Non-Drug Approach to AIDS Treatment Suggested By Jan Ziegler United Press International WASHINGTON—Certain white blood cells are able to keep the AIDS virus from reproducing, a discovery that sug gests patients may have the power to fight off the deadly disease without drugs, California researchers said Thursday. The team from the University of Cali- fornia at San Francisco isolated the cells from three apparently healthy homosexual men who had antibodies to the AIDS virus, but who showed no trace of the virus. The cells, a type of white blood cell called CD8 suppressor T-cells, destroyed the acquired immune deficiency syndrome virus when mixed together in a test tube. "I think the drama in this is that this is the first indication of a mechanism hy which an individual can ward off or suppress the virus in their own body," said Dr. Jay I-*vy, a UCSF professor of medicine who wrote the report published in the journal Science. "I'm really excited about this," he said. "It also fits into our own belief that if your immune system is functioning well you should be able to handle this virus. Levy and the UCSF researchers have been following about 40 healthy men who have AIDS virus antibodies but no detectable virus in their system. Since most AIDS patients do have active virus infections, Levy said he wondered what made the healthy men different form others who develop AIDS or AIDS- related symptoms. He and colleagues theorized the CD8 cells make some substance that interferes with the virus' reproductive machinery. IjOss of those cells weakens victims' ability to fight off disease, leaving them open to a variety of fatal infections and rare cancer. If the CD8 cells were removed from the blood stream, made to multiply using a natural cell-booster like inter- leukin 2 and reintroduced into the body, they could be a way of preventing or treating AIDS, Levy said. "This selective treatment would avoid the known effect of IL-2 in increasing T-helper cells that could become additional target cells for HIV (AIDS virus) replication," the team wrote. The AIDS virus attacks so-called helper T-cells. IL-2, an immune system booster, induces these cells to multiply and has also been in testing as a cancer treatment. Levy said the team was searching for a human patient on whom to try the CDS method, someone who has an active AIDS virus infection and "looks like they're going into the early symptoms of AIDS." "We've got two steps to take," Levy said. "One would be to identify the substance that the CD8 makes to suppress the virus. The other is to determine whether this will have clinical relevance." I_evy, researcher Christopher Walker and others took blood samples from the three men and removed the T-cells, named CD8 for a protein marker on their surface. When all the CD8 cells were removed from the blood, the virus started to grow in what remained. In another test, they added CD8 cells to cultured blood that had been depleted of them for three weeks. Reproduction of the virus ceased, but the virus was not killed. DARREL G. ROMENESKO Darrel G. Romenesko. 34, owner of Darrel's Corner of Roddy's, passed away Tuesday.
