Case 1: Adenoid-cystic carcinoma of the hard palate

Tumour response following high-dose intratumoural application of Viscum album on a patient with adenoid cystic carcinoma

Werthmann PG et al. 2014 [165]

The ten-month intratumoural application of a high-dose mistletoe therapy alone led to a partial tumour reduction in an 88-year-old patient with adenoid-cystic carcinoma of the hard palate, with the presence of inflammation verified by means of biopsy.

During therapy and in the follow-up of five months, the patient was in good condition and without functional limitations.
