Evidence on the anti-cancer effect of high-dose Ascorbic Acid (AA) has been generated from several basic and clinical studies. AA can increase the level of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) through oxidative stress, modulate tumor immunity. However, a model using “continually intravenous pump of AA for 24 h” has not been widely reported. We treated 4 palliative patients using this approach combining the metabolic mechanisms of AA in the body and possible synergy mechanisms with arginine and magnesium ion. The results show significantly improved survival in two patients with advanced Lung Adenocarcinoma (LUAD) who received this combination therapy and no serious adverse events occurring. Therefore, we explored a high-dose AA combination with arginine and magnesium sulfate with exhibited synergistic anti-tumor effects in LUAD, which have significantly improved anti-cancer effects and enhance anti-tumor immunity in vitro and in vivo. This study provides a contribution to a debate on a new high-efficiency and low-toxicity combination therapy in future clinical practice, potentially improving the prognosis of patients with LUAD.
