New Drug Stops
Scientists from the National Cancer Institute say an experimental new drug, in a
laboratory setting, stops the AIDS virus
Dr. Hiroaki Mitsuya, one of the
researchers developing the drug, also
stated in a presentation before the American Society of Microbiologists that he and
his colleagues feel the drug can be given
safely to AIDS victims. The drug, code-
named compound S, appears to be less
toxic in the test tube than other experimental AIDS medicines.
The new drug alters the chemical process that the virus uses to copy itself inside
white blood cells.
Researchers caution that a great deal
more work must be done before it can be
determined that compound S will play a
role in the treatment of AIDS.
Ann Wigmore, a teacher and lecturer, will
speak on the "values of living food" in the
fellowship hall of Bering Memorial
Church, 1440 Harold, at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 8.
Wigmore will lecture on cleansing and
detoxification, overcoming additions,
colon health, and anti-aging and rejuvenation.
Born in Lithuania in 1909, Wigmore's
philosophy is that if given the correct
nourishment, the body will restore itself.
She advises, "Let food be your medicine."
The lecture is being donated by Wigmore for the group Aid for AIDS. The public is invited to attend.
