GcMAF (Gc Protein derived Macrophage Activating Factor)
GcMAF Therapy Case Reports
GcMAF Therapy Case ReportsBelow are short case reports of our clinical experience using GcMAF immunotherapy in our clinics at Saisei Mirai. Most patients are on a variety of both conventional and complementary therapies, and most commonly they have come to us after conventional therapies have failed. Since our therapies are non-toxic they can be used successfully at any stage to improve quality of life (QOL), prolong life and cure the disease. Common therapies at our clinic include:
- Sonodynamic therapy (SDT) and photodynamic therapy (PDT)
- Coley’s Vaccine (Coley’s Toxins)
- Local hyperthermia (Thermotron RF8) and whole body hyperthermia
- High-dose intravenous vitamin C
- Alpha lipoic acid (oral and intravenous)
- Maitake MD-fraction Mushroom Extract
- Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)

61 year old male Hepatitis C virus (HCV) patient from Israel with sarcoma treated by Dr Eyal Attias
- High Dose GcMAF
- Ozone therapy
Patient information and summary of result:
- 61 year old male patient from Israel with severe liver disease due to Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection.
- Left high above knee amputation + left Lobectomy due to malignant sarcoma with lung metastasis.
- Patient also suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) – a lung disease, congestive heart failure (CHF), hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus (HbA1c <7).
- Due to very severe condition, patient was unable to take conventional therapies for HCV and instead opted for High Dose GcMAF and ozone therapy.
- Metastatic tumors shrank and his hepatitis C viral load in the blood decreased from extremely high levels of 1 billion/ml to 18 million/ml.
- The good result was considered to be due to the combination of High Dose GcMAF and ozone therapy.
- Patient was refused financial support by the Israeli Ministry of Defense, Veterans Handicap Rehabilitation Organization, for the medical treatment, and so he applied to the Supreme Court of Israel.
- The high court judge asked Prof. Ran Oren at Hadassah University Hospital in Jerusalem to give professional medical review of the case.
- Prof. Oren consulted with colleagues around the world. He concluded that in all his career of more than 30 years he never saw a patient with such severe liver disease due to Hepatitis C virus who survived like this patient.
- After confirming the patient’s miraculous recovery, the Supreme Court ordered that GcMAF and ozone therapy treatment be continued until full recovery receiving financial support from the Israeli Ministry of Defense.
Female aged 64 with lung cancer, adenocarcinoma, stage 4
Integrative Therapies: Iressa targeted therapy, 1500 ng High Dose GcMAF 2 times weekly IM injection for 6 months (48 times total), Regional Hyperthermia, 8 times (Thermotron RF8), 4.5 mg Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) daily.
Primary doctor was surprised because the result expected from the targeted therapy was only stable disease (rather than curative) because of advanced stage, but the tumor completely disappeared with only some scar tissue remaining in the lungs.
Patient achieved complete response by August 2013.
- In remission: Patient is continuing 1500 ng High Dose GcMAF 1 time/week (48 doses) for about 1 year to reduce the risk of recurrence.
Male aged in 70s with glioblastoma multiforme brain cancer

62 year old female with uterine cancer and lymph node metastasis, stage 4B
Patient was diagnosed stage 4B after initial surgery in February 2011. Pathological diagnosis was Serous Adenocarcinoma.
Prior treatment was 2 times chemotherapy in March 2011 with Carboplatin and Paclitaxel. After 2 times chemotherapy Pet CT showed recurrence in the left iliac artery and lymph nodes, and tumor markers were elevated. Patient then had second surgery of lymph nodes metastasis in the pelvis and left inguinal region and in addition prophylactic surgery.
In July 2011 patient had more chemotherapy with CDDP and radiation therapy, but new recurrence was found in the lymph node near the abdominal aorta which was followed by a fourth operation in November 2011, and at the same time radiation therapy near the abdominal aorta.
Patient presented at Saisei Mirai Clinics in Osaka in December 2011 after extensive prior treatment. Chemotherapy had been discontinued due to weakening condition of patient from side effects.
Immunotherapy was started at our clinic from December 2011, initially with Regional Hyperthermia, 400 mg/day Maitake MD-fraction and Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN). Maitake MD-fraction and LDN were continued long-term. Coley Vaccine therapy (Coley Toxin’s) was started in January 2012 and High Dose GcMAF (1500 ng, 0.5 ml) from February 2012.
Intravenous Coley Vaccine, total 110 times, starting at 5 times 1st week, then 2 times 2nd week, followed by 5 times 3rd week, and so on, finishing with 1 time per week at the end. High Dose GcMAF (total 48 times), once per week, over a period of 1 year.
By 2013 patient achieved complete remission. No tumor was visible in CT scan and tumor marker was at the bottom end of the normal range.
71 year old male with malignant thymoma (cancer of the thymus gland) and lung metastases
High Dose GcMAF (1500 ng, 0.5 ml) was administered once a week (total 48 times) together with weekly high-dose intravenous Vitamin C (total 56 times). One year later, the patient still has good quality of life (QOL) with stable disease and no change in the size of the tumor. Patient discontinued GcMAF because he felt the treatment had been successful, however 6 months later the CT showed tumor growth. After this result the patient decided to continue treatment with GcMAF. Currently patient’s condition is stable with good QOL.
74 year old male with prostate cancer and multiple bone metastases
High Dose GcMAF (1500 ng, 0.5 ml) was administered once a week (total 24 times) together with weekly high-dose intravenous vitamin C (total 39 times). Local Hyperthermia (Thermotron RF8) was added once a week (total 19 times). The patient had complete response. Primary tumor and multiple bone metastases have all disappeared according to the bone scintigram (bone scan/bone scintigraphy) and MRI.
72 year old female with colon cancer and metastatic liver tumor, ovarian tumor and peritonitis carcinomatosa
First the patient had surgery to remove the tumor in the colon and the ovary was also removed. Then she took High Dose GcMAF (1500 ng, 0.5 ml) treatment once a week (total 48 times) and high-dose intravenous vitamin C once or twice a week (total 66 times). During this period of time, she took targeted radiation therapy (Novalis Tx Radiosurgery) to the liver tumor at a dose of 55Gy. After one year’s treatment, PET CT scan showed no recurrence of the tumor. She is still in complete remission.
76 year old female with pulmonary infections due to nontuberculous mycobacteria of the lung
3-Feb-2011 chest X-ray before GcMAF therapy showed active infiltrations in the lungs. 22-Nov-2012 chest X-ray after GcMAF therapy showed only scar tissue without active infiltrations in the lungs after treatment.
Patient took conventional therapy with all available tuberculosis antibiotics for 10 years with good effect initially. After 10 years of treatment, tolerance to the drugs increased and therapy lost effectiveness. After this she decided to start high-dose intravenous vitamin C (25 g) once a week (total 239 times) over a 4 year period and she took High Dose GcMAF (1500 ng, 0.5 ml) once a week (total 41 times) for about 1 year near the end of the 4 year period. After 4 years of treatment her chest CT scan showed only scar tissue without active infiltrations in the lung.
Female with lung cancer – Low-dose (palliative) radiation plus GcMAF
One month after GcMAF therapy plus one-time low-dose palliative radiation for lung cancer. Right image shows tumor shrank by half. Radiologists treating the patient were surprised to see such a strong cancer killing effect which is not expected with small doses of radiation.
Advanced stage lung cancer patient had low-dose palliative radiation to their right lung (left side on the scan) to treat cough and breathing difficulty caused by cancer. This radiation therapy was not designed to have significant effect on the cancer, but was simply to treat the symptoms. After one-time palliative radiation treatment and High Dose GcMAF (1500 ng, 0.5 ml) therapy, patient’s right-side lung (viewed on the left in the photo), shrank by half and tumor marker also decreased by half from CEA 890 ng/ml to 426 ng/ml, 2 months later.
Radiologists treating the patient were amazed at the good effects, which were not common or expected with this kind of low-dose radiation treatment. Symptoms greatly improved with a significant decrease in cough and improved breathing, and patient remained active with good quality of life. We believe that the use of multimodality integrative therapy of GcMAF plus a low dose of radiation was enough to be effective, avoiding serious side effects of regular high-dose radiation. What is more surprising is that this occurred at the very advanced stage having completed all available therapies (such as chemotherapy) which is when treatments become less effective as the cancer becomes resistant and difficult to treat. When using GcMAF therapy, better results are seen with local treatments such as radiation (avoiding the bone marrow) over systemic conventional chemotherapies which harm the immune system.
