Here’s what we did:

· We searched across international databases to find scientific literature pertaining to integrative oncology.

Here's what we're working on:

· We screen and summarize relevant data (English language, human level of evidence, secondary prevention) using a PICO summary template (population, intervention, comparator, outcome) to provide an objective and detailed report in an easy to read chart.

· We sort the data via tags for tumor type, side effect and intervention to allow the data to populate into sections such as Breast cancer, Peripheral Neuropathy and Curcumin.

· We added sections for support literature & clinical pearls (donated by experienced doctors in North America) which are searchable by topics and type of document.

Here's what you get:

KNOW is a valuable resource for any clinician who wants access to integrative oncology data in a searchable form, or for individuals or groups collaborating on academic projects.


KNOW will soon offer a live-updated public interface that links cancer patients and their families to scientific evidence about natural therapies.

KNOW is currently seeking academic and philanthropic partnerships. We encourage individuals, organizations, institutions or universities to connect and potentially collaborate!

KNOW blends data summarized by physicians with support literature such as patient handouts to coordinate with standard oncology treatments. KNOW empowers cancer patients with greater access to evidence informed natural treatments.
