Repurposed Cancer Drugs for Integrative Cancer Care

What are Repurposed Cancer Drugs?

At the Cancer Center for Healing, we incorporate a whole-body integrative approach to cancer care. One of our methods of tackling cancer is to use repurposed non-cancer medications.

Non-cancer medications have been around for decades and have been found to contain anti-cancer properties.

The illustration down below demonstrates a combination of four commonly prescribed medications (atorvastatin, metformin, mebendazole, and doxycycline) targeting cancer cells.
