There is a Top 10 Most Wanted List of Killers on the loose, and none of them are people.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT’S “MOST WANTED” LIST
- Alzheimer’s Disease (and other Dementias)
- Auto-Immune Diseases: Arthritis, Asthma, MS, Lupus, Crohn’s, Type 1 Diabetes, HIV / AIDS, etc
- Infectious Diseases: Polio, Ebola, etc
Besides setting aside our own funds for these endeavors, We will also offer a Tax Deduction (and We won’t be offering many of these) to anyone who wishes to further fund these important causes.
These Centers will cost $300 million each and serve a population of 15 million people
22 Facilities are need. This will lead to a Bank Loan of $6.6 Billion.
- Dementia Research Center
- Auto-Immune Disease Research Center
- Infectious Disease Research Center
- Parkinson’s Research Center
- Schizophrenia Research Center
- Prosthetic Research Center
A $1.6 Billion Loan will help build these Centers.
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
- 364-512 new cases per 100,000 population each year
- $120 million on centers for proton therapy
- University of Nebraska Medical Center and The Nebraska Medical Center, both in Omaha, recently announced preliminary plans for an estimated $370 million cancer center. The center would include three facilities: a multidisciplinary outpatient clinic, a research tower and a hospital tower dedicated to oncology patients. An ambulatory care clinic would also be built to provide outpatient services for other specialties (98 labs for research, 108 beds for treatment, 32 rooms for treatment)
TAKEAWAY: We would need to build 20-22 Abramson Cancer Center-sized facilities to take care of everyone.
$300 million x 22 facilities = $6.6 billion, yields $11.3 Billion, $31.21 million a month or $374.5 million a year cost.
- 3,000 employees – $40k X 3000 = $120 million
- 200 doctors – $400k X 200 = $80 million
- 300 researchers – $60k X 300 = $18 million
TOTAL – $218 million X 22 = $4.8 Billion
Cell Transplant Research
At John Hopkins: High Tech Specs: Robot-assisted cancer surgeries, Signal transduction, Cell cycle regulation, DNA repair, Immunology, Plasmapherisis, Stem cell transplants, Melanoma vaccine research.
Hospital of the University of PA – Abramson Cancer Center – Philadelphia, PA, United States – Website
“The Abramson Cancer Center at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania is the best cancer center because of its focus on innovation, translational medicine, and cutting-edge technology. Along with one of the largest clinical trials programs in the country, Abramson has “Translational Centers of Excellence” for breast, blood, lung, and pancreatic cancers that ensure Penn patients receive state-of-the-art care. There’s almost no procedure that Penn won’t do; physicians perform bone marrow and stem cell transplantation; hormone, photodynamic, and proton therapy, and many others. Penn researchers also have a history of important breakthroughs and are responsible for establishing the current treatment standards for lung cancer.” [High Tech Specs: Bone marrow and stem cell transplant program, Cancer risk evaluation program, GI Cancer Program, Genitournary cancer program, HIV oncology program, Melanoma and Pigmented Lesion Program, Proton Therapy, Telegenics Program.]
This renowned cancer center currently sees more than 70,000 outpatient visits as well as 9,000 inpatient discharges – 230,000 outpatient visits annually and delivers more than 37,000 chemotherapy treatments, over 66,000 radiation treatments and 230 stem cell transplants each year. The center is home to more than 400 basic, translational, and clinical scientists who work together to advance new treatments and cures for all kinds of cancers. $302-million cost [Could cover an area 15.5 million population in size]
This—and other diseases on our Top 10 list— will need funding, if only to determine causal effects that may guide us to lowering these disturbing numbers.
