       Smoking moms tied to behavior disorders

EAST LANSING, Mich.,-- Michigan State University researchers
said smoking during pregnancy may have long-term effects on
the behavior of children. The researchers' study, 
published in the American Academy of Child and Adolescent
Psychiatry, included 700 children ages 6 though 17 rand-
omly selected from groups with low birth weight and high
birth weight, ABC News reported Thursday.  The research-
ers found that smoking during pregnancy had an influence
on the development of Oppositional Defiant Disorder --
a syndrome marked by frequent temper loss, an argu-
mentative disposition, vindictiveness and spitefulness
-- and later Conduct Disorder, a more advanced form of
ODD that includes more serious behaviors. The study said
the results tied to smoking were independent of birth
weight and other factors, including economic status of
the mother and drug and alcohol use. The researchers 
suggested women avoid smoking for the entirety of their

     Pregnant women fail to relieve back pain

ST. LOUIS, -- Less than 10 percent of
pregnant women with musculoskeletal back pain were
satisfied with the symptom relief they obtained, a U.S.
study found.  The study, published in the Journal of
Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, says despite
the high prevalence of musculoskeletal pain during preg-
nancy, few women in underserved populations receive treat-
ment for their lower back pain. In addition, the research-
ers at Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis and the 
Washington University School of Medicine in Seattle found 
some 80 percent of women reporting sleep disturbances had 
back pain, and three-quarters of the women with pain also
used pain medication. "We saw a direct association between
sleep deficiency and back pain," the study said. "These
results raise the question of whether or not the high
incidence of pain medication use reflects a lack of
education about potential risks of medications, or an
inability for pregnant women to cope with pain."

       New brain cancer treatment developed

ANN ARBOR, Mich.,-- U.S. medical scientists have developed
a new treatment regimen for treating glioblastoma multiforme
 cancer, the most aggressive form of adult brain tumors.
The University of Michigan-developed treatment uses a type
of radiation called intensity-modulated radiation therapy.
That allows physicians to target the radiation to the most
aggressive parts of the tumor and spare adjacent normal 
critical structures. The radiation is combined with a type
of chemotherapy called temozolomide, which has been shown 
to improve survival in this type of brain tumor. Researchers
said their results are preliminary but of 30 patients treat-
ed with the new protocol, 20 have been followed for at least
12 months and 16 have lived longer than 12 months. That, 
said the researchers, is significant progress for a disease
that usually kills in less than a year. "Novel imaging is a
very important new tool for the treatment of high grade 
gliomas," said Dr. Christina Tsien, lead investigator of the
study. "It will allow us to better define the target and to
define aggressive areas of the tumor where higher radiation
doses can be safely delivered, in combination with effect-
ive chemotherapies."
