Little evidence Tamiflu works: British researchers
The Associated Press
Date: Tuesday Dec. 8, 2009 2:59 PM ET
LONDON — British researchers say there is little evidence Tamiflu stops complications in healthy people who catch the flu, though public health officials contend the swine flu drug reduces flu hospitalizations and deaths.
Researchers at the Cochrane Review, an international nonprofit that reviews health information, looked at previously published papers on Tamiflu as used for seasonal flu. They found insufficient data to prove whether the antiviral reduces complications like pneumonia in otherwise healthy people but concluded the drug shortens flu symptoms by about a day. The papers were published online Tuesday in the British journal, BMJ.
The researchers said the benefits of Tamiflu were small and that authorities should consider its side effects before using the drug in healthy people. While the reviewed studies only looked at Tamiflu use for seasonal flu, the experts said their conclusions raised questions about the widespread use of the drug in people with any flu-like illness, including swine flu.
Fiona Godlee, BMJ's editor, said the papers cast doubt not only on how safe and effective Tamiflu is, but on the drug regulatory system that approved it. "Governments around the world have spent billions of pounds (dollars) on a drug that the scientific community now finds itself unable to judge," she said in a statement.
But the World Health Organization disagreed. They said data from countries around the world show that when given early, Tamiflu can reduce the severity of swine flu symptoms, though the agency recommends the drug be saved for people at risk of complications, like pregnant women, the elderly, children, and those with underlying medical problems.
"This will not change our (Tamiflu) guidelines," said Charles Penn, a WHO antivirals expert. Penn said that while past studies show Tamiflu only has a modest benefit, when patients with severe illness or at risk of complications are treated early, there are fewer hospitalizations and deaths.
And Roche, the maker of Tamiflu, defended the drug, saying in a statement that they "firmly believe in the robustness of the data."
Both the British researchers and WHO said there is little evidence to support the widespread use of Tamiflu in otherwise healthy people -- precisely the policy Britain has adopted to fight swine flu.
In addition to recommending Tamiflu be saved for at-risk groups, WHO recommends Tamiflu only be used on a doctor's recommendation.
In Britain, however, Tamiflu is regularly dispensed to healthy people who catch the flu. The drug is given out via a national swine flu hotline by call center workers with no medical training.

Monday, Dec. 7, 2009
New York Autopsies Show 2009 H1N1 Influenza Virus Damages Entire Airway
In fatal cases of 2009 H1N1 influenza, the virus can damage cells throughout the respiratory airway, much like the viruses that caused the 1918 and 1957 influenza pandemics, report researchers from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner. The scientists reviewed autopsy reports, hospital records and other clinical data from 34 people who died of 2009 H1N1 influenza infection between May 15 and July 9, 2009. All but two of the deaths occurred in New York City. A microscopic examination of tissues throughout the airways revealed that the virus caused damage primarily to the upper airway—the trachea and bronchial tubes—but tissue damage in the lower airway, including deep in the lungs, was present as well. Evidence of secondary bacterial infection was seen in more than half of the victims.
The team was led by James R. Gill, M.D., of the New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner and New York University School of Medicine, and Jeffery K. Taubenberger, M.D., Ph.D., of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at NIH. The findings are reported in the Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, now available online and scheduled to appear in the February 2010 print issue.
“This study provides clinicians with a clear and detailed picture of the disease caused by 2009 H1N1 influenza virus that will help inform patient management,” says NIAID Director Anthony S. Fauci, M.D. “In fatal cases of 2009 H1N1 influenza, it appears the novel pandemic influenza virus produces pulmonary damage that looks very much like that seen in earlier influenza pandemics.”
The new report also underscores the impact 2009 H1N1 influenza is having on younger people. While most deaths from seasonal influenza occur in adults over 65 years old, deaths from 2009 H1N1 influenza occur predominately among younger people. The majority of deaths (62 percent) in the 34 cases studied were among those 25 to 49 years old; two infants were also among the fatal cases.
Ninety-one percent of those autopsied had underlying medical conditions, such as heart disease or respiratory disease, including asthma, before becoming ill with 2009 H1N1 influenza. Seventy-two percent of the adults and adolescents who died were obese. This finding agrees with earlier reports, based on hospital records, linking obesity with an increased risk of death from 2009 H1N1 influenza.
The researchers examined tissue samples from the 34 deceased individuals to assess how 2009 H1N1 influenza virus damaged various parts of the respiratory system. “We saw a spectrum of damage to tissue in both the upper and lower respiratory tracts,” says Dr. Taubenberger. In all cases, the uppermost regions of the respiratory tract—the trachea and bronchial tubes—were inflamed, with severe damage in some cases. In 18 cases, evidence of damage lower down in the finer branches of the bronchial tubes, or bronchioles, was noted. In 25 cases, the researchers found damage to the small globular air sacs, or alveoli, of the lungs.
“This pattern of pathology in the airway tissues is similar to that reported in autopsy findings of victims of both the 1918 and 1957 influenza pandemics,” notes Dr. Taubenberger.
The researchers also examined 33 of the 34 cases for evidence of pulmonary bacterial infections. Of these cases, 18 (55 percent) were positive for such infections. Not all of those individuals who had bacterial pneumonia along with 2009 H1N1 virus infection had been hospitalized, however, indicating that some had acquired their bacterial infections outside of a health-care setting. This raises the possibility, say the authors, that community-acquired bacterial pneumonia is playing a role in the current pandemic. “Even in an era of widespread and early antibiotic use,” write the authors, “bacterial pneumonia remains an important factor for severe or fatal influenza.”
Computerized tomography (CT) lung images were available in four cases of pulmonary bacterial infection. In all four cases, the CT scans showed an abnormality known as ground-glass opacity, which are patches of rounded haze not seen in normal lung images. It is not known, say the researchers, whether the abnormalities detected by CT in the four cases also occur in people who have milder H1N1 infections. They call for additional investigation into the utility of CT scans as a tool to help clinicians identify and better treat severe H1N1 infections.

"Corporate employers got scarce flu vaccine" article - Looks Like As much Propaganda articles as possible 12/08/09 5:43pm
Corporate employers got scarce flu vaccine


USA Today is running this story.

A couple of thoughts,

First, they are not stopping the propaganda to try and get people riled up - over those "hated" Wall Street Bankers and Big Corp. people getting the Swine Flu vaccine before all the high risk and normal people.

Second, Makes you wonder what vaccine they got, is the same as all the normal folks are suppose to get? Or is it, like they did in Germany, where the Elite, government and military got one vaccine, but the normal people were getting another?

Paragraph of Article:


USA TODAY examined how state health departments distributed H1N1 vaccine after public outcry last month over Wall Street firms such as Goldman Sachs receiving doses while doctors and hospitals encountered shortages. The data show other companies got the vaccine in October and early November. In some cases, early doses went to people not deemed most at risk by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Israel to send swine flu drug to Gaza 12/10/09 7:45am
Israel to send swine flu drug to Gaza

-Uh, I am not sure they will Trust that Vaccine, after What Israel has done to the people of Gaza. I sure in the Hell would not touch it with anything if I was in Gaza and this was coming from Israel. Talk about a way to get rid of all the people by putting something in the vaccine that could/would spread fast. It would only take a few people to get the vaccine for something to go around all fo Gaza.

Article:


JERUSALEM - Israeli authorities said on Thursday they will send up to 40,000 doses of swine flu vaccine to the Gaza Strip, where six people have died of the virus in the past five days.

“We will transfer between 30,000 and 40,000 vaccines that were supplied by the World Health Organisation, since the security closures don’t stop the spread of illnesses,” said Colonel Moshe Levy, who heads the Israeli liaison office for Gaza.

Israel has already provided 10,000 doses to the Hamas-ruled Palestinian territory, where it maintains a blockade in a bid to halt rocket fire from Palestinian militants.

Hospital masks and anti-bacterial hand gels have vanished from the shelves in Gaza in recent days as fear spread after the first reported deaths from the A(H1N1) virus.

In Israel, 67 people have died from the disease.

Swine Flu Accidentally Resurrected From the Dead? 12/10/09 7:33am
Swine Flu Accidentally Resurrected From the Dead?

This was Not an accident and the article hints at that at the end of it.

Article:


Amid an unsettling report today of Tamiflu resistance in a Danish A(H1N1) patient, comes a study in The New England Journal of Medicine tracing the swine flu's 90-year evolution.

The current flu strain has genetic roots in an illness that sickened pigs at a swine show in 1918 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. A near-century of development since then may include this flu's accidental resurrection from an extinct strain.

Here's what likely went down. At the same time the 1918 flu pandemic was spreading among humans, pigs were hit with a similar respiratory illness. Early experiments confirmed the 1918 swine virus and a human strain emerged about the same time.

According to the authors of the new paper, there was a temporary "extinction" of this strain of virus from humans in 1957. But then it reemerged 20 years later in a small 230-person outbreak in 1976 among soldiers in Fort Dix, New Jersey. That outbreak did not extend beyond the military base.

However the next year H1N1 reemerged in people in the Soviet Union, Hong Kong, and northeastern China. The genetic origin of that 1977 strain turns out not to be the 1976 Fort Dix strain. Instead, it was closely related to a 1950 human strain.

Which means that given the genetic similarity of the two strains, reemergence was likely due to an accidental release during laboratory studies of the 1950 strain that had been preserved as a "freezer" virus.

Ouch. Hate it when that happens.

The authors hypothesize that concerns about the Fort Dix outbreak stimulated a flurry of research on H1N1 viruses in 1976, which led to an accidental release and reemergence of the previously extinct virus a year later. The reemerged 1977 H1N1 strain has been circulating in various seasonal influenzas ever since—including today's.


Or maybe it wasn't such an accidental a release? Conspiracists, restart your engines.

Plans drawn up to ensure swine flu vaccine given to under-fives 12/10/09 7:28am
Plans drawn up to ensure swine flu vaccine given to under-fives

Article:


Plans are being drawn up to ensure under-fives are given a swine flu vaccination.

They are the next at-risk group in line to receive the immunisation from the NHS.

Nationally, the Government and GPs have failed to reach an agreement on the swine flu vaccination programme for under-fives.

Ministers had offered doctors £5.25 per dose plus a "small concession'' to vaccinate healthy children aged from six months to five.

But the two sides have been unable to agree on how doctors will be compensated for carrying out the vaccinations.

The Government has now asked primary care trusts to come up with plans for handling immunisation in their area.

Dr Peter Marks said: "The NHS in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland is committed to the vaccination of healthy children aged six months up to five years.

"This age group has been identified as being quite vulnerable to the virus and should be given this extra protection.

Staff at GP practices have been doing a magnificent job vaccinating thousands of people in the phase one at-risk groups and still have many patients to see.

"Meanwhile, parents of healthy children who are aged from six months but who are not yet five, should wait until they are invited to attend a vaccination session."

The trust said children's vaccinations would start once the most at-risk group had been immunised, but could not confirm when this would be.

The most at risk include patients with underlying health conditions, such as liver, kidney, heart and lung disease, as well as pregnant women and people who are living with patients with a reduced immunity.

UPDATE 12/10/09 7:51AM

Agreement reached - kids are to get the Swine Flu Vaccine in U.K.


Children to get swine flu vaccine

Children in the region will get the swine flu vaccine as the NHS in the North East is the first to reach a deal with GPs for the next phase of the vaccinating campaign.
Plans to vaccinate healthy children aged from six months to five against the virus suffered a setback after talks between the Government and doctors broke down earlier this week.

But Martin Wilson, director of NHS flu resilience in the region, said: "I can confirm that we have reached agreement with GPs via the six local medical committees across the North East to implement the next phase of the swine flu vaccination programme.

"GP surgeries in the region will receive the same payment agreed for the original at risk priority groups.

"This is great news for patients in the North East and I would like to thank GPs across the region for their ongoing hard work in the fight against this virus and their clear commitment to ensure that vaccination of at risk children can begin seamlessly.

"We have committed to further local discussions about actual impact on practices once we see what the uptake of the vaccine is for children in the six months to under five years group.

"The supply of the swine flu vaccine is increasing and we should therefore be able to begin vaccinating children before Christmas. Parents of children in the priority group will receive further information as soon as the vaccination of the original at risk groups in each practice is complete."

Swine flu: Transmission of Tamiflu-resistant H1N1 on Vietnamese train 'a concern' 12/10/09 7:22am
Swine flu: Transmission of Tamiflu-resistant H1N1 on Vietnamese train 'a concern'



Article:


TORONTO — Seven healthy people on a train from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi in Vietnam caught Tamiflu-resistant H1N1 flu, researchers reported Wednesday in a prominent medical journal.

The transmission event, which occurred in July
, is one of the largest clusters of cases of resistant H1N1 seen so far and the first time so many linked cases have been seen in previously healthy people who had not been on the drug.

Surveillance since the summer has only turned up three additional drug resistant viruses, the authors note in their letter to the New England Journal of Medicine. But they say they cannot rule out the possibility of ongoing transmission of resistant pandemic H1N1.

The event is a warning that resistant viruses can spread among healthy people and more such events may be in store, an antiviral expert with the World Health Organization said.

"What this looks to be is ... the sort of situation we have been alert for, because it's something that we certainly don't want to see happening but need to know about if it does," Charles Penn said in an interview from Geneva.

Penn said this event is different from two recent clusters, in which severely immunocompromised patients in hospitals in Wales and North Carolina developed and probably transmitted among themselves Tamiflu-resistant H1N1 virus. It's known that resistance develops easily in such patients.

This, however, is a case where healthy people, who weren't taking the drug and who had no known contacts with sick people in the week before they fell ill, were infected with resistant viruses — "which is an apparent transmission of the resistant virus in a more normal community setting," Penn said.

"This is different and it does raise the levels of concern. But it also I think reinforces the message that we do need to be constantly monitoring for this. And reporting it as quickly as it's observed."

The scientists, from Vietnam's National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology and Oxford University's clinical research unit in Vietnam, reported that the event first hit the radar in early September when routine screening of H1N1 viruses turned up three with the mutation known to confer resistance to Tamiflu.

The ensuing public health investigation uncovered a tale of a 42-hour train trip in which 10 students who didn't know each other prior to the journey socialized on the train.

Six of the 10 became sick a day or two after arriving at their destination. Two didn't develop symptoms and public health officials were not able to trace two others.

Interestingly, a seventh person who travelled in a different carriage on the same train and who doesn't appear to have been in contact with the students also contracted Tamiflu resistant H1N1 during the trip.

"Ongoing transmission from the cluster was not detected, but the tracing of all contacts was not possible, so ongoing transmission (of resistant virus) cannot be ruled out," the authors wrote, adding that careful use of flu antivirals should be stressed to minimize that risk.

Penn said to date there have been over 100 cases of Tamiflu-resistant H1N1 viruses spotted. About a third have been seen in immunocompromised patients. Of the remaining two-thirds, nearly all have been in people who took the drug to treat or prevent illness, or who had close contact with people who took the drug for one of those purposes.

Prior to this report, he said, there have only been four cases spotted in people who hadn't taken the drug and didn't have traceable exposure to someone who had.

The authors reported they were able to grow viruses from samples from three of the cases.

Penn said the WHO will want to know if the viruses have been checked for other mutations that might account for the seemingly easy spread of resistant viruses. "I think we'll be in touch with the authors."

It used to be thought that flu viruses that developed resistance to Tamiflu would be so weakened by the mutation that confers resistance that they would not be able to spread from person to person. But that belief was shattered in the winter of 2008 when Norway reported a startling rate of Tamiflu resistance in seasonal H1N1 viruses.

Over the next year, the resistant seasonal H1N1 viruses virtually crowded out the Tamiflu-susceptible versions of the virus — a precedent public health authorities don't want to see repeated with the pandemic virus.

"But we are expecting and we've said this, that as the pandemic spreads through this Northern Hemisphere winter and as the medicines continue to be used around the world, the number of sporadic cases is going to rise, as it has been at a steady by small rate," Penn said.

"And then the risk of this sort of event occurring is going to increase with more virus around and those infections being treated."

-Makes you wonder what happened on the train.

14 Month Old Side Effects From Swine Flu Vaccine - Doctor and CDC say No Link 12/10.09 7:11am

14 Month Old Side Effects From Swine Flu Vaccine - Doctor and CDC say No Link


Article:

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- A family whose child received the swine flu vaccine claims it had a serious adverse effect, but some doctors doubt it.

Elisha Garcia said her 14-month-old daughter Mykaylah was born premature and suffers from epilepsy.

"We got her to where she needed to be. We got her seizures under control and she was the happiest little girl," said Elisha Garcia.

Both parents claim it all changed after a visit to their daughter's doctor. Her dad, Damian Garcia, said they were told she should get the swine flu vaccine.

"'It is OK. They haven't found anything wrong with it.' And I said, 'Are you sure?'" Damian Garcia said.

Both parents said they were convinced and Mykaylah got the shot.

"In that two-week period after that, she just started gradually going down and going down," Damian Garcia said. "She would stand up and she would just collapse over."

Tests were done and Mykaylah was diagnosed with ataxia, meaning she has trouble controlling her movements. Her parents claim a neurologist told them the swine flu vaccine could possibly have been a factor, maybe the result of an adverse effect.

Both parents said that there was no doubt the vaccine may have caused the side effect, but one doctor refuted their claims.

"There is no evidence, from the close surveillance, that CDC is giving this vaccine, that there is any such reaction," said pediatrician Dr. Lance Chilton.

Chilton said it's a vaccine that could save lives and he tells his patients to get it.

"I think there is good evidence that No. 1: that it is safe; No. 2: that it is effective and No. 3: that the influenza could come back and hit us as hard as it did in 1957," Chilton said.

More Questioning About WHO and the Vaccines and the Declaration of a Level 6 Pandemic - When no need 12/10/09 10:46am

More Questioning About WHO and the Vaccines and the Declaration of a Level 6 Pandemic - When no need

Article:
translated from Ukrainian

World Health Organization (WHO) declared the pandemic of swine influenza in the interest of large pharmaceutical companies. * With such charges were made by scientists from several countries, who believe that the epidemics of pharmacists earn up to 7 billion euros. * At the same time anywhere in the world death rate from swine flu has not exceeded deaths from seasonal flu, while the WHO insisted that the epidemic was declared by all the rules, writes "Kommersant".

* The British newspaper Guardian Òhe and some European media have published the views of independent epidemiologists - Englishman Thomas Jefferson from the independent association of scientists Cochrane Collaboration and his colleagues from the United States William Engdahl, - accuse the WHO of inflating the risk of swine flu. * Scientists believe that the WHO's lead expert associated with the pharmaceutical companies. * According to Mr. Jefferson, a team of WHO experts, in particular the head of strategic advisory group on Influenza British Professor David Salisbury, "gets them a salary and working with them."

* Independent experts believe that the panic over the virus A/H1N1 provoked expert WHO virologist from the Netherlands, Albert Ostenhaus, which has been in professional circles the nickname Dr. Influenza. * Mr. Ostenhaus many occasions expressed deadly swine flu and urged European countries to mass vaccination.

* According to independent scientists, such policies have led to the fact that the WHO in June this year, announced the upgrade of the threat of swine flu pandemic to the maximum, the sixth level in the interests of business structures, although the mortality rate from this disease did not exceed the death rate from normal seasonal influenza. * According to the latest WHO data, in the world of him died 7826 people. * The last time the WHO announced on the sixth level of the pandemic in 1968, when the Hong Kong strain of influenza virus have died around 1 million people.

* WHO's decision to declare a pandemic caused panic around the world. * Governments of various countries contributed to the purchase of drugs from the swine flu at least 7 billion euros. * The organization strongly recommended for the prevention and treatment of disease, only two drugs - manufactured by Roche Tamiflu and Relenza (manufacturer - GlaxoSmithKline). * According to the company Roche, in 2008, sales of Tamiflu were about $ 600 million, and in 2009, predicted the company, sales will total 2.6 billion dollars

* In Ukraine, according to the Ministry of Health, posted on the official site, since the beginning of the epidemic there were 32 cases of swine influenza (flu and colds just sick over 2.2 million people). * For the treatment and prevention of A/H1N1 in the country was imported 615 thousand packages medication costs 67 UAH per package. * According to the head of the State service of medical products and medical products Constantine Kosyachenko, pharmacies had sold "several hundred packages drugs, after which the government began to distribute" Tamiflu "for free".

* WHO insists that the pandemic has been declared by all the rules. * "In April 2009, when they were first identified human cases of influenza A/H1N1, was quite clear how serious the consequences it might entail - said a special adviser to WHO Director-General for Pandemic Influenza, Keiji Fukuda. - That is why WHO has initiated all possible measures to protect people including cooperation with a number of global partners.

Teen fights for life after reaction to swine flu drug
7:00am Thursday 10th December 2009



A TEENAGER is intensive care and fighting for her life after taking the swine flu drug Tamiflu.
Samantha Millard, of Purslane Drive, Bicester, has blisters all over her body and severe breathing difficulties after being prescribed the medication.
Last night the 18-year-old was in a critical condition and being treated in the specialist burns unit at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital after being transferred from Oxford’s Churchill Hospital.
Doctors fear she may have the life-threatening Stevens-Johnson syndrome, which causes the skin to peel off.
Her mother Deborah, 41, took a picture of Samantha 48 hours after she had taken just three Tamiflu pills.
Last night she was keeping a bed-side vigil, along with Samantha’s half-sister Charley Dale, 23.
Speaking from the family home, her stepfather Bart van Horenbeeck said everyone was “extremely worried” about Samantha.
He told the Oxford Mail: “She is still in intensive care, and we are all very concerned. It all happened so quickly. On Wednesday, she had flu-like symptoms, and did what she was meant to and called the swine flu hotline. Operators prescribed her with Tamiflu.
“The next day she started suffering from a severe reaction and by Friday she was in the Churchill Hospital.”
Samantha had phoned her GP in Bicester, but was directed to the hotline set up to deal with the thousands of people expected to contract the condition.
Stevens-Johnson affects about three in a million people and is most normally triggered by a bad reaction to medication. Around 15 per cent of sufferers die from the condition. One of the most severe symptoms is scarring all over the body. Victims can also develop conjunctivitis – leading to blindness in some cases – and mouth infections.
Samantha is a student at Bicester Community College, where she achieved a Health and Social Care BTEC level two certificate this year.
Headteacher Cynthia Bartlett said: “We are very sorry to hear of Sam’s illness. Sam is a good student who is keen to contribute to the community and we are all thinking of her at this difficult time.”
NHS Oxfordshire spokes-woman Ruth Atkins urged people not to worry about Tamiflu.She said: “We cannot comment on individual cases. However, we would like to reassure people that serious reactions to Tamiflu are extremely rare and it should still be taken as soon as possible, especially for very serious swine flu cases.”
Samantha’s case comes as the effectiveness of Tamiflu was being questioned amid disarray over plans to inoculate three million children against the bug.
Research published in the British Medical Journal found the antiviral could cut symptoms by about a day, but said there was no clear evidence that it prevented complications like pneumonia.

http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5hCIlEQZJ-PI4LMWChBeCSeSQovVgD9CHAFI02 Soldiers get mass swine flu shots before holidays
By SUSANNE M. SCHAFER (AP) – 2 hours ago
FORT JACKSON, S.C. — Thousands of Army recruits in training must line up at least once more before heading home for the holidays, this time for mass inoculations by the hundreds against swine flu.
The Army's largest training camp, just outside Columbia, S.C., and other posts are hurrying to finish the shots before the year-end break. More than 40,000 soldiers in advanced and basic training across the country head home over the next two weeks in a massive troop movement known as "block leave," Army officials said.
"We have been very aggressive in trying to assure the safety of our soldiers," said Maj. Soo Hee Kim-Delio, the Army physician in charge of the inoculations at Fort Jackson. "Our basic training population is at particularly high risk."
Swine flu, also known as 2009 H1N1, has proved to be similar to seasonal flu but a bigger threat to children and young adults. Many of the trainees are in their late teens and early 20s.
The soldiers are also vulnerable because of the physical stress of basic training and from living at close quarters with hundreds of other recruits, Kim-Delio said. When they return home, they may rub shoulders with a host of relatives or be around children fresh from exposure at school.
Fort Jackson recorded the Army's first death from complications of swine flu when Spc. Christopher Hogg of Deltona, Fla., died Sept. 10 from pneumonia due to H1N1 influenza, authorities said.
Fort Jackson started the shots about two weeks ago and expects to vaccinate as many as 9,000 soldiers by the end of this week and another 2,000 by the middle of next week. The trainers who remain on post, the Army's medical work force, family members, pregnant women and those with certain medical conditions such as asthma also will get the shots for a total of about 15,000 doses, Kim-Delio said.
Overall, the Department of Defense purchased 2.7 million doses of the H1N1 vaccine, which it is trying to deliver to soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines around the globe before the end of the year, department spokesman Col. Wayne Hachey said.
At Fort Knox, Ky., home of the Army's Armor School, about 13,000 soldiers have been vaccinated for the swine flu, but the post won't get another shipment of doses until January. Capt. Franklin Hogue, who is in charge of the flu program there, said they have vaccinated approximately 70 percent of their troops.
At the Army's sprawling Fort Campbell, on the Kentucky-Tennessee line, over 7,000 soldiers have been vaccinated, according to Laura Boyd, a spokeswoman for Blanchfield Army Community Hospital. Another 5,000 doses have been given to families, retirees, schoolchildren and others in the community.
Flu shots are mandatory for all active duty men and women unless they have a medical condition such as an egg allergy, officials said.
"It's just one more shot in a long list of shots," Staff Sgt. David Gavula said after rolling up his sleeve for a swine flu shot at this post's vaccination clinic.
Gavula, of North Kingstown, R.I., also got a seasonal flu shot several months ago. But if left to his own devices, "I probably wouldn't bother to do it," the 26-year-old infantry soldier said with a shrug

The World Health Organization (WHO) today confirmed Vietnam's latest human case of H5N1 avian influenza, a fatal illness that was reported by Vietnamese media Dec 1. The victim was a 23-year-old man who lived in Dien Bien Phu; he fell ill Nov 18 and died 10 days later. His case increased Vietnam's H5N1 count to 112 cases with 57 deaths. Earlier reports said the man had eaten duck blood pudding before he got sick, but the WHO said the source of his exposure is still under investigation.

http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/swineflu/news/dec1109vaccine.html New vaccine technologies on horizon but face roadblocks
Maryn McKenna Contributing Writer
Dec 11, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – New ways of producing influenza vaccine that would free the process from long-standing problems are on the horizon, federal officials said today, but they added that scientific and regulatory hurdles will slow the products' movement past licensure and into the market.
Speaking at an educational seminar held on the campus of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and broadcast online, senior members of federal heath agencies acknowledged that production of both seasonal and pandemic H1N1 influenza vaccines has been hobbled by outdated egg-based technology.
"It will be several more years before we are able to wean ourselves away from egg-based vaccine, but we are committed to moving ahead with 21st century vaccine development," Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in a taped opening statement.
Federal investments made since 2005 should improve that picture, the officials said, but they cautioned that the timeline for developing new methods of producing vaccines can stretch to 15 years before licensing begins.
Some research has moved through clinical trials and is expected to come before the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for licensure in 2010, said Robin Robinson, PhD, director of HHS's Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA). That category includes work by two manufacturers who have developed cell-culture processes that are an alternative to egg-based manufacturing, and by several others that have developed adjuvants intended to provoke an adequate immune response with a smaller amount of flu antigen.
But most of the truly new vaccine technologies remain in the realm of basic science or in preclinical testing, said Carole Heilman, PhD, director of the division of microbiology and infectious diseases at NIH's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Those include recombinant subunit formulas produced in insect-cell culture; vaccines using virus-like particles; DNA-based vaccines; and formulas using synthetic peptides. "We are at the beginning with a lot of these," she said.
One recombinant subunit formula, Protein Sciences Corp.'s FluBlok, has completed phase 3 trials and has been submitted to the FDA in a biologics license application. Novavax has completed a phase 2 trial in Mexico of a vaccine containing virus-like particles and has enrolled 467 participants in a phase 2a trial in the United States.
(Separately today, NIAID announced that it has completed enrollment of 20 participants in a phase 1 safety trial for a DNA vaccine for pandemic H1N1 flu, developed at NIH's Vaccine Research Center.)
New technologies will also require a revamp in the regulatory framework for approving them, said Dr. Jesse Goodman, the FDA's chief scientist and acting deputy commissioner for science and public health.
Some of the technologies now being considered for flu vaccine manufacture, such as cell-culture and virus-like particles, are already used to produce vaccines against other diseases and have received regulatory approval in the United States. But others rely not only on new manufacturing methods but also on different ways of provoking immunity to the flu virus, compared with the current vaccine. Traditional regulatory tests for flu vaccine include measuring immune response using agreed-upon correlates of immunity—but since some of the new vaccines would not provoke an immune response in the same manner, they would not pass evaluations conducted by current standards.
Alternate proofs of efficacy may require large clinical studies conducted during flu season, Goodman said: "A whole new science is going to need to develop around these vaccines that tells us what is protective."

Updated Email from Solvenia - Flu Like Symptoms Now Showing Up 12/15/09 8:02am
Updated Email from Solvenia - Flu Like Symptoms Now Showing Up

Some people have emailed me asking exactly where the person is that has reported the White Grit rain, as they live in the area.

I asked the person in an email where they live, they have reported back. They have also reported, people are starting to have flu like symptoms.

I am simply reporting on this, I have asked if it is possible to get more of an up close picture. The person has said the grit is still there.

Email from this morning from Solvenia


Hi Scherrie!

I live in nordeast Slovenia, the landscapes name is Prekmurje. From us is the border to Austria about 55km far.
The white drops are still on the roads, yesterday it was snowing all day long, but they dont get down. After this white rain - on Dec.12.2009 we had strong feeling of burn in the throat and this for a long time.
Sorry, my english is not very good, I speak german very good. We often read on your site, there are many good informations and so we now the news what is happening.
From about 3 weeks ago we also see very low flying airplanes and about 3-4 days after this, many, many people get sick - the symptomps like by flu!!

Kind regards from Slovenia!

Group Demonstrated to Get People Aware to Not Take Swine Flu Vaccine 12/14/09 6:07pm
Group Demonstrated to Get People Aware to Not Take Swine Flu Vaccine

I love this kind of information!

People getting involved to try to inform and help others and raise their voices for what they feel is right!

Article:

DEMONSTRATORS marched through Edinburgh yesterday to protest against the swine flu vaccination programme.
The group believes the H1N1 epidemic is not as serious as claimed and have concerns about the safety and usefulness of the vaccine.

About 80 people marched along the Royal Mile from St Giles' Cathedral to the Parliament.

Organiser Claire Knox said they hoped the protest would encourage people to think twice about getting the vaccine.

She believes figures for the numbers of people suffering swine flu are not accurate and questioned the necessity for vaccination.

She said: "We're not sure there is a pandemic as it seems the numbers are exaggerated. It appears swine flu is very mild and there are very few cases and I would like to know why they are trying to enforce this vaccination campaign on us.

"The vaccine has not gone through full length testing so there are safety concerns. We just want to highlight the discrepancies and manipulation of numbers so people question whether they need the vaccine."
