THE WASHINGTON TIMES, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 16, 1913. n -- Zjps-f ' FRIEDMANN FAILS TO ANSWER U. S. REBUKE German Savant Makes No Reply to Health Service Officers' Demand for Speed. Dr. Frtederlch Franz Friedmann, dis coverer of the turtle fcerum for tuber culosis, has failed to answer the. United States Govenmenl's rebuke for his delay In treating the cases under observation at New York. Heads of the Public Health Servl;e here refuse to comment on this absence of a reply from the German savant. Their future course Is only speculative, but the dilatory methods pursued by the doctor are holding up the Gov ernment clinical observations of New Tork phthisis victims, and hdve halted the Investigation of the cultures of the serum at the HyglenicLaboratory here. Dr. Friedmann has expressed a de sire to co-operate with the Government. Btlll the Government officials are say ing naught, although their letter, sent through Dr. Anderson, of the Hygienic Laboratory, shows plainly today that the Government is annoyed at Dr. Frledmann's Inaction and his secrecy as to the genesis of the serum. Patient Develops Fever. Unpleasant symptoms developed today In one of the patients treated In Dr. Frledmann's clinic Monday, Isador Freudberg. sixteen years old. of 61 K street, has developed fever and a pain In the side today. Before night, his family physician will Investigate the case to see. whether the development Is a, natural aftermath or tne imeamann eerum Injection or a serious ana unex sected outcome. Freudberg, despite the pain he suffers today, wears a smile, for his faith In the doctor and the new treatment Is the bow on life s dark cloud for the lad. I know I'm going to get well, now," said Freudberg hopefully, almost tri umphantly, today to his sister. Miss Celia Freudberg. His two years' battle against tuberculosis seemed to be at an end, and he only laugned at tne fever and side ache which racked his already tortured body. Has Faith In Cure. "It's a great medicine." he went on in Ills boyish hope. "And I know that Dr. Friedmann will cure me so that I can play and work like the other boys who don't havo lung trouble. Some day I'll be a big strong man, thanks to the great German doctor." Senator Hughes of New Jersey will probably introduce In the Senate tomor row his resolution permitting Dr. Fried mann to practice in the District. Un less the secret of the Friedmann cure Is forthcoming soon, or unless his pati ents, by improvement, demonstrate the worth of the remedy. Dr. Friedmann can be barred from Interstate practice, but pay get local permits. In 'its protest over the German's de lays, the Government tells him that It wants to make Its determinations of the curative properties of the tuber culosis "cure' at an early date, calls attention to -his dilatory methods and to the fact that he has not treated all patients selected for Government inspection. , J. The United, States, both for the sake of the patients, and to make possible an early decision of the se rum's curative properties, asks that he proceed at once with the treat ment of patients now under Govern ment observation. Rebuked In Letter. The letter to the German savant Is signed by Dr. John F. Anderson, director of the hygienic laboratory and director of the board of investi gation into the Friedmann cure and reads: "Dr. Frederlch Franz Friedmann. Hotel Naragansett, Providence, R. I.: "We regret to have to invite your at tention to the halting progress In your demonstration of the alleged curative value of your remedy for tuberculo sis. Only ninety-four of the patients accepted by you as suitable for such test have been treated by you. In or der to avoid undue prolongation of your demonstration and to avoid un necessary delay in advising the public of a Judgment that we may be able to form of the value of your treatment we are forced to limit our clinical studies to the number already treated under your observation in the hospitals in New Tork clt. Prompt Action Urged. "From conversations with ipu. It Is understood that some of these patients are now ready for a further injection of your remedy. In their interests and for the reasons for limiting our clinical observations to those already treated, we feel that these patients should now be seen by you with the view of giving such additional injections of jour rem edy as may in, in your judgment, be necessary to effect a cure. We should be pleased, therefore, to have jou give this matter jour prompt attention and Inform us regarding their condition at an early date. , , . "We may be communicated with In writing,- addressed either to Dr. A. N. Stlmson. Hotel Martinique. New York cltv. or to Dr. John F. Anderson, di rector Hjglenic Laboratory. Washing ton. D. C. Respectfully. "JOHN F. ANDERSON. "Director Hygienic Laboratory, Chair man of the Board." Did Not Attend Clinic In the light of this letter, Washing ton now knows why the Public Health Service officials remained awav from Dr. Frledmann's clinic here Monday. Dr. Friedmann knows the law regard ing interstate commerce in vaccines, serums and the like. He promised the Government, upon arriving In New York, that he would assist In every way possible in a prompt Government in vestigation to determine the potency and harmlessness of the remedy. Clinics were established in New York. Two hundred patients were named. Dr. Friedmann treated ninety-four, repre senting all stages of tuberculosis. Since that time the Government ob servers have been forced to wait de velopments while the doctor visited Montreal, Providence, and Washington to give further demonstrations. Government Wants Formula. Furthermore, the Government has repeatedly warned the doctor that he must furnish his original formula be foru the tests can be complete. Dr. Friedmann has not refnsed to furnish this Information, but he has taken no steps to provide It. No later than Sun day Dr. Blue, of the Public Health Service, called Dr. Frledmann's atten tion to this subject. Experiments In the hygienic labora tory are halted. Dt Anderson, with out knowing the genesis of the serum, will not administer it to human beings; and the supply is so limited that he cannot pursue his treatment of lower animals. Dr. Friedmann admits that his cul tures are limited but he has sent to Berlin for more. The Public Health Service does not contemplate an announcement of Its findings until It has had opportunity to observe properly all the New York cases and until the Inner secrets of the cure arc In Government possession. Dr. Friedmann has begun treatments at Co a patient, according to dispatches ' from Providence. R. I., where he plans to make his headquarters during the re mainder of his stay In America. Dr. R. D. ApperKon. of Lvnchburg, Va., was one of Dr. Frledmann's first patients. He went to Providence by special train. Governor I'othier, of Rhode Island, Induced Dr. Friedmann to treat Apperson despite the facr-tliat his case is In a practically hopeless stage. The doctor also treated about slxtv patlents at J23 each from all section1 of the country. Letters are reaching Providence from doctors In manv places trjing to make appointments for persons en route to Providence from Texas. Colorado, West Virginia and northern New England.
