in Treating Kidney Disease

HAIFA — A peritoneal
dialysis unit that can be op-
erated at home by patients
requiring treatment is
under development by Prof.
Amnon Foux and his team
in the Silver Institute of
Bio-Medical Engineering of
the Technion - Israel Insti-
tute of Technology.
The new dialysis machine
uses the process of
peritoneal dialysis, rather
than the more common
hemodialysis to treat vic-
tims of chronic renal (kid-
ney) failure.
These patients must have
their blood purified fre-
quently to keep them from
being slowly poisoned by
the excess water and wastes
that accumulate as a result
of their kidney failure.

Hemodialysis accomplishes
this by circulating blood
through the dialysis
machine which is connected
to the patient's blood system
through an arterial shunt.
In peritoneal dialysis,
there is no direct connec-
tion to the cardiovascu-
lar system, and waste
products are removed

sion through the mem-
branes of the peritoneal
Peritoneal dialysis has a
number of advantages over
hemodialysis, especially for
patients with heart or vas-
cular diseases, diabetics,
the elderly and young chil-
dren. It also avoids the prob-
lems of increased heart load
associated with
hemodialysis. The device is
entirely- automatic, con-
trolled by a built-in micro-
computer system.

Gentiles OK Reform's Proselytizing

Leading Catholic and Pro-
testant churchmen and
scholars have endorsed —
with some cautionary ob-
servations — a proposal by
Rabbi Alexander Schindler,
president of the Union of
American Hebrew Congre-
gations (UAHC), to seek
converts to the Jewish faith
among the "unchurched" or
others searching for roots in
religion, according to _a re-
port released by the UAHC,
the central body of Reform
Judaism in the U.S. and
The proposal, which
would reverse a 400-year-
old Jewish tradition of not
proselytizing, was advanced
last December by Schindler.
The UAHC's 180-member
board then set up a task
force to study the question
of "bringing the message of
Judaism" to any and all who
wish to examine or embrace
it. The task force, headed by
David Belin of Des Moines,
convened in New York last
weekend in conjunction
with the semi-annual meet-
ing of the UAHC board of
trustees. It will report to the
UAHC's General Assembly
in December.
The UAHC's Depart-
ment of Interreligious Af-
fairs made public re-

gians. Eighteen re-
