Do early subjective

Epidemic broke out again in Tan Duc as soon expire 21 days no outbreak.

While many are stretching their local stamping service, there are places in the area but were soon translated subjective feeling empty translation. Go into service in some areas of Phu Binh district, we have witnessed the side of pork sold in markets toads, even pork reflect only the CPC as long as 50 meters in Phu Luong - where the epidemic The first and until now has spread throughout the provinces of Thai Nguyen.

Vietnam: Meeting to discuss measures against cholera in Ben Tre

While investigating the source is not contagious, but through the analysis of experts at the meeting showed that the cholera in this local spread risk from water sources.

> Bệnh tả có nguy cơ thành dịch tại Bến Tre" onmouseover="'#ebeff9'" onmouseout="'#fff'">Afternoon 3 / 6, in Ben Tre province, representing the Department of Preventive Medicine, Ministry of Health Institute of Hygiene and Public Health, the Pasteur Institute in Ho Chi Minh City is meeting with the Steering Committee and disease prevention Ben bamboo desk solution to deal with outbreaks of cholera are local.

Up to Date 3 / 6, Ben Tre province has 24 cases of cholera and more than 200 cases of acute diarrhea, concentrated in the South Mo Cay District, Mo Cay North, Giong Trom.

Therefore, to deal with the cholera outbreak risk across the board, the professional body under the Ministry of Health to coordinate with the health sector and the government of Ben Tre provincial implementation of emergency measures from the prevention, treatment of patients to the propaganda and education in the community, which focused disease management good sources, treatment and patient advocacy on food hygiene. /.

Vietnam: Ben proposal announced cholera

Previously reported here
It is known, PM 26 / 5, Ben Tre Province Health Department report, has recorded 12 cholera patients and nearly 50 other patients with acute diarrhea.

Ben proposal announced cholera

According to the General Hospital of Cu Lao Minh City, Mo Cay district Nam (Ben Tre), to this afternoon, 3.6, there were 209 patients hospitalized with diarrhea treatment. Of these, the central province of Preventive Medicine, said 19 patients have tested positive for cholera bacteria, in other cases are suspicious signs.

Notably, to date, the cause of outbreaks and major factors causing the spread has not been determined.

Hospital: Overload

Calculated from the first patient in Tan Phu Tay commune, Mo Cay District North, to 31.5 cases there were 15 patients in two districts of North and Mo Mo Cay South Cay is determined to be positive for cholera bacteria. Besides, 39 cases of diarrhea are signs of suspected cholera were treated in hospital Cu Lao Minh, Nam Mo Cay.

Dr. Le Quang Trung, deputy director general hospital Cu Lao Minh area concerned: the rate of spread alarmingly, each hospital must receive on average 10 cases of diarrhea. Meanwhile, hospitals Cu Lao Minh area only 350 beds. In particular, science has only 45 beds spread.

This fact shows that overload has exceeded 4 times the capacity of treatment. If severe cases receiving hemodialysis will be the hospital anything about it. Therefore, according to China, for quarantine treatment of diarrhea, the Cu Lao Minh hospital must transfer patients with diarrhea not related to treatment in other departments. Despite many cases still have to monitor treatment in transmission corridor science.

Nearly three-week outbreak, Ben still can not find the cause, although the central provinces of Preventive Medicine, Institute Pasteur, public health and hygiene city. HCM was there to review the disease situation, water sampling, sample analysis to determine the transmission route and measures to prevent coordination.

Under these circumstances, the provincial Health Department has sent a written request of the provincial Health announced cholera in two northern districts of Mo Cay and South Cay mine.

According to hospital doctors Sanitation City public health. City, brackish water delivery season and weather conditions are good for cholera spread quickly. Therefore, the cholera outbreak extended as unavoidable risk.

Embarrassing deal

In such circumstances, the health sector only propagating epidemic prevention measures are key. Thereby, the agencies noted on the rivers of water that people are using for the purpose of life can cause an outbreak and community mobilization cooked, take nine.

Currently, Ben Tre focus for most activities of treatment - anti-epidemic. However, according to Dr Le Quang Trung, if approved funding for anti-epidemic hospital can completely free treatment to patients. Also present, only patients with free drugs is supported from Preventive Medicine. Thus, patients describe only free treatment when the disease was officially announced.

According to experts, cholera is not too critical if they are hospitalized from the start of treatment. But, as overload stress when the patient has recovered but has no negative results have also continued inpatient wait for the results.

Biggest concern now is not to stop cholera in the northern Mo Cay district, Nam Mo Cay, Cho Lach that there were three patients in Thanh Phu district, five patients Vung Liem District and Long Lake (Vinh Long) and a patient in Tri Ton district (An Giang) ...

According to BS Biology, LCKH patients diagnosed through blood and cultured based on epidemiological factors, clinical symptoms. Usually patients infected after transplantation of blood LCKH are matched pig streptococcus bacteria in the skin. But there are patients who do not appear because the pig streptococcus bacteria had previously been treated early and proper antibiotic dosage. However, based on factors such as prior disease arises, the patient eat pork products, the clinical symptoms in human patients, the doctor will have appropriate treatment.

Australia: Seasonal Flu Vaccine Remains Suspended for young children without risk factors - Advice from the Chief Medical Officer

Australian Government
Department of Health and Ageing
Professor Jim Bishop AO
Commonwealth Chief Medical Officer
1 June 2010

After consideration of the results to date of a comprehensive investigation into the safety of the seasonal flu vaccine for young children, I have advised, that as a precaution, the suspension of seasonal flu vaccination should continue for healthy children under five years of age.

Since the first reports of a higher than usual occurrence of fever with convulsions in young children following seasonal flu vaccination in WA in April, investigations nationally have confirmed that a small number of children aged under five across the country have experienced fever with convulsions in the 24 hours after vaccination with the 2010 seasonal influenza vaccine. These reactions have been associated mainly with Fluvax, manufactured by CSL.

The investigation conducted by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), in association with the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) and the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance has identified no apparent clinical, biological or epidemiological factors that would explain the higher than expected observed rates of fever with convulsions. Laboratory testing of the vaccine by the TGA and an audit of the CSL manufacturing plant have also revealed no abnormalities to explain this event. However this investigation is continuing.

Nevertheless, to date, epidemiological analyses point to a rate of febrile convulsions in children aged under five years following 2010 seasonal influenza vaccination of about 9 per 1000 children vaccinated, while the expected rate would be less than 1 per 1000.

While I am recommending that healthy children aged under five years not be vaccinated with seasonal flu vaccine this year, where a child aged under five has medical risk factors that would cause serious health effects for the child if they got the flu, parents should discuss with their doctor whether, on clinical evaluation of the risks and benefits, a seasonal flu vaccination would be the best option.

Doctors should note that, while a higher rate of febrile convulsions has been identified using Fluvax, insufficient doses of this season’s Influvac and Vaxigrip vaccines have been used in children in this age group to accurately determine the rates for these vaccines. In addition, as the cause of the increase in febrile convulsions is not yet known, caution should be exercised.

In addition, the alternative for both healthy children and those with risk factors is the swine flu vaccine, Panvax, which has been shown to be safe and effective in young children and is freely available.

Influenza itself often causes fever in young children which can lead to convulsions and flu vaccine can also produce these side effects but there is a clear signal that the rate of fever with convulsions is higher with this year's vaccine across all jurisdictions.

The investigation found that, while there are some cases of fever with convulsions associated with the swine flu vaccine, these were in line with the expected rate of side effects for a flu vaccine based on the swine flu vaccine clinical trials and experience with seasonal flu vaccines in previous years, both in Australia and internationally.

The TGA will continue to work with overseas Regulators and the US CDC in Atlanta to ascertain the scientific reason for this phenomenon.

WHO: new basis for H5N1 vaccine developed

/02 Jun 2010
Scientists have used bird flu virus samples from Egypt to develop a new basis for a vaccine against the toxic H5N1 strain that continues to circulate, the World Health Organization said.

The WHO said the candidate virus was developed at the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta "thanks to the ministry of health and population of Egypt, for providing virus specimens".
"This recombinant vaccine virus is available for distribution," it said in a statement. "Institutions, companies and others interested in pandemic vaccine development who wish to receive these candidate vaccine viruses should contact either the WHO Global Influenza Program ... or the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention."
Pharmaceutical companies including Novartis are already working on vaccines against H5N1 bird flu, which has killed or forced the culling of more than 300 million birds since 2003 as it spread to 61 countries in Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
The U.N.'s Food and Agriculture Organization reported 250 outbreaks of H5N1 in birds in February alone -- in Bangladesh, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Laos, Nepal and Vietnam.
Avian influenza has killed 261 people out of 424 infected since 2003.
Its statement on said flu experts were continuing to monitor the evolution of avian influenza and other flu viruses and stressed the need for countries to keep providing samples of identified strains.
"Countries are encouraged to share with WHO their specimens and/or isolates, both from humans and animals, for their inclusion in the WHO H5N1 vaccine virus development and selection process, in addition to other activities of public health significance," it said.

Puzzling inefficiency of H5N1 influenza vaccines in Egyptian poultry

Proceedings of the National Academy of Science of the United States

Contributed by Robert G. Webster, May 10, 2010 (sent for review March 1, 2010)

In Egypt, efforts to control highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza virus in poultry and in humans have failed despite increased biosecurity, quarantine, and vaccination at poultry farms. The ongoing circulation of HP H5N1 avian influenza in Egypt has caused >100 human infections and remains an unresolved threat to veterinary and public health. Here, we describe that the failure of commercially available H5 poultry vaccines in Egypt may be caused in part by the passive transfer of maternal H5N1 antibodies to chicks, inhibiting their immune response to vaccination. We propose that the induction of a protective immune response to H5N1 is suppressed for an extended period in young chickens. This issue, among others, must be resolved and additional steps must be taken before the outbreaks in Egypt can be controlled.
