Hydrogen gas has been shown to have numerous health benefits, but its effect on secondary brain tumors, or brain metastases, may be the most compelling yet. Can hydrogen gas help shrink brain tumors caused by other types of cancer? Here’s what you need to know.
Brain Metastases: What Are They?
Metastatic brain cancer is a secondary type of cancer caused when malignant tumor cells spread from other parts of the body to the brain. This condition is most often caused by colon, kidney, skin, and lung cancer.
Hydrogen Gas: What Is It and How Does It Work?
Ingesting or inhaling hydrogen gas can improve cell damage throughout the body caused by oxidative stress. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory, and has been shown to reduce inflammation in cases of severe allergic rhinitis with H2-infused saline treatment by “selectively scavenging free hydroxyl radicals and reactive oxygen species,” according to research published in the Journal of Inflammation, Nature Medicine, and ScienceDirect.
The Results of Treating Brain Metastases with Hydrogen Gas Inhalation
A recently published case report in Volume 12 of OncoTargets and Therapy presents a 44-year-old female with primary lung cancer with secondary brain metastases. After treatment with oral medications, brain lesions remained stable for approximately 28 months. Additionally, the patient was recorded to have metastases in liver, adrenal, and bone tissue, as well as the accumulation of hydrocephalus in the third and lateral ventricles.
The patient received four months of hydrogen gas monotherapy, after which a significant reduction in the size of brain metastases was noted. After one year of hydrogen gas monotherapy, the patient’s brain lesions had entirely disappeared. Unfortunately, there was no noted effect on tumors in the lungs or liver.
The treatment of this patient with hydrogen gas inhalation shows promising effects on the control of tumor growth and increase in patient survival time and quality of life.
