    Access Excellence Classic Collection
    Development of Polio Vaccines
    by Bonnie A. Maybury Okonek and Linda Morganstein, editor In 1921, outbreaks of poliomyelitis plagued America. That summer, a young politician named Franklin Delano Roosevelt was vacationing with his family at their Campobello estate. After an exhausting day fighting a local forest fire, taking a cold swim for relief, and then lounging in his wet swimsuit at home, he went to bed feeling as though he had contracted a cold. In a few days Roosevelt found out he had polio. As it did with Roosevelt, polio can strike quickly. The virus enters the body by nose or mouth and travels to the intestines, where it incubates. A few days later, most patients are either asymptomatic or they experience flu-like symptoms, such as headache, nausea, vomiting, and fever. Whether they are symptomatic or not, people at this stage can pass the disease on to others. Polio can be spread through contact with infected feces or through infected droplets traveling through the air, in food, or in water. The virus next enters the bloodstream, and the patient makes antibodies against it. In most cases, this stops the progression of the virus; lifelong immunity against the disease is acquired. 10% of infected people develop symptoms and 1% develop the paralytic form of polio.

    For polio survivors, another hurdle decades later
    Dr. Lauro Halstead, who directs the post-polio program at the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Washington, suffers from PPS From Rea Blakey CNN Medical Unit WASHINGTON (CNN) As many as 20 million people around the world who survived childhood polio are at risk of developing new symptoms of the disease decades later, the March of Dimes said Monday, but too little is known about the condition to adequately address it. The organization has released two reports on post-polio syndrome (PPS) to help doctors and patients find ways to diagnose and treat the illness. "There is no definitive test for PPS," said Dr. Christopher Howson of the March of Dimes, "so it's very hard to diagnose and is generally done through a process of excluding other disease conditions." Dr. Lauro Halstead, who directs the post-polio program at the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Washington, is among those polio survivors now grappling with the syndrome. He first contracted the disease as a college student in the 1950s a period when mere mention of the condition could cause panic, because it was so contagious and so debilitating.

    Tell Me More About polio. polio is caused by damage to the motor neurons (or voluntary nerves) of the spinal cord after an infection by the poliovirus.




    Tell Me More About Polio
    By Christopher J. Rutty, Ph.D
    Health Heritage Research Services
    POLIO (Poliomyelitis) is one of the most dramatic infectious diseases of the 20th century, which, thanks to the mass use of two types of polio vaccines introduced in the mid-1950s and early 1960s, is now approaching global eradication. During the first half of the 20th century, the grim terror of crippling polio epidemics regularly, though randomly, swept across the United States and Canada (and most of the industrialized world) with increasing ferocity, suddenly leaving large numbers of otherwise healthy children, and adults, permanently disabled, or dead due to paralysis of their breathing muscles. Polio is an ancient, though mainly harmless, infection of the intestinal tract that rarely progresses beyond a mild flu-like illness to invade the central nervous system and cause damage in the spinal cord. In nature, the poliovirus can only multiply in humans, although some monkey species can be deliberately infected in laboratories, and it can only survive outside the body in water or sewage for limited periods of time. The virus is spread from person to person by invisible carriers, mostly by faecal oral contamination through such common activities as changing a baby's diaper. During the late 19th and early 20th century, paralytic polio moved from an isolated childhood affliction, to a worsening epidemic threat, ironically, because of improving public health and hygiene standards that prevented, or delayed, an almost universal immunizing exposure to the virus during infancy when the body's immune system could easily fight it off before it caused any damage.

    Polio vaccine policy may change
    POLIO QUICK FACTS Polio , short for poliomyelitis, is a viral infection that may lead to paralysis and death. It is caused by three closely related viruses and is most commonly spread by direct contact with infected individuals.
  • A vaccine developed by Dr. Jonas Salk in the 1950s has virtually eliminated polio from most of the world.
  • The World Health Organization (WHO) has set a goal of global eradication of polio by the year 2000.
  • In 1994, the WHO declared the Americas free of polio. The last case was reported in Peru in 1991.

Severe cases may cause permanent paralysis or death. Causes, incidence, and risk factors Return to top Poliomyelitis is a communicable disease caused by infection with the poliovirus. Transmission of the virus occurs by direct person-to-person contact, by contact with infected secretions from the nose or mouth, or by contact with infected feces. The virus enters through the mouth and nose, multiplies in the throat and intestinal tract, and then is absorbed and spread through the blood and lymph system . Incubation (the time from being infected with the virus to developing symtoms of disease) ranges from 5 to 35 days (average 7 to 14 days). Risks include:
    • lack of immunization against polio travel to an area that has experienced a polio outbreak pregnancy; very old or very young age

    Three Nigerian states halt polio vaccinations over AIDS fears

ABUJA, Nigeria (Reuters) Three states in northern Nigeria have suspended a polio immunization program led by the World Health Organisation (WHO) because they feared it spread AIDS and caused infertility, Nigerian officials said on Monday. In Geneva, the WHO said there was no question about the purity or safety of the vaccine it used and warned that Nigeria was exporting the disease to neighbouring countries. The mainly-Muslim states of Kano, Zamfara and Kaduna suspended the program last week, said Chinwere Chukwuani, a director at Nigeria's National Polio Immunization Office. She told Reuters the suspension meant the debilitating disease could spread further in Nigeria, one of only seven countries where the virus is still prevalent and which has the highest number of cases in the world.

KADUNA, Nigeria (AP) A northern state in Nigeria that is at the heart of a spreading polio outbreak said Sunday that it would not relent on its boycott of a mass vaccination program, which it has called a U.S. plot to spread AIDS and infertility among Muslims. "Kano state will not participate in tomorrow's polio campaign. Our team made the discovery of contaminants first, remember," state government spokesman Sule Ya'u Sule told The Associated Press, referring to tests the state says its scientists conducted on the polio vaccine last year. "Unless we are convinced by our committee [of health experts] that the oral polio vaccines are safe, the exercise remains suspended in Kano state," Sule said.
