Dr. Nader Javadi, M.D. is a board certified Hematologist and Oncologist with more than 15 years of experience. He’s a graduate of Internal medicine residency at Cleveland Clinic and completed his fellowship in Hematology/Oncology program at St. Louis University hospital. He’s the founder and current director of Hope Health Center at Reseda, California. Dr. Javadi has been a Clinical Assistant professor at University of California – Irvine between 2004-2007. During the last 15 years he has been involved in many clinical trials in the field of oncology and been a thought leader in specific areas like prostate, liver, ovarian, colon and lung cancers. He has been the chairman of the cancer committee at Riverside Cancer Foundation between 2004-2007 (Riverside, California). Dr. Javadi has been featured as an oncology expert in many national and international TV and radio stations including NBC news and multiple Persian and Armenian TV/radio stations.
At Hope Health Center (HHC) cancer patients are treated in a completely different way compared to standard approach which is practiced elsewhere. At Hope Health Center, Dr. Javadi has created a special treatment protocol for each cancer patient called “Precision Cancer Medicine”. By using this method a specific, customized therapy is given to each individual based on his/her own tumor genetics.
The technology used is called “The Next Generation Gene Sequencing” which analyzes more than 100 cancer related genes in a tumor sample. Knowing which mutations are present in each tumor can help Dr. Javadi tailor a patient’s treatment to the unique genetic features present in his/her cancer cells. For example, a patient could be given a standard chemotherapy and expect a maximum 35 percent response rate/shrinkage of tumor. But if we know that patient has a specific mutation, he/she can be offered a targeted therapy as simple as a pill which has a 75 percent response rate and fewer side effects.
Dr. Javadi is among one of a few community oncologists in the world who’s been a pioneer in the field of “Precision Cancer Medicine”. He has designed and applied many unique customized treatment protocols for cancer patients throughout the world with responses up to 100 percent. Some of his protocols have been used in the context of clinical trials by prestigious academic centers years later. Dr. Javadi believes in multi-pathway targeted therapy which incorporates different chemotherapies along with different biologic/targeted/immune therapies to obtain the maximum response and ultimately improving patients’ survival and quality of life. He’s one of the first oncologists who has used immunotherapy in combination with chemotherapy and targeted therapy. He believes, we need to use and boost our own immunity against cancer through a protocol which uses immunotherapy as its platform.
His goal is transforming an advanced deadly disease to a chronic illness which patients can live with and not die from. “Fighting cancer is similar to a war, you don’t want to use your ground forces only, you need your air force and navy too” Dr. Javadi said on one of his interviews. “you can’t expect a good and durable response by using only one standard medication in a patient with advanced stage 4 cancer. Cancer is smarter than you and will overcome and become resistant to it. We need to use multiple medications with different mechanism of action to put the tumor into shock instantly and decrease the possibility of future resistance and indirectly improve the survival” he added.
At Hope Health Center patients are treated as one of our own family members in a warm, friendly and caring atmosphere. The staff at Hope Health Center are highly trained professionals who are dedicated to cancer patients with years of experience.
