Ty Bollinger: Now what do you think about
the IPT, the IPTLD, the targeted low dose? Dr. Murray Susser: I think IPT is a good option.
Ty Bollinger: Okay. Dr. Susser: I’ve seen people who had exhausted
everything in conventional medicine and conventional chemotherapy, conventional everything. And
they always give that little phrase, “go home and get your things
in order.” Ty Bollinger: Sure.
Dr. Susser: You know, that’s a real doctor-y thing.
Ty Bollinger: Yeah. Dr. Susser: And with the IPT, a lot of these
people instead of getting their things in order took IPT and got a lot of good results
and a good quality of life. IPT is insulin-potentiation therapy. Now they’re calling it low dose
chemotherapy. Ty Bollinger: IPTLD, sure. Can you kind of
describe what is IPTLD, what is the low dose IPT?
Dr. Susser: Well, the low dose IPT, the low dose therapy, has to do with getting the cancer
cells, fooling the cancer cells. Cancer cells eat sugar at about
19 times the speed of healthy cells. And cancer cells are voracious for sugar, which you should
say that’s one of the good management aspects of treating cancer patients is take them off
every drop of sugar, not a speck. But with IPT what you do is you give insulin and insulin
lowers the blood sugar. And you just get the right amount of insulin and you give it, and
you lower the blood sugar below it’s normal range of about 90 or 100-mg percent. And when it gets down to 40 range, you get
really sick. I mean you get—you feel sick. It’s not dangerous but it feels terrible.
It gets dangerous when you get down to around 20 or 10 or zero. But at 40, it’s not dangerous
but it’s quite unpleasant. And what’s happening is it’s unpleasant for the cancer cells. It’s
more because they’re starving. And cancer cells are really good at selecting out chemotherapy.
They won’t take chemotherapy, but they will take sugar. And when you take away all the
sugar then the cancer cells will take anything. That’s kind of like someone dying of thirst
on the ocean in an ocean raft and they drink salt water. They know it’s not good for them
and it kills them. But the cancer cells then will take the chemotherapy instead because
they can’t get sugar. Ty Bollinger: Okay.
Dr. Susser: And that gives a tremendous benefit therapeutically. And the numbers are really
fantastic on that because the IPT gives you 200 percent, 200
or 300 percent therapy with 10 percent of the toxicity. You give a tiny dose of chemotherapy
at the therapeutic moment when the blood sugar reaches 40. And you give the IV chemotherapy.
Ty Bollinger: And so that’s more of a selectively toxic treatment towards the cancer cells than
just blasting the whole body with chemo. Dr. Susser: Very—exactly, that’s exactly
the way to put it.
