An anti-cancer compound developed at USA Health Mitchell Cancer Institute is showing promise in pre-clinical studies – one involving pancreatic cancer and the other involving breast cancer. The compound, MCI-715, was developed by Gary Piazza, Ph.D., and his lab team at the Drug Discovery Research Center at MCI.
Comprehensive Neurological Care
At USA Health, our neurosciences team consists of neurologists, neurosurgeons and other specialists who care for patients with neurological issues, as well as teach and train other medical professionals. The care we provide patients is driven by the latest research and a strong desire to provide relief and hope to people living with brain or nervous system conditions.
We offer consultations, diagnosis and treatment plans based on the unique factors presented by each patient and based on years of experience that come from treating the most complex cases. Treatment often includes aggressive management of the disease through medication, therapy or a combination of these. In cases where surgery may be required, such as aneurysms, brain or spine tumors, epilepsy or disc issues, USA Health neurosurgeons are specially trained to use the latest technology and apply the most effective surgical techniques available.
