Malaria in pregnant women is an important cause of stillbirths, infant mortality, abortion and low birth weight, particularly in P. Although P. Methods used to prevent malaria include medications, mosquito elimination and the prevention of bites. There is no vaccine for malaria. The presence of malaria in an area requires a combination of high human population density, high Anopheles mosquito population density and high rates of transmission from humans to mosquitoes and from mosquitoes to humans.
If any of these is lowered sufficiently, the parasite will eventually disappear from that area, as happened in North America, Europe and parts of the Middle East. Malaria ; see also: CDC. Though many articles and papers emphasize the public health contribution to the decline of malaria in the United States e.
Elimination of Malaria in the United States ; Sledge, , Gerard Grob, Professor of the History of Medicine at Rutgers University, paints a slightly different historical picture, emphasizing economic policies:. The disappearance of malaria did not follow the introduction of any public health measures or novel medical therapies.
Indeed, the fact that the disease established such a firm foothold in the United States at all was surprising; malaria, after all, was a tropical disease. Settlement patterns near waterways, disruption of drainage patterns, and agricultural practices, however, combined to create optimum conditions for the spread of the disease by providing mosquitoes with ideal breeding sites. In the South the Anopheles quadrimaculatis was the primary vector.
This mosquito breeds in still water, prefers an alkaline pH, and has an affinity to live in buildings rather than the wild. At the beginning of the Great Depression of the s, the areas with high malarial morbidity and mortality rates included parts of South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Alabama, the Mississippi Delta region, and the portion of the Red River Valley near the junction of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas. In many of these places human environmental modifications proved crucial. The experience of the Mississippi region is instructive. This area was devoted to cotton cultivation and provided an ideal environment for mosquito breeding because of the multiplicity of ponds of still water than followed the receding of river floods in the spring season.
Agricultural laborers tended to live close to the fields, and provided a reservoir of infected and susceptible persons…Generally speaking, malaria had long since disappeared in most urban sites. Although drainage projects and the use of insecticides became more common after , neither played decisive roles in the disappearance of the disease. Faust, a leading authority…indicated that improving economic conditions may have played an important role.
More recently Margaret Humphreys has emphasized the critical role of population movements. During the s people moved from urban area with high unemployment rates and returned to abandoned hacks in the countryside; many of these were located adjacent to stagnant water. The migration of infected persons further assisted the spread of the disease.
By the end of the decade, however, the situation was reversed; outmigration from the southern countryside was characteristic.

New Deal agricultural legislation encouraged large-scale farming and mechanization, which in turn depopulated rural areas and hastened the growth of towns and cities outside the infective zone. As the number of infected persons declined, the ability of mosquitoes to spread malaria diminished correspondingly. The malaria parasite, in other words, depended on frontier conditions of poverty and proximity to water. As rural southern poverty diminished, the parasite disappeared Grob, , pp. As can be seen from the Table 1 above, by the incidence of malaria in the United States had plummeted.
Also note the continuous decline in mortality for malaria from the figure below: Figure 4: Morbidity and mortality rates for malaria in all States reporting cases and deaths, to Chart 3 in Andrews, Malaria, a mosquito-borne disease, showed an exponential decline in both morbidity and mortality for the first half of the 20th Century, and was basically eliminated in the United States by the end of World War II through economic policies and public health measures.
Poliovirus is a member of the enterovirus subgroup…Enteroviruses are transient inhabitants of the gastrointestinal tract. There are three poliovirus serotypes P1, P2, and P3. There is minimal heterotypic immunity between the three serotypes. The virus enters through the mouth, and primary multiplication of the virus occurs at the site of implantation in the pharynx and gastrointestinal tract. The virus is usually present in the throat and in the stool before the onset of illness.
One week after onset there is less virus in the throat, but virus continues to be excreted in the stool for several weeks. The virus invades local lymphoid tissue, enters the bloodstream, and then may infect cells of the central nervous system. Replication of poliovirus in motor neurons of the anterior horn and brain stem results in cell destruction and causes the typical manifestations of poliomyelitis.
Clinical Features The incubation period for nonparalytic poliomyelitis is days. For the onset of paralysis in paralytic poliomyelitis, the incubation period usually is 7 to 21 days. The response to poliovirus infection is highly variable and has been categorized on the basis of the severity of clinical presentation. Infected persons without symptoms shed virus in the stool and are able to transmit the virus to others.
This clinical presentation is known as abortive poliomyelitis, and is characterized by complete recovery in less than a week. This is characterized by a low grade fever and sore throat. Increased or abnormal sensations can also occur. Typically these symptoms will last from 2 to 10 days, followed by complete recovery. Outcomes of poliovirus infection:. Paralytic symptoms generally begin 1 to 18 days after prodromal symptoms and progress for 2 to 3 days. Generally, no further paralysis occurs after the temperature returns to normal.
The prodrome may be biphasic, especially in children, with initial minor symptoms separated by a 1- to 7-day period from more major symptoms. Additional prodromal signs and symptoms can include a loss of superficial reflexes, initially increased deep tendon reflexes and severe muscle aches and spasms in the limbs or back. The illness progresses to flaccid paralysis with diminished deep tendon reflexes, reaches a plateau without change for days to weeks, and is usually asymmetrical. Strength then begins to return. Patients do not experience sensory losses or changes in cognition.
Many persons with paralytic poliomyelitis recover completely and, in most, muscle function returns to some degree. Weakness or paralysis still present 12 months after onset is usually permanent. Paralytic polio is classified into three types, depending on the level of involvement. It is characterized by asymmetric paralysis that most often involves the legs. Temporal Pattern Poliovirus infection typically peaks in the summer months in temperate climates.
There is no seasonal pattern in tropical climates. Persons infected with poliovirus are most infectious from 7 to 10 days before and after the onset of symptoms, but poliovirus may be present in the stool from 3 to 6 weeks CDC. Poliomyelitis ; see also: CDC. What Is Polio? While the other diseases discussed above were on the decline, polio was on the rise. Trevelyan :. A disease originally considered mildly contagious is now regarded as very contagious—almost as much as measles …From an endemic disease it has tended to become epidemic and is now a common and periodic scourge and incidentally an item of great public interest.
Poliomyelitis is one of the important emergent viral diseases of the twentieth century. From an apparently rare clinical condition—occurring only sporadically or in small outbreaks prior to the late nineteenth century— poliomyelitis had, by the s and s, emerged as an epidemic disease of global proportions. While faecal contamination of fingers, eating utensils, milk or foodstuffs is considered to be the more common means of transmission, [droplet spread from the pharynx, a corridor of spread used by other childhood diseases like chicken-pox, diphtheria, measles, and rubella] is a critical second strand in the person-to-person propagation of the disease.
Indeed, among older populations, and where high standards of sanitation are maintained, droplet spread may be the predominant route of poliovirus transmission. Finally, we note that, in contrast to some other diseases that involve faecal-oral transmission notably, cholera , contaminated water supplies are not a prerequisite for major epidemics of poliomyelitis. Infection with poliovirus is overwhelmingly subclinical, with the estimated ratio of inapparent to severe paralytic infections ranging up to There were thirty-nine polio epidemics in the U.
Turns out, mother knows best, at least, sometimes. Chlorine does kill the polio virus, though not immediately. However, the chlorine must come in contact with the virus and if one child infected with the virus is leaking fecal matter in a swimming pool, only virus particles at the surface of the fecal matter can be reached by the chlorine, so other children can easily swallow the microscopic polio-infested bits of fecal matter. And actual studies from water samples from swimming pools found that chlorine had been effective at killing bacteria; but not viruses Keswick, ; see also: Bates, ; Payment, ; Sinclair, However, to repeat what I wrote above:.
It is not the incidence of a disease that is most relevant, otherwise all the diseases included in Humphries graph pale compared to the common cold and even food poisoning, which an estimated 1 in 6 Americans 48 million people get every year, resulting in Prior to , reported polio cases were not separately characterized as paralytic versus non-paralytic. Humphries argues in her chapter that even the classification of these cases is suspect, lacking laboratory confirmation, and changing criteria for defining paralysis.
In Part 2, I will discuss in more detail criteria for classifying cases, both clinical and laboratory, and differential diagnoses. This is a question worthy of consideration, especially in light of the fact that the rate was far less than other common diseases Humphries, p. As I will discuss in this paper and in Part 2, the fact that some cases were misdiagnosed is not questioned, something one finds in all aspects of medicine; but the vast majority of cases reported as polio were polio!
Figure 5: gives the death rates for polio per , population from from Isabella B, Table 4. The following table from the CDC Pink Book Appendix E allows one to compare death rates from several of the diseases used in Humphries comparison graph. The table also includes paralytic cases separately starting in Appendix E only listed total cases for , so I added in parentheses the number of reported paralytic cases Post-Polio Health International. Reported cases and deaths from vaccine preventable diseases, united states, Note that I will discuss in Part 2 how these cases were confirmed to be polio.
If there was no residual paralysis 60 days after onset, the disease was not considered to be paralytic polio. This change made a huge difference in the documented prevalence of paralytic polio because most people who experience paralysis recover prior to 60 days. Greenberg said:. The change in meant that we were reporting a new disease, namely, paralytic poliomyelitis with a longer-lasting paralysis. Furthermore diagnostic procedures have continued to be refined.
Coxsackie virus and aseptic meningitis have been distinguished from paralytic poliomyelitis. Prior to large numbers of these cases were mislabeled as paralytic poliomyelitis. Thus, simply by changes in diagnostic criteria, the number of paralytic cases was predetermined to decrease in , whether or not any vaccine was used Humphries, p. Note the black portion of each bar. Figure 6: Dr. As a case in point on how much paralytic disease thought to be polio was not at all associated with polioviruses, consider the well-documented Michigan epidemic of This epidemic occurred four years into the Salk vaccine campaign.
An in-depth analysis of the diagnosed cases revealed that more than half of them were not poliovirus associated at all [AND then quotes from the paper] In a large number of paralytic as well as nonparalytic patients poliovirus was not the cause Humphries, p. An additional correlation of clinical and laboratory information was made possible by the fact that of the patients in the Detroit area were examined for muscles weakness 60 days after onset of disease. The results are presented in table 7 [Table 5 below] in terms of the degree of paralysis two months after infections, and they are arranged according to the clinical diagnosis at the time of admission to hospital and according to the results of laboratory tests carried out on specimens from these patients.
It is obvious that most of the patients considered to be nonparalytic on admission were also classified in that category two months later. Virus was isolated from only one-half of those among whom ECHO and Coxsackie viruses were equally responsible with poliovirus for the infections. In Part 2, I will discuss in more depth changing definitions of paralysis, labs, and differential diagnoses; but as should be clear from the above:. So, Humphries displays a callous disregard for the significant number of cases with long-term paralysis and, based on her use of the Brown paper, her credibility is highly questionable!
Humphries probably missed that Greenberg, in discussing the incidence of paralytic polio up to also stated:. The present increase, I believe, is caused by a long-term, increasing trend in the incidence of the condition or disease we now call paralytic poliomyelitis. Without doubt, the increasing trend has been reduced to some extent by the Salk vaccine…If there were no other vaccine, complete vaccination of all susceptible persons in the population with Salk vaccine would be justifiable Ratner, , p.
Humphries probably missed that Greenberg later chaired the Committee for the Study of Poliomyelitis Vaccines finding:. The development of vaccines against poliomyelitis has been a major achievement of modern preventive medicine. It might seem remarkable that United States policies in regard to poliomyelitis vaccination are being reexamined in view of the extraordinary success of the present program.
Recently, serious questions have been raised about the present policy that advocates the use of the live attenuated oral poliovirus vaccine OPV to the virtual exclusion of the killed, or inactivated poliomyelitis vaccine IPV. This policy has been in effect since when the decision was made to change from the use of IPV even though paralytic disease had decreased dramatically in the eight years since its introduction [my emphasis]. In considering the available data with particular reference to the experience in countries where only IPV has been used, the committee concluded that when properly used, either vaccine is highly effective both in preventing disease and in reducing circulation of wild virus in the community.
To achieve more than 90 percent immunization status—as other countries have already done—as soon as possible. When this goal is achieved, contact cases will virtually disappear. Within five years aim for no less than 80 percent immunization status; in 10 years, for no less than 90 percent immunization status Greenberg, , pp. So, with further data, based on the criteria for paralysis that Greenberg used to adjust the earlier data, where he concluded the vaccine reduced the incidence of cases, with additional data, his original conclusion not only was right, but proved even more valid.
How did Humphries miss this? Just to be clear, the changed definition of paralytic cases explained by Greenberg did eliminate a substantial number of cases of paralysis, as many as 30, during the first half of the s; but a significant number of paralytic cases remained and in the following years, based on the revised definition, following the introduction of the vaccine, these numbers continued to decline until there were none, so, whatever some claim, the evidence for the effectiveness of the vaccine is substantial and undeniable.
And finally, Bruno makes a compelling case that the total number of people infected with the virus, even some with mild paralysis, was actually underestimated. And as discussed below under the subheading, Post-polio syndrome , the polio virus did result in severe neuron damage in many of these cases. Bruno writes:. Patients Did Not Present for Diagnosis. Failure to present for diagnosis may have resulted from symptoms being very mild or not being seen as indicative of poliovirus infection and from patients, especially those who were poor, not having access to or being financially unable to travel for medical care.
Paralytic Polio Was Underdiagnosed. Studies document the underdiagnosis of paralytic polio. Polio Cases Were Not Reported. Although diagnosis may have been more accurate and reporting to public health authorities more likely at city hospitals, the number and severity of polio cases during the epidemics may have prevented overwhelmed physicians from reporting the occurrence of polio, especially NPP, to local public health authorities…Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control did not separately tabulate cases of nonparalytic and paralytic polio until and did not require the reporting of polio cases until the late s Bruno, Wild poliovirus was never the big killer or paralyzer the public was led to believe it was through the many frightening images shown repeatedly in the s.
Lennette, a well-respected virologist and pioneer of diagnostic virology with the California Department of Health, said in reflection on September Secondly, not many cases were seen in this country. Humphries, p. In addition, some 1,, preschool age children are recognized each year to have cerebral palsy Texas Adoption Resource Exchange, And as discussed below, approximately 4, new cases of Muscular Dystrophy are reported in the U.
Census Bureau counted 39, general purpose local governments, which includes 19, municipal governments, 16, township governments and 3. So, the likelihood of one, let alone more of any of the above in a neighborhood is small. Yet, many Americans were and are aware of them and support efforts, both research and care. Yes, there were more people who went into the field because Roosevelt was dramatizing his incapacities—not intentionally—but he was dramatizing in the sense that, whenever he got up to get to the podium to speak, it was quite an effort on his part. He was really handicapped. And this gave people some awareness of what the disease was all about [my emphasis] Hughes, , p.
Keep in mind that from the epidemic on many neighborhoods had witnessed first-hand paralytic poliomyelitis. Figure 1 from Humphries compares apples to oranges. Typhoid fever, caused by a bacterium, was basically eliminated by clean water and other public health measures.
Malaria, a mosquito-borne protozoan, was ended in the US by mainly economic changes together with public health measures. Syphilis is still a problem because it depends on human behavior. Diphtheria began its decline, perhaps based on mutating to a more benign form, with, first, an anti-toxin and then a toxoid vaccine contributing to its further decline. Deaths from measles, a virus, were significantly reduced, reaching an asymptote of an average of per year during the s; but with a substantial amount of suffering, 45, hospitalizations, and up to permanently disabled children.
Whooping cough pertussis , caused by a bacterium, was reduced and almost eliminated in the United States by vaccines. In addition, while Humphries figure uses incidence, I think most people would care more about the degree of suffering, deaths, and disabilities. And ALL of the above, except syphilis began declining, some as early as the late 19th century. Though deaths from pertussis, measles, and diphtheria continued from the end of World War II into the early s, they were lower than earlier and continued their decline, while polio was on the ascendance, including both deaths and disability.
Despite changing definitions of paralytic poliomyelitis and errors in misdiagnosis, the majority of cases were correctly diagnosed and, actually, the total number of cases of those infected with polio virus was more than likely underestimated. The disease reached its peak at the height of the cold war, when a national crisis often took the form of a crusade. And this particular crisis, an epidemic targeting defenseless children, grew to increasingly dramatic proportions in an increasingly suburban, family-oriented society preaching ever-higher standards of protection for the young. No disease drew as much attention, or struck the same terror, as polio.
And for good reason. Polio hit without warning. There was no way of telling who would get it and who would be spared. It killed some of its victims and marked others for life, leaving behind vivid reminders for all to see: wheelchairs, crutches, leg braces, breathing devices, deformed limbs Oshinsky, , pp.
Polio outbreaks were smaller than the epidemics of classic scourges such as cholera and plague; but they came into their own while these time-honored killers were being seen off…The contrast between extinct threats and the new curse coming into its ascendancy appeared particularly stark from the s onwards. Tried and tested public health measures were powerless to prevent polio. I think about the weekend spent at the Cornbury Music Festival, the children running around with animal-shaped helium balloons.
