What are you currently working on?

„We started the Transfer Factor against Covid19.

The "Transfer Factor" are leukocytes that help increase the immune system of the patients. Our research that we are doing for 20 years has helped us face the Covid19. Today, many of the infected patients are leaving with a speedy recovery, in a period of 2 to 4 days. When the immune system is increased, the patient's body begins to develop antibodies capable of facing any foreign pathogen that enters the body.“

Esmeralda, a nurse at the Imss medical institution in the CDXM, has been one of our patients who, while doing her work taking care of patients with covid19 - caught it. She became serious and contain her father.

"He couldn't breathe, he had no sense of smell, no taste, his fever was very high from 38 to 40 degrees, he had fever delusions." she told us.


One of our scientists Dr. Enrique Pastrana administered "Transfer Factor" to her and her father, and after a few days, they both recovered 100%.

What is your contribution to SDG 3?

„We are committed and we have the responsibility as scientists to develop new technologies that allow us to improve the quality of life and health of our patients. There is still much to do, the work is very large and we have almost no financial support for our research, we do a lot with what little we have, but we are on the right track.“
