Normally, the moid stopped srowing in the presence of •t-APP.—the cirujr was probably interfering with the mold's ability to manufacture nneleie acids, one of life's most vital substances. Helief of the poisonous effects was obtained from a number of chemical substances. Among- those were adenine and other nucleic acid components, as well as some compounds derived from 4-APP itself. Vitamin Bl and vitamin B6 al.«o helped offset the poisonous effects. Like many potential cancer drugs. 4-APP is toxic to the animals. The treated mice lost weight. Three or four days after the treatments started, their eyes began to bulge and some of them scratched their eyes and became blind. Many new compounds have been and will be synthesized by the Robins group in New Mexico. It is hoped that some derivatives of 4-APP' will inhibit, cancer and prove less toxic to the host. Dr. Howard E. Skipp'T of the Southern Research Instiute. Birmingham, A!a.. has reported that 4-APP slows down the growth of one form of mouse cancer and delays the death of mice with one kind of .leukemia, cancer of the blood and blood-forming tissues.
