Secretary Richard ot hweiker Announces Program HHS Secretary Richard S. Schweiker announced a propo- sed warning label and a public awareness program, including radiffanouncements, to alert parents that Reye Syndrome, a rare but life - threatening dis- ease, has been reported to be linked to the use of aspirin and other salicylate- containing dr- ugs by children under 16 years of age who have flu and ch- icken pox. Outlining his plans before a House subcommittee hearing i to- day, Schweiker said a key part of. the program will be radio public service announcements that will reach parents and physicians before the next flu season. " This public educat- ion campaign is vital", Schwe- iker said, " because label ch- anges take time and we must address products already in retail stores and homes. We have to alert parents as qu- ickly as possible" In addition to aspirin, many common over - the - counter and prescription drugs, inclu- ding some popular cough and cold remedies, .contain salicyl- ates. The Reye Syndrome aware- ness campaign will enlist the help of consumer and health professional groups to circulate information to the public. Qu- estion - and - answer broch- ures will be sent to physicia- ns and pharmacists. Also a feature article on the subject will be published in the October issue of the FDA Consumer magazine. That article, along with a column about the pro- blem written by Surgeon Gen- eral C. Everett Keep, M.D., will be made available to newspa- pers around the nation. For nonprescription drugs, the warning label would read : " Warning: This product con- tains a salicylat. Do not use in persons under 16 years of age with flu or chicken pox unless directed by your doctor. The use of salicylates to treat these conditions has been reported to be associated with a rare but serious childhood disease called Reye Syndrome." For prescription drugs, the warning would appear in the labeling for physicians and would read: " Drugs of this class, salicylates, have been "N reported tobe associated with the development of Reye Syn- drome in children under 16 years of age with chicken pox, 'influenza and influenza - like infections." Reye Syndrome is charact- erized by vomiting and leth- argy which may progress to delirium and coma in child- ren who are recovering from , .viral infections, particularly in- fluenza or chicken pox. About 600 to 1,200 cases occur each year in the U.S., most bet- ween the ages of 5 and 16. Death results in 20 to 30 per cent of the cases and permanent brain dam- age in many others. The U. S. Centers for dis- ease Control earlier this year , reported on four studies ( one each from Arizona and Ohio and two from Michigan) in wh- ich the use of salicylates and salicylate - containing drugs during an earlier viral illness was more common in patients who developed Reye Syndrome than in matched controls. An FDA working group went to the states and audited raw data from three of four case I control studies conducted by state health departments ( two in Michigan and one in Ohio) and performed an independent analysis of the salicylates and their association with Reye :Syndrome. The American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on In- fectieus Diseases also review- ed the data and in the June 1982 issue of Pediatrics, its official Journal, issued a statement advising that the use of sap icylates should be avoided in children suffering from influe- nza or chicken pox. Schweiker announced June 4 that medical experts had con- cluded that a warning to phy- sicians and parents was warr- anted. At the direction of the Se- cretary, FDH issued a Drug Bulletin with information on Re- ye Syndrome and salicylate use to more than one million heal- th professionals. Also, Sur- geon General Keep has already issued an advisory on this issue to the health care community. Heather Dawn Basham, dau- ghter of Harold and Ruth Ann ( Ballard) Basham of Ellison Ri- dge, in Jumping Branch cele- brated her 6th birthday on October 7, 1982.
