BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, APRIL 19, 1949 New Drug Stops Cancer in Mice Hope of Controlling Dread Disease Seen In Latest Discovery By Alton L. Blnkcslcc A»soc!»ted Press Science Hciwrtrr DETROIT. April 19. </Pi—A new drug finds and hits an Achilles heel of cancers in mice, stopping the growth of tlic cancers. It seems lo do It by fooling the cancer cells Into thinking the drug is -something they need In order to grow. If they use the new sub- stijute, they don't grow. The drug apparently affects only cancer cells, thus hitting nt n weak spot. For normal healthy cells don't need tills same chemical In their diet, and thus don't take the substitute either. This discovery Is one of the bright new findings about cancer, offering the hope of one way of controlling It. It was announced Sunday to the American Association for Cancer Research by Dr. George W. Ktdder, associate professor of biology at Amherst College. Human Reaction Unknown Tlie drug succeeded in halting or slowing doivn cancer growths In mice, he said. It Is not yd known whether It will work Ir humans. It isn't ready to be tried now. More work must be done on animals. Dr. Kldder said. Anrt maybe a better drug can be lomid through the same kind of work that led to this one. The drug Is named Guanazolo. It Is just slightly different from another chemical, guanjiie, that the cancer Bells In mice apparently need lo grow and multiply. If they get the guanazolo, their growth apparently Is blocked. Dr. Kldder Injected the drug Into mice suffering from three kinds of cancer. Each time the cancers stopped growing while the drug was being given. They started growing again when the Injections were • stopped. The same kind of cancers in other mice, not treated by the drug, kept growing all the time. The Doughter Born to Young Woman After She Was Shot Through Head DALLAS, April 19-M'J—A 19-» year-old mother who gave birth to a child after she had been shot, through the head was In "excellent" condition at a Dallas hospital yesterday. Mrs. Addle Hudson has every chance of recovering, her physician said. "I'll be very surprised if she doesn't make it—but she may be blind." Mrs. Hudson was shot Friday. On Sunday she gave birth, a month prematurely, to a 4-pound daughter, City policeman J. W. Gnllaher yesterday recounted the circumstances of the shooting: "Mrs. Hudson and her husband lived In a room at the home of a elatlve. I was called there Friday, found Mrs. Hudson on a bed. shot hrough the head. A .22 rifle was nearby," The physician considered It ai extremely rare case. Rushed to the lospltal, Mrs. Hudson never lost consciousness. Bullet Enters Brain The bullet." »a!d the doctor, •went in to the right of the vlghl eye, traveled through the brain aru emerged In front ol the left enr The path of the bullet was through the frontal lobe of the brain, a mrt which regulates some of the hought processes. I am afraid that it must have struck the optic nerve for at the moment Mrs. Hudson Is completely blind." The worrmn't condition was first considered grave. The hosplta t once began preparations to perform an emergency cacstircan sec lion operation to save Ihe baby li event of her death. But on Sunday, Mrs. Hudson be Ban having labor pains. And In i few hours, the child was delivered normally. The baby wns placed h an Incubator. Her condition wa considered fair. ?oyo// Hints e May Resign Cabinet Post WASHINGTON.
