THE LAMPIDIS FOUNDATION is a
non profit 501(c) 3 charitable organization.
This provides funding for Dr Lampidis‘ ongoing cancer research that is focused on eradicating cancer by exploiting a trait common to most tumors; Increased sugar uptake. Although the PET scan has been around for more than two decades and has proven that tumors take up more glucose than normal cells it has not been successfully exploited for treatment. Dr.Lampidis has found that a sugar very similar to glucose, (2-deoxygluscose) , can be used to trick most if not all types of cancers to take it up selectively and because it cannot be utilized inside the cell for energy or for growth it essentially starves the tumor cell to death. His cell culture and laboratory animal work has led to FDA approval of a Phase I clinical trial that has recently been reported. The donations are now needed to bring his technology thru a series of other clinical trials before it can be used as a new universal treatment for most if not all cancers!
Although his work has been supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health, with the small amounts of funding available now and in the immediate future his work has reached the stage where he must turn to philanthropy in order to sustain as well as accelerate this groundbreaking research. As we are all aware, time is not on a cancer patient’s side. The time is now to support this potentially revolutionary treatment for cancer . We are expecting to initially raise $12 million dollars and this occasion presents a unique opportunity for exposure.
It is remarkable to think that Miami is on the front line in the race to bring the cure to cancer to those that need it most. Most of us will be touched by cancer at some time in our lives and there’s no time or opportunity to be wasted to get involved-Together we can make a difference.
