You might be saying to yourself, where’s Kent been?
To be honest, since the runaway success of Plague of Corruption, your humble correspondent has become quite the favorite of his publishing company. I’m on track to publish four, possibly five, books this year.
And in an amazing plot twist that nobody saw coming, this renegade writer started the New Year off with a positive Kirkus review
for his new book, The Case for Interferon,
published on January 5, 2021. Not only is it a positive Kirkus Review, it’s a “preferred”
review, meaning it’s going to be featured in their monthly magazine, which come out on January 15, 2021.
Don’t worry, I’m sure I’ll go back to being slammed by the mainstream media for my next book, but for now I hope you’ll just savor this moment with me.
Just below is an excerpt from that review:
The Case for Interferon: How a 1980s Cancer Drug Might Be the Wonder Therapy for the Twenty-First Century
A scientist advocates the revival of an antiviral cancer treatment popular in the 1980s.
Cummins, a microbiologist and veterinarian, has produced an astute, thought-provoking, and convincing testament to the revitalization of low-dose interferon administration. The goal of his book—written with former attorney Heckenlively—is to renew clinical and public interest in the drug, which came into prominence in the early ’80s. Despite proven antiviral and anti-cancer properties in animals, the treatment failed to surpass the scientific community’s lofty expectations for it in human trials.
Cummins, whose narrative perspective predominantly anchors the work, first charts his own interest and history in veterinary medicine and how his distinguished career in immunological research science prepared him to become a leading voice in interferon application advocacy for animals as well as humans. The volume describes interferon as a naturally occurring protein found in the human body during a viral infection that has been resoundingly beneficial for animals in veterinary arenas as well as helpful in providing broad protection to humans by shortening the duration of viral shedding.
Although early Japanese and Russian studies bolstered low-dose interferon as an influenza prophylaxis, its widespread usage never materialized. Cummins embarked on a career researching oral human interferon and authoring many articles on its efficacy in trials. This study-heavy work shares the wealth of more than five decades of research backing interferon’s use, including controversial success stories, like a veterinarian who treated himself with the drug after contracting HIV; case studies with compromised patients; and media coverage. Parts of the narrative utilize scientific jargon that may confuse some lay readers, though others will find themselves persuaded by the sensible and science-supported arguments.
Concluding chapters offer an update on the current state of more recent clinical trials and an enlightening lesson on viral behavior and how the immune system’s reaction to classic coronaviruses could prepare the human body’s defense mechanisms against SARS-CoV-2. Cummins gets personal in the closing pages, admitting to suffering from Parkinson’s disease and planning to relinquish his participation in the effort to reawaken interest in interferon usage. He asserts that interferon has its share of detractors who believe the drug “threatens to upend the pharmaceutical bottom line.”
Sound research and expert experience create an illuminating work on the potential benefits of interferon. —Kirkus Reviews
I’d greatly appreciate it if you purchased a copy from Amazon or the bookseller of your choice and posted a review.
