Ethanol Treatment of Cancer & Model of Cancer Growth Wave (“Consciousness”)

Miroslaw Kozlowski, Janina Marciak-Kozlowska


Scientists have known for some time that ethanol can kill cancer cells, but several limitations held it back from becoming a broadly used treatment. A team at Duke University has recently developed a new type of ethanol solution that can be injected directly into a variety of tumors to potentially offer a new, safe, and cheap form of cancer treatment. In this paper the mathematical model for tumor growth, based on Boltzmann type equation is formulated. The tumor growth factor is defined. The tumor cells density is calculated. It is shown that the tumor evolution strongly depends on the growth factor k. For k<0.5 tumor density oscillate and tumor is in the “ hesitate” state. For k>0.5 tumor lost the oscillatory character and grows abruptly and emits cells to the host body. We argue that the oscillation of the density of tumor crates the tumor waves which can be coined as the tumor conscious waves. The tumor waves “inform” host consciousness. We argue that ethanol influenced the consciousness of tumor and reset the interaction of tumor –host consciousness. The ethanol injected to cancer tumor preumbly change the growth factor k.
