Instead, it has a "Y" chemical, plus three other chemicals not present 111 healthy skm. The "X' and "Y" turned up in studies to learn possible chemical differences between cancer and healthy tissue. This work is being carried on by Dr. Christopher Carrutheis and Valentina Suntzeff, research associates in cancer at the Washington University medical school. Dr. Gus Dorough, assistant professor of chemistrj, ls cq-oper-ating in the study FOUND IN SKIN The "X" is found in the epidermis, or thin outer layer of the skin of rats, mice and men It skin cancer develops n these species, the "X" g Whethei it is changed int. not yet known. "Y' is i The learn the i of "X", from t is manufactured i its relation to "Y" and possible in skin cancer formation. The fact that normal skm tains "X", while cancerous skm tains nicotinamide plus three o chemicals, looks at first to t prime key to chemical differe NOT THAT SIMPLE But it's not that simple. For healthy muscle also is found to contain the "Y" but no "X", C.-" -ious muscle has the same components as skin cancer, namely "Y" plus the other three compounds. But healthy liver also has these same chemicals just as does cancer of the skm, muscle and liver. Cancer of the liver and healthy liver are not exactly-alike chemically. Cancerous liver has much less of a chemical regulator, known as coenzyme one. It also appaiently contains some compound. "Z," not found in healthy liver. Normal skin, liver, muscle and other healthy tissues all contain co-enzyme one. But cancers of the skm, muscle, liver and nf several other tissues usually have much le-s of tnis coenzyme, jilus the strange "Z" "Z," or enzymes that produce it. may possibly be the kev. But there's a rub to this, too, in seeking any simple answer. For a healthy spleen contains lots of "Z," and the spleen rarely develops cancer, spontaneously or experimentally.
