Susceptibility to Cancer May Be inherited, Scientist Says "Say. if you're ont on a shopping sjiree And appreciate value and economy . , . If. for your money, you want to get most ..." The answer, ray friend- is THE TRADING POST! " By ItOKKItT <:, FIELDER ((.'llitt'd Tress Shift .C»rr<!.si>nn<lenl) I ST. LOUIS. Sept. 5. (UH) _ A Swiss scientist reported here yesterday that he has found evidence that susceptibility to cancer may he inherited. Dr. Hans R. Schinz. professor of radiology at the University of Zurich, presented his finding's iit the opening scientific session of the Fourth International Cancer Research Congress, attended by delegates Irom 4-1 nations. He said he had surveyed the famines of 102 cancer patients as far back as five generations. He examined physically, interviewed i) studied Ihe medical records of 14.000 persons, he reported. '"I found a slightly greater increase or cancer in families with a history of the disease than in families with non-cancerous di- sensss." Ur. Schinn said. "This has proved to he valid when parents, brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts had cancer, hut not for the more distant relatives, such as cousins." Another paper was presented by Dr. E. V. Con'dry, St. Louis, research director at the Barnard Free Skin and Cancer Hospital and president of the Congress. Kcscarch Cmiiiliiialioii Urged In it he underscored his suggestion that a world organization i to coordinate all cancer research be considered at this Congress by reporting on research carried out here under his direction for the I past 10 years by a score of scientists Irom many nations. They limited their study to one tjreeti of animal, to layers of skin lufif as thick as a piece of paper i and to the use of niethylcholan- threnc, a coal tar derivative, as a means of causing cnncer. Their concentration on a limiii-d problem in cooperative research em- ablcd the group to show what happened between th eiime the cancer agent was applied to the skin and the tim e Ihe malignancy developed. Dr. Co.vilry said. They found, for instance, that in the early stage the skin .showed a precancerous thickening, a decrease in its fat and metallic cont.nt and an increase in the rate of cell growth. In the resulting cancer, he reported, they found a further decrease in metallic content, smaller cells but a more rapid growth by I division, increased sensitivity tr | the cancer-causing agent and a greater gentlency of the tumor to J sprea el.
