onous and dangerous. It Is not
yet known whether they will
be of value for human use.
The fact that they work a
little bit against cancer Is hope
ful. Starting with them, man
made bullets may be fashioned
which can be Injected to seek
out and kill cancers without
seriously harming the human
host.
The new chemicals were de
scribed In a series of reports by
scientific teams at the national
cancer Institute, Bethesda, Md.
The reports were made by Drs.
Jonathan L. Hartwell, Wendell
E. Detty, Joseph Leiter, M. J
Shear, Virginia Downing, Ezra
M. Greenspan, Ross C. MacCar
dle, Adrian Perrault, V. Warav
dekar, and Donald L. Vivian, all
of the chemotheraphy section.
The chemicals were turned up
In a search which so far has test
ed 1,000 different chemicals
against cancer. These belonged
to various families of chemi
cals. Out of each 100. tested,
only four or five have shown
any effect.
Three of the newer ones come
from a plant, the may apple or
mandrake root. A crude extract,
podophyllin, from this plant has
affected several kinds of can
cer transplanted Into mice. The
new trio are purified chemicals
Isolated from this crude stuff
They are at least as effective
against the mouse cancers, but
are less toxic. Each shows
slight difference.
