“As an official representative of Cuban Ministry of Public Health, we are entitled to provide any treatment the Cuban Healthcare System offers for international patients all over the world.”
The recent breakthroughs in Cuban medical science within the field of genetic engineering have produced several effective cancer vaccines:
• CIMAher or Nimotuzumab for head, neck and gastrointestinal cancer (GI)
• CIMAVAX-EGF (non-small cell lung cancer)
• Vaxira or Racotumomab (non-small cell lung cancer)
Since the announcement of these vaccines, which have shown significant impact even on advanced stages of the disease, the World Health Organization (WHO) has qualified Cuba as a country ‘converting cancer from a terminal disease to a chronic disease’.
Cuba has also other complementary immune therapies and natural products to efficiently cure cancer.
Momentum Cuba has extensive experience to design the most suitable protocols to achieve maximum impact on treating cancer.
The Neurological Restoration Program in Cuba is essentially carried out through two main therapeutic programs: ‘’Neurological Rehabilitation or Restoration’’ and ‘’General Biological Restoration’’.
The neurological diseases mainly treated are the following:
• Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders
• Cranial brain trauma
• Traumatic injuries of the spinal cord
• Alterations related to brain aging
• Alzheimer disease
• Tumors of the C.N.S.
• Complications of cerebral anoxia
• Cerebral palsy
• Neuromuscular and peripheral nerve disorders
• Other diseases of the nervous system
Addiction Rehabilitation Program
Cuba, with decades long experience, has gained global recognition due to its development of a comprehensive support system designed to help people in their fight against substance addiction and addictions in general.
This well-structured program consists of a three month treatment and rehabilitation, with special emphasis on modern cognitive behavior and group therapy methods. Visitors receive professional help in developing social control mechanisms needed to break away from alcohol, recreational drugs as well as hard drug addictions to fully experience the benefit of detoxification and rehabilitation. The treatments are overseen by specialized management teams and multidisciplinary staff.
Diabetic Foot Ulcer Treatment
The Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (CIGB) has developed the drug Heberprot-P for the treatment of severe diabetic foot ulcer. Heberprot-P contains Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) as its main ingredient and is parenterally administered (intra-lesional injections directly into the wound), encouraging the progress and sustained healing of the lesions. Approximately more than 200,000 patients with diabetic foot ulcer have been treated successfully with Heberprot-P success reducing the risk of amputation by %75.
This program incorporates advanced therapies, ranging from orthopedic care and traumatology, to sports medicine, to prosthesis development and orthotic techniques.
Retinitis Pigmentosa is known as an inherited eye disease that causes retinal degeneration, leading to a slow progressive loss of vision. It’s the first cause of blindness by genetic origin for adults.
Although there has been continuous progress in obtaining knowledge about this disease, effective treatments to restore vision have not been achieved. However, Cuban specialists created an alternative treatment that consists of performing a technical surgery and combining it with other therapies. This technique has been developed for over 20 years. Although, this treatment does not eliminate the disease, it has managed to stop the progress of Retinitis Pigmentosa in hundreds of patients, avoiding blindness.
