The therapy is already being tested on humans. A mutated version of aden- ovirus, one of a number of viruses that cause the common cold, was shown in mouse studies to attack and kill human cancer cells that lack a gene called P53. About half of all human cancers have a defective or missing P53 gene. "The mutated virus takes over and turns -the (cancer) cell into a factory to make more virus," said Frank McCormick, a researcher in Richmond, Calif. "After a day or two, the cell is killed and it releases a whole bunch of new virus, which then infect neighboring cancer cells." About 60 percent of human tumors grown in laboratory mice melted away after being injected with the mutated adenovirus, said McCormick, lead author of a study to be published today in the jour- T SOCIAL SECURITY nal Science. Dr. Bert Vogelstein, a Johns Hopkins University researcher who first discovered that an altered or missing P53 gene can lead to cancer, called the report exciting "because it exploits an alteration that is present in many different cancers." A number of gene mutations linked to cancer have been discovered in recent years, but finding •ways to use the genetic flaws to fight cancer "has been elusive and very difficult," Vogelstein noted. Yet, the altered virus' true cancer-fighting ability won't be known until human trials are done, Vogelstein noted. A normal P53 gene suppresses cancer by detecting abnormal DNA when a cell is dividing. If the DNA is abnormal, P53 either stops the division or kills the cell. That also can block the reproduction of viruses within the cell. Many types of human cancers have defective or missing P53 and this allows the tumor cells to survive and proliferate wildly. A normal adenovirus causes mild upper respiratory infections by invading a cell and making a protein that inactivates P53. That enables the virus to take over the cell, turn it into a virus-making factory and eventually kill the cell, releasing into the blood stream the new viral particles.

Group against privatizing Social Security system By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — A coalition of consumer activists, old and young people and ' labor officials launched a preemptive strike Thursday at upcoming proposals to privatize the giant Social Security system. "Privatization is a radical idea intended to undermine the system and benefit Wall Street," said Roger Hickey, co-founder of the three-month-old ^Campaign for America's Future. A government .advisory coun- T MEDICARE Broken bones cost Medicare $4.2 billion By The Associated Press ATLANTA — Senior citizens who broke their hips and other bones cost Medicare $4.2 billion in 1992, or 3 percent of the program's total cost, and the burden is expected ,to grow as the'baffy ! tiobri^ generauoTnTreaches old age. "As the population ages, the proportion of people at risk for fractures because of thinning bones will increase," Catherine Hennesey, an epidemiologist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Thursday. Hip fractures alone cost Medicare $2.9 billion in 1992, the CDC said. In 1990, there were 32 million people in America age 65 and older. Currently, people 65 and older suffer about 850,000 broken bones a year. cil, working outside the political spotlight, is expected tp produce a report soon after the election that will put forward three rival proposals to keep the Social Security system solvent after the year 2030. All rely to some extent on privatizing at least" part of the $400 bil-' lion collected each year. Supporters of privatization argue that putting some of Social Security's money into the stock market would lead to greater earnings, and thus less need to cut benefits or raise the retirement age. ^ e pumpkin patch Trinity United Methodist Church> 901 East Neal Salina, KS 825-5270 '• October 17th - 31st, 1996' 10 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. (Monday-Saturday) '; Noon - 8:00 p.m. (Sunday) Come buy your pumpkins and help support the youth of J Trinity.
