Gonzalez Regimen (PDQ®): Complementary and alternative medicine - Health Professional Information [NCI] - Human / Clinical Studies

continued...

No data concerning the effectiveness of the Gonzalez regimen for the treatment of cancer patients with other types of cancer have been reported, despite claims that a variety of cancers can be treated. In addition, there is no safety or efficacy information on the regimen in children. No clinical trials of this regimen have been conducted in children, and this extremely difficult regimen may be prohibitive in young children.
