Joe Tippins found out he had small cell lung cancer in January 2017, and was certain that he would die.
A veterinarian suggested he try a drug for dogs to combat his cancer. The medication, called fenbendazole, is an anti-worm compound used to treat roundworms, hookworms, and other gut parasites, primarily in dogs.
Recent studies in a growing number of medical journals suggest that anti-worm drugs may have cancer-fighting properties.
Joe decided to take a chance because with three months to live, he had nothing to lose. He was diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer in late 2016, and by 2017 it had spread throughout his entire body – his liver, pancreas, bladder, stomach, neck, and bones.  He was given three months to live, and was worried he would not get to meet his first grandson.
Remarkably, today, Joe is cancer free. He attributes his current status to the dog de-worming drug he took while also enrolled in a clinical trial.
When Joe found out he had cancer, doctors at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas told him they weren’t going to give up on him. They put him in a clinical trial that wouldn’t save him, but might give him about a year to live. A year sounded better than three months (and he might get to meet his first grandson) so he decided to go for it.

During the trial, Joe was browsing an online forum for Oklahoma State University, his alma mater, and he saw a post that caught his eye. It said:
If you have cancer or know someone who does, give me a shout.1
Joe, who looked like a skeleton with skin hanging off of it, reached out and contacted the poster, who was a veterinarian. He discovered that scientists had inadvertently found out that a dog de-worming drug seemed to combat many cancers in mice. The scientist that had conducted the research, as it turned out, had stage 4 brain cancer, and had been given the same prognosis Joe had been given, according to the vet.
The veterinarian had told the scientist about fenbendazole, a de-worming drug for dogs, which had shown cancer-fighting properties in cell studies. She started taking the dog pills, and within six weeks, as the vet told it, the scientist’s cancer was gone. 
Joe told KOCO 5 News that he placed an order for fenbenazole, which cost him just $5 a week. He said his insurance company had spent $1.2 million on him with conventional means.
According to a study published in Nature, fenbenazole basically starves cancer cells and kills themAnd, it is already in production, cheaper, and, according to cell studies and reports from people who have tried it, not very toxic, especially compared to chemo and immunotherapies. But, having said all that, it was a risk.
Joe remained in the clinical trial (it is not clear what therapy he received in the trial) and added vitamin E, CBD, bioavailable curcumin and, of course, the de-worming medicine.  He did not mention the latter to his doctors.
The difference between Joe’s PET scans in January of 2017 and in May of 2017 was unbelievable. And in May, Joe got to meet his first grandchild, Luke.
Two-and-a-half weeks later, he had another PET scan.  Joe was dumbfounded, and so was his oncologist. He said:
Three months earlier…There was cancer in my body from head to toe. And it was a terrifyingly dangerous metastasis that leaves virtually 100% of its victims dead within 3 months. Here I was 3 months later and the PET scan was completely dark……void of any light…..anywhere.1
Joe said his doctor, who was still unaware of the dog medicine, told him:
We don’t quite know what to make of this as you are the only patient on the clinical trial with this kind of response.1
In September 2017, Joe went for yet another scan. And he was still cancer free. He finally decided to tell his doctor about the dog medicine.
Joe said there was no way at that point to prove that it was the de-worming drug that made his cancer vanish, but his doctor did tell him that he was an ‘outlier’ of the trial. His final scan was taken in January of 2018, with a follow-up appointment that April. He said that his oncologist kicked him out of the cancer center because Joe had no cancer to treat.
Joe realizes that his results seem too good to be true. However, he says he has heard over forty similar success stories using the dog medicine.
His results were good enough to catch the attention of the president of the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, Dr Stephen Prescott, who told KOCO:
I’m usually skeptical, and I was and maybe still am about this one, but there’s interesting background on this.1
According to KOCO, Dr Prescott and Joe are currently working on a case study report. Joe is cautious to note that he’s not a doctor, and is only one man with limited resources, adding:
I am not prescribing medicine and I am not qualified to give advice on medical treatments. BUT…..I am qualified to tell my story to as many people as possible.1
