New Influenza Vaccine Made from Hen's Eggs

A new vaccine for the prevention
of influenza that is successful in
three out of four cases has been de-
veloped by Dr. Thomas Francis, Jr.
and Dr. Jonas E. Salk of the School
of Public Health.
The history-making results of tests
given to 12,474 ASTP trainees last
November appear in the new issue of
the Journal of the American Medi-
cal Association.

just before the flu epidemic struck1
the middle west.
The surprisingly uniform results
showed that only 2.22 per cent of
the men innoculated with the vaccine
caught the flu while 7.11 per cent of
those who did not receive the vaccine
suffered from the disease. In other
words, those who did not have pro-
tection were 3.2 times as likely to be-
┬░ome infected.
The vaccine evidently takes effect

1 about a week after it is injected un-
der the skit. The majority of people
feel no after effects. Even if they do,
the reaction is milder than the ef-
fect of a typhoid shot. It is not
known how long the vaccine remains
The nine ASTP units in which the
tests were given were stationed at
New York medical and dental colleg-
es, City College of New York, Rut-
gers, Princeton, Cornell, Michigan,
Minnesota, Iowa and California.

Hen's Eggs Used
Hens' eggs are used in making the
vaccine. The influenza virus is in-
jected into a small hole drilled in the
side of a fertile egg and then the
hole is sealed with paraffin. After the
egg is incubated for two days, the
shell is broken and virus-bearing li-
quid is drawn off and made into the
Dr. Francis, who is considered the
foremost authority on influenza in
the country, was authorized by the
Surgeon General's office to make the
test among student soldiers at eight
universities and one medical and
dental unit. In each unit the men to
be tested were divided into two ap-
proximately equal groups, one of
which was innoculated with the new
vaccine and the other with a salt
solution. Neither the soldiers nor the
observing doctors knew who had been
given the vaccine. The test was given
