STEVEN AYRE, M.D. received his Degree from the University of Ottawa Medical School in Ontario, Canada in 1971 and completed his Internship at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal, Canada. Next, he joined his father, William Burton Ayre, M.D. at the Ayre Medical Clinic located in the Town of Mount Royal, a suburb of Montreal.

Following his father’s innovative inclination towards the use of high dose Vitamin Therapy in the treament of behavioral disorders, Dr. Ayre became the Medical Director of the Montreal Association of Children With Learning Disabilities. This interest in Mega-Vitamin Therapy opened the way for his involvement in the growing field of Alternative Medical Practices.

In 1975, Dr. Ayre first became acquainted with a procedure later named Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT). At that time, he met Donato Perez Garcia M.D. of Mexico City whose father—Donato Perez Garcia, Sr. M.D.—developed the Cellular Therapy to Change the Biophysical Biochemical Constants of the Blood. The stories Dr. Ayre heard from Dr. Perez about this cancer treatment using his father’s Therapy, coupled with his own professional frustration with the suffering associated with cancer treatments, led him to embrace this unique idea and develop it scientifically. A third medical member of the family, Donato Perez Garcia, Jr. M.D., joined in working with his father and Dr. Ayre in 1983.

For the past 30 years, Dr. Ayre has dedicated his medical career to the scientific development of this innovative cancer treatment, which in 1986 he named Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT).

Dr. Ayre and his Mexican colleagues have published 5 papers in the peer reviewed medical literature on this subject and have made scientific presentations on the treatment at major national and international scientific conferences. Dr. Ayre established his office, Contemporary Medicine, in 1999 and has since treated over 200 cancer patients with IPT.

Their efforts with respect to IPT earned these doctors recognition from the National Institutes of Health, National Cancer Institute, Office of Cancer Complementary and Alternative Medicine (OCCAM). In December 2005, the Director of OCCAM, Dr. Jeffrey White, announced a Request For Proposal on Alternative Cancer Treatment. Dr. Ayre and his colleagues were invited to respond because of their dedicated involvement with IPT.

Dr. Ayre may be reached at his Clinic, Contemporary Medicine, in Burr Ridge, IL by phone at 630-321-9010. For further information, visit his website at
