Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 _ THI LETHERIDGE HERALD Wtdneiday, May 13, 1970- Cancer Cure Found TAIPEI, Formosa (AP) A poisonous substance extracted from castor oil beans has proved to be an effective cure for a form of cancer in mice, two doctors at Taiwan Univer- sity Hospital announced Tues- day. Reports on their research are scheduled to appear in forth- coming issues of British and United States medical journals, they said. The doctors, Tung Ta-cheng, dean of the biochemical re- search institute of Taiwan Uni- versity, and research associate Lin Yung-Yao said they ex- tracted a substance known as ricin from the beans, and found it to be completely effective in treating a form of tumors in mice if applied within five days after the mice began to show symptoms. Lin said unknown components of ricin inhibit the growth of the cancerous cells.

Observe that if East has the king of that card is play of the ace and another trump may prove fatal if East holds the third heart and can put his; partner in with the king of spades for the ruff. In order to achieve tha maximum protection, proper technique calls for the de- clarer to sever his opponent's line of communications. This can be accomplished by per- mitting East to hold the lead with the queen 'of spades at trick two.

BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. It has been aptly said that the wonder is not that we get dck but that, in spite of a constant bombardment by disease germs, we stay well at all. This feat is accomplished through a variety of protect i v e mechanisms. Germs in the air that find their way into your eyes or mouth are usually killed by a power- ful anitseptic called lysozyme in our tears and saliva. Those germs that are swal- lowed without being killed by your saliva are met in your stomach by even stronger anti- septics. Few, if any, are likely to reach your duodenum, just beyond the outlet of your stom- ach. When you suffer a break in your skin the protective mech- anism is a little more complex. In the resulting inflammation, chemicals are mobilized at the scene which allow the white blood cells to escape from your capillaries. In an amebalike process, these leukocytes extend their walls around Individual in- New Car Safely Device Delayed DETROIT (AP) Edward M.

The director of the Institute of Experimental Medicine aro Surgery at the University o Montreal explained that ster oids were kinds of hydrocarbon which include male and femal hormones secreted by interna glands. Dr. Selye and associates ca. the new steroids "catatoxics' because they cause the destruc tion of toxic substances without attacking disease causing or- ganisms as antibiotic drugs do. He said there are two kinds of defensive steroids. "The first group makes us tol- erate toxins like that from a bee sting. You might call them tis- sue tranquilizers. An example would be cortisone used in the treatment of rheumatism. "The new group of steroids have been shown to attack the source of the trouble the stimulating the liver to produce enzymes which dig- est and destroy the poisons in- vading the body." In animal experiments, insti- tute researchers have found that if a rat is first treated with a new steroid he can be given normally lethal doses of nicotine and remain "perfectly all right." The new steroids are not toxic in themselves. Another advan- tage is that they act a little like broad spectrum antibiotics in the sense that one catatoxic may digest many toxins. Some destroy many pesticides. Dr. Selye said the speed with which these findings can be ap- plied to man depends on re- search financing.'.
