NEW KIDNEY STONE TEST
DISCRIMINATES BETWEEN
"STONE-FORMERS" & NORMAL

A team of research work-
ers in the -Urology Depart-
ment of the Hadasseh-
Hebrew University Medical
Center and the Applied
Chemistry Department of
the Hebrew University,
have developed a new
method of identifying per-
sons who are liable to form
kidney stones even before
signs of these stones appear.
The research has been pub-
lished in Uro-logical Re-
search, the Journal of Urol-
ogy (Sept. 1982) and Inves-
..tigative Urology.

' The first working pro-
totypes of a new, relatively
inexpensive diagnostic sys-
tem is being assembled by
an Israeli company and
placed in hospitals for inde-
pendent evaluation of how
they function in a hospital
environment.

The scientists who have
developed this new test are
. Professor Sarah Sarig and
Dr. Nissim Carti of the Cas-
ali Institute of Applied
Chemistry in the Hebrew
University and Dr. Saul
Perlberg, of the Urology
Department of the
Hadassah-Hebrew Univer-
sity Medical Center, headed
by Professor Marco Caine.

.

"In the Jerusalem area
there is a 30 percent chance
that a patient who has al-
ready had a kidney stone
will produce another. The
percentage varies in differ-

:11,:er.azgetasriEz94,11&11.,

?.'Lz.,

ent parts of the world." Dr.
Perlberg explained. "One of
our goals is to prevent the
formation of another stone.
This is done by administer-
ing drugs which inhibit the
formation of calcium oxa-
late crystals. With the new
test, we are able to measure
the effectiveness of the
drug. Until now drugs were
administered on an empiri-
cal basis, and we waited to
see whether a stone formed.
It is known that the right
drug can be 80 to 90 percent
effective: Now we can adjust
the dosage for each patient
according to the results of
the test. A lower dosage is
needed in many cases than
that which was being
prescribed. In cases which
do not react to one drug, we
can try another."

"Another one of our goals
is the detection of stone-
formers. There are silent
stones, where people do not
know they have them.
When they are discovered,
the kidneys already have
been damaged."

Dr. Perlberg concluded:
"This method in conjunction
with modern computer
facilities make it possible
for a Urology Department to
provide an efficient, cost-
effective detection program
where an outpatient de-
partment can — testing six
patients an hour — check
every patient in its clinics."

NEW SITE PLANNED

Annette
Meskin,
president of the Greater De-
troit Chapter of Hadassah
recently announced the
formation of a committee to
select a new building to

house the offices of the local
Chapter. Phyllis Newman,
a past chapter president
will be chairman of the
committee.

TWENTY-FOUR NURSES
IN THIRD CLASS OF HENRIETTA
SZOLD-HADASSAH-HEBREW
UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF NURSING

This year, 24 graduates
received their B.Sc. Nurs-
ing Degrees from the Hen-
rietta Szold-Hadassah-
Hebrew University School
of Nursing — the pioneer
academic degree program in
Israel.
Three of the graduates
were men. One nurse re-
ceived her diploma with a
nine-month baby in her
arms. She explained that
she intended to continue
with her profession. Three
other nurses had also mar-
ried and had children dur-
ing their courses.
At the ceremony Frieda S.
Lewis, the national
president of Hadassah said:.
"I am happy to celebrate the
graduation ceremony of the
third class of our Henrietta
Szold - Hadassah Hebrew
University Nursing School.
This is a milestone tinged
with Nostalgia. Over 60
years ago, our beloved foun-
der, Henrietta Szold, estab-
lished the first school in Is-
rael to train nurses."
Dr. Samuel Penchas,
director-general of the
Hadassah Medical Organ-
ization said that academiza-
tion has in the past contrib-
uted to teaching and re-
search, and he predicted
that the principles they
learned will help them to
meet the challenges in the

.

closing decades of the Twen-
tieth Century.
Mrs. Jidih Steiner-
Freud, dean of the Nursing
School, said that of the 63
B.Sc. graduates from
Hadassah, many are al-
ready working for a second
degree, as they learn to
function both in the hospital
and in the University.
"In addition," she said,
"the School has
strengthened it's ties abroad
through attending interna-
tional congresses and
through exchange pro-
grams. None of this could
have taken place without
the"-encouragement of the
women of Hadassah, who
early on appreciated the
need to professionalize
nursing."
A class spokesman said:
"We have learned in this
comprehensive educational
approach how to think in-
dependently, to pursue
knowledge through litera-
ture, and at the same time
to consider the spiritual and
humane needs of our
patients. This has given us
confidence. We also realize
that four years of study are
only a beginning. We hope
that the whole nursing pro-
fession in Israel will become
academized and that the
public will become aware of
the value of education.

MEMBERSHIP FOR A
CHANUKAH GIFT

Albert Einstein said "The
world is a dangerous place
to live in not because of the
people who do evil, but be-
cause of the people who sit
around and let it happen."
As we approach the Fes-
tival of Chanukah, we recall
once more the kindling of
the lights and the courage of
the Maccabees. They knew
the time had come for ac-
tion!
By joining Hadassah, you
are joining 370,000 other
women throughout the
country who are concerned
about the quality and con-
tinuity of Jewish life here,
in Israel and elsewhere.

You are saying that you be-
lieve in the healing of Is-
rael's people through hospi-
tal care, education and med-
ical research and in the
training through voca-
tional and technical educa-
tion of Israel's disadvan-
taged youth.
The membership applica-
tion at the bottom of the
page can be used to join
yourself or to give the gift of
membership to someone
else. A gift of life member-
ship would mean no paying
of annual dues since that
money is invested and the
interest paid is used for the
services.
