Treatment Offers Hope
For Osteoporosis

Be In

c~ rnce 1946

Southfield Rd. at 12 Mile Rd.

T

he more than 20 million
American women who suf-
fer from postmenopausal
osteoporosis may benefit
from a new form of treatment.
Sandoz Pharmaceuticals Corp.
has received clearance to market
Miacalcin Nasal Spray, which
has shown increases in spinal
bone density in women more
than five years after menopause.
"While estrogens are consid-
ered first-line therapy for
postmenopausal osteoporosis, ap-
proximately 30 percent to 50 per-
cent of women refuse, cannot
tolerate or should not use estro-
gen," says Dr. Louis Avioli,
Shoenberg Professor of Medicine
and director of the division of
bone and mineral diseases at the
Washington University School of
Medicine.
The nasal spray adds another
form of treatment to a small list
of choices.
"Osteoporosis is a devastating
disease, and treatment options
are very limited," says Sandra
Raymond, executive director of
the National Osteoporosis Foun-
dation.
About one in four women is
at risk of developing post-
menopausal osteoporosis. The
condition is characterized by a
decrease in bone mass and den-
sity.
Calcitonin-salmon is the com-
pound in Miacalcin Nasal Spray.
While no serious allergic reac-
tions were reported during test-
ing, side effects can include nasal
dryness, redness, itching or
bleeding.
The manufacturers recom-
mend taking the nasal spray
with adequate calcium (at least
1,000 milligrams per day) and vi-
tamin D (400 IU per day).

Researchers studying how
sperm are made in the soil round-
worm have found that their work
may contribute to understand-
ing the cause of Alzheimer's dis-
ease.
Biology professor Steve
L'Hernault and graduate stu-
dent Michele Arduengo of
Emory University in Atlanta
found similarities between a
gene in the sperm of the mil-
limeter-long worm and a gene
on the human chromosome 14
that is mutant in people who
suffer from the most aggressive
form of Alzheimer's.
"The
connection • with
Alzheimer's literally dropped out
of the sky," Professor L'Hernault
says, "It's the scientific equiva-
lent of winning the lottery."

TEA TIME

BAD REACTION

Tea is in the news a lot late-
ly, both as the newest trendy hot
beverage and as a tool for better
health.
But which tea should you
drink, black or green? For better
health benefits, brew a cup of the
favorite beverage of Japan and
China: green tea. Cancer rates
are low in both countries, where
green tea is a dietary staple.
Researcher Hasan Mukhtar of
the Case Western Reserve Uni-
versity in Cleveland notes,
"There is a wealth of existing in-
formation showing that some
plan polyphenols protect against
cancer-causing substances."

Alison Ashton writes for Copley
News Service.

Mr. Mukhtar was motivated
to do his research because "it is
becoming increasingly clear that
dietary traditions and habits may
play an important role in deter-
mining the risk of developing a
number of major human can-
cers."
He conducted his research on
laboratory mice and found that
green tea polyphenols provided
protection against common en-
vironmental pollutants, such as
smoke and auto exhaust. The
substance was effective whether
applied to the skin or consumed
in water. For the mice, the pro-
tective effect was evident against
cancers of the skin, lung and
forestomach, as well as the pan-
creas, liver and colon.
Mr. Mukhtar hopes to apply
his research to human cancers.
In the meantime, it can't hurt
to brew a cup of green tea, relax
and sip.

UNEXPECTED BONUS

The effectiveness of over-the-
counter and prescription drugs
can be compromised by taking
them with food, according to a re-
cent issue of the Mayo Clinic
Health Letter. Food can reduce
or alter the absorption of med-
ications so they don't work as in-
tended.
Some tips from the newslet-
ter's editors:

• Read directions, warnings
and precautions.
• Don't mix medication into
food or hot beverages.
* Avoid alcohol.
• Don't take vitamin or min-
eral supplements with medica-
tion.
• Take medication with water
on an empty stomach. ❑
