Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE HERALD Tuesday, April 17, 1973 _. Monkeys used in hepatitis research By JANE K. BRODV Nuw York Times Service NEW YORK have reported their ability to infect Marmoset monkeys with the virus that causes usfiv- tious hepatitis in man ar.d to use the animals to propagate the virus, the first crucial step toward development of a vac- cine against tliis epidemic form of tiic debilitating liver disease. I Infectious hepatitis, uuli k e s.M'uin hepatitis which is most often spread by injection in' of containu'nated blood, is usually transmitted by contamination of food or water the virus excreted by in- fected persons. Infectious hep- atitis, with its accompanying flu-like symptoms, fever and i.simdice lasting tor several weeks, can spread rapidly through such groups as stu- dents, athletic teams and in- stitutionalized persons. The report, by rcasearchers at (lie Merck Institute for ther- apeutic research in West Point, Pa, and the Louisiana State I'niversity international center for medical research and train- ing in San Jose, Costa Rica, appears in the current issue of Architect loses appeal LONDON (AP1 The House' May. 1971. and fled to Sweden j while awaiting sentence.

Cheng Tsu-tsai, 35, had ap- pealed to the House of Lords, Britain's highest court, for a writ of habeas corpus and re- lease from London's Pentonville jail.

Solandt, former chairman of the Science Council of Can- ada, says anti-pollution devices for automobiles may be a waste of money in Canada. He told a symposium at the University of Toronto school of hygiene Saturday that such de- vices are designed to reduce pollution from auto exhausts but they also increase fuel con- sumption. He called it "sloppy thinking about environmental prob- lems." secretary of the World Union for Formosan Independence, an organization dedicated to the overthrow of Chiang Kai-shek. The murder attempt was made on the general's son, Chiang Ching-kuo, during a New York demonstration. Cheng contended that he was innocent and that in any event the office was political and therefore not subject to extra- dition.

According to the report, this is the first demonstration of a specific virus that has been shown to be related to the human disease. In 1967, scien- tists at the University of Illi- nois isolated a virus from Marmosets that had been in- fected with blood from human hepatitis patients, but there was some doubt as to whether this virus was the same as that wtiich caused the human di- sease. In the new research, the sci- entists first infected Marmo- sets with blood serum from a human hepatitis patient, then isolated the virus from the ani- mals and infected other healthy Marmosets with it. In the sec- ond group of Marmosets, the virus produced pathological and biochemical cha nges that matched those in people with the disease, the report states. According to Dr. Maurice R. Hilleman, who directs virus re- search at Merck, the Marmoset has proven a reliable animal in which to grow the human infection hepatitis virus. The next step, he said, will be to try to grow the virus in tissue culture, using the Marmoset to check periodically to be sure that the culture still contains the infectious agent. Once a vaccine is developed, the animal could be used to test its effectiveness prior to testing it in human beings, Hil- leman pointed out.

PM Smith 10 years in office SALISBUBY (AP) Prime Minister Ian Smith of Rhodesia has started his 10th year in office with the prospects of his white-supremacfet government being recognized by most of the world as bleak as ever. Smith, who declared Rhodesia independent of Britain on Nov. 11, 1965, has been talking with the British since, in an effort to settle the deadlock between the two countries. The break with Britain re- sulted in an international trade embargo against Rhodesia, where about whites rule five million blacks. These sanctions have not had the widely-anticipated effect of crippling the Rhodesian econ- omy. But sanctions have re- duced Rhodesia's economic de- velopment to a great degree, giving the Smith regime in- creasing problems with black unemployment and the over-all development of the cauntry. The government was bitterly disappointed when a British commission, headed by Lord Pearce, went back to London last year and ruled that a set- tlement agreement signed by Smith and British Foreign Sec- retary Sir Alec Douglas-Home not acceptable to the ma- jority of Rhodesians.
