U.S. doctors
accused in
syphilis case
NEW YORK (P-U.S. Public
Health Service (PTS) doctors
had the knowledge and the medi-
cation as early as 1936 to suc-
cessfully treat black men par-
ticipating in a federal syphilis
experiment in Alabama, but the
doctors withheld the treatment,
a national medical magazine has
reported.
Quoting 'from PHS' own re-
ports on the progress of the ex-
periment, known as the - Tus-
kegee Study, Medical World News
reported that only 25 per cent
- of the untreated syphilitics were
normal after several years of
study while all syphilitics treat-
ed with the best 'remedy known
at the time were free of the
disease.
The Associated Press disclosed
last month that doctors at the
PHS' Center for Disease Control
(CDC) in Atlanta, which over-
sees the experiment, deliberate-
ly denied treatment to partici-
pants in the Tuskegee Study,
even after the discovery of peni-
cillin, so that autopsies could be
performed on those who died.
Medical World News quoted
the CDC report, which indicated
early treatment was better than
no treatment at all.
"Adequate anti-syphilitic treat-
ment prevented all forms of
clinical relapse . . . whereas only
one fourth of the Negroes with
untreated syphilis were normal,"
the report said.
After disclosure of the study,
current CDC officials in Atlanta
said their records showed that
seven men had died as a direct
result of untreated syphilis. They
also said at the time that the
figure could be higher, and ap-
parently it is.
CDC reports written in 1955,
1961 and again in 1971 said that
of 92 untreated syphilitics autop-
sied between 1935 and 1953, "28
or 30.4 per cent had cardiovas-
cular or central nervous system
syphilitic lesions as their primary
cause of death."
