Possible adverse side effects from treatment with laetrile.

Abstract

Individuals who have a diminished capacity to detoxify cyanide to thiocyanate because of either a genetic predisposition (e.g. as occurs in those with Leber's Optic Atrophy) or a diet low in sulfur containing amino acids are predicted to be at increased risk to developing adverse side effects from laetrile, a cyanide containing substance used in cancer treatment.
