Mission Statement

AVM Mission Statement

We are here to develop products that will end human exploitation in biomedical research and medical treatments.  

Human exploitation can be physical, for instance, black market sales of organs for transplant; it can be financial, for example, the financial toxicities of the newer cancer and autoimmunity treatments because of their high non-reimbursed price tags; it can be neglect, for instance, the absence of uninjurious medical options for vulnerable patient populations such as the elderly,  children, the poor or disabled.  For example, children treated with chemotherapy have a 3 to 13 fold increased risk of getting another cancer within 20-30 years of treatment, yet, chemotherapy remains the standard regimen for children.
