Traditional Chinese Medicine Dr Qi Xin Chen, Sydney, Australia Daniel has been seeing Dr Chen since diagnosis . He works alongside Western medicine and specializes in Cancer. His many testimonials and the full waiting room every day is proof of his credibility and success with treating many conditions. His philosophy is to treat the body so it fights the Cancer by building up the T- Cells and the immune system. Most western doctors are now accepting TCM as a very good complimentary healing process.

Japan- 67 yr old woman - in remission
A 67-year-old woman presented with a right inguinal mass in May 2006. CT scan showed lymph node involvement from the right inguinal to the common iliac and (18)F-FDG-PET revealed uptake in those areas. Biopsy results indicated Langerhans cell sarcoma (LCS). Interestingly, tumor cells expressed a high MIB1 index of 30%. We administered doxorubicin, ifosfamide, and mesna (AIM) chemotherapy, which were reported to effectively treat soft tissue sarcoma. After 5 courses of AIM therapy and involved-field radiation for residual diseases and a relapsed lesion on her right cervical node, she has remained in complete remission for more than 4 years. LCS is an intractable malignant disease and the optimal therapeutic strategy remains unclear. The AIM regimen combined with radiation therapy may be an effective treatment option for this disease.

The patients shared some clinical findings, such as multiorgan involvement of lymph nodes, skin, lung, bone marrow, and spleen....thus a poor prognosis
