Urotherapy for patients with cancer

Med Hypotheses. 1997 Apr;48(4):309-15. doi: 10.1016/s0306-9877(97)90099-2.


Cancer cells release various antigens, some of which appear in the urine. Oral autourotherapy is suggested as a new treatment modality for cancer patients. It will provide the intestinal lymphatic system with the many tumor antigens against which antibodies may be produced. These antibodies may be pierced through the blood stream and attack the tumor and its cells.
