In 2016, Joe Tippens from Oklahoma was diagnosed with late-stage small cell lung cancer. And by January of 2017, it had spread throughout his entire body.

Doctors informed Joe that his life expectancy was just three months but they also enrolled him in a clinical trial they hoped could give him another year of life.

A veterinarian recommended he ingest a dog de-worming drug, fenbendazole, which in cell studies has revealed cancer-fighting properties.



By May of 2017, Joe’s cancer had completely disappeared.

It has since been two years later and he is still cancer free.

Oklahoma’s medical researchers plan are currently looking into Joe’s case.

While Joe’s situation was a best case scenario in the clinical trial, it should be noted how there have been no trials of fenbendazole for treating cancer, and there may be risks involved as the medication is currently not recommended by doctors.
