Eieht .y Evening, July 10, 1957. of Circumstances Set Off Krebiozen Controversy "2 a By DELOS SMITH 1 plTh/d Press Science Editor £., gbt 1957 By United Press) ciatj' YORK (UP)—What hap- T1 in the Drake Hotel in Chi- dau ,n March 26, 1951, is utterly r r ^evaWe—yet it happened, of )n that day until this one, Aulas been anything but the the man ot science, An- of i ; - iv y< and for l ' ie wnole of j e a,^ed cancer research. -I j'\at day at the Drake, Dr. "Wf'Ad a private meeting to Lor he invited scientific col- Y s, some wealthy laymen n/fVere benefactors of science, ^..ffice-hoWing politicians. The t-j'ir-old scientist wanted to tell ". _ privately — about what t he had found out concern- the commercial rights. Somehow Ivy's meeting and this other meeting got merged. All was confusion which resolved into fiasco. The net result was that news went out from Chicago that day that the famous Dr. Ivy had found a CURE for cancer. That word, "cure," in relation to cancer, does to anyone who knows anything about cancer, what a red flag does to a bull. You may well be killing, a man if you tell him there is an easy "cure" for his cancer and divert him from the tried treatments which might save him.

Another Meeting field) In the same hotel at the same Cancer 'patieiAs and their rala- tives and doctors were roused to veritable frenzy — they thought the "cure" news was backed by the eminent Dr. Ivy. There is no [question that the medical and atmosphere had been quite rare. But less rarely, can cers will grow for a while and then stand still for periods ranging from sionths to many years. Ivy had always maintained that the answer to cancer, if it were ever found, would be found in the natural chemical defenses when they were discovered and understood. Believing that, Durovic's thesis chemistry o£ the horse had produced for protective purposes. Fortune From Publicity But the facts 'which stood out after 1 the "cure" publicity, was that Ivy's investigative methods had been unorthodox (as they had been .frequently in the past), and two persons— the Duro- vics— owned both the only existing supply of the substance and the secret of how to make it and so stood to make a fortune from the publicity. The council of pharmacy and chemistry of the American Medical Assn. moved into answer the prime question: Was .Krebiozen active against cancer? Dr. Paul L. Wermer, tl/en secretary of the council's committee on research assembled the -records of 100 cancer patients who . had received Krebiozen from seven cancer specialist. specialists reported that Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Seven Star City Mr, and Mrs. Glen Bajizer and daughter of Merriville and Mr, and Mrs. C.
