With knowledge there is long life. You are the messengers to other people who have cancer or other chronic diseases, and they're suffering because they don't know. So if you know that there is another treatment that works as good or even beyond the standard treatment, I would encourage you to save their life because that's why I'm here too."
- M.A. Nezami, MD.
NEW!!! A bi-weekly journal from Dr.Nezami.

Meet our amazing staff from both centers in Fresno and Newport Beach, California.
Dr. Nezami is an inventor and innovator and has designed a patented novel method of treating patients with advanced cancer, called Modified Multi Molecular Targeted Epigenetic Therapy (MTET). With this method, during the last 7 years, he has successfully treated many patients, mostly with advanced stage four cancer who had failed all other conventional methods. National Cancer Institute and all their related oncology consultants have confirmed this method of treating patients with cancer as novel and effective. Several cancer institutions, including MD Anderson cancer center and private oncology centers have already started investigating his method in either preclinical or clinical settings, showing "extra ordinary" results.
Dr. Nezami has served as principal investigator by National Institute of Health ( NIH); for TACT trial and is currently involved both in research and publications( as coauthor) with National Cancer Institute (NCI) in the best case series of complimentary and alternative cancer therapies.
He also functions as speaker and medical consultant for Caris Life Sciences ( Caris Oncology Laboratory) and provides scientific expert review at Journal of Cancer Therapy ( JCT), British Journal of Medicine and Medical Research, ( BJM) as well as serving as editorial board and peer review expert in multidisciplinary scientific journals such as Biology and Medicine, Science International, Journal of Advances in Medical and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Cancer Studies, Asian Journal of Medicine and Health, International journal of cancer and tumor, Biology and Medicine, Archivum Immunologiae Et Therapiae Experimentalis,...
Due to his expertise in the area of epigenetic science and oncology , he has recently been honored to serve as the organizer and/or chair for several oncology conferences, such as ICOR ( International conference on Oncology and Radiology), key note speaker and board member for several international oncology conferences.( ex. Radiation oncology and anti cancer therapy, International Conference on Nuclear Medicine and radiation therapy,...)
His main area of interest are integrative oncology and epigenetics. He currently teaches and consults other physicians and oncologists and is extensively involved in research and pursuing clinical trials in this field.
