A San Francisco study of 796 homosexual men attributed the spread of AIDS in that group to being the recep tive partner in anal intercourse, with some related practices greatly aggravating the risk of infection. Monogamous homosexuals were no more likely to be infected than those who abstained during the two-year study period. A second study by government scientists confirmed an earlier finding that T-4 blood cell counts were the best predictor of which people infected with the AIDS virus would develop acquired immune deficiency syndrome. The National Cancer Institute study also reported that certain behaviors appear to determine the way AIDS manifests itself in some victims. Researchers for both studies, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, said their findings should not change the basic public health message about AIDS: Maintain a monogamous relationship with someone of the same infection status, or use a condom and other safe sex practices to lower risk. "If two people are both not infected, they can do whatever they want. And, in fact, if both are infected, they can do whatever they want," said NCI researcher Dr. James Goedert. "It's only when one is infected and the other isn't that they have problems." In an attempt to determine which sexual behaviors might be most responsible for AIDS transmission, researchers from the University of California at Berkley surveyed a random sample of 1034 single men aged 25-54 in the San Francisco area. None of 204 heterosexual men in the study was infected with the AIDS virus and they were excluded from further analysis. Intravenous drug users also were excluded. Among homosexual or bisexual men, the overall infection rate was 48.5 percent, with rates jumping dramatically as the number of reported male partners for the previous two years increased: no reported partners, 17.6 percent; one partner, 18.2 percent; 2-9 partners, 31.6 percent; 10-49 partners,53.8 percent; and more than 50 partners, 70.8 percent. The only sexual practice found to be significantly related to virus transmission was being the receptive partner in anal intercourse. Using a douche or enema prior to sex boosted the chance of infection even further, probably because it removes protective mucus from the rectal walls, the researchers said. Although practicing insertive anal intercourse and oral sex did not increase the risk of becoming infected, "that doesn't mean the virus can't be transmitted that way," researcher Nancy Padian said. She also emphasized the findings cannot be extrapolated to vaginal intercourse, which likely is potentially infectious to both partners. "What this study really shows is how important it is to engage in safe sex practices," she said. "And that includes using condoms and avoiding certain practices with anal intercourse such as douching or causing other rectal trauma." In the NCI study, 86 homosexual men from the New York and Washington area were analyzed over a three-year period after testing positive for the AIDS virus. During that time, 19 of the men developed AIDS. The researchers found they could predict which men would develop the disease by measuring their levels of T-4 cells, the white blood cells that play host and victim to the AIDS virus. The finding corroborated a study published last week in the New England Journal of Medicine, and may prove an important tool in documenting progression ofthe disease, Goedert said. Goedert said the NCI study went a step further, however, collecting preliminary data suggesting certain behavior common to the homosexual lifestyle Community News from Neighborhood & Community Groups HPWA Forum to Have First Meeting An informational and organizational forum for People with AIDS and People with ARC will be held in the Bering Memorial United Methodist Church fellowship hall on Thursday, Jan 22 from 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. The meeting will be held as two separate functions.

Modeling Studio Manager Killed During Robbery Police are searching for five Asian males who participated in a gang style robbery that left a man dead at a Montrose modeling studio Wednesday night, Jan. 14. Chih Chiang Wang, 28, manager of the Aloha Modeling Studio at 2709 Bagby, was shot in the head during the robbery attempt, police said. Chiang apparently had looked up after the robbers had ordered occupants of the building to lie on the floor with their heads down. Homicide Sgt. G.C Shultz said the incident began about 7:45 p.m. when three men entered the studio and "casually conversed" with Vietnamese customers. The men, armed with small handguns, then ordered the building's occupants to lie on the floor and took a billfold from an unidentified male customer. When Wang raised his head, he was shot, witnesses said. Two other men, also armed, entered the building and several shots were fired before the group fled in a dark- colored car. Despite the violence of the incident and the fact only one wallet was stolen, Shultz said police are considering robbery the eole motive in the attack.
