HC Deb 14 June 1944 vol 400 c1993W
Dr. Peters

asked the Minister of Health in how many cases of cancer a recently discovered drug has been used successfully to either inhibit or cure the disease; whether it is being made available to all hospitals; and in how many similar cases it has not proved so successful or encouraging in its results.

Mr. Willink

Without more information I cannot trace the drug to which my hon. Friend refers. When therapeutic discoveries are made, the usual practice is for the persons concerned to publish their results in the medical Press; the knowledge is thus made available to the whole profession.
