TUESDAY, APRIL 17, 1956 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Researchers Suggest Screening Antibiotics for a Cancer Fighter By FRANK CAREY AP Science Reporter ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. (AP) — A big new hunt for possible cancer-fighting weapons among drugs of the "antibiotic" class, such as penicillin, has been suggested by a team of Boston researchers. Dr. Sidney Farber and two colleagues of the Children's Cancer Research Foundation, inc., urged such a hunt by science in making a report to the American Assn for Cancer Research, whose annual meeting ended Sunday. The Bostonlans reported recent research in which an antibiotic drug: called "actinomycin D" was found to have some Alight, though only temporary, effect against a few forms of human cancer—particularly Hodgkin's disease (a cancer of the lymph system) and "rhabdomyosarcoma," a form ol muscle cancer. Can't Be Rated They said the effect was so teni porary—and the drug itself is so potentially to?eic—that, particular antibiotic could not in its presenl form be rated as an addition to the few somewhat effective chemical weapons science now has •gainst cancer. But they added: "The interest in these observations lies in the fact that further proof has been obtained of the •nticancer characteristics of anti biotics. Mandatory "A detailed' large-scale search for tnticancer effects of all known antibiotics and the development of new antibiotics to be tested for anticaricer proberties appears to be mandatory from these observations." In the past, science has tested a large number of antibiotics for anticancer activity. A few have worked 'against cancers in test tubes and animals, but by and large their effects against human cancer have been disappointing or Inconclusive.
