A New and Successful Treatment for Cancer
            (Koch, 1919) Download
Statistics show that there are over 200,000 cases of cancer in this country alone. The mortality is one out of eight for females, and one out of twelve for males, in spite of the great advances in diagnosis, surgery, and in the use of X-ray and Radium. It is hardly to be wondered at that the successful treatment of this disease should be sought in some other field of endeavor, as chemistry, for instance. I am glad to be able to announce that such a search has not been barren, and that indeed a number of inoperable cancer cases have already been clinically cured through a bio-chemical treatment with which a fair portion of the Detroit Profession is now familiar. It is the purpose of this paper to explain briefly the history and principle of this treatment in order to engage interest and co-operation in this very necessary work.

A New and Successful Treatment for Cancer
         (Koch, 1920) Download
It is the purpose of this paper to present certain physiological deductions which locate the essential pathology of cancer, and to describe a treatment that simply corrects the pathological condition on a physiological basis, and thus establishes cure. A few histories and microphotographs are selected to illustrate the various phases of the treatment.
