How dose intravenous vitamin C helps lung cancer patients?
Vitamin C in high doses (50-100 grams) given intravenously can increase the blood levels of vitamin C to 14,000 μmol/ L. Nevertheless, the maximum blood level of the oral vitamin C is only 220 μmol/ L. So the intravenous vitamin C can achieve a blood level of about 700 times or more the oral form. High dose vitamin C fights cancer through these mechanisms : It increases the oxidative stress by creating more Hydrogen Peroxide around the tumor so disturbing the microenvironment of the tumor cells, it also reduces the angiogenesis (the formation of a new blood vessels by the tumor the help tumor grow), and induces apoptosis (programmed cell death) which is against what tumor cells do to survive. So, high dose intravenous vitamin C can reduce the aggression of tumour cell division.
What is the clinical evidence of the value of high dose intravenous vitamin C in cancer patients?

One of these studies is Padayatty et al https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1405876/ who had a study on three patients with lung cancer, bladder cancer and a paraspinal tumour, all showed a positive anti-tumour response.
