The action of mebendazole on cancer cells does not have much to do with it being a worm killer. Other meds and herbs that kill worms would be unlikely to work for cancer. Mebendazole damages tubulin in cancer cells. It interrupts the cell cycle before the cells go into mitosis. It also stimulates apoptosis, natural cell death. It also seems to block angeogenesis, meaning it stops blood vessel growth to tumors.
A 48-year-old man with adrenocortical carcinoma had disease progression with systemic therapies including mitotane, 5-fluorouracil, streptozotocin, bevacizumab, and external beam radiation therapy. Treatment with all chemotherapeutic drugs was ceased, and he was prescribed mebendazole, 100 mg twice daily, as a single agent. His metastases initially regressed and subsequently remained stable. While receiving mebendazole as a sole treatment for 19 months, his disease remained stable. He did not experience any clinically significant adverse effects, and his quality of life was satisfactory. His disease subsequently progressed after 24 months of mebendazole monotherapy.
This is the first report of using mebendazole as cancer treatment in a human patient.
he was prescribed single-agent mebendazole, 100 mg orally twice daily (a typical anthelmintic dosage)
I have a large tumor in my left breast which has continued to grow for the last two years despite many different alternative treatments. (Will not go into the long list now.) After reading several articles in the Grouppe Kurosawa Natural Medicines Public Blog, I have been taking cimetidine, 200 mg, 4 times a day on an empty stomach (CVS brand over the counter acid reducer) and mebendazole, 100 mg, 3 times a day on an empty stomach (prescription worm medicine). I did this for 6 weeks, took a week off, then have been doing it for another week and will continue. I do not know if this dosage is optimum or not. When I started, the breast was aching a lot (which I believe was the expanding tumor pressing on tissues) and had just started to have some stabbing pains occassionally. Within days of starting the cimetidine and mebendazole, all aches and pains in the breast ceased. The other thing I noticed is that the breast cooled to the touch; it had been noticibly warmer than the other breast. This makes sense if it is disrupting the formation of blood vessels which feed the tumor. I haven’t noticed any shrinkage of the tumor yet. I am continuing to take some other supplements but list is too long to post now. If there are more positive changes, I will post another message. Blessings to All.
Hello cheryl, The action of mebendazole (Vermox) on cancer cells does not have much to do with it being a worm killer. Other meds and herbs that kill worms would be unlikely to work for cancer.Mebendazole damages tubulin in cancer cells. It interrupts the cell cycle before the cells go into mitosis. It also stimulates apoptosis, natural cell death. It also seems to block angeogenesis, meaning it stops blood vessel growth to tumors. It has a synergistic effect with cimetadine (Tagamet). The cimetadine increases the half life of the mebendazole by blocking a liver enzyme that breaks it down. Cimetadine has immune boosting effects and also inhibits metastasis. Both drugs are fairly low with regard to side effects. Mebendazole only damages cancer cells while leaving normal cells undamaged. Cimetadine is “over the counter”. Mebendazole requires a prescription in the States, but is very easy to get through Canadian companies advertising on the net.

Have you ever heard of the Vitamin B17 OP? You can find it naturally in apricot seeds, and it's a natural cancer killer. But, the FDA banned it, and now we have sun dried apricots, which don't contain it. We are being poisoned by these people so they can reap the money in medication.
Heres a good video about B17. www.youtube.com...
