New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 21, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas CA Naw Braunfels HerakJ-Zttfungf Wednesday, September 21,19C3 'Bubble bo/ celebrates 12th birthday HOUSTON (AP) — A boy who has never been touched by a bare human hand or kissed by his mother celebrates his 13th birthday today In the germfree bubble where he has spent Ms entire life. David, whose last name has been kept secret, was born into a sterile environment and placed immediately in a plastic home after doctors determined he suffered from severe wwwMwyj immune dnftoUjncy The condition, discovered by doctors while David was in his mother's womb, involves the lack of two types of white Mood cells : T-cells, which ward off infection, and Dwells, which produce antibodies against Officials saki he is the oldest survivor of the untreated disease. David will be served a birthday cake at a private party, said Susannah Moore Griffin, spokeswoman for the Baylor College of Medicine, which directs his care. He is a member of die Roman Catholic Church and will receive Communion with consecrated and irradiated wafers, she said. "He's just like any other 12-year-old boy," Mi. Griffin said. "He seems happy. He seems to accept Ms life." David's family installed a video cassette recorder in their home last year and the boy has been able to see movies. He also is able to play an electronic game and has started to play a miniature electronic piano. He was treated to a special showing of "Return of the Jedi" at a local theater during the year and for Ms 12th birthday is expecting "Jedi" toys as gifts. |(rs. Griffin said be also is to receive video game cartridges, electronic toys and adventure books. Doctors planned after David's birth to transplant bone marrow from Ms sister, but the plan was abandoned when they found the blood types were not compatible. Bone marrow produces lymphocytes. Since then, except for constant protection from the dirty outside world, David has received no treatment for his condition. David spends most of Ms time in a four-compartment Isolator that takes most of Ms family's living and dining rooms. The isolator is supplied with constantly filtered air that removes germs. He spends two weeks a year, one each in June and December, at the Texas Children's Hospital in Houston. Two rooms are reserved for him at the hospital year around. At home during the school year, David spends 2 Vt hours each morning and afternoon participating by a telephone hookup in a regular sixth-grade class at a nearby school. A tatar teachee him at home for another two hours daily. Tests have shown David to have a superior IQ and the scholastic abilities of an eighth-grader. The family takes David on outings through the use of a portable isolator wMchfitsinavan. AH items given to David are passed through an airlock in Ms bubble. Ethylene oxide gas is used to sterilise books, food containers, clothing and bedding. His food is also germ-free. A peracetic add solution is used to sterilise plastic and glass items. David takes care of the inside of his bubble, passing out clothing, bedding and wastes for disposal. Dr. William Shearer, David's physician, said a bone marrow transplant appears to be the only treatment possible for the boy. "The transplantation of bone marrow to David hasn't been feasible because of the lack of a matching donor," said Shearer. Unmatched bone marrow, he said, would cause a fatal condition called "graft versus host disease" in which the marrow rejects the recipient Semi-annual tests on David show that the boy has come in contact with some germs. Swabs of Ms body areas have found pseudomonas, a common Inman mouth bacteria.

Certain strains produce common warts on Ae skin; ethers cause genital warts.
