First Pulse: A personal journey in cancer research  -   Excerpts  + Plates    
I see cancer as an embryo cell that can't make the next transition. This idea of disease as a failure to mature is an old one, and it has to be clarified in detail. There are three major events in maturation that i know of (and I'm sure there are many more that I haven't considered) that have to do with energy flow in the cell. There are a number of major enzymatic events that have to be expressed in order for energy to flow. That's just to get started. And then for the maintenance of that flow there's an enormous number of, shall we say, stock enzymes that run to do the job. So when the impedance is wrong--impedance being the current at that resistance which is dependent on particular frequencies for its transmission--or the wire breaks, you have to change the impedance or restore the connection. This is what palladium DNA reductase, the molecule we developed in the 1990s, does.
Fantastic Voyage
The discovery of the palladium complex as a therapeutic metallo-organic agent suggests that there are many more mysterious catalytic metals that may well be utilized by living organisms for growth. There also may be alternative pathways that can be substituted for existing enzymes in case there are genetic defects. The periodic table is so extensive it invites a great deal of work with metals in the body. What we're now trying to do is to discover the electrical schematic at the cellular level. I never dreamed that the reactions were so organized and concerted. What we have in the palladium complex is a molecular electronic device.
