About the Integrative Cancer Treatment Center and Institute of Integrative BioOncology
Welcome to Integrative Cancer Treatment Center, Institute of Integrative BioOncology, located at the Houston Medical Center in Houston, Texas. We are proud to offer state-of-the-art cancer treatments backed by compassion, experience and competence. The Integrative Cancer Treatment Center(ICTC) is the clinical care section of Institute of Integrative BioOncology.
You are never prepared for a diagnosis of cancer. A diagnosis of advanced cancer is devastating news, and discovering that your cancer may not be curable or is not responsive to standard treatments such as chemotherapy can be even more devastating. At ICTC, we are equipped to help you and your family through the challenges.
At ICTC, we dedicate ourselves to improving the lives of cancer patients by providing service of exceptionally high quality and caring in a warm setting. We are pleased to offer specialized services, including tailored and personalized cancer treatments with a whole-person approach, medical acupuncture, and hyperthermia therapy, among others. Our friendly professional staff and experienced physicians are the foundation for the care we provide. Utilizing a full spectrum of sophisticated laboratory testings, conventional chemotherapies, novel targeted therapies, drug repositioning, as well as natural phytochemicals and medical acupuncture, ICTC is proud to have forged a productive partnership with research scientists, universities, institutions, and industries to provide the best possible care for the patient in a supportive and caring environment.
Institute of Integrative BiolOncology is at the forefront of discoveries in cancer. The goal of the translational research program is to customize the cancer treatment to the unique attributes of the cancers in individual patients, to develop anti-cancer cocktails using knowledge and information from integrative biology and bioinformatics, thereby improving the effectiveness, safety, and precision of cancer treatments.
We are a freestanding clinic in the greater Houston area that conducts early-phase and pilot cancer clinical trials and explore the future of cancer treatment through translational research with a focus on non-toxic or natural compounds. Our ongoing clinical research pushes the boundaries of medical progress. According to the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), our nation’s clinical and translational research system is not fully equipped to deliver on the promise of the most recent scientific and technological advances. At I2B, we are dedicated to designing and conducting smarter, faster, and more flexible clinical trials to identify effective treatments targeted to the patients’ individual biology, while simultaneously shifting away from trials that promise only marginal improvements in the outcome of the patients.
With this unified dedication to patient care, clinical research and laboratory exploration, coupled with a commitment to implementing the latest therapies and technologies, I2B offers unmatched depth of care and scope of services in the field of cancer medicine and integrative oncology. The result of our strong emphasis on translational research and personalized medicine is the rapid transfer of newly developed treatment modalities from the research stage to life-changing patient care.
Your health is one of your most important assets. Helping you maintain good health, or improving your health to its most optimum level, are our reasons for existence. We provide amenities that are not typically found in a traditional medical oncology practice, making I2B a sanctuary for health, wellness, and healing.
