Case 1

Minor regression and long-time survival (56 months) in a patient with malignant pleural mesothelioma under Viscum album and Helleborus niger extracts – a case report 

Werthmann PG et al. 2017 [266]

The combined use of mistletoe and Helleborus niger extracts for six weeks led to a fifteen percent reduction in pleural and nodal tumour manifestation in a 64-year-old female patient with stage III malignant pleural mesothelioma who had refused radiochemotherapy, surgery and pleurodesis.

Despite slow tumour progression, the patient reported good health and remained physically active until her death – 56 months after initial diagnosis.
