Insulin potentiation therapy, or IPT, was first developed in the 1930s in Mexico by Dr. Donato Perez Garcia. He theorized that insulin could improve the cellular uptake of other medications given, since insulin was already known at that time to be required for the uptake of sugar. For the first couple of decades, Dr. Garcia treated several different diseases using IPT, including schizophrenia and syphilis. It was not until later that he began using IPT to treat cancer in conjunction with low dose (or fractionated) chemotherapy. Today, IPT is primarily used for cancer treatment at a select group of cancer treatment clinics, as mainstream cancer treatment centers only administer treatments that are considered within the standard of care.
