The term "pharmaceutically acceptable" as used herein refers to the carrier, diluent or excipient that must be compatible with the other ingredients of the formulation and not deleterious to the recipient thereof.

As used herein, the term "treatment " or "treating" refers to administration of a compound of the present invention and includes (1) inhibiting the disease in an animal that is experiencing or displaying the pathology or symptomatology of the diseased (i.e., arresting further development of the pathology and/or symptomatology), or (2) ameliorating the disease in an animal that is experiencing or displaying the pathology or symptomatology of the diseased (i.e., reversing the pathology and/or symptomatology). The term "controlling" includes preventing treating, eradicating, ameliorating or otherwise reducing the severity of the condition being controlled.

The present invention describes new compositions and regimens for the treatment of malignant neoplasms. The treatment strategies are based on four hypotheses presented by the present inventors regarding characteristics of cancer cells and inherent metabolic deficiencies that permit the enlargement and spread of cancer cells. The hypotheses presented are presented herein below:

I. Defective immune surveillance function which fails to detect the presence of cancerous cells and fails to destroy them.

II. Cancer cells are able to survive and grow only in an acidic environment.

III. Cancer cells utilize anaerobic (no oxygen) glycolysis (breakdown of sugars) as their method of producing energy for sustained growth and metastatic spread. To achieve this state, the cancer cells produce substances which make the mitochondria (oxygen-utilizing metabolic organelles) inoperable and dormant.

IV. Cancer cells require a significant increase in blood supply in order to metabolize, enlarge, and spread. The tumors produce materials which stimulate vascular-endothelial-growth factor (VEGF) which is largely responsible for the formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis).

To address the defective immune surveillance system to cure the cancers the inventors suggest

Polymannan Extract (PME) i.v. injections. PME comprising an array of glucomannan polysaccharides derived from Aloe barbadensis Miller according to a previously patented method (U.S. Patent No. 6,083,508 (2000)) by the present inventors. The polysaccharides range in molecular size from about

100,000 Daltons to 10,000,000 Daltons. Some calcium and magnesium salts are also present which stabilize the product.1"3 Table 1 : Compositions and molecular weights of aloe polysaccharides having Mol. Wt's of 100,000 or greater.

The longer the polysaccharide chain and the greater the content of mannose, the greater the immunomodulatory activity of the preparations. The product is available as a sterile solution, 10 mg/mL, in 10 mL multidose vials.

Mechanism of Action of PME: PME, via its mannose moieties, binds to mannose receptors on the surface of the monocytes/macrophages, which thereupon induces the release of an array of cytocommunicators, including TNF-a, IL-β, INF-γ, IL-2, and IL-6.

Delineated Responses of Stimulated Cytocommunicators: a. Increased cell counts of monocytes/macrophages, b. Increased cytokine production, c. Increased expression of cellular surface molecules, d. Increased numbers of Natural Killer (NK) cells, e. Increased phagocytosis activity, f. Increased anti-viral activity, and g. Increased potent anti-tumor activity

Treatment Schedule: The patient initially undergoes daily intravenous administrations to determine the dosage to induce the "Physiological (Fever Response) reaction". When PME combines with receptors on the monocytes/macrophages and Tumor Necrosis Factor - Alpha and Interleukin 1 - Beta are released, this simulates what happens when a bacterial or viral organism invades the body and alerts the immune system response. The "Fever Response" is due to the resetting of the hypothalamic temperature-regulating centers so the body tries to retrain more heat and/or decrease heat loss from the body to elevate the body temperature, which is one of nature's most common responses, as increased body temperature may create an adverse environment for the invader. This is associated with feelings of chilliness, coldness, shivers, shakes, and occasionally even rigors depending upon the degree of response in a given patient.

On Day 1 , the patient receives 0.1 mL (equivalent to 1 mg PME) intravenously; on each succeeding day the dosage is increased by 0.1 mL until a dosage of 1.0 - 1.5 mL is reached. If the patient is relatively robust, the dosage schedule selected may be 0.1 mL, 0.3 mL, 0.5 mL, 0.75 mL, 1.0 mL, 1.25 mL and 1.5 mL on succeeding days. Once the Fever Response is observed, often that dosage is maintained on the two, three, or more days per week schedule. For mild disease states 2-3 injections per week are used; for moderate severity states, 3-4 injections per week are recommended; with severe, advanced cases, the injections may be given 5-6 times per week.

As there are constant variables going on in the patient, oftentimes the patient may react on one occasion and not on other occasions; the absence of a reaction does not mean the product is not working; it just means that the majority of binding sites available are occupied. Factors which influence the binding reactions include the white blood cell count, the differential (types of white cells present) count, number of mannose binding sites on the cells, etc. Once binding occurs, the influence on the white cell may last 12 or more hours.

Excess PME binds to a circulating Mannose-Binding Protein (MBP) which can provide an almost constant binding to the white cells, owing to the fact that the affinity of the PME to bind to the cells is far greater than the affinity of binding to this carrier protein.

The present inventors hypothesize that cancer cells are able to survive and grow only in an acidic environment. The inventors propose a treatment regimen wherein the pH (acid-alkali reaction) of arterial blood is kept nearly constant at 7.35, a mildly alkaline state by a carefully regulated sequence of physiological processes, but the pH in the interstitial fluid spaces, where the cells live, can be quite acidic. The tumors, themselves, produce acids derived from their metabolism to maintain their acid environment.

All foods which are ingested and metabolized leave either acidic or alkaline residues -the so-called acid ash or alkaline ash residue. The inventors aim to provide the maximum of alkaline residues, the alkaline ash diet is which is recommended to all cancer patients. In addition the inventors recommend taking about ½ tsp of NaHCC>3 solution with each meal.

Alkaline ash forming foods include alfalfa sprouts, artichokes, broccoli, cantaloupe, celeriac, cranberries, dates, flaxseed, huckleberries, lemons, almonds, apples (apple cider) apricots, bananas, beets, blackberries, blueberries, brussel sprouts, burdock cabbage, carob carrots, cauliflower, celery, chard, cherries, chives, coconut, cucumbers, currants, dandelion greens, dill, dock, endive, figs (dried), garlic, grapefruit, green beans, guava, irish moss, kelp, kohlrabi leeks, lettuce, lima beans, limes, loganberries, loquats, molasses, nectarines, oranges, pears, radishes, rutabagas, squash, vegetable oils, mango, melons, millet mint, mulberries, muskmelon, mustard greens, okra, olives, olive oil, onions, papaya, parsley, parsnips, peaches, persimmons, pineapple, plums, pumpkin, raisins, raspberries, rhubarb, romaine, sea grass, sorrell, soybeans, spinach, strawberries, swisschard, tangerines, turnips, water chestnuts, watercress, and watermelon.

Note that the meats, one of the major protein sources, are not on the list. It is permissible, however, for the patient to have one 3-ounce portion per day of beef, chicken, eggs, fish, pork, or turkey. One of the most important items is for the patient to drink lots of water, permitted fruit juices, etc.

Intravenous Sodium Bicarbonate Solution: Evidence is accruing that cancers are etiologically related to chronic fungal infections, e.g., Candida albicans. These etiological (causal) elements are killed by the administration of sterile, pyrogen-free sodium bicarbonate solution. The dose is 300 - 500 mL (depending upon bodyweight) of a 5% sodium bicarbonate solution given 3-5 times per week depending upon the severity of the problem. This treatment also assists in the maintenance of the alkaline milieu.

The inventors also hypothesize that the cancer cells make the normal mitochondrial cells inoperable and dormant for the growth and proliferation. Cancer cells, as well as all other abnormal cells in the body, are programmed for apoptosis (cell death). If one changes the metabolism from glycolysis to aerobic mitochondrial metabolism, the pre-programmed self destruction of the cell is initiated.

To counter this the inventors suggest reawakening and restarting the mitochondrial aerobic metabolism by the administration of dichloroacetate (DCA). DCA was widely used in the late 30's and 40's as an oral anti-inflammatory medication to treat arthritis. It was replaced by newer antiinflammatory agents and thus has not been used for years. An interesting corollary is that this agent was associated with possibly fewer undesirable side-effects than the currently widely used NSAIDS (Non-steroidal-anti-inflammatory-drugs). In large doses, however, DCA has been associated with peripheral neuropathy (numbness and tingling in hands and feet), but this can be prevented or moderated with lower dosages. The usual dosage of DCA is 10-15 mg/kg daily in divided (three) doses. To prevent neuropathic side effects, alpha lipoic acid (ALA) should be used as a supplement. The usual dosage of ALA is 100 mg three times daily with meals. If the dosage of DCA is 10 mg/kg or less, the incidence of peripheral neuropathy is significantly reduced.

According to the present inventors, cancer cells require a significant increase in blood supply in order to metabolize, enlarge, and spread. An interesting aberration is that the primary (mother) tumor often produces ANTI -angiogenic materials so that distant metastases are suppressed in their growth because they cannot develop the additional blood supply. This means that the usual MRI or PET scans see the mother tumor, but the very small, suppressed distant metastases do not appear on the scans, but may become a plethora of tumor sites once the major tumor is excised (debulking surgical procedure). In the not too distant past, this phenomenon (i.e. the removal of the primary tumor associated with the appearance of distant metastases on scans) was viewed as a worsening of the patient's condition. It is far easier to treat the small distant metastases with our treatment protocol as they are so much smaller, and the local tumor conditions are not overwhelming the immune system mechanisms.

Treatment: To prevent the growth of the requisite increase in blood vessels that the tumors require for growth and spread, it is necessary to administer anti-angiogenesis agents. A number of these agents have been described including the following: Artimesinin, Iodine, Tetrathiomolybdate (TTM), Carnivora (a preparation using, among other materials, a derivative of Venus Flytrap) which is claimed to be a potent immune stimulator as well as an anti-angiogenesis agent, Graviola (Annona muricata) which contains acetogenins which are potent inhibitors of enzyme processes found only in cancer cells but have to toxicity for normal healthy cells),Thalidomide,

However, the inventors describe a novel nutrient mixture, which is very effective in controlling VEGF and other angiogenic agents (see Table 2).4 Anti-angiogenesis nutrient mixture.

Vitamin C (Ascorbic acid, magnesium 700 mg

ascorbate, calcium ascorbate, and palmitic ascorbate)

L-Lysine 1,000 mg

L-Proline 750 mg

L-Arginine 500 mg

N-Acetyl Cysteine 200 mg

Green tea Extract 1000 mg

Total polyphenols 80%

Catechins 60%

EGCG 35%

Caffeine 1%

Minerals

Selenium 30 meg

Copper 2 mg

Manganese 1 mg

The Vitamin C in the novel formulation of the instant invention inhibits all division and growth of cancer cells through the production of hydrogen peroxide.5 The Green tea extract controls angiogenesis and metastases.6 The N-acetyl cysteine inhibits MMP 9 activity, blocks invasive actions of tumor cells, and inhibits endothelial invasion.7"9 Selenium decreases MMP expression in tumor cells and decreases migration of endothelial cells. 10_nArginine is a precursor of nitric oxide (NO) which induces apoptosis.12

There are a host of dietary and herbal supplements which are suggested as being anti-tumor, including such entities as various mushrooms, cardamom, cayenne pepper, ginger, sage, thyme, turmeric, citrus pectin, etc. which may be used on an individual basis.

Additional anti-angiogenetic materials: artemisinin, graviola, carnivora, fish oil (epa + dha), genestein (soybeans), garlic, epigaliocatechingallate (EGCG) (green tea).
