In a NY Times Article, they are very critical of all immunotherapy treatment options. However there is more than one option and not all of them have the same negative effects as this failure. "These so-called immunotherapy drugs have been hailed as a breakthrough in cancer treatment, attracting billions of research dollars and offering new hope to patients out of options. But as their use grows, doctors are finding that they pose serious risks that stem from the very thing that makes them effective. An unleashed immune system can attack healthy, vital organs: notably the bowel, the liver and the lungs, but also the kidneys, the adrenal and pituitary glands, the pancreas and, in rare cases, the heart. Doctors at Yale believe immunotherapy is causing a new type of acute-onset diabetes, with at least 17 cases there so far, Mr. Peal’s among them. In cancer clinics around the world, and in drug trials, myriad other side effects are showing up. Studies are finding that severe reactions occur nearly 20 percent of the time with certain drugs, and in more than half of patients when some drugs are used in combination. Another recent paper found that 30 percent of patients experienced “interesting, rare or unexpected side effects,” with a quarter of the reactions described as severe, life-threatening or requiring hospitalization. Some patients have died, including five in recent months in clinical trials of a new immunotherapy drug being tested by Juno Therapeutics Inc."
We know this is a long post, but we thought it was very important. Immunotherapy has been making leaps and bounds and Lodonal (LDN) is placed in that category as well. However it is interesting to note the differences between Lodonal and these other therapies. The only reported side effect of Lodonal is a slight disturbance that only occurs is less than %15 of the patients (according to Skips Pharmacy) and that only last for the first couple times taking the medication. It is actually suppose to help with sleeping for the rest of the patients. The above also mentions that a side effect is getting an acute form of diabetes. We find to be the most intriguing as Lodonal actually works as a treatment for diabetes. So if you are taking Lodonal how could you get diabetes if it is treating diabetes. The NY Times article talks about the body attacking it self. With Lodonal, it simply regulates your immune system allowing it to naturally fight what it the body should be fighting. There has never been a reported case of someone taking Lodonal and they body attacking it self in a negative manor. There is a good and bad for everything, we however, don't want to see people detoured from Immunothrerapy because one system doesn't work. Lodonal has proven to be effective and proven to be safe for the long haul.
