Havana.- Cuban researchers are developing several therapeutic vaccines against cancer, as part of a strategy to improve life quality.

The work is one of the priorities of Cuba’s Molecular Immunology Center, whose experts are carrying out a score of clinical trials in seven countries.
The research is being carried out in over 18 hospitals and 15 other health facilities are expected to be included in the program soon.

Phase-two tests on humans include vaccines against advanced lung, prostrate and colon cancers.

Hospitals in Cuba, Argentina and Spain are testing a drug against melanoma and breast cancer, while the radioactive R3 monoclonal antibody is being experimented on brain tumors.

Most resources from Cuban biotechnology are used in developing several vaccines, including some against such scourges as cholera and dengue fever.

    A family member was diagnosed with stomach cancer.  He is 48 years old.  He had several tumors removed from his stomach in October.  He is Cuban born, but lives in the USA.  He is able to go to Cuba for this treatment.  We need guidance and information where he can go or who he contacts.

    I have read reports that Hemp Oil distilled from the female Indica Hemp plant can be used to treat Cancer, Diabetes, Artheritis, and other serious Diseases as described in the website seen below, while the Non THC varieties of the Hemp Seed Oils are more suitable to be used as a supplement in foods One can do a search for “Run from the Cure”, or “Phoenix Tears”, or Rick Simpson, to get a better handle on what I am talking about. The results shown in the videos on the websites found from Searches are truly remarkable. The references and Quotes from Medical Research Organizations are un-disputable. What are the chances to make this Legal in Cuba, The US, Canada or in other Countries? It would take a massive grass roots effort to educate the public, Celebrities, Politicians, private and Governmental Research Organizations as to the Beneficial uses of Hemp Oil. In Cuba possibly the renowned Medical Research organization, Cuba’s Molecular Immunology Center could look into doing research into Hemp Oil as a cure to Cancer and other diseases?
    The videos are called, “Run from the Cure” and can be seen at the below link.

    My sister was diagnosed with lung cancer and I was looking for help and I came across your website and saw that there are anti-vaccines for lung cancer. Is there anyway I could purchase or order these vaccines? Is there anyway I could get these vaccines? If anyone has an answer, please write back. Thank you very much.
