About Dr. Chang
Raymond Chang MD FACP is a physician practising in New York City with an interest in alternative strategies and treatments for cancer. A native of Hong Kong, he graduated from Brown University (BA magna cum laude ’79 and MD ’83) and trained at Waterbury (Yale) and New York (Cornell) hospitals before joining Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York in 1987. Dissatisfied with the regimented and dogmatic approaches in conventional cancer care, he founded the Meridian Medical Group in 1996 to focus on alternative cancer care. His research interests range from the use of Traditional Chinese Medicine, medicinal mushrooms and herbs to dendritic vaccines and cellular immuno-therapies plus everything in between for cancer treatment. He is currently president of the Institute of East-West Medicine and is responsible for developing and maintaining the world’s largest public database on anti-cancer Asian herbs. Some of his current research is focused on the use of off-label drugs for cancer, especially the potential of anti-malarials as anti-cancer agents. Those interested in his ideas should look at his book Beyond the Magic Bullet – the Anti-cancer Cocktail: A New Approach to Beating Cancer which has just been published.
