“THE TRYPSIN
TREATMENT OF CANCER”

In Table 2 the
number of doses given in each of the nine cases during the whole period of
treatment is given. These doses are, of course, those which at the present time
have been given in York, Uppingham, London, and possibly elsewhere.

Taken together, the nine cases received
about thirty-six doses of trypsin and about eight of amylopsin. On an average
adequate treatment extending over 120 days, the total trypsin injected would be
at least 1,000 x 60 units, or 60,000 units; of amylopsin, 2,000 x 60 units, or
120,000 units. In the nine cases the total number of tryptic units injected, as
far as can be determined, was 36,000 units; of amylopsin, 16,000 units. To have
made success more certain there should have been injected—of trypsin, 720,000
units ; of amylopsin, 1,440,000 units. The
