MAR 13 1987 General News ST. LOUIS POST- DISPATCH Mar. 13, 1987 Increase In Tuberculosis Worries Officials In Area By Roger Signor Of the Post-Dispatch Staff New cases of tuberculosis in St. Louis and St. Louis County climbed to 110 patients last year an 18 percent increase over the 93 cases in 1985, health officials say.

The tubefculosis cases in the city and county last year amounted to one-third of Missouri's total of 338 new tuberculosis patients. The city's total of 64 cases was 10 more than in 1985; the county's 46 cases was a jump of seven. Statewide, the 338 new cases made up an 8.7 percent rise over 1985's total of 311 cases, said Bernard R. Malone, chief of Missouri's bureau of tuberculosis control. More than half of all the state's tuberculosis patients were 65 or older, Malone said.

The figures were made public this week by the bureau. "This increase concerns us because it's an end to a four-year trend in which the state had a decrease in its yearly average of tuberculosis cases," he said. About 85 percent of tuberculosis infections occur in the lungs, Malone said. The other, potentially more lethal infections, occur in the kidneys, bone joints and urinary tract. A 5 percent increase occurred last year in tuberculosis outside the lungs, Malone said.

Dr. William C. Banton II, consultant to the state Department of Health and a lung specialist in St. Louis, said that higher rates of tuberculosis among the elderly in recent years were commonplace. Banton explained, "A tiny pocket of the tuberculosis bacteria can be walled off by calcium deposits and lie dormant in the body for many years.

"When people become elderly, they may suffer from physical or emotional stress, weakening their immune systems and triggering a true clinical case of the disease." Until the 1950s, tuberculosis was one of the leading causes of illness and death. But since the development of anti-tuberculosis drugs in the early 1950s, the disease has been readily cured and is considered relatively rare. But, Banton said, "People and their doctors have become somewhat lax in suspecting tuberculosis when symptoms of the disease occur." These include a chronic cough, fever and night sweats. Today, he said more tuberculosis was being detected among residents of nursing homes and among the increasing numbers of homeless. Malone said that last year, 172 persons 65 or older had contracted group a 5 over percent the 145 increase people in who got the disease in 1985.

In large cities on the east and west coasts, including New York, Miami and San Francisco, tuberculosis is increasing among persons who contract AIDS, acquired immune deficiency syndrome. That is expected to cause much greater nationwide incidence of tuberculosis. "But only three cases of TB have been found among the 230 AIDS victims reported in Missouri since 1981," Malone said. AIDS destroys the body's immune system, making it unable to fight off infections such as tuberculosis. Because of the increase of tuberculosis here and nationwide and its recent link with AIDS special programs will be held the week of April 13 to update health workers about the problem, Malone said.

Workers interested in the talks should call the American Lung Association in St. Louis, he said. Area Doctors Give Blood To Counteract AIDS Fear By Roger Signor Of the Post-Dispatch Staff More than 50 area physicians donated blood Thursday to the Red Cross to show their confidence that the procedure is safe and involves no risk of contracting AIDS. Dr. William V.

Miller, chief executive officer of the Bi-State Chapter of the American Red Cross and a blood bank expert, said the St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society had sponsored the event to encourage more blood donations. Miller said the number of donors had remained the same in recent years. But despite the fact that the number of donors has remained stable, more blood donations are needed when supplies are low usually during holidays and summer months. Miller said AIDS has never been linked to blood donation.

AIDS, or acquired immune deficiency syndrome, destroys the body's immune system, making potentially fatal infections out of diseases that the body normally fights off. But one-third of the people who don't donate blood say they fear AIDS is somehow linked to the procedure, according to polls taken locally, Mil- he said, "I also think there's a fear among many individuals that the results of the screening test if it turned out to be positive will be made known to a list of health officials or employers." But only one Red Cross doctor knows the results of a positive test which he gives to the donor in a personal interview, he said. Dr. William C. Banton, president of the St.

Louis Metropolitan Medical Society, said his group sponsored Thursday's event to "show there's no need for concern that giving blood has anything to do with getting AIDS." Banton said that those who receive donated blood also have little reason for concern. The screening of blood donors has made the risk of contracting AIDS "negligible, if not virtually impossible," he said. Even so, Miller said, "It's prudent for people who choose elective surgery to store a couple of of their own blood before their He said that provides a perfect blood-match and helps replenish the blood supply as well as eliminating "the very remote chance" of getting blood from a donor who had been exposed to the virus that causes AIDS ler said. or hepatitis.
