(C) IMS Ntw York Times Nw Strvict WASHINGTON - A government program has been launched to develop a vaccine against bacterial pneumonia, a much underestimated disease that may kill 25.000 Americans a year. The target of the vaccine is the germ called Diplococcus pneumoniae, once one of the most dreaded of infectious agents. After the advent of penicillin around 1943. the germ all but vanished from the public and professional mind, but studies have proved that it did not vanish from the human throat and lungs. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, sponsor of the vaccine development program, estimates that 15.000 to 25.000 deaths are caused every year by pneumonia involving this species of bacteria. At a news conference today. Dr. Edwin M. Lerner II. an officer of the institute, said a preventive vaccine might be licensed as early as 1970. It would be directed against several of the 12 types of Diplococcus pneumoniae believed to be the most important causes of pneumonia in man. Dr. Dorland J. Davis, director of the institute, which is a unit of the National Institutes of Health, said about 500.000 pneumonia patients in several states will be studied to determine which strains of the bacterium are the most prevalent. The study will also help determine what population groups could be most effectively protected by vaccine. Under sponsorship by the institute. Eli Lily and Co. is preparing to produce vaccines against each of the 12 bacterial types. It is hoped that many or all of the 12 can be combined in one vaccine. Diplococcus pneumoniae bacteria are also known ass pneumococci. The pneumonia they cause is therefore called pneumoccocal pneumonia. Dr. Robert Austrian, an internationally known authority on the disease, said pencillin is highly effective against it.' But, he added, some patients seem to be so devastated by the attack that they die even though the infection itself can be knocked out by the drug. OPEN DAILY 10 A.M. to 6 P.M.
