(Unconventional Therapy File. – written in)

Subject: Antineoplastons

To: Bruce A. Chabner, M.D.
Director, Division of Cancer Treatment

I thought you would be interested in this for several reasons:

1. Our Unconventional Cancer Treatment approach seems to be working well (thanks to Mike Hawkins).

2. Our on-site review process is working well (thanks to Dorothy Macfarlane)

3. Antineoplastons deserve a closer look

It turns out that the agents are well defined, pure chemical entities

They are relatives of Thalidomide with presumed good CNS penetration

We are working with DTEP on them

The human brain tumor responses are real

We will keep you informed
