  • Social Science Series #2: Psychological well-being of women with breast cancer

    Breast cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the breast; the cancer forms in either the lobules or the ducts of the breast. Lobules are the glands that produce milk and ducts are the pathways that bring the milk from the glands to the nipple. Cancer can also occur in the fatty tissue or the fibrous connective tissue within the breast.
  • Social Science Series #1: Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO)

    NGOs are “legal or social entities created for the purpose of producing goods and services whose status does not permit them to be a source of income, profit or other financial gain for the units that establish, control or finance them” (System of National Accounts in 1993)...
  • Science Series #12: COVID-19 Vaccines

    COVID-19 vaccines allow the immune system to develop antibodies against the virus prior to coming in contact with the illness. Vaccination exposes the body to infectious foreign antigens, which are the spike proteins of the SARS-CoV-2 that lead to the onset of antibody production and immune system activation.
  • Science Series #11: COVID-19 and Cancer

    The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the entire world in a drastic way, leading to over 3 million deaths and 132 million confirmed cases of infection. Unfortunately, some individuals, such as cancer patients, are more susceptible to catching the virus than others and are at a higher risk of severe infection...
  • Science Series #10: Clinical Trials

    Clinical trials are types of interventional research studies, conducted in order to test new emerging or already approved treatments to evaluate their effects on health outcomes...
  • Science Series #9: Cancer Vaccines

    Cancer vaccines are a form of immunotherapy that can help educate the immune system about what cancer cells “look like” so that it can recognize and eliminate them...
  • Science Series #8: Leprosy

    Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is a chronic infection caused by bacteria called Mycobacterium leprae. This bacteria multiplies very slowly and the incubation period can take a number of years...
  • End of year bulletin: Our journey 2020

    We are pleased to share with you a brief review of our efforts and achievements during this complex year for the entire world.
  • Science Series #7: Breast Cancer

    Breast cancer is a group of diseases in which cells in breast tissue change and divide uncontrollably, typically resulting in a lump or mass. Breast cancer can begin in different areas of the breast, such as the ducts, lobules, and the tissue in between.
  • Science Series #6: Leishmaniasis

    Leishmaniasis is a parasitic disease that is found in parts of the tropics, subtropics, and southern Europe. It is caused by infection with Leishmania parasites, which are spread by the bite of infected sand flies...
  • Science Series #5: Solid Tumor

    Solid tumors are an abnormal mass of tissue that usually does not contain cysts or liquid areas. These may be benign (not cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Different types of solid tumors are named for the type of cells that form them. Examples of solid tumors are sarcomas, carcinomas, and lymphomas.
  • Science Series #4: HIV

    The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome or AIDS if not treated. Unlike some other viruses, the human body can’t get rid of HIV completely, even with treatment. So once you get HIV, you have it for life...
  • Science Series #3: Leukemia

    Leukemia is a cancer of the early blood-forming cells; most often, it is of the white blood cells, but in some cases it starts in other blood cell types. There are several types of leukemia...
  • Interview with doctor Kerdel-Vegas

    Our team had the exceptional opportunity to interview doctor Francisco Kerdel-Vegas, a renowned dermatologist, researcher, diplomat and professor born in Venezuela, currently residing in Spain. Worked with doctor Convit for more than 25 years on infectious diseases.
  • End of year bulletin: Our journey in 2019

    We are pleased to end this new year of efforts and achievements by sharing with you a brief review of our journey during the year.
  • Science Series #2: Molecular Diagnostics​

    In 1990, the Human Genome Project (HGP) began with the primary goal of identifying the 20,000-25,000 genes in human DNA. Although this effort ended in 2003, it is still widely regarded in the scientific community as a monumental feat of coordination and discovery. The resulting information from this 13 year effort has provided a conceptual and technological foundation for a shift in medicine in the near future. Although the project has ended, the challenge of harnessing and applying the information still continues today.
  • New Study on Breast Cancer

    Jacinto Convit World Organization (JCWO) is pleased to announce the publication of their latest work “Evaluation of a ConvitVax/anti-PD-1 combined immunotherapy for breast cancer treatment” in Oncotarget.
  • Science Series #1: Immunotherapy

    Out of the five cancer immunotherapy types listed above, JCWO’s research and development is in the domain of cancer vaccines. This work in immunotherapy began decades ago when Dr. Jacinto Convit successfully developed and applied therapeutic vaccines for Leprosy and Cutaneous Leishmaniasis, the latter being widely used in Venezuela and other Latin-American countries.
