Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE UTHBRIDGE HERAID Tuesday, August 25, 1970 57 FEMALE HELP MUSIC LOANS Treatmen By FRANK CAKEY WASHINGTON (AP) The National Cancer Institute of the United States reported here further evidence of life-prolonging gains against Hodgkin's disease through treatment with a combination of four drugs, one of them a chemical cousin of rocket fuel. The agency said updated analysis of results from a continuing study first reported by The As-s o c i a t e d Press last March shows the four-drug treatment is more than doubling the survival time of patients with advanced Hodgkin's disease who respond to with survival times averaging only about 20 months achieved with single-drug therapy. Hodgkin's disease, named for a British physician, is a cancel1 of the lymph system. It kills approximately Americans annually and strikes some 15.000 new victims each year. It has the highest incidence among those in their 20s and is twice as common in males as in females. The institute's report said 28 of a group of 43 patients treated for an average of 5.8 months by the four-drug technique still are surviving 32 months, at the least, after the end of therapy. One patient now has survived more than 52 months. COULD COME BACK The latter patient is among 17 of the 28 survivors who remain in complete remission from the that is, free of all evidence of cancer, although presumably such remissions ultimately will prove to be temporary, the institute indicated. The agency's announcement said: "The median survival time of the entire group (of the original 43 patients) and the complete responders is not yet known, but in the latter case it will exceed 42 months. "This is more than double the duration of survival of 20 months usually reported in the medical literature for patients with advanced cancer treated with a single-drug therapy." The study was launched by Doctors Vincent T. DeVita, Arthur Serpick and Paul Carbone. all of NCI. Evidence that the study was achieving life-prolonging gains was reported to The Associated Press last March by Dr. C. Gordon Zubrod, scientific director of NCI's anti-cancer drug program, who told a reporter at that time: "A new era in the treatment of advanced Hodgkin's disease has been opened up." CITE FOUR DRUGS The drugs employed in the "shot-gun" treatment are: I. Procarbazine hydrochlor-ide, a synthetic chemical derived in part from Disease t Works one of the rocket fuels used in the space program. 2.

Phono Mr. Symons at Might Revolt TORONTO (CP) Canada's poor might revolt unless other Canadians make some sacrifices, two welfare officials predicted Monday. Dr. John Frei, executive director of the Metropolitan Toronto Social Planning Council, said riots by poor people will result unless politicians step up spending on welfare. Reuoen Baetz, executive director of the Canadian Welfare Council, said the threat of violence by the poor "often, seems to have more effect on changing public attitudes for the better than a logical argument." Both were commenting in interviews en a speech by John Munro, federal health and welfare minister, in Halifax last weekend. Mr. Munro said he did not believe Canada was ready for an all-out attack on poverty because people are not willing to do with less themselves. Mr. Frei said Canadians should stop and think if they really want to live in a society that permits one of every five persons to live in poverty. Mr. Baetz said- welfare specialists are aware of public resistance to costly poverty programs and Mr. Munro displayed 'political guts" in talking openly about it.
