THREE OF FOUR ARMY SOLIDERS ALLEDGED TO HAVE KILLED THEIR WIVES THIS SUMMER ARE SPECIAL OPERATIONS TROOPS WHO RECENTLY RETURNED FROM AFGHANISTAN. INVESTIGATORS ARE LOOKING INTO WHETHER THE ANTI-MALARIA DRUG, LARIAM, MAY HAVE CAUSED THEIR VIOLENT ATTACKS. C ol. Robert DeFraites/Army Doctor: Right now, the connection, if theres any between lariam and these deaths is really uncertain. It doesnt seem, though, right now, to be the common link that were really looking for. (:07) Teri Okita/Reporting: The army says its looking at everything, including deployment stress which comes after being separated from their families for long periods of time. BUT, FOR CRITICS, THE LINK TO LARIAM ISNT SURPRISING. ITS REPORTED SIDE-EFFECTS INCLUDE AGITATION, AGGRESSION, AND DEPRESSION.
Sue Rose/Larium Action USA: The most recent study showed that 29-percent of the people who take lariam will suffer a neuro-psychiatric side-effect.
Thats a very, very high rate. THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION PUTS THE INCIDENCE OF SERIOUS SIDE-EFFECTS AT FIVE IN 100-THOUSAND, AND THE DRUGS MAKER, HOFFMAN-LAROCHE, STANDS BY ITS PRODUCT SAYING ITS EFFECTIVE AND SAFE FOR MOST EVERYONE. LARIAM IS THE ANTI-MALARIA DRUG OF CHOICE FOR THE ARMY AND FOR MILLIONS OF TRAVELLERS BECAUSE ITS TAKEN ONCE-A-WEEK INSTEAD OF DAILY. BUT, AFTER THIS SUMMERS STRING OF KILLINGS, IF THERE IS A LINK, IT MAY PROMPT THE MILITARY TO TAKE ANOTHER LOOK. TERI OKITA, CBS NEWS, THE PENTAGON.))

Church officials say they're replacing the current review panel with an independent board of seven laypersons.
They're also creating a separate investigative team.
They say the changes were made to comply with new standards established in June by the U-S Conference of Catholic Bishops.
In the last month, the Richmond diocese has removed two former priests following allegations of sexual abuse of minors.
Half of the members of the current review panel resigned over Bishop Sullivan's handling of a third case.
Officials say they think the changes will help the church move past the recent controversies.

SOT: DR. DAN SMITH/FORSYTH INSITUTE

the vaccine is targeted to an enzyme that the bacteria that causes tooth decay produces. and the idea is that once it produces an antibody in the saliva, that antibody inactivates that enzyme, therefore the bacteria cannot accumulate in the plaque and cause tooth decay

EXPERTS SAY THE VACCINE WOULD BE ADMINSTERED THROUGH A NASAL SPRAY TO CHILDREN ONE TO TWO YEARS OLD.. BEFORE THE BACTERIA WHICH CAUSES CAVITIES, HAS A CHANCE TO DEVELOP IN THEIR TEETH.
RESEARCHERS ARE NOW TESTING THE VACCINE ON ANIMALS AND HAVE CONDUCTED LIMITED CLINICAL TRIALS ON COLLEGE STUDENTS THAT SHOWED THAT IT WAS EFFECTIVE AND SAFE.
