WEDNESDAY, APRIL 19, I960 ELYTHEVn.LE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Doctor to Fight For TB Vaccine BCG Will Prevent 70 to 90 Per Cent, Psysician Claims By Btn Funk DENVER, April 19. (IT)— The vaccine, BCG, will whip tuberculosis, *ays Dr. Fxlward J. O'Brien of Der ^nlt, "and somebody has got to ^iise hell until this country wakes up to that fact." "I guess," he adder! In an Interview, "that I'm Just the guy to do It." The white-haired Dr. O'Brien, one of the nation's to;) TB surgeons, launched a crusade for BCG In speech here before the American Association for Thoracic Surgery, of which he Is president. He told the surgeons their present methods of combatting TB—some of which he developed himself— "won't solve the problem In a thousand years." BCG Is Only Answer BCQ Is the only answer, he declared, "and It's amazing that the U.S. Public Health Service can't see It. 1 ' Dissenting opinions came from Dr. Robert J. Anderson of the Public Health Service in Washington and from Dr. Harry J. Corper, research director of the National Jewish Hospital here. Dr. Anderson said evidence Is still Incomplete as to the effectiveness of BCQ. Dr. Corper. while admitting that BCG Is a preventive, said he didn't think mass vaccinations were justified except In countries like India, or in alum areas of cities like New York and Chicago. neplylng to Dr. Anderson's statement, Dr. O'Brien said millions of In other countries had been :lnated. that BCG had given immunity to 70 to 90 per cent, and that there hadn't been a single report of harmful effects In 20 years. Ai for Dr. Corper, he declared "that's the kind of reasoning I onn't understand. It's the same os- trfch-llke attitude you'll find in the Public Health .Service. WhV I)r»wi Line? "How in Ood's name can they draw a line on who Is to be vaccinated? How can it be all right to save the people of India and New York and Chicago, but not the rest of the people of the United Stales? "Of course, the TB death toll In rnd4a ta much larger than it Is here, and fchey need & vaccination program worse than we do. But still 150,000 die from TB in our country every r year. "Isn't it worthwhile to save 45,000 of those people?" To, Dr. Corper''s argument that a national vaccination program would te "a massive waste of funds," Dr. O'Brien, noted,that public ancKpri- f "e agencies are spending $350,,000- a year to fight TB. And they're not making »ny progress in controlling the disease,' he said. "AH we're doing now Is trying to save the lives of the poor physical wrecks who already have TB." Dr. O'BciM Mid ttu TB death ton had been cut 88 per cent In Japan by * compulsory vaccination program ordered by General Mac- Artfcur, »nd similar results had been obtained In other countries.
