Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)
[LDN_Cancer] reports that the late Dr. Bernard Bihari treated approximately 450
patients with some form of cancer, with a 60% success rate, almost all of who had failed to
respond to standard treatments.
In particular, 5 patients with multiple myeloma appeared to be in remission.
In one case, the patient failed conventional chemotherapy, and bone marrow biopsy showed
20% replacement of normal marrow with myeloma cells. After starting LDN,
"there was a gradual normalization of all of his blood counts, as well as a drop in his
abnormal serum proteins from 12.6 to a normal level of 1.4.
Bone scans showed continued slow healing of affected bones, and two bone marrow biopsies
showed no sign of myeloma." The patient was lost to followup after 5 years.
Dr. Weyrich has been trained in the use of Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN).
However, Dr. Weyrich has not treated any cases of multiple myeloma with LDN.
