[Protocell] works on all forms of cancers. Very good reports have been received regarding brain, breast and lung tumors as well as non-Hodgkin's lympomas. The success rate for [Protocell] is not perfect. It depends on the type of cancer being treated. It generally runs at about 50% to 80%. For many forms of cancer, [Protocell]'s success rate is far superior to any type of therapy now available.

Doctors don't have time to examine data from laboratory tests of cancer treatments; they only read the summaries. This page compares the summary statement of the NCI laboratory test of Cancell (now called Cantron or Protocel ) with the actual test data sheets from that test. The duplicity is appalling.

After study of the literature and other available information, the American Cancer Society has found no evidence that the use of Cancell/Entelev results in objective benefit in the treatment of cancer in human beings. Lacking such evidence, the American Cancer Society strongly urges individuals with cancer not to seek treatment from practitioners utilizing this compound.

[Cancell] is a liquid that was promoted as a treatment for cancer and other diseases. Cancell was made using different mixtures of ingredients, mainly by two companies, since the late 1930s. None of the common chemicals in these products is known to be effective in treating any type of cancer. Since 1989, it has been illegal in the United States to make, sell, or give Cancell as a treatment for any disease.

I have every reason to believe that this is pseudoscientific nonsense.
