Tamiflu & Relenza: Almost Totally Ineffective
Highlights: - The latest updated Cochrane Review: Neuraminidase inhibitors for preventing and treating influenza in healthy adults and children, is based on full internal reports of 20 Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and 26 Relenza (zanamivir) trials. These trials involved more than 24,000 people and the findings challenge the historical assumption that neuraminidase inhibitors are effective in combating influenza. The evidence also suggests there are insufficient grounds to support the use of Tamiflu in preventing person-to-person spread of influenza. This raises further questions about the most effective way to support drug regulation and public health policy decision-making. Claims about the effectiveness of Tamiflu against complications were a key factor in decisions made by governments around the world to stockpile these drugs in case of a pandemic. The US has spent more than $1.3 billion buying a strategic reserve of antivirals, while in the UK the government has spent almost £424 million for a stockpile of about 40 million doses*. - Compared with a placebo, taking Tamiflu led to a quicker alleviation of influenza-like symptoms of just half a day (from 7 days to 6.3 days) in adults, but the effect in children was more uncertain. There was no evidence of a reduction in hospitalisations or serious influenza complications; confirmed pneumonia, bronchitis, sinusitis or ear infection in either adults or children. Tamiflu also increased the risk of nausea and vomiting in adults by around 4 percent and in children by 5 percent. There was a reported increased risk of psychiatric events of around 1 percent when Tamiflu was used to prevent influenza. Evidence also suggests that Tamiflu prevented some people from producing sufficient numbers of their own antibodies to fight infection. * April 2014 Cochrane Review - http://healthresearchreport.me/2014/04/11/tamiflu-relenza-almost-totally-ineffective-yet-deadly-side-effects-out-of-46-trials-of-24000-people/

Mechanism of Resistance to Oseltamivir
The neuraminidase active site changes shape to create a pocket for oseltamivir, whereas it accommodates zanamivir without such a change. Any of several mutations may prevent the binding of oseltamivir by preventing the formation of this pocket; the oseltamivir-resistant virus can nonetheless bind to the host-cell sialic acid receptor and to zanamivir. The pocket for oseltamivir is created by the rotation of E276 and bonding of the amino acid to R224 — events that are prevented by the mutations R292K, N294S, and H274Y and therefore result in resistance to oseltamivir. An E119V mutation may permit the binding of a water molecule in the space created by the smaller valine, also interfering with oseltamivir binding. None of these mutations prevent the binding of zanamivir or of the natural sialic acid substrate.

WHO Sends Tamiflu Vaccines
The World Health Organisation is to start sending 2.4 million treatment courses of Tamiflu, an antiviral proven effective against the new flu, to 72 countries. They continue to watch for human to human transmission before they declare a pandemic. These Belgian students are part of an international exchange programme to Mexico. They've been sent home early because of the Influenza A virus. But none of them is showing any sign of H1N1 - the so-called swine flu which has killed 25 people in Mexico and one in the U.S. Mexico's national disease alert centre now thinks the virus may not be as deadly as first thought. But the World Health Organisation is taking no chances. It's sending 2.4 million courses of Tamiflu - an antiviral shown to be effective against the flu - to 72 countries including Mexico. [Fadela Chaib, WHO spokesperson]: "This is from the stock that has been donated by Roche since 2005-2006. Part of the stock will be dispatched today." Roche has said it is increasing production of the drug to meet rising demand. And GlaxoSmithKline, which makes inhaleable flu drug Relenza, is doing the same. The WHO is now keeping an especially close eye on outbreaks outside North America for signs of the virus spreading from human to human, as it tries to decide whether to declare a pandemic.

Natural Flu Treatment - How To Treat The Flu Without Drugs
http://www.naturalfoodsdiet.org/natural-flu-treatment-how-to-treat-the-flu-without-drugs/ "Natural Flu Treatment. How To Treat The Flu Without Drugs." Learn how to treat the flu without drugs in this natural flu treatment video with Dr. Richard Gerhauser. Let me ask you "What does mainstream medicine have to offer you to prevent or treat influenza". After you get the flu there are the FDA approved drugs like Tamiflu and Relenza which are expensive medications with a broad array of side effects. The other option is to get a flu shot, which has its own risks of side effects and possible ineffectiveness and is also relatively expensive. It appears as though greed rules. Even mainstream medicine is beginning to doubt the modern, expensive, biased treatments and preventative measures. On October 29, 2012 the editor of the British Medical Journal, Dr. Godley, published a letter that questioned the effectiveness and potential serious side effects of Tamiflu. It had been noted that the ten clinical trials that were performed on this drug that led to its approval, had been questioned. There was evidence that researchers may have been overstating the effectiveness and underreporting serious side effects. Roche, the maker of the drug, was asked to supply the data from the clinical trials. According to Godley and Cochrane, Roche withheld the critical data needed to make a determination.

Tamiflu  Hazards Outweigh The Benefits Official
Glad to see that some "well intentioned" Doctors are standing up for us ... let's hope they're as diligent when it comes to "compulsory immunisation" in the autumn !! Helen Macdonald ( editorial registrar, BMJ ) on side effects, Tamiflu, and the swine flu hotline A hundred and five thousand people with flu symptoms were prescribed Tamiflu via the new hotline last week. But there are some unintended consequences. Although consultation rates for flu like symptoms are levelling, Pulse magazine ..... ( http://www.pulsetoday.co.uk/story.asp?sectioncode=35&storycode=4123358&c=1 ) ... reports on a new problem. Now patients are making appointments to see their GP complaining of the side effects of Tamiflu. Dr Nigel Watson, chief executive of Wessex LMCs and a GP in New Milton, Hampshire told Pulse: On balance, the swine flu line has taken a lot of the queries off, but there are people presenting with the side effects. Its NOT INNOCUOUS Drug that the general public seem to Think it is. There may be problems with misdiagnosis too via the hotline. In the same article another GP, Dr Mark Aley, reported seeing three patients in one day who had taken Tamiflu, although it was clear to him another diagnosis was behind their symptoms such as tonsillitis. There are loads of people being misdiagnosed because of all the hype, he said. The side effects of antivirals have hit the headlines of the national press. Some newspapers report the findings of a cross-sectional survey study about the side effects of Oseltamivir in three London schools, published in Eurosurveillance. ( http://www.eurosurveillance.org/ ) 103 respondents (40% response rate) took prophylactic medication in April or May. 53% experienced one or more side effect, 40% had gastrointestinal side effects, and 18% had mild neuropsychiatric effects, such as nightmares. 48% finished the course. These results broadly reflect other evidence emerging. Speaking to ... The Times http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/health/Swine_flu/article6734056.ece ) ... about the findings, Peter Holden, the British Medical Associations lead on swine flu, suggested that antivirals were being overused. He said: The National Pandemic Flu Service has been a great success, and was needed to take the pressure off GPs, but the threshold for getting Tamiflu should be quite high. For patients who are not in the high-risk groups this virus typically causes mild symptoms and does not require a course of Tamiflu. Patients in the at-risk groups should be referred to their GP, who will use their clinical judgment. The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency ... (MHRA) ( http://www.mhra.gov.uk/index.htm ) ... told Pulse magazine that it will continue to monitor the safety of Tamiflu and Relenza as their use increases. Helen Macdonald is editorial registrar, BMJ The following from "The British Medical Journal" (BMJ) http://www.bmj.com/cgi/content/extract/334/7606/1232 Tamiflu and Neuropsychiatric Disturbance in Adolescents In March 2007 the Japanese authorities advised against prescribing oseltamivir (Tamiflu, Roche) to adolescents aged 10-19 years.1 This unusually severe measure resulted from the separate suicides of two 14 year olds who jumped to their deaths while taking oseltamivir; 52 other deaths (14 in children or adolescents) have been associated with the same drug. So far, similar action has not followed in Europe. When a regulatory authority warns doctors not to prescribe a drug but decides not to retract its marketing authorisation prescribers and patients are entitled to be concerned and a little confused.

Advice for pregnant women about swine flu
(22 Oct 2009) LEAD IN: Governments around the world are rushing out stocks of swine flu vaccines, hoping to stop the virus from taking hold. In the UK, where two pregnant women have died from swine flu this month, expectant mothers are among the first to be offered the newly developed vaccines, along with health workers. But how safe is the vaccine? STORY-LINE New born Oscar Schipper is just days old (born 9th October 2009) and he might have been born with an inbuilt immunity against swine flu. But he wasn't. That's because although his mother Amelia Schipper was diagnosed with swine flu about half way through her pregnancy, she didn't actually have it. She and her husband were among many who were told to stay quarantined for fourteen days. After tests and an agonising two week wait, Schipper discovered she had a different virus. At the time she was relieved. She says "it was very scary because of the fact that they (doctors) didn't have an awful lot on it at the time and as you can imagine being pregnant it just added to that anxiety". But now Schipper realises that because she didn't have the right virus, neither she, or new born Oscar, have any protection from Swine flu. Schipper believes women can't help but worry about the effect of antiviral drugs and she says her own experience has led her to wonder how many people are getting medicated for swine flu, regardless of whether they have it. She was prescribed the drug Relenza, which does not pass into the bloodstream because it's inhaled. It's prescribed to pregnant women because it reaches the throat and lungs and does not, doctors believe, reach significant levels in the placenta. In Britain it's the first option to Tamiflu, another antiviral drug which is taken in tablet form and acts throughout the body. Amelia Schipper realises in hindsight that it shouldn't have been prescribed Relenza, because she's an asthmatic and it put her at risk of an attack. Luckly she wasn't adversely affected by the Relenza, which is also prohibited for use by people suffering chronic obstructive pulmonary disease But neither Relenza, nor Tamiflu, would give her, and her baby immunity against the virus. Schipper and her husband Michael are now determined to ensure they take every step to prevent their children being infected. The UK's national vaccine programme was finally launched at the University College Hospital (UCH) on Wednesday ( 21 October), amid a great fanfare. Key health workers like doctors and nurses were the first to get their jabs and had to do so under the gaze of government ministers, officials and the flashes of waiting camera crews. Patrick O'Brien is the UCH's consultant obstetrician as well as being a spokesman for Britain's Royal College of Obsteticians and Gynaecologists. He's keen for his patients and for pregnant women in general to ensure they get vaccinated. He says if a woman has antibodies against swine flu, these will cross the placenta into her baby so it has a degree of protection against swine flu when it's born. That immunity will obviously continue to be transferred to the baby through breast milk. O'Brien is mindful of the Schippers' experience. He says although many pregnant women think they've had swine flu and have received anti virals like Tamiflu and Relenza, only around 10 or 15% have "genuinely" had it. He urges "If you think you've had swine flu, if you haven't had the test to prove it, we would still advise that you have the vaccination when it becomes available." The UK Department of Health hopes to vaccinate more than eleven million of the most vulnerable people over the coming weeks. Australia, France, China and the US have already begun their swine flu vaccination campaigns.

Does Tamiflu Work?
The World Health Organization and the CDC class Tamiflu as an essential drug and many countries have stockpiled the drug at great expense. However, in a recent article in the Public Library of Science, this premise is being challenged. Roche Pharmaceuticals has refused to release the scientific research related to this question. The public is paying for stock piling but has no data proving that Tamiflu prevents pneumonia or saves lives. The data we do have shows that Tamiflu shortens the course of the illness by 1/2 - 1 day. The drug company provided no convincing reasons for withholding the research data. Donald Rumsfeld and some of his friends own stock in Tamiflu...they have been instrumental for its tremendous sales. There are also a myriad of side effects that include symptoms like the flu that include nausea, vomition, diarrhea, anaphylaxis, hemorrhagic colitis, neurological problems, hallucinations, and suicides.

Tamiflu's Effectiveness Questioned in New Study
Tamiflu's Effectiveness Questioned in New Study. The antiviral solution Tamiflu may not be any more compelling than different strategies for treating flu, or influenza infections, as indicated by another investigation distributed in the diary BMJ. More from Time.com: There isn't solid confirmation to help amassing the items in national crisis tranquilize terminals in the event of a pandemic, the scientists say. The two medications—Tamiflu is the brand name for oseltamivir and Relenza is the brand name zanamivir—are intended to prevent the flu infection from spreading in a tainted individual, and claim to decrease the seriousness of influenza side effects and to what extent individuals are wiped out. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention keeps the medications in its store for use in both occasional and pandemic influenza circumstances, and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the World Health Organization likewise prescribe the drugs for treating influenza. The creators of the present audit found, be that as it may, that on account of the European endorsements specifically, administrative offices depended on outlines of concentrates instead of a thorough examination of crude information, known as clinical investigation reports, which can raced to more than 1,000 pages and detail strategies, conventions and factual investigations. Following a four-year push to acquire this information from both the producers and the EMA, the creators report in the diary BMJ that those trials don't bolster guarantees that the medications bring down the danger of entanglements from influenza, for example, pneumonia, or that the advantages of the medications exceed their dangers, which incorporate queasiness, regurgitating, migraines and kidney issue. The creators point to not only one disappointment during the time spent supporting these drugs, yet a feeble administrative framework in which the examinations are altogether directed by makers, and in which the trials thought about the prescriptions against fake treatment instead of to existing influenza medicines.
