During Dr Lipton's career as a surgeon, he pioneered several innovative surgical procedures, including credit as the first person to put an inferior vena caval umbrella in a human patient, to prevent the embolism of major clots into the heart and lungs. Dr Lipton has written and published several articles for major scientific and medical journals. He published his first article on tumor immunology at the age of 27 while he served as a surgical intern at Jackson Memorial Hospital, which is the basis behind ongoing research for Macrimmune.™

In 1981 Dr Lipton fulfilled his desire to extend his knowledge of tumor immunology by earning his Doctorate Degree in Pharmacology. He discovered the tumoricidal effects of macroglobulins and began designing drugs to assist the body's immune system in combatting cancer. Dr Lipton's research has resulted in patents pending on 5 major drugs and supplements. After his surgical career, Dr Lipton dedicated his life to cancer research and the fulfillment of Macrimmune™ as a cure for the devastating disease.
