A ballyhooed flu drug fails tryout with americans associated press Gaithersburg my. A bad news for flu sufferers government scientists say a Long anticipated drug promised to Lessen patients misery has not shown it works for americans so they rejected its approval for use. Glaxo wellcome had hoped to sell Relenza an inhaled drug racing to become the first new flu Medicine in 30 years in time for next years flu season. But scientific advisers to the food and drug administration said that so far studies do not prove that inhaling Relenza helps americans fight off the flu. They voted 13-4 it needs More study. It was a major blow to Glaxo which argued studies in Europe and Australia showed Relenza shortened patients flu bouts by up to 2�?~/2 Days compared with patients who inhaled a Dummy drug. Relenza also seemed to make flu less severe for some patients in those studies. Inhaling it daily for five Days Cut by 29 percent the Chance of flu worsening into bronchitis or even pneumonia a serious risk for tens of thousands of people particularly the elderly. And preliminary results from ongoing studies worldwide suggest the Best use for Relenza would be to Stem a flu epidemic because taking it daily seems to Cut by 60 percent to 80 percent the Chance of catching the disease in the first place. That could be particularly useful to keep flu from sweeping through nursing Homes and their vulnerable patients. Based on such data Relenza a Sale has just been approved in Sweden and has been recommended in Australia. But Relenza did no to help As much when Given to americans with the flu. Under Glaxo a Best Case analysis it seemed to shorten the flu a typical we Klong attack by just one Day among americans. Fra officials however attacked that study As inadequate and said Relenza offered americans no Benefit. Why did Relenza seem to work better abroad than Here after All. The flu last year when Relenza was studied was no worse in the United states. The company said americans in the experimental trials did no to Start taking the drug soon enough. Using Relenza within 36 hours of the first symptom is vital it said and euro peans and australians did that. But americans frequently did no to Start Relenza for 48 hours or even longer. Plus americans were More than twice As Likely to use lots of tylenol cough syrup and other Over the counter medicines to treat their symptoms. That confused the study because those drugs gave Relief even to patients who took the Dummy Medicine instead of Helen a.

The Austria press Agency said five people were missing. However Hopes were fading Early today of finding survivors.

Authorities said among the dead in Galuer were eight germans including two children two Danes and six austrians a All residents of the Village of 700. Rescue workers search for Avalanche victims wednesday in Austria a Western Tyrol resort of Galuer hit late tuesday by an Avalanche. The death toll May exceed 25. A photo census settles on plan 2 methods for 2 totals associated press Washington a saying the time has run out for bickering Over methods census director Kenneth Prewitt announced wednesday the 2000 census will provide a traditional head count for congressional apportionment to be followed by a a More accurate number for other purposes. A a we be simply got to be doing it. We be got to move Forward a Prewitt told a news conference 13 months before his Agency has to count the nation s estimated 275 million people. Prewitt said his Bureau will use traditional methods to make population estimates for the 50 states by dec. 31, 2000, for use in distributing the 435 seats in the House. The supreme court required such counting for apportionment in a decision last month. But the Job will not be finished then Prewitt said. The Bureau will then undertake a statistical sampling method it Calls accuracy and coverage evaluation to determine How Many people were missed and to develop More accurate numbers. Those numbers will be released april i 2001, for use when states draw new congressional and legislative districts. They also will be available for use in distributing Federal funds and other purposes. Plans to use statistical sampling in the census have brought heated debate Between the administration and Congress and Prewitt a announcement Drew prompt criticism from House speaker Dennis Hastert. A while congressional republicans Are committed to developing Legal Community based initiatives to count everyone in America in a disappointed that the Clinton Gore administration apparently will not allow the professionals at the census Bureau to actually count everyone a Hastert said in a statement. After producing two census numbers in 1990 a one with sampling one without a the Bureau had been seeking to avoid confusion with a one number count in 2000. To announce a two number census now Hastert said is a a hypocritical and a Prewitt said he does no to see it As a two number census but rather one number that is less Complete another that is More Complete. The lengthy debates Over sampling have delayed preparations for census 2000, and Prewitt stressed that there is no longer any room for discussion of methods. A Given the lateness of the hour we must acknowledge the hard reality that we no longer have the luxury of debates about alternative designs or substitute procedures a he said. Hubble trouble May Force emergency repair Mission associated press Washington a mechanical problems that threaten to shut Down the astronomical observations of the Hubble space Telescope May prompt a repair Mission six months earlier than planned to the $1.7 billion spacecraft Nasa officials told Congress on wednesday. The problem is ailing gyroscopes said Daniel Goldin the administrator of the National aeronautics and space administration. Gyroscopes Are used for the stability and Fine acting the Hubble needs to gather of i Point Light from stars billions of Light years away. The loss of All gyroscopes would mean the space Telescope could not make astronomical observations but it would not threaten the spacecraft officials said. Instead the failure of the gyros would cause the Craft to go into an automatic Quot Safe Model until repairs Are made. The Hubble launched in 1990 and designed to remain operational until 2010, needs three gyroscopes to work properly and it has lost two of its six. Another Gyro a is sick and May go Down in three months a Goldin said. If the Hubble loses a fourth Gyro it will have to be shut Down until a space shuttle Crew goes up to the orbiting Telescope and installs a new set of gyroscopes he said. A decision about an emergency Mission is expected by next week. The problem is in wires that carry Power to the rapidly spinning gyroscopes. The gyros can operate on either of the two wires but when one wire Breaks it causes an increase in voltage carried by the other. In earlier Gyroscope failures engineers saw a sudden increase in voltage carried by one wire. Within weeks that wire also failed. One wire has already failed in the ailing Gyro said Leckrone. Should All of Hubble a gyroscopes shut Down he said the spacecraft would switch automatically to a Safe Mode that keeps its solar Power array pointed at the Sun. As Long As the Craft is powered by the Sun engineers on the ground can control it. Teddy s liquor stores a Palatine a Palatine a Arlington Heights a Crystal Lake 25 n. Northwest Hwy. 1735 n.
