TUKSDAY, JULY 18, 1050 BLYTHEVTT.LE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS New Blood Test Nea rs 100 Per Cent Accuracy in Finding Human Cancer By ALTON U BIAKtSI.Ef, PARIS, July 18. (AP)—A new blood test has so far proved almost lut) per cent accurate in delecting cancer in humans, three Swiss physicians reported today. Jjhty told the fifth International* —— : :z^er research Congress Hie lest research based on a chemical that appears in the blood of persons with cancer. The chemical breaks down certain kind of sugar, pentose igar. The test Is made by adding blood serum from the person to a solution of the sugar. The method was described by Dr. George Menkes, Dr. p. Rentchnick »nd Dr. S. Steenmf, of Geneva. The test was tried, they said, on 200 persons with vnrious kinds of cancer, It was 95 per cent right. An improved version was employed on the second hundred. Dr. Menkes said It was almost 100 per cent accurate. On Fentos* Suear Blood from 42 of 44 healthy persons produced no reaction on the pentose sugar, while 88 per cent of 124 persons with diseases other than cancer also showed negative reactions to the test, the Swiss expert .said. Rats were given a cancer-causing chemical. The sugar-destroying chemical appeared In their blocxl fit the same time as the microscope showed cancerous changes In the rats' tissues. Hie sugar-destroy chemical seems tQ a constant and probably property of the blood .o fiier patients. Dr. Menkes concluded. Injection Technique The Congress also heard a description of a new injection technique in which hollow tubes, pushed through human , arteries, wine far as five feet through the body to deliver cannon shots drugs against cancer groivths. Dr. Michael B. Shimkin of San Francisco's National Cancer Insti lute said the tubes can carry large amounts of drugs to the site of the cancer. Twice as much of the drug is injected into the vein would be greatly diluted before tt reached the same site, he explained. Drugs were given In this way t 50 patients, all dying of cancers, In the past year, Dr. Shimkin said About half of them received tern porary help and a few obtained an extra three months of life, he add ed. The drugs used were nitrogen mustards, made from wartime poi •on gases. Tube Method Is Safe The tube method. Dr. Shimki »ald, had proven safe and may be come increasingly useful.

OP)— The parents of tiny blind Becky Haire are sweating out a long odrls gamble to save her life—and looks. Mr. and Mrs. John M. Haire decided yesterday they'd take the 35 per cent chance that X-ray and radium treatment will save the four-month-old baby's eyes. Seven eye specialists diagnosed Becky's blindness as cancer—but told. the parents that only an operation which would remove one eye could confirm the diagnosis. IT cancer was proved, specialists said, further treatment had a 60 per cent chance of saving her life. But, it meant certain disfiguration. An earlier diagnosis attributed Becky's trouble to a muscle behind the eyeball. In taking the long odds. Haire said: "It was a terrible decision to have to make. We thought harder about it than anything In the world. I3ut we can't help thinking that maybe It is a muscle and not a cancer. Becky had her first radium treatment yesterday. She'll undergo one a day for six weeks. If she begins to weaken in about four months, said Haire, "we'll •enow we made the wrong decision. 1 ' Salvation Army .oses Founder; Gen.
