Terrifying new strain of bird flu N7N9 Tamiflu resistant, fears of new global pandemic
“Without additional mutations, the virus transmitted and killed ferrets,” says Kawaoka, noting that further alterations to the virus may not be necessary to make it a potential public health threat, though human-to-human transmission has thus far remained limited. The team also confirmed the drug-resistant H7N9 did not respond to oseltamivir, the active agent in Tamiflu. It did respond to another drug called a protease inhibitor, but Kawaoka says it is a drug currently approved only in Japan and only for use in pandemic situations. “I don’t want to cause alarm,” Kawaoka says, but “it’s only a matter of time before the resistant virus acquires a mutation that allows it to grow well, (rendering it) more likely to be lethal at the same time it is resistant.” http://marygreeley.com/?p=70820 Mystery ailment leads US to evacuate more from China http://marygreeley.com/?p=70820 Patreon https://www.patreon.com/user?u=3969921 PayPal paypal.me/Marygreeley https://www.paypal.com/pools/c/7ZFN5i3TVd https://www.paypal.com/donate/?token=IhqBlUUP7tdIytQZT92rsRS9cbqiK2Y-8Aa9-d1zJlaZDRb7ioZJLrY_On7fChawt2nRrG&country.x=US&locale.x=US

H1N1 (SWINE) FLU ALERT!! -  Fears early drug use could cause flu resistance!!!!
From BBC - Video: "As the government moves to increase its stockpiles of Tamiflu to combat a potential flu pandemic, Susan Watts reports on anxieties that early and incorrect use of the drug could lead to resistant viruses." From me --- This FIRST wave of the H1N1 virus is not as lethal as was first expected, BUT, this is only the first wave. As with ALL flu strains, once the strain gets moving from human to human, it mutates with each new host it grows in. Many are beginning to think that we are safe; that we can catch it and get the Tamiflu to get rid of it... or take the Tamiflu early to prevent getting it, with no consequenses. THIS IS SOOOO WRONG!!! If we abuse the use of the antiviral medications, we will create a resistance to the meds within the virus itself! All it will take is for one person who HAS taken Tamiflu or Relenza "without" actually having the flu, to still catch it; although the flu virus will be weakened by the anitviral med, and will not affect that person badly, the virus will mutate and become resistant to the medication. Because this flu is a human variation, it will pass to the next unsuspecting person with the resistance factor within the virus itself, and that person will pass it on, etc., etc... We will then have a much stronger, mutated form of this flu spreading that Tamiflu and Relenza will have no effect on. We must NOT try to take this medication if we do NOT have the flu! We just have to be as careful as we possibly can about being sanitary by following all the guidelines about cleanliness of hands. - Carry a small bottle of gel hand sanitizer with us, and USE IT!.. - Every time we have to touch a doorknob, handle, wall, shopping cart; anything someone else may have touched before us, USE IT!.. When I have to go out, I wash my hands with the sanitizer after touching anything public. When I get back home, I wash my hands again before I touch my own doorknobs to enter my home. If someone comes to my home, I wash my doorknobs and anything they may have touched with their hands - after they leave so I am not offending anyone. I am not paraniod, or freaked out over this, but damn! I am not playing either! This flu is not to played with! I am one of those who have a pre-existing condition that ANY strain of flu activates. I also have 2 very close neighbors that are quite old, and one who's health is feeble, so I have to be careful that I am not bringing any viruses near them. We HAVE to not only think of our own selves when using our gel sanitizer; we have to think about our neighbors, room-mates, and family. Just because we may not have a case of this flu in our own town doesn't mean it's not brewing and being spread in our town by those passing through. REMEMBER... The only reason we, outside of Mexico, do not have the same, high death rate from this flu is because our victims have been given the antiviral medications in time. THIS FLU IS KILLING PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT HAD THE THE ANTIVIRAL MEDICATIONS ADMINISTERED IN TIME!

Swine Flu - A9 H1N1 - Why it is Mild
This video explains WHY the risk posed by "Swine Flu" (A9 H1N1) is being classified as "mild" Please Rate, Favorite and Share. "Swine Flu" (A9 H1N1) is a hybrid of the following influenza strains: * North American Swine (Pig) * North American Avian (Bird) * European/Asian Swine (Pig) * Human Influenza The new virus 'attacks' the upper respiratory tract (your throat) which makes it much less dangerous than it would be if it entered the lungs. A gene named NS1 is also described as 'normal' which means that the virus is unlikely to result in serious pneumonia.

IVW: 'High Risk' of Resistant Swine Flu, Researcher Says
http://www.medpagetoday.com CANNES, France, April 29 -- Using single antiviral drugs to treat the current outbreak of swine influenza could result in the development of a resistant strain, a leading flu researcher said here. The H1N1 virus currently infecting humans around the globe is already resistant to one of the two classes of antiviral medications, the adamantanes (rimantadine and amantadine). The virus is, however, susceptible to the neuraminadase inhibitors, oseltamivir (Tamiflu) and zanamivir (Relenza).

WHO: Anti-Flu Drug Move
The World Health Organisation said 236 cases of swine flu had been confirmed world-wide by 1500GMT on Thursday. The vast majority are in Mexico. That figure is constantly changing as the results of laboratory tests come through. World Health Organization flu expert, Keiji Fukuda says millions of doses of anti-viral drugs are being handed out to countries most in need. [Dr. Keiji Fukuda, WHO Flu Expert]: "The WHO has begun immediately distributing these drugs to developing countries which are determined by WHO to be most in need of this kind of assistance and so the work of getting this out is now underway. In addition there will be a portion of this stockpile which will be sent to Mexico to provide assistance to that country." There is no vaccine yet for the new H1N1 strain of swine flu but the WHO says it does respond well to existing anti-flu medication. Roche, makers of the anti-viral drug Tamiflu, has stepped up production to cope with the huge increase in demand. But the WHO insists such medication should only be used by people who feel ill — not as a way of trying to avoid infection. The organization has raised its pandemic alert level to five suggesting the world is teetering on the brink. It said on Thursday there was no reason to go the maximum alert phase 6 — at least not yet.

Expert Doctor Won't Vaccinate His Own Children - Vaccine Is More Deadly Than Swine Flu Itself!
FINAL WARNING -- DO NOT VACCINATE YOUR CHILDREN -- Dr Kent Holtorf, an Infectious Disease Expert saying that he wouldn't even consider having his family take the vaccine! A warning that the swine flu vaccine has been linked to a deadly nerve disease has been sent by the UK Government to senior neurologists in a confidential letter. The letter from the Health Protection Agency, the official body that oversees public health, was leaked to The Daily Mail, leading to demands to know why the information has not been given to the public before the vaccination of millions of people, including children, begins. It tells the neurologists that they must be alert for an increase in a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the vaccine. GBS attacks the lining of the nerves, causing paralysis and inability to breathe, and can be fatal. The letter refers to the use of a similar swine flu vaccine in the United States in 1976 when: * More people died from the vaccination than from swine flu * The vaccine may have increased the risk of contracting GBS by eight times * The vaccine was withdrawn after just ten weeks when the link with GBS became clear * The U.S. Government was forced to pay out millions of dollars to those affected Concerns have already been raised that the new vaccine has not been sufficiently tested and that the effects, especially on children, are unknown. This year it is more important that you protect your children and loved ones from the flu vaccines than influenza itself. This article on Lew Rockwell discusses how: 1. The swine flu is simply another flu. It is not unusually deadly. 2. This is the first time both seasonal and pandemic flu vaccines will be administered. Both seasonal flu and swine flu vaccines will require two inoculations. This is because single inoculations have failed to produce sufficient antibodies. This is an admission that prior flu vaccines were virtually useless. Can you trust them this time? 3. Adjuvants are added to vaccines to boost production of antibodies but may trigger autoimmune reactions. Some adjuvants are mercury (thimerosal), aluminum and squalene. Why would you sign a consent form for your children to be injected with mercury, which is even more brain-toxic than lead? 4. This is the first year mock vaccines have been used to gain FDA approval. The vaccines that have been tested are not the same vaccines your children will be given. 5. Over-vaccination is a common practice now in America. American children are subjected to 29 vaccines by the age of two. Meanwhile, veterinarians have backed off of repeat vaccination in dogs because of observed side effects. 6. Modern medicine has no explanation for autism, despite its continued rise in prevalence. Yet autism is not reported among Amish children who go unvaccinated. 7. Researchers are warning that over-use of the flu vaccine and anti-flu drugs like Tamiflu and Relenza can apply genetic pressure on flu viruses and then they are more likely to mutate into a more deadly strain. 8. Most seasonal influenza A (H1N1) virus strains tested from the United States and other countries are now resistant to Tamiflu (oseltamivir). Tamiflu has become a nearly worthless drug against seasonal flu. 9. Public health officials are irresponsible in their omission of any ways to strengthen immunity against the flu. No options outside of problematic vaccines and anti-flu drugs are offered, despite the fact there is strong evidence that vitamins C and D activate the immune system and the trace mineral selenium prevents the worst form of the disease.

Mexico Flu outbreak kills dozens - pig bird flu
SUBSCRIBE!!!!!!! When these things happen DON'T PANIC!! GOOGLE NATURAL CURES EVERY DESEASE AND VIRUS ARE CURABLE http://reuters.com/article/topNews/id... WHAT KIND OF FLU IS IT AND HOW IS IT SPREADING? The virus is an influenza A virus, carrying the designation H1N1 and is spreading from person to person. It contains DNA from avian, swine and human viruses, including elements from European and Asian swine viruses, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC. "The WHO has said that it's prepared, with rapid containment measures, including Anti-retro-v, anti-re, ...anti virals, that it needed to combat the swine flu outbreaks in Mexico and the US..." A retrovirus is a virus that travels and tries to enter host cells with an RNA genome. A retrovirus mutates very often. This enables the virus to grow resistant to antiviral pharmaceuticals quickly, and impedes the development of effective vaccines and inhibitors. http://www.goerie.com/apps/pbcs.dll/a... There is no vaccine that specifically protects against swine flu, and it was unclear how much protection current human flu vaccines might offer. A "seed stock" genetically matched to the new swine flu virus has been created by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, said Dr. Richard Besser, the agency's acting director. If the government decides vaccine production is necessary, manufacturers would need that stock to get started. http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/200... Virus samples have been sent to laboratories in Canada for testing, they said. The World Health Organization, which has identified swine influenza as a potential source of a human flu pandemic, has also activated its global epidemic operations center. CDC says too late to contain U.S. flu outbreak http://www.reuters.com/article/latest... April 24 (Reuters) - The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday it was too late to contain the swine flu outbreak in the United States. CDC acting director Dr. Richard Besser told reporters in a telephone briefing it was likely too late to try to contain the outbreak, by vaccinating, treating or isolating people. CDC: Swine flu viruses in U.S. and Mexico match http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/04/24/... Of the 14 Mexican samples tested by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, seven were identical to the swine flu virus found in Texas and Southern California, Besser said at a news conference. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8... Dozens of people have died and hundreds of others have been infected in a viral outbreak in Mexico suspected to have been caused by a strain of swine flu. The World Health Organization thinks the virus may be behind 60 deaths in Mexico since mid-March. Mexican authorities have closed schools in affected areas and a vaccination campaign is being launched. Seven non-fatal cases of a new form of swine flu have also been confirmed in the southern United States. A WHO spokesman said 12 out of 18 samples taken from the Mexican victims showed they died from a virus with the same genetic structure as the one found in the US. The WHO would convene an emergency meeting in the "very near future" to determine whether the event constituted a "public health event of international concern", Gregory Hartl told Reuters news agency. WHO spokeswoman Fadela Chaib said "unusual end-of-season influenza activity" was noticed in Mexico starting from the end of March. Fifty-seven people had died in Mexico City from flu-like symptoms, she said, and another three in San Luis Potosi in central Mexico. There are around 800 suspected cases, she said. All schools and universities in the capital and in nearby Mexico State have been closed, the BBC's Stephen Gibbs reports from Mexico City. 'No contact' In the US, experts say the seven people who fell ill across two states were suffering from a new form of swine flu that combined pig, bird and human viruses. The CDC said none of the seven victims had been in contact with pigs, which is how people usually catch swine flu. CDC spokeswoman Anne Schuchat said that officials did not yet know how widely the virus had spread. While the world has been worried over the past few years about the impact of a pandemic originating from avian flu, the WHO say that swine flu has been implicated in the emergence of two of the last century's influenza pandemics, reports BBC science reporter Matt McGrath.

Type B Influenza Growing Resistant to Drugs
CHICAGO — A less common strain of flu has shown hints of resistance to two flu drugs among patients in a small study in Japan, a country known for prescribing the drugs more frequently than anywhere else in the world. Signs of resistance to the drugs Tamiflu and Relenza turned up among a few patients who had type B influenza, normally a milder flu causing smaller outbreaks than the more common type A. The findings were troubling to researchers because they suggested doctors will eventually need new medications to treat drug-resistant flu if the viruses become more prevalent. Previous studies, including work by the same researchers, have found a few cases of resistance to Tamiflu in type A flu, the variety thought most likely to cause a pandemic if bird flu changes into a form that is more easily spread among people, not just poultry. Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious-disease specialist at Vanderbilt University who was not involved in the study, said Japanese doctors prescribe anti-flu drugs frequently, perhaps too often, giving viruses a chance to evolve. "We were afraid this might happen and, sure enough, it has," Schaffner said. The study underlines the importance of vaccination and other preventive measures, he said. Some scientists believe Tamiflu and Relenza, which were designed to treat seasonal flu, may also be helpful in treating a global epidemic, although that is not clear. The U.S. government's preparation for a flu pandemic includes stockpiling Tamiflu and Relenza, and funding development of new anti-flu drugs, said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Anytime doctors treat widely with an anti-viral drug, "you are going to have, sooner or later, the evolution of resistance," Fauci said. "It's critical to have a pipeline of drugs you can have available when that resistance develops." In the new study, appearing in Wednesday's Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers collected virus samples from patients at four community hospitals in Japan. In one part of the study, they took samples from 74 children before and after they were treated with Tamiflu. They found drug-resistant virus in one of the children after treatment, indicating the resistance had emerged during treatment. They also collected samples from 422 untreated children and adults with flu and found drug-resistant virus in seven of those patients. The rate of resistance to this family of drugs, less than 2 percent, was lower than had been found previously in type A influenza. Rates of drug-resistant type A virus have been reported as high as 18 percent. "If drug-resistant influenza B viruses become more prevalent, we will need new drugs to treat infected patients," said study co-author Yoshihiro Kawaoka, a virology professor at the University of Tokyo and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The new study received financial support from the Japanese and U.S. governments. Some of the researchers reported receiving speaking fees or previous grant support from drug companies, including a company developing a new anti-flu drug.

Fighting flu
This video illustrates how the flu virus works. In order to spread in the body, the flu virus first uses a protein, called hemagglutinin, to bind to the healthy cell's receptors. Once it has inserted its RNA and replicated, the virus uses an enzyme, called neuraminidase, to sever the connection and move on to the next healthy cell. Current flu drugs stop the virus from moving on to the next cell by preventing neuraminidase from cutting its ties with the infected cell, thus binding it to the infected cell and allowing the immune system to clear it away. A new class of flu drug developed at UBC latches onto the neuraminidase like a broken key, stuck in a lock, rendering it useless and has been shown to be effective against drug resistant strains of the flu virus.

Demand Self Shielding Against Swine Flu HERE
Despite its recent admissions that laboratory tests do not accurately identify Swine Flu (AH1N1), most cases identified as "Swine Flu" have not been labeled by lab tests, - most people infected (or suspected of infection) with Swine Flu recover without any medical intervention or the need for any treatment other than fluids and bed rest - that the virus is so low in disease-causing potential that vaccine manufacture is very slow, leading to WHO declaring it will re-engineer the virus, fueling belief that WHO engineered the novel Swine Flu virus, - New cases will no longer be counted, - all respiratory cases are being counted as Swine Flu, thus inflating case number to absurdly high levels, - drug resistant strains of the Swine Flu are emerging, WHO and CDC continue to insist that a grave public health danger exists. These organizations are forging ahead with guidance and plans for mass vaccination, in some countries, through mandatory programs. FDA states that it intends to approve the Swine Flu vaccine before safety testing can be completed and the UK says that it will accomplish this feat in a mere 5 days after the vaccine is received although WHO cautions against such hasty approval. Americans, in record numbers, reject the notion that an untested, uninsurable, unsafe vaccine should be injected into their bodies and those of their children in a rush to "prevent" an inconsequential disease. They understand that if the Swine Flu did mutate as threatened by WHO and CDC into a deadlier form, the Swine Flu vaccine in production now would be powerless to prevent it since once a virus undergoes significant mutation, any vaccine prepared for the previous version is totally ineffective against the new version. They would rather stay home and stay alive. And the Natural Solutions Foundation's Self Shielding initiative is helping them to do just that! weaponized vaccine ( http://weaponizedvaccine.399512.free-press-release.com/) pandemic flu (http://pandemicflu.211404.free-press-release.com/) self-shield ( http://self-shield.437585.free-press-release.com/) LONDON, Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- British drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline has started testing an A/H1N1 vaccine on humans, local media reported Saturday. The British government is preparing for a mass vaccination of citizens by October after ordering 132 million doses of the drug. The latest figures showed that the number of new flu cases per week has dropped from 110,000 to 25,000, but the proportion of healthy people dying from the virus is still higher than that of the regular flu. In addition, there are concerns that the anti-virus drug Tamiflu could lose its effectiveness against future strains of the A/H1N1 virus. Many children taking Tamiflu, too, have suffered such side effects as nausea, insomnia and nightmares. GSK spokesperson Alex Harrison said there would be "normal side effects" with the vaccine. The World Health Organization, however, expressed concern over Britain's decision to fast-track the drug's clinical trials.

Japan 24 hour drug Xofluza kills FLU but not U.S.
Japan has a new drug that could kill the flu in 24 hours. So why doesn't the U.S. have it? Xofluza is manufactured by Japanese drug maker Shionogi and won’t hit shelves until at least May — again, in Japan. According to the Wall Street Journal, the drug won’t be available in the U.S. until at least 2019. Currently, the only drug available in the U.S. to fight the flu is Tamiflu, which is taken twice daily over five consecutive days. Tamiflu doesn’t kill the flu virus — it just lowers the odds that patients will suffer serious complications, like pneumonia. It may also reduce the duration of the flu by a day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Xofluza works differently — it inhibits an enzyme the flu virus needs to replicate. The drug can work in 24 hours because it inhibits a process known as “cap snatching,” which is a mechanism used by viruses to hijack the mRNA (a nucleic acid in living cells that acts as a messenger for DNA) transcription system to allow the creation of viral RNAs, Sherif Mossad, M.D., an infectious disease specialist at Cleveland Clinic, tells Yahoo Lifestyle. He calls Xofluza an “excellent addition” to current flu-fighting medications. “This could lead to easier treatment of flu,” he adds. Infectious disease expert Amesh A. Adalja, M.D., senior scholar at the John’s Hopkins Center for Health Security, agrees. “The more antiviral options people have to treat the flu, the better,” he tells Yahoo Lifestyle. Tamiflu has the highest impact when it’s taken within the first 48 hours after the onset of flu symptoms. Adalja says it’s likely that early intervention will be better with Xofluza too. “The earlier you take any kind of medication, the better in general it will work,” he says. As with most drugs, there is potential for misuse. Mossad has concerns that if it’s regularly taken too late after the onset of the flu, it may lead to drug resistance. Regarding when we could see Xofluza in the U.S., Adalja says the medication will be subject to the standards of the Food and Drug Administration first. In a document on its website outlining the drug approval process, the FDA notes that drugs must pass animal testing for toxicity before drugmakers can apply for FDA approval. From there, they must undergo three phases of human trials to determine safety, effectiveness, dosage, and potential interactions with other drugs. “FDA approval is a lengthy process,” Adalja says. “We often find that drugs are approved in other countries before they’re approved in the U.S.” In fact, Japan has two other drugs approved to treat the flu that we don’t have in the U.S., he points out. Reza Nassiri, M.D., a professor of pharmacology and toxicology, family and community medicine at Michigan State University, tells Yahoo Lifestyle that the gone-in-24-hours report for Xofluza is based on symptoms, and that research is needed to confirm that the drug actually kills the flu virus. “It is certainly worth it to start limited clinical trials of this novel drug in the USA, but it is my understanding this will not happen until next year,” Nassiri says. Judging from the preclinical and clinical studies conducted by Shionogi, Nassiri says, the drug doesn’t seem to pose any kind of life-threatening risks to flu patients who take it as a single dose. Bottom line: This drug could be coming to the U.S., but you might be waiting a while.

BrisScience (May 2018): The Superbug Wars - Managing Antibiotic-Resistant Infections
One of the great threats to global health is the rise of bacteria that are resistant to all of our current antibiotics, the so-called ‘superbugs’. Researchers from the University of Queensland are at the forefront of efforts to develop solutions to this important problem. This talk will provide an overview of the threat that antibiotic resistance poses to human health – how it has arisen and what we can do to prevent a return to a ‘pre-antibiotic’ era. Examples of cutting-edge research from UQ laboratories, including the development of new antibiotic and immune-based alternatives to antibiotics, will shed light on international efforts aimed at preparing ourselves for the Superbug Wars. Join us this month to learn about how science is helping us arm ourselves against antibiotic-resistant infections. Presenters: Dr Mark Blaskovich is an antibiotic hunter based at the Centre for Superbug Solutions in the Institute for Molecular Bioscience at The University of Queensland. A medicinal chemist with 15 years of industrial drug development experience prior to his academic career, Mark has been developing new antibiotics to treat drug resistant pathogens and investigating the use of modified antibiotics to detect bacterial infections. Professor Matt Sweet is an immunologist and cell biologist at the Centre for Inflammation and Disease Research at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience at The University of Queensland. He studies cells of the immune system and their involvement in infectious and inflammatory diseases. Through manipulating the immune system so that it is better equipped to combat infectious diseases, Matt has been developing non-antibiotic alternatives for the treatment of drug-resistant bacterial infections.
Dr Whiting on The Swine Flu
https://phoenixvitamins.com/ The recent outbreak of the Swine Flu has got millions of people in a panic. While this strain of the flu virus is particularly worrisome due to the fact that it appears to be a combination of more than one viral strain. Normally virus that affect animals are not readily transmitted to humans and visa versa, but in this case the virus we are dealing with may be a combination of more than one strain and as such is much easier transmitted to humans and from human to human. While any virus that becomes widespread is cause for concern, we need to remember that this is not the first time that such a flu outbreak has occurred and it wont be the last. Due to the nature of virus, they rear their ugly heads ever so often and are usually carried on air currents from one region of the world to others. In the past we have seen such famous flu viruses as the Asian Flu, Hong Kong Flu, and most recently the Bird Flu. Each of these various flu strains has their peak time and then fades into relative obscurity, only to return again in a few years. Currently, there have been outbreaks in several countries including the United States. Here we have already seen cases of the Swine Flu in California, Texas, Kansas, Ohio, and New York. Around the world there have been cases in New Zealand, Scotland, and Mexico, with other cases likely to develop in other countries as well. Combined strains of the flu always increase the risk of human transmission, which is why officials are readying supplies of antiviral drugs such as Tamiflu. This current strain of the flu, which we have labeled the Swine Flu, is actually a combination of several strains of virus. This along with the fact that all viruses have the ability to mutate and change their makeup can make such viral strains more aggressive and resistant to treatments. Prevention from contracting such viruses should be a combination of several aggressive steps. The age old concepts of cleanliness such as washing your hands, covering your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing and avoiding concentrated crowds of people have been discussed on such programs as The Doctors, Oprah, and others. Dr. Gupta from CNN has often discussed these common medical recommendations for preventing the spread of this and other viruses. While there is no doubt that these common sense measures can go far in reducing exposure and the spread of any pathogen, there are other measures that can be taken to help prevent such viral threats as the Swine Flu. It doesnt matter what strain of flu virus is currently active, reducing the risk of contraction, be it from the Swine Flu, Bird Flu, Asian Flu or the Hong Kong Flu of many years ago, requires the same basic steps. Antiviral medications such as Tamiflu are recommended but it is also a good idea to boost your natural immune system as well. Every day your body is bombarded with dozens if not hundreds of pathogens, each with the potential to make you sick. The reason that we dont become ill and in fact are not even aware of such exposure is due to our internal department of defense called the immune system. As soon as you are exposed to these bugs, the body goes to work to build antibodies and other essential elements to combat the pathogen. It your immune system is strong and healthy, this will happen, in most cases, with such speed that you will be totally unaware of even having been exposed to the virus or bacteria at all. Have you ever wondered why so many people seem to catch every cold or flu that comes along? The use of antiviral medications such as Tamiflu, are indicated if you are in a high-risk situation. Immune boosting supplements are very important during outbreaks such as we are currently experiencing. We have developed a natural immune support formula, which we have been using for several years with excellent results. It was originally developed for those with immune system compromise, but thousands of people have come to rely on it during the regular cold and flu season every fall. Instead of waiting until a crisis is upon you and you need to use drugs such as Tamiflu, reducing the risk of contraction of viruses and bacteria is best accomplished by increasing immune function. Nutrients for Immunity can be found in The Institutes Targeted formula called ImmuGuard. ImmuGuard provides all the known immune boosting supplements for protecting the immune system naturally. This together with a Full Spectrum base line vitamin/mineral formula can go far to protect you and those around you from falling victim to these pathogens that are routinely found in our environment.

Please watch: "change your life. know what is deficient in you?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcJSvroTMrc -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- SWINE FLU or H1 N1 was a recent pandemic. main symptoms are cold, cough, respiratory difficulty and fever. in category C patient may become serious. more then 90 percent patients will be cured spontaneously by natural antibodies. Remaining 10 percent needs antiviral drugs like osceltamavir known as tamiflu. cough attiquets , hand hygine are important measures to reduce spread of this virus. effective vaccines are available now a days but they need to be taken every year as this virus is having capabilities to change itself. its transmission occurs mainly human to human. Swine Flu or H1N1 virus is a hybrid or mixture of 3 viruses 1.human flu 2.swine or pig flu 3.avian or bird flu. Case fatality rate is around less then 1 percent. that means 1 person out of 100 persons affected with H1N1 may die.though 99 percent will be recovered.considering the high communicability of the disease this 1 pecent can be quite high for a community. Mainstay of prevention for spread are 1.general measures like, coughing etiquette Frequent hand washing with soap and water Isolation of affected patients. 2.Vaccinnation:two types of vaccines available injectable and nasal spray. Both are having around 70 percent efficacy and excellent safety profile. Which one is to be given your pediatrician may decide.6 months onward all age groups including pregnant women may take it. 3.chemoprophylaxis: Means giving oscetamavir(tamiflu) if exposed to a swine flu patient. Treatment: Most important thing to remember is to start Tamiflu within 48 hours of the onset of the symptoms.to all category B patients.as after 48 hours Tamiflu effect will reduce drastically. No need to have investigation for the treatment purpose. By an large Tamiflu is very much effective with very good safety profile. till now no resistance is known. Correct amount of burden of H1N1 in this season is not known as investigation are done sparingly.but CDC says that H1N1 is now endemic and may be the most prevalent strain. Questions are Wellcome. Education and awareness are the most potent weapon to fight against all kind of evil in the life.

The swine flu is common in the agribusiness, and antibodies to swine flu are present in 20% of vetenarians and 5% of pig farm workes, and rarely kills pigs. However, this swine flu that has presented in Mexico, Texas, California, Queens NYC, London, Italy, etc. has genes of swine, avian, human, and asian flu. This is without any doubt a pandemic flu with a current case fatality estimated at 10 % plus, and rapidly is leaping across North America and to Europe. Since 1997, the H5N1 flu has spread to all continents. Genetics showed that six strains had high pathogenic case fatality rates in the range of 70% average from 25 % to 100 % case fatality rates in humans, with some clusters of human to human spread, with close physical contact. Defiencies in two amino acids needed to allow rapid attachment to human cells was found in all strains, but can be acquired by recombinants with H9N2 or H7N3 or H3N2 etc. endemic human stains that can also coinfect pigs, birds, agricultural animals, and animals in the wild. Until fall 2008, the avian flu did not optimally replicate unless it was at 106 degrees or higher, but now it has acquired the capacity to replicate easily at 98.6 Farhenheit.

H5N9 Chinese Avian Pre-pandemic FLU Alert
New Alert H7N9 Chinese Avian Flu 38% motrality, H7N9 Pandemic Alert, Three Mutations H7N9 to Pandemic Flu, Dangers WHO Pandemic Flu, Reduced Mortality Increased Infectivity,
The virus is an influenza A virus, carrying the designation H1N1. * It is genetically different from the fully human H1N1 seasonal influenza virus that has been circulating globally for the past few years. The new flu virus contains DNA typical to avian, swine and human viruses, including elements from European and Asian swine viruses. * Flu viruses mutate constantly, which is why the flu vaccine is changed every year, and they can also swap DNA in a process called re-assortment. Most animals can get flu but viruses rarely pass from one species to another. * From December 2005 through February 2009, 12 cases of human infection with swine influenza were confirmed, all but one among people who had contact with pigs. There was no evidence of human-to-human transmission. * Symptoms of swine flu in people are similar to those of seasonal influenza — sudden onset of fever, coughing, muscle aches and extreme tiredness. Swine flu appears to cause more diarrhea and vomiting than normal flu. * People rarely catch avian flus. Notable exceptions include the H1N1 strain that caused the 1918 pandemic and H5N1 bird flu, which has killed 257 out of 421 infected in 15 countries since 2003, according to the World Health Organization. * Seasonal flu kills between 250,000 and 500,000 people globally in an average year. * When a new strain of flu starts infecting people, and when it acquires the ability to pass from person to person, it can spark a pandemic. The last pandemic was in 1968 and killed about a million people. * In 1976 a new strain of swine flu started infecting people and worried U.S. health officials started widespread vaccination. More than 40 million people were vaccinated. But several cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome, a severe and sometime fatal condition that can be linked to come vaccines, caused the U.S. government to stop the program. The incident led to widespread distrust of vaccines in general.

CDC suggest flu-affected patients be treated with antivirals
CINCINNATI (WKRC) – There is a suggestion from the CDC that says that, if you get sick, you should not try to diagnose your own illness and should instead seek medical attention and possibly antiviral medication. On Monday, the Northern Kentucky Health Department backed the suggestion, saying they have had 1300 cases and three deaths in the area. Last year, on the same week of January, there were only 80 cases. The weather doesn't make us sick, it just makes us want to not be outside. Add that to the holiday travel from home to home and when it comes to the spread of the flu, all of that adds up. “That is probably what happened to precipitate it,” said Carolum Fiutem, who is a system infection prevention officer for TriHealth There is now a new health advisory from the Centers for Disease Control: All hospitalized, severely ill, and high-risk patients with suspected or confirmed influenza, should be treated with antivirals. “This year has come a little early, and the illness seems to be more severe and a lot more widespread,” said Dr. Stephen Blatt, who is the head of infectious diseases for TriHealth. That means that as a lot more people get sick, they have a greater potential for severe complications. Since antivirals are medications such as “Tamiflu”, that if given within 48 hours, may help shorten the symptoms of the flu or make them less severe. That could help reduce the odds that some will end up with illnesses such as pneumonia that can't be overcome. You may benefit from those medications so you don't wind up in the hospital if you get sick. The CDC says one study did show that getting them even at 72 hours after you get sick, still may have some benefit. The severity of cases, so far, is a big concern.

A rising Replikin Count of a particular influenza strain, indicating rapid replication of the virus, is an early warning which has been followed consistently by an outbreak of the specific strain. The current increase appears to be specific to H1N1 More than 12% of H1N1 influenza A infections in the U.S. last season were resistant to oseltamivir (Tamiflu) and the prevalence appears to be rising dramatically, according to a team of CDC-led researchers.

Scientists say the H7N9 bird flu is mutating to infect humans
Scientists believe that the H7N9 avian influenza virus is evolving to adapt better to human cells. A study of samples taken from recent cases of the bird flu in China shows that the virus is mutating to thrive in the cooler temperatures found in the human upper respiratory system. This suggests that the virus will be better able to infect humans. Flu viruses carry hemagglutinin and neuraminidase activity proteins on their surfaces. Inside, they contain eight RNA segments of genetic material needed to produce new viruses. When different strains of the virus enter a host cell, the elements can recombine to create new mutant viruses. In the case of H7N9, scientists say they have traced the virus back to three different strains of bird flu. Hemagglutinin proteins found on the virus have mutated to be more adaptable to the conditions of the human body, leading scientists to believe that it could evolve into a strain that might be transmissible between humans, and thus potentially pose the risk of a pandemic. At present, bird flu is only transmitted from bird-to-bird and bird-to-human. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Crying dog breaks the internet’s heart — but this sad dog story has a happy ending" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4prKTN9bYQc -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Influenza Visit our website: http://www.sliderbase.com/ Free PowerPoint Presentations for teaching and learning Influenza is an acute, viral respiratory infection. Fever, chills, headache, aches and pains throughout the body, sore throat which may lead to bronchitis or pneumonia. Vomiting and diarrhoea may also occur. Many deaths have been attributed to influenza A pandemic is a world wide spread of infection occurring in many countries simultaneously. Flu pandemics occur approximately every thirty years. Flu pandemics occur because a new strain of the virus emerges for which people have no immunity and there are no vaccines available. New flu viruses occur due to mutation Mutation occurs because different strains of influenza virus can exchange genes by infecting different animals Avian influenza viruses can exchange genes with human influenza viruses creating hybrid strains The cause of influenza is the influenza virus. Influenza A, B and C viruses are found Influenza A viruses are associated with serious illness and pandemics Haemagglutinin - this glycoprotein plays a part in infection and provides the “H” in the strain type. Haemagglutinin attaches the virus to cells and allows the viral envelope to fuse with the cell membrane and enter cells. Neuraminidase – has a mushroom shape, its role is to allow the release of viruses to infect other cells H refers to Haemagglutinin types and each is given a number H1, H2 etc, Neuraminidase is designated N and different forms are available as well e.g. H5N1 (avian) and H1N1. Different combinations of H and N glycoproteins give rise to different strains The virus is spread by inhalation or by direct contact. Reservoirs of infection are primarily humans, but birds and pigs can act as reservoirs. The multiple host status makes for mixing of flu types.

Oseltamivir a Prescription Used to Treat Certain Types of Flu - Overview
Oseltamivir is a prescription medication used to treat certain types of flu in those who have had symptoms of the flu for no longer than 2 days. This medication is also used to prevent certain strains of flu if you have been exposed to someone who has it or when there is a flu outbreak. Oseltamivir belongs to a group of drugs called neuraminidase inhibitors. These work by stopping the spread of the flu virus in the body. Oseltamivir helps shorten the time that flu symptoms such as a stuffy or runny nose, sore throat, cough, muscle or joint aches, tiredness, headache, fever, and chills last. This medication comes a capsule and an oral suspension. It is usually taken once a day, with or without food. Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, and stomach pain.
