More than a third of women slain in this country die at the hands of husbands or boyfriends, and domestic violence is the single largest cause of injury to women in the United States more common than automobile accidents, muggings and rapes combined, the surgeon general noted. The AMA is developing instructions to help doctors recognize abuse, question patients in a caring way and refer them to shelters, legal aid, social support and psychiatric services. Dr. Carole Warshaw, a psychiatrist, internist, and emergency room physician, is helping the AMA develop its physician instructions. The AMA guidelines are to be unveiled in, January. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO Domestic violence is a public health menace, the U.S. surgeon general said Wednesday as she joined the nation's largest organization of doctors in launching a physicians' campaign against the problem. "The home is actually a more dangerous place for American women than the city streets," Dr. Antonia Novello said at a news conference held by the American Medical Association in an emergency room. Dr. Robert E. McAfee, an AMA vice chairman, said the 280,000-plus-member group is mailing letters to all 570,000 U.S. physicians to encourage them to join the Physicians Campaign Against Family Violence.

He is working on a "superglue" he hopes will be so strong it could be used to replace rivets on airplanes. De Gennes' discovery that there is order in the way molecules behave in materials such as liquid crystals could help in making new products such as flat television screens. The academy said Ernst's achievement lay in radically improving the resolution and precision of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The measurements provide information about how molecules are structured and how they interact. The better the measurements, the more useful information chemists have for research and making new drugs. It was the first time since 1971 that an American didn't win the physics or chemistry prize. Molecular work earns Nobel prizes THE ASSOCIATED PRESS STOCKHOLM, Sweden Nobel prizes were awarded Wednesday to a Swiss chemist who improved the tool that measures molecules and a French physicist who discovered patterns in molecular behavior. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said Richard Ernst won the chemistry prize for his improvements in nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. "With classical methods it could take years to determine molecular structures. . . . Now it can take hours or days," said Salo Gronow-itz, chairman of the awards committee. Pierre-Gilles de Gennes, who has been called the "Isaac Newton of our time," won the physics prize for finding general rules for the behavior of molecules where scientists thought there was only disorder. He has mathematically described molecular changes in magnets, superconductors, polymer solutions and liquid crystals. The laureates are to receive their $1 million prizes' Dec. 10. "I find that the crowning moment of our life is not in compensation. Most of all, it's in children," said de Gennes, a father of seven. "All of my research, however ITRAUSS ACROSS FROM FOUNTAIN SQ.

SAVE Stomach cancer tie is found THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BOSTON A form of bacteria already linked with ulcers also appears to help cause about 60 of all stomach cancer, one of the world's leading cancer killers, two studies conclude. The new works provide the strongest evidence yet that an extremely common microbe is a major factor behind this malignancy. However, researchers disagreed over whether everyone with this infection perhaps 20 of the population in the United States should be treated with antibiotics to kill the germs, even if they suffer no outward symptoms from them. Stomach cancer has declined steadily during the past 60 years in developed countries and now takes about 13,000 lives annually in the United States. However, in much of Asia and Latin America, it is very common. The link between the microbe helicobacter pylori and stomach cancer has been suspected for several years. Besides ulcers, the germ is known to cause gastritis, an inflammation of the stomach lining, and chronic inflammation can raise the risk of cancer. The studies were directed by Drs. Julie Parsonnet of Stanford University and Abraham Nomura of Kuakini Medical Center in Honolulu.

"Infection alone almost certainly is not enough to cause cancer," said Parsonnet. "There must be other co-factors, such as diet, genetics or toxins.
