  • Description

    M. GASTON NAESSENS', THE CORSICAN BIOLOGIST WHOSE ANTI-LEUKAEMIA SERUM HAS BEEN DECLARED USELESS BY THE FRENCH HEALTH MINISTRY, IS STOPPING ITS PRODUCTION, BUT PLANS TO CONTINUE HIS RESEARCH. MEANWHILE, WITH STOCKS IN HAND, HE INTENDS TO COMPLETE TREATMENT OF THE EIGHT LEUKAEMIA VICTIMS WHO HAVE ALREADY BEGUN HIS COURSE.

    SPEAKING LAST NIGHT AT HIS HOME NEAR BASTIA, THE SELF-TAUGHT BIOLOGIST EXPRESSED AMAZEMENT AT THE FINDINGS OF PROFESSOR PIERRE DENOIX, CANCER RESEARCH EXPERT WHO HAS BEEN TESTING THE "ANABLAST" SERUM FOR THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT. M. NAESSENS SAID: "IT IS IMPOSSIBLE THAT COMPLETE TESTS COULD HAVE BEEN CARRIED OUT SO QUICKLY. I STILL HAVE FULL CONFIDENCE IN MY SERUM".

    THE OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT, BRANDING THE SERUM AS "DEVOID OF ANY HEALING ACTION", SAID THE BIOLOGIST'S DOSSIER WAS BEING HANDED OVER TO THE LEGAL AUTHORITIES. TOLD OF THIS, M. NAESSENS SAID HIS FEARS IN THE LEGAL FIELD WERE MINIMAL "AS I HAVE ALWAYS ACTED IN THE STRICT LINE OF RESEARCH".

    HE SAID HE WAS NOW AWAITING FLIGHT TICKETS TO TRAVEL TO NEW YORK ON TUESDAY OR WEDNESDAY THIS WEEK. HE HAD, HE SAID, RECEIVED A WRITTEN INVITATION FROM THE ROCKEFELLER INSTITUTE AND WANTED TO EXPLAIN HIS TREATMENT TO AMERICAN DOCTORS.
