By Herbert Bailey

The background of a Tragedy

A genuine booklet a few melanoma healing that was once and is hidden from the world.

you are going to learn Herbert Bailey's ebook, an issue of lifestyles or demise, The !ncredible tale of Krebiozen, (published via G. P. Putnam's Sons, 210 Madison street, ny, N.Y., $4.95) with definitely feelings, indignation and outrage. in case you have be aware of somebody who suffered with melanoma you will definitely develop into sour as you learn of a therapy for this ailment whose unlock, Mr. Bailey says, has been thwarted and suppressed via the yank clinical organization due to the fact that 1951.

The tale begun with the experiments of Dr. Stevan Durovic, a former assistant professor on the collage of Belgrade. He got here to the us after numerous years of experimentation in South the United States, with a drug which he had chanced on and which he believed to be a remedy for melanoma. as soon as within the usa he was once delivered to the eye of Dr. Andrew C. Ivy, a scientific researcher of unassailable attractiveness and big stature in his career. Dr. Ivy was once, on the time, vice chairman of the collage of Illinois, and head of its large scientific college. His efforts in melanoma study had resulted in his appointment as government Director of the nationwide Advisory melanoma Council and he used to be additionally a director of the yank melanoma Society. a massive, a revered, an commemorated man.

Early effects convey Promise

Dr. Ivy got interested within the thought and chances proven in Dr. Durovic's substance, Krebiozen, and he made up our minds to check it within the clinical demeanour his event had taught him used to be important for a correct photo of the drug's strength. From the very starting the implications have been staggering of their positiveness. although Krebiozen used to be used merely on individuals who were clinically determined as hopeless and shut to dying, its notable features confirmed themselves nearly right away. there has been a lessening or entire disappearance of ache, and in lots of instances tumors have been dissolved and changed with fit tissue. Physicians who have been making an attempt all of it over the rustic said like effects. it all started to appear as if technological know-how had ultimately get a hold of a weapon opposed to melanoma that had an opportunity to win the fight.

With this kind of product as a melanoma remedy, medical and humanitarian issues are joined through a 3rd consideration-commercialism. definitely, a melanoma therapy is worthy some huge cash. What sufferer wouldn't supply all he owns, or all he can borrow for even an opportunity that he should be cured? huge drug businesses have made hundreds of thousands on ingredients designed to regard illnesses a ways much less pressing and vast unfold than melanoma. This then is why Chicago businessmen attempted to get regulate of the distribution rights to Krebiozen. after they have been refused, they threatened to wreck Krebiozen and everybody attached with it. one of many males who made this danger used to be the good friend of J. J. Moore, then treasurer of the yankee scientific Association.

The promise proven within the early exams of Krebiozen appeared to be emphasised with each one new test. the buzz and reduction supplied by way of such obvious luck left little room for fear over the probability that have been made. How may possibly so proud and safe a enterprise as a scientifically confirmed melanoma healing be scuttled through the impact of business interests?

Dr. Ivy will pay the Price

The solution to that question got here with devastating swiftness. In quick succession Dr. Ivy was once suspended from club within the Chicago scientific Society, faraway from the vice presidency of the college of Illinois, and had his resignation authorized by way of either nationwide melanoma societies famous above. yet worst of all, his paintings with Krebiozen used to be assailed as misguided and unscientific. His conclusions have been brushed aside or so interpreted as to discredit his examine tools, equipment which were more than enough to earn him a global attractiveness, tools which until then have been considered as the last word in clinical detachment and objectivity. unexpectedly the strategy used to be incorrect, the conclusions unfaithful, the impact used to be fostered that Dr. Ivy was once not able to trustworthy clinical remark. It was once even instructed that Dr. Ivy had turn into senile and was once unswerving to Krebiozen simply simply because his brain was once failing.

How Krebiozen Fared

The destiny of Krebiozen itself used to be comparable. inside of a number of brief months after Dr. Ivy made identified a few observations on 26 sufferers whose background confirmed Krebiozen to be of "promise," the magazine of the Amer:ican scientific organization released a standing document on Krebiozen. It handled a hundred case histories, a undertaking which most sensible scientists could have trouble in finishing effectively in years, no longer six weeks, even operating at best velocity! The document used to be tremendous destructive, and the mood of the typical observer after studying it truly is mirrored in a Chicago Tribune editorial which stated, "Medically conversing, Krebiozen is useless. enable or not it's buried with no ceremony." those humans, between them hundreds of thousands of medical professionals who depend upon the magazine of the yank scientific organization for all in their present clinical info, by no means knew that the center of the document used to be faked. Mr. Bailey exhibits that the health care professional who wrote the object made such a lot of omissions of authentic and favorable effects and so altered the findings that have been at his disposal that even the main naive researcher could have discredited his conclusions without delay ---as completely utiscientific and valueless. those and different evidence exhibiting that the AMA acted in a biased and arbitrary style pertaining to Krebiozen have been sworn to lower than oath at a next research of the complete state of affairs via the Illinois nation Legislature. yet nonetheless the smudges at the recognition of Krebiozen couldn't be erased. whilst an individual strong adequate to impact a metamorphosis took an interest, he may touch a physician, possibly a melanoma professional, who had noticeable and believed the A.M.A. file, and the physician may well in basic terms say he'd visible a document proving Krebiozen valueless. How may perhaps the medical professional bear in mind that the object, now not Krebiozen, used to be a fraud? How may perhaps he comprehend that 5 sufferers tested by way of the writer of the record (but intentionally passed over from it) have been loose from any detectable melanoma after five years, as a result of therapy with Krebiozen?

Bailey Names Names

The intrigue desirous about this tale is of melodramatic proportions. There are monitored mobilephone calls, South American undercover brokers, falsified clinical experiences, threats of deportation and proposals of effect through the Vatican. the tale is all written out, and each note is documented by way of Mr. Bailey. The villains are painted with simple task and certainly pointed out. No innuendo or veiled references are hired to guard the writer from attainable libel or slander, but regardless of Mr. Bailey's invites, no unmarried motion of this type has ever been instituted. to demonstrate: a reporter at the employees of the hot York submit, after analyzing the indictment contained in Mr. Bailey's first ebook at the topic: K-Krebiozen-Key to Cancer?, referred to as the A.M.A. for particular solutions to precise questions, comparable to, "Does J. J. Moore deny that he shaped a conspiracy to achieve keep an eye on of Krebiwen?" or, "Does the A.M.A. deny that its legit record opposed to Krebiozen used to be falsified?" and was once met with this inventory solution: "The A.M.A. won't resolution particular questions referring to Krebiozen." The reporter's s remark: ''. . . it sounds just like the

A.M.A. is pleading the 5th Amendment."

A booklet Is Buried

Tile adverse perspective of the A.M.A. towards Krebiozen confirmed itself within the destiny of Mr. Bailey's first e-book at the topic. the recent York instances authorised one commercial for the booklet, then refused next advertisements at the thoughts of its scientific advisors. a positive assessment of the publication used to be written through a similar paper's technological know-how editor, however it by no means seemed in print. An unlucky assessment undefined. the hot York Public Library, one of many world's greatest, saved the booklet off its cabinets until eventually approximately a 12 months after its booklet, as a result of its "controversial" content material. To underline the precariousness of being hooked up with one of these publication, the documents will convey that the publishers of K-Krebiozen-Key to melanoma have been into chapter 11 inside of a 12 months of publishing it.

Dr. Ivy used to be having related difficulties in publishing a monograph during which he said on 687 sufferers over a six yr interval who were handled with Krebiozen. The paintings confirmed observable merits in 70% of the circumstances, and without delay objectively useful leads to 50% of the situations. Dr. Ivy despatched a piece of writing in keeping with this monograph to 1 scientific magazine after another---remember this was once information on an efficient remedy for cancer!-only to have it back with apologies and excuses for no longer having the ability to submit it. The monograph used to be ultimately released through a small common writer, Henry Regnery, Chicago. rather than headlines and pleasure over the confirmed declare that Krebiozen had destroyed melanoma cells in half the sufferers handled with it, the monograph used to be greeted with apathy and indifference. the yank melanoma Society formally introduced that it can stand by way of the A.M.A. verdict of 1951 within the topic, as did others whose opinion can have helped foster curiosity or basic acceptance.

Misrepresentations Detailed

The tales of Krebiozen's struggle for recognition opposed to organised drugs are catalogued in a question of existence or demise as much as l957. they're too a number of for even a quick point out of them all right here, but the information of a correspondence among 3 Sloan-Kettering melanoma experts and a Mrs Dorothea Seeber on behalf of a pal within the final phases of melanoma are typical--- Mrs. Seeber wrote a letter asking Sloan-Kettering medical professionals their opinion of Krebiosen and even if it'd be a good option to exploit it on a "hopeless case." One physician, whose signature is outlined together with his letter, as are the others, solutions that "We attempted it (Krebiosen) on a hundred sufferers and that i remorse to claim that shall we no longer substantiate any of the claims ascribed to its use. one other solution stated, "I have had just a couple of sufferers who've been attempted on Krebiozen, and there has been no development of their condition." a 3rd wrote: "A huge volume of labor has been performed in this drug and we stumbled on it's completely worthless." a sworn statement via Dr Ivy is outlined within the comparable bankruptcy within which he swears that those 3 medical professionals by no means requested for nor obtained any Krebiozen to be used on melanoma sufferers and will now not, as a result, have come to any firsthand findings bearing on it. until eventually 1956, the date of the affidavit, no longer a unmarried ampule of Krebiosen had ever been despatched to the Sloan-Kettering Institute!

As this booklet was once written, Dr Ivy was once making each important attempt to get the A.M.A. to run a blind test on Krebiozen, the sort during which neither the health care professional nor the sufferer knows even if the injection he supplies includes the substance being demonstrated. The scan will be manage by way of AMA specialists; thev may decide upon the medical professionals and the sufferers, and the consequences will be released for the entire international to work out if Krebiozen is a miracle or a fraud. As but the AMA refuses to have any a part of such an aim try. Why?

The final bankruptcy of the heroic Krebiosen tale is but to be written. whilst it really is, it is going to be a humiliating admission to the yankee people who the main powerfull scientific authority on this planet observed healthy to deprive of a formal research a promising, now-proven, non-toxic healing for melanoma, as a result of own reasons of 1 of its maximum officers. it is going to additionally inform the wonderful tale of selfless males who sacrificed everything-money, safety, place and reputation-in the try and get Krebiozen to people who desire it. those and different heroes and villains might be delivered to gentle. while this tale is advised brazenly, and to the realm, the indignation and scorn that may be heaped upon these rsponsible for containing again Krebiozen defies the imagination.

X-ray the liver when it was so invaded? The amount of dosage you would have to give would probably make her die quicker than she would anyway .... So Dr. Pick took his wife home to die. By a thousand signs which a doctor knows, he knew she would not live more than a few days at most. She had not eaten in fourteen days. Weak tea and water were all she was able to keep down. Nothing else. Even before then, her appetite had dwindled to practically nothing, until it was a wonder that she had lasted so long without food.

The dosage later was found to depend entirely on the patient, the type of cancer, and how far advanced or metastasized it was. Eventually, it was learned that some patients required fifteen times the average dose before they would respond favorably. However, this knowledge was to come later, months later. And it was to be Dr. Pick's charming wife who was one of the major teachers of this knowledge. She had received only one ampule every three weeks. After a few weeks she became ill again, though she was still without pain.
