I was just going to post that, it seems very interesting. Good to remember that it is the intravaneous C with chemo that the study indicates. Also, that this needs some follow up research.

Donna, I actually just had my first intravenous C treatment after chemo this week.  I actually felt terrible the day I did it and did not notice a difference.  I started with 15 grams but they want to move you up to 50 grams.  They also did a blood test to get a baseline on something?  I'm also taking vitamin C in a pill form every day.  If it helps in ways I can not see or feel I'll be all for it.

Intravenous Vitamin C and Cancer

Interesting observation in there seems promise with IV Vitamin C treatment, but not the same results in pill form.
