ABSTRACT: In spite of development and introduction of new antineoplastic drugs, cancer remains the serious problem of public health. It is proven that the replacement of normal drinking water with deuterium-depleted water (DDW) leads to the decrease in tumor mass or its total regression. The amount of these scientific evidences is constantly increasing. The difference in physical and chemical properties between hydrogen and deuterium causes different biological behavior of molecules, containing these two isotopes. The deuterium concentration in living organisms exceeds 10-12 mM, what is above the range of calcium, magnesium, or potassium. In vitro and in vivo experiments proved that naturally occurring D might have a pivotal role in cell-growth. D-depletion may be used as a highly effective adjuvant instrument in different pathological states, especially in the treatment and recurrence prevention of cancer in mammals including humans. Intake of DDW is effective, safe and can be easily integrated into standard treatment cancer regimens. Furthermore, the analyses of isotopic content of body fluids (ex. blood) and some tissues can be put forward as a method of cancer diagnostic. These discoveries signify a new possibility in oncotherapy and promise a new anticancer agent with a potential for future clinical application. This paper presents the review of experimental results (in vitro and in vivo) on the influence of DDW on the tumor cells.
