Off Label Use of Drugs

Many drugs serve multiple purposes in the body and can be very effective in specific pathways of cancer metabolism, but to this point in our history those drugs are not "approved" by the FDA as a cancer metabolism drug. There have been many articles and books written on the subject. (Book "Cracking Cancer Toolkit: using repurposed drugs for cancer treatment")

This field is constantly growing and our understanding is shifting as new discoveries are made and understood.

Here is a short list of Drugs that are showing promise:

  • Propranolol (a heart medication)

  • Doxycycline (an Anti-biotic)

  • Aspirin (a pain medication)

  • Metformin (a blood sugar medication)

  • Ivermectin (a anti parasitic medication)

  • Celecoxib (a pain medication)

  • Among many others.

There is much research that needs to be done in this area of "repurposed drugs" The drugs listed above are among those that have a good amount of research on the subject. Many times, these drugs are not appropriate, however sometimes they can be very helpful as part of the overall approach.
