Dangers of Depleted uranium
Aerojet military weapons testing facility in the Chino Hills east of L.A.
Chino Hills and its' residents have been the unknowning participants in
an experiment using depleted uranium weapons.
Recently completed studies, done by the Environmental Protection
Agency's Department of Toxic Substances Control, at the former Aerojet
Ordnance Facility, in Chino Hills, have concluded that contaminants have
been found in both the soil and the ground water (at depths as great as
35 feet) at 10 locations on the site. The testing found evidence of
mustard gas, nerve gas (probably VX), tear gas, explosive chemicals and
other potentially dangerous materials (including depleted uranium,
perchlorate, and TNT).
Depleted uranium (also known as DU or U-238) is the waste product left
over from the production of nuclear weapons and nuclear generators. The
name depleted uranium gives the false impression that it is harmless and
that the biological and enviromental dangers of enriched uranium have
been eleiminated. THIS IS NOT TRUE. DU has a radioactive half-life of
at least 4.5 billion years. IT IS DANGEROUS when inhaled or ingested.
As an airborne contaminant, it has been known to travel as much as 26
miles in the form of toxic and radioactive dust. It has the ability to
get into our gound water and soil when it rains.
Scientists searched for many years for a use of the more than 500,000
tons of DU stockpiled in the United States.
It was discovered that DU was a cheap way to enhance shells and bullets,
making them harder and better able to penetrate armor. Aerojet is the
Pentagon's largest supplier of DU weapons, producing 60 percent of all
DU penetrator bullets.
During the Gulf War, DU projectiles were fired by U.S. war planes.
Today in Iraq, there are special hospital wards to handle the cases of
new born babies that are suffering from radiation diseases and
mutations. Babies have extra toes, fused fingers, and missing ears.
Many of the children have liver and kidney diseases. There has been an
increase in leukemia, aplastic anemia, and malignant neoplasms. New
studies show that low-level exposure to radiation can cause genetic
instability and cancer in children of exposed parents. Exposed persons
may not die from cancer, but their off-spring have a greater chance of
inheriting mutated cells.
The dangers of DU have been noted for many years. In fact, in 1982,
then-Senator, Al Gore held special subcommittee hearings on the
radiation exposure of employees at an Aerojet Ordnance plant in
Depleted uranium is thought by many to be the source of the mysterious
Gulf War Syndrom which has plagued many of our young men and women since
returning from that war. Many of them handled projectiles made with DU
and others were in areas where DU projectiles had been exploded.
Do we have DU in our water? Has DU contaminated our soil? Have we been
breathing DU particles for years? Does Chino Hills have a high rate of
birth defects? Are there more case of childhood cancers here than in
other communities? How much DU was left on the Aerojet site? How much
dust was produced over the years from testing? Can DU be safely and
completely removed from the Aerojet site? Will grading on the site
create more DU dust? What about neighboring properties?
These are just a few of the questions that need to be answered.

Sero-diagnostic method for syphilis and other diseases
EP 0038150 A1
A diagnostic method for syphilis and other diseases capable of serodiagnosis is disclosed in which a test sample is caused to react with an antigen bonded support material which is used as a solid phase, the antigen being derived from the pathogen in question, and a labelled anti specific antibody is caused to react with the solid phase, whereby the amount of the anti specific antibody may be measured. Alternatively, when two different antibodies are produced in blood at different stages of infection, a plurality of test samples are caused to react with a plurality of such solid phases at the same time, and the solid phases are equally divided into two groups. A labelled anti first specific antibody is caused to react with each of the solid phases in one group, and a labelled second specific antibody is caused to react with each of the solid phases in the other group. Hence, the amount of the anti first specific antibody and the amount of the total anti organism antibody are measured at the same time and enable an indication of the stage of development of the disease to be obtained.
1. A sero-diagnostic method for a disease capable of serodiagnosis, in which method antigen derived from the pathogenic organism of the disease is bonded to a support material to yield organism antigen bonded support material as a solid phase, a test serum sample is caused to react with said solid phase in a first reaction, a labelled anti specific antibody is caused to react with said solid phase in a second reaction to yield a reaction product labelled in an amount corresponding to the amount of anti organism specific antibody present, and the amount of anti organism specific antibody present is measured.
2. A sero-diagnostic method for a disease capable of serodiagnosis and in which two different antibodies are produced in the blood at different stages of infection, in which method antigen derived from the pathogenic organism of the disease, is bonded to a plurality of support materials to yield organism antigen bonded support materials as solid phases, a plurality of test serum samples is caused to react simultaneously with said solid phases in a first reaction, said solid phases are equally divided into two groups, a labelled anti first specific antibody is caused to react with each of said solid phases in one group and a labelled anti second specific antibody is caused to react with each of said solid phases in the other group in a second reaction to yield reaction products labelled in amounts corresponding to the amounts of anti organism first specific antibody or total anti organism antibody and the respective amounts of anti organism first specific antibody and total anti organism antibody in the sample are measured thereby to indicate through the ratio between said amounts, the stage of infection with the disease.
3. A sero-diagnostic method as claimed in claim 1, wherein the disease is syphilis and said antigen is derived from Treponema pallidum, and wherein a labelled anti IgM specific antibody is caused to react with said solid phase in the second reaction to yield anti TP IgM antibody in an amount corresponding to the amount of anti TP IgM antibody present.
4. A sero-diagnostic method as claimed in claim 2, wherein the disease is syphilis and said antigen is derived from Treponema pallidum, and wherein a labelled anti IgM specific antibody is caused to react with each of said solid phases in one group and a labelled anti globulin antibody is caused to react with each of said solid phases in the other group in the second reaction thereby to yield reaction products labelled in amounts corresponding to the amounts of anti TP IgM antibody and total anti TP antibody present in the solid phases of the respective said groups.
5. A sero-diagnostic method as claimed in any one of claims 1 to 4, wherein a said solid phase is constituted by beads, a test tube, a tray for hemagglutination tests, a latex or Sepharose.
6. A sero-diagnostic method as claimed in any one of the preceding claims, wherein labelling of said antibodies is effected with an enzyme, a fluorescent material, a radioactive material, a latex or red blood cells.
This invention relates to a diagnostic method for diseases capable of serodiagnosis, in particular, but not exclusively syphilis, and especially diseases such as syphilis at the initial stages of infection.
The conventional diagnostic methods for syphilis may be summarised as follows. Serodiagnosis is carried out in which Treponema pallidum (hereinafter referred to as "TP"), which is the pathogenic organism of syphilis, is employed as the antigen. Recently, a very simple method utilising hemagglutination has been developed as a serodiagnosis of syphilis. This method is now in general use as a diagnostic method with high specificity and is almost free from non-specific reaction (i.e. false positive reaction). However, when carrying out the conventional diagnostic method employing hemagglutination, although it can be determined whether or not a person is infected with syphilis, it gives no information as to the stage of infection of syphilis, that is, the timing of the infection and the progress thereof. Recently it has been appreciated that even when a person is infected with syphilis in fact, that patient may not develop symptoms of actual syphilis or develops symptoms of syphilis latens because of the effects of medicines, such as antibiotics with which the patient is being dosed for purposes other than the treatment of syphilis.
Therefore, in order to treat syphilis most effectively it is extremely important from a clinical point of view to check accurately the infection of syphilis at the initial stages.
It is therefore an object of the present invention to provide a diagnostic method for diseases, such as syphilis, capable of serodiagnosis which can reliably ensure diagnosis of the disease at an initial stage of infection.
According to one aspect of the present invention there is provided a serodiagnostic method for a disease capable of serodiagnosis, in which method antigen derived from the pathogenic organism of the disease is bonded to a support material to yield organism antigen bonded support material as a solid phase, a test serum sample is caused to react with said solid phase in a first reaction, a labelled anti specific antibody is caused to react with said solid phase in a second reaction to yield a reaction product labelled in an amount corresponding to the amount of anti organism specific antibody present, and the amount of anti organism specific antibody present is measured.
This invention also provides a sero-diagnostic method for a disease capable of serodiagnosis and in which two different antibodies are produced in the blood at different stages of infection, in which method antigen derived from the pathogenic organism of the disease, is bonded to a plurality of support materials to yield organism antigen bonded support materials as solid phases, a plurality of test serum samples is caused to react simultaneously with said solid phases in a first reaction, said solid phases are equally divided into two groups, a labelled anti first specific antibody is caused to react with each of said solid phases in one group and a labelled anti second specific antibody is caused to react with each of said solid phases in the other group in a second reaction to yield reaction products labelled in amounts corresponding to the amounts of anti organism first specific antibody or total anti organism antibody and the respective amounts of anti organism first specific antibody and total anti organism antibody in the sample are measured thereby to indicate through the ratio between said amounts, the stage of infection with the disease.
Although the method of this invention will be described hereinafter with reference to serodiagnosis of syphilis, it is pointed out that it is not limited to serodiagnosis of this disease, but is applicable to all diseases capable of serodiagnosis.
In the immune response with respect to syphilis at the initial stages of its development, a first antibody, IgM (Immunoglobulin M) is first produced in the blood, and another antibody IgG (Immunoglobulin G), is then produced, the amount of the IgG antibody increasing with time. Therefore, to achieve diagnosis of syphilis at the initial infection stages, quantitative measurement of the specific IgM antibody for the antigen, which is the infection source of syphilis, is required. Moreover, by measuring the total amount of the specific antibody at the same time and calculating the ratio of the amount of the specific IgM antibody to that of the total specific antibody, the progress of the syphilis infection can be determined.
In the diagnostic method employing TP, which is now in general use, TP itself is caused to react with a test sample, and then with a fluorescent labelled anti IgM specific antibody, so that the degree of fluorescent dyeing of TP can be determined by visual inspection. This method is called "Fluorescent treponemal antibody test".
In another method of this kind for detecting syphilis in the initial infection stages, an anti IgM specific antibody is fixed to a support material and is then caused to react with a test sample. A labelled TP antigen is then applied to the test sample and the amount of the anti TP IgM antibody is then measured.
The former method, however, has shortcomings in that there is a problem in handling since TP itself is employed. Moreover, the anti IgM specific antibody cannot be measured quantitatively. The latter method has different shortcomings in that other IgM antibodies which will have increased in the blood due to infection complications and other forms of IgM which usually exist abundantly in the blood react with the anti TP IgM antibody, thereby affecting the sensitivity and accuracy of the measurement.
The present invention eliminates these conventional shortcomings and provides a diagnostic method for e.g. syphilis with high specificity, capable of enabling the quantities of the anti TP IgM antibody present and the total anti TP antibody to be measured simultaneously with high sensitivity and accuracy.
'When carrying out the method of the present invention, a variety of materials, such as beads, test tubes, trays for hemagglutination tests, latexes and Sepharose (Registered Trade Mark of Pharmacia Co.Ltd.) may be employed as support materials. The TP antibody is bonded to the desired support material and the TP antibody bonded support is employed as a solid phase. The solid phase and a test sample are allowed to interact with each other to achieve a first reaction whereby the TP antibody of each globulin class contained in the test sample becomes bonded to the solid phase. The solid phase is then washed with water. In the second reaction, anti IgM specific (IgM u-chain) antibody is labelled with, for example, enzymes, fluorescent materials, radioactive materials, latexes or red blood cells. The labelled anti IgM specific (IgM µ-chain) antibody is caused to react with the solid phase. As a result, an amount of labelled anti human IgM specific antibody, which is proportional to the amount of anti TP IgM antibody as the solid phase, is bonded to the solid phase. Therefore, by measuring quantitatively the labelled material, the amount of anti-TP IgM antibody can be measured.
The total anti-TP antibody present in a test sample may be determined if, in the above-mentioned first reaction, the test sample is caused to react with two solid phase samples at the same time. One of the solid phase samples is subjected to the second reaction as mentioned above, while the other solid phase sample is inter-reacted with labelled anti human IgG antibody. Since it contains the common antigen, the labelled anti IgG is bonded to the solid phase in accordance with the amount of the TP antibody including IgM that has been bonded to the solid phase, and hence the total anti TP antibody bonded to the solid phase can be measured.
Thus, it is possible to use one test sample, to determine simultaneously the amount of the anti TP IgM antibody and the amount of the total anti TP antibody. When the method of this invention is carried out at the initial stages of infection with syphilis, only the anti TP IgM antibody is detected, while the anti TP IgG antibody will be detected after the elapse of time after infection. Both the anti TP IgM antibody and the anti IgG antibody will be detected during an intermediate period.
In a reaction system in which the test sample contains only the anti TP IgM antibody, the anti TP IgM antibody ratio can be obtained if provision is made for obtaining the same result even if any of the labelled anti human IgM antibody and the labelled anti human globulin antibody is employed in the second reaction. In other words, if the quantity of each of the labelled antibodies is adjusted so as to indicate the same absorbance in the colouring reaction. To achieve this result a test sample is subjected to the first reaction and two labelled antibodies are used in the second reaction at the same time as follows:
wherein ODm indicates the absorbance in that case where the labelled anti IgM antibody is employed in the second reaction, while ODg indicates the absorbance in the case where the labelled anti globulin antibody is employed in the second reaction. Therefore, ODg corresponds to the amount of total anti TP antibody.
In this way, the ratio of anti TP IgM antibody to anti TP IgG antibody can be obtained and this ratio can be used for the examination of the development of syphilis.
The absolute quantities of the above-mentioned anti TP IgM antibody and the anti TP IgG antibody in the test sample can be obtained. By using IgM or IgG, with known concentration, a standard curve indicating the relationship between the concentration and absorbance, as in a conventional radio immunoassay, and enzyme immunoassay can be obtained. The absolute amount (ug/ml) of the antibodies can be obtained by use of the standard curve.
The following example illustrates this invention:TP antigen: Testicles of a rabbit inoculated with TP were extracted under aseptic conditions. TP proliferated in the testicles was isolated by use of 0.075 M solution of sodium citrate and then subjected to ultrasonic processing, centrifugal separation, dialysis and concentration, whereby TP antigen was obtained. The TP antigen was utilised with the following materials:
Labelled antibodies: Label-1 was prepared by labelling anti human IgM specific (IgM µ-chain) rabbit antibody with peroxidase (enzyme). Label-2 was prepared by labelling anti human IgG rabbit antibody with peroxidase. The labelling of peroxidase were performed in accordance with Nakane's Method.
Antigen-antibody reaction solution: Tris HC1 buffer solution (0.1 M) of pH 8.5 containing 2% by weight bovine serum albumin and 0.5 M with respect to sodium chloride was utilised.
Washing solution: Physiological saline solution was utilised as washing solution.
Enzyme reaction solution: Phosphoric acid-citric acid buffer solution (0.1 M, pH = 5.0) containing 2 mM of azino-bis-thiazoline sulphonic acid (ABTS) and 1 mM of H2 02 was employed as the substrate, and an 0.5% by weight aqueous solution of oxalic acid was employed as the reaction termination solution.
Five test samples (No.1 to No.5) were used, the samples being collected from human sera considered to be infected with syphilis and to be at the initial stages of infection.
For testing each sample, two solid phase beads were placed in a test tube with a diameter of 10 mm. 500 µl of the antigen-antibody reaction solution were added. 10 µl of serum under test were added and the mixture was allowed to stand at 37 0 C for two hours (First reaction). The reaction solution was removed and the solid beads were washed with the washing solution three times. The two solid phase beads were placed in respective test tubes
The antigen-antibody reaction solution prepared above was added to Label-1 and Label-2 to prepare suspensions of Label-1 and Label-2, having the optimum concentration. 500 µl of the suspension of Label-1 were poured into one solid phase bead-containing test tube and 500 µl of the suspension of Label-2 were poured into the other test tube containing the other solid phase bead. After these test tubes had been allowed to stand at 37 0 C for one hour, reaction solution was removed from each of the test tubes.
Each solid phase bead was washed four times with the washing solution. 1.0 ml of the enzyme reaction solution was then added to each test tube and reaction was allowed to proceed at ambient temperature for 2 hours. 1.0 ml of the reaction termination solution then was added to the reaction mixture. The absorbance of each reaction mixture was measured with light having a wavelength of 420 nm. The absorbance measured by use of a control was subtracted for the absorbance measured by use of Label-1 or Label-2. The amount of anti TP IgM antibody or the amount of the total anti TP antibody corresponded to the absorbance and enabled the anti TP IgM antibody ratio (%) to be calculated. The results are shown in the following table:
The results show that Sample No.5 was at the initial stage of infection, and that Sample No.1 was infected, but with some time having elapsed after infection. In the cases of Samples No.2, No.3 and No.4, a longer time had passed after infection.

Legionnaires' disease is a serious lung disease which is caused by breathing in aerosols infected with the bacteria Legionella Pneumophila. Of those who are infected up to 30% will die.
The bacteria got its name in 1976, when 4.000 US. Legionnaires went to the 58. American Legion Convention in Philadelphia. At the conference 221 legionnaires were infected with the bacteria whereof 34 died. This was the first diagnosed outbreak of legionnaires disease.
Legionnaires' disease has the same symptoms like other forms of pneumonia, which makes it hard to diagnose. Symptoms are high fever, chills, coughs, muscle aches and headaches. Chest x-rays are needed to find the pneumonia caused by the bacteria, as well as blood or urine to find evidence of the bacteria in the body.
To catch the disease the bacteria must be inhaled. Infection occurs after inhaling a fine aerosol of bacteria contaminated water droplets. The infection rate is typically 5%. The fatality rate is up to 30% of those who are infected. Typical sources of infection are showers, cooling towers, spas, whirlpools, swimming pools and water fountains. The bacteria do not spread from one person to another.
Legionnaires' disease is a serious disease. However, most cases are treated successfully with antibiotics, and healthy people usually recover from infection. The symptoms usually begin 2 to 14 days after being exposed to the bacteria.
A milder infection caused by the same type of Legionella bacteria is called Pontiac Fever. The symptoms of Pontiac Fever usually last for 2 to 5 days and may also include fever, headaches, and muscle aches. However Pontiac fever is not lethal.

With Missouri's economy historically driven by industry, a vast number of workers in the state have faced the risk of asbestos exposure since the turn of the 20th century. Most of those affected are employees in Missouri's manufacturing and chemical industries which use the toxic mineral for its natural resistance to heat, chemicals and electricity. Miners, specifically those working in southeast Missouri's Lead Belt, also experience considerable exposure risks when excavating or handling asbestos-contaminated mineral ore. The inhalation of airborne asbestos fibers is proven to cause serious respiratory illnesses including asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma.
A longtime fixture in St. Louis, Missouri, the automobile industry is known to have exposed assembly plant workers to asbestos contained in brakes and clutches. Asbestos is also a common construction material found in many homes and municipal buildings including schools, post offices, courthouses and firehouses.
Although most cases of asbestos-related disease are caused by workplace exposure, Missourians can also come in contact with natural asbestos that forms along the St. Francois Mountain Range. The highest concentrations of naturally occurring asbestos are found in St. Francois County and Iron County. Asbestos-related diseases claimed at least 735 lives in Missouri from 1999 to 2013.Treatment Centers in Missouri

Missouri's chemical, manufacturing and mining industries are important drivers of the state economy. In 2010 and 2011, chemicals, machinery and minerals were among the top five exporting sectors in Missouri. These industries are typically associated with workplace asbestos exposure in the state. Exposure to asbestos and the diseases that may result are a common occupational risk for manufacturing workers and miners in the St. Francois Mountains region.
GAF Corporation. a branch of the German chemical company I.G. Dyes, faced decades of asbestos lawsuits after acquiring Ruberoid Corporation in 1965. Ruberoid operated a manufacturing plant in St. Louis that used asbestos to make roofing products. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health tested the St. Louis Ruberoid facility in 1967 and 1969 and found dangerous concentrations of asbestos present in air samples. The purchase of this roofing supplies manufacturer included ownership of an asbestos mine in Vermont where workers developed medical conditions caused by asbestos exposure. As a result, the mine was closed down less than a decade later in 1975. Also at risk for exposure were workers who manufactured and installed Ruberoid's roof shingles, siding and insulation, because many of the company's construction products contained asbestos materials.
In 1982, the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District attempted to clean the creek bank, but stopped shortly after beginning because they realized the cost was too extensive. When the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) hired a company to assess the site in 1992, testing of exposed material revealed it contained upwards of 85 percent chrysotile asbestos and 15 percent crocidolite asbestos. In 1993, Maline Creek flooded and overran the asbestos waste pile, allowing the distribution of asbestos-contaminated debris throughout the flood zone.
Though manufacturing employment in Missouri has been on the decline for decades, the industry stabilized in early 2010 and notable growth has been reported in advanced manufacturing companies that produce commercial machinery, basic chemicals, pesticide and fertilizer.Municipal Buildings
Exposure to asbestos has also threatened the health of workers at Missouri municipal buildings, typically because of poor asbestos management during renovations. In November 2011, a longtime employee of Jackson County Courthouse received a $10 million settlement in a lawsuit filed over improper asbestos handling procedures, marking the largest asbestos settlement in Missouri. Hickory Hills School in Springfield may have been another site of asbestos exposure. An environmental assessment revealed 35 different construction materials in the school with detectable concentrations of asbestos. Violations of federal asbestos standards were also documented at Lambert St. Louis International Airport and several fire district buildings, including sites in Hannibal and Beverly Hills.Natural Asbestos Deposits
Some locations in southeastern Missouri contain natural deposits of asbestos, but the fibrous mineral is relatively scarce in the state. Nearly all asbestos deposits in Missouri form along the St. Francois Mountains, a remote region atop the Ozark Plateau that contains some of the state's most unique natural features. The highest asbestos concentrations are found in St. Francois County and adjacent Iron County. Several former mines in this area, including an unnamed prospect in Mark Twain National Forest, a manganese mine in Winona and a small copper mine in Arcadia, contain documented asbestos occurrences. While natural asbestos is typically harmless, mining activity and other disturbances can disrupt the deposits and release dangerous mineral fibers into the air. This can pose health threats to miners as well as surrounding populations if fibers are inhaled.Jobsites with Known Asbestos Exposure:
A tornado with winds exceeding 200 miles per hour touched down in Joplin, Missouri on May 22, 2011, destroying approximately 8,000 structures and claiming the lives of more than 150 residents. Disaster response efforts conducted by the EPA under the coordination of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) were still ongoing seven months later. Among other health issues, the EPA was particularly concerned about asbestos exposure for any workers involved in the cleanup.
According to the EPA, asbestos is commonly found in buildings constructed between 1930 and 1950, and in wall patching compounds and textured paints manufactured before 1977. Because many structures damaged by the tornado contain asbestos materials, the EPA has taken special measures to ensure cleanup workers are safe. Unless they are protected by masks and asbestos is separated from other debris and properly disposed of, workers exposed to asbestos are at risk for respiratory disease and cancer.
The City of Joplin ordered the demolition of 118 heavily damaged homes whose owners failed to contact the city with plans to clear out the remaining debris. Before the city condemns the houses and hires a contractor to safely raze them, certified asbestos inspectors were hired to report any asbestos found on site.Illegal Asbestos Disposal at Missouri Firehouse
In 2010, impeachment charges were filed against Fire Chief Tim Carter for fraud, dishonesty and inability to follow orders in regards to illegal asbestos abatement procedures at his Hannibal, Missouri fire district building. Although Carter refuted the charges and told the Missouri Department of Natural Resources he was unaware that asbestos was improperly removed, it later came to light this was not true.
In lieu of federal safety procedures like testing for asbestos before abatement, Carter ordered several firefighters to remove asbestos-contaminated tiles, mastic and insulation without the necessary training or safety equipment. Further, Carter did not disclose that the materials contained asbestos or that removal procedures could place his firefighters at substantial risk for asbestos-related diseases like mesothelioma. Carter was put on paid administrative leave in November 2009 and his appointment as chief formally expired September 23, 2010. Though the impeachment charges were never proven and the city charter allowed him to return to the fire department, Carter chose to resign from his position.Missouri Asbestos Lawsuits
The following asbestos lawsuits went to trial in Missouri and some resulted in verdicts and another in a settlement. Many asbestos lawsuits filed in Missouri never see a court date because plaintiffs and defendants often settle outside of court.Take Our Information Home with You
