ABSTRACT

To the Editor:  —Readers have been informed of the tragic casualties that occurred in Lübeck, in the spring of 1930, following vaccinations with a vaccine that had been prepared at the laboratory of the municipal hospital from subcultures of the B C G strain, issued by the Pasteur Institute in Paris. Before the German sanitary authorities had made known the results of their investigations into the matter, many papers were published, in which the B C G was held responsible for the mortality in Lübeck.It is now known that the B C G cannot be held responsible for these accidents. The official statement issued by the German ministry of the interior, in particular the one dated September 10, and the thorough study of the B C G vaccination, contained in the reports of experts from various countries at the International Tuberculosis Conference at Oslo in August, provide precise information.
