We’re taking shopping to a whole new level with 2-DG. When you purchase one of 2-DG’s SPF50 UV Protective Golf Shirts, you are not only protecting your skin from harmful rays that cause skin cancer, but you’re also helping to fund groundbreaking cancer research. A portion of all sales from 2-DG’s Italian Golf Shirts is used to fund Cancer Treatment Research through The Lampidis Cancer Foundation. Now that’s money well spent!

What is The Lampidis Cancer Foundation?

The Lampidis Cancer Foundation was founded on the research of Dr. Theodore Lampidis. It was established to fund the revolutionary research and clinical trials of 2-DG. His research aims to help those suffering from different types of cancer by tricking non-oxygen consuming cancer cells, living inside a cancerous tumor, to ingest a fake sugar called 2-DG. He discovered that when he injects this form of glucose to cancerous the cells begin to starve and eventually die. The National Cancer Institute reviewed this research and stated that “Dr. Lampidis’ work could eventually lead to cures for certain cancers.”

Because of the success of this work, an FDA approved Clinical Trial was conducted. The purpose of this phase 1 of the trail was to discover the correct amount of 2-DG that should be used. Before they are able to progress to phase 2 of the trial, there is more research that must take place to determine the most effective combination of treatments and the delivery method.

Who is Dr. Theodore Lampidis?

Dr. Theodore Lampidis is highly respected Professor at the Department of Cell Biology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and a member of Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. He has devoted the last 13 years of his life to his research on glucose tumor metabolism with a single-minded purpose that he describes as follows: “I am convinced that the biochemical principles at the heart of our work are as fundamental as gravity. That is why I believe investigating tumor metabolism in general and glucose metabolism in particular, will lead to significant and real advances in the struggle we all one way or another face in fighting this devastating disease."
