Following the double-blind method, we carried out two experiments by using cell cultures and nude mice. In the first experiment, a qigong master treated the poorly differentiated nasopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma cell line (CNE-2) with his emitted qi, followed by the innoculation of the treated cell (qigong group) and the untreated cells (control group) into 16 female nude mice (NC-Z strain mice). The results showed that the tumor formation of the treated cells was inhibited by an impressive rate of 100% (3/3). The same procedures were followed in the second experiment. The results demonstrated that the inhibiting rate was still100% (4/4). A pathological examination further confirmed that there were no tumo cells in the inoculating site of the qigong group, whereas poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinomas were observed in tumor of the control group. No tumors were found in the livers and lungs of the mice in the qigong group. But in the control group of the first experiment, tumors metastasized to the lung in mouse 2. No tumors were found in the liver of mice in the first experiment or in the livers and lungs of the other mice. Although the mechanism of the effect of the emitted qi still remains unknown, the results of the present research reveals the necessity as well as the possibility of further investigating the inhibition of tumors and its mechanism.
