Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 7, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 10 The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Tues., May 7. 197 Rare Disease Clogs Lungs With'Gravel TOKRANCE. Calif. Lcroy Diekman is breathing easier now that doctors havi removed four pounds of saintlike matter from his lungs. Dickman, a 32-year-old building contractor, had been having breathing problems for about a year, and it finally got so bad he couldn't hold up his end of the work. "I was getting short of wind all the he said. "And one day 1 accidentally cut my thumb and my hand turned a little blue." Rare Disease Doctors at Harbor General hospital diagnosed the problem as a rare disease that causes the lung to fill up with granular protein material. They attached a device that looked like' a miniature jackhammer to Diekman's chest to shake the granules loose and then flushed the lungs 18 times with a salty solution. "I think the best explanation is that it's a disease associated with some change in the en- Dr. Karlman Wasserman, chief of respira- tory diseases at Harbor General, said of Diekman's ailment, pulmonary alveolar proteinosis. "It's a little frightening, isn't Young Victims Wassernxan said the disease turned up in people in their 20s and that the .victims "come from all over the country and from all occupations. "We don't know whether these people are making this stuff at a rapid rate or whether they do not have a normal mechanism to dissolve the material." He said the flushing treat- ment does not cure the disease but enables the patient to live a normal life until the granules build up again, usually in about a year or two. Diekman said he was shocked to see all the granules that came from his lungs but that he feels a lot better now that they're gone. "I'm back to work now. I'm even toting a bit of he said. Age-Old Frozen Germs Revived Bacteria frozen in a state of suspended animation in An- tarctica for at least years revived when exposed to air and were grown in active colonies, two California scien- tists have reported. The researchers, Dr. Roy E. Cameron, and Frank A. Morelli, of Darwin Research Institute Dana Point, California, told the National Science Foundation the bacteria were found in per- manently frozen ground and sediment cores drilled at two separate sites about 60 miles apart in the McMurdo sound region of Antarctica. Using aseptic techniques and sterilized hand drill, chips were removed from the center of the cores. The samples were then inoculated into culture media. Minimum age of the cores in which the bacteria were found was estimated by geologists at the drilling site to be years. "The geologists told us the deeper sections of the cores, in which bacteria were also found, could be as much as a million years Dr. Cameron said. Political Bombing, But Which Target? SAVQNA, Italy (UPI) Police said they were con- vinced it was a political bomb- ing but could only try to guess what the target was as there were several options. The building where the bomb went off houses the office of a Christian Democratic senator on the third floor. A Com- munist party office is next door. Also next door is a movie house showing a film abpul the last days of Benilo Mussolini.
