_ THE H5SALD Wednesday, December 13, 1971 Virus mav be causing intestinal flu New York Times Service WASHINGTON Scientists at the Natiooal Institutes of Health have photographed and identified particles they beh'eve are viruses that cause the so- called intestinal flu. Their achievement climaxes a medical detective story that began in Norwalk, Ohio, in 1963 uith an outbreak of this common acd acutely uncomfor- table fl'foogs a 25-to- 43 hour ordeal of nausea, vomi- ting and sometimes diarrhea and abdominal cramps. f Material capable of trans-j mitting the infection was ob- j tamed from victims of that j outbreak. Tee active substance appear-' ed to be a virus because its. inf activity was not lost when; I the liquid containing it vras pass- ed through a filter too fine for i bacteria. 1 But research workers could: neither identify the specific cause of infection cor grow it 'in the laboratory.

Toey strong circumstantial evidence: that what they have seen is a virus and that it does cause the j iltoess. The medical name for the; malady is acute infectious con- j bacterial gastroenteritis. Doc-1 tors often ten their patients sim-; ply that "it's the bug that's! SIMPSONS Sears going Although not considered a dangerous illness, it is common and acutely uncomfor- table. In a 10-year study of a population sample in Gevetend it proved to be one of the most common disease experiences, second only to colds and other respiratory infections. Dr. Albert Z. Kapikian, a member of the research team at the Institute, said it had stfll not proved possible to grow the virus in the laboratory. The at- tein.pt to do that will to important next step in the re- i search. The scientists hope this will be easier now that they ;have been able to isolate and see the virus particles. Grow- ing a virus in the laboratory is a crucial first step in prepar- in a preventive vac- cine. Whether or not a vaccine against this illness win ever prove practical depends on many [actors, including the question of how many different viruses are capable of eausmg SKI EQUIPMENT SHOP EARLY LIMITED QUANTITIES S-100 SKIS 24.99 Reg.
