Yvar Verhoeven was the first person in a small group of patients with different kinds of cancer to be treated with Dr. Young Hee Ko's patented formulation of 3-bromopyruvate (3-BrPA).  It was administered intra-arterially by Univ. Prof. med. Dr. Thomas J. Vogl, Direktor, Institut für Diagnostische und Interventionelle Radiologie at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

Yvar had inoperable infiltrative liver cancer which had spread beyond his liver.  He initially responded to Bayer's Sorafenib a/k/a Nexavar, which is the "gold standard" of liver cancer drugs.  Inevitably, his response to Nexavar diminished.

As a last resort, he was given a series of 3-bromopyruvate treatments.  As expected, it eradicated his liver cancer.

Unfortunately, Yvar's liver had been so severely injured by his cancer that it could not sufficiently detoxify the ammonia in his blood.  He died nearly a year later after the initiation of 3-bromopyruvate treatment.

During the period of Yvar's treatment with 3-bromopyruvate, which does not have the severe side effects associated with conventional chemotherapy, he had recovered sufficiently to tour the United States and to make a presentation from the perspective of a patient at The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, which was arranged by Professor Peter L. Pedersen, who was Dr. Ko's mentor.

I had multiple intravenous infusions of 3-bp over one month in 2011 with hopes to treat cancer.

My friend is considering 3bp for her mother. In the paper you mentioned they specifically discussed special formulation for 3bp. Could you please share your experience or thoughts about 3bp based treatment.

thank you in advance

Alex,

Did you get any information on 3BP and who was using etc.  I'm interested also.  Need to find a doctor who is familiar with it.  Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Were you successful in finding anyone who is or had used 3BP.  If so, please share with me.  I'm trying to find a doctor who is familiar with it.
