I did my Neurology training in UP PGH and fellowship in Neuro-Oncology at Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland. I was the first fully trained neuro oncologist to practice in the Philippines. Although I still see general neurology patients, my specialty is primary brain tumors, brain and spine metastatic tumors.
Gene therapy is the future of the therapeutic medicine. This experimental therapy involves genetic manipulation to prevent or treat specific conditions. It works in three ways – by replacing the faulty gene, deactivating the faulty gene, or by introducing a new gene that suppresses the activity of the faulty gene. Currently, gene therapy is being explored for the treatment of specific cancers, neurological disorders, inherited disorders, and infectious diseases.
