16 Gote&bufg Redtster -MQn, Gatesb^ (II, Thursdoy, AptW 26, 1 973 STUDIES CELLS — Dr. Isaiah J. Fldler believes that understanding the way cancer spreads witliin the body may be the fastest way of harnessing the disease until total prevention becomes possible. NEA Scientist Studies Spread of Cancer (Continued from page 22) inherent qualities of the tumor cells themselves. He has bred a strain of cancer cells in which each succeeding generation is more potent, with regard to metastasis, than its parent, t^en he injected 25,W live cancer cells into mice he found an average of 40 lung cancer nodules when dissecting the mice three weeks later. Cancer cells taken from these resultant tumors were rein­ jected into other mice. The second generation yielded 117 lung cancer nodules. The third generation yielded 327, the fourth 428, the fifth nearly 600 and so on. "This experiment demonstrated that we were able to specifically select, within the same tun\pr, lines possessing an increasing ability to metastasize. It proves that metastasis is not a random phenomenon, but depends on inherent qualities of the tumor ceU itself," Fidler said in a recent interview in Nogales, Ariz., where the American Cancer Society held its annual seminar for science journalists. The Israeli stresses (hat much more research must be done in the neglected field (rf the unique properties d! cancer cell surfaces. "The ultimate treatment for the prevention of metastasis could center not on chemotherapy where drugs kill tumor cells and many normal cells, but on alteration of tumor cell behavior. "IF WE COULD prevent the arrest of tumor cells in blood vessels — keep them circulating throughout the system for at least 24 hours — we could prevent their spread," Fidler says. In a related investigation he found that ironically it may be the body's hnmune response that helps some of the spreading cancer cells to clump and thus survive. (NEXT: The Black Factor) May Increase Meat Cost READ THE WANT ADS! additive Jan. 1. It completed the process Wednesday by announcing a ban effective Friday on use of DES pellets implanted in the ears of cattle and sheep. Two Oplflions Acting FDA Commissioner Sherwin Gardner insisted that because several substitute growth-promoting chemicals are available, the DES ban need not disrupt the nation's meat supply (or) cause an increase in meat prices." But Agriculture Secretary Earl L. Butz, conceding the ban was necessary under an anti-cancer law, said it wUl "result in increased food cost to the consumer and involves a product which has been used for more efficient food production for 20 years with no known instance of harm to humans." A cattle industry spokesman added the ban could raise beef prices up to 8 cents a pound by forcing cattlemen who operate without chemical stimulants to use more bushels of high-priced feed for each pound gained hy a steer. Coald Be SefloBS Other Agriculture Department officials warned the increased drain on com needed to replace the lost "boost" effect of DE» could be serious in a ytir when there are worries that bad weather will hold down com acreage.

The board, In releasing its findings Wednesday, also urged the Uitan Mass Transit Administration to require design changes in IS more cars of similar design before releasing 'unds for purchasing them to he Chicago South Suburban Mass Transit District. The funds to the district were withheld pending an investigation into the crash that occurred Oct. 30,1972. The transportation board said Wednesday that the so - called collision pasts" in the commu- ;er cars did not meet "the requirements of federal regulations" for crashworthiness. The posts are located at each end of the cars to absorb the shock of a crash. By BEHNARD BRENNER WASHINGTON (UP I) Agriculture Department officials warn the banning of a growth stimulant for cattle and sheep that is loiown to cause cancer will lead to increased food prices. Economists who work for Agriculture' Secretary Earl L. Butz put the meat price increase at up to 4.5 cents, per pound. Cattlemen said they thought the retail price effect would be 8 cents more per pound. New Pinch Agriculture Department spokesmen said there also would be a new pinch on the over-all Uvestock-poultry feed supply, because it will take more grain to feed livestock without the growth stimulant. The controversial stimulant is DES, a synthetic female hormone long known to cause cancer. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned he hormone as a livestock feed CONTACT LENSES For Complete Information on Contact Lenses Phone 343-7410 Dispanstd on Prascription of DR. E. W.
