Wednesdoy, May 16,1973 B » ', It Prestigious Pasteur Institute Seeks Public Handout to Keep Doors Open fty ALINE MOSBY ' PARIS (tJPI) -|fr*HSi is celebrating die lSwh annivw- sary of Louis Pasteur by asking Its citizens to give money to keep the Pasteur Institute alive. Throughout the land, the week has been devoted to Pasteur, from a speech by President Georges Poimpidou in Paris to the unveiling of a Paiteuf ttetue in the little town of ArbOii where the scientist in the lftMs discovered that bacteria cause infections and femtentation. The government-run television Tuesday night opened an appeal for each man, woman and child to give five francs ($1.20) to the prestigious but poor Pasteur Institute of Paris. dA/family Stomach Expert Recommended Dr. Limb i » I By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb — We seek 1 your column as soon as the paper is delivered and have read your helpful advice to others. May I ask you a special favor for a mystifying condition that exists at our home? An early reply may ease our \ worried minds, t • It is now two years since my ; sister (83 years old) was strick- • en with this illness. Truthfully, , I think it is a case of nerves, : due to nothing to occupy her ; mind. She has lived alone for '< many years like a cocoon, ' making no friends and being ; very suspicious of people wanting to mind her business. She became fearful of living J alone. She had fallen at times, ; lost the sight of one eye through • glaucoma, and was fearful of ! falling and breaking an arm or leg. We belong to a very fine medical plan, got her to join, went to the numerous, thorough tests and came through with a clean slate of health. She has continuous nausea, wakes up with it, and it lasts all day, but she never loses her food. The only thing they found was a hiatal hernia. The doctor said at this age it wasn't advisable to operate. She wasn't satisfied and fear ed cancer of the stomach, so we took her to another doctor and he too couldn't find anything wrong. I think it is "psychosomatic." After reading this description, what is your diagnosis and would you suggest we take her to a stomach specialist? Dear Reader — Persistent nausea is a symptom, not a diagnosis. It can be caused by nervous tension and a variety of disorders of the digestive tract, including'. hiatal hernia, and changes in the brain associated with fatty deposits in the arteries. The outstretched hand brought an outcry from three medical researchers' unions who insisted the state should completely support the institute. But the institute retorted that although. it would like more state funds, it also needs private sources of money to keep ibr independence. official government for biological and research is not suf- said Prof. Jacques Nobel Prize-winning of the Pasteur In* "The budget medical ficient," Monod, director stitute. "It is lower in France than in most industrialized countries. When Prance's iwealth Is leading it to become a world economic power, it seems strange that public funds cannot aid biomedical research more. "That would be a sufficient reason for us to ask the public to aid us. But another reason, in my eyes more essential, is that this is what Pasteur wished. He created a private institute to be independent of the, government. We are not appealing for charity but giving citisens the chance to aid research." Pasteur, who was born Dec. 27, 1122, opened the institute In 1888, catting it "the temple of (the future, of riches, of well' being. It is here that humanity will grow, strengthen and improve." Its purposes were to treat rabies victims (he invented rabies serum), teach bacteriology and conduct research on infectious diseases. It is supported by the' sale of serums and vaccines, private donations and some gflverftment fiixls, Another institute official, Dr. Jean CouTdrier, said, "The institute could disappear if we don't get private money from this appeal. Ilia alternative is we could be nationalized by the government. We must remain independent." RED& WHITE Individuals past 80 often have .poor circulation to the brain. (There are so many changes which can occur in the brain and its control of the personality and functions of the entire body, that it is sometimes difficult to pinpoint them. Your sister may be responding' less well to stress, and may be having changes in personality because of changes in her arteries. See Specialist It would be wise to have your sister checked carefully by a gastroenterologist, a specialist in stomach problems. He could examine the status of her hiatal hernia to see if it is a contributing factor. If she has a fairly persistent one, lying flat at night may be causing her problem. The acid digestive juices may be spilling back into the lower part of her esophagus, causing irritation of the esophagus and nausea. It is probably true that surgery isn't indicated in her age group. If the hiatal hernia is a : problem, careful attention to medical management may help a great deal. This would include elevation of the head of the bed, small meals, neutralization of any excess acid she might have (this may not be a problem in he rage group), avoiding anything tight around her waist, such as belts, clothing, girdles, and avoiding stooping. The doctor could advise her regarding the over-all aspects of living patterns to give her maximum benefit. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) FOOD STORES IN KNOXVILLE MEL SAYRS MKT.
