Insulin potentiation therapy
Insulin potentiation therapy (IPT) is an unproven alternative cancer treatment using insulin to administer low-dose chemotherapy. It was developed by Donato Perez Garcia, MD in 1930 as a targeted therapy for chronic degenerative diseases and some types of cancer.
According to Quackwatch, "Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) is one of several unproven, dangerous treatments that is promoted by a small group of practitioners without trustworthy evidence that it works."
