Doctor dispel myths
surrounding AIDS causes
(Continued from Page 1)
HEALTH Service Director Caesar
Briefer is worried that if a case does
turn up in a University residence hall,
students will react like Gordon on
their false assumptions, causing
"some kind of crazy witch hunt" to
In an attempt to educate the
University community and avoid the
hysteria that might follow news of a
student or faculty member contrac-
ting the disease, Health Service last
month published a pamphlet detailing
the most recent medical information
The Centers for Disease Control also
provides an information packet that
gives detailed information about the
CDC'S Fallis said the general sym-
ptoms of the disease include fever,
diarrhea, swollen lymph glands, night
sweats, certain unexplained weight
loss, loss of appetite, and extreme
However, the Health Service pam-
phlet warns that these symptoms are
not exclusive of AIDS, and the ap-
pearance of these symptoms does not
necessarily mean one has the disease,
especially if one is not in the risk
groups (homosexuals, intravenous
drug users, etc.).
Even if someone is carrying the
disease they may not experience the
symptoms. It can be "six months to
five years from the time of exposure
to the time the first symptoms ap-
pear," Fallis said.
UNIVERSITY Hospitals' Ross said
there are currently an estimated one
million AIDS carriers in the United
States. Carriers are "people who are
positive to the blood test but don't
have any evidence of the disease," he
Although there is no "test for
AIDS", Health Service's Briefer said
a method of testing for the disease is
to test the blood for the antibody that
develops in response to the H TLV-III
But if you test positive, it does not
necessarily mean you have AIDS, will
develop AIDS, or that you are a
carrier, said Marvin Marks, chair-
man of the Board of Directors for
Detroit's Wellness Network, a volun-
teer educational and support service.
OF THE people in the U.S. who
tested positive for the antibody, only
about 20 to 25 percent have developed
the disease, said Dr. Harold Ober-
man, head of clinical pathology and
the bloodbank at University Hospitals
In Michigan, the test is offered at
University Hospitals and Henry Ford
Hospital in Dearborn and Detroit as
well as in Grand Rapids, Flint, and
Traverse City, Marks said.
Around 700 to 800 people have taken
the test in this state since it was first
offered here in April, said Marks. He
cited the average cost at $25 a test.
BUT enrolled University students
do not have to pay for testing or con-
sultation if they go to Health Service,
said Mark Erichson, a Health Service
If students go to University
Hospitals directly, rather than have
Health Service send the blood sample
over to them, the cost would run about
$150 for testing and consultation,
While testing for the antibody is a
simple process, treating the disease
once it develops is difficult. Treat-
ment is limited to treating individual
infections that occur from the break-
down of the immune system, said
Health Service's Briefer.
It is a "very unsatisfactory way of
treating the disease ... as soon as you
treat one infection it's not long before
the next shows up ... it's a losing bat-
tle," University Hospitals' Ross said.
HOSPITAL costs for AIDS victims
are soaring. Ross estimates the cost
for one day in the hospital is $1,000 and
one month about $30,000 for an AIDS
Marks of the Wellness Network said
the cost of treating the infections
which occur because of AIDS is high
because most of the medicine is not
available in the United States, and
there is no inexpensive way of
producing it. The average cost of
medication alone for an AIDS patient
is about $100 to $200 for a week to a
month, he said.
"Michigan at this point is enjoying a
very low case load," Marks said.
"We're now where San Francisco was
about four to five years ago.-
Although most experts don't see an
AIDS crisis in this area yet, Marks
notes that the rate of cases is doubling
annually nationwide, a vaccine is not
expected until the next three or four
years and a cure not until the next ten
Tomorrow: the University's efforts
to educate students about AIDS. ,
NYC to begin AIDS education in classes
NEW YORK (UPI) - Schools chan-
cellor Nathan Quinones said yester-
day that teachers in the nation's
largest school system will start in-
structing students about the deadly
disease AIDS in sex education classes
as early as February.
"WE can't afford much time, in
terms of the dimensions of this
disease," he said in a taped interview
aired on the WNBC-TV program
SOME religious and political
leaders reacted immediately to
Quinones' announcement, saying they
were worried that an AIDS education
program would encourage
promiscuity and sexual experimen-
tation among the 946,000 students in
the nearly 1,000 schools.
Quinones said, "Let me first say
that I have indicated to the board (of
education) that we have to encompass
AIDS within 'Family Living and Sex
Education'... and that this is an issue
that I am forcefully going to press for,
in terms of including it in the schools
of New York City."
He said be hoped to have an AIDS
program in place by February, when
the new school semester begins.
QUINONES said two superinten-
dents in the high school division were
already working "to see how the
Quinones said, however, that he did
not know any specific cases of high
school students with AIDS.
ONE UNIDENTIFIED second-
grader with the AIDS virus has been
'We can't afford much time, in terms of
the dimensions of the disease.'
New York City
get AIDS, what do you teach next?"
"Orthodox Rabbi Yehuda Levin, a
former mayoral candidate and a
member of the Family Defgense
Coalition, said he was worried that the
AIDS education program would e62
courage promiscuity among students.
He said it "could put a train of
thought in children's minds that
would lead them to do activities that
might otherwise have not been done,
such as anal intercourse.
"With nearly a 50 percent dropout
rate, with an educational system that
has been proven ineffective, it's
ludicrous to think that they have not
taken over as moral arbitrators,
Given their track record... that'll
probably blow it in terms of AIDS,"
HE SAID THAT Quinones woul
engage in social engineering and
"might be less than honest.. There is a
right and there is a wrong in sex. I
don't think Nathan Quinones has the
guts to teach children in schools right
curriculum could be established in
grades nine through 12."
The schools chancellor added that
"given the experimentation that star-
ts in adolescence with drugs and with
sex, the odds are that we certaining
have" students suffering from the in-
curable Acquired immune dificiency
syndrome in the city's 111 high
attending a New York City school
over the objections of some parents.
He said he expected opposition
from religious groups over the AIDS
Cardinal John O'Connor of the Ar-
chdiocese of New York said he wanted
to see the plans before he commented,
but added, "If you teach that if you
participate in certain activities you
