Turkish Patients' Interest in Cuba Increases

Cuba, which has made great progress in the treatment of diseases such as vitiligo, alopecia, psoriasis and moon blindness, especially cancer, attracts great interest from patients in Türkiye.

QBA MediTours managers, who mediate those who want to go to Cuba especially for cancer vaccination, emphasized that there is a serious demand from Türkiye.

Uğur Yücel, Founder of QBA MediTours, which has been officially approved by the Cuban Ministry of Health, the Embassy and the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, stated the following: “There are many people in our country who want to go to Cuba especially for cancer treatment. The reports of cancer patients who apply to us are sent to Cuba by our company. Specialist oncologists inform us as soon as possible whether our patient is suitable for the treatments applied in Cuba. If the reports are approved, we ensure that the patient is transferred to Cuba for treatment. If there is a suitable treatment for our patient, the Cuban Ministry of Health informs us what kind of treatment will be applied, how long it will last and how much it will cost.”

Cancer Vaccine Has No Negative Effects

“Cuba has vaccine treatments and alternative biotherapy. Treatment is applied for many types of cancer, especially head and neck, colon, stomach, pancreas, breast and soft tissue cancers. Apart from these, cancer types for which vaccine treatment is applied are non-small cell (non-small cell NSCLC) lung cancer, brain (glioblastoma) tumors".

This vaccine does not attack tumors directly. It targets a protein called “epidermal growth factor”, which is produced by the tumor and circulates in the blood. This protein commands cells to grow and divide. This vaccine prevents this protein from sticking to cancer cells. The vaccine treatments in Cuba are not a preventive vaccine, they prevent the growth and metastasis of existing tumors. Late-stage cancer becomes a disease that people live with. The aim of the treatment is to turn cancer into a chronic disease,” Uğur Yücel said, adding that the professors applying the treatment said, ”We do not see any side effects even in the subcutaneous application area. This is a great advantage.”

Arif Sağ also went to Cuba for treatment in December…

Uğur Yücel, Founder of QBA MediTours, continued as follows: “Our esteemed artist Arif Sağ, who suffered from lung cancer, traveled to Cuba through our company and received treatment. Arif Sağ underwent a treatment method known as “quality of life program”, which strengthens the immune system and reduces the negative effects of chemotherapy-radiotherapy. The duration of this treatment in Cuba lasted about 5 days. As QBA MediTours, we aim to be with our patients physiologically and psychologically from the beginning to the end of the process. We become the family of the patients who go to Cuba from Türkiye. I can say that we are doing everything we can to help patients get through this process in the easiest way possible”.
