Alternate Cancer Remedies
and a patent attorney. His theory was based on interrupting the respiratory energy chain of can- cer cells. In the late 1930s he developed a cat- echol, a natural chemical that can inhibit res- piration, and named it Cancell (also known as Entelev).
liant, innovative, and highly trained.
In the 1940s, in the midst of an influenza epi- demic, Dr. Lincoln made what he thought were important discoveries concerning the bacterial origin of certain diseases—which he later ex- tended to cancer.
By 1942, Sheridan claimed that he was hav- ing a 70% tumor response in mice.
Later, in the United States, he tried to initiate human clinical trials, but was blocked by the American Cancer Society.
In 1961, he tried to prove the value of his theo- ries to the U.S. Government. But he was told that, to do so, he must provide the evidence within five days. This was a problem since Cancell required 28 days before showing effects.
In 1982, the Food and Drug Administration assigned him an IND (Investigative New Drug) num- ber. This had the effect of permanently putting the project on indefinite “clinical hold.”
When that happened, Sheridan turned his for- mula over to Edward Sopcak, the owner of a foundry, who has since given away 20,000 bottles of Cancell.

Note to researchers: The urine factor, noted by Lawrence and Burzynski, should be analyzed for possible usefulness.
Working Summary: Lawrence was one of the first of sev- eral to use purified urine factors in the treatment of cancer.
He thought he had also found a possible cure for some forms of these diseases in bacterioph- ages. These are viruses which parasitically at- tack and destroy specific bacteria.
Lincoln eventually began treating patients with injections of these viruses, and claimed to see some remarkable results—including the re- mission of cancer.
It is intriguing how many different methods have been devised to control or eliminate cancer! This is particularly remarkable, when so many techniques rely on a single factor while ignoring the discoveries which others have used success- fully. Indeed, rarely are changes in diet or living habits required.
After isolating two particularly virulent staph viruses in 1946, Lincoln found that each virus lived only in a single type of host bacterium. So he tried an experiment: At regular 48-hour intervals, he would inject solutions containing a certain vi- rus (bacteriophage) into cancer tissue. It would seek out a specific host cell and destroy it. He decided that he could do this best by placing the virus in the nasal passage, which he called “nature’s own bacteriophage chambers.”
Dr. Lawrence was a British scientist who car- ried on medical research during World War II. In the course of his work, he discovered that there was a factor in urine which seemed to have anti- tumor activity in animals. His work has since been continued and refined by other scientists elsewhere in the world. The research of both Danopoulos and Stanislaw Burzynski will be considered later in this book.
Using this technique, he was able to obtain 95% apparent cures of sinus infections. So he ex- tended his method to a wide variety of disease conditions with, what he considered, fair success.
When it was discovered that Lincoln was suc- cessfully treating cancer, he was besieged with hun- dreds of cancer patients, which he treated for a charge of one to five dollars each. Wealthy bene- factors established a Lincoln Foundation to un- derwrite the costs of his work.

Note to researchers: Lincoln’s theory of parasitic viruses which feed on, and destroy, cancer-causing microorganisms is a fascinating one, and deserves careful laboratory research.
Working Summary: Lincoln was unique in his concept that there are viruses which eat cancer cells. But, if we enlarge the concept somewhat to include the findings of pleomorphism (dis- cussed later in this book), this could occur.
Dr. Lincoln entered medical practice in 1926, at the same time that he was engaged in physics research at Harvard. He invented a mechanical heart pump. Lincoln was obviously a careful, thoughtful researcher. Most of the discoverers of alternative methods of treating cancer were bril-
Lincoln carried on his work in the small town of Medford, outside Boston.
Rather quickly he ran into opposition from the Journal of the AMA. Soon afterward, other jour- nals would not publish reports about his work.
In 1949, he requested conferences with the Massachusetts Medical Society, but the meetings were repeatedly postponed. Without investigating the matter, the Society announced that the treat- ment was useless. As for the AMA headquarters, it told Lincoln in August 1949 that the matter was a “local one,” and it should be handled by the medi- cal society in his state.
A breakthrough of sorts came when Lincoln successfully eliminated cancer in the son of Charles
