"The Cuban government has paid the first installment and has done soon", said the French Ambassador to Cuba, Jean-Marie Bruno.

The institute, one of the most important of its kind in the world, becomes the first American medical institution to receive approval from the Food and Drug Administration to test a Cuban medical therapy in that country. The clinical trial is expected to begin in November and to involve roughly 60 - 90 US patients.
