Winter 1997-1998 Cancer Chronicles

In this Winter 1997-1998 issue of The Cancer Chronicles, we shall continue to pursue our examination of both conventional and alternative cancer treatments. The articles below represent our reflections on some of the recent developments in this field, as we see them from our perspective.


A PRODUCTIVE TRIP TO GERMANY
Ralph Moss reports on his first trip to Germany and visits to German cancer clinics.

RWM HONORED BY THE DGO
DGO is the German Oncology Society. Read how they honored Ralph Moss at their meeting.

ANTHROPOSOPHICALLY EXTENDED MEDICINE
Some of the success of alternative medicine in German-speaking lands is due to the quiet work of the followers of Rudolph Steiner. What do they stand for? And what do they offer cancer patients?

PROF. JOSEF BEUTH ON IMMUNOTHERAPY
An original paper by Prof. Josef Beuth, concerning the clinical results achieved in treating various kinds of cancer with a lectin derived from the European mistletoe plant. Although somewhat more technical than most of our articles, we thought it would be of great interest not only for its important subject matter but because of the scientific approach that Dr. Beuth and his coworkers are taking towards the evaluation of complementary cancer treatments.

SPEAKING IN TORONTO
Impressions from a speaking trip north of the (U.S.) border.

LETTER TO TIMES IN DEFENSE OF OAM
Should the Office of Alternative Medicine be abolished? A Times commentator thinks so. We rally to the defense of OAM and what it stands for.

LETTER TO MEMORIAL SLOAN-KETTERING
Is Moss working at MSKCC again? Not quite! But learn about a close encounter of the almost kind.

TOWNSEND LETTER INTERVIEWS RALPH MOSS
A candid interview gives some no-holds-barred answers.

BIG CANCER CONFERENCE COMING!
A meeting next June that you will not want to miss. This will bring together some of the leading lights from both alternative/complementary and conventional medicine.

SALICK STRIKES BIG DEAL WITH MONTEFIORE
A string of round-the-clock cancer (and AIDS) centers may spell trouble for the big cancer centers in New York. What does "MacDonalds-ization" mean for cancer patients?

THE BURTON HEARINGS
Special feature of The Cancer Chronicles on the very important Congressional hearings held in Washington, DC in February 1998 on the question of access to non-conventional treatments. How this may get NCI moving on the question of the "POMES Process."
