Hi all,

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?

hi there

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

best wishes

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:
