 EXPERTS TO OFFER PERSPECTIVE ON SILICONE-GEL
 BREAST IMPLANT LINK TO AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE
 Reporters covering the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's advisory panel on silicone gel-filled breast implants are invited to attend a media roundtable on-site during the first day of hearings. It will be led by a nationally recognized expert on autoimmune disease, which has emerged as the agency's primary concern during its review of the devices.
 Dr. Noel Rose, chairman of immunology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health, will provide perspective on the testimony presented on the possible link between silicone-gel breast implants and autoimmune disease. A veteran of similar proceedings, Rose served last October as chairman of another FDA panel charged with evaluating the relationship between collagen and autoimmune disease.
