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

Also found this from a medical centre which appears to have received funding for disulfiram (antabuse) trials:
