CLAIMS

Having described our invention, we claim:

1. Oligomers of polymer D-lactic acid and D-lactic acid dimer have been shown to sequester L-lactate in or near tumor cells and inhibit tumor cell growth wherein the improvement comprises: a. injecting D-lactic acid dimer locally into, onto, or near cancer cells to kill the tumor cells,b. demonstrating independent effects of...
