Thurs., April 12,1173 OKKELKY (Colo.) TRIBUNE 17 to detect cancer /susceptibility k SALT LAKE CITY (AP) The director of the Intermountain Cancer Institute said today his organization is developing a Genetic Cell Susceptibility Test which may determine "...a person's realitiye risk to develop cancer..." \ Dr. Debdas Mukerjee, speak- V ing to the 2nd International H Symposium on Cancer Detec- · tipn and Prevention meeting in ^'.Bologna, Italy, said he and oth- :,\ m e'r scientists have spent years V developing the test which may i t l | indicate an individual's genetic "" " risk to cancer. His prepared remarks were released in a statemenl today by the cancer institute. "Ah individual will be able to go to'his or her physician and have a small skin biopsy taken," Mukerjee said. "Cells grown from this skin biopsy, following tissue culture methods, are then treated with a virus, known as SV40, which can transform human cells in cluture. By estimating the frequency of the transformation of Ihese cells, a person's relative risk to develop cancer due to genetic cell susceptibilily is determined." The scientist said thai in the future, new-born infants can take the test without any mark or scar, by taking Ihe biopsy from the amnion, or, in the case of males, from the circumcision. He said the biopsy would be less than one-quarter inch square. He said the lest "will be available to physicians, clinics, hospitals and laboratories around (he world." The test would enable parents of infanls, and adults shown to be genetically predisposed for Ihe development of cancer, ..."to avoid as many carcinogens (cancer producing agents) as possible, such as excessive sunlight, exposure lo asbestos, smoking, living in highly polluted cities, X-rays, certain j chemicls, etc.," Mukerjee said. Knowing one's risk for Ihe 'f development of cancer is '·: "much higher than Ihe average 'could be extremely helpful in early detection because of closer surveillance," he added. He said thai if such a lest could be given to mass segments of Ihe population, it could be a milestone in Ihe battle for control of cancer through advancing Ihe progress of early detection. "Would the use of such a lest lead to accurate prediction of one's inborn risk lo develop- vment of cancer?" Mukerjee *X'asked the delegates. He said | *., lhat if consistenl answers are *', available, (he lechnique could ' have application in a cancer detection program by "idenli- fying individuals who are genetically in high cancer risk groups." He said a number of labs in :. the U.S. and Europe are actively exploring ramifications of Ihe Iransformalion frequency - · phenomenon among high risk ,v populations. *" N.M. land set ;- for tax deed sale SANTA FE, N.M.
