Galveston County Daily News, The (Newspaper) - December 16, 1949, Galveston, Texas Expert Says Simple Synthetics May Be Used for Costly Drugs LAFF-A-DAY CHICAGO. OK. 15. University of IllinoU drUR wptrt predicted today that simple thetlo as aspirin- may be used to stimulate the adrenal cortex and replace such scarce natural products as Acth and Cortisone. Dr. Carl C. Pfelffer, head ot the department of pharmacolosy at the Unlverilty of Illinois Medical Col- legs, said that mild. pain-WHInr, drugi appear to work by acting on the vital adrenal cortex. HOW DRUGS WORK Medicine, of course, long has known a> the pain-killing proper- ties of such drugs aa aspirin, ami- nopyrina and cinchophen. However. It has not known how these drugs uhal tpectftc organs he body they act. A research team headed by Dr. Pfelffer and including Dr. Eliza- beth Hemmens. Miss Elizabeth Jen- ney Robert Lee. found that aspirin acts by stimulating the ad< renal cortex. Acth and Cortisone (or compound both of which had produced spectacular results In the treat- ment of arthritis and other ail- ments, stimulate the adrenal cortex outer lining of the adrenal the production of hor- nones. ACTH SCARCE Acth Is derived from hog pitui- tary glands and Is very scarce.

Both have extremely comslex chemical structures and although a desperate effort Is being made tc artificial sub- both drugs, some chemists doubt that such syn- thetics will be found. Dr. Pfeiffer said: "In addition to opening the pos- iihllity that these simple drugs may )e used to stimulate the adrenal :ortex, this research points up the mportance of the gland in alleviat- ng pain. BETTER DRUGS "On the basis of our knowledge of how aspirin and the other simple pain-relieving drugs work, we may be able to discover a whole host of better pain-killing drugs than are now available." Dr. Pfelffer warned that neither aminopyrine or cinchophen are safi for promiscuous use, since the for mer may decrease the whlteblood cells In the body and the latter maj damage the liver.
