Glioblastoma Treatment Breakthrough: `Untreatable` Brain Cancer Tumor Stabilized With Malaria Drug

Al's Comment:

 Chloroquine is a cheap drug approved for treatment of Malaria, and is now being tested against many types of cancer.  This article talks about success with 3 patients, and all 3 benefitted.   In our brain tumor virtual trial registry, we have 8 patients who tried it.  5 out of the 8 lived over 2 years, and 3 went on to become long term survivors.  Note that they also took many other treatments besides Chloroquine, so it is impossible for us to tell if it was due to the Chloroquine, but it may be worth looking at closely
