by Abram Hoffer, M.D., Ph.D

Let me tell you what I am not. I am not an oncologist, I'm not a pathologist, I'm not a GP, I am a psychiatrist. Therefore you may want to know what a psychiatrist is doing messing about with cancer. I think that'sa legitimate question so I'd like to tell you briefly how I got into this very interesting field.

"After breakfast, I visited Linus Pauling who was staying in the room next to mine. When I walked in he was busy with a hand calculator.  I told him that on the basis of my fifty patients I had concluded that he and Dr. Cameron were right, that vitamin C in large doses did improve enormously the outcome of treatment for cancer."

By Keith Mulvihill

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Scientists are hoping that an engineered molecule that homes in on brain tumor cells could one day be used to treat patients with glioblastoma, a deadly and difficult to treat form of brain cancer that accounts for about 40% of all primary brain tumors.

But before human trials can take place, the team of researchers must conduct further experiments to determine whether the drug has any harmful side effects.
