Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO)
CANCER BENEFITS

Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) is a commonly available product with a wide variety of non-medical uses. In industry, it has been used as a chemical solvent. In laboratory research, it is often used as a cryopreservative for cultured cells. One of the properties of DMSO is that it is absorbed very rapidly through the skin and cell membranes, carrying along almost anything else (particularly, low molecular weight molecules) dissolved in it that would not otherwise be able to cross those barriers.

Intravenous and oral administration of DMSO allows it to penetrate rapidly into vascular and non-vascular tissues in the body (854). Its popular use among athletes, people with arthritis and others have stemmed from claims that topical DMSO reduces pain, decreases swelling, and promotes healing of injured tissue.

DMSO is commonly used in unconventional cancer treatments, particularly in “metabolic” treatments, such as those offered at several clinics in Tijuana, and in the United States (e.g., at a hospital in Zion, Illinois and at clinics in Nevada, Pennsylvania, and California (289). DMSO is often combined with laetrile and vitamin C, among other substances, and administered to patients intravenously. For example, the “Manner Cocktail,” consisting of 10cc of DMSO, 25 grams of vitamin C, and 9 grams of laetrile dissolved in a 250cc bag of a 5% dextrose solution (574), is used to treat cancer patients at the Manner Clinic in Tijuana.

One of the most widely available sources of information about the use of DMSO in unconventional cancer treatments is the booklet commonly available in health food stores: Dr. Donsbach Tells You What You Always Wanted to Know about DMSO (263). In this booklet, it is claimed that “while DMSO has not brought ˜cure’ for health problems, it has been and is now the source of comfort for millions of medical consumers.” Dr. Donsbach states that DMSO acts by making cancer cells “behave more normally by bringing about a mitotic turnabout.” He proposes its use as a treatment to relieve pain, to slow the growth of bacteria, viruses, and fungi, to control inflammation and swelling, to relieve burns and sprains, and to relieve the symptoms of arthritis, herpes, tuberculosis, sinusitis, and cancer.

Mildred Miller, an advocate of DMSO use in cancer treatment (616), claims that intravenous DMSO “dissolves the protein shell surrounding the cancer cells and begins to restore the abnormal cell to normalcy” (615) and that it “stimulate[s] the body’s own immune system, as well as altering the cancer cell, causing it to become mature or burn out” (617). Miller is associated with a clinic in Las Vegas that uses DMSO as one of its main components of cancer treatment. Topical application of DMSO has been associated with redness, itching, inflammation of the skin and garlic-like taste and odor on the breath.
