Serious Side Effects Cool interest in Psoriasis Drug By HARRY NELSON The Los Angeles Times LOS ANGELES - Enthusiasm for a drug that does wonders for many persons with psoriasis is cooling fast because of reports of serious side effects, a University of California at Los Angeles dermatologist said this week. The drug, Metholrexale, has through the years become one of the principal treatments for the skin disease. But increasing reports that the drug can make patients susceptible to infections, cause gaslro'ntestinal ulcerations an liver damage and produce othe serious effects are making doc tors much more cautious in it use, said Dr. Ronald M. Reisner Dr. Reisner said melhotrexat was used originally only on ver; severe cases. "However, there is such a cry ing need for a good treatmen for psoriasis that the dru: gradually came lo be used mor widely," he said. He said metholrexate still i useful in specially selects cses provided the patient, i waiched very carefully for sign of side effects. Methotrexate was developei to treat cancer and still is wide ly used for that purpose. Although psoriasis is no malignant, it is similar to can cer in that it is characterize! by the very rapid replication o cells. In psoriasis the epidermis o outer layer of skin produce cells si a rate about seven time faster than normal. This causes the characteristic scaly patches of skin on a red base. Methotrexate slows the rate of epidermis cell production. Un^ fortunately, the drug also af- fecls other organs which nor- jmally grow at a high rate. Examples are bone marrow jand the lining of the intestines.

They plunged boldly into a "no-bra" bikini looi which strips away padding wires and camouflage to leave "all you shining through" the bikini top. On the defense were conserva tives--DeWeese, Sirena, Eliza beth Stewart and Sandcastle-- who built bras into tunics draped their one-piece suits am even kept the demure boys shorts. Viewing her competitors swinging, sexy braless bikin tops, designer Elizabeth Stewar said, "It's my feeling that if it's that great show it. But hov many people do you know tha it's that great?" She added soft bras to al suits but made innovations in bi kini bottoms which were draped, scarf-wrapped or lied a the sides for a diaper look.

"Advertising, in many he worte, "is a con too ... it is not surprising then that politicians and advertising men should have discovered one another. "And, once they recognized that the citizen did not so much vote for a candidate as make a psychological purchase of him, it is not surprising that they began to work together." At the end of the campaign, a study committee of the Century Fund con eluded that 70 per cent of political advertising on television was in "spot" announcements. Tliis is a polite term for a brief commercial that consists of little more than a slogan, plus pic- lures of a candidate and his :ame.

Screwworni Plague May Hit New Low By DON KENDALL WASHINGTON (AP) - The Agriculture Department says screwworm infestations of livestock in southwestern stales may hit a record low this year if fall outbreaks can be held down. The Agricultural Research Service said only 211 confirmed screwworm cases wore reported during the first nine months of Uiis year, compared with 4,526 during January-September 1968. Nearly 10,000 cases were reported last year, the worst out- break since 1962 when the government's screwworm cradica- 1 lion program began. Officials had feared another year of widespread screwworm infestations after funds for the control program were depleted in the 1968 siege. But more money was made available and full production of sterile screwworm flies began again in March. Sterile flies male wilh females which then are unable to produce fertilized eggs, which are laid in open wounds of livestock. The ARS said also that ranchers in the area--Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California- had responded well by taking preventive measures against of livestock infestation.
