Government Officials Make First Re
port on Tuberculosis Vaccine To
, Oonifnue Observaftlons.
Washington, May 9.?The first au
thenlo and political report of tho fed
eral government's investigation of the
Friedman tuberculosis vaccine made
public here today declares the results
of the public health service observa
tions so far do "not justify that con
fidence in the remedy which has "been
Inspired by widespread publicity."
The national association for the
study and prevention of tuberculosis,
be/ore which the report wos present
ed, immediately and unanimously
resolution declaring Its 'boflief that
"no specific cure for tuberculosis has
beon discovered that de?erves the
confidence of the medical profession
and the public," and declaring It to
be the duty of the public to contlnuo
?"all the present well tried agencies."
Although couched In the diplomatic
terms of a governmental scientific
document, the report on the Fried
man "euro" expresses the disap
pointment of the public health service
at the conditions imposed by Frled
mann; and says his declination to
furnish complete Information con
cerning his vaccine was not "satis
factory from a scientific standpoint."
The public health service, however,
the report says, accepted his condi
tions because of the great importance
to thousands of sufferers and tho hope
that a euro might be found.
To Continue Observations.
The report was made by Dr. Johns
Anderson, director of the hygienic
labratory, and Dr. A. M. Stimson,
another public health service officer,
who were designated by Surgeon Gen
eral Blue to make labratory tests of
the Frledmann vaccine and observe
the 90-odd tuberculosis patients inoc
ulated in New York.
The Investigators point out that
while Dr .Frledmann in his prelimi
nary correspondence xjffered to lay
fuil and Impartial information before
tho government, ho declined to do so
after coming here. Observations by
the public health service will be con
tinued, however, and the Investigators
express the opinion that the patients
already inoculated must look forward
to a long period of treatment.
