I originally landed in this forum because I was looking for patients using COC Protocol. We're interested in it as an extra arm of treatment. I also noticed discussions mentioning scepticism regarding repurposed drugs. Scepticism is a powerful tool, we should all apply it to our daily lives. Never take anything at face value.
So I have been reading this morning about Doxycycline and what maybe at action and how that could hurt 'all cancers'. Pub Med has lots of research papers on this.
It seems that it could affect cancer at a cellular level there is an investigation here for Stage I to III BC. The aim being to reduce MBC with post treatment cycles of Doxycycline.
Further more there is another research paper which cover the use of Doxycycline and Azithromycin (Both antibiotics) and Vitamin C to synergistically corrupt cancer cells and force them down a path towards a phenotype which can be exploited to starve cancer stem cells.
I wish I had listened more at school, this stuff really is amazing.
I thought this info might be useful to illustrate that these drugs are being researched right now and it's worth the effort to read these research papers.
