Dr. Isaacs Studies
Cure For Anemia
Dr. Raphael Isaacs, blood special-
ist doing research work at the Hen-
ry F. Simpson Memorial Institute,
announced yesterday that he is now
working on a method to extract the
valuable substances from liver which
are known to prevent anemia.
If, he said, we can take the or-
dinary liver we buy in the neighbor-
hood butcher shop, and remove from
it these valuable chemical products,
it would help many people consid-
erably. For, he 'added, once ex-
tracted, these substances could rather
easily be produced synthetically in a
crystalized form and could be used
as a cure for anemia sufferers.
went on. The tips of these seedlings
are then clipped twice with a special
pair of scissors to remove the natur-
ally occurring growth hormone and
thus make the seedlings more sensi-
tive.
Then Shadow Photographed
The cubes are then placed on the
side of the stem and left for 90 min-
utes. At this time the plants are
shadow photographed to obtain a
permanent record from which the
amount of curvature produced by the
growth hormone in the agar cube
may be determined. A great bend in
the seedling indicates a large hor-
mone content.
The tediousness of the task may be
attested to when one knows that usu-
ally less than 50 per cent of the seed-
lings grown are straight enough to be
used in the experiment. These growth
hormones are so active that a con-
centration of about 43 millionths of
a milligram is sufficient to give a
curvature of 15 degrees.
