Dr. Anthony Payne’s Donor Granulocyte Program
Finds Success in Treatment of Late Stage Cancer Patients
Dr. Anthony Payne, a long standing member of the Akamai University faculty, came up with a novel cancer treatment approach in which cancer-fighting granulocytes from young people are pooled and infused by intravenous means daily for ten straight days. A firm in Mexico dba Nova Cells Institute of Mexico originally contracted Payne to come up with a suitable cancer eradication approach during 2010 and following receipt of his method commenced carefully orchestrated experimental use of it in dying cancer patients for whom conventional treatments had been exhausted or simply did not exist. This work was done at several major medical institutions in Baja, Mexico and involved leading hematologists and other medical specialists. The first patient treated was an American businessman who had advanced prostate cancer with spread to nearby bones and other organs. He was, in fact, told by his American oncologist that unless something totally unexpected happened he would likely pass away in a matter of weeks. Following his ten day course of donor granulocyte infusions he experienced ultra-rapid tumor regression and was in complete remission within about 3 months time. Following this and other clinical successes, the treatment method was made available to other advanced cancer patients who also had stellar responses. However, because there is a <1% chance of a serious immune reaction (rejection) only people with advanced, typically end stage cancer have been and are approved for treatment. To-date the donor granulocyte method has consistently resulted in often rapid tumor die-off and many instances of significant partial and total remission. Readers can learn more by going to:

The Challenges we Face
Roughly 1.3 billion people live in absolute poverty with nearly 25 million being added to their numbers each year. Hundreds of millions of people have no running water to drink or bathe themselves. One hundred million people do not have homes to live in and must spend their lives on the streets and pavements, their children never knowing the security of a suitable shelter. (World Bank and the United Nations)
Already, more than ten percent of the earth's vegetated surface has been degraded, an area larger than India and China combined. This desertification, caused by overgrazing domestic animals, over-cultivation, salinization, and deforestation, has already begun to impact over 35 percent of the land surface of the Earth and the situation is worsening (United Nations Environmental Program).
The children of many nations suffer appalling abuses at the hands of their own countrymen and represent a huge and voiceless population seldom represented in the international human rights arena. Street children are frequently abused by police, or imprisoned in inhumane conditions. Because of their vulnerable condition, young people are often used as soldiers, and bonded laborers. Governments are known to perpetrate or acquiesce in systematic human rights violations against women, citing customs and rigid concepts of privacy as justifications for the subordination of women. (Human Rights Watch)
Human culture now has the potential to inflict irreversible damage on the environment and on its life sustaining systems and resources. Already, critical stress suffered by our environment is clearly manifest in the air, water, and soil, our climate, and plant and animal species. Should this deterioration be allowed to continue, we can expect to alter the living world to the extent that it will be unable to sustain life, as we know it. (Union of Concerned Scientists)
More than half the World population lacks access to the badly needed essential drugs. More than 150 million children are born every year worldwide and approximately 10% of these will never see their fifth birthday. One child dies every other second, due to malnutrition, hunger and poverty. It is estimated that one quarter of the World population is subject to chronic intestinal parasitic infections, which have insidious effects on growth, malnutrition, and cognitive functions.

The Akamai Model of Education
Traditional research literature shows overwhelmingly that distance learning can achieve cognitive outcomes equal to those
achieved by the more traditional means of educational delivery for adults. In fact, distance learning is understood to have
an advantage over more traditional strategies when learning is closely aligned and
related to the reality of life and work, such as under conditions where students remain fully engaged with their
professional tasks while under the mentorship of qualified academics.
