Changes Diseased Cells New Cancer Fighting Agent Extracted .ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- A chemical with the power lo change cancer cells back (o normal cells has been extracted from human urine and may explain why some cases of cancer cure themselves, a Baylor University researcher says. If the naturally occurring substance can be made artificially, Dr, S.R. Burjynski said Wednesday, it could be valuable in cancer therapy because 'It does not seem to affect normal cells.- But the work Is in its early stages and has not even been tested in animals, he said. The abnormal, out-of-conlrol growth of cancer cells is believed to be the result of an "error" in their genetic mechanism that controls development. The substance which Enr- zynski calls, antineoplaston parcntly delects cells that are gcting out of line' and feeds them new information that re' turns them to normal. The sub' stance is so named because it works ngainst neoplasms, or abnormal growths. The study carried out by Burzinski and associates at Baylor, the M.D. Anderson Hospital find Tumor Institute and New York Medical College was reported to the Federation of American - Societies for Experimental Biology. Burzynski said he studied 180 cases in which cancer disappeared for no apparent reason. This happens only in about one in 80,000 cases, he said, "or about four patients in the United States each year," The spontaneous regression m u s t - have been due to the same mechanism that routinely corrects genetic errors in the body, theorized Rurzynski. Cancer-causing forces are continuously triggering abnormal cell growth and would soon kill a person were it not for such a correction system. Burzynski actually found three kinds of anlincoplaslons which he said arc probably formeri in body tissucs and pass into the blood and urine. Tho research team extracted a few micrograms of the sub' stance from more than 100 quarts of urine. When the an' lineoplastons were mixed with Iniman cancer cells grown in the laboratory, \hey halted Lhc cancerous development by up lo 97 per cent, Burzynski said They had almost no effect on normal cells, The cancer cells that the substances were effective against included those of leukemia, os- tcoficnic, sarcoma (a type of bone cancer) and cervical cancer, he said.
