Comment of doctor upon seeing tumor results after chemo.
The patient was taking DCA too.

This is a survey we received 6 March 2009. I spoke with the patient. The patient will give us a more detailed story soon. We will add this survey to the survey page early next week. Note the patient used DCA every other day and drank a lot of caffeine.
