Lip implant tissue link with mad cow disease
By Sam Lister
One in six cosmetic surgery firms may be closed as fears for patients
health prompt a clampdown

FEARS that cosmetic implants used in lips and cheeks could trigger vCJD,
the human form of mad cow disease, have prompted the Government to
launch an investigation.

Sir Liam Donaldson, the Chief Medical Officer, said that experts were
examining the possibility that tissue implants such as collagen could
transmit blood-borne diseases such as variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease
if contaminated. Although no evidence of such transmission has been
discovered, the committee on microbiological safety of blood and tissues
believes there might be a risk.

Societys obsession with high cheekbones and luscious lips have prompted
thousands of Britons to resort to implants to enhance their features.

Mockingly termed the trout pout, a collagen lip injection is one of
the most common treatments, which costs as little as £300. Rumoured
recipients of collagen, a fibrous protein which bonds tissue in the
body, include celebrities such as Liz Hurley, Kylie Minogue and Leslie Ash.

The expert groups study of a range of aesthetic fillers, which are
often made from human or bovine tissue, had already found samples
containing material from dead bodies and birds, Sir Liam added.

The investigation is part of an overhaul of the cosmetic treatments
industry, designed to root out the growing number of cowboys offering
unregulated procedures such as Botox injections, implants and chemical
skin peels. Under new rules, rogue clinics will be shut and
practitioners prosecuted in an attempt to improve patient safety. As
many as a sixth of providers could be forced to close.

The move follows a surge in demand for cosmetic procedures, some of
which are avail-able at not only clinics but also at hairdressing and
beauty salons and even as gifts administered at peoples homes. Sir Liam
said some providers were illegally advertising Botox, which is a
prescription drug.

From next April, legal action will be taken against any providers who
are not registered with the Healthcare Commission, the health watchdog,
and fail to comply with its regulations. Of the 20,000 providers in
England, identified through medical lists, advertisements, phone
directories and the internet, just 100 are registered and subject to the
commissions annual inspection. It believes at least 15 per cent would
not meet necessary standards.

The Governments hard line is in response to reports published yesterday
by the commission and the experts group headed by Harry Cayton, the
national director for Patients and the Public. Both reports call for
tighter controls of a rapidly expanding industry.

Mr Cayton said the group had found a diverse range of sources of
implant tissue. Many fillers did not fall under any type of regulation
because they used human tissue products.

The Government said it would follow all the recommendations, revealed by
The Times this week, including: mandatory specialist training for
doctors and nurses, who must be registered with a professional body;
clearer definitions of the procedures and what they involve; and a
clampdown on cut-price deals. The commission is to carry out more spot
checks on clinics.

Cosmetic procedures are a rapidly growing area of private healthcare,
Sir Liam said. Some (people) are disappointed with the outcome but a
minority can suffer serious harm or disfigurement.We must ensure we
properly protect patients safety by improving the training, regulation
and information provided.

Simon Gillespie, head of operations at the commission, said that it had
found there was good compliance with current regulations among cosmetic
surgery providers, especially among larger operators. But we did find
and have concerns about the number of organisations that did not fall
under the scope or regulations(where) there could be some increases in
risk to patients, and patients did not realise that they were receiving
a medical procedure.

Subject: FAT LIPS/SHINY HAIR/Creams (Cosmetics) PRETTY WOMEN $ MOVIE
STARS $ MAD COW DISEASE ...

Greetings ALL,

was reading a 'smut' magazine about the 'babes'
and came across this article about the different
movie stars 'fat lips' (collagen injections).
something in the article caught my eye. ONE
was Collagen and the other was HASK PLACENTA
No-Rinse Treatment. (if containing animal tissues,
and then running down into the eye's, seems
like a potential transmission route, if you
consider kuru and the fact transmission of
that TSE agent via topical applications {rubbing
of organs etc on skin, cuts etc...TSS}).

""Attention, Goldie Hawn: You might want to forget
about more collagen infections for that full-lipped
look. Collagen for the procedure usually comes
from cows -- as in "mad cow disease". So what's a
girl to do? Some docs are using an acid found in
roosters' combs instead of collagen. Others use
collagen from 'ELITE' herds that don't mix with
common bovines. And one scientist is awaiting
approval for a human collagen from the foreskin
of infant boys -- further proof that beauty is
only skin deep""-- 'The National Enquirer' 5/6/01

are these babes in far a 'rude' awakening. firstly,
these so called 'ELITE' herds they speak of, are
what they call, 'tissue donor herds', that are
suppose to be fed 'only' certain products that
_do not_ include ruminant feed of any sort.
AND from the exact question i asked at the
infamous '50 STATE EMERGENCY CONFERENCE CALL'
of Jan, 9, 2001, sadly we find, there is
absolutley, NO SUCH THING. It was all a joke.
The 'partial' ruminant to ruminant feed ban
of August 4, 1997, never was enforced, and most
knew nothing about it, and/or chose to ignore
it.

RUMINANT-DERIVED MATERIAL IN COSMETICS

The Department of Health wishes to reinforce the advice given to the
Cosmetics Industry in February 1990 (ref.)

It is possible that some ruminant-derived
materials are being incorporated into
cosmetics or beauty treatments which are
then marketed as 'natural
products.

The particular materials that should not
under _ANY_ circumstances be used in the
manufacturer of cosmetics or beauty treatments
are:

1. bovine (cattle)-derived offals, or proteins
derived from these offals. These offals are:
brain, spinal cord, spleen, thymus, tonsils,
intestines of Bovine offal (prohibition)
regulations

2. ovine (sheep)-derived offals and ovine placenta.

In view of the current uncertainty about the
incidence of infection with spongiform
encephalopathy agents it is probably advisable
that these recommendations apply to the above
ruminant-derived materials of ANY COUNTRY OF ORIGIN...

31 October 1991

91/10.31/9.1

It also emerged from the 16- volume
report of Lord Phillips, released on
Thursday, that people who bought anti-aging
cream may have exposed themselves to BSE
unwittingly.

The report describes their use as a potential
pathway to infection because some creams may have
included cattle brain placenta.
