An apparatus has been designed containing the following basic elements: A voltmeter, an ammeter, replaceable electrodes that must be made of copper, a glass container and a semipermeable (pergamine) membrane.
An electrolytic solution (pH 7.0) used as reaction medium for the experiment.
Its Scientific Basis
The voltmeter is used to assure a constant voltage of 32V potential between the electrodes in order to further the reaction. The milliammeter is for measuring the ionic current resulting from charged ionic particles, traveling toward the negative or positive electrodes depending on their charge. The copper electrodes transmit the current, since they are good conductors of electricity, with the added advantage of being of a metal that easily combines with other elements, resulting in copper salts. Since glass is inert, it is used as a container.
In order to duplicate as closely as possible the cellular membrane, a membrane of pergamine paper is used, which is semipermeable - meaning that it only allows passage of certain chemical substances.
Serum is used instead of plasma or whole blood, because of its bio-physico-chemical characteristics, and most importantly due to it being a yellowish transparent liquid capable of producing the various violet tonalities indicating corresponding cancerous states. It contains minerals, proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates.
Although the lipids, proteins, and carbohydrates also have their specific electrical charges, these are not as "sensitive" to the 32V current used as are the minerals. When these are stimulated by this current, they leave the serum and pass through the pores of the pergamine membrane, which does not occur with the organic chemical elements to the same extent. Proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates decompose into CO2 and O2 principally. Because of the size of their molecules, the proteins hardly pass through the pores of the membrane, some going to the positive, others to the negative poles. Copper from the electrodes also helps the reaction, combining with elements of opposite change to form copper salts the majority of which is deposited at the bottom of the glass container along with other minerals.
The reagent does not directly intervene in the reaction, in the formation of salts nor in the attraction of the ions within the inner medium where the serum is contained within the pergamine membrane. Its mission is only that of a catalyst or activator of the reactions.
Electric current is used to produce the coloring. The mechanism of this and the specific agents responsible for this have not yet been elucidated. In the external liquid containing the reagent are now found the minerals which have migrated from the serum. The inner liquid now contains lipids, proteins and a very small quantity of carbohydrates. The reaction takes two hours at 32V after which the internal liquid is poured into a test tube to evaluate the color tone.
If this is pale violet, the patient has a propensity for cancer; if there is a darker violet, the patient has cancer although as yet there are no signs nor symptoms of the disease discoverable by classical methods. Finally, very dark violet indicates cancer discoverable by classic methods.
During the reaction, the pH, milliamperage and temperature of the external liquid are determined. After the reaction, the external liquid is placed in a glass container to again measure the pH: for cancer patients in males, it will be from 8.5 to 9.5+, in females 9.5 to 10.5, in normal individuals the pH of the external liquid is below 8.5 (see Graphs 1 and 2).
One notes when temperatures are taken during the reactions, that these are higher in female cancer patients than in male cancer patients, and that in general temperatures are higher in cancer patients than in normal people (see Graph 3). All these are extra data, helping to confirm the diagnosis essentially obtained by the coloration, and are complementary to this.
The patient must arrive in a fasting condition, 7 cc of blood are removed and are contrifuged to separate serum from plasma; 3 cc are taken of the serum and placed within the pergamine membrane.
Previously, 40 cc of reagent have been poured into the glass container used for the experiment. The pergamine membrane is placed into the reagent, the electrodes are installed and the machine is turned on, making sure it registers 32V. The time is noted.
Before placing the electrodes and serum membrane, the pH and temperature of the reagent are measured, and noting the laboratory temperature which should be 20°C.
The glass container should be perfectly clean, the electrodes as well. These should be cleaned after each reaction and are replaced after four reactions. -
After two hours, the machine is turned off, the membrane is removed, its liquid poured into transparent test tube. The serum color is observed in front of a color scale. If this is violet, the exact shading is noted. If violet is not present, cancer is absent. In the future we are hoping to analyze both the serum and the minerals present in the external liquid after the reaction.< return to articles page >
