Can you help with info on cancer treatment centers in Cuba?

Question: My wife has had breast cancer which has now turned to bone cancer. I understand that Cuba has cancer treatment centers (hospitals). Can you supply me with names and email addresses?

Answer: The main cancer centre in Cuba is the Havana-based Instituto de Oncología y Radiobiología. In addition to having an outstanding record in cancer-based research, treatment and indeed prevention, this hospital is also incorporated into Cuba’s program of Turismo de Salud (Health Tourism), which facilitates overseas patients receiving care.

To contact Turismo de Salud at the above Hospital, send an email to the director of this department, Dr. José Andres López Losada, at [email protected] In the subject line, be sure to put “para Dr. Losada, jefe, Turismo de Salud “. His direct phone number (office) is (537) 832-2202, should you wish to speak with him in person. He will indicate what information you need to send so that the Hospital can assess if they think they’ll be able to assist your wife’s health condition. Below is the address of the Hospital:

Instituto de Oncología y Radiobiología

Calle 29

Esquina a F (esquina = corner)

Vedado – Municipio Plaza,

Ciudad de La Habana, Cuba
Research carried out by the Instituto de Oncología y Radiobiología has included the development of the monoclonal antibody that recognizes and identifies the presence of the Human Papilloma Virus Ior-HPV1 associated with the appearance of malignant cells and cervical uterine cancer. This antibody enables a fast and accurate diagnosis in screening.

Another study has been done on breast cancer families, enabling the characterization of the gene mutations causing this hereditary cancer and the creation of a Breast Cancer Family Registry in Cuba. Understanding the genetic base of breast cancer can help in identifying the specific cellular mutations responsible for its transmission and ways to prevent this.

More recent studies relate to breast cancer and gene-expression elements that may produce resistance to oncological drugs, as well as studies on prostate cancer.

Recently, the Instituto has undergone major renovation and reconstruction (almost complete), financed by the state, to make it more modern, more comfortable for patients, and outfitted with updated technology.

    communicate with a doctor about
    alternative treatments. Could you please help me, could you please share me a

    Kiev Institute of Cancer, unsuccessfully so, her health has deteriorated
    rapidly. On the July 21 Masha was transferred to Meir Medical Centre in Israel.
    The estimated cost of treatment is $140,000. Her family have raised nearly

    My Brother was given 14 months to live when the Doctor finds out that his body cannot take Chemo anymore. ever since then, the family have been in pain knowing that they where going to loose a precious son that was just 23 years old to Cancer of the lungs. my mother did a lot of research when she found out that cannabis oil was the cure all medication for cancerous diseases, that was highly guaranteed to cure all cancers and other various diseases. my mother bought the Hemp oil for my brother and he has just completed his treatment 3 weeks back. his latest test result indicated that his cancer has been gone without a single trace in his system. Thanks to Rick Simpson and Thomas Kelvin where the Hemp oil was purchase. For all those suffering from cancer and other various diseases with no where left to go, contact Thomas at: [email protected] and purchase your cannabis oil.

    Hello, my sister was diagnosed with neuroendocrine carcinoma in the lung and liver back in dec 2010, she has gone under chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Right now due to the weakness shes presenting doctors dont want to continue with chemotherapy. She has polymiositis and her liver functions are high. Is there any hospital in Cuba that can offer her any sort of treatment either alternative, chemotherapy or natural ?? Thank you.

  • July 18, 2012 at 10:14 am

    We were told that you should write the Cira Garcia Clinic in Havana at [email protected] The message should be directed to María Antonieta González Piloto who is the assistant director of the clinic. You should explain the situation and what you are seeking. They recommend you attach a summary of the clinical history of the patient and the steps that have been taken. Once received, it should be two or three days until you get a reply. There are a group of three doctors that receive the e-mails and pass them on to where they should go.

    Please let us know afterwards if you inquiry is satisfied.
    Best regards, Circles Robinson, editor, HT

    Good morning. Melanoma is very treatable by using Ultraviolet Light. ATI LIghting is looking for a good cancer hospital or university to test our ultraviolet light. We have recent testing from an accredited Laboritory in Australia. Ultravilet Light was used to treat many viruses and bacteria infections in the 1920’s – 1940’s. Our UV light is equal to that light of many years ago.

    Cuba is still on the same level at the USA in terms of cancer treatment in that the mainstay of their treatment still revolves around allopathic procedures—chemo, radiation, etc. I do not think it has an established treatment center which deal with the full person and the cutting edge of “Alternative” or Natural treatment. (But if they do, please let ME know.)

    The reason I am on this board to begin with is because I am contemplating setting up such a natural treatment center in Cuba, if that is at all possible.

    The best natural route involves a complete remineralization of the body, balancing the pH, removing deep-seated toxins, use of natural estrogen binders (such as the lignans found in flaxseed), and use of the Budwig Protocol, as well as pancreatic enzymes (as per the Kelley approach). Best, however, to find someone skilled in the art and who can guide you through the seeming maze.
