NO INFANTILE PARALYSIS CURE This tho Finding of Dr. Flexner, Who Urgea Careful Study. . Albany, Aug. 14. No treatment so far na la known which can be regard ed an speoine. or even effective "has been found In dealing with the prob lem of Infantile, paralysis, according to Dr. Simon Uiexner of New York. who has been making a special study of the disease. At a conference here of medical ofHoera under the auspices of the state department of health. Dr Flexner among other things gave -the following views In discussing Infantile paralysis: The disease Is still alive over considerable portion of the state. Our greatest concern Is to determine how nnd under what circumstances the disease is spread. There Is no trentment so far ns we know which can lo regarded as spec- ille or even effectlvo. It Is easily transmitted from nn! mala to man and Is more fatal In ani mals than In man. One attack, how ver light, appears to establish an Im inunlty against a second attack. This Is du to a specific micro-organism the propagation of which In the Inxly nprrr to brln;Voijt a -react Ion es tablishing nn Immunity. Until we can succeed In determining how this disease Is transmitted we cannot expect to accomplish Its pre- cntlon. Though paralysis Is present In most all -ases there are cases with no aralysls. Such cases are spoken of as abortive, and It Is quite likely that they are the source of frequent exten sion of the disease even fatal cases rising from abortive cases. The period of Incubation appears to be from three to thirty-three days. Four weeks 1 supposed to be the pe riod of Infectiousness of the disease. fter which It Is not thought that In fection emanates from tho case. The course of entrance of the germs f thltf disease appears to be through Hie upper air passages, especially the nose. It would also appear that the most irobnble means of exit of this germ Is through the nose nnd throat. It Is therefore very Important thnt the dls- harges from the nose and throat of nses suffering from Infantile parnly Is be properly destroyed. Dr. Flexner appeals to the medical fficers and to the health officers of; the state to study In detail each case omlnir under their observation. He remises assistance nnd co-operntlon from the Rockefeller Institute of Med 'cal Research whenever and wherever the snmo Is possible. During the year 1910, 322 cases of nfantlle paralysis In forty-nine eoun- les were reported to the state depart ment of. health. This shows a wide llstrlbutlon of the disease, with no pparent relation to any central focus. The disease, "however, has been most orevalent In certain rntlier definitely Mmlted, areas, namely, In tho counties bordering- nn the St. Lawrence river and In the area bounded on the north by Lake Ontario, south hy Pennsyl- anla, eoft hy a line drawn south from the eastern end of Lake Ontario and on the -west by Monroe, Living- ton nnd Cnttaraugiia counties. If 1910 the eases along the Hudson river ere mostly north of IPoughkeepsle, hlch city, however, reported no cases. Twentj'-three cases were reportea from the city of Schnectady.
