What is Second Opinion?A second opinion is a full assessment of your medical history, diagnosis, and treatment plan by a medical professional. The counseling doctor will confirm your diagnosis and treatment or suggest an alternative diagnosis and / or treatment plan. This doctor may recommend additional diagnostic tests. Research has shown that between 20% and 60% of patients have a diagnosis or treatment plan change after their second opinion.
When should I get a second opinion?We believe you always have the right to request a second opinion. Generally speaking, patients ask for a second opinion when they do not determine their diagnosis or if the treatment options are complex, risky, or unpleasant. In particular, you may consider a second opinion: – when your doctor recommends major surgery – when you are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness – when you are diagnosed with a rare disease or prescribe a long-term prescription – if your doctor recommends a treatment option that you are not sure about.
Who are the medical experts who gave me the second opinion?Second opinion doctors are the best specialists in the specialty field. They work in their best hospitals, do clinical research to lead diagnosis and treatments, lead leaders in professional associations, and teach at top medical universities.
How is the second opinion provided and how long does it take?Once you submit your request and complete your medical file, the second opinion will be sent back to you within 48 hours. To ensure that this process is done for you as quickly as possible, the experienced (and friendly!) Care Team will assist you in preparing a medical case history. Then the medical specialist will review your problem and write a second opinion. Once complete, you will receive an email notification and PDF version of your second opinion. We would also be happy to send the second opinion to you by mail if you wish.

Vaccines Developed by Cuba
Nimotuzumab (CIMAher) EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor) target therapy containing anti-EGFR antibodies for cancer types is the only chemotherapy-free therapy used for cancer disease. It is one of the most important drugs developed by Cuba in the treatment of brain cancer. Nimotuzumab is now being tried in the treatment of colon, breast, liver and stomach cancers.
CIMAvax – EGF is the first 3rd and 4th stage non-small cell lung cancer vaccine in the world found and developed by the molecular immunology center, genetic engineering and biotechnology center in Cuba.
Racotumomab (Vaxira) is the second non-small cell lung cancer vaccine developed by the molecular immunology center in Cuba.
Other Cancer Types
VIDATOX is an additional treatment drug used in the treatment of various oncology diseases. The most obvious benefits of this drug are;

Blue scorpion venom reduction, which is common with the homeopathic treatment method applied in Cuba, is a method that has been put into practice.
Diabetic Foot Ulcer
Heberprot-P is a drug developed by the Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology in Cuba for the treatment of severe diabetic foot ulcers. It is applied directly into the wound. According to official data, approximately 180,000 diabetic foot ulcer patients have been treated with this treatment and 75% of them have succeeded in eliminating the risk of amputation.
Growth factor, especially epidermal growth factor receptor (EGF) intensity is decreased in diabetic patients. EGF is an important growth factor that regulates cell growth and cell growth by binding to epidermal growth factor receptors (EGFR). When the amount of EGF decreases, the healing of wounds is greatly reduced, and consequently amputation may be required. When Heberprot-P is applied, the recovery time increases continuously and evolving.
In Cuba, Heberprot-P is applied for patients with a poor course of disease, chronic wounds that do not heal, and patients who do not respond to traditional treatment methods.
For Vitiligo, Melagenina Plus ointment, an alcoholic extract obtained from the mixture of human placenta and Melagenina and calcium, is used in Cuba. This ointment developed by Dr. Carlos Manuel Miyares Cao, acts by stimulating the formation of melanocytes again at the edges and / or inside the affected area. As a result of the studies, it was observed that it was effective in 86% of the patients. Melagenina Plus is safe to use in children, pregnant or lactating women, and the elderly, and no side effects have been observed.
Alopecia / Ringworm
Treatment of this disease in Cuba is carried out using Piloactive Lotion and Piloactive Shampoo. It provides an effect in the human placenta, regulating the sebaceous glands, providing better blood circulation in the affected area, triggering hair regrowth and strengthening the hair roots. In the results of the application, the success rate of both lotion and shampoo is 76%.
Piloactive products are safe to use in children, pregnant and lactating women, and the elderly, and there were no side effects.
Coriodermina, a topical, water-soluble gel developed from the human placenta by Dr. Carlos Miyares Cao, is one of the most effective treatments for psoriasis in Cuba.
In the studies performed, it was determined that all lesions were cleaned in 84.6% of the patients, there was visible progress in 8.5%, minimum formation was observed in 5% and none occurred in 1.9%.
The effective success of Coriodemina is thanks to blocking epidermic cells and regulating its speed, neutralizing the molecules responsible for cell communication. Coriodemina is applied directly to psoriatic lesions and is absorbed by the middle layer of skin, which makes the first defense against heat, light, infection and injuries. The effect depends on the age of the patient, the area of the affected area, how long the patient has had psoriasis and the correct application of the treatment. Coriodemina is extremely safe to use in children, pregnant and lactating women and the elderly, and no side effects have been observed.
Night blindness is known as the problem of not seeing clearly at night or in dim light.
Surgical intervention is very important for the treatment of night blindness.
In Centro Internacional de Retinosis Pigmentaria Camilo Cienfuegos in Havana, this ailment has been studied and a treatment method has been developed for more than 20 years. The method, which includes very specific surgical techniques and therapies applied to it as a whole, has managed to prevent blindness by stopping its progression in hundreds of patients, although it does not completely eliminate the disease.
