Conquering Cancer: A vision for Africa

American Cancer Hospital - Nigeria

American Cancer Center in Imo State in NigeriaDirections to the American Cancer Hospital - Nigeria

This enterprise is a visionary project of IHC (International Healthcare Consulting) in the US (Rochester, Minessota) and hence the name "American Cancer Hospital - Nigeria". The Board consists of Prominent Medical Professionals and business folks dedicated in the development of high quality healthcare facilities.

A mission opens up:

American Cancer hospital today is open 24 hours with all the essential services for medical care with special focus on Cancer. The hospital was officially inaugurated on 20th Mrach 2019. It has all the facilities to treat all kinds of cancers.

A very important hallmark of our work in the US has been the pursuit of Quality. We are ambitious to pursue this track of excellence in the healthcare delivery specially with regards to Cancer in Africa.

We stand for Quality.

We have an excellent team of both overseas and local staff who are passionate about conquering cancer.

The story of Cancer in Nigeria is not a very pleasant one as the incidence of cancer cases are sky-rocketing every year.

Cancer statistics in Nigeria - WHO

According to WHO in 2018, about 70,000 people died because of cancer in Nigeria, that is to say about 119 people die every single day in Nigeria duew to Cancer. Translating this into layman's language, four out of five people diagnosed with cancer stand to die of cancer! These alarming incidence was the main reason, IHC directed it resources in tacking and destroying this deadly disease. We are bringing to Nigeria, years of experience and expertise from the US. We have developed standard operating procedures (SOPs) in diagnosing and managing all forms of cancers.

Our vision is to establish one of the best cancer hospital not only in Nigeria but in Africa.

 

Total Population

195,875,239

No. of new cancer cases

115,590

No. of deaths

70,327

No. of prevalent cases

211,052

There is yet no national cancer registry in Nigeria and so the few places that record cancer cases present a grim picture. Hence, the above numbers are grossly underestimated. The above statistics is from Globocan 2018.

Cancer is a peculiar disease in the sense that when a person has cancer, their entire body is affected.

No two cancers are the same and so each individual has to be assessed separately and treatment options planned accordingly.


 

WHAT IS CANCER?

All cancer is the result of mutations in the human genome. Mutations may be caused by aging, exposure to chemicals, radiation, hormones or other factors in the body and the environment. Over time, a number of mutations may occur in a single cell, allowing it to divide uncontrollably and grow in a way that becomes a mass of cancerous cells.

4 facts you should know about cancer

IS CANCER CURABLE:

The short answer is “YES” ! However, this must be understood with a caveat.

IF cancer is detected early and treated properly, there is a very good chance that cancer cells or even the tumor growth can be totally destroyed. This emphasizes the importance of screening and early detection.

However, there is great excitement in the air. The recent event of Covid 19 and the development of vaccines against it using mRNA has thrust this technology into the forefront. It now is apparent that many genetic defects at the molecular level can indeed be targeted using the CRISPR Cas9 gene editing tool. Although numerous gene editing tools have been present for decades, the recent application of this technology has broken through many barriers and now scientists all over the world are busy licensing and patenting new products and techniques to defeat cancer at its own game.

It is precisely why we have taken a lot of courage to state clearly as part of our advertisement against cancer that “Cancer is curable”. A few years ago, this would have been thought to be ridiculous. Not so any more. As an example, Sickle cell anemia is amongst the first diseases which have been successfully treated using CRISPR Cas9 technology with 100% success.

HOPE FOR A CURE FOR SICKLE CELL ANEMIA

Like Sickle Cell Anemia, today we know numerous genetic mutations which cause cancer. These can be directly targeted and corrected by CRIPSR Cas9 Technology. In addition innovative immunotherapy products using CRISPR will soon be available in the market. So in essence it is only a matter of time when we will see major breakthrough products in immunotherapy and gene therapy to conquer numerous cancers.

YES CANCER IS CURABLE.
