Open Doily o in in 6 p.m.. 9 n.m lo t p ni., UltlAN' SUUJVAN FKA'MINGHAM, Mass. (API l-'or years, more than S.OOO poople in this Boston suburb: I have boon willing subjects in a heart ( research project. Tbe project has been remark- ably .successful, producing most of what is known about ihe causes and prevention of heart disease, North America's lead-j ing killer. Hut as of July I, (lie study will tie cut slxirply. at least j partly for reasons of economy, in a controversial decision by United States govenimenf.. In the 20 years (hat Fram- iugham Heart Study lias been under way, a clearer and clearer portniit has gradually emerged of the most likely can- i didate for a heart attack: He is a flabby, middle-aged male given to j much to eat, tea many ciga- j rettes. too little exercise, a j tendency to diabetes. He may i feel perfectly well, but he may j already have had a silent heart i attack, be unaware of if, and he i may just be going merrily along, unaware of Impending disaster. Given these factors that pre- f dispose a person to a heart at- j tack, a physician can spot the j likely candidates ahead of time I and warn them to change their living habits. ENROLLED When tlie project began in this small community, men and women between 30 and 62 were enrolled, all volunteers. Since then, nearly each one has been given an extensive physi- cal examination every two years. liowever, tile research j staff is being reduced, elimmat- ing the biennial physical exanri- i nations, in line a decision made at the National Institutes of Health, an arm of tlie health, education and welfare depart- ment. Effective July 1, the staff at the Framingham field station will be cut to about five from about 20. "Colossal said Dr. William B. Kaiuiel, director of j the lieart study. "1 think it's a I tremendous waste of a potential national resource that could be exploited." With about SCO deaths in the original population so far. about are still alive. Of the total, only about two per cent have dropped out for various reasons. Tlwse remaining in the study are between 50 and 80 years.old and Kannel maintains fhev present a unique opportunity U> learn about illness in old age. "I. think it's a said j Elinor Calver, a 62-year-old Framingham resident, after her recent biennial physical exami- nation. "They've done such a marvellous job, learning so many ne'.v tilings." HUSBAND DIED I Mrs. Calver's husband, John, j i a trial lawyer, was in die pro- i j gram until he died of heart dis-! ease two years ago. "It was a j I progressive thing." she said. "Now so many of his friends have died, About four last year, in their late 50s, early Mrs. Calver added a side ben- efit of the physical examina- tions: Tbe detection of unsus- pected disease. "They discov- ered in time that I had cancer. That's one reason it's dear to me, but that, doesn't have any- thing to do with continuing tlK project." Will! the Framingham popula- tion moving into advanced years, Kaimel said, there is an opportunity to learn not only more about heart disease and stroke, but such things as senile mental deterioration, emphy- sema, cataracts, deafness. To do this kind of research correctly, he said, the work should start early, before the onset of the illnesses, as with his Framingham group. "We already have their living habits and he added. "We can see if there is any re- lation to intellectual function. What's different about the per- son who ends up mentally dete- j riorating? We're not going i to find any tincture of youth, but we have to find out how to keep people hale and hearty and vigorous up into old age, until j they fall over dead. "We should literally study this i group to death." LACK OF INTEHEST Kannel attributed the cut in i part to political-economic i dimate. but that's not the whole reason."
