P»ge-4 GREELEY TRIBUNE Wednesday, nee. 21, 1955 Tuberculin Tesf Found To Be Master Key to Tuberculosis Problem CHICAGO -- "The tuberculin t«t h«s become the raaslor key to the tuberculosis problem," four Minnesota researchers said. ··"After a 28-year study o( mass tuberculin testing of school children, they made two predictions: 1h»l if new antimicrobial drugs vork, TB m»y be cured for the first time in history; and that mass testing may mean "tracking down and destroying the last tubercle bacilli." :The injection of a small amounl wf tuberculin reveals the presence of tuberculosis earlier than any tfher method, they said in the Journal of the A m e r i c a n Mod leal Association. It does so with "uncanny accuracy," and before ligns are evident through ches x-ny, they i»W. They explained that infected per jons become "rcacton" to thi ests within a few; w'etVs alter Infection. In this early stage anti- microbial drugs may destroy the bacilli. Lclcr, .when tho disease reaches the stage where x-ray shows its presence/the drugs may not destroy all bacilli. If nonre- aclors .arc tested periodically they can be- caught and treated soon after the bacili "invade" the body. The best time to start routine tuberculin testing is in childhood, and a widespread movement now is u n d e r way to lest school children everywhere. Eventually, they said, there will be "no alternative" but periodical testing of all nonreactors. Persons who have reached the reactor stage and arc "destined" to develop lung lesions should be examined periodically so lesions can be discovered as soon as .they appear and are more treatable. The high percentage of cases not now discovered until t h e y already have reached the advanced, soon- fatal stage, could be found by tuberculin testing in early' reactor HIS CHRISTMAS With A New Tie stages, they said. From then on[ periodic examinations at least an- ually could catch- 95 per cent of developing lesions while they 2(111 can be kept--by present treatment methods -- from becoming contagious. In addition to. finding new eases of tuberculosis, the test provides a w»y of finding unknown contagious cases by checking per- s o n s ' w h o have been' hi contact with tuberculin reactors. Eventually "there must come a time" when attempts to face the source of infection will reveal that most contagious cases already have been found and treated, they said. The lest also may show when adequate treatment has been given. There is reason to believe that when all tubercle bacilli are destroyed the individual will cease to react to the tuberculin injection, they said. They studied children in 25 Minneapolis parochial schools, beginning in 1926 when almost half of the children were found to have been in contact with tuberculous people or animals or their products. By 1936 the rate had dropped to 18.9 per cent, and by 1944 to 7.7 per cent. In 1954 only 3.9 per cent of almost the entire school population -reacted. School personnel, of fl less protected generation, showed a 46.8 per cent reaction. Throughout the 28 years an intensive control program was carried out, including the use of mobile chest x-ray units; addition of hospital beds for contagious cases, and. tuberculin testing by private physicians. Veterinarians attacked the problem and by 1953 only one of every 5,000 tested cattle reacted. The 1954 program followed the school certification plan of the Committee on Tuberculosis of the American School Health Association. To be certified a ichool must h»ve B5 to 100 per cent of the children and all the school personnel tested. In addition, both reactors and nonreactors must be retestcd periodically, with all reactors being given x-ray and other examinations. At present there are more t h a n 2,000 Minnesota schools' certified under the plan. · Making the report were Drs. J. Arthur Myers and Frederick G. w»rd A. Meyerding, St. .Paul, and Miss Jean Roberts, M. S., Minneapolis, who were aided by a grant from the H. Longstreet Taylor Foundation, established by the Minnesota Tuberculosis and Health Association.
