CURRENT TRENDS
POST-INFECTIOUS ENCEPHALITIS

During the first quarter of 1966, 209 cases of post-
infectious encephalitis of specified etiology were notified
from 18 States (Table 1). For the comparable period in
1965 there were 187 reported cases of post-infectious
encephalitis. Mumps was the most frequently reported
cause of encephalitis in both years, accounting for more
than one-half the total. In the first 13 weeks of 1966, one
case of encephalitis in association with cat scratch
fever occurred in Tennessee.
Measles encephalitis was reported twice as frequently
during the first quarter of 1966 as during the comparable
period in 1965. In some States (Illinois and Kentucky in

Table 2), the increase in measles encephalitis reporting
was parallel to an increase in the reporting of total
measles cases. In Michigan, however, the total reported
measles encephalitis cases increased even though the
total measles incidence reported decreased. Forthe United
States in the first quarter of 1965, the ratio of reported
measles encephalitis to reported measles cases was 0.27

per thousand cases of measles, and in the first quarter of
1966 this ratio was 0.66 per thousand. Some additional
information is available about 10 cases of post-measles
encephalitis in Illinois and 5 cases in Michigan. Thirteen
of the 15 patients were between the ages of 3 years and
8 years, one patient was 16 years old, and one patient


who died was 21 months old. There were 11 males and
4 females. The symptoms ranged from headache and stiff
neck to coma, convulsions, and signs of corticospinal
tract involvement.

Excess mortality due to influenza and pneumonia as
measured in 122 U.S. cities has risen slightly over that
of the previous week, remaining above the epidemic
threshold for the seventh consecutive week. This slight
rise in excess mortality for the 122 cities is no longer
predominantly related to the excess mortality recorded
during the A2 riflueinz- epidemics which have occurred
in the Pacific Hegion The rise is being maintained by


the mortality continuing to occur in the Mountain Region
and to that shown in the Middle and South Atlantic Regions
for the second consecutive week. To date only influenza
type B virus has been reported from these latter two
geographic regions.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


INVESTIGATIONAL VACCINES PROGRAM


The following has1 been communicated by the Lab-
oratory Branch of the Communicable Disease Center:


\ program has been established at the CDC to pro-
1ide vaccines that are needed for human immunization
but are not available from commercial sources. The
objective of the program is to provide qualified medical
investigators with a source of vaccines which have been
proven effective and safe. hut their applications are too
limited to sustain commercial production and distribution.
These steps are being taken on the recommendation of
The Public Health Service Advisory Committee on Immu-
nization Practice.
The first product that will be available in this pro-
gram is the pentavalent (ABCDE) botulinum toxoid,
aluminum phosphate adsorbed, that was developed by
Dr. George G. Wright and associates at the U.S. Army
Biological Laboratories, Fort Detrick. Frederick. Maryland.
The toxoid will be distributed as an Investigational
New Drug. Inquiries and requests for this item should be
addressed to:
Investigational Vaccines Program
Laboratory Branch
Communicable Disease Center
Atlanta, Georgia 30333
Suggestions will be considered regarding additional
prophylactic agents that meet the program objective
stated above and which might be considered for provision
by the Communicable Disease Center in the future.
