"Breast cancer is the most common indication for chemotherapy among women in the United States, and chemotherapy drugs are the leading cause of serious drug-related adverse effects among women with breast cancer." - Michael J. Hassett, A. James O'Malley, Juliana R. Pakes, Joseph P. Newhouse, and Craig C. Earle

1885 Paul Ehrlich, a German physician and scientist working in the fields of hematology, immunology, and antimicrobial chemotherapy develops the first chemical to target a specific pathogen.

Ehrlich developed the precursor technique to Gram staining bacteria making it possible to distinguish between different types of blood cells leading to the capability of diagnosing numerous blood diseases.

His laboratory discovered arsphenamine (Salvarsan), the first effective medicinal treatment for syphilis, thereby initiating and also naming the concept of chemotherapy.

Paul Ehrlich popularizes the concept of 'a magic bullet'.

Ehrlich reasoned that if a compound could be made that selectively targeted a disease-causing organism, then a toxin - a "magic bullet" - for that organism could be selectivity delivered.

Ehrlich elaborated the systematic testing of chemical compounds as now practiced in the pharmaceutical industry in clinical trials.

Ehrlich's work illuminated the existence of the blood-brain barrier.

1942 Two pharmacologists from the Yale School of Medicine, Louis S. Goodman and Alfred Gilman, are recruited by the DoD to create a less volatile mustard gas.

They exchanged a nitrogen molecule for sulfur creating a more stable compound in nitrogen mustard.

1943 A German air raid in Bari, Italy leads to the exposure of more than a thousand people to a secret cargo of mustard gas bombs on the SS John Harvey.

Autopsies of the victims suggest that profound lymphoid and myeloid suppression occurred after exposure.

Dr. Stewart Francis Alexander theorizes that since mustard gas all but ceased the division of certain types of somatic cells whose nature was to divide fast, it could also potentially be put to use in helping to suppress the division of certain types of cancerous cells.

The British and US governments cover up the presence of mustard gas and its effects on victims of the raid.

"Many oncologists take it for granted that response to therapy prolongs survival, an opinion which is based on a fallacy and which is not supported by clinical studies." - Ulrich Abel

carmustine, cisplatin, cytarabine

Carmustine is a mustard gas-related compound;

Carmustine, also called BCNU (1,3[bis]-2-chloroethyl-nitrosourea), decomposes spontaneously into a chloroethyl hydroxide that can alkylate the DNA and into an isocyanide molecule, which may produce carbamylation of proteins. Cytotoxicity is caused by DNA cross-links.
Cisplatin is a platinum-based compound;

Cisplatin, mode of action has been linked to its ability to crosslink with the purine bases on the DNA; interfering with DNA repair mechanisms, causing DNA damage, and subsequently inducing apoptosis in cancer cells.

Cytarabine is an antimetabolite antineoplastic agent that inhibits the synthesis of DNA with immunosuppressant properties.

Cytarabine is metabolized intracellularly into its active triphosphate form (cytosine arabinoside triphosphate). Cytosine arabinoside interferes with the synthesis of DNA. Its mode of action is due to its rapid conversion into cytosine arabinoside triphosphate, which damages DNA when the cell cycle holds in the S phase (synthesis of DNA). Rapidly dividing cells, which require DNA replication for mitosis, are therefore most affected. Cytosine arabinoside also inhibits both DNA and RNA polymerases and nucleotide reductase enzymes needed for DNA synthesis.

Hodgkin Lymphoma Treatment Regimens

Cancer therapy selection, dosing, administration, and the management of related adverse events can be a complex process that should be handled by an experienced health care team. Clinicians must choose and verify treatment options based on the individual patient; drug dose modifications and supportive care interventions should be administered accordingly. The cancer treatment regimens below may include both U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved and unapproved indications/regimens. These regimens are provided only to supplement the latest treatment strategies. These Guidelines are a work in progress that may be refined as often as new significant data become available. The NCCN Guidelines® are a consensus statement of its authors regarding their views of currently accepted approaches to treatment. Any clinician seeking to apply or consult any NCCN Guidelines® is expected to use independent medical judgment in the context of individual clinical circumstances to determine any patient's care or treatment. The NCCN makes no warranties of any kind whatsoever regarding their content, use, or application and disclaims any responsibility for their application or use in any way.

Ocular side effects of systemically administered chemotherapy

Tables of Possible Side Effects for Commonly-Used Oncology Drugs

"The overall contribution of curative and adjuvant cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adults was estimated to be 2.1% in the USA . It is clear that cytotoxic chemotherapy only makes a minor contribution to cancer survival." - Graeme Morgan, Robyn Ward, and Michael Barton

2006 Chemotherapy impairs the brain, killing crucial neural cells and causing key parts of the brain to shrink.

New findings add to a growing body of evidence suggesting that the mental fuzziness, memory loss and cognitive impairment often reported by cancer patients but often dismissed by oncologists - is a serious problem.

Key areas of the brain including the prefrontal, parahippocampus and cingulate gyri shrink during chemotherapy.

The damage continues for several months after chemotherapy is stopped.

MRI scans show cause of chemobrain

"Nearly every chemotherapy patient experiences short term problems with memory and concentration.

But about 15% suffer prolonged effects of what is known medically as chemotherapy induced cognitive impairment.

The symptoms are remarkably consistent:

a mental fogginess that may include problems with memory, word retrieval, concentration, processing numbers, following instructions, multitasking and setting priorities." - Jane E. Brody

"Those of us on the front lines have known this for a long time, now we have neuropathological evidence that what we are seeing involves an anatomic change." - Dr. Stewart Fleishman*, director of cancer supportive services at Beth Israel Medical Center and St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center

unique library index

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of the Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
