Anti-Aging Research: Carotid Ultrasound / Intima-Media


Image result for carotid intima-media thickness




Dr. Wichman is a Board Certified Radiologist who specializes in Ultrasound.  He maintains a Philips/Atl HDI 5000 Ultrasound machine on site.  Capabilitites of this unit include: (1) Carotid Intima-Media Thickness (CIMT) evaluation; (2) Echocardiography; (3) Lower Extremity Doppler evaluation; (4) Brachial Flow-Mediated Dilation (FMD) test; (5) Tumor Mass assessment; (6) Gallbladder evaluation; (7) Ultrasound-Guided Needle placement; (8) etc.



The carotid Intima-Media Thickness Test (CIMT) is a test that measures the thickness of the two layers of the carotoid artery to determine the risk of heart disease and stroke. The carotid artery has two layers, the intima and media, and increased thickness of these membranes is an indicator of carotid atherosclerotic vascular disease.

After performing the test, a doctor can diagnose and treat potential cardiovascular issues.

We are seeking INVESTORS for an on-site, 

state-of-the-art Circulating Tumor Cell (CTC)

harvesting system to replace the "other" tests:


  • superior enumeration technology
  • faster turnaround
  • lower cost
  • in-hand "liquid biopsies"
  • PATIENT-SPECIFIC breakthroughs → targeted infusions, oncolytic viruses, dendritic vaccines


                      I N T E R E S T E D ?


  • we seek a total investment of $50,000; the minimum participation level will be $5000
  • we anticipate running ~5 CTC counts per week (~250 counts per year)
  • fixed costs are one $100 cartridge + ~$50 in labor/supplies per count = ~$150 per count
  • an extremely competitive price would be $350 per count, yielding a NET profit of ~$200 per count (~$50,000 per year)
  • therefore, we anticipate recovering the total investment in ~1 year
  • the investor pool shall receive 100% of NET profits from CTC counts until the total investment has been recovered
  • afterwards, the investor pool shall receive 25% of NET profits from CTC counts for an additional 3 years
  • of course, all CTC count results and all harvested cells shall remain the property of A.R.I.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) helps all kinds of people. It’s used to help patients suffering from sports injuries, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, infections, arthritis and a huge range of other medical conditions. As we all know, oxygen is vital for life, and life cannot exist without it. It follows that oxygen is essential for effective healing and recovery.
