A-12 THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER Sunday, September 15, 1991 Babies good transplant candidates, but tiny organs scarce EALTHSCIENCE be saved. But if asked, manv parents would be willing THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PITTSBURGH Babies are some of the best candidates for heart transplants because their immature immune systems accept organs more easily, but there aren't enough tiny hearts coming from donors, a surgeon says. Dr. Leonard Bailey said physicians may be timid about suggesting organ removal to grieving parents of brain-dead infants whose hearts and other organs could to approve donation of their child's organs, he said. Bailey, director of heart-lung surgery at Loma Linda University Medical Center near Los Angeles, performed the world's first successful heart transplant on an infant at Loma Linda in 1985. "There's a significant reward in knowing that one or two other babies may be doing well because of their baby," Bailey said. Proposal: Prevent child abuse Visiting new parents is most effective, says panel THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DENVER A national blue ribbon panel warned Saturday that child abuse threatens to corrode the nation's social fabric and existing programs appear powerless to stop it. The U.S. Advisory Board on Child Abuse and Neglect proposed that health care workers visit new parents in their homes to offer advice, discuss health care and make sure the parents know how to care for a child. The program would be voluntary and cross all income lines, it said. "No other problem may equal its power to cause or exacerbate a with the start of the Ninth National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect in Denver. The report was to be discussed at a hearing today in Denver and was planned by the House Select Committee on Children, Youth and Families chaired by Rep. Patricia Schroeder,' D-Colo. The entire report, called "Creating Caring Communities: Blueprint for an Effective Federal Policy on Child Abuse and Neglect," will be released to the public on Oct. 14. The 15-member board said in its recommendations that "no other single intervention has the promise that home visitation has." range of social ills," the panel wrote in its second annual report to Secretary of Health and Human Services Louis Sullivan. A summary released Saturday said the current system of response to child abuse and neglect by state and county governments rather than prevention is "overwhelmed and on the verge of collapse." "Such negligence threatens the integrity of a nation that shares a sense of community, that regards individuals as worthy of respect, that reveres family life, and that is competent in economic competition," the board said.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 10:00 am to 6:00 pm In Women's Shoes Mm Research on AIDS falsified Scientist Gallo, aide investigated CHICAGO TRIBUNE WASHINGTON Dr. Robert C. Gallo's landmark 1984 article reporting the isolation of the AIDS virus is riddled with fabrication, falsification, misleading statements and errors, an 18-month investigation of Gallo's research has concluded. Responsibility for the fraudulent portions of the article, which contributed substantially to Gallo's status as a scientific superstar, was attributed by investigators to Dr. Mikulas Popovic, a Czechoslovak refugee who was then Gallo's chief virologist. But the investigators said Gallo had "created and fostered" an atmosphere in his laboratory that gave rise to the fraud and had "acquiesced in Dr. Popovic's wrongdoing." Censure advised A preliminary, 200-page report on the Gallo case by the National Institutes of Health concludes that Popovic, but not Gallo, was guilty of scientific misconduct. However, the report states that "even though Dr. Gallo's actions do not meet the formal definition of scientific misconduct, they warrant significant censure." In an unexpected revelation, investigators discovered that Gallo deleted from the manuscript of the article an acknowledgment that Popovic had succeeded in growing an AIDS virus sample sent to him by French researchers. The deletion, made over Popovic's protests, laid the groundwork for a bitter international dispute YOUR CHOICE: 999 THREE FULL-LENGTH FURS AT ONE TERRIFIC PRICE!
