Shop Eaton's Wednesday to p.m. Buy Line 328-881 1 Hardware, Lower Floor Nerve diseases may be treated by radio waves By JEFF CARRUTHERS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA A long-sought- after treatment for such debilitating diseases of the central nervous system as multiple schlerosis may be one major step closer to reality today as a result of Canadian research on the medical applications of mi- crowaves. Three scientists with the National Research Council here and Queen's University in Kingston have discovered that very low levels of microwave radio radiation stimulates the production of myelin along nerves when the radiation is applied to exposed leg nerves in rats. Myelin is the material which coats important axial nerve fibres in the body, in- cluding the spinal column and the brain. More important, it is the de- struction of myelin that is most characteristic of debilitating diseases such as multiple schlerosis and encephalomy elitism, which indidiously dull mental func- tions and important motor responses. The hope is that elec- tromagnetic radiation could be applied to nerves affected by diseases like multiple schlerosis. first to stop myelin destruction by artificially stimulating production of the nerve fibre sheathing material, and then perhaps to repair damaged nerves in long-time victims of such dis- eases But the hope, it should be stressed, is a long way from reality, since the experiments have only been done on rats and since the scientists don't really know what is happening, let alone what is causing the phenomenon. At present, there's no known successful treatment for such diseases And while some patients ex- perience sporadic remissions or even complete recovery from such diseases, many face a lifetime of having their nervous system and functions slowly deteriorate with time. Dr. Cesar Romero-Sierra, one of the scientists now with the department of anatomy at Queen's University, emphasizes that the research is preliminary and involves only animals. But he suggested in a recent interview that the myehna- tionstimulation technique also could be useful in preventing the deterioration of nerves after severe trauma or cuts This in turn could increase the chances of surgeons being able to surgically re-connect severed nerves in limbs, for example, which have been ac- cidentally amputated. The scientists admit they don't yet know how the appli- cation of a weak radio field af- fects the make-up of nerves. Dr. Romero-Sierra suggests that the component parts of nerves may somehow depend on electromagnetic signals to sense and maintain their proper orientation and relationship with one another. In the case of myelin-stimu- lation, the weak field may trigger some electronic gate and allow production of myelin. In the case of preventing nerve deterioration, the weak electromagnetic field may keep the gial cells and neurons in their proper relationship and prevent the nerves from falling apart. Dr. Allan Tanner, head of the control systems laboratory at NRC, said the myelin phenomenon only oc- curs at certain frequencies of microwave radiation and at very low field intensities. The low intensities are at- tained by holding the radio- frequency generator probe at a distance from the nerve be- ing treated. When the probe is held closer, that is when the field increases, the process actual- ly reverses. Myelin is no longer produced and in some cases is even destroyed. And collagen, a tough fibrous material, is stimulated in- stead. But even this process seems to promise important medical applications. By increasing collagen, the scientists have discovered they can dramatically speed up wound healing, especially when they apply the chemical histamine to the wound. The most recent studies suggest that wound healing on skin in humans could be reduced from about five days average to perhaps five hours, by using electromagnetic radiation in combination with a number of histamine-like compounds And "glueing" of the wound initially can be cut from hours to seconds. Chronologically, the scien- tists started their research with microwave in trying to use the high-frequency radio waves to scare birds away from airports and thereby reduce the number of bird- plane crashes around air- ports. They had observed that birds automatically veered away from radar beams. They suspected the microwaves somehow interfered with the nervous system of the birds. Subsequent experimenta- tion revealed that at certain frequencies, microwave signals could actually cause birds to fall out of the air. In trying to determine the cause of the phonemenon, they then stumbled on the wound-healing acceleration process. And from there, they deter- mined that the process could be reversed under certain cir- cumstances to stimulate myelin production around nerve fibres. Dr. Romero-Sierra is in Warsaw, Poland this week presenting the latest findings of the microwave research to an international symposium on the biologic effects of microwave radiation. In an interview before he left for Poland, Dr. Romero- Sierra said he is concerned about possible long-term effects from such radio wave treatment. He plans to start chronic studies on rats, to make sure, for example, that the radiation doesn't produce cancer The third scientist involved in the research is Susan Halter, now with the depart- ment of pathology at Queen's University.
