chemical compound from which mus-
tard gas is prepared, may be the long
sought preventive for chemically-in-
duced cancer, according to Prof. Wer-
ner E. Bachmann of the chemistry
Professor Bachmann has been
studying and experimenting with the
chemical factors involved in cancer
for three years. He is seeking to iso-
late all the chemical compounds
which can cause cancer, so that an
agent can be found which will neu-
tralize their effect.
He pointed out that although it is
possible human cancer may not be
causedo by any chemical compound,
the results shown thus far by his workI
and by that of the Royal Cancer Hos-
pital in London justify further re-}
The cancer-producing compounds
found thus far by 'Professor Bach-
mann and his associates, and by Drs.
Cook and Kennaway, of the Royal
Cancer Hospital, are related in that
all of them are built of benzene rings.
A benzene ring is a molecule com-
posed of six carbon and six hydrogen
atoms arranged in a hexagonal pat-
It has been found that a clear solu-
tion made from a cancerous growth
will produce tumors, and this is the
basis for ProfessorHBachmann's lat-
est experiment. He has produced
soluble derivatives of the known can-
cer-producing compounds, all of
which are normally insoluble solids.
He believes that a soluble compound,
if injected into the blood stream,
may have more effect on internal
organs than the insoluble ones used
The first cancer-producing com-
pound was isolated from coal tar by
Cook, and is known as benzpyrene.
It was noticed that this compound
had a peculiar arrangement of the
benzene rings, so other compounds
with a similar arrangement were tried
on mice. One, methylcholanthrene,
5, 6-ibenzanthracene. The omly one
of these compounds which occurs out-
side the- laboratory is benzpyrene,_
formed during the production of coal
tar. All the others must be made
in the laboratory.
Professor Bachmann's associates
here include Alfred Wilds, John Che-
merda and William Struve, who are 1
working for their Ph.D. degrees, and
Dr. Milton Kloetzel, who holds the
DuPont Post-Doctorate Fellowship.
Dr. James Bradbury of the depart-
ment of obstetrics and gynecology of
the School of Medicine is conducting
the actual1application of the com-l
pounds on mice.
