Hi everyone! Thank you for your advice, guidance and experience. I wish everyone a complete recovery!

My name is Kirill, age 33. I am looking for help and advice. On May 20, 2020, I had surgery to partially remove the neoplasm in the left temporo-insula.

Analysis results: A diffuse glioma with infiltrative growth into the brain tissue is revealed. The tumor is represented mainly by the astrocytic component, also a little oligodendrocytic and hemistocytic. Mitotic figures are noted. Cellular density is increased. Reactive endothelium is found in the vessels.

  1. Anaplastic astrocytoma, WHO Grade 3
  2. IDH1 R132 H - mutant
  3. MGMT - unmethylated
  4. Ki-67 up to 15%
There is no exact information, but surgeons estimate about 80-90% removal of the neoplasm. 

I had the following treatment:

  1. Proton therapy course 6 weeks. Radiation quantity 60 GyE. Finished 08/25/2020. At the time, I had no information about additional treatment that you discuss on the forum, so I have not used the means for increasing the sensitivity of the tumor in radiation therapy.
  2. Temozolomide 200 mg/m2 (in my case 350 mg). Standard schedule 5/28.
10/09/2020 – start of 1st course

04/23/2020 – 8 course.

During chemotherapy, I ate large amounts of antioxidant foods (broccoli, berries, green tea, garlic, onions, parsley, etc.). I have a simple diet: whole grains, refusal of meat in favor of fish, refusal of sugars and simple carbohydrates, a lot of vegetables and fruits, greens. I also took: curcumine, boswellia, omega-3, lycopene, resveratrol. Daily walking at least 1 hour.

At the moment, a fairly large cyst has formed at the place of the surgery. MRI 03/09/2021 shows stable results, no positive nor negative changes. PET/ะกT 04/02/2021 shows relapse. The doctors asked for a second MRI to check. The doctors, as usual, are conservative and treat according to the protocol.

After such news, I immediately bought medicines and dietary supplements, which are recommended on the forum.


  1. Levetiracetam
  2. Fluoxetine
  3. Mifepristone
  4. Hydroxychloroquine
  5. Metformin
  6. Valaciclovir
  7. Disulfiram
  8. Minocycline
  9. Atorvastatin
  10. Mebendazole
  11. Tamoxifen
  12. DCA
  13. Celecoxib

I would be grateful for your help, whether they suit me and how to combine them all.

Dietary supplements:

  1. Berberine
  2. Fungi Perfecti, Stamets 7
  3. Fungi Perfecti, Host Defense Turkey Tail
  4. Now Foods, EGCg, green tea extract, 400 mg,
  5. Life Extension, optimized resveratrol
  6. Life Extension Boswellia serrata
  7. Curcumin SLCP
  8. Now Foods, silymarin
  9. Solgar, vitamin D3 5000 ME
  10. Now Foods, ultra omega-3
  11. Life Extension, Mega Lycopene

I really want the tumor to shrink. Thanks to your forum, I plan to:

  1. Switching to the metronomic schedule Temozolomide, dose 70-80 mg / kg2. 3 weeks taking, 1 week off. Or without interruption if I have enough strength.
  2. Add Levetiracetam, Fluoxetine, Disulfiram, Valproic Acid to reduce the effect of MGMT
  3. Add Metformin for blood glucose control.

Thank you for your opinion and advice:

  1. What medications can be added (or removed), in what dose and for how long should I take it?
  2. Is it a good idea to add Agomelatine before taking Temozolomide on a metronomic schedule?
  3. How do Levetiracetam and Fluoxetine interact, how and in what quantities is it better to take them together?
  4. What do you think about Temozolomide + Tamoxifen at this stage? I am thinking about Tamoxifen, because for a year now I have a very high level of estradiol, always the very upper limits. I heard that it could somehow relate to a tumor. I also know that Ben Williams has been taking Tamoxifen on a regular basis. I know that Tamoxifen is not very friendly with Fluoxetine...
  5. Please suggest a different scheme if you have different opinion.

If such a scheme does not bring the desired result, then I plan to take Lomustine. Since I heard that Lomustine may be useful in the case of Astrocytoma-Secondary glioblastoma independent of MGMT.

Thank you for your opinion and advice:

  1. Do I need to add drugs that reduce the effect of MGMT? Maybe there is a better combination of Lomustine with other drugs? Or is Lomustine not the best option / combination?
  2. What medications can be added (or removed), in what dose and for how long to take?
  3. Please suggest a different scheme if you have different opinion.

What are your thoughts on having several different short courses of chemotherapy? Ben Williams drastically changed his schemes so that cells did not have time to mutate, adapt and survive.

  • Maybe TMZ + Tamoxifen
  • Then BCNU (Carmustine)
  • Then Procarbazine, oral Lomustine (CCNU). This regimen is known as PC
  • Then TMZ + ??? or Avastin + ???
  • + Dietary supplements
  • + in my case reduce the effect of unmethylated MGMT …

What combinations can fit in my case?

If there will be a second operation, what is the best way to build a more effective treatment with the information already available?

I think there may be several options:

A) Radiation therapy may be prescribed.

I will do the following:

1) Adjuvant therapy Temozolomide + reducing the effect of unmethylated MGMT (Levetiracetam, Fluoxetine, Valproic Acid + ???)

2) I will add drugs that will increase the tumor sensibilization to radiation therapy.

What exactly to add and in what doses in my case?


B) They may refuse the radiation therapy and prescribe chemotherapy.

What is the best way to start chemotherapy? Should I continue Temozolomide on the metronomic schedule or change something?

I have a great need to find a specialist, an experienced person with whom there could be a personal connection during treatment. Can you help with this, Stephen?

Also, I really want to help in the development of the project, how can I donate?

Thank you very much for your opinion and support.

P-Selectin Study

 A study that caught my attention with impressive results in vivo albeit mice. They inhibited the p-P-Selectin protein to achieve the results. I found many supplements in my research reducing P-Selectin (EGCG, Melatonin, Lipitor, Resveratrol, Boswellia, etc). What was interesting I found is all the drugs tied with P-Selectin all dealt with inflammation. Sure enough, I found diets such as the Paleo, Low Fat, and Mediterranean diets reduced P-Selectin. I also found a study that correlates P-Selectin to cholesterol levels (LDL) as well as inflammatory responses to exercise.


Diet impact:

Chloroquine supplies - help please

 Hello friends,

It seems to be that supplies of Chloroquine have now completely dried up in the UK (I'm not sure whether it is beause there is no international travel, Brexit is causing problems, or it has been bought up by those believing it offers COVID-19 protection). Can anyone please help me source it somehow? Happy to message privately. I have a grade III anaplastic astrocytoma, currently showing no growth following resection 18 months ago. I have been taking it continuously until the wholesaler told our pharmacy that they didn't have any more and didn't know when it was next due to arrive.

Any help would be HUGELY appreciated.
