HE--Sept. 10, 1972 Sunday Gazette-Mail Ch«rl«ton, Wtst Virginia Brown-Skiles Nuptial "If you are a born worrier, you were born at the right time," a cynic might say in speaking of modern times. But whatever anyone may think of the 70's, the new decade has brought us some good news on the health front, reports the Health Insurance Institute. There were a number of significant advances in medicine reported in 1971 and early '72 which may well turn back some of mankind's most dreaded 1 diseases in the not- too-distant future. Also recently cited by the American Medical Assn. were some medical developments likely to enhance life as well as to prolong it. ^ 1 TVT Good News On Health Performed Saturday First, there was now «»,-;- /.;.»,,) .,,,·;,,,,.,,.· ...u:.i. _,,__ t , J First, there was new evidence of the presence of a virus in some human cancers, reported by a number of groups duirng 1971. This is considered an important step since the eventual identification of the virus could lead to tests for earlier detection of cancer. It would also help in the investigation of the disease's origin and, hopefully, k vaccines to prevent it. One of the important advances in the virus theory is m the recently published research findings on Hodgkin's disease, a cancer of the lymph glands which killed an estimated 3,700 Americans last year. Researchers b e l i e v e they have found "tumor-asso- ciated antigens" which may signal the presence of the disease in the body even before symptoms develop. Also among n e w 1 y -a n- nounced developments this year has been a new breast cancer drug, now in the testing stage. The drug, caluster- one, administered to a group of women patients hitherto unresponsive to treatment with other hormones and chemicals, produced a regression rate of 64 per cent, a California doctor reported. Another way medical research has paid off recently is in the development of a drug that lowers fat levels in the blood of sufferers with coronary heart disease. Although the drug, clofibrate, did not Huntington-Keyser Rite Performed Miss Mary Ellen Keyser, daughter of the Rev. and Mrs. MRS. R. J.

According to the American Heart Assn., there are an estimated 1% million cases of heart attacks annually. Life insurance statistics indicate that heart disease is in fact the most frequent cause of death today. Yet another recent encouraging announcement was a triple vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella. The advantage of being inno- culated against all three diseases at the same time is especially important to children in less accessible areas of the country, where frequent medical visits are not feasible due to the shortage of personnel or family finances. The important news for Americans--whether they are covered by government health programs such as Medicare for the aged or Medicaid for the poor, or are among the 187 million who carry private health insurance--is that medical advances of the '70s are already signalling a healthier future for all.
