The bacteria that cause Legionnaires disease killer of 34 people in Philadelphia four years ago are particular ly dangerous because of their ability to evade some body defenses a New York doctor reported Sunday Marcus A Horwitz of Rockefeller University said lab tests show the microbes penetrate the white blood cells that should kill them The germs then use the defensive cells as a shelter and multiply rapidly inside them Since its discovery following the Philadelphia outbreak Legionnaires disease has been found to be the cause of other outbreaks of a severe type of pneumonia that hits especially hard at elderly peo ple and those weakened by il lness It is now appreciated that Legionnaires disease occurs worldwide and it appears to be a major form of pneumonia in the United States Horwitz said at a briefing before reporting to the annual meeting of the American Society for Clinical Investiga tion The bacteria causing Legionnaires disease are pro bably spread through the air he said Air conditioning systems have been implicated in several outbreaks Horwitz and Dr Samuel C Silverstein found in laboratory experiments that bacteria of the same virulent strain that caused the epidemic at the Tyrone Hospital ADMISSIONS Edith Sensor E 14th st Clarence Batcheler Jr 323 W 17th st Amos Kephart Smithmill Trisha Riddinger Tipton Debra Gutshall Huntingdon Peggy Sprankle Sandy

grew inside cells called monocytes In a typical experiment Horwitz said each bacterium reproduced itself every two hours in the cell that should have killed it In a few days the bacteria had increased 100000fold in the laboratory culture destroying the defen sive monocytes Horwitz said electron microscopic studies of these infected monocytes showed them to be full of Legion naires disease bacteria The scientists discovered that another segment of the bodys immune system a white blood cell called a leukocyte also is ineffective against the Legionnaire germ But Horwitz said a third white blood cell type a lymphocyte was effective against the bacteria when the cells cooperated with the monocytes Other bacteria that grow within monocytes are the germs that cause tuberculosis and leprosy These bacteria are called intracellular pathogens Horwitz said the new laboratory findings suggest a vaccine that produces only an tibodies tofight off invading bacteria may not be effective Whether other types of vaccine are feasible in the prevention of Legionnaires disease remains to be seen He said some antibiotics particularly erythromycin appear effective in treating Legionnaires disease Editors

unexplained reasons may be infertile because of reactions by the bodys defensive immune system to sperm Alan D Schreiber of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine said men can produce antibodies against their own sperm or the immune system of their wives can produce antisperm proteins Most infertility is caused by a variety of other problems but Schreiber and coworkers said in a report to the American Society for Clinical Investigation that 10 percent of 400 patients tested with unexplained infertility had evidence of immune system reactions against sperm The researchers reached that conclusion after develop ing an improved blood test to measure antisperm an tibodies proteins that attack invading substances Six patients with antisperm reactions were studied for several years Schreiber said two women became pregnant after their antisperm an tibody count dropped spontaneously Four other patients were treated with drugs to suppress the antisperm reaction Three of these patients were men and after drug therapy one was able to impregnate his wife The fourth patient treated with drugs was a woman and she conceived following the therapy This is an early study but an exciting one Schreiber said at a news conference before the report was presented at the medical meeting The potential is in triguing and exciting Schreiber said earlier tests for antisperm activity were not very accurate and conse quently have not been used ex tensively He said the new test could be adapted for general medical use He also noted many men who have a vasectomy develop antibodies to their own sperm This develop ment he said should be con sidered when men seek surgical reversals of vasectomies because the an tibodies can cause a persistent infertility Storms Rage In
