$ 0.00

Global Cures, Inc., is devoted to promoting clinical research on scientifically promising, cost-effective treatments for cancer, through repurposing existing drugs.

Our guests, Vikas and Vidula Sukhatme, co-founders of Global Cures, discuss how the immune system could be activated to fight cancer, and how venerable generic drugs such as aspirin, metformin, cimetidine and nitroglycerin might be used to dramatically reduce the risk of recurrence.
