Rome (JTA) — A dinner in
Turin in honor of ex- Soviet
refusenik Ida Nudel became
the scene of a clash between
supporters of Israel and
Turin's deputy mayor.
Ms. Nudel, who is in Turin
to promote the Italian edi-
tion of her autobiography,
was awarded honorary
citizenship of the city in a
ceremony.
At the chimer following the
ceremony, five members of
the Italy-Israel Association
stood up and walked out,
claiming they could not sit
at the same meal with depu-
ty mayor Marziano Mar-
zano, a socialist.
The group has long main-
tained that Mr. Marzano is
anti-Israel, but there also
appeared to be a strong dose
of local politics surrounding
the incident.
"We will not eat with any
enemy of Israel, which is
what Marzano has demon-
strated himself to be," said
Angelo Pezzana, president of
the association, who is also a
Turin city council member
from a party opposing Mr.
Marzano's.
"Out of respect and in an
evening in which the guest
is a person who fought for 17
years, held in Siberian
camps, in criminal mental
hospitals, to defend the
rights of Jewish compatriots,
this person (Marzano) cannot
be at the same table. Either
he goes or we do," Mr. Pez-

zana said.
According to the Turin
newspaper La Stampa, Mr.
Marzano left the room, but
was convinced to return by
Mayor Giovanna Cattaneo
"out of respect for the
guests."
Mr. Marzano refused to
comment, saying only that
he was "bitter" over the in-
cident.
Mr. Pezzana told reporters
he had warned the mayor
before the dinner that if Mr.
Marzano attended the
dinner, his group would
leave.
He said that Mr. Marzano
had for a long time shown
his hostility to Israel in his
writings and in his political
positions.
"We told the mayor that if
Marzano was at the dinner,
we would leave. He did not
want to recognize this, and
for us it was not an incident,
but a provocation," Mr. Pez-
zana said.
He said his group had al-
ready walked out once in the
past when Mr. Marzano had
been at a ceremony honoring
Rome's Chief Rabbi Elio
Toaff.
"If Marzano, after the
clash over the Toaff visit,
had apologized, we would
have put it in the past. But
given the fact that he called
us 'rabble' since we didn't
want to sit at the same table
with him, we will take him
to court," Mr. Pezzana said.

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Hun-
dreds of dwarfs suffering
from an ailment named after
Tel Aviv University Pro-
fessor Zvi Laron, can be
cured now with a hormone
produced in Japan and
tested by Laron in Israel.
Mr. Laron, Marsh Pro-
fessor of Endocrinology at
Tel Aviv, reported his fin-
dings following two years of
tests.
He said the drug, IGF-1,
enabled children suffering
from Laron type dwarfism,
or LTD, to grow by 3-5 in-
ches.
All the children who
received IGF-1 grew and Mr.
Laron has concluded that
the disease is finally
curable.
Some 250 people are
known to be suffering from
Laron type dwarfism, and 41
of them are in Israel.

LTD was first diagnosed
among Jews of Middle East-
ern origin and later among
Jews and non-Jews in other
Middle Eastern and
Mediterranean countries, as
well as descendants of
migrants from those coun-
tries.
The disease is characteriz-
ed by dwarfism, obesity,
small hands, feet and faces.
The liver fails to produce the
hormone that causes growth
and people with LTD reach a
height of 3-4 feet.
Mr. Laron said that his
studies had led Fujisawa Co.
of Osaka, Japan, to produce
a biosynthetic hormone,
IGF-1, which was first tested
in Israel.
That hormone is ad-
ministered daily before
breakfast, in doses that de-
pend on the child's weight. It
makes the children taller.
