LAUSANNE, Switzerland (PRWEB) July 11, 2017
In “The Conquest of Cancer—a Long-Ignored Breakthrough: Autologous Tissue Anticancer Immunization Therapy” (published by AuthorHouse UK), author and biotechnologist Vladimir Kalina describes the circumstances of a revelatory experience made by Dr. Karel Fortyn in 1957 and its fundamental scientific significance in the struggle against cancer.
Kalina notes that while there are “announcements of new promising techniques (there are) no really convincing results in cancer therapy,” and that this is indicative of the general inattention to decisive breakthroughs in cancer therapy, which he says have nearly always encountered fierce opposition, taking a long time before they were finally recognized as major discoveries.
“The Conquest of Cancer—a Long-Ignored Breakthrough” is a call to action, encouraging readers to be more aware and empathetic of those living with cancer, which Kalina notes is a costly major health problem – becoming only more expensive to treat.
An excerpt from “The Conquest of Cancer—a Long-Ignored Breakthrough”:
We have all learnt to accept the authority of well-established public and scientific institutions, and it is only natural to have confidence in officially recognized trends and new developments of major importance. So when there is a controversy that we do not really understand, we are more inclined to accept the official verdict.

About the Author
Born in Prague, author and biotechnologist Vladimir Kalina’s school years started in Paris when in 1940 war events brought him to Britain. There, intrigued by the penicillin adventure of Professor Chain’s group at Oxford, he found early interest in the medical sciences. Coincidentally, in 1950 the author made Professor Chain’s acquaintance in Czechoslovakia when Chain was there as consultant for the government. They met again in Switzerland under similar circumstances. Later, when the author was defending a thesis in bioengineering at Dijon University he was honored having Sir Ernst Chain as President of the jury. The critical coincidence relating to later work is that shortly after Dr. Fortyn’s revelatory biological finding in 1957, Kalina had in mind a project based on the same principle. Becoming acquainted by chance in 1999 both realized they passed their matriculation in the same school. What followed is the result of their mutual understanding of the cancer challenge.
