Chlorine dioxide is a powerful and cost-effective oxidizing agent that has demonstrated anti-cancer activity both in vitro and in vivo. Its proposed mechanism involves the release of free radicals, which disrupt the delicate oxidative balance within cancer cells. In case report, the patient has voluntarily opted for compassionate chlorine dioxide therapy over continuing conventional chemotherapy and immunotherapy due to side effects and uncertain survival outcomes. The concentration of the chlorine dioxide solution was 1/100 times lower than the LOAEL threshold, ensuring that not compromise the patients' health. This is the first follow-up in patient diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer, who shown tumor reduction at distant sites from the primary tumor with no side effects. This preliminary observation suggests that chlorine dioxide and its free radicals could be potential mediators of an anticancer response. However, it is imperative to emphasize the importance of conducting rigorous clinical trials to validate these initial findings.
