Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, March 24, 1971 - THS LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 35 Scientific team seeks answers Oceans still largely unexplored storehouse of potent new medicines By ALTON BLAKESLEE HONOLULU, Hawaii (AP) - Dr. Frank L. Tabrah is a physician, and a pharmacologist, and a lithe athlete who can make free dives SO feet down, and who frequently does so in pursuit of a conviction that the oceans are a yet largely unexplored storehouse of potent new medicines. It is a pursuit also to investigate carefully the real worth of folklore medicines of Polynesia and other areas of the Pacific Ocean for such purposes as fighting cancer, alleviating pain, and practising birth control. Now some payoffs loom from research by the scientific team, of which Dr. Tabrah is a member, at the University of Hawaii school of medicine. From the tentacles of sea worms, they have extracted a material that halts the grown of cancer cells in mice 60 to 100 per cent of the time. The clue to look for it came from an elderly Hawaiian woman who remembered that cancer patients often improved for a time if they drank a liquid made from cooked tentacles daily for several weeks. In a sea anemone, they since have found a much more powerful anti-cancer drug that com- pletely cures 65 per cent of mice given experimental cancer and markedly delays the onset of cancer in the rest of the mice. MANY PROSPECTS They have early glimmerings of other drugs that might reduce blood pressure, act as tranquillizers-or psychic ener-gizers, or produce other benefits. This search of the sea is the program of the Pacific Biomedical Research Centre at the University of Hawaii. In a recent interview, Dr. Tabrah listed some of the native medicines the team has investigated: -Kava, the root of a shrub, which when chewed or prepared as a beverage "can knock you cold." Something in it might be useful as tranquillizer. -N'oni, juice from a fruit. The juice acts to lower high blood pressure. -Juices from some green pineapples and a fern were native medicines to induce abortion, and were investigated to determine how effective they may be for the purpose or for birth control. -Puakala, a kind of poppy plant, was used to alleviate toothache, or pain during tattooing, when its leaves were smoked or eaten. The centre's program calls on skills of pharmacologists, chemists, botanists, ethnobctanists and other specialists. So far they have collected and are examining more than 1,500 plants, several hundred fungi and a variety of other micro-organisms from the sea.
