Scientists Experiment on Sal

'Work did not stop on the Salk
Polio vaccine when the success of
its test trials was announced at
the University in the fall of 1955.
Medical scientists in all parts
of the world have been experi-
menting to find ways to increase
its effects and make it useful in
different ways.
In the University's public
health school experimentation is
underway to combine the Salk
vaccine with triple antigen-the
well known "preventative shots"
for diptheria, tetanus and whoop-
ing cough.
Combat "Foreign Proteins"
When antigens enter the blood
stream, they cause formation of
antibodies to combat specific
"foreign proteins" which may en-
ter the blood as a disease agent.
Work on the effects of an ex-
perimental polio vaccine and
triple antigen mixture is being
done by two faculty members of
the University's School of Public
Health - Doctors Gordon C.
Brown and Pearl L. Kendricks of
the epidemiology department.
Dr. Brown, in addition to his
research work with the vaccine-
antigen mixture, has done con-
siderable work in the field of po-
lio research and was one of the
experts who evaluated Dr. Salk's
Worked Atter Tests
They began their experiments
with the polio vaccine shortly aft-
it was evaluated.
When the success of the Salk
vaccine was first announced, the
possibility of combining the triple
antigen with the polio vaccine oc-
curred to many medical scientists
--Dr. Brown and Dr. Kendricks
among them.
Many Problems
However, the combining process
is a bit more complicated than
just mixing antigens and vaccine
and hoping for the best.
In their experiments, Drs.
Brown and Kendricks have to be
certain that the antigens and
vaccine in combination do not re-
act unfavorably to each other.
Further, they must be sure the
antigens in combination will re-
act exactly the same in the blood
stream as they would if separa-
rately administered.

Observe Reaction
First they innoculate an ani-
mal with each of the four anti-
gens in separately administered
doses. They then innoculate an-
other one with the combined vac-
cine - each antigen in equal
amount in the mixture.
They then observe the reaction

shots." The results of these tests
are ,compared with similar test
results taken on the animals that
received separate doses.
For the combined antigen to be
successful, the results of both
tests must be favorable and ex-
actly the same..
Rewarding Study
Thus far, the studies of Drs.
Kendricks and Brown have been
very rewarding but they reveal
that more research must be done
in this field.
Both researchers feel, as do
many others in their field, there
are certain advantages to be
gained if the proposed antigen-
vaccine combination should prove
successful in application to hu-

were given separately, and pro-
tection against a disease of low
incidence, such as tetanus, be-

Another advantage, according
to Dr. Brown, is that most people
are innoculated with the triple
antigen at an early age to give
maximum protection against'
childhood ills, and they could be
innoculated with the Salk vaccine
at the same time in a combined
