Blood Test Could ‘Personalize’ Cancer Immunotherapy


Blood tests to find out, in advance, if a tumor will respond to a treatment have been available for a while.  In Japan, a doctor is routinely using a blood test called RGCC to predict how his patients are going to respond to chemotherapy and other treatments.  In this test almost every patient, even though suffering from a variety of different cancers, responded positively to Onkobel®, a mix of Pao pereira and Rauwolfia vomitoria prepared according to Dr. Beljanski ‘s precise specifications.

The results have been posted on the Beljanski Foundation ‘s website.

Here is a recent article on the subject:
