My guess is that Sanjay tried and couldn't find it and *then* asked
for help that was beyond his local resources. The request was quite
specific - it wasn't one of those - "please send me all references on cancer"
requests. I too have come to the conclusion that the paper doesn't exist
as I couldn't find it in a host of bibliographic databases :-(. It may
have been a poster at a meeting or some such item that might be mentioned
or even referenced but not appear in the general literature - it's hard
to tell without knowing more about where he found the partial citation.
At any rate he can call Myers and ask him because a little gopher
searching tells me:
