The Influence of Capacity Development on the Values of Good Governance
This study aims to understand the influence of human resource capacity development by using variable dimension of individual, organizational, and system development on the values of good governance


Cultivation of Poliomyelitis Virus in vitro in Human Embryonic Nervous Tissue
The problem of cultivating the virus of poliomyelitis is being pursued not only for the further elucidation of the nature of the virus but also in the hope that successful in vitro propagation may facilitate attempts at adaptation to new hosts and tissues and provide new material for further experimentation on active immunization.
Is Polio Eradication Realistic?
Polio may be much more difficult to eradicate than smallpox. Efforts should shift from global eradication to a goal of bringing the disease under control.
The Transmission of Acute Poliomyelitis to Monkeys
Poliomyelitis or infantile paralysis prevailed in epidemic form along the Atlantic seaboard in the summer of 1907 and reappeared as a focalized epidemic in Greater New York and had, by that time, spread widely throughout the United States and Europe.

Scientists found that two production pools of the polio vaccine contained live poliovirus, one of the worst pharmaceutical disasters in U.S. history.
Polio Experts Strive to Understand a Puzzling Outbreak
Health authorities in Namibia are scrambling to vaccinate the entire population against poliovirus, which has resurfaced after a 10-year absence in a highly unusual--and deadly--outbreak.
Polio Eradication: Is It Time to Give Up?
In a Policy Forum in this issue of Science, a handful of experts reluctantly conclude that polio may never be wiped out but argue that control may be a better goal than eradication.

The presumption that this group of agents isolated in cultures of human or simian renal cells is composed of representatives of the viral species responsible for measles is supported.
