“Yippie-ki-yay, motherfucker.” http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0095016/quotes  All hail God, Jesus, Mohamed, Allah, the Pharaoh’s, Mother Nature, whom, whatever and Buddha too, as Baxter International Inc. (BAX) has launched full-scale production of a vaccine for the A/H1N1 flu virus that could be  ready for use as early as July.  http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20090612-714016.html 

We’re talking two weeks until projected availability! So much for clinical testing or knowing if it works. Novartis has announced it is ready to rock and roll of on it’s own vaccine.  Replikins’ officials say the company’s PanFLu™ vaccine is ready for clinical and a host of other pharma companies apparently have our ass covered to resist our exposure to the latest supposed freak of nature, Influenza A/H1N1.  Others can be found here at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/06/12/vaccine-for-pandemic-h1n1-swine-flu-scientists-roll-up-sleeves/

The creator must love us humans and especially the scientists at Baxter, but in the most humble offering of advise- wake the frig up.  No way on God’s green earth could a company, not only a company with a laboratory 50 miles away from the Swine Flu ground zero outbreak, with a history of malfeasance develop a vaccine within days of receiving the “seed virus” from WHO, be ready to ramp up production of a vaccine against the H1N1 Swine Flu, and save the world from a potential catastrophic proportion of millions of sick and dead.

I was born at night, but it wasn’t last night.  The virus is allegedly a brand new strain that is targeting young and  healthy people.  The Main Stream Media would have us believe it is a never before seen intercontinental mixture of human, avian and pig viruses from America, Europe and Asia but the leading scientists of the world are calling bullshit, proving that this has been around for perhaps more than 15 years.

Various sources are reporting this new undetected virus that has occurred basically is a freak of nature that is now spreading across the world infecting thousands via human to human contact,  and glory be the pharmaceutical companies are ready with a vaccine within days of WHO announcing a Pandemic.  Oh, get a F*%)!ng grip on reality. 

How long has the AIDS virus been around?  Scientists have had years to study it;  “HIV mutates rapidly, and in the vast majority of people these antibodies cannot completely neutralize the many mutant versions of the virus present in any single person” http://www.iavi.org/research-development/Pages/is-an-AIDS-vaccine-possible.aspx  Mutant versions?  The reassortment of H1N1 and its mutations are all over the map from Gen Bank.

Some licensed vaccines, called live-attenuated vaccines, use a crippled but living version of the targeted pathogen—or disease-causing organism—to teach the immune system what it must attack to prevent infection. Such vaccines, however, cannot be developed against HIV because of concern that the crippled HIV might revert to its disease-causing form. But live-attenuated SIV vaccines have proven effective in protecting rhesus macaques from infection with SIV, providing a proof of concept for an AIDS vaccine.

SIV is the simian immunodeficiency virus- originated with monkeys and mutated to humans.  Bird Flu, Avian Flu, Swine Flu, Hong Kong Flu, Russian Flu- is it all the business of monkeying around with human lives.

First off, a virus is for all intents and purposes not a living thing so tell me how you are going to kill it?  You aren’t and neither is Baxter, Novartis, or Obama. 

You might put faith in Obama to fix everything from the auto and banking industry to health care reform, but why is he so confident in a plan for mass inoculations at this stage is when there is little proof they would be effective?

Baxter is supposed to follows a BSL3 (Biosafety Level 3) protocol to prevent cross-contamination of materials. “It was a combination of just the process itself, (and) technical and human error in this procedure,” said Baxter’s director of global bioscience communications Christopher Bona, ” when samples of H5N1 from Baxter’s Austrian labs contaminated batches of the less harmful H3N2 seasonal flu virus that it was supplying to European nations.

This is not the first time that vaccine companies have been caught distributing vaccines contaminated with deadly viruses.

In 2006 it was revealed that Bayer Corporation had discovered that their injection drug, which was used by hemophiliacs, was contaminated with the HIV virus. Internal documents prove that after they positively knew that the drug was contaminated, they took it off the U.S. market only to dump it on the European, Asian and Latin American markets, knowingly exposing thousands, most of them children, to the live HIV virus. Government officials in France went to prison for allowing the drug to be distributed. The documents show that the FDA colluded with Bayer to cover-up the scandal and allowed the deadly drug to be distributed globally. No Bayer executives ever faced arrest or prosecution in the United States. http://swine-flu-virus.com/alert-potentially-deadly-swine-flu-spreading-throughout-the-u-s.html

In The U.S. we have two vaccine committees, Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/CommitteesMeetingMaterials/BloodVaccinesandOtherBiologics/VaccinesandRelatedBiologicalProductsAdvisoryCommittee/default.htm) & ACIP ( http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/recs/ACIP/default.htm): The Advisory Committee on Immunizations Practices.  How many of the people on these committees have ties to the pharmaceutical industry while they pick, choose and approve waivers eliminating liability? 

Since 9-11 our economy has been focused on terrorism risk management, now we turn to pandemic risk management- how convenient for Obama’s health care reforms and pharmaceutical companies profits.  The latest report from the Markle Task Force urges the President and Congress to take swift action to ensure that policy makers have the best information available to confront a stark set of 21st century national security challenges. http://www.markle.org/resources/national_security/

Thanks be to the Gods in White Coats.

Now that The World Health Organization has issued a full pandemic threat,  I find my antennae tuning in to the rapid manufacture and issuance of drugs, vaccines and potential for mass inoculations. 

Drug makers have obtained the new influenza A H1N1 seed virus in the past two weeks, enabling them to begin the production process by growing the virus in eggs.  http://www.reuters.com/article/mergersNews/idUSWLA645920090611 

Swiss pharmaceuticals company Novartis AG http://www.novartis.com/  said today, it has produced a first batch of experimental swine flu vaccine.  The vaccine hasn’t yet been tested and cannot be used in humans yet. It was made in cells, rather than grown in eggs as is usually the case with vaccines, the company said. http://www.philstar.com/Article.aspx?articleId=476980&publicationSubCategoryId=200  Damn, that was fast and they didn’t have to use eggs solving a potential problem for those with egg allergens.

Not to be outdone, Sinovac Biotech Company,http://www.sinovac.com/ a vaccine-focused biotech company in China, started efforts to manufacture A/H1N1 influenza vaccine for human use on Monday, after it received the flu strain samples from the WHO, reported Beijing News Tuesday. There are another 10 Chinese drug companies that will obtain the flu strain samples “NYMCX-179A” from the WHO this week. http://english.people.com.cn/90001/90782/90880/6675151.html

It can take five or six months to come up with an entirely novel influenza vaccine,” says John Sterling, Editor in Chief of GEN- Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News. “There is a great deal of hope that biotech and pharma companies might be able to have something ready sooner.” http://www.genengnews.com/articles/chitem.aspx?aid=2938  In just two weeks he has been proven wrong,  as as scientists around the world are accelerating their efforts to develop a vaccine against the H1N1 influenza virus (Swine flu) as rapidly as possible.  

Chan from WHO said she would recommend that vaccine manufacturers proceed with mass production of an inoculation against the new swine flu strain as soon as they finish production of seasonal vaccine, which she estimated would be complete in about two weeks.  HHS spokesman Bill Hall said Thursday that no decision has been made on full-scale production because there is no need yet to make that decision….. The agency awarded a contract several weeks ago to five manufacturers to develop an H1N1 antigen. The companies are producing pilot lots. Clinical testing will take place over the summer, Hall said.  At the end of the summer, HHS will decide whether to go into production. http://entertainment.wagerweb.com/wtf/who-swine-flu-at-stage-6-and-unstoppable-11967.html 

 Dr. Rambaut says”…the increased detection of mildly deleterious mutations resulting from intensive epidemic surveillance; such mutations would more typically be eliminated and escape detection mutations could be adaptations to the new host species….http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/vnfv/ncurrent/pdf/nature08182.pdf  and at his blog http://tree.bio.ed.ac.uk/groups/influenza/ 

Andrew Rambaut, PhD, of the University of Edinburgh’s Institute of Evolutionary Biology says “These pages exist to enable the rapid dissemination of results resulting from the analysis of genetic data from the ongoing Influenza A/H1N1 outbreak attributed to swine flu. All data used, unless otherwise specified, was made available by GISAID –http://platform.gisaid.org/dante-cms/live/struktur.jdante?aid=1131 or NCBI http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/  and can be obtained directly from these sites. It is also reviewed at http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/swineflu/news/jun1109rambau.html

Citing the world’s best scientists and research- clearly virus mutations can escape detection, have multiple reassortment, have been around for years and contrary to the Pork Industry claims- eight genomic segments of the novel H1N1 have been circulating in swine populations for a number of years, up to 17 years.  How they got there,only God knows- at least so far.

More importantly, how could WHO, the CDC, NATO, IMF, WB, Department of HHS, and any other agency order an H1N1 antigen or a vaccine when the scientists are still studying the viruses genetic make up and its mutations? Drug makers just got a virus seed two weeks ago, yet clinical studies will take place in the U.S. this summer?  What about the criteria for safety, potency and quality?  Will these anticipated clinical testings take place on animals before the initiation of human clinical trials?

Are you willing to stand in line for an untested vaccine against H1N1?  Maybe they will develop an oral one that can be mailed via the post office while you are in isolation or quarantine.

One year ago, a new technology predicted that significant outbreaks of the H1N1 flu virus would occur within 6 to 12 months…Would- not Could!  The predictions, made by Replikins, were based on correlations of flu virus specimen and Pub Med documentation of major outbreaks during the past 90 years.” Naturally Replikins’ officials say the company’s PanFLu™ vaccine is ready for clinical trials.  Other H1N1 vaccine programs covered in the GEN article include those at Medicago, VaxInnate, NanoBio, Vaxart, Pulmatrix, and Purdue University.  Novavax plans to create a virus-like particle-based (VLP) vaccine against the H1N1 strain, which obviates the need for a live virus seed for manufacturing. The VLPs contain the proteins that make the virus’ outer shell and the surface proteins, without the RNA required for replication. props to  http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/152456.php

How could these companies have known?  How much money are they about to make?  How much more money is Obama going seek for a vaccine?  Will the vaccine kill more people than the virus as in the previous Swine Flu scare?

Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius “things could possibly be very different in the fall, especially if things change in the southern hemisphere, and we need to start preparing now in order to be ready for a possible H1N1 immunization campaign starting in late September,” she said.http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2009-06/12/content_11528978.htm .

This year’s seasonal flu shot http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/general/news/feb1309selection-br.html changed one of the three strains used in flu vaccines, keeping the influenza A/H1N1 and A/H3N2 variants used in this year’s vaccine, both of which are labeled Brisbane strains. The influenza B component of this year’s flu vaccine was from the Yamagata lineage.  This was decided in February prior to the H1N1 outbreak; how sure are they months later that this year’s annual flu shot will not do more harm than good or encourage viral mutations?

http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/”>http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/ has the flu surveillance report.

Over at the Virology blog http://www.virology.ws/2009/06/09/influenza-virus-toilet/ the author spotted the words ‘Kills Flu Virus’ on a bottle of Clorox toilet bowl cleaner. 

Some idiot is going to drink this to prevent the flu; just like they will stand in line to get a flu shot.

vaccinelogoEvery Child By Two (ECBT) was founded by Rosalynn Carter and Betty Bumpers in 1991 as a result of the Measles epidemic that killed over 120 people, many of them children. http://www.ecbt.org/ An epidemic that killed 120? My have times changed.  36,000 people died from the flu in the U.S. last year. 2000 are infected with Swine Flu- H1N1 and it is now deemed a level 5 Pandemic.

http://skepacabra.wordpress.com/2009/05/05/every-child-by-two-takes-their-message-to-congress/ said some deaths could be prevented had children been vaccinated, citing a recent HIB outbreak. Aside from a Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib) vaccine shortage, there was a recall of the vaccine.  http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/shortages/default.htm 

TWENTY FOUR immunizations by the age of 2 are listed on the recommended schedule.  Add three more shots-  One to combat annual seasonal influenza and two targeted at the new swine flu virus and the number grows to  TWENTY SEVEN shots by the age of  two.  It is ludicrous.   http://www.cispimmunize.org/IZSchedule_Childhood.pdf  The immune system can only take so much.  Currently, Merck Vaccines is experiencing a “not available for order” backlog for many of its popular vaccines including the Mumps and Rubella shots at http://www.merck.com/e-business/reports/MVC_Supply_Status.pdf  Why would standard immunization production be lagging?

My tin foil hat’s antennae are twisting-less people are getting vaccinated, yet the supply is exhausted.

A WSJ report says,” Parental doubts about the safety of childhood vaccinations are leading to outbreaks of largely eradicated diseases like measles and whooping cough, doctors warned in a new report http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124165229009493675.html.  “A lot of folks are counterculture-type independent thinkers [who] do not have faith in all the modern medicine-type stuff .” Counterculture?  Perhaps faith in the modern medicine type stuff of vaccines has to do with making an informed decision and about vaccine potential relationships to autism, recalls, efficacy rates, vaccines potentially causing the illness they were designed to prevent, and having guidelines that recommend twenty seven shots. 

The American Pediatrics http://aap.org/advocacy/releases/may09vaccines.htm wants parents to have all the information they need to feel confident in their decision to immunize their children,…supporting  parents in making good health care decisions for their children, and vaccines are critical to our efforts to keep our children out of harm’s way.”  What kind of harm are we inflicting with 27 shots in two years? 

Polio has all been eliminated.  Small pox eradicated, but  I am hardly confident with the vaccine license process and the large number of new vaccines on the horizon. The AAP has developed this information page on Red Book Online to provide current information about the licensure process and AAP recommendations about vaccines. http://aapredbook.aappublications.org/news/vaccstatus.shtml

An August 2008 APA Report  for Influenza Immunization in children http://www.cispimmunize.org/ill/Flu/Influenza%20Recommendations.pdf, and herehttp://aappolicy.aappublications.org/cgi/content/full/pediatrics;122/5/1135  recommends ALL CHILDREN aged six months and older should receive the flu shot.  APA says that there is thimerosal in some forms of the flu vaccine but the benefits of protecting children against the known risks of influenza far outweigh the hypothetical risks associated with the minute amounts of thimerosal in some currently available forms of influenza vaccine.  Because viruses for vaccines are grown in eggs, neither should be administered to anyone with known allergic reactions (ie, hives, angioedema, allergic asthma, and systemic anaphylaxis) to chicken and egg proteins.” 

Science has used eggs for years to grow vaccines but what if the eggs are from Avian Flu or H1N1 viral carriers?  The CDC’s own documentation shows reassortment of viruses in ducks, chickens, and turkeys- all egg layers.   Whether it is reverse genetics or creating a hybrid strain through a re-assortment of genes; vaccine work by tricking the immune system into thinking it has been infected with a virus so that it creates antibodies against it.” says the BBC.  It all sounds well and good until you think of the Legionnaire’s Swine Flu outbreak where the vaccine caused more deaths than the virus itself. Remember the Rota Virus vaccine scare that caused painful intestinal twisting?

What else is in a vaccine?  http://www.cispimmunize.org/pro/pdf/Vaccineingredients.pdf. Weakened live viruses,inactivated viruses, partial viruses, partial bacteria, preservatives, adjutants, additives, formaldehyde, antibiotics,….

The World Health Organization (WHO) will convene a group of experts May 14 to advise the agency on whether to pull the trigger on production of a vaccine for the novel H1N1 swine influenza virus.  http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/swineflu/news/may0609vaccine.html  The medical industrial complex and the the Obama administration is also talking about a second flu vaccine this year  (a series of two shots) in addition to the normal flu season vaccine. The second set of shots would be aimed against the  Swine Flu A/H1N1.  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/05/05/AR2009050503378.html

Health officials have asked manufacturers to ramp up production of the seasonal vaccine scheduled for roll out this fall to make way for the possible mass production of a swine flu vaccine.  I wonder if  the recent shortages in common vaccines are due to the fact that manufacturers were already gearing up to make the switch to producing a H1N1 vaccine that they knew in advance would be a threat. “If they are asked to stop doing that it means there will be shortages of the normal (flu) seasonal vaccine and vulnerable people could be susceptible if there was an epidemic of ordinary flu this winter” says http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8029917.stm 

The top 20 drug corporations and the industry’s two trade groups, PhRMA and the Biotechnology Industry Organization, which represents biomedicine companies must be frantic with their lobbying to encourage federal funding and authorization for the Swine Flu Shot.  I can see the education campaign now with commercials placed right in the middle of Anderson Cooper CNN’s report or an emergency broadcast alert in the middle of announcing the Idol winner.  How’s that for government propaganda?

Smallpox is the only human infectious disease to have been completely eradicated yet, “This press release at MSNBC discusses the intent of SIGA Technologies to respond to a recent U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) RFP for treatment courses for people infected with smallpox. This is the latest in a series of contracts related to preparations for outbreaks of diseases either due to biological attack or pandemics. In January the U.S. government teamed with Novartis to begin construction of a factory to produce flu vaccines in vast quantities. For almost twenty years the U.S. military has been buying and issuing anthrax vaccines and Emergent Biosolutions that produces that for them and other government agencies. SIGA states that the RFP calls for HHS to buy 1.7 million courses of antivirals with the possibility of up to 12 million being procured.” http://industry.bnet.com/government/1000812/us-government-to-stockpile-smallpox-antivirals/

The greater challenge will be tracking any adverse reactions as millions of Americans get multiple vaccinations in a matter of months this fall and winter. “There will be adverse effects to any vaccine. That’s just science,” said Michael Hattwick, who ran the CDC’s vaccine-tracking system during the last swine flu scare.  Clinically significant adverse events that follow immunization should be reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). Guidance about how to obtain and complete a VAERS form is available at http://www.vaers.hhs.gov or by telephone, 800-822-7967.

I’ d rather take my chance with the flu than the flu shot.

Swine Flu, H1N1 cases seem to be on the decline.  Health Agencies from WHO, CDC,HHS are still keeping a watchful eye.  Tamiflu is getting restocked for availability as manufacturers like Roche are going into overdrive for antiviral production.

In an absolute aberration, Baxter Pharmaceutical  http://www.baxter.com/ has been chosen by WHO to lead the efforts in finding a vaccine cure for H1N1.  Never heard of Baxter?  With little more than a slap on the wrist, Baxter sent vaccines contaminated with deadly live H5N1 avian flu virus to 18 countries before someone caught the mistake and the vaccine got injected thousands of people.  

Baxter just missed creating its own pandemic by mixing  deadly H5N1 virus with a mix of H3N2 seasonal flu viruses, or did they?  By possibly creating the pandemic, maybe Baxter already has the cure and that is why WHO has deemed them the appropriate pharmaceutical company to lead the way for a swine flu vaccine.

Just imagine the billions in profit to develop a cure for a swine-avian-human mixed flu virus, especially if Baxter’s own research and development teams may have developed the mutated strain in it’s own labs in the first place.

I doubt Baxter is the outlet for population control or reduction, just capitalizing on it’s own inventions.  Sick people are an asset whether they come from Mexico or the four corners of the world.  If they are all dead, how do they make money? 

One thought from http://www.naturalnews.com/026141.html  notes,” it is astonishing to realize, because for this to have been a natural combination of viral fragments, it means an infected bird from North America  would have had to infect pigs in Europe, then be re-infected by those some pigs with an unlikely cross-species mutation that allowed the bird to carry it again, then that bird would have had to fly to Asia and infected pigs there, and those Asian pigs then mutated the virus once again (while preserving the European swine and bird  elements) to become human transmittable, and then a human would have had to catch that virus from the Asian pigs — in Mexico! — and spread it to others in order to assist the World Health Organization in developing a new vaccine, reaping billions in the process. ” 

Baxter was also responsible for the mislabeled, recalled doses of Heparin.  Baxter recalled one lot of a product that hospitals use to treat burn victims and patients in shock after a test found a rare form of HIV in the plasma used to make the product.  HIV-2 in a plasma!   http://www.aegis.org/news/ct/2001/CT010716.html. Baxter also manufactures  a vaccine against tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) and a vaccine against group C meningococcal meningitis.  http://www.baxtervaccines.com/?node_id=312 , in addition to other pharmaceutical products, anesthetic’s, pumps, etc.   http://www.ecomm.baxter.com/ecatalog/browseCatalog.do?lid=10001&cid=10016

Just 50 miles from the H1N1 ground zero outbreak in Mexico City, lies Baxter’s manufacturing plant in Cuernavaca, Mexico.  It was named one of the 10 Best Plants in North America for 2008 by Industry Week magazine.  http://www.baxter.com/about_baxter/news_room/news_releases/2008/12_19_08_industryweek.html  The plant manufactures, “Water For Injection, Devices Medical, Premixes Formulations,” according to  http://www.alibaba.com/member/juanbaxter/aboutus.html.  What else do they manufacture there?  What kind of water gets injected?  Germ Warfare? Bio Hazards? Virus Mutations? Vaccines? Cures or Causes?

The National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) has a satellite campus located in Cuernavaca, which is aimed at research and graduate studies. It also has an undergraduate program in genomics.  Cuernavaca is the home of the following research centers: Center for Genomic Sciences (UNAM),[3] the Institute of Biotechnology (UNAM),[4] the Institute of Physical Sciences (UNAM),[5] the Center for research in Energy (UNAM), the Institute of Mathematics (UNAM), the Center for Research in Engineering and Applied Sciences (UAEM),[6] and the National Institute of Public Health. Cuernavaca has the highest concentration of scientists and researchers in Latin America. -WIKI http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuernavaca  Cuernavaca is certainly a who’s who in genetics and research.

Certainly someone or some government knows how to engineer and unleash such deadly viruses, but the implication is horrendous. Equally horrific is that Americans could be subject to compulsory vaccinations and possible detention thanks to Patriot Act I, Patriot II, BARDA, BioShield I, BioShield II,  BARDA, Federal or State Emergency Medical Powers Acts, FEMA, and the most recent announcement of a Health Emergency from DHS and a level 5 pandemic level designation from WHO.

eye_chiwawa_by_pinkertonfx

Updated flu reports and posts at  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/ah1n1-swine-flu-report/

Eye-chiwawa, a  strain of flu never seen before has killed up to 60 people in Mexico and 8 in the United States.   Reuters reports that the CDC analysis showed the disease is a mixture of swine, human and avian viruses.  Mexico’s health minister, José Ángel Córdova, said the virus had mutated from pigs and had at some point been transmitted to humans.  At least, he’s pretty sure.

A Mixture?  H5N1 does not’t easily infect people, H3N2 viruses do. If someone exposed to a mixture of the two had been simultaneously infected with both strains, he or she could have served as an incubator for a hazardous mixed virus able to transmit easily to and among people.   That mixing process, called reassortment, is one of two ways pandemic viruses are created and it looks like Mexico City is ground zero for it’s spread. 

In February 2009, American pharmaceutical company Baxter made a mistake of catastrophic proportions.  Baxter manufactured and sent The Austrian firm, Avir Green Hills bird flu vaccines that were found to contain a mix of H3N2 seasonal flu viruses and unlabeled H5N1-otherwise known as the human form of Avian Flu. 

Avian Flu is one of the most deadly biological weapons on earth with a 60% kill rate.  Avir Green Hills sent the vaccines on to labs in the Czech Republic, Germany, and Slovenia.  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/03/11/vaccine-drug-deadly-costs-mistakes-threaten-pandemic/   The contamination was realized in the Czech Republic where they inoculated ferrets with the product and they died unexpectedly from exposure to human H3N2 flu viruses.  Imagine if they had inoculated infants or an entire population rather than ferrets?  Imagine if a terrorist got a hold of this? 

Bloomberg News is reporting The World Health Organization in Geneva will declare the outbreak “a public health event of international concern” noting that it may raise the level of pandemic alert, which could lead to travel restrictions aimed at curbing the disease’s spread. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601085&sid=atHtXtCigRII&refer=europe 

WHO has the world presently in phase 3: a new influenza virus subtype is causing disease in humans, but is not yet spreading efficiently and sustainable among humans.  “In my mind, what we’re talking about is moving from a pandemic alert 3 to a pandemic alert probably 5,” said Michael Gardam, director of infectious diseases prevention and control at the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion. Level 5 indicates a new strain with significant human-to-human transmission. Level 6 is a pandemic. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/LAC.20090425.ILLNESS25ART2116/TPStory/National

Whatever threat level is assigned, and whomever raises the alert could result in border closures, travel and trade restrictions.  Mexico City is already in lockdown mode with schools, museums and libraries closed and soccer games being played to empty seats.  How far the lockdown goes is anyones guess.  I wonder what FEMA Zones may be impacted?  Craig Fugate, President Obama’s nominee to head FEMA, sailed through his confirmation hearing last week before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. Welcome to your new job, dude.  

WHO estimates between 250,000 and 500,000 deaths annually from the seasonal flu strains H3N2, H1N1 and type B.  Experted from the NYTimes- Seasonal flus cause most of their deaths among infants, elderly people and the infirmed, but “pandemic flus — like the 1918 Spanish flu, and the 1957 and 1968 pandemics — often strike young, healthy people the hardest.  The leading theory on why so many young, healthy people die in pandemics is the “cytokine storm,” in which vigorous immune systems pour out antibodies to attack the new virus. That can inflame lung cells until they leak fluid, which can overwhelm the lungs. Despite the alarm in recent years over the H5N1 avian flu, which is still circulating in China, Indonesia, Egypt and elsewhere, some flu experts argued that it would never cause a pandemic, because no H5 strain ever had. All previous pandemics have been caused by H1s, H2s or H3s.  http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/25/world/americas/25mexico.html?_r=1&ref=world

There are no estimates for this most recent outbreak and there is no cure, only treatment and prevention. 

Currently there are four different antiviral drugs that are licensed for use in the US for the treatment of influenza: amantadine, rimantadine, oseltamivir and zanamivir. None of these antiviral medications exist in large quantities! http://www.globalsecurity.org/security/ops/hsc-scen-3_flu-pandemic-medicine.htm.

The CDC is running its own investigation here http://www.cdc.gov/swineflu/investigation.htm, most creatively saying wash your hands and that there is no vaccine available at this time.  Eye-chiwawa, indeed.

Correction- Damn it anyway, I hate it when I am wrong but glad that there weren’t 8 people who died in the US- rather 8 were identified as sick with the virus.

The multi billion merger pending from pharmaceutical companies Merck with a $41.1 billion purchase of Schering-Plough Corp. probably won’t be the last big drug-industry merger.  The amount of money is staggering and the lack of regulation apparent.

The deal, which comes on the heels of Pfizer Inc.’s $68 billion bid for Wyeth in January and Roche Holding AG’s $45.7 billion offer for U.S. partner Genentech Inc. last week, will spur other drug makers fearful of falling behind into action…Sanofi-Aventis SA may next target Bristol-Myers Squibb Co., which sells the French company’s Plavix blood-thinner and the Avapro hypertension treatment in the U.S. Alternatively, Bristol- Myers may be a potential merger partner for U.K. diabetes drug partner AstraZeneca Plc.  Johnson & Johnson may make a counter bid for Schering-Plough.  http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=a.JuaqqzcDMY&refer=home

There is money to be made and lives to be saved, but human drug testing in the highest expense to bringing new drugs to market.  Many trade their bodies for the cash drug trial offers. More than 800 drug tests are taking place in India alone.  The FDA has only checked into 8 of them according to a special report http://www.tampabay.com/specials/2008/reports/india/ .

For every 5000 drugs tested in the lab, only 5 will make it to clinical trials and only 1 will pass and make it to the shelves.  It is expensive and America bears the brunt tangible costs with big pharma passing along the costs to her citizens with our disastrous medical system that by some accounts, is still the best in the world.  

In New Zealand, the use of human subjects including children as young as 6 years old, in trials of a novel GE {Genetically Engineered} food is being condemned by scientists internationally and by GE Free NZ (in food and environment).  GE ‘golden rice’ has been promoted as a solution to malnutrition, despite other readily-available sources of vitamin A.  Deficiencies of the vitamin are a cause of blindness among the poor.

“‘Pharming’ will blur the distinction between food and chemicals, disrupting our brand image far more significantly than the recent melamine contamination in milk powder in China.  Allowing human feeding trials of this experimental rice is highly concerning and  a frightening breach of human rights,” says Jon Carapiet from GE-Free New Zealand.  http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/WO0902/S00328.htm

No where in mainstream media, is this report out about American pharmaceutical company Baxter- sending to Chech Republic, Slovenia and Germany bird flu vaccines that were found to contain actual deadly flu virus instead of the vaccine!  Baxter flu vaccines contaminated with H5N1 – otherwise known as the human form of avian flu, one of the most deadly biological weapons on earth with a 60% kill rate – were received by labs in the Czech Republic, Germany, and Sloveniahttp://www.torontosun.com/news/canada/2009/02/27/8560781.html
 
Of course, Baxter invoked trade secrets and refused to reveal how the vaccines were contaminated with H5N1, finally admitting that pure H5N1 batches were sent by accident.  On Friday {March 6, 2009}, the company’s director of global bioscience communications confirmed what scientists have suspected. “It was live,” Christopher Bona said in an email.   The contaminated product, which Baxter calls “experimental virus material,” was made at the Orth-Donau  research facility. Baxter makes its flu vaccine — including a human H5N1 vaccine for which a license is expected shortly — at a facility in the Czech Republic. 

People familiar with biosecurity rules are dismayed by evidence that human H3N2 and avian H5N1 viruses somehow co-mingled in the Orth-Donau facility. That is a dangerous practice that should not be allowed to happen, a number of experts insisted.   Accidental release of a mixture of live H5N1 and H3N2 viruses could have resulted in dire consequences. Ya think?  Did they send it regular mail or on an airplane with 200 happy people going on vacation?  Was it labeled as hazardous medical so a terrorist could know what to steal?  Mind numbing ignorance.

While H5N1 doesn’t easily infect people, H3N2 viruses do. If someone exposed to a mixture of the two had been simultaneously infected with both strains, he or she could have served as an incubator for a hazardous mixed virus able to transmit easily to and among people.   That mixing process, called reassortment, is one of two ways pandemic viruses are created. 
 
“This was seemingly an attempt to quickly change the story and hide the fact that the accidental contamination of a vaccine with a deadly biological agent like avian flu is virtually impossible and the only way it could have happened was by willful gross criminal negligence,” said Dr. Orly Taitz at http://defendourfreedoms.us/2009/03/10/meeting-with-scalia-and-coordinated-cyber-attack.aspx

The contamination incident came to light when the subcontractor in the Czech Republic inoculated ferrets with the product and they died. Ferrets shouldn’t die from exposure to human H3N2 flu viruses.  Imagine if they had inoculated infants rather than ferrets.

Baxter International Inc.(NYSE: BAX)  “develops, manufactures and markets products that save and sustain the lives of people with hemophilia, immune disorders, infectious diseases, kidney disease, trauma, and other chronic and acute medical conditions. http://www.baxter.com/  The company has no mention of this mistake of epic proportion on their website.

According to the Baxter site they have two products on the market: a vaccine against tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) and a vaccine against group C meningococcal meningitishttp://www.baxtervaccines.com/?node_id=312 I think we can all agree how happy we are that this “mixing process,” didn’t affect these two vaccines already widely in use. 

According to the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) three virus strains, usually two type A and one type B, are selected each year before flu vaccine production starts. This is done after a careful investigation of the circulating strains and their mutations and they pick and choose the most likely to populate. 

The CDC recommends getting vaccinated now to protect against late-circulating flu viruses and provides state pandemic Web site information at http://www.pandemicflu.gov/whereyoulive/index.html.  From all accounts the last time it was updated for the heavily populated state of New York was in 2006. http://www.health.state.ny.us/diseases/communicable/influenza/pandemic/docs/pandemic_influenza_plan.pdf  Check your state here http://www.pandemicflu.gov/plan/states/stateplans.html.

I wonder if pandemic planning activities include all the FEMA camps and train rides? 

The CDC has a list of the number of vaccines recommended for children and adults from the eradicated Polio to the newly identified diseases like Cervical Cancer who’s prevention for a few of the strains lies in the vaccine Gardasil; which is now mandated by the U.S. Government for all female immigrants.  http://www.cispimmunize.org/ 

The alleged link between thimerosal and autism has spawned numerous investigations, including a fantastic Rolling Stone article by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. that claims that the government was/is engaged in a medical cover-up. http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/story/7395411/deadly_immunity/

“All parents and patients should be informed about the risks and benefits of preventive and therapeutic procedures, including vaccination. In the case of vaccination, federal law mandates this discussion.”  http://www.cispimmunize.org/pro/pdf/RefusaltoVaccinate.pdf Physicians are also mandated to keep records of patients who refuse.  If you refuse to vaccinate your children, will your doctor enforce the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act which gives states the right to literally steal your children for up to 48 hours — the time they have to prove child neglect OR abuse and then vaccinate them?

Does big pharma operate with the morals to prevent mortality? 

Someday, you will die.
