Weizmann Scientists Find Help for Trees, Migraine Headaches

REHOVOT — Scientists
at the Weizmann Institute
of Science have found a way
of using tobacco which may
be helpful in improving the
qualities of citrus trees and
fruit.
They say tobacco cells can
encourage the growth of
orange cells in tissue cul-
ture, which promises a new
approach to producing or-
anges and other plants.
According to Prof. Esra
Galun, head of the Insti-
tute's department of plant
genetics, one of the prob-
lems in developing improved
varieties of oranges has
been an almost complete
lack of citrus strains with
characteristics suitable for
breeding into presently cul-
tivated oranges. Further-
more, even if such traits
were readily available, they
would be difficult to intro-
duce into the most popular
"seedless ." varieties.

culture may now provide
solution to both these dif-
ficulties, since cells with
mutated characteristics
can be conveniently pro-
duced artificially.

The end product is a
whole plant capable of sur-
viving in the field.
The Institute has also
found that a drug intro-
duced to treat arthritis is ef-
fective in relieving both mig-
raine headaches and
menstrual pains.
In their work with mig-
raine sufferers — among
whom women outnumber
men by five to one — Prof.

Russia to Resume
Sudan Shipments?

NEW YORK — The So-
viet Union has reportedly
agreed to resume the ship-
ment of military spare parts
to Sudan, some of which
had already started to ar-
rive.
Moscow ordered a suspen-
sion in 1971, when Sudanese
President Jaafar al-Nu-
meiry accused the Russians
of helping Sudan's Com-
munist Party in its shor-
tlived coup against him.

Uriel Zor, working with hos-
pitals in Jaffa and Tel Aviv,
tested 26 patients with flu-
fenamic acid, a drug used in
the treatment of diseases of
the joints, such as arthritis.

In the case of all eight
patients who received the
drug during their mig-
raine warning or "aura"
period, no further symp-
toms developed. The oth-

ers received their doses
after the attack was un-
derway, and all except one
reported slight headaches
only. Moreover, the nau-
sea, vomiting and dizzi-
ness which often accom-
pany migraine headaches
were also alleviated. The
drug also has fewer side
effects than present mig-
raine drugs.

In another study, 40
women with severe symp-
toms of monthly dysmenor-
rhea were given flufenamic
acid. More than 80 percent
reported complete disap-
pearance of symptoms, 12
percent found partial relief,
with only four percent re-
porting no improvement.
While flufenamic acid is
available in pharmacies in

Begun in Tel Aviv

ing projects in the greater
