INFLUENZA SERUMS.
Every one hopes that some serum or
other preparation may 1 m* discovered
which will prevent or alleviate the dan
gers of the influenza. The Journal of
American Medical association is the
highest authority in existence on such
matters and the folllowing report on the
subject of vaccines or serums, in the issue
of Oct. 10, 1918, will be of interest to
our readers:
Vaccines in Influenza.
With the appearance of the epidemic
of influenza, reports began to appear,
chiefly in newspapers, as to new serums,
vaccines, drugs and other methods for
checking and even for curing the disease.
A few samples of such as have come
to the Journal appear in our Tonics and
Sedatives department this week. In
Massachusetts Commissioner E. R. Keliy
appointed two committees to investigate
the value of influenza vaccines as a pre
ventive agent and as a treatment of the
disease.
board for scientific investigation, consist
ing of Dr. M. J. Rosenau, chairman, and
Frederick P. Gay and George W. McCoy,
appointed to consider the evidence
available on the prophylactic and thera
peutic use of vaccines against influenza.
This committee presented the following
conclusions:
1. The evidence at hand affords no
trustworthy l>asis for regarding prophy
lactic vaccination against influenza as of
value in preventing the spread of the
disease, or of reducing its severity. The
evidence
though meager, suggests that the inci
dence of the disease among the vaccinat
ed is smaller than among the nonvae
einated. The board, therefore, concludes
that further experimental evidence
should lie collected.
2. The evidence at hand convinces the
Umnl that the vaccines we have consid
ereil have no specific value in the treat
j ment of influenza.
3. There is evidence that no unfavor

2. The statistical evidence, as far as
it goes, indicates a probability that the

3. There is also some evidence to the
effect that ether methods of protection,
such as open-air treatment and the use
of proper masks, are effective in protect

As a result, the following reeommend
ations were made:
That the state encourage the distribu

prophylactic use, but in such manner as
will secure scientific evidence of the pos
sible value of the agent. The use of such
vaccine is to he regarded as experimental.
That the state shall neither furnish
nor endorse any vaccine at present in
for the treatment of influenza.

OF INTEREST TO NURSES.

quarters to the effect that some nurses
have refused to sign
questionaires sent out to them, fearing
they might be called to service they did
not desire. The
