Happiness Through Health
Once A Year Birth Control Pill
The World Health Organisa
tion is trying out in London a
"once-a-year pill" which has
already been tested by 6,000
women in West Germany The
pill, manufactured by the Ger
man firm, Chemic Gruenan
thai, is said to give as much
protection from conception as
birth control pills taken daily.
The once-a-year (till is a thin
tube about an inch-and-a-half
in length. It contains the hor
mone progesterone and is im
planted in the womb In Ger
many it costs $25 Generally
birth control pills which con
tain progesterone only are not
considered as efficacious (ef
fective) as those which have
estrogen as well.
New Treatment For
Psoriasis:
New treatment holds hope of
relief for six million Ameri
cans suffering form the itchy
and scaly psoriasis, leading
researcher says. The treat
ments can bring relief for
even the most seriously af
flicted. said Dr Eugene M
Farber, a psoriasis authority
and head of the Second Inter
national Symposium on Psori
asis held recently at Sanford
University.
But the relief is temporary
and the new innovations in
treatment must be continued
~ they are not cures, he said.
The treatments, out lined by
Dr. Farber, range from an
cient Egyptian medications to
a trip to Israel for daily swims
in the Dead Sea
Thousands of psoriasis suf
(erers have the disease so
extensively they must be hos
pitalized as the thick plates of
dry skin spread over up to 90
percent of their bodies. Far
ber added
Psoriasis, a chronic, recur -
rent skin disease, most com
monly begins between the
ages of 15 and 25. although it
can begin at any time The
first signs are itching or scal
ing at elbows or scalp, but it
can rapidly spread and be
come disfiguring, Karberstat
ed
Most promising is the Puva
treatment, which combines
long-wave ultraviolet light
and a drug called eight-metho
xypsoralen. a medication used
by the ancient Egyptians, ht
said
"Studies have shown that by
using the treatment twice a
week for 10 minutes for 15 to 2υ
trealments. 90 percent οι ine
patients clear up without the
use of ointments," Farber
continued. "Maintenance
treatments are needed once
a week or once every two
weeks About half the patients
studied were controlled with
just the minimum."
An*si<ici promising ueai
ment. Dr. Farber said, in
volves swimming in Israel's
Dead Sea and sun-bathing for
long periods "The water is 38
percent salt, and at 300 meters
below sea level there is a lot of
long wave ultraviolet light
while most of the burning rays
are filtered out," Dr. Farber
said
A third advance is a psoria
