Study Subjects Needed for Cancer Experiment
What is the connection between pH and cancer? There’s been a great deal of buzz about this recently, and the Clinical and Translational Science Research Center is looking for people interested in participating in a clinical trial that is relevant to integrative treatment approaches in cancer.
Here is what we do know: Tumors produce acid. Acidic tumors are more aggressive. Tumor acid can be reduced using a buffer. This has been successfully shown in animal studies using baking soda. Several studies published since 2009 have shown that baking soda treatment inhibits tumor aggressiveness and that tumor-bearing animals benefit from the treatment.
It is unknown if baking soda treatment could benefit cancer patients, and the researchers would like to first determine the level of willingness for people to consume baking soda on a regular basis and to be sure that it is safe.
This trial, open to adults 18 and older, involves the feasibility of consuming baking soda in water daily for a three-month period. There is no cost to participants and compensation is included for study participation.
