Who Document influenza A, H1n1 vaccination, experts explain what is Squalene Part Two
Squalene, a substance that until a few months ago was known only to manufacturers of flu vaccines and some expert biochemist has become the substance of which it is now said, almost always inappropriately, even in local markets.Â The name is clearly suggestive of a dangerous animal of the tropical seas, but the substance itself is the most organic and natural world: it is actually a compound essential for life as it is used by the body as a brick to buildÂ steroid hormones and other lipid substances.Â In particular, the crucial intermediate for the synthesis of cholesterol that occurs in the liver, according to the following reaction:Continua..
Who document on the safety of pandemic vaccine H1N1 2009 Part One
Geneva. World Health Organization (WHO) has received information from 16 of the 40 countries that are leading the vaccination campaign with the pandemic vaccine.Â Based on the information collected in these 16 countries, the World Health Organization estimates that about 80 million doses of pandemic vaccine have been distributed and about 65 million people have been vaccinated.Â The national immunization campaign started in Australia and in China in late September.
Vaccination campaigns are currently under way to protect people against pandemic flu are among the most massive in the history of different countries, and numbers are growing daily.Â Given the large number of doses of vaccine, at least some rare adverse reactions, not detectable during clinical trials of important dimensions, it may take, highlighting the need for strict monitoring on the safety.Â The results regarding the data are encouraging.
Swine flu is the term which we refer to cases of influenza caused by endemic transmission of orthomyxovirus from pigs to humans.Â Swine influenza viruses are called viruses (SIV).Â The distinction is not based on phylogeny.Â The SIV strains isolated so far have been classified as Influenzavirus C or as one of the many subtypes dellInfluenzavirus A  It is now believed that the swine flu is a respiratory disease of pigs caused by an influenza virus type A.Â This type of flu strikes on a regular pigs. Normally, humans are not affected by this virus but have been documented cases of infection (12 cases were observed in the United States during the period from December 2005 to February 2009, usually between people who have been in contact with pigsÂ .
Recently (April 2009) a virus of this type has infected humans and has also been shown to spread from human to human.Â Are not yet available data indicate how easy it is certain that the passage of the virus from human to human.
According to researchers at the University of Pittsburgh, the virus appeared for the first time in 1918, over the years have alternated periods of recession spreading to other temporary from 1977 accompanies the seasonal flu virus.Continua..
Influenza Vaccination and Control Part Four
The influenza vaccine can be produced in various ways, the traditional method is to grow the virus in fertilized chicken eggs.Â After purification, the virus is inactivated (eg by treatment with detergent) to produce a vaccine with an inactivated virus.Â Alternatively, the virus can be grown in eggs until it loses its virulence, so as to produce a live attenuated vaccine.
The whole virus vaccines can cause the immune system reacts as if the body were actually infected and can appear symptoms of infection (many symptoms of colds and flu are just general infection symptoms), even if they are not serious or lastingÂ such as those caused by true infezione.Il most dangerous side effect is the allergic reaction is the viral material that residues of chicken eggs used for the cultivation of the virus.However, these reactions are extremely rare.Â The vaccine should not be given to: children under 6 months, people with allergies to egg protein (in industrial production because influenza viruses are grown in chicken eggs).
In addition to vaccines consisting of attenuated or inactivated whole virus, we now have split vaccines consisting of viral particles subjected to lysis, or subunit vaccines (which contain only the glycoproteins that form the outer covering of the virus).Â The introduction of split and subunit vaccines has made it possible to clear the side effects of the vaccine.
The research includes studies on the influence on the molecular virology, on how the virus produces disease (pathogenesis), the immune response, viral genetics and how the virus spreads (epidemiology).Â These studies help the development of countermeasures, such as a better understanding of the immune response to vaccine development and helps in understanding the mechanism by which the virus invades the cells helps the development of antiviral drugs.Â A major research program is the Influenza Genome Sequencing Project, which is creating a library of sequences, which should help to clarify what factors make one strain more lethal than another, which genes are involved in immunity and how the virus evolves overÂ time .Continua..
Influenza Diagnosis and Prevention Part three
The word influence is used to mean a disease banal, bland, friction in the history of this disease, usually due to bacterial complications in the past has wiped out thousands of victims.Â Antibiotic era bacterial superinfection often a time have been averted, but the disease keeps its pathological characteristics.
All the symptoms of flu are common to many other diseases, which leads to confusing especially with pharyngitis, tonsillitis and the common cold.Â It is the overall framework to increase the reliability of diagnosis:
Onset of symptoms usually sudden and abrupt, accompanied by chills and sweating.
Fever above 38 Â°, lasting from 3 to 4 days.
Malaise, and musculoskeletal pain, often severe.
Fatigue and weakness, which, in contrast to fever, may last up to 2-3 weeks.
Common pains in the chest during respiration and especially cough.
Increased susceptibility to development of other forms of disease (bronchitis, pneumonia).
Influenza can also be fatal, especially in vulnerable, elderly or chronically ill.
The definitive diagnosis can only be done with the isolation of virus from cell cultures of naso-pharyngeal swabs, or by titration of specific antibodies, and finally with molecular biology techniques (polymerase chain reaction) can distinguish the RNAÂ influenza virus from respiratory or flu-siniciziali.
There are rapid test performed in the clinic, but they have a sensitivity and specificity not exceeding the clinical diagnosis, so they can be helpful only in the early stages of the epidemic or final.Â In the course of the epidemic is costly procedures and the rest useless.Â Studies of decision analysis suggest that in fact during local influenza outbreaks, the prevalence is over 70%, then patients with any combination of symptoms including those described above can be treated with neuraminidase inhibitors without testing.Â Even in the absence of local outbreaks, treatment may be justified in the elderly during the influenza season when the prevalence exceeds 15%.
Since the anti-viral drugs in the treatment of influenza are much less effective at least promptly administered, it is important to begin treatment as soon as you have a reasonable assurance of clinical disease, combining the elements with local epidemiological data.Continua..
Influenza A-B-C and Pandemics Part Two.
Etiological cause of influenza, the virus family Orthomyxoviridae, was discovered for the first time in 1931 by Richard Schope in pigs.Â This discovery was followed by the isolation of virus in humans by a group of researchers led by Patrick Laidlaw at the Medical Research Council in England in 1933.Â However, only in 1935 when Wendell Stanley for the first time studied the tobacco mosaic virus was not including the nature of mobile phone viruses.
The first significant step in the prevention of influenza in 1944 was the development of a vaccine for influenza by Thomas Francis, Jr., based on the work of Frank Macfarlane Burnet, who demonstrated loss of virulence when the virus was grown inÂ fertilized chicken eggs.Â Application of the comments from Francis allowed the research team at the University of Michigan to develop the first influenza vaccine, with the support of the U.S. Army.Â The military was deeply involved in research because of the experience in World War I, when thousands of troops were killed by the virus in a few months.

Influenza Definition and History Part One
Influenza is an infectious disease caused by RNA viruses of the family Orthomyxoviridae.Â Is characterized by systemic symptoms (fever is not always present, malaise, headache and musculoskeletal pain and breathing, cough, sore throat) common to many other viral diseases.Â The onset is usually abrupt and sudden fever lasts 3-4 days.
The name of this infection comes from the old astrological conception of this disease, which stated that the disease was caused by influence of the stars.Â In fact, one can understand what the Latin words obscuri coeli influential. The symptoms of human influenza were described by Hippocrates about 2400 years ago.Â Since then, the virus has caused several pandemics.Â The historical data are difficult to interpret, because the symptoms may be similar to those of other diseases such as diphtheria, typhoid fever or dengue.Â The word influence was introduced at the beginning of the fifteenth century in Italy to describe an epidemic caused by the influence of the stars, the same term was accepted in the English language in the eighteenth century, while the French call the disease as the grippe. [Â 4] The first certain record of a flu pandemic dates back to 1580, when the virus grows in Asia and spread to Europe through Africa.Mortality was also high because of the habit of making salassi.Nella Renaissance Rome around 8000 people were killed, along with many Spanish cities.Â The pandemic continued sporadically through the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and in 1830-1833 was particularly extensive, infecting about one fourth of the exposed population .Continua..
Ten times less aggressive than the seasonal flu, to date H1N1 has killed 11 deaths out of 400 000 estimated cases, while last year the season has made 8 000 deaths over 4 million cases, the deputy minister for health claims Ferruccio FazioÂ .Â (Source http://www.ansa.it/web/notizie/rubr ).Â These statements and data concerning infections and deaths should now be an assurance that the much-feared pandemic is not so terrible, in fact, we can say that someone decided to alarmism and exaggeration in spending on vaccines, given the current data.Â According to estimates, the peak flu should arrive in late November.Â In this case, most people described as at risk may be infected and develop this free antibodies against influenza A H1N1.Â So, you should test to see if you already have the specific antibodies against the flu, if so, the vaccine would be useless.
Influenza A vaccine Knowledge is good for health
Mysteries, poisons, accusations, denials and rumors have accompanied the alleged affair of the global pandemic of swine flu, which began with the deaths in Mexico and arrived a few days ago the first Italian vaccination.Â Who to trust?
The vaccine was administered in fact, last Thursday, Oct. 15, with unusual days in advance on the programs, a physician in charge of public hygiene in Milan and sarebbeproseguito these days on the medical staff of public health, personnel and administrative services on HealthÂ on the staff of the Italian post office and that of Telecom.Â Then, he did know the Ministry of Welfare, will be vaccinated people at risk aged between 2 and 65.Â Except that siviene know that, paradoxically, 60% of the Italian doctors will not undergo the A-H1N1 vaccine, which the deputy minister Fazio does not see as a failure because, he says, doctors who will undergo still reach a percentage of veryÂ 20% higher than that in a normal seasonal influenza.
This does not put the question on why the vast majority of Italian doctors do not vaccinate against this influence that has been well described in the manner of a plague of the century.Â As to why many of these doctors against doing too much to their patients.As Roberto Santi doctor Asl of Genoa, which states: The common flu each year kills half a million people in the world and nobody talks about it, and avian flu, which is mounted on the same campaign of swine, caused 250Â deaths in 10 years. Â In his hospital, the San Martino, adheres to the vaccination campaign, only 10% of medical staff.Â And Renato Right, provincial secretary of the SMI in Savona (Union of Italian doctors) adds: The swine flu vaccine has not been tested enough.Â Could have serious side effects.Â I have always believed in the vaccines tested well, not those created in a hurry.Â I, for one I do not vaccinate. Â If this is so, the story definitely needs to be investigated.Continua..
is the book of the German physician Dr. Gerhard Buchwald that protects damaged by vaccinations and is considered the greatest German expert on issues related to damage from the vaccine.Â A large coalition of health agencies, medical and pharmaceutical claims that vaccines protect against disease, improving the quality of life and health.Â Dr.Â Buchwald G.Â this book demonstrates that the opposite is true, namely: that the serious infectious diseases and epidemics were disappearing before vaccinations were introduced, and that sickens people vaccinated, the risk of damage from the vaccine today is much greater than theÂ probability of damage caused by natural disease for them; that children have strong reactions to vaccination and get sick easily because of the damage to the immune system that produce the vaccines.
