TUESDAY, MARCH 30, IAKK.) COURIER NEWS FAGB THTRCT Polio Vaccine Must Now Pass Acid Test (Continued from Page 1) vaccine will work is easy—antibodies. Antibodies are nature's policemen. They are tiny protein particles, circulating in the blood, which can combine with and disarm an invading germ or virus. When some germ attacks you, your body starts malting antibodies against it. If you make enough antibodies soon enough, you win the battle. If you don't, you become ill and sometimes die. Once you have made antibodies, you usually keep them. You have your antibody factories all set up, ready to go to work at a moment's notice. The antobodies against one kind, of germ or virus work only against that specific disease agent. It is now known that most of us by age 15 already have antibodies against one, two, or all three separate types of virus which can cause paralytic polio. We made them sometime in the past when virus invaded us. Most of us never knew we had the virus. Once you make antibodies against a virus, you apparently are protected for- life against that type of virus. The purpose of a vaccine is to make you set up antibody factories by giving you dead or safe virus. Dr. Salk has been testing his vaccine on children for a year and a half. Of nearly 5,000 children vaccinated so far, not one has become ill with any fever from the vaccine, or even had soreness in the arm receiving the shots. Blood tests show the vaccinations can create antibodies against all three types of virus, even in children who had no polio antibodies at all before getting the vaccine. They kept these antibodies, in what seem to be protective amounts, for at least seven months. That's the length of one polio season. But Dr. Salk has just made a heartening new find. It seems that the first one or two shots of vaccine alter the body's antibody mechanism, make it more sensitive. When the third or booster shot of vaccine is given sometime later, antibody production soars sky-high. Some children even got more antibodies than they show after natural infection with polio. And Dr. Salk has a -little evidence that natural exposure to polio after one or two shots of vaccine may act like a booster shot of vaccine. The sensitized antibody mechanism may be triggered into quick, high production of antibodies against the virus which is making an invasion. These are reasons for thinking that a few shots of vaccine can give life-long protection. Whenever live virus came along, the antibody policemen would appear in heavy force. Children in the test are getting two shots of vaccine spaced a week apart, with the booster shot four weeks later. Actually there may be a better timing or spacing for the booster shot to create the most protection, and this question is being studied. It's also possible that only one initial or sensitizing shot is needed, followed by one booster later. Well, you may ask, if the vaccine creates antibodies, why is there any doubt that it won't protect the children? There are two questions. One is whether there are enough anti bodies from the vaccine. The other is whether the virus can attack nerves without going through the bloodstream where the antibodies are standing guard The evidence is that most of us get polio because the virus enters the intestinal tract, then gets into the bloodstream, and then move on to attack the nerves. But there is evidence that sometimes it can bypass the blood stream, thus escaping attack by the antibodies. The tests on thousands of children will help show how often the virus may attack in this manner rather than through the bloodstream. But there is a hopeful fact here too. It is that spaced shots of the vaccine may produce so many antibodies that some "spill over" from the bloodstream into peripheral nerves. They would thus be standing guard along nerve pathways against virus which did bypass the bloodstream. (Tomorrow: How the vaccine is made, how the tests are being run.)

German Reds Demand Big 3 Withdraw Military Missions BERLIN (/?! — Walter Ulbricht. strong man secretary of East Germany's ruling Communist party, demanded today that the Big Three Western Powers withdraw their nilitary missions from the East German Republic. He told the opening session of his Socialist Unity party's first convention in four years that maintenance of Western military missions in the Soviet zone was ncompatible with the sovereignty he Russians proclaimed last week or East Germany. In another bid for the long - [enied Western recognition of his Russian - dominated government, Ulbricht said the East German Re- )ublic is "ready to take up normal iplomatic relations with these ) states''—the United States, Britain and France. The three Western Powers now have military missions in the Soviet zone under the four-power occupation agreements but do not recognize the East zone government on the grounds it is not representative of the zone's 18 million Germans. Ulbricht in effect offered them the chance to keep their military- observers in the Eastern zone only as military attaches to accredited Don't Neglect Slipping FALSE TEETH Do false teeth, drop, slip or -wobble when you talk, eat, laugh or sneeze?
