Drugs and serums which are new or newly improved will be provided for physicians without charge by the Michigan Department of Health, so that a pneumonia patient anywhere in the state may have the benefit of treatment methods which | make unnecessary two out of three pneumonia deaths. j "Pneumonia follows a neglected cold, nine times out o£ ten," says Dr. H. Allen Moyer, State Health Commissioner. "The early signs of pneumonia will include some or all of these: chill, fever, pain in the side and cough. Any person who after a cold has a chill' followed by a sudden rise In temperature should call the doctor and go to bed. The new drugs and serums are wonderfully effective-^but they must be given early." Distributing centers for the drugs and serums have been established in j 66 hospitals and health departments. The durgs are sulfathiazole and sul- fadiazine, both of which are extremely effective in treating . pneumonia. The serums are newly Improved and are the culmination of five years ot research work in the State Health Department laboratories where they are produced.
