HC Deb 10 December 1942 vol 385 cc1681-2
23. Sir George Mitcheson

asked the Minister of Health whether, within his knowledge, any investigation has been made by any competent authority into the use of H.11 Extract in the treatment of cancer?

Mr. E. Brown

The only way in which it is possible for such a treatment to be investigated is for the records of all patients who have been submitted to treatment to be published and laid open to criticism and investigation by the medical profession. One such publication has already been made, in "Medical Press and Circular," 23rd April, 1941—"Anti-growth Substances in the Treatment of Cancer"—and I understand that another publication is in course of preparation.

Sir F. Fremantle

Is it not a fact that the British Empire Cancer Campaign has a special investigation committee investigating every new form of treatment, and that it has gone very thoroughly into all the new methods brought before it?
