I personally find the implications for the eventual eradication of varicella most exciting, as presented by Asano et al. (Pediatrics 59:3, January 1977). To safely prepare such a vaccine for mass use would surely require most stringent safeguards (more stringent than those used in the measles vaccine trials).
Now, addressing myself to the comments of Dr. Brunell in the same issue (p. 1), I have a few observations from the standpoint of a solo practitioner of pediatrics for 27 years.
