    Background: M. GASTON NAESSENS, THE SELF-TAUGHT BIOLOGIST WHO CLAIMS TO BE CURING LEUKAEMIA SUFFERERS WITH AN UNLICENSED "SERUM", HAS FLOWN TO PARIS FROM CORSICA. WHILE THERE HE HAS HELD TALKS WITH PROFESSOR PIERRE DENOIX, A CANCER SPECIALIST, WHO IS TO SUBMIT THE SERUM TO OFFICIAL TEST.

    THIS WILL BE DONE AT THE PUBLIC CANCER INSTITUTE AT VILLEJUIF, NEAR PARIS, AND IS EXPECTED TO TAKE THREE WEEKS. HOWEVER, A FINAL JUDGMENT ON THE SERUM MAY TAKE AS LONG AS TWO TO THREE YEARS.

    M. NAESSENS HAS TOLD PARIS DOCTORS HE MUST RETURN TO CORSICA BY THE WEEKEND. THERE HE IS TREATING THREE CHILDREN IN A PRIVATE CLINIC AT AJACCIO. "THEY ARE MAKING GOOD PROGRESS". HE SAID, "AND ARE GETTING BETTER AND BETTER".

    DURING HIS FRENCH VISIT M. NAESSENS IS STAYING WITH THE PARENTS OF A BOY HE CLAIMS TO HAVE CURED OF LEUKAEMIA. MEANWHILE, PROFESSOR DENOIX HAS ANNOUNCED TO THE PRESS THAT HE MET M. NAESSENS AND DISCUSSED WITH HIM THE SEQUENCE OF EVENTS WHICH HAVE LED HIM TO THINK THAT HE HAD THE MEANS OF TREATING CANCERS. "IT WAS DECIDED TO CARRY OUT A CERTAIN NUMBER OF VERIFICATIONS AND INVESTIGATIONS", HE SAID, "WITHOUT WHICH IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO ADVANCE AN OPINION."
