Professor Omura has done extensive research on the effects of chemotherapy on the heart and brain of cancer patients since he noticed many cancer patients developed memory problems and complain of heaviness in chest or mild chest pain after chemotherapy. While most ECGs do not show any significant changes by chemotherapy, he found significant biochemical changes in specific part of the rising part of the T-waves without significant visible changes in ECGs. He also developed a method to identify any infection of any part of the heart from ECG, and he is the first one to report in late 1990s that repeated Acupuncture treatment of Lyme Disease infected joint pain is one of the significant unrecognized causes of atrial flutters and atrial fibrillations by spreading of Lyme disease's Spirocheta by rupturing capillaries of Borrelia Burgdorferi infected painful joints. Recently he succeeded in developing a new method of screening cancers from
