I Us victims either develop immunity or its inninxs them or kills them off before they reach the age of five. Bui. "in a teas where modern unitary conditions prevail, early epciitcd exposure to virus is not he rule and ttic population uc- omes .susceptible to the disease In !pfctomic form,-" Ward said. He ;ited the Invyc number of victims vho contract the disease after ina- urity in the United States, the Scandinavian countries and Aus- nilin. Ward, who is on the staff of iho Department of Pediatrics at New York University and a member 01 :he Bellevuc Hospital children's .nedical service, was a featured speaker at Ihc opening of n throe- clinical conference on polio- mclitis sponsored by the Warm Springs foundation. The foundation's founder, the late President Franklin D. Roosc- Velt, wns himself a victim of Mic dtsease in r'middle Hfe. Nfdst of 'the nation's lending authorities on the dread disease wen; here for the conference. Ward described the pcculinrUics of the poliomclili.s virus which make'research inlu the disease and its prevention and treatment, paramount problems in medical science. To .start ^vith, he said, the polio germ is one of Uic hardiest known viruses. It can be kept iionnant-r- but alive — in an ice bcx years. Ether, which kills most bacteria, is an excellent prescrvatu e for tlie infantile paralysis vim:;. There is no known agent Which has a. comparable effect on an active polio case that the sulfona- inirte drugs have on other infections. In the laboratory, polio experiments work only on humans and several higher types of primates i monkeys.) making research costly and cumbersome. The polio virus is evacuated by a great number of persons who have developed natural immunity from the This wus proved in an extended analysis of .sewage from a Manhattan disposal plant Although the sewage flowed at the rate of 400.000. V 00 gallons a day the virus was found in analysis of a casual 200 cubic centimeters. The traditional prevalence of infantile paralysis in the late Summer and early Fall weeks leads to a strong belief that fliers are i prime .spreader of the disease. "Positive results wore obtained not only from flies trapped in rural areas where potential sources of virus were obvious, but also from urban epidemic areas where no obvious source was evident," Dr. Ward said.
