The deuterium content of healthy human blood plasma is about 149-150 ppm. Some variations of deuterium content with age and sex were observed in blood plasma. We report for the first time the variation of deuterium content of blood plasma of the patients with cancer disease. The deuterium content of blood plasma of cancerous human is diminished by about 5-7 ppm compared with the healthy one.
The tumors cell have a higher speed of growth than the normal cell and this results in consuming a greater quantity of deuterium. The replacement of tap water with deuterium depleted water in a drinking water for the mice diminishes the growth rate of the tumors, and the slight increase in the deuterium concentration stimulates this growth.
