    Our team are research scientists (Ph.D.) and are not attending Dr.

    We are working now for the 20th year entering our 21th year of R&D effort (in June 2022).

    We don’t have a Clinique and we can not advise nor refer to any specific case.

    We initially intend to target: lung, colon, head & neck cancers.

    The treatment, in any case, has to be individually adapted to the patient.

    We are a small team and have an influx of e-mail.

    We try to answer at least initial emails but can not promise it.
