PRODUCE MORE GIRLS LONDON (AP) Dr. John Belts is trying to find out why deep sea divers apparently have an unusual tendency to produce daughters. As chairman of the i medical committee of the Brit- ish Subaqua Ctab, Bells discov- jerecl that 10 of 11 children born I to Royal Navy divers were fe- male s. Statistically, there should have been a slight pre- pomiuaitcc of boys, he said Ssl- iit an ing cystic fibrosis within a few hours of birth. Current testing procedure is expensive and cumbersome, in- volving collection of sweat from suspected sufferers and labora- tory analysis. Tilts probably remain the final determinant in a diag- nosis of cystic fibrosis. The new test's value may te that it of- fers a chance that a mass screening of all live birihs may be feasible to pick out potenlial cases. Fingernail parings from pa- tients arc the materials tested.

Scientists at Texas A and M University and Baylor College of Medicine have provided evi- dence that persons with cystic fibrosis have greater than 50 parts per billion of copper in fingernail parings. Dr. Evans irradiated 40 nail each from 20 pa- r' whom had cystic fibrosis. The characteristic high copper contort revealed by activation analysis in 16 of the 20 cvst'c parings. The four samples that eluded detection turned out to be toe- nail parihgs rather than finger- nail so Dr. Evans regards the small-scale trial as indicating the possibility of 100 per cent accuracy. He and Dr. Park now are de- signing a mass screening test program which they hope to bunch over a large part of east- ern Ontario if they can get re- search funds from the cystic fi- brosis foundation or other grants agency. About one person in 20 carries the genetic fault that results in cystic fibrosis in the next gencr- aiion. Mating of two such per- sons increases chances of the disease appearing to one in four. Key to control of Ihe disease would he identification of car- riers before they mate.
