Officials said the drugs, reserpine and rescinnaminc, have been used in (he United States for 20 years and ac- count for more than one-fourth of the medicines prescribed for hypertension. Reserpine alone is used by three million to four million U. S. patients. Separate studies done in Bristol, England; Helsinki, Finland, and Boston, Mass., are to be published in this Sat- urday's edition of Lancet, the British medical journal. The studies found lhat among women over 60 years old the breast cancer rate was as much as three times higher than normal for those who had taken reserpine over long pe- riods of time. Officials of HEW said fur- ther investigation is necessary because the studies involved checks of patients' records and not clinical drug trials. A preliminary review of the studies has been made by the National Cancer institute, the National Heart and Lung in- stitute, the National Institute of Mental Health, the Food and Drug Administration and the Veterans Administration. Charles C. Edwards, HEW assistant secretary of health, said the agencies have agreed to alert the general public and Hie medical profession lo the findings. However, until the U. S. review is concluded, Edwards recommended that there be "no general change or disrup- tion therapy" in patients with high blood pressure. He. emphasized that the studies did not find a general increased cancer risk in hy- pertension patients nor an increased risk associated with oilier anti-hypertension drugs.
