The International Online Journal of Cancer & Therapeutics is a peer-reviewed open acess journal that publishes original research articles as well as review articles in all areas of Oncology. this practical journal also includes information on new products, new therapies and patient management, as well as reviews of the latest research. Cancer is a complex problem. The international effort to understand and control it involves clinicians trained in many branches of medicine and scientists from most biological disciplines, chemistry, pharmaceutical and physical sciences The International Online Journal of Cancer & Therapeutics exists to serve the needs of this diverse community, providing a forum for prompt communication of original and innovative research findings that have relevance to understanding the etiology of cancer and to improving the treatment and survival of patients.

The journal publishes important original studies, reviews, and perspectives within the major topic areas of biology of premalignancy, risk factors and risk assessment, early detection research, immunoprevention, and chemopreventive and other interventions, including the basic science behind them. This journal comprises preclinical, clinical and translational research, with special attention given to molecular discoveries and an emphasis on building a translational bridge between the basic and clinical sciences. Main focuses of interest include: systemic anticancer therapy (with specific interest on molecular targeted agents and new immune therapies), randomized trials (including negatives ones), top-level guidelines, and new fields currently emerging as key components of personalized medicine, such as molecular pathology, bioinformatics, modern statistics, and biotechnologies. Radiotherapy, surgery and pediatrics manuscripts can be considered if they display a clear interaction with one of the fields above or are paradigm-shifting.

Oncology is the diagnosis and treatment of cancers,including breast,prostate,colon,lung and ovarian cancers as well as brain tumors,leukemia,lymphoma and many other types of cancer.. A doctor who works in the field of oncology is called an oncologist. The primary regions of oncology are radiation, which is worried with radiation treatment, or radiotherapy; surgical, which is contained specialists who spend significant time in tumor evacuation; therapeutic, which manages disease drugs, including chemotherapy; and interventional, which includes interventional radiologists who have some expertise in insignificantly obtrusive picture guided tumor treatment.

He has served as consultant for several companies where he has been responsible for designing formulations of nutritional supplements and pharmaceutical products. He has also been a consultant for The Center for the Improvement of Human Functioning (now Riordan Clinic), in Wichita, Kansas. He has obtained several research awards for his work on Nutrition and Cancer. He is currently Director of RECNAC II project, and Research Director of the InBioMed Project Initiative. Dr. Gonzalez also serves as a nutrition consultant to the Puerto Rican Basketball National Team and is part of the Medical Commission of the Puerto Rican Basketball Federation. He was part of the Medical Staff of the Vaqueros de Bayamon professional basketball team. He is in a part time clinical practice with Dr. Miguel J Berdiel in Ponce, PR. In December 2013,Dr. Gonzalez was exalted as Distinguished Ponceño in Medicine.  In 2015 he was selected as member to the prestigious Puerto Rican Academy of Arts and Sciences and to the Iberoamerican Academy of Culture and Sciences. Dr. Gonzalez was inducted to the International Hall of fame of Orthomolecular Medicine April, 2016. He is one of the first latino and Puerto Rican to be inducted to the International Hall of fame of Orthomolecular Medicine.

  Doctor González is one of the founders of InBioMed, leaders in the development of non-toxic chemotherapy treatments for cancer. The findings of their work with Intravenous Vitamin C as an anti-cancer agent, published in 2002, were confirmed by the NIH in 2005. They published the first Phase-I clinical study utilizing Intravenous Vitamin C for treatment of terminal cancer patients in 2005, and also published in 2005 the most comprehensive review on Vitamin C and Cancer, as a follow-up on the work of two times Nobel Laureate, Dr. Linus C. Pauling and Dr. Hugh D. Riordan. He has brought many new concepts into the scientific field, such as the Bioenergetic theory of carcinogenesis, the systemic saturation phenomenon of intravenous vitamin C, the metabolic correction concept for disease treatment and prevention. Books: Doctors Gonzalez, Miranda-Massari and Saul’s book “I Have Cancer What Should I do: The Orthomolecular Guide to Cancer Management” provides evidence based recommendations for an integrative approach for those dealing with cancer and seeking to improve quality of life and survival.  In 2014 they published the book” New Insights Vitamin C and Cancer” for Springer-Larger. Dr. Gonzalez is actually finishing a book on Metabolic Correction and Diabetes and writing a chapter on metabolic correction and disease for a Functional medicine textbook.
