PAGE TWO BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER KEW1 WEDNESDAY, MARCH «§, US Scientists Test Vaccine Russia Says Conquers Flu By DOUGLAS LARSEN NBA Sta/ff Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NBA) — U. S. scientists will soon know how much truth there is to Russia's claim of a vaccine which is conquering flu. The National Institute of Health at Bethesda, Md., is now making elaborate laboratory tests of a dozen vials of live virus flu vaccine which a group of Russian scientists presented to the NIH on a recent tour of the U. S. ... If the vaccine is as effective as the Russians claim ,it could open up a new approach for U.S. work in this field, NIH officials admit. It might also broaden the base of immunity of vaccines against the mysterious virus "Xs" which cause regional and nation-wide flu epidemics. More than 200 mice are being used in the complex evaluation tests. Some time in late spring NIH will make its first reports. If ihe\ are favorable. U.S. government and private researchers are likely to be inspired to make a second stage of tests on humans, perhaps. It will be »t least two years before U.S. citizens can enjoy the benefits of this Soviet vaccine—if it proves successful. Regulations dictate careful procedures in developing vaccines new to the U.S. U.S. virus e.xeprts have been generally, aware of the Russian vaccine Now that they have samples they can easily reproduce all they need for research. The U.S. has a flue vaccine, now given to military personnel, which is 50 to 70 per cent effective. Dr Chumafcov reported that the Russian vaccine is used widely with "great success" and that it had "great therapautic value." Prtvioui Red Government reports claimed that the vaccine was practically eliminating flue in the Soviet. The Russian vaccine is the live virus type. The U.S. vaccine is the killed virus type. Many years ago, NIK spokesmen explain, U.S. scientists decided that the Wiled virus type held the most promise and concentrated on its development. Among other things the killed virus type has less side effects, although U.S. doctors do The Russian llvt virm flu vaccine is inhaled through the nose with an atomizer. Dr. chumakov admitted that it was not given to children because of the danger of serious side-effects to them. However, the fact that Russian vaccine is the live virus type-could give it the potential of providing a broader base of immunity, a NIH expert admits. It has more of a shotgun effect against many types _jjl tlue virus. The killed vaccine has a rifle effect against a specific flu virus. NIH officials are generally pleased by the results of the Russian visit. Information was exchanged freely on a whole range of virus diseases, it is claimed, with both the Russian and U.S. doctors ben- efitting. LAB WORKER at National Institute of Health works with tissue culture to test Russian vaccine for influenza virus use live virus vaccines against some diseases. Dr. Chumakov told NIH experts that they had embarked on the live virus line of work because the Russian people do not like to be stuck with needles. Killed virus vaccines must be administered that way. Mississippi Legislature Faces Possible Wrangle with Churches JACKSON, Miss. Wl — The Mississippi Legislature in its zeal to protect the state's segregation laws has walked into the explosive subject of religion and integration. The state Senate Monday refused 55-14 to reconsider a bill It passed that would strip 'churches, hospitals, religious institutions or any organization of their ad valoreum tax exemptions if they fall to maintain segregation. It now must face a test in the House. Up to the time the full import of the measure was realized, every bill seeking to maintain segregation had at least 9S per cent support of both houses.
