A chemotherapy expert read .\ scientific paper which detailed th-- ceil changes when podophyllin was used to destroy venereal warts. The expert began to wonder how podopnyllin would effect malignant or cancerous cells. He determined a likely dose ot podophyllin lo be used on 30 white mice which had been artificially implanted with a common type of cancer. Half of the mice were given one podophyilin injection each. Tiie other half were given nothing Th» podophyllln-treated mice were killed, in.groups of five at Intervals ol 12. 24 and « hours after the injections. The non-Injected mice also were killed. Detailed laboratory examination showed some destruction of the cancerous cells of the mice which wer- given podophyllin. This was enough to spur the experts to study podophyllln further.
