Welcome to Berkeley Institute International

Our international clinics are breaking through the barriers of conventional cancer care. With SEF Chemotherapy®, for the first time in history, we are putting the odds in favor of our patients.

Dr. Kenneth Matsumura of the Berkeley Institute International

Meet Dr. Matsumura

Dr. Kenneth Matsumura is a world-renowned scientist dedicated to solving some of the worlds most difficult problems. His inventions include, but are not limited to, The HeartAlarm™ wristwatch that gives it’s wearer early warning of an impending heart attack, SEF Chemo®, the bio-artificial liver that Time Magazine named Invention of the Year in 2001, and the bio-artificial pancreas that eliminates the need for daily injections.

He began his medical research at the age of 13. His first paper, on a new rapid skin-grafting technique was published in 1961, at the age of 15. And in 1962, he became the youngest person to ever receive a research grant from the American Lung Association. While his medical research and innovation are remarkable, they are matched only by his passion for social justice, equality, and philanthropic work.

Side Effect Free


With conventional chemotherapy, the side effects are often as insidious as the disease itself. But with SEF Chemotherapy, that’s no longer the case. Treatment usually takes only 20-60 minutes, and patients report being able to go back to work the same day.


Holistic Care and Support


Dr. Matsumura has always put compassionate care above all other aspects of his clinic, and fully understands the difficulties placed on patients and their families. That’s why our staff is trained in complete, holistic physical and emotional care while patients receive therapy at the Berkeley Institute.




Conventional chemotherapy decimates the white blood cell count. The stunning efficacy of our therapy is in the way it enable the body’s own immune system to aid in the fight against cancer. We offer the world’s only side effect-free immuno-chemotherapy.
