What's common in "spontaneous" remissions from pancreatic cancer?
Spontaneous remission is defined as "The partial or complete disappearance of a malignant tumor in the absence of all treatment or in the presence of therapy considered inadequate to exert a significant influence on [the disease]" (Spontaneous Regression by Don MacAdam).
Pancreatic spontaneous remissions have been documented in the Spontaneous Remission Project, the Radical Remission database, an article called Spontaneous regression of pancreatic cancer: real or a misdiagnosis? One Man Alone and Conquering Cancer: Volume 1 50 Pancreatic and Breast Cancer Patients on the Gonzalez Nutritional Protocol by Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez.
Combined, the most success I've found has come from the work of Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, with his high doses of pancreatic enzymes, detox with coffee enemas, individualized diet and individualized supplement protocol. High doses of pancreatic enzymes were also taken by a couple of the other survivors listed below, even if they didn't follow the exact Gonzalez protocol. (I did a couple videos a few years ago about pancreatic enzymes and cancer). Other factors in spontaneous remissions were prayer, surgery (possibly due to danger signals being released into the body which were then recognized by the immune system and alerted the body to the cancer), biopsy and fever.
The Spontaneous Remission Project records remissions due to:
- intercessory prayer
Spontaneous regression of pancreatic cancer: real or a misdiagnosis? recounts remissions after:
- jaundice, severe pain, nausea, chills, and a high fever
- insulin treatment, surgery and a mixed chemotherapeutic program with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and carmustine or bis-chloroethylnitrosourea
- exploratory surgery
CancerCompassAlternateRoute.com contains testimonials of healing using:
- diet, supplements, detox protocols
- diet, detoxing, laetrile, prayer
- Gonzalez protocol including high doses of pancreatic enzymes, coffee enemas, supplements and prayer
Dr. Gonzalez's books, One Man Alone and Conquering Cancer: Volume 1 contain 19 case histories combined of people recovering completely or having significantly improved outcomes compared to the norm using a protocol of:
- high doses of pancreatic enzymes
- individualized nutrition
- individualized supplement protocol
- detoxification with coffee enemas
Research suggests that the prognosis for survival depends on the number of genetic mutations, according to the study, Genetics of pancreatic cancer and implications for therapy. Genetic testing appears to be beneficial to determine which therapies may be best suited to target specific genetic mutations that are present in the person's tumor.

"In conclusion, according to these results, a small molecule that prevents the clustering of NuMA in the mitotic spindle poles of human cancer cells, efficiently eradicates PDAC cells. PJ34, which is permeable in the cell membrane, accessed and eradicated human PDAC cells in xenografts without impairing normal proliferating cells infiltrated into the tumors. The exclusive cytotoxicity of PJ34 in human cancer cells offers a new model of pancreas cancer therapy which does not impair normal tissues."
