Research Update

Dear Friends and Followers:

We are very sorry that we are late in getting back and posting new information on our blog but we have had a very busy late summer and fall with research presentations around the country and some exciting new work that we are entering into on nutrients and supplements.  We hope all of you had a great holiday season.  We wish all of you a Happy New Year.

We are now working on some exciting research projects this year and may discuss some of those later.  I want to bring all of you up to date on some of the things we have done on great research and accomplishments that have happened in 2018.  First, we presented our work on how antibiotics cause mitochondrial dysfunction and damage to normal cells in June at the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation in Nashville TN.  Secondly, we then presented some of the same research information but it was a oral presentation at the Microscopy Society of America in August at Baltimore.  In September I was the invited speaker at the Northeastern Cell Therapy Center in Florida to discuss our mitochondrial Organelle transplantation research.  This Center is also affiliated with the new satellite Karolinska institute that has recently started in Florida.  The main and long-lasting prestigious and research institute Karolinska is in Stockholm Sweden. 

In November we presented our work on neglected immunosuppressive molecules in the tumor micro environment in Washington DC at the Society of Immunotherapy for Cancer meeting.  This past December I was invited to a research retreat at Evergreen Colorado by a wealthy family to present our research with some other researchers from around the country.  This group and family are considering collaboration and possibly financial support for our research.  We are continuing to work on what we have mentioned above and now we are working on some very exciting work of how to improve the host immune system in the cancer patient and also how to prevent recurrence of disease.  We have been asked to check certain nutrition supplements that might be harmful and actually may promote tumor progression and cause metastatic disease.  This is exciting because the work on antibiotics and another supplement that is used frequently around the country, Chondroitin sulfate may be in certain forms dangerous and we think it would impact public health worldwide. 

We ask all of you to please pray for our research and center and if you would like to support this work and research you can make a tax-deductible donation to The Sallie Astor Burdine Breast Foundation at 541 Shadows Lane Suite C in Baton Rouge, LA  70806.  The tax ID number is:

Dr. Baucom and I hope that all of you have a great 2019 and we will try and post at least once every month some valuable information to all of our followers and we will try and keep you better informed.  God Bless all of you and once again, we thank you for your support.
