Typically, in related contracts, during this period of cancer research, when monkeys were used, the contracts specifically stated “nonhuman primates.” The absence of this clarification strongly suggests humans—Huntsville Prisoners—were the experimental subjects.

Do you remember the technical name for his specific type of cancer? More and more types of cancer are being traced to virii, so it's starting to look like some strains of cancer are communicable (or at least the virus which leads to the cancer).
