The fight against uberculosis inji
AmnerPa is showing results, evidence
among students here tends to show,4
according to a recent report issued
by the Health Service.
College students are in the dangerj
age for this disease, but though at
special search has been made by the1
University Health Service for active
cases during the past four years, an
average of fewer than 30 active cases
has been found in the student body
of over 8,000. Women are affected
almost twice as frequently as are
men, and rates are higher among
seniors and graduates, as is to be
expected because of their age, the
report points out.
That the anti-tuberculosis efforts
of this country are getting results is
further indicated by comparison of
cases among foreign students, which
are m u c h m o r e numerous than
among native born. More active
cases were found among University
foreign students, especially from ori-
ental countries, so that everyone is
now given x-ray examination of the
lungs as part of his entrance health
requirements. Many of these cases
are from wealthy foreign families
where economic conditions are not
a factor, it was found.
Last year inedical students were
all x-rayed and less than one-half of
one per cent were found to have the
disease, as compared with percent-
ages as high as 2.5 reported among
senior students by the University of
Pennsylvania, which also reported
that tuberculosis increases very rap-
idly among medical students during
their four years in school. Michigan

small city, or on the basis of differ-
ing interpretations of x-ray pictures.
Sent To Sanitoriums
Active cases of the disease are
usually sent to sanitoriums near
their homes or treated in the new
tuberculosis unit of the University
Hospital, the latter course being fol-
lowed, especially with some foreign
students. Minor and suspected cases
are followed up closely by the Health
Service with diet, sleep, rest, and
medical treatment, and can usually
be cleared up with student co-op-
eration, according to the report.
