WASHINGTON CAP) - The ftikker of Krebiozeii has been officially notified by the government that Interstate delivery of the Controversial cancer drug is flow illegal. Bolsieuillet Jones, special assistant for health and medical affairs to the secretary of health, education and welfare, wrote the notification Wednesday In a letter to Dr. Stevan Durovic, Chicago. The letter noted that Dr. Duro- Vlc had requested a clinical test of the drug and added that he had not cooperated in the invest i- gatlon preceding such a tost. Tile doctor has said that he and his colleagues have furnished all necessary information. Backers of Krebiozen say it lias been beneficial in the treatment of cancer. This has been disclaimed by the American Medical Association. Jones wrote the doctor that the department's knowledge of the composition and method of manufacture of the drug was incomplete because of what J o n e termed Dr. Durovic's failure t cooperate. "The limited information ob tained by our representatives however," Jones wrote, "ind cates such lack of normal precau tions in the initial stage of manu facture that we would not be war ranted in administering a produc so manufactured to patients fo whose care the Public Healt Service is responsible." A suit to stop what he callec harassment by the Food am Drug Administration in its invest! gation of the drug has been filec by Dr. Durovic in Chicago. "We flatly reject your accusa tions of abuse, harassment anc broken agreement," Jones wrote him. Jones wrote that Dr. Durovic had refused to meet the reason able and necessary conditions for a clinical test and "These condi tions have been made known to you repeatedly." Krebiozen had been distributed under an experimental status. Backers had filed a plan for distribution, required by June 7 un der a new drugs law, but last weekend Dr. Durovic withdrew his plan. The withdrawal automatically made illegal the continued interstate distribution of the drug, Jones said. Sen. Paul H. Douglas, D-Ilt.. was reported by an aide to be drafting legislation urging interstate distribution be continued "at least to patients who beliew their lives depend on it" until a fair test of the drug has be<?n completed by the National Insti- tues of Health.
