PAGE TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWP Radioactive Iodine May Be Key To Success In Long Search for Cure for Death-Dealing Cancer (HHTOR'S NOTE: This ta the first of » serlc* on the latoat cancer research.) BT PAUL F. ELLIS I! ill ltd Pr*a» Science Writer (Copyrljht IMS by United Prcu) NEW YORK, Feb. 3. (U.PJ—A key to the cancer problem has been found. It is, not a puss key (hat will unlock all tho dooi-s. but may lead Into an area where keys to other doort may b« found. Thta first key l« radioactive to-*— _ dine. The door It unlocks Is the thyroid, gland. 80 Important is the significance of radioactive iodine in thyroid cancer that one of the world's top can- eer hospitals has set up a special project to take full advantage of It. This cancer center Is New York's Memorial Hospital for cancer «nd •Hied diseases. -. The scientist* assigned (o this project are members of the "thyroid team." It is a Joint project with the Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, recognized as one of the world's most famous centers for the treatment of thyroid diseases. Such Joint cooperation belweeii two hospitals is one of the encouraging signs on the horizon of cancer research. They seem sure to accomplish more working togcthct than •eparately. Results ao far show thai some patients, dying when they were admitted for treatment, have left the hospital under their own power. Iheir disease apparently under control. May Be Key to Other Discoveries The scientists of Ihis thyroid team do not say that these patients hive been cured. They are not thinking entirely of controlling thyroid eancer. They know thnt II radioactive substances, as produced In the atomic ovens, can bring results In certain types of thyroid cancer, the there may be radioactive substance olher than Iodine lhat will penetrate other types of cancer. This first* key—radioactive iodine —actually was found before Die atomic bomb was developed. But 'n those early days, back In Die 1930's the making of radioactive iodine was expensive. It ivns crcalcd in the cyclotron, B so-called alom •mashing machine. Today it iu made comparatively cheaply In the atomic laboratories at Onk Ridge Tenn. Radioaclive Iodine Is Ihe same as to taste and its chemical properties a» the product that a persoi buys In a drug store, except thnt It throws off radiation, and is nsei in extremely small amount,';. Radioactive Iodine is an Important key In cancer because normal thyroid has an affinity for Iodine. It collect* lodiiie from the blood •tream and uses It to make a hormone known nt thyroxln. The normal thyroid picks up Iodine whether It is radioactive or not. The radioactive substance , carries with College Extension Class To Be Formed at B.H.S.

Thyroid cancer ..itself Is a rare form and of all thyroid cancer cases only, about IS per cent "are initially suitable for treatment vrtlri" radioactive iodine. This Is because some thyroid tissue, once it becomes cancerous, loses most of ILs desire to collect Iodine. In the case of the 15 per cent of thyroid cancers that do pick, up the iodine, it has been found that mch cancers more close- IT rwtmbla th» structure ot th« original normal gland.

Coal Industry spoKCSineti admitted that Lewis' "Independent action" could mean a sudden strike by his soft coal miners.
