I hope to persuade you to run Helen Nauts' Coley Toxins—The First
Century, written in 1993, one hundred years after
Dr. Coley had cured his first hopeless cancer patient with Coley Toxins in
1893. Helen Nauts was Coley's
daughter. She founded Cancer Research Institute in 1953.
In 1934 a prominent cancer surgeon from Massachusetts General Hospital, Ereest
Codman had for over 20 years been a detractor of Coley Toxins and Coley. In
1934, two years before Coley's death, he did an about-face and had words
of praise for Coley and for Coley's Toxins, saying there had been occasional
miracles but not infrequent miracles in treating cancer with Coley's
Toxins. Coley had many supporters — among them the Mayo brothers — but
his detractors were legion including his superior at Memorial Hospital, now
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital, Dr. James Ewing.
Read The First Century and you will get the
idea that when Coley's Toxins was used over a period of several months producing
a fever of 103° to
104°, the cure rate in solid malignant tumors was close to 50%.
Had Coley's Toxins been accepted and used as a standard practice in
treating cancer, there might have been a few million cancer patients who died
of cancer over the past century who would have gotten well and lived to old
age. The American Cancer Society was formed in 1913 and became an enemy of
Coley's Toxins done by intravenous infusion is by far more effective
in producing strong fever reactions and Coley knew this to be the case but
there was the idea then that nothing should be put in the vein. Also there
was the fear that an overdose could cause death. Now a rectal suppository of
Tylenol can turn off a reaction if it gets too severe.
By combining the precaution of having Tylenol on hand while doing intravenous
infusions of Coley's Toxins, it should be possible to get better results
in treating cancer than Coley and others had.
If the patient has a vein port put in, treatment with Coley's Toxins
can be done at home as self-medication, making possible vast reductions in
the cost of treatment.
In 1995 I went to Guatemala and found a bacteriologist and gave him $800 to
make 2,000cc of Coley's Toxins. About six months ago I was able to get
600cc of that vaccine and I gave it to my friend, Glen Wilcoxson, MD.
Meanwhile, I found a doctor in Guatemala who owned a small hospital. For $1,000
he would put patients up in his hospital for 30 days and give them 20 IVs of
Coley's Toxins. A woman from near Pittsburgh had called me by phone.
She had ovarian cancer with a CA 125 of 6,200. She was badly swollen and in
great distress. I do not know how she made the trip. On getting 20 IVs of Coley's
Toxins over a 30-day period, the swelling was gone and her CA 125 was reduced
to 2,100. She felt much better.
At about that time someone told the Minister of Health that the American Cancer
Society had Coley's Toxins listed as a quack cancer treatment and treatment
of cancer with Coley's Toxins was banned from use in Guatemala.
At the same time, the late Dr. Don Carrow, following my instructions, made
a lot of Coley's Toxins. He had a 50 year-old nurse who had non-Hodgkin's
lymphoma with a tumor the size of a football under one arm. Dr. Carrow injected
his Coley's Toxins into the center of the big tumor. It shrank down
to a flabby bag and was excised. That was eight years ago and last year the
patient was alive and free from cancer. Dr. Carrow then had problems with the
Dr. Wilcoxson last year had a patient with a tumor the size of a chicken egg
on his neck thought to be a metastasis from a primary in a tonsil. He did IVs
and the tumor injections. That tumor is gone now.
Dr. Wilcoxson has a new cancer patient now. The patient is a young man from
Tennessee. He has osteogenic sarcoma. He suffered amputation and has two lung
metastases. Chemotherapy did no good. He was in Dr. Wilcoxson's office
for one day only. He was very sick. He had his first IV of Coley's Toxins.
He and a nurse returned home and for 30 days the nurse has been doing IVs of
Coley's Toxins every second day. He is getting reactions of 104° F
which is very good. After 30 days he is feeling better, is eating better and
has gained 4 lbs of weight.
Meanwhile, Richard Masion, MD of Powell, Ohio had made contact with me and
had made his first lot of Coley's Toxins and tested it on himself. He
is going to give some of it to Dr. Wilcoxson for use on his sarcoma patient.
