KEYTRUDA AND OXYGEN FOR TREATING CANCERS | Majid Ali MD
Keytruda (TM) is claimed to be a brand new, highly effective, and non-toxic cancer drug. It was approved by the FDA in summer of 2014 for treating cancers of lung, liver, colon, melanoma and some other cancers. This would be great news if doctors without financial ties with the drug maker can validate the initial claims of drug efficacy. It seems safe to predict that this will happen only if the oxygen systems of the body can be preserved. It would be a serious mistake to think that Keytruda can eradicate cancer long-term if the health-preserving oxygen systems of the body are weakened.
Oxygen Protocol for Cancer Control
I tell my patients receiving chemotherapy for cancer to be very diligent to keep their oxygen systems working well because the long-term results in most cases depend more on oxygen than on chemotherapy. For preserving oxygen systems, my priorities are:
- spiritual healing
- gentle daily bowel-blood-liver detox
- gentle limbic exercise
- castor and other oils
- nutrient supplementation
Oxygen, the Motivator; Oxygen, the Disciplinarian
Oxygen is the organizing principal of human biology and governs the aging process. In the evolutionary “oxygen kaleidoscope of life,” one would expect oxygen to be both a great motivator and a strict disciplinarian for all cells in the body, promoting cellular perfection of means and damming down cellular confusion of goals when that develops—old Albert had it right. Oxygen has its own order of gas pedals and brake pedals.
The oxygen kaleidoscope of life has many molecular checkpoint pathways to prevent mutated and malignant (cancer by another name) cells from multiplying rapidly, forming tumor masses, and then striking out with distant metastasis. Some of these pathways negatively regulate cellular defense functions—functioning as “cellular brakes” so to speak—of T and B lymphocytes. Under oxygen-deprived conditions, malignant cells survive by activating these cellular brakes and disabling cellular defenses. Notable among such cellular self-braking pathways are BRAF, CTLA-4, and PD-1 systems.
Keytruda, the First PD-1 De-Braking Cancer Drug
Keytruda is the first member of a novel class of drugs that facilitates death of cancer cells by inhibiting the action of one PD-1 de-braking system. This is the basis of the claim that Keytruda can destroy many aggressive cancers without using cytotoxic chemotherapy. Of course, similar claims were made about many other cancer drugs that proved false. Notably among them is the case of Avastin (TM), an angiogenessis-inhibiting drug, which earned billions for its makers before the FDA revoked the drug approval.
Like other new cancer drugs, Keytruda (generic name, pembrolizumab) is very expensive. Merck, the maker of the drug, revealed that it will cost about $12,500 a month (about $150,000 a year).
Oxygen Protocol for Cancer Control
I offer details of my Oxygen Protocol for Cancer Control in my two-volume series entitled The Crab, Oxygen and Cancer. Volume I: The Dysox Model of Cancer and Volume II: The Oxygen Protocol for the Treatment of Cancer (2007).

● Cancer Seminar 1 – The First Encounter
In this 40-minute video seminar, Professor Majid Ali, M.D. addresses the crucial issues of coping with the initial stress of cancer diagnosis, second opinion on pathology diagnosis, finding the right professionals for advice, learning about the treatment options, and making the right choice of doctors as well as the optimal treatment plan.
● Cancer Seminar 2 – The Oxygen Model of Cancer
In this 40-minute video seminar, Professor Majid Ali, M.D. presents his Oxygen Model of Cancer and describes its crucial clinical significance. The core of this model is that a cancer cell is a fermenting cell. The Oxygen Model of Cancer is an extension of his Oxygen Model of Health and Disease.
● Cancer Seminar 3 – Should You Have Surgery for Cancer?
In this 40-minute video seminar, Professor Majid Ali, M.D. discusses when it is a grave mistake to unduly delay surgery for the early removal of cancer mass and when surgery is not an acceptable approach. He tsrongly recommends not only consulting an experienced surgeon but also to consult a senior and experienced pathologist for making an informed intelligent decision.
● Cancer Seminar 4 – Radiotherapy for Cancer
In this 50-minute video seminar, Professor Majid Ali, M.D. discusses when it is a grave mistake to refuse radiotherapy for treating cancer and when radiotherapy is not an acceptable approach. He strongly recommends not only consultation with an experienced radiotherapy specialist but also with an experienced pathologist for making an informed intelligent decision.
● Cancer Seminar 5 – Chemotherapy – Should You Take It?
In this 45-minute video seminar, Professor Majid Ali, M.D. offers valuable information to assist people to make informed decision of whether or not to take chemotherapy for cancer. He explains the crucial difference between overall survival (OS) and the falsely claimed benefits of “progression-free survival (PFS) without any true survival benefits of toxic chemotherapy.
● Cancer Seminar 6 – Oxygen Protocol for Treating Cancer
In this 30-minute video seminar, Professor Majid Ali, M.D. outlines his Oxygen Model of Treating Cancer. He considers it essential for all patients being treated with surgery, radiotherapy, or chemotherapy. Oxygen therapies integrated in this Protocol are mandatory for restoring and strengthening oxygen’s cancer-fighting roles, including boosting the immune system.
● Cancer Seminar 7 – Foods for Controlling and Killing Cancer
In this 40-minute video seminar, Professor Majid Ali, M.D. describes the principles of sound nutrition for creating metabolic conditions that strength the body’s oxygen-regulated cancer-killing mechanisms. He explains why some food are good and others not so. His dietary guidelines are easy to follow. He illustrates his main points with specific examples of desirable food choices and offers a simplied and highly nutritious anti-cancer diet plan.
● Cancer Seminar 8 – Cancer Killing Spices
In this 40-minute video seminar, Professor Majid Ali, M.D. informs about his preferred spices to be included in his integrative plans for treating cancer, including turmeric, ginger, garlic, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, and cardimum. He explains their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, acid-fighting, clot-preventing, and other benefits. Specifically, he explains how spice therapies should be rotated to maximize their cancer-fighting roles.
● Living With and Beyond Cancer
In these 40-minute video seminar, Professor Majid Ali, M.D. presents a subject which he considers to be of central importance after the diagnosis and initial treatment of cancer. He introduced the phrase “Living With and Beyond Cancer” for a way of living with cancer as fully and functionally as possible with equanimity. It is to accept fear, anxiety, and life-limitations , until one reaches a state in which these are not issues most of the time. One does not take this journey without many missteps and faltering. This life of learning, understanding, and knowing is usually difficult in the beginning and becomes easier with continued spiritual growth and enlightenment. Cancer diagnosis is expected to unleashes panic, which leads to two paths: a path of continued panic and a path of Living With and Beyond Cancer.
● Cancer CLL Leukemia
In this 40-minute video seminar, Professor Majid Ali, M.D. discusses the causes, clinical features, types, and biologic course of CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia) and its variants called SLL and PLL). He addresses the important question of when not to do chemotherapy and when to consider it.. He describes his unifying Oxygen Model of Cancer, and offers guidelines for simple, safe, and effective natural therapies for boosting the immune system for controlling CLL, SLL, and PLL.
● Cancer- Fermentation-Inflammation Connections Seminar
In this 40-minute video seminar, Professor Majid Ali, M.D. brings together the basic scientific facts of metabolism of cancer, fermentation, and inflammation. He explains his reasons why in the context of cancer, the word inflammation should be replaced with fermentation. Rather than inform, the term inflammation creates layers of darkness. By contrast, the term fermentation clearly indicates lack of funtional oxygen and rapid buildup of acids, alcohols, and toxic byproducts of interrupted metabolism of sugars, fats, and proteins to release ATP energy. This knowledge provides the scientific basis of intelligent and effective natural therapies to be employed alone or with surgery, and when necessary chemo and radiotherapy.
● Cancer – False Cancer, Unnecessary Surgery and Chemotherapy Seminar
In this 40-minute video seminar, Professor Majid Ali, M.D. addresses the crucial subject of when something is considered to be cancer but in reality is not. He cites specific examples from his four decades of experience as a surgeon, pathologist, and integrative physcian to illustrate his main points. He underscores the importance of second pathology opinion and opinions from integrative physicians. A July 2013 report in the Journal of American Medicine fully validates his observations and thinking.
● Cancer Pain Control Seminar
In this 35-minute video seminar, Professor Majid Ali discusses seven core aspects of cancer pain: (1) control of cancer pain is self-compassion for the patient; (2) control of cancer pain is physician’s compassion for the patient; (3) a cancer cell is a fermenting, oxygen-shunning cell; (4) every pain is some cells’ cries for oxygen; (5) stress and dehydration worsen cancer pain, as they do all other types of cancer; (6) natural oxystatic and anti-inflammatory remedies must be considered as the primary approach to the problem; and (7) the use of pain killers should not be opposed if natural therapies do not give effective pain control.
Volume I: The Dysox Model of Cancer (book)
In patient advocacy, a physician’s first commitment must be to the truth, the second to hope. Sadly, I found that not to be true in oncology literature or in the writings of the so-called holistic doctors who claim to cure cancer.
I found the realities of cancer in my patients who overcame their cancers, who live with cancer, and in those who died with cancer—angry and frightened initially, often in despair later, nearly always with awe-inspiring courage close to the end.
