illnesses are related. Field and laboratory studies are
in progress in several areas.

Poliomyelitis There were 19 cases of poliomye-
litis, 9 paralytic, reported for the week ending November
25. For the preceding week, there were 30 cases, 23
paralytic. The 19 cases reported this week represent
the lowest since the 11 cases for the week ending
July 22.

Hepatitis The 1,129 cases of hepatitis reported
for the 47th week are 86 cases less than reported for
the 46th week. This represents 240 more cases than were
reported for the 47th week of 1960. There has been a
slight increase in the number of cases of hepatitis re-
ported in the Middle Atlantic and South Atlantic States.

EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORTS
Infectious Hepatitis Alaska Progress Report
From June through September 1961, 103 cases of
infectious hepatitis occurred in the closely associated
Alaskan Indian villages of Hoonah and Excursion Inlet.
The mode of transmission of the disease was thought to
be primarily person to person.
Hoonah is a fishing village with a winter population
of 798 Tlingit Indians. It is situated on an island 40
miles west of Juneau. Excursion Inlet is located 20 miles
away from Hoonah and has a summer population of ap-
proximately 300. About 150 of the inhabitants of Hoonah
work in the salmon factory at Excursion Inlet during the
summers. An initial report on the infectious hepatitis
outbreak occurring there appeared in MMWR, Vol. 10,
No. 34. This report gives further information on the out-
break and describes the results of the gamma globulin
trials.
The time distribution of the cases of hepatitis, 84%
of which were icteric, is shown in the graph below:

At the height of the epidemic, between August 9 and
August 12, 89% of the susceptible populations of Hoonah
and Excursion Inlet were given immune globulin. Two
hundred and seventeen received 0.06 cc. per pound, 221
received 0.01 cc. per pound, and 204 received 0. 05 cc.
per pound. A total of 80 individuals was absent at the
time of administration of gamma globulin and did nor
receive any globulin. The age distribution of the three
groups who received the different dosages of immune
globulin was approximately the same; however, the in-
dividuals who did not receive gamma globulin fell into
the older age groups. After the administration of immune
globulin, 27 cases of infectious hepatitis occurred.

Fifteen of these cases occurred within 6 days after
the administration of gamma globulin. The 12 other cases
were distributed as follows: 2 cases, one icteric the
other anicteric, occurred in the group that had received
0.06 cc. per pound of globulin; 3 cases, 2 icteric and one
anicteric, occurred in the group that had received 0.01 cc.
per pound immune globulin; 2 cases, both icteric, occurred
in the group that had received 0.005 cc. per pound immune
globulin; and 5 icteric cases occurred in the 80 individ-
uals who had not received immune globulin. There was
very little difference in the protection afforded by the
different dosages of gamma globulin. Of the 642 individ-
uals who had received gamma globulin, 7 or 1.1% devel-
oped hepatitis. On the other hand, of the 80 individuals
who had received no immune globulin, 5 or 6.2% developed
hepatitis. No cases of hepatitis have appeared in Hoonah
or Excursion Inlet since the 23rd of September.

Dr. E. O. Wicks, Director, and a team from the Arctic
Health Research Center and the Communicable Disease
Center).


E. coli Diarrhea Washington
Between October 2 and October 26, 1961 isolates of
enteropathic E. coli serotype 0111:B4 were obtained from
12 patients on one pediatric ward in a hospital in the
State of Washington. Three of the patients had severe
diarrhea; in the remainder the severity ranged from mod-
erate diarrhea to none at all. All patients on the ward
were under one year of age; several were premature in-
fants. The ward census ranged from 28 to 36 with a me-
dian census of 32 patients.

Morbidity and Mrtality Weekly Report


The chart shows the number of deaths reported for
117 major cities of the United States by week for the cur-
rent year, a 5-week moving average of these figures
plotted at the central week, and an adjusted average for
comparison. For each region the adjusted average was
computed as follows: From the total deaths reported each
week for the years 1956-1960, 3 central figures were
selected by eliminating the highest and lowest figure
reported for that week. A 5-week moving average of the
arithmetic mean of the 3 central figures was then com-
puted with adjustment to allow for population growth in
each region. The average value of the regional increases
was 2 percent which was incorporated in the adjusted
average shown in the chart.
Table 4 shows the number of death certificates re-


ceived during the week indicated for deaths that occurred
in selected cities. Figures compiled in this way, by week
of receipt, usually approximate closely the number of
deaths occurring during the week. However, differences
are to be expected because of variations in the interval
between death and receipt of the certificate and because
of incomplete reporting due to holidays or vacations. If a
report is not received from a city in time to be included
in the total for the current week, an estimate is used.
The number of deaths in cities of the same size may
also differ because of variations in the age, race, and sex
composition of the populations and because some cities
are hospital centers serving the surrounding areas. Changes
from year to year in the number of deaths may be due in
part to population increases or decreases.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


In the following table, data on the 12 infected pa-
tients are given for age, sex, date of admission to hospi-

specimen if no diarrhea occurred), and admitting diagnosis:

An additional infant with coarctation of the aorta and
and recurring cardiac failure was discharged from this
ward on October 2, 1961 and admitted to another hospital
the following day. Diarrhea began on October 6 and entero-
pathic E. colt, serotype 0111:B4 were isolated from the
stool. This child died.
On October 23 the ward was closed to new admis-
sions, and all patients were started on Neomycin 0.1 gm.
per kilogram of body weight every 24 hours. Treatment
was given for 7 to 10 days. By November 7th 10 patients
remained on the ward and Neomycin was discontinued.
Reculturing of the patients on November 10 revealed two
positive isolations for 0111:B4. These two cases were
restarted on Neomycin and on November 13 transferred to
a ward of older children. The ward rooms were cleaned
and repainted prior to the reopening of the ward to new
patients.

During the calendar year of 1960, 30 enteropathic
E. coli isolations were made in the Seattle-King County
Department of Public Health. Through October 31, 1961
there were 26 isolations implicating 7 different serotypes.

0119:B14 3
055:B5 2
0127:B8 1
0111:B4 12 (9 hospital outbreak)
0126:B16 2
26 (25 Patients)


One of the patients from whom serotype 0126:B16 was
isolated yielded 0111:B4 on follow-up examination. All
of these patients were less than 2 years of age except
one, a physician whose diarrhea began while traveling in
Mexico and from whom the serotype, 0127:B8, was ob-
tained. These isolations were made throughout the year.


Twelve of the 25 patients were reported from physicians'
offices rather than hospitals.
(Reported by Dr. Donald R. Peterson, Director, Division
of Epidemiology and Communicable Disease Control of
Seattle-King County Health Department; and Dr. Ernest A.
Ager, Head Communicable Disease Control, State of
Washington Department of Health.)
