Newly cloned protein could treat cancers By The Journal's Wire Services Scientists have cloned a protein that helps blood vessels grow — and also could be used to shut off the blood supply to cancerous tumors. Harvard Medical School researchers have isolated, purified and cloned a protein called angiogenin, which an article in the February issue of Science Digest said stimulates the growth of the body's blood vessel network. Cancers need new blood vessels in order to grow. If researchers learn how angiogenin works, it may become possible to reverse its function and block blood vessel formation. It could be used as an antigen to make antibodies that bind to the protein, deforming it and making it useless. "We'll use the antibodies to target angiogenin," said James Riordan, one of the Harvard researchers. "They'll act as inhibitors to shut off or starve the blood supply of tumor cells." Angiogenin may be used in other ways as well — to facilitate the healing of wounds and to increase the blood supply to organs such as the heart. Angiogenin inhibitors also could help in the treatment of circulatory problems associated with diabetes and some skin disorders. It took more than 10 years and $23 million to isolate and produce the angiogenin molecule.

Dear Readers: The six major American cigarette companies spend $1.5 billion annually to promote their products. Some 320,000 Americans will die prematurely this year of diseases linked with smoking. That's as many Americans as have been killed in all the wars fought in this century. If you didn't join the Great American Smokeout on Nov. 21, you can start next Monday: Here are some tips to help you quit the filthy habit. Quit Tips For Smokeout Day From the American Cancer Society Wet down all cigarettes in the house and throw them in the trash can. Clean out all ashtrays in your home and office and store them. Discard matches; hide lighters, or give them away. When the urge to smoke hits, take a deep breath. Hold it a second, then release it very, very slowly. Taking deep rhythmic breaths is similar to smoking, only you'll inhale clean air, not poisonous gases. Exercise to help relieve tension. Climb stairs rather than take the elevator, park the car a block or two from your destination and walk the rest of the way. At home, practice touching your toes, jog in place, do jumping jacks. When tempted to reach for a cigarette, think of a negative image about smoking. Select your worst memory connected with the habit — the time you burned a hole in your Ann Landers NEWS AMERICA !HOPS/tIJJVA'SFASlIIOJVSTOIlES...PA«IS*PAIIISPil/S< PARIS A PLUS Mid State Mall JANUARY CLEARANCE Santa Fe & Iron SALE...

Imagine this experience for 15 seconds whenever the urge occurs. Reward yourself with oral substitutes in the same -way you may have used cigarettes. Good examples: chewing sugarless gun, lemon drops, pumpkin or sunflower seeds, apple slices, carrot sticks, un- buttered popcorn or stick cinnamon. Eat three or more small meals a day. This maintains constant blood sugar levels, and helps fight the urge to smbke. Avoid sugar-laden foods and spicy items that can trigger a desire for cigarettes. Scramble your day and change habits connected with smoking. Drive a different route to work; eat lunch in a new place; leave the "scene of the urge." At home, avoid your "smoking chair" after dinner, reach for gum rather than a cigarette when answering the phone. Cleanse your body of nicotine. Drink liquids — lots of them. Water (6-8 glasses a day), herbal teas, fruit juices and caffeine-free soft drinks are recommended. Pass up coffee, caffeinated soft drinks and alcohol as they can increase your urge to smoke. Keep your hands and mind busy. Work on a crossword puzzle, knit a sweater, balance your checkbook, fix something around the house, shampoo the dog, clean out the closets. Respond to those unanswered letters on your desk. Dear Ann Landers: Is the wife really the last one to know? I have often wondered about this. At the moment, two close friends are beine cheated on openly and both appear to be totally oblivious to what is apparent to others. What say you, Ann? — White Plains Dear W.P.: Often the wife knows but she wants to keep her marriage intact. Ignoring the telltale signs is her way of doing it.

"Divorce has colored our attitude toward marriage," notes the author, Art Carey.
