Federal scientists in a series of Independent tests have found sufficiently High amounts of Nickel in specimens from people who died of a mysterious disease in Penn Sylvania to warrant further investigation of the possibility that a highly toxic chemical Nickel Carbo nyl caused the disease. Meanwhile the group of scientists at the University of Connecticut medical school who first reported the unusually High Tevels of Nickel in victims of the disease Friday began a new series of tests on specimens from autopsies of the last two deaths in the outbreak. Scientists from both groups testing for Nickel at the Federal Center for Dis ease control in Atlanta and the univer sity of Connecticut medical school in Farmington agreed in Telephone inter views that results of tests to Date Al though inconclusive indicate that Nickel carbonyl could have caused the mysterious disease. Twenty six persons have died and 146 others have been afflicted by the unidentified disease which broke out last month after a state american legion convention was held in Philadelphia. The scientists agree that their re sults Are inconclusive because the High Levels of Nickel could reflect contamination resulting from the use of Metal instruments at the time specimens were collected during the autopsies. Both or. John Liddle of the Atlanta Center and or. F. William Sunderman or. Of the University of Connecticut said their groups were taking Steps to determine whether the High Nickel lev Els were due to contamination or to pre Vious toxic Levels of the Metal in the victims bodies. The scientists said they were making additional tests to determine whether the same samples that had High Levels of Nickel also had High Levels of another Metal chromium. The reason is that stainless steel knives and utensils Usu ally contain both Nickel and chromium. The scientists said that test results 1 showing High Levels of both metals would tend to confirm the theory that Metal contamination was responsible for the High Nickel Levels. However if chromium is not found in High Levels it could strengthen the Case for Nickel As the cause of the mysterious disease. The scientists Are also obtaining More specimens from people who died of causes unrelated to the mysterious disease in Philadelphia and other areas in Pennsylvania next Cut and Georgia As controls further tests. We have test result values that dictate it Nickel carbonyl could be the cause of the problem and until study it further we cannot Rule it Liddle a Lexicology is at the Center disease control said. I if positive test results Are obtained and if the chromium analyses Are in conclusive then questions could arise about the need to exhume bodies so that specimens could be obtained with Plas tic or Glass utensils. And health officials Are puzzled about where the Nickel carbonyl came from if the tests show it to be the cause. God knew what to make me Tampa Fla.
