T he Polio Information Center Online (PICO) provides information about poliovirus, the causative agent of paralytic poliomyelitis and also an important model system for studying viruses in the family Picornaviridae. This family contains viruses which cause such conditions as the common cold, encephalitis, aseptic meningitis, and hepatitis, to name a few. Thus, while the Salk and Sabin vaccines have significantly reduced the threat of paralysis by polio, there are still good reasons to study this virus.

What is Post-Polio Syndrome?
Post-Polio Syndrome (PPS) is a condition that can strike polio survivors anywhere from 10 to 40 years after their recovery from polio. PPS is caused by the death of individual nerve terminals in the motor units that remain after the initial polio attack. Symptoms include fatigue, slowly progressive muscle weakness, muscle and joint pain, and muscular atrophy. The severity of PPS depends upon how seriously the survivors were affected by the first polio attack. Doctors estimate the incidence of PPS at about 25 percent of the survivor population. The only way to be sure a person has PPS is through a neurological examination aided by other laboratory studies (for example, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), neuroimaging, electrophysiological studies, and muscle biopsies or spinal fluid analysis). 6/20/01

    Some twenty or thirty years after contracting polio, 70% of people experience new symptoms.
    These symptoms may include:
    • new muscle weakness
    • joint and muscle pain
    • breathing problems
    The severity of these symptoms may slowly increase.
    Research into the late effects of polio is under way. Some possible causes are:
    • the overuse of polio-weakened muscles leading to deterioration
    • the premature ageing of nerve cells damaged by infection
    • a diminished ability for polio-affected muscles to continue functioning normally
    Suggestions for the relief of symptoms include:
    • energy conservation
    • weight control
    • posture changes
    • relaxation and stress management
    The objectives of the Network are:
    • to provide advice through an information kit, regular newsletters, web site and bulletins

    What is post-polio syndrome?
    Post-polio syndrome (PPS) is a condition that can strike polio survivors anywhere from 10 to 40 years after recovery from an initial attack of the poliomyelitis virus. PPS is characterized by a further weakening of muscles that were previously injured by polio infection. Symptoms include fatigue, slowly progressive muscle weakness, muscle and joint pain, and muscular atrophy. Some patients experience only minor symptoms, while others develop spinal muscular atrophy or what appears to be, but is not, a form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also called Lou Gehrig's disease. PPS is rarely life-threatening. The extent to which polio survivors will suffer from PPS depends on how seriously they were affected by the first polio attack. Patients who had only minimal symptoms from the original attack and subsequently develop PPS will most likely experience only mild PPS symptoms. People originally hit hard by the polio virus may develop a more severe case of PPS with a greater loss of muscle function, difficulty in swallowing, and more periods of fatigue.

    August 1997 Should Polio Vaccinations End? Experts Still Debating Scientists declared the Western Hemisphere "polio-free" in 1994; two years later, only 4,000 cases were reported worldwide. Wild polio virus has been largely confined to South Asia and Africa; complete eradication of the disease is expected by 2003. As a result, World Health Organization (WHO) officials are now exploring strategies for bringing an end to polio vaccinations. In a "Policy Forum" in the August 8 issue of Science , one pair of scientists at WHO in Geneva and another pair at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York square off on some of the issues involved.

    Introduction 4 March 2003 - UNICEF: 4 million children vaccinated against polio in Iraq World acclaimed Brazilian photographer and UNICEF Special Representative Sebastião Salgado documents the end of polio. A web site featuring selected photos is on line at For many in the industrialized world, vaccines have relegated polio to history books, along with paralyzed legs, 'iron lungs' and deaths due to the disease. Since its launch in 1988, the Global Polio Eradication Initiative has helped eliminate indigenours wild poliovirus from 125 countries. In 2001, the number of polio-endemic countries was reduced from 20 to ten. By the end of 2002, the poliovirus was circulating in only seven coutnreis including Afghanistan, Egypt, India, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan and Somalia. In these countries, polio is isolated to limited areas. But as long as polio exists anywhere, it threatens children's lives. The remaining seven countries pose the greatest challenge. Today, the massive global campaign to eradicate polio continues. When it succeeds, polio will be the second disease in history following smallpox to be eradicated.

    Have you ever simply wanted to lay in the sun and veg all day?
    Perhaps it's too difficult to reach the backyard, or the front yard. We all need time to "play," to let the child within come forth and when the sun is warm and calling our name, if we can't get to the door or through the door, some of that desire to play, some of that child within, is going to give up, and we would then find ourselves a prisoner in our own home. Some of us are bedridden, and for those who are, these pages will help to bring the sunshine to you, with lots of jokes and laughter, stories of our adventures and the crazy antics of the animals that are willing to let us share the house with them. Also some ideas of how to make doorways/step-downs, more accessible for those in wheelchairs or scooters.
