Welcome to ALIN FOUNDATION

Established in 1962 by Dr. Kenneth Matsumura, Alin Foundation-Corporation is
the oldest biotech concern in the world. In half a century of remarkable
achievements, Alin Foundation has developed lifesaving treatments for four
diseases - heart attack, cancer, diabetes, and liver failure - which combined
are responsible for most of the deaths in the world. Each of these
developments represents a stunning breakthrough in its field.

ALIN'S LIFESAVING DISCOVERIES

Bio-Artificial Liver

This device is designed to be used outside the body to maintain patients who aresuffering liver failure due to hepatitis, cirrhosis, or cancer. Up to two million lives could be saved by this device annually. The TIME magazine named it an Invention of the Year in 2001.

Bio-Artificial Pancreas

This device will maintain normal blood sugar levels in diabetics, regardless of what they eat or when.  For one version of this device, some components were manufactured on the NASA Space Shuttle in outer Space.  There are over 10 million insulin-dependent diabetics who can benefit from an implantable bio-artificial pancreas.

Side Effect-Free Chemotherapy - SEF (pronounced "Safe") Chemo®

The tragedy of cancer is that the treatment is worse than the disease.  A new drug eliminates the side effects of chemotherapy, while making chemo drugs more effective.  Hopeless, terminal patients are now being saved regardless of the types of cancer they have.  In a recent series in Toronto, 100% of patients, mostly hopeless stage 4s responded strongly. Compare that to less than 10% responding to conventional chemotherapy.  Eight million patients die each year, half of them without treatment.  By policy, all patients will have access to this new therapy.

HeartAlarm™Wristwatch

Warns its wearer an hour or more before a heart attack occurs.  Designed to be worn by everyone over the age of 40, this device could prevent more than one million deaths annually worldwide.

LIFEDATA™ Card

A wallet card that summarizes patients' medical histories in a format that delivers to emergency medics in the critical 30 seconds all the lifesaving information needed.  When carried by everyone, this simple card is expected to have more impact on health care than the cure for cancer.

Other Special Projects

— Other developments reported here include an ovulation monitoring device for fertility enhancement and birth control, and new approaches to treating viral infections such as cytomegalovirus and herpes.

About ALIN - promoting a kind and just world

Alin Foundation, a name coined from Artificial Liver Inc, is the oldest biotech concern in the world.  Alin Foundation-Corporation is unique in operating as both a charitable foundation and a for-profit entity.  Alin receives no government or charitable assistance.

While Alin is the world's most prolific creator of breakthrough medical treatments, Alin has a profound interest in the general welfare of peoples around the world.  Alin funds social justice programs to create a kind and just world from its medical revenues.  Alin practices affirmative action to provide economic opportunities to those denied the same in the past.  Just as Alin is making a cure for cancer a reality, Alin believes poverty can be eliminated just by providing a catalyst which uses human nature to make a cascade of events happen.  That will be a bloodless revolution when both the rich and the poor can be made happy.
