The Synergism of Somatostatin, Melatonin, Vitamins Prolactin and Estrogen Inhibitors Increased Survival, Objective Response and Performance Status In 297 Cases of Breast Cancer

Giuseppe Di Bella*, Colori B and Scanferlato R

Background: Breast cancer is still the leading cause of death in women worldwide.

Study question: Our purpose is to improve survival, objective response and quality of life with a non-toxic biological therapy.

Study design: The DBM (Di Bella Method) with MLT (Melatonin), Retinoids, solubilized in vitamin E, D3, and C, Folates, proteoglycans and calcium, has a differentiating, cytostatic, anti-angiogenic, immune-modulating, factorially synergic effect, simultaneously reinforcing the functions which physiology considers to be essential for life. With Somatostatin/Octreotide, prolactin and estrogen inhibitors, DBM has an antiproliferative, antiangiogenic and antimetastatic effect. These molecules govern negatively pituitary secretions like GH-PRL, whose mitogenic properties are enhanced by the combination of ovarian hormones such as estrogen. The negative regulation of GH extends to IGF-1, EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor), VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor), and GHdependent growth factors. The DBM (Di Bella Method) uses minimal metronomic apoptotic, non-cytotoxic and non-mutagenic doses of cyclophosphamide. The tolerability of which is enhanced by MLT and by the vitamins included in the DBM. We report a retrospective observational study with 5-year follow-up, carried out on 297 patients affected by breast cancer and treated with the Di Bella Method biological therapy.

Results and conclusion: complete and stable objective responses without cytolytic chemotherapy, in some cases even without surgery or radiotherapy, with a generalized improvement in quality of life and no significant and/or prolonged toxicity. The most important 5-year survival rate was 69.4% at stage IV cancer versus 26.3% reported by the National Cancer Institute.
