Marcia Falconer, Ph.D. - Biographical Details

Title: Non-Paralytic Polio and PPS
[ Full Text Here ] Author(s): Marcia Falconer, Ph.D. cell biology and Eddie Bollenbach, M.A. biology
Original Publication: Lincolnshire Post-Polio Library Publication, January 1999
Abstract/Extract: Post-Polio Syndrome can occur in nearly half of the people who have a history of non-paralytic polio. It was believed that no neuronal damage occurred during non-paralytic polio. However autopsies of non-paralytic polio cases show that damage to the central nervous system could be almost as severe as that found in cases of paralytic polio. The causes of post-polio syndrome remain unknown but may include loss of neurons compromised during the acute illness, persistent poliovirus infection, and immune reactions. Some cases of non-paralytic polio were caused by enteroviruses other than polio virus. During the acute illness, the symptoms mimicked that of poliomyelitis. It is not known if such infections will result in fatigue and new muscle weakness many years after the acute illness. A history of any kind of polio, indicates the disease may have been severe enough to result in neuronal damage and consequently may put the person at risk for post-polio syndrome.

Title: Post-Polio And Physical Therapy
[ Full Text Here ] Also reproduced in Issue No.3 - January 1997 of LINK-PIN
Author(s): Susan L Fish MAPT
Abstract/Extract: During recent years, I have had the opportunity to meet and work with patients experiencing the late effects of polio. Many times I have detected some frustration and anger regarding my professionals lack of experience in treating Post-Polio patients. I write this brief article now for two reasons.
  1. to explain and help you understand this lack of knowledge on the part of many of my colleagues.
  2. to provide some guidelines regarding Do's and Don'ts when seeking physical therapy.

Title: Health and Demographic Characteristics of Polio Survivors
[ Full Text Here ] Author(s): Sandra S. French and G. Sam Sloss
Original Publication: Lincolnshire Post-Polio Library April 1999.
Abstract/Extract: Since 1985, the Louisville and Ashland, Kentucky chapters of the Polio Survivors Organization have collected questionnaire data from polio survivors. The questionnaires included data on Social and demographic data - e.g., age, sex, education, and employment history; Polio history - e.g., dates, types, and treatments; and Current health problems - e.g., fatigue, depression, and breathing problems. Respondents include people from the east coast to the west coast and from states bordering both Canada and Mexico. The 295 respondents live in 202 different zip code areas with no more than three people from any one zip code. This article reports on the data from this sample of polio survivors.

Title: The Contribution Of Childhood Physical And Emotional Trauma To The Development Of The Post-Polio Personality
[ Full Text Here ] Author(s): Nancy M. Frick, M.Div, Lh.D.
Original Publication: Proceedings of the Ontario March of Dimes Conference on Post-Polio Sequelae. Toronto: Ontario March of Dimes, 1995. Revised April 2000.
Abstract/Extract: Do you remember the old TV program Truth or Consequences? The master of ceremonies used to ask questions and if contestants answered them correctly, they got lots of great prizes, dishwashers and so on, and presumably went home and lived happily ever after. But, if they answered the questions incorrectly, terrible things would happen to them. As you read on, you will be asked many questions about yourself. If your answers are incorrect, the consequences for you will be Post-Polio Sequelae (PPS).

Original Publication: Rehabilitation Literature, 1986; 47 (5-6): 106-111.
Abstract/Extract: When the Salk and Sabin vaccines brought an end to the annual summer nightmare of polio epidemics, most Americans simply forgot about polio. Even many of those who had paralytic poliomyelitis put the disease out of their minds once they had achieved maximum recovery of function. Unfortunately, polio has again forced itself into the nation's consciousness. Over the past five years, many of those who had polio have been experiencing new and unexpected symptoms that range in severity from being merely unpleasant to severely debilitating:

NOTES

It is the intention of the Lincolnshire Post-Polio Network to make all the information we collect available regardless of our views as to it's content. The inclusion of a document in this library should not therefore be in any way interpreted as an endorsement.

People who had polio and are experiencing new symptoms need to be assessed by medical professionals who are experienced in Post-Polio to determine what is wrong and to give correct advice. We can only make these documents available to you. YOU must then take what you believe to be relevant to the medical professional you are seeing. We are collecting and collating everything we can to enable medical professionals to make informed decisions. Other medical conditions must be looked for first, Post-Polio Syndrome is by diagnosis of exclusion.

"Source" in the context of this catalogue primarily means original author. In a few cases it will be an organisation or conference.
