you do, too... who have lived with this crap disease for 30 years and wake up every morning with a smile on their face, thankful for a new day and new opportunities.  

    I'm not saying I don't miss the guy I was but I'm not ready to throw in the towel yet.  And I don't want you to, either.  We're both still kicking and have as much as ever to offer others.  And others still love us just as much as ever.  Don't fool yourself, they do.  And we owe it to them to be their rocks because they're suffering right along with us. 

    Friend, I only mean to extend my hand and offer hope.   As long as we're breathing we always have that.  Besides, we're veterans and are a bit tougher for the experience.  I'm rootin' for you and you're in my prayers, if that means anything to you.  It sure doesn't hurt.       

  • Thanks. Your message meant more to me than you could imagine.

  • I make you so right you have said it all I spent all my young life in the merchant navy going back to the 50,s when I joined up as a boy I have seen plenty I still have more to see hopefully , again who knows what,s around the corner , we don't that's for sure I to am sick of this disease and how it,s taken over my life but I do my best to face it with a laugh and a joke not always possible but there is only one way and that's forward mates best regards Dave

  • Have it shipped by postal from the French/Belgium pharmacy as FedEx will send it to the fda before delivery. It is not an approved drug by fda so you won't get it past the Feds. Unless you get  us Doctor prescription for it. 

  • Thank you.  Based on the other replies I received I think I'll put this on the back burner for awhile.  Glad to know it works for mice, though.  Mickey can rest easy.   

  • Here is a website that sells 4-MU  selleckchem.com/products/4-...

    I would do some further research before ordering this. I just did a quick search to find a supplier.
