Erythrocyte examination developed by Sklenar
Dr. Sklenar was a contemporary of the well-known researcher and cancer specialist, Dr. Scheller, and he studied Dr. Scheller’s methods of detecting cancer in the blood. For 12 years he worked with the Scheller method, and he gained a lot of experience with this method. After long, intensive research, he was able to bring the right dyes together for his blood examination method. He applied his method in practice for close to thirty years. The examination uses a light optical microscope with 1200-1500 times magnification. The erythrocytes are dyed with a special, modified, methylene blue solution. This method is based on the principle that healthy cells will not let any dye through. Only damaged cells are permeable, whereby the larger color molecules pass through the membrane and can dye abnormal structures.
The following stages can be differentiated in a cancer illness:
- the preliminary phase of cancer, which according to professor Chiurco at the University of Rome is a conditio sine qua non (without other condition) for cancer.
- the general cancer illness, with initial lactic acid fermentation in the cells, but still without visible carcinoma formation
- the carcinoma
- the distribution or metastases of the carcinoma.
During the preliminary phase of cancer, the erythrocytes change and granula occur in the erythrocytes. At the beginning of the lactic acid fermentation in the cells and with the carcinoma, smaller and larger blisters form that Scheller called lysomes. With healthy blood the dyed blood smear shows no changes in the erythrocytes, because the macromolecules of the dye cannot penetrate the fine pores of the healthy cell membrane.
Only a diseased cell membrane with enlarged pores can permit the large dye molecules to pass through, so that the structures within the cell become visible.
