 Irish Times Article - Garda to investigate doctor after 17 of 48 patients die   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-09)
The therapy administered to the patients was cytoluminescent therapy (CLT).
The patients, who were mainly from the US but also included a number of Canadians and Britons, were first treated with the illumination therapy at the East Clinic, Killaloe, or at a nearby hotel, and then told to continue to administer the treatment at home for a number of weeks.
A small number believed they had benefited from the therapy, but a larger number complained that their condition had deteriorated and believed the treatment had accelerated the growth of their tumours.

The choice of therapy depends upon the location and grade of the tumor and the stage of the disease, as well as the general state of the patient (performance status).
Radiation therapy (also called radiotherapy, X-ray therapy, or irradiation) is the use of a certain type of energy (called ionizing radiation) to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors.
Radiation therapy may be used to treat almost every type of solid tumor, including cancers of the brain, breast, cervix, larynx, lung, pancreas, prostate, skin, spine, stomach, uterus, or soft tissue sarcomas.

In January 1998, the FDA approved porfimer sodium for the treatment of early nonsmall cell lung cancer in patients for whom the usual treatments for lung cancer are not appropriate.
The National Cancer Institute and other institutions are supporting clinical trials (research studies) to evaluate the use of photodynamic therapy for several types of cancer, including cancers of the bladder, brain, larynx, and oral cavity.

Treatment of cancer typically involves surgery to remove tumors and nearby lymph nodes to which the cancer may have spread, combined with radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy.
The latter two target cells in the body that are rapidly dividing.
This mutation is associated with poor prognosis, since those tumor cells are less likely to go into apoptosis (programmed cell death) when damaged by therapy.

Therate of secondary cancer is improving as chemotherapy treatment schedulesare becoming less toxic, but on the whole the incidence of cancer in previous cancer patients is substantially higher than in thegeneral population.
There is a tremendous amount of research being conducted on all frontiers of ncology, ranging from cancer cell biology to chemotherapy treatment regimens and optimal palliative care and pain relief.

 Can Light Cure Cancer?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-09)
Cytoluminescent Therapy, or CLT, utilizes a chemical called a photosensitizer that is able to absorb energy from light and use this energy to fuel chemical reactions.
CLT exploits a unique property of cancer cells: unlike healthy cells, these abnormal cells are unable to rid themselves of this photosensitizer.
CLT is an advanced form of Photodynamic Therapy (PDT), which has had limited use in cancer treatment since the 1980's.

 Books: Healing Mind and Body - Chemotherapy Cures Cancer and the World is Flat
In addition to descriptions of more than 100 cancer therapies and substances used in treating cancer, the author also explains which cancer therapies are used allopathically, for which types of cancer, and what is imperative for a patient to know before he subjects himself to such therapies.
However when it comes to purchasing a therapy, very few patients inform themselves in detail about their illness, rather they rely on statements from neighbors and acquaintances, or on the statements of a doctor.
First, those who purchase this book expect to learn something about successful therapies other than chemotherapy and radiation, and second, it is simply a fact that is not easy to write about conventional cancer therapies if you want to describe them independently of pharmaceutical funding and career thinking.

Patients are pre-treated with a drug called a sensitizer, and are then administered light of a certain wavelength, their cancer cells will die by the millions.
Prospective CLT patients must understand that the treatment is new and experimental and that, by definition, an experimental treatment's potential risks and benefits are less predictable and understood than those of more established therapies.

Other therapies and approaches could be evaluated as to how well they addressed all of the healing concepts detailed in this book.

"The Gerson Therapy" is a welcome and highly recommended addition to the multitude of books that address healing of chronic conditions including cancer by using natural or alternative means.

The Gerson Therapy is brought up to date, (the therapy is over 60 years old), with the latest information including program modifications for people who have had chemotherapy, for people who are in an extremely weakened state, and a modified program for non cancer chronic conditions.
Yes the therapy can be difficult to follow particularly because it is highly restrictive on food, requires time to make fresh vegetable juices several times every day, and requires time to do the detoxification procedures.

Dr Thomas Cleary, who was acting as the "attending physician" when the €20,000 cytoluminescent therapy or CLT was administered to patients by Dr William Porter at a clinic on the Clare/Tipperary border, made the undertaking in recent days after the Medical Council expressed grave concern about his involvement in the provision of the treatment.
It found that 17 of 48 patients treated by Dr Porter with CLT in Killaloe, Co Clare, in late 2002 and early 2003 were dead within six months of the treatment and many suffered after-effects.
The light therapy, it is claimed, can destroy cancer cells even in patients with advanced cancer.

A substance is injected into the bloodstream, made up of either chlorella or spirulina, which is soaked up by the cancer cells, and then the light is shined onto the body, or specific body part affected.
Because of the frequency of the light particles, they are able to penetrate the body and are attracted to the chlorella/spirulina cells, which then kills the cancer cells.
