The role of repurposed drugs and metabolic interventions in treating cancer

Paul E. Marik, MD, FCCM, FCCP

This is a review of the published literature showing options for repurposed drugs that can be used in cancer treatment. It is not intended as a stand-alone guide to treating cancer. The goal is to provide a well-researched clearinghouse of information that picks up where traditional cancer therapies leave off. Providers caring for cancer patients can use this information to think creatively about readily available interventions, with science to back up their efficacy, that could improve their patients’ outcomes.
