Case 5: A 51-year-old patient diagnosed at the end of 1983 with bronchial carcinoma in the lower right lobe has the diagnosis confirmed by routine oncological tests (distinctively positive TAK but negative bronchial residue. Surgery is proposed.
The family decides to delay surgery and try the bicarbonate treatment.
Radiological examination is performed 18 months after the treatment. During these months there are no emophtoic episodes as occurred at the beginning of the disease. The radiological examination still indicates the presence of a nodular mass in the lower part of the right lobe, but its dimensions appear to be smaller and the contours of the mass more regular.
Case 6: A 48-year-old patient with tumour in the middle lobe of the lung that has been confirmed by all oncological examinations is put on a waiting list for surgery at the beginning of 1983. Incidentally, the execution modality does not seem to be completely defined because the neoplastic mass exceeds the limits.
The patient leaves the hospital against the advice of doctors – to the point that the doctors look for him for several months. He then submits to a bicarbonate therapy which is able to re-establish healthy conditions.
A radiological examination performed after nine months reveals that the neoplastic mass has been replaced by a tenuous transversal line located at the base of the medium lobe that can be interpreted as a residual scar.
The patient is still living.
Case 7: In 1981, a 55-year-old patient is affected by rectal neoplasy that has been evidentiated through symptoms such as problems with evacuation and bleeding, and, instrumentally, through endoscopic examination. Doctors suggest rectal resection and consequent surgical construction of a preternatural anus. In the attempt to avoid this mutilation, the patient submits to a local therapy with bicarbonate performed with enemas containing a high bicarbonate solution — 8 teaspoons per litre.
Three years after the treatment, the patient was still living.
