LBL Currents -- July 1, 1994

Bevatron brain treatment transferred to Loma Linda

By David Gilbert,

LBL has signed a two-year agreement to transfer its heavy-ion radiosurgical technology for treating a life-threatening brain disorder to the Proton Cancer Treatment Center at Loma Linda University Medical Center (LLUMC).

The technology uses proton beams to treat arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), congenital tangles of abnormal blood vessels in the brain which can, without treatment, cause severe hemorrhages, seizures and neurological impairment.

"The agreement will assure that patients with surgically inoperable AVMs will once again have access to heavy-ion radiosurgical treatment, the best available therapy for this potentially lethal or disabling disorder," said Richard Levy, lead scientist of the heavy-ion radiosurgery program at LBL. The program was curtailed in 1992 when federal budget cut-backs forced the closure of LBL's Bevatron, the accelerator used to generate the therapeutic beams.

It is estimated that some 300,000 individuals in North America suffer from AVMs. Symptoms typically appear before age 40 and occur in otherwise healthy young people.

DOE's Heavy-Ion Radiosurgery program began in 1954 when John Lawrence first used proton beams at LBL's 184-inch Synchrocyclotron for pituitary gland irradiation of patients with breast cancer. In 1980, Jacob Fabrikant established the AVM radiosurgery program at LBL, which has been led since 1993 by Levy. Under their guidance, and with DOE support, the program has achieved international recognition.

The closure of the Bevatron after the treatment of some 2500 patients marked the end of nearly 40 years of pioneering radiation medicine research at LBL. "Results for AVM patients treated at LBL were excellent," Levy said. "Cure rates greater than 85 percent were achieved for small AVMs, and with a low risk of complications."

Patients will now be treated at LLUMC's specialized proton irradiation facility, the first hospital-based particle accelerator facility in the world. The accelerator generates proton beams which are directed with magnet-controlled conduits into any of four treatment rooms. The patient rests on a treatment couch with his or her head secured in a customized mask and frame. Typically, three or four proton beams are focused on the AVM from different angles to obliterate abnormal vessels and remove the risk of future brain hemorrhage.

The actual beam treatment lasts less than one minute, and most patients are able to return to work or other activities immediately after the procedure. The AVM requires two to three years to respond fully to the irradiation.

Levy and James Slater of LLUMC's Department of Radiation Medicine are coordinating the collaborative effort with Gary Steinberg and Michael Marks of the Departments of Neurosurgery and Radiology at Stanford University Medical Center. Key scientific personnel include LBL's Kenneth Frankel, head medical physicist in the radiosurgery program, and LLUMC's Reinhard Schulte, designer of the patient immobilization system.

Said Energy Secretary Hazel O'Leary, "This collaboration and others like it demonstrate that Department of Energy technology is making a difference in medical research. The benefit will be to help ease the suffering of those who have been awaiting treatment for this deadly brain disorder."

LBL summer lecture series

LBL physicist Jay Marx will begin the 1994 Summer Lecture Series at noon on Wednesday, July 13, in the 50 auditorium with a presentation on "Recreating the Early Universe in the Laboratory." Marx directs the STAR (Solenoidal Tracker At RHIC) project, the first experiment scheduled at the RHIC (Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider) at Brookhaven National Laboratory.

"The goal of STAR is to replicate the conditions of the early universe and observe the formation and the properties of the quark-gluon plasma in ultra-relativistic collisions," Marx says. The RHIC is designed to produce quark-gluon plasma by colliding gold nuclei head-on at energies of 20 million million electron volts. Marx will discuss the techniques and goals of the RHIC facility and the STAR project.

Lab employees and guests are invited to attend the lecture series. For more information, contact the Public Information Department at X4015.

Science for Support Staff lecture

Ronald Gronsky, Professor of Materials Science and Mineral Engineering at UC Berkeley, will speak at the next Science for Support Staff lecture at 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 21, in the Bldg. 66 auditorium. His talk is titled "Materials Selection and Design: Making the Right Choices."

Among other topics, Gronsky will talk about why manufacturers use steel to make some products and plastics for others (it isn't always obvious, he says) and what roles environmental laws play in determining directions in materials engineering.

The lecture series is sponsored by the Materials Sciences Division. All employees are invited to attend.

Vendor catalogs on compact disk

Scientists, engineers or anyone else looking for the right part can probably find it in Bldg. 46A, room 1123. This is where the Engineering Division keeps a CD-ROM database with more than 50,000 vendor catalogs listing millions of mechanical parts and electronic components.

The service is available to all employees. There will be a trainer at the database from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, July 6, to instruct employees on how to use the system effectively.

For more information call Keith Franck at X5382 or Joyce Pfeiffer at X7663.

Watson makes five-gallon donor list

By Brennan Kreller,

Lynellen Watson of the badge office recently reached the five-gallon mark for her 40th blood donation at the Blood Bank of the Alameda-Contra Costa Medical Association. In recognition, her name is now engraved on a trophy in the Blood Bank's Oakland office.

Watson began monthly platelet donations shortly after the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989. "It occurred to me after the earthquake that the need for blood would be very acute, and that I could help," she says. "I donated whole blood at first, but then I learned how easily and frequently I could donate platelets. I've continued doing so ever since."

Platelets are fragments of megakaryocytes (large bone marrow cells) in the blood that aid in clotting. While working in a hospital pediatric ward, Watson learned how important platelet donations were to children with leukemia and cancer. "As an infant, I needed a transfusion for pernicious anemia," she says. "Not only is it a good feeling that I might be helping others stay alive, but I feel like I am giving something back."

Although the platelet pheresis procedure can take longer than a whole blood donation, Watson says she doesn't mind. "The Blood Bank takes steps to make you comfortable," she says. "I've seen several of my favorite movies while donating. They are very good at making everything clear to you, and they will give you a local anesthetic if you ask." Since becoming a regular donor, Watson has also enlisted in the Bone Marrow Registry and has been found to be procedure-tolerant for marrow transplant donation.

While visiting the Blood Bank office in Oakland, Watson was pleased to discover that hers was not the only LBL name on the 5-gallon trophy. The Alameda-Contra Costa Medical Association holds regular blood drives here at the Lab, and other employees make additional visits to the donor centers as well. The next blood drive at LBL is scheduled for Thursday, July 14.

Health Notes brought to you by LBL's Health Services Department

Be part of the heart--donate blood

Many LBL employees donate blood at the annual Lab blood drive. However, the need for blood has become so critical this year that everyone is urged to roll up their sleeves.

In January, the nation's blood supply dropped to the lowest level in a decade, and there was a threat of blood rationing. The supply at the Blood Bank of the Alameda-Contra Costa County Medical Association (ACCMA), which supplies blood to 28 area hospitals, was also at an all-time low.

Blood donors are at the heart of many medical services: The most advanced medical technology is useless without caring individuals who donate blood. Three hundred donors are required every day to maintain an adequate blood supply in the East Bay. Donors of all ethnic backgrounds are needed. If you cannot give blood, you still help by encouraging others to donate. Everyone can be a part of the heart.

To avoid blood shortages in the future, Health Services urges everyone to give blood at the LBL blood drive on Thursday, July 14 from 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Bldg. 70A, Room 3377. For more information, call the benefits office at X6403.

Interested donors may make an appointment at the Blood Bank of the ACCMA at 1-800-841-1986, X6270.

In memoriam: Ann Chamberlain Birge

Ann Birge, wife of former Associate Director and head of the Physics Division Robert Birge, and sister of LBL Nobel Laureate Owen Chamberlain, died on Sunday, June 19, of a ruptured aneurysm of the aorta. She was 69.

Birge was on her way home from a meeting of the American Association of University Professors in Washington, DC. She had retired four days earlier from the California State University at Hayward, where she had taught as a professor of physics for 29 years.

Birge received her Ph.D. in physics from Harvard, where she met her husband. They married in 1948. Before joining the faculty at Hayward, she was a research physicist at Donner Lab, where she studied the effects of heavy ion radiation on yeast.

She was president of the California Conference of the American Association of University Professors and outgoing president of the Hayward chapter of the California Faculty Association. In 1993, she was selected "Outstanding Berkeley Woman" by the City of Berkeley.

She is survived by her husband, her brother, three children, Margit Ann Birge, Bettine Birge, and Norman Owen Birge, and one grandson.

A memorial will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 10, at the Men's Faculty Club at UC Berkeley. Donations in her memory may be made to the Ann C. Birge Memorial Fund in Physics, Cal State Education Foundation, University Advancement, California State University at Hayward, 25800 Carlos Bee Blvd., Hayward, CA 94542. The money will help support readers in the Hayward physics department.

Open meeting on Lab travel

The travel process improvement team (PIT) will conduct an open meeting on travel issues at the Lab from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, July 6, at the Bldg. 50 auditorium. All employees with concerns about Lab travel are encouraged to attend.

The travel PIT--one of several process improvement teams formed recently at LBL--is evaluating Lab travel policies and procedures to enhance customer service and efficiency.

Employees who are unable to attend may forward comments to any member of the travel PIT. Members include Ron Madaras (chair), Steve Bakaley, Andre Bell, Julie Blickle, Keith Jackson, Carol Laramore, Maxine Redfearn, Lynn Stenvold, Bob Stokstad and Betty Strausbaugh.



Simone and André Anders, research physicists in the Plasma Applications Group in AFRD, were jointly awarded the prestigious Chatterton Award at the International Symposium on Discharges and Electrical Insulation in Vacuum. The symposium was held in late May aboard a ship on the Volga River between Moscow and St. Petersburg in the former Soviet Union. The researchers were recognized for their "significant contributions as young scientists to the understanding of vacuum breakdown and discharge phenomena." Adding to their honor, the Anderses have been selected to host the next ISDEIV in July 1996.


Mark Levine of the Energy and Environment Division will participate in a roundtable discussion on global warming and energy efficient alternatives at the UC Berkeley Museum of Art, Science & Culture at Blackhawk on Sunday, July 10, at 2 p.m. The discussion is one of the museum's summertime "Greenhouse Earth Programs." The event is free with admission to the museum.

Save the earth--with worms

Many people living in urban areas do not have access to organic matter such as yard clippings that is required for composting. There is an alternative for these folks--worm bins.

Worm bins are an effective way to reduce the amount of refuse a household sends to landfills. The simple devices use worms to digest food and paper waste. In turn, the worms produce vitamin-rich castings which can fortify planting soil.

The County of Alameda Home Composting Program will hold a worm bin raising function from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 14, at the grassy area by the cafeteria. Participants will receive a starter kit, which includes a wood worm bin, worms, and a book. (A fee of $10 will be charged to cover the cost of the book.) Employees interested in participating may sign up with Shelley Worsham at X6123.

ATM construction

The automatic teller machine near the cafeteria will be upgraded from July 11 to July 22. During the upgrade, the machine will be open from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 a.m. The machine will be closed all day on July 20.

A crew will modify the ATM and the area around it to comply with the American Disabilities Act. This will include modifying the kiosk entrance and lowering the ATM. Lighting around the machine will also be enhanced for night safety.
