Some info from LinkedIn and a patent that they have shared. It seems the lead compound (EF-022) is a lectin-receptor activator that modulates suppressor macrophages and tolerogenic dendritic cells.
In 25% of patients (n=24) with refractory tumours then it lead to stabilized disease. This was the fourth line of treatment for over a third of them. To be eligible they had to have failed standard of care (chemo, PD-1 inhibitor and/or a EGFR inhibitor). In patients whose disease progressed after treatment with PD-1 inhibitors then 40% (2 out of 5) showed stable disease (SD) after treatment with EF-022.
EF-022 has also shown encouraging results in a compassionate use case. A patient with pulmonary metastatic sarcoma received weekly injections (100 ng/each injection) intramuscularly (IM) for one year. As a result, disease stabilization was achieved for 6 months. Thereafter, relapse accompanied with new lesions in the lungs occurred. At that stage, the patient received a combination therapy of it and the anti-PD-1 drug Keytruda which was administered by intravenous (IV) injection every three weeks. The combination was continued for an additional 6 months. This resulted in disease stabilization and complete disappearance of one of the lung metastases (FIGs. IB and 1C). Thus, the combination therapy was found to be more efficacious than either treatment alone.

Then a patient with oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) who after failing SOC (chemotherapy and Keytruda) showed stable disease (SD) after treatment with EF-022. It was shown that it unexpectedly increased the number of cytotoxic T cells and macrophages in the tumour site, leading to disease stabilization despite the extremely high increase in PD-L1 expression on the tumour cells and/or adjacent cells during the EF-022 treatment course.
This shows the number of cells expressing PD-L1 from tumour biopsies collected from the patient prior to treatment (baseline) and after 57 days

It should be noted that high expression of PD-L1 on tumour cells and/or adjacent cells is typically linked with immune suppression and poor prognosis. Yet, treating this patient for four months resulted in disease stabilization and then tumour shrinkage. This result indicates that in spite of the high expression of PD-L1 EF-022 was capable of arresting tumour growth.

ABC: Holistic Dr. Found Dead In His Natural Health Clinic, Police Investigate as Homicide
http://www.healthnutnews.com/holistic-dr-found-dead-natural-health-clinic-police-calling-victims-death-suspicious/

March 4, 2017 - Police have now confirmed that 59-year-old old Dr. Juan Gonzalez, a board certified holistic doctor, has died.

Dr. Juan Sanchez Gonzalez had a business degree from WKU and multiple degrees in naturopathic medicine. He retired from the United States Army with his last assignment at Fort Knox, Kentucky, but appears to have had a thriving practice with many loving patients who are now mourning his death online.

Since arriving on the scene on Friday night, the Bowling Green Police Department have released few details. We know that detectives were called to the business at 1022 31-W Bypass for a welfare check and found a man dead inside the building upon arrival. They’ve finally released the name and it’s being treated as a murder.

“Usually I’ll park in the back in the mornings, but today I wanted to park a little bit closer, so it’s definitely going to make me and probably everyone else in the area a little bit more cautious and aware,” said Alicia Jones, who works at Robertson Auto Sales.

Businesses say that owner, Dr. Juan Gonzalez, has a car that hasn’t moved from the scene since the incident, but they know little of the owner beyond that.

Many owners in the area weren’t at work when the police arrived on scene due to the late hour, but Saturday Jones told 13-News the daylight didn’t do much to erase her uneasy feeling.

“It was alarming when I found out what was going on, but hopefully it will get resolved soon [along with] the mystery of what happened and why.”

Our heart goes out to his family and friends. We truly hope they discover who killed this holistic doctor whose patients rave about him.

77th Holistic Doctor Shot Dead In Her AZ Home With Her Entire Family
http://www.collective-evolution.com/2017/11/12/breaking-77th-holistic-doctor-shot-dead-in-her-az-home-with-her-entire-family/

Dr. Annie Fairbanks, a holistic doctor practicing out of Arizona, was found shot dead in her home with husband Jason Fairbanks, 3 year old daughter and 9 month old son. This makes the 77th holistic doctor to have been found dead in this way over the past couple of years.

Sgt. Ben Hoster, a spokesman for the Scottsdale Police Department, stated that the police do not believe any other parties are involved. This essentially means there are no suspects and that this is likely a murder-suicide. Even the local paper is calling it that. Oddly, this statement and conclusion was made just hours after the incident took place, hardly giving anyone enough time to make a call like that.

“This is an isolated incident,” Hoster told reporters during a news conference in the neighborhood on Friday afternoon. “We do not believe there are any outstanding suspects.”

The family ran a health practice called Macrotherapy, which focused on natural and holistic healing. It’s unclear whether or not the practice was employing new or outside the box methods like GcMAF, but further investigations should tell us.

GcMAF (Glycoprotein Macrophage Activating Factor) is a protein made by our body and is pretty much the ‘director’ of our immune system. Our immune system is our body’s defense system against viruses and other pathogens. As healthy persons we all produce thousands of cancer cells every day. When we are unhealthy, GcMAF production drops. If one is able to be injected with GcMAF, they can once again heal. GcMAF was linked to a number of holistic doctors that were showing up mysteriously dead over the past two years.

People who knew the Fairbanks family, saw Dr. Fairbanks as patients, and who were personal friends, had been reaching out to a colleague we work with over at Health Nut News stating they doubt the claim and explanation given by the police. Especially since it was made so quickly. As mentioned, the more that we uncover about this story, the more we will report on in the future.

Laura Fairbanks, Jason’s sister, recalled her older brother as a protector. “He loved his family so much, he wasn’t a bad person.”

Laura explained that Jason was working seven days a week to provide for his family while funds were tight in their new ventures. Funds were not coming in like Jason needed them to, but he was still working away.

Although Jason was a man of few words, Laura said she could always tell and see how he was really feeling. She gave no indication that she would have expected a suicide. This of course does not rule it out in any way, but adds to the mystery around this story.

We will continue to follow this story and its hasty decision to call it a murder-suicide within hours of it happening. We will update and produce more stories as we know more.

Regarding the so-called murder-suicide claim.
It is interesting that the man supposedly shot himself in the back of the head.
I'm not a gun dude, but is that even possible?

I guess it’s possible (dependinbg on the type of gun/ rifle, where the entry hole is and depending on the angle of entry), but if you are going to shoot yourself, that’s the least thing that will cross your mind. So this mostly doesn’t make much sense.

State of Oregon - November 17th

Founder of Autism Non-Profit Found Dead in Canal
https://www.naturalblaze.com/2017/11/founder-autism-non-profit-found-dead-canal.html

We regret to report to you that a well-known advocate for autistic people – Jeana Beck – died approximately November 17th near an Oregon hotel room where she had been staying.

Beck was the founder of Unlocking Autism and was traveling with her 23-year-old autistic son for a work trip and staying at Rodeway Inn.

She reportedly went outside for a smoke break and never returned. She was reported missing. Tragically, her body was found the next night in a canal behind the hotel.

Strangely, police almost immediately ruled out foul play, according to health writer Erin Elizabeth of Healthnut News who has delved deep into the strange string of deaths that has rocked the alternative health community in the last year or so.

We have touched on some of those stories on dead doctors but apparently the number has reached above 70 in less than a two-year period.

Elizabeth notes another strange twist – Beck was a supporter of Age of Autism, whose editor Dan Olmstead also died in an alleged suicide early this year.

The family, of course, wants answers and apparently isn’t accepting the police explanation for Beck’s death. They rightfully want to know what happened to their loved one. Beck leaves behind four children. They say she would not take her own life, had no enemies, and her purse, keys and car were left where they were when she suddenly disappeared.

We know it’s been said before but we are indescribably sorry and saddened to hear this news and the other many inexplicable deaths. Our thoughts and prayers are truly with Beck’s family and we hope for answers soon.

81st doctor found dead in Park Avenue Home by 11 y/o daughter w/ knife in torso, cops instantly rule “suicide”
https://www.healthnutnews.com/81st-doctor-found-dead-in-park-avenue-home-by-11-y-o-daughter-w-knife-in-torso-cops-instantly-rule-suicide/

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Dr. Dean Lorich was found dead this afternoon, Sunday, December 10th in his Park Avenue, Upper East Side home. He was 54 years old.

Police instantly began treating the death as suicide and said the doctor was under “some personal stress,” so that was likely the reason he put a knife through his torso (not his heart) knowing his 11-year-old daughter would find him on the floor, bleeding out.

Lorich’s wife was out playing tennis when the “suicide” occurred, there was apparently no suicide note found at the scene.

So just to recap, an MD- the father of three girls, associate director of the Orthopaedic Trauma Service at the Hospital for Special Surgery, a professor at Weill Cornell Medical College (where our 79th doctor, Dr Crespo, was found dead just days ago, also in a bathroom)- went into the bathroom when his wife was gone and he was alone with his child, and stuck a knife into his torso. Though nearly nothing about this is plausible, ALMOST IMMEDIATELY cops say no foul play, he was stressed.

After his daughter found him she alerted the building’s doorman, who called 911. Police said the call was regarding an assault, as naturally, sources say the doorman (maybe smarter than the cops?) thought he must have been attacked, not put a knife in his own torso. When the cops found the 54-year-old doctor’s body in the bathroom around 1 p.m., the knife was not in his heart, but close they say.

While this only happened this afternoon, it’s already been in the news for 5 hours. How they could even have examined the body yet in Manhattan boggles my mind.

One of Lorich’s purported colleagues, who declined to give her name, came by and spoke to the doorman before falling to a knee in prayer, “This is horrible, this is horrible. I don’t believe this.” 1 (We have trouble believing it too).

Our hearts go out to his family and friends. Both Lorich and Dr Crespo were found dead within days of each other in Manhattan, both of Weil Cornell, we won’t stop reporting on all these deaths until we get answers that make actual sense.

Again, both Lorich and Crespo worked at the same hospital. Lorich, the winner of the “2010 Roger E. Joseph Prize by Hebrew Union College for his humanitarian efforts in treating victims of the recent Haiti earthquake and in Landstuhl, Germany treating soldiers injured in Iraq and in Afghanistan” 2(the award recognizes individuals making lasting contributions to the causes of human rights), who was beloved and an asset to the medical community and Crespo, who was researching cancer with the use of stem cells, have both just died within days of each other, under suspicious circumstances.


An acclaimed trauma surgeon was found dead with a knife in his torso Sunday in his Park Avenue apartment in a suspected suicide, New York City police said.
Acclaimed NY surgeon found dead in Park Avenue apartment in suspected suicide
http://abcnews.go.com/US/york-surgeon-found-dead-park-avenue-apartment/story?id=51710242

Dr. Dean Lorich, 54, was the associate director of the orthopedic trauma service at the Hospital for Special Surgery who treated Bono in 2014 after the U2 frontman was badly injured in a cycling accident in Central Park.

Lorich was also a professor at Weill Cornell Medical College.

His death is being investigated as an apparent suicide, a New York Police Department official told ABC News.

Initial investigations did not find any signs of forced entry at his apartment, the official said. Authorities have not found a suicide note.

Police responding to a 911 call of an assault in a Park Avenue apartment at 1:05 p.m. Sunday found Lorich unconscious and unresponsive with a knife in his torso, according to the NYPD. Emergency medical service responders pronounced him dead.

There are no arrests, and the investigation is ongoing, according to the NYPD.

The Hospital for Special Surgery, New York-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine released a statement of sympathy Sunday evening.

"Dr. Lorich was a distinguished orthopedic trauma surgeon and teacher serving at Hospital for Special Surgery, New York-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine. We mourn this tragic development and extend our deepest sympathies to Dr. Lorich's family, friends and patients," the statement said.

A well-known surgeon who exposed major inadequacies in medical trauma care promised to the Haitian people by the Clinton Foundation after the non-profit raised over $30 million dollars in donations following the devastating 2010 earthquake was found dead in his upscale apartment Sunday with a stab wound to the chest.

Surgeon who exposed Clinton Foundation corruption in Haiti found dead in apartment with stab wound to the chest
_http://www.dcclothesline.com/2017/12/13/surgeon-who-exposed-clinton-foundation-corruption-in-haiti-found-dead-in-apartment-with-stab-wound-to-the-chest/

Dr. Dean Lorich, 54, was found lying dead on the bathroom floor of his apartment by his 11-year-old daughter with a knife sticking out of his chest.

The predominant surgeon gained notoriety after operating on U2’s frontman Bono and former running back Michael Cox but had also worked overseas in Haiti where he discovered an almost non-existent medical effort backed by the Clinton Foundation.

In fact, in January of 2010, Dr. Lorich sent a detailed email to a confidant which ended up getting forwarded to Cheryl Mills who was Counselor and Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the time before being forwarded on again to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The doctor’s correspondence, provided by Wikileaks, was critical of how the situation in Haiti was being handled.
_https://wikileaks.org/clinton-emails/emailid/3852

“Disaster management on the ground was nonexistent,” the doctor wrote. ” Cheerios on the tarmac are not getting it done on these patients which clearly would be savable if good care could urgently be provided.”

However, the email was only a precursor to the bombshell the doctor dropped publically just days later on Jan. 25, 2010, in a piece for CNN titled “Doctors: Haiti medical situation shameful” which detailed the conditions overseas and again the doctor took veiled shots at the Clinton Foundation.

“Once we arrived, we saw a severely damaged hospital with no running water and only limited electrical power, supplied by a generator. Surgeries were being performed in the equivalent of a large storage closet, where amputations were performed with hacksaws,” the doctor wrote. “This facility could not nearly accommodate our equipment nor our expertise to treat the volume of injuries we saw.”

That’s when the medical team decided to go with ‘Plan B’ which was to set up at the Community Hospital of Haiti located several miles away. However, what the team found when they arrived at the hospital was horrific at best.

Dr. Lorich wrote:

We found scores of patients with pus dripping out of open extremity fractures and crush injuries. Some wounds were already ridden with maggots.

About a third of these victims were children. The entire hospital smelled of infected, rotting limbs and death. Later on, we would judge our surgical progress by the diminishment of the stench.

In our naïveté, we didn’t expect that the two anesthesia machines would not work; that there would be only one cautery available in the entire hospital to stop bleeding; that an operating room sterilizer fit only instruments the size of a cigar box; that there would be no sterile saline, no functioning fluoroscopy machine, no blood for transfusions, no ability to do lab work; and the only local staff was a ragtag group of voluntary health providers who, like us, had made it there on their own.

As a caveat, the doctor added, “Upon our departure, we witnessed pallets of Cheerios and dry goods sitting on the tarmac helping nobody. Yet our flight of critical medical equipment and personnel had been canceled, and the equipment that did get through was hijacked.”

Did the doctor’s persistence wind up getting him added to the Clinton body count? Who murdered the doctor?

Strange circumstances surrounding the death of a prominent cardiologist in Houston, Texas, who formally treated George H.W. Bush.

7- 24 - 2018 - Surveillance images show gunman behind George H.W. Bush's former doctor moments before murder (Video)
Surveillance images show gunman behind George H.W. Bush's former doctor moments before murder

Houston police released surveillance images Sunday showing a gunman trailing behind George H.W. Bush’s former cardiologist moments before the doctor was shot and killed while biking to work — clues authorities hope will help nab the killer.

The images taken from surveillance cameras in the area show Dr. Mark Hausknecht biking across an intersection while a man trails behind and eventually approaches him. Police said Hausknecht was shot and killed moments later, about one block away.

Another image shows a man heading west on Southgate Boulevard and Travis Street shortly after the deadly shooting.

The images comes a day after police released a sketch of a man they believe is the gunman. Authorities are also offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

The 65-year-old doctor was heading to work at the Texas Medical Center when he was shot at least twice at 9 a.m. Friday, police said. Hausknecht dropped to the ground immediately while the gunman fled the scene on a light-colored mountain bike, police said.

Witnesses told police the shooter was a clean-shaven man who is about 30 years old, 5-foot-10 with a slender build. He was wearing a baseball cap, sunglasses, a gray warmup jacket and khaki shorts the morning of the shooting.

It’s still unclear if Hausknecht’s death was a random or targeted attack, the Houston Chronicle reported.

"This is a crime that doesn't make sense," Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said Saturday. "We don't even have a motive yet."

Hausknecht was a well-known doctor who had been in medical practice for almost 40 years. He specialized in cardiovascular disease, said Marc Boom, president and CEO of Houston Methodist Hospital.

In 2000, Hausknecht treated Bush for an irregular heartbeat. Bush said in a statement that Hausknecht was a “fantastic cardiologist and
a good man."


July 21, 2016 - George H.W. Bush’s Cardiologist Shot to Death in Bicycle Drive-By
George H.W. Bush's Cardiologist Shot to Death in Bicycle Drive-By

In a bicycle to bicycle drive-by shooting on the southwest side of Houston, Texas, a cardiologist who quite publicly treated former US President George H.W. Bush was killed Friday morning not far from Texas Medical Center.

65 year old Dr. Mark Hausknecht was the man who passed away.

He was shot and killed as he and the shooter encountered each other on bicycles. According to the official narrative, the doctor was riding north when he passed the shooter going the opposite direction. The shooter turned after passing him, and fired two shots at him, before riding away on his bike.

The doctor was rushed to a nearby hospital, before passing away from his injuries.

According to CNN: “Finner said investigators didn’t know if the shooting was targeted, random or caused by road rage. He said a few people witnessed the shooting and video may become available.

In an updated description, the suspect is said to be a white or Hispanic male, about 30 years old, wearing a tan baseball cap, gray warmup jacket, khaki shorts and riding a light-colored mountain bike bicycle.”

That certainly fits the definition of an assassination. Further increasing the odds that this was a targeted hit, in Houston, Texas random civilians don’t get shot nearly as often in even the worse neighborhoods, compared to a city like Chicago or Oakland for example.

Southwest Houston indeed is one of the less safe areas, like the 3rd and 5th Wards, or the South Park area, but the odds that this was a random act of violence are extremely low in Houston.

In a sort of creepy recognition of the event, a spokesman for the 94 year old former president, Jim McGrath issued a statement that said:

“President George HW Bush was deeply saddened by the tragic circumstances surrounding the untimely passing of Dr. Mark Hausknecht, and 41 sends his most sincere condolences to the Hausknecht family, his colleagues at Houston Methodist, and his friends.”

I just noticed this report and wonder if "this breakthrough" has any connection to these mysterious deaths?

December 17, 2018 - Israeli company claims it has created new technology that can destroy cancerous tumors
Israeli company claims it has created new technology that can destroy cancerous tumors

Diffusing Alpha-emitters Radiation Therapy is minimally invasive procedure that reportedly leaves healthy tissue unharmed.

An Israeli company says it has developed a targeted radiation treatment that it claims can cure cancerous tumors.

"This is the first time in the world that you can treat solid tumors with alpha radiation," Alpha Tau Medical's CEO Uzi Sofer told the Times of Israel.

The technology called Diffusing Alpha-emitters Radiation Therapy, or DaRT, uses a needle to inject tumors with a radioactive seed that releases a high-energy dose of alpha radiation that destroys the tumor. The healthy tissue surrounding the tumors is left unharmed.

The procedure is minimally invasive and can be performed using local anesthesia in two hours or less, the company said. Sofer told the Times that for superficial tumors it's much "like going to a dentist."

How does it work?

The Alpha DaRT radioactive seeds are inserted into the tumor where they must stay for at least two weeks.

"In the process of decay, Radium-224 releases its short-lived Alpha-emitting atoms into the tumor," according to the company's website. "By diffusion and convection, these atoms disperse to a therapeutically significant range of several millimeters, delivering a high dose of radiation inside the tumor."

Sofer told the Times that the seeds are biocompatible and can remain inside an internal organ forever.

He said it could be used "to treat any kind of solid tumor," adding that it could be used concurrently with other cancer treatments.

"Right now, we have evidence for squamous cell carcinoma and we have 12 protocols that we are developing all around the world to treat patients with different solid tumors," Sofer told the Israeli news outlet.

Are there side effects?

No serious side effects were observed during clinical trials, according to company spokesperson Sara Jaehnert, adding that any "non-severe" side effects "were resolved within one to two months."

Why hasn't this type of radioactive material been used before?

Alpha particles are lethal to cancerous cells but they have an impractically short range in tissue, which means the particles had been unsuitable for cancer treatment, according to the company's website.

Trials have shown that DaRT can induce anti-tumor immunity. After the system is used, the body learns "what to find and what to destroy," Sofer said.

Have clinical trials started?

Clinical trials in humans started in early 2017. It was first tested on more than 6,000 animals.

There are currently two clinical trials for squamous cell carcinoma of the head, neck, and skin, which are taking place in Israel and Italy.

Sofer told the Times that preliminary results of the trials were "sensational."

All of the trials' patients responded to the treatment and the tumors disappeared in more than 70 percent of them.

What else?

The company said the treatment can teach a person's immune system recognize and destroy unhealthy cells.

"Cancer cells know how to 'hide' from the immune system," but "tumor ablation," which is what the company's therapy does, "can cause the formation of tumor-specific antigens that can then be recognized by the immune system," Jaehnert said.

Alpha Tau Medical is also working with cancer centers across the globe, including at least two locations in the U.S. — the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York and the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Texas.

"We pray and believe that by next year we will have the first approval in Europe and then we'll have approval in the US and Japan, with a very clear road map for each country," Sofer told the Times.
