PACT 1*M BIATHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, APRIL M, 19M Poison Gas Materials Used to Fight Cancer rruk Carer < Trr** Seterice Reporter WASHINGTON, April 29. (IP)— A •ew and apparently more effective method was announced today of using the "nitrogen mustards"— one-lime poison materials—against human cancer. "Remarkable" shrinkage of treated tumors and complete relief of p»!n In. ten hopelessly advanced easee were described by the Am- nrican cancer society. All Responded ' Bevtn of the ten have died but all responded to some extent to treatment. Th shrinkage occurred, however, only In tumors directly treated. Related, but non-treated growth, were not deminlshed. The new method enables doctors to'. concentrate virtually the full wallop of the nitrogen mustards •gainst certain tumors. ' Up to now, such chemicals have been injected into the veins of patients. Used that way, they have had only limited usefulness, being spread throughout the whole body, with diluted effect. Fed Into Arteries Under the new method, they are Injected not into the veins but Into arteries directly feeding specific, cancer areas. Thus used, they have shown a" ability In preliminary trials to affect types of cancer unresponsive to other technique. •. The scientists have launched a search for some other chemical which might make the new tech- nique'even more effective. : The "encouraging" results In ten hopeless malignancies of the brhln, mouth, nose, neck and leg were reported ; by researchers of George Washington University's depart- Bient of. surgery. They warned that severe reactions —including convulsions—c a n accompany the treatment, adding that Injudicious use might produce [he death of. all normal tissue within a treated area. Very small doses are used. Vision Restored .The -American Cancer Society, which supported the research and made public the report, said that one r patient's brain tumor, "had •o impaired his,vision that he was able to distinquish only light from dark. After treatment he was able ,to • read large news print." Both 'institutions emphasized the technique is still experimental and for the present will be tried only in cues beyond help by other methods. : , ' . ' : ' % They cautioned further that in Its present- stage of development, at least, the method does not constitute * chemical cure for cancer in Uhe ; same way that surgery, . radium or x-ray can sometimes cure the disease.,.
