West Bloomfield, MI - Dr. Josefino Tunac is a disease expert and the chairman and president of Arterez

Diseases are the bane of our existence. Throughout history diseases have been the major killer of humans.

In the Medieval period, doctors thought the Bubonic plague was created by air and fumes produced by poor sanitation. Because of the ravages of smallpox, in desperation, Benjamin Jesty, a Scottish farmer in 1774 injected (vaccinated) a pus from a cow infected with cowpox to his family and found protection from smallpox. Vaccination was later championed by Edward Jenner and credited for the eradication of smallpox.

Just like Jesty with the smallpox, Alexander Fleming serendipitously discovered the antibiotic penicillin which was introduced in 1940 as the panacea for bacterial infection. Thereafter, smallpox and bacterial plagues were under control. The next challenge for modern society is effective treatment of chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and now Alzheimer’s. More recently (2020), the government enacted “Operation Warp Speed” (OWS) and identified the spike-protein component of COVID-19 as target for diagnostics and vaccines. Dr Tunac agrees with government’s effort to fund and solve problems, but what Dr Tunac does not agree is the platform of reducing the diseases into component parts or symptoms as treatment targets and ignoring the global nature of the disease.

Alternatively, Dr Tunac addresss the global etiology of diseases as target(s) for drug treatment, which he calls “Burglar Proofing”. This involves the design of a multicomponent drug to fortify or restore the innate (physical) and immunological defense system.
