Sorry, I thought I saw a post about this awhile ago and now I can't find it...
Anyone try Antabuse for GBM? Did it work?... (it's the drug to wean people off alcohol - but has been shown to be hopefully helpful with brain cancer) Just curious if anyone has experience with it?

i did read a newspaper article in the uk a couple of months ago that talked about this type of drug - i think they called it disulfiram ... i think it's only being considered for trials but i'll try and find the article and give a link

Hi - I have read about this too - this is just a Daily Mail article but there were others released in October 2012, including a link on the BT Buddies website.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2222532/Drug-used-
Also found this from a medical centre which appears to have received funding for disulfiram (antabuse) trials:

If you were considering traveling for cancer treatment, which headline would you find more interesting?
Destination: HOPE. Cancer care that is worth the trip.
Over 84% of our patients travel to our hospital from another state
Neither headline is interesting
