http://berita.liputan6.com/lua...
Hong Kong: A 59-year-old Hong Kong woman was found infected with H5N1 bird flu virus after visiting mainland China last month.  Hong Kong Secretary for Food and Health, York Chow, on Wednesday (17/11) said the woman visited several places including Shanghai, Hangzhou, and Nanjing on Oct. 23.  After that visit, she experienced flu symptoms such as cough and fever on November 2, a day after returning to Hong Kong, and then was treated in Tun Mun Hospital.

Chow estimates, as written by Xinhua news agency, that the contraction of the case took place outside Hong Kong. But he did not rule out the possibility that this was a local case. The government will submit the case to the world health organization and various departments when they hold a conference on 18 November.  In the year 1997 there were H5N1 bird flu outbreaks in Hong Kong that took the lives of six people who died.  In an effort to prevent it, at least 1.5 million birds were killed to prevent the spread of the disease.

Indonesia Chosen for Flu Research
November 24, 2010
http://www.lifescientist.com.a...
Canberra-based biotech Gamma Vaccines reported today that it is ready to start human clinical trials of a universal flu vaccine which it hopes will soon deliver long term protection against multiple pandemic strains with just a few squirts of a nasal spray.  Called GammaFlu, the product was developed using proprietary technology invented by viral immunologists with the Australian National University's (ANU) John Curtin School of Medical Research.  Gamma Vaccines is hoping that GammaFlu would be administered as a one-off dose providing years or decades of protection, in much the same way as people are now immunised against diseases like polio or yellow fever.
A specialist in influenza and avian (bird ) flu, Gamma Vaccines said that it has chosen Indonesia as the site of trial, due to its proximity to Australia, but more importantly its large population, and therefore extreme, vulnerability should a major new flu pandemic occur there.  Money for the development of GammaFlu has come from the federal and ACT governments.

Adelaide Researcher Focuses on Universal Flu Vaccine
November 29, 2010
http://www.physorg.com/wire-ne...
A University of Adelaide researcher is leading a collaboration between Australia and Indonesia on the production of a universal flu vaccine.
"The frequent arising of new influenza strains represents the greatest challenge to health authorities as it renders currently available vaccines ineffective," says Dr Mohammed Alsharifi, the Head of the Vaccine Research Group at the School of Molecular and Biomedical Science, University of Adelaide.

"While annual vaccine reformulation appears to be effective against closely matched strains of influenza, the current method is not effective against drifted strains as well as new pandemic strains, as illustrated by the recent H1N1 pandemic. This raises the need for a new technology," he says.

Dr Alsharifi says the recent experience of swine flu and the continuing fears of the medical, scientific and world health communities of the sudden emergence of a deadly bird flu strain, means that a new approach to flu vaccines needs to be contemplated.

"What we need is some protection against all influenza virus A strains, including any emergent pandemic virus," he says.

A new technology, invented by Dr Alsharifi (University of Adelaide) and Professor Arno Müllbacher (Australian National University), has helped to generate a new influenza vaccine - GammaFlu™ - that provides cross-protection against current influenza viruses as well as any other unknown strains that may arise in the future.

"Our technology is expected to change the world of vaccination, as it can be implemented to produce many other vaccines," Dr Alsharifi says.

To translate their basic scientific discoveries into clinical application, both scientists established the company Gamma Vaccines Pty Ltd in July 2009. Gamma Vaccines is now commercializing its gamma-irradiated influenza vaccine to capture part of the global market for flu vaccines, which is estimated at US$4 billion annually.  Since its establishment, the company has devised a significant Global Health Initiative as part of its commercialization plans, aimed at making its technology available to developing countries.

"As our near neighbors, with a population of over 240 million, Indonesia represents an exciting opportunity to take this technology from the laboratory to the people," Dr Alsharifi says.

Gamma Vaccines has now signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Indonesian pharmaceutical companies PT Bio Farma and PT Soho Industri Pharmasi, establishing a three-way collaboration that will see the development, manufacturing, clinical trials and distribution of the vaccine in Indonesia and other ASEAN countries.
As part of the collaboration, a team of scientists from PT Bio Farma (the Indonesian State-owned vaccine manufacturer) will be trained in various aspects of the new technology, including production, safety and quality control. This training will be held in the Vaccine Research Laboratory at the University of Adelaide.  Gamma Vaccines was established in 2009 by Dr Mohammed Alsharifi and Professor Arno Müllbacher to solve one of the great challenges ininfectious diseases - the development of a 'universal' cross-protective influenza virus vaccine.
PT Bio Farma is one of the largest vaccine companies in the ASEAN region, with a 120-year history of producing sera and vaccines. Founded in 1890 in Jakarta, Indonesia, Bio Farma is now headquartered in Bandung in Western Java. It is a founding member of the Developing Country Vaccine Manufacturers Network and is a supplier of vaccines to UN agencies and the global market.  Since it was established, Bio Farma has produced an extensive range of vaccines, including small pox, rabies, cholera, typhoid, polyvalent bacterial vaccine and snake venom anti-serum. Polio and measles vaccine production was established at Bio Farma in 1992.  By the year 2000, Bio Farma had begun exporting vaccines. At this time the World Health Organization appointed Bio Farma as one of the Global Training Network sites with respect to Quality Assurance of Live Attenuated Polio and Measles Vaccines.  In 2004, Bio Farma commenced production of the combo vaccine of DTP-Hepatitis B vaccine.
PT Soho Industri Pharmasi is a part of The Soho Group based in Jakarta, and is one of Indonesia's fastest growing pharmaceutical companies. It comprises a significant marketing and distribution business, PT Parit Padang Global, which operates across 25 branches throughout Indonesia. It has more than 5000 employees, plus distribution and marketing of SOHO products in selected ASEAN countries, Africa and Latin America.  The SOHO Group's two pharmaceutical divisions, PT Ehica Industri Farmasi and PT Soho Industri Pharmasi, manufacture Australian Pharmaceutical Industries (API) medicines and healthcare and herbal products.  The first company in SOHO Group, Ethica, was founded in 1946. In the past five years, Soho Group has been the stand out pharmaceutical company in Indonesia - its market growth more than doubling. PT Soho Industri Pharmasi is an equity investor in Gamma Vaccines.

Earlier a result of embarkation Surabaya pilgrims also died of similar causes. One person pilgrims still being treated in hospital because of suspected Al Wadi Mina swine flu.

Revelation Explained, pilgrims many are asking why a high-risk conditions is not anticipated from the beginning when pilgrims before departure from the homeland. It would be nice if the government also adopted a policy of every pilgrim who will travel to the holy land should get the influenza immunization, as required for immunization miningitis. The costs required for implementation and procurement of vaccines derived from BPIH paid every pilgrim. The condition of the field is when the pilgrims miningitis immunized every pilgrims offered personally or by whispering in the Public Health Service officer to injected influenza immunization by paying a fee of Rp160.000.

With this offering, it is clear that health workers understand very well that the pilgrims are high-risk groups infected with swine flu or bird flu. But because there is no official policy of the government regarding the provision of this immunized at the health department officials will offer it personal. The problem is not every pilgrim has the awareness of the importance of getting influenza immunization, so that many are not willing to pay extra to get the vaccination .**

He said various poultry diseases usually also active in the transition time between rainy to hot season

"In the transition season, the type of flue usually attacks poultry of chicken type is the Newcastle Discase (ND) or better known avian influenza or AI" he said.

He said that vigilance is important because every year in the transition season, hundreds of chickens in Pangkalpinang are dead because of virus such as Newcastle disease and avian influenza.

INDONESIA: Avian flu deadliest in the world
http://www.irinnews.org/Report...

Hat tip, Dutchy:

INDONESIA: Avian flu deadliest in the world

BANGKOK, 16 December 2010 (IRIN) - The number of deaths from avian flu in Indonesia is the highest worldwide, due to a slow response rate and surveillance challenges, say specialists.

"At 83 percent, Indonesia has the world's highest fatality rate from avian flu," Brenda Langdon, pandemic influenza adviser in the office of the UN Resident Coordinator in Jakarta, told IRIN.

With the recorded infection of a 21-year-old female in Bandung city in west Java on 9 December, the number of people with the virus in Indonesia has risen to 171 since 2003, of whom 141 have died.

Avian influenza - also known as bird flu or H5N1 - is a highly contagious infectious disease among poultry and other birds.

The virus is transmitted from farm to farm by the movement of birds and people (with contaminated shoes or clothing), and from birds to unsuspecting people who touch them, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Since it was first detected in central Java in 2003, the disease has spread to 31 out of 33 provinces nationwide, caused more than US$500 million in economic losses and disrupted the livelihoods of more than 10 million people who rely on poultry, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

The likelihood of dying from bird flu in Indonesia is nearly three times higher than in Egypt, which had the highest number of recorded bird flu cases this year but a fatality rate of only 32 percent, Langdon noted.

Slow response

With no human vaccine available, intensive medical attention (Tamiflu is the main anti-viral treatment) is required within the first 24 to 48 hours of reported symptoms. However, many patients wait too long before seeking medical attention.

"Jamu [traditional medicine] is still a strong tradition here so people try that before going to the clinic," Langdon said. "But there are also financial constraints, given the administrative and transportation fees that patients have to pay to access healthcare here."

Surveillance challenges

Indonesia spans almost 4,000km from Jakarta in the west to Jayapura (capital of Papua Province) in the far northeast, almost the same distance as London to Baghdad.

The size and geography of Indonesia - 17,000 islands host 250 million people, the world's fourth most populous country - make virus surveillance particularly difficult.

"It could be that milder cases simply aren't being detected due to the size and decentralization of the country, so only the really serious cases are being noticed," said Langdon.

With a small number of human infections but a high fatality rate, more effort needs to go into preventing H5N1 from spreading in animals rather than only focusing on treatment when it reaches humans, according to the WHO office in Jakarta.

Sub-Types of Avian Influenza

http://fluburung.org/sub-tipe-...

Today is the first time I have seen this site in the search. This is not a newspaper, but it doesn't seem to be any kind of commercial site either. I really didn't know whether to post this article or not. I can't seem to find who the author is, or the individual or organization that backs this site. There was another article below this one that was posted on Dec. 11, that said that human to human transmission, though rare, has happened.

Sub-Types of Avian Influenza
December 28, 2010 - 10:00 am

When an outbreak of bird flu outbreak, mass panic occurs. Low level of knowledge of the mass of this type of flu to make many people react to extreme. Without thinking, hundreds of thousands of poultry were destroyed, regardless of whether or not that step. It is better we know the various sub-types of bird flu. There are many sub-type of flu but only a few that are very patogenic on humans.

There are many sub-types of flu viruses.

  1. Type H1N1. Sub type is more commonly found in pigs as the main vector. Later, this type of virus known as the cause of swine flu. Unlike the causes of avian flu, this sub-type was more effective transmitted via human. In every sneeze swine flu patients, at least 100,000 contained the H1N1 virus. Fortunately, killing power only twelfth of H1N1 bird flu. Swine flu only have the possibility of a fatal by 6 percent, far below the 80 percent milli bird flu.
  2. Sub-type H1N2 is next. Sub-type is a subtype of influenza A virus, also called bird flu virus. By experts, the virus is expressed as a viral pandemic in humans and animals, especially pigs.
  3. H2N2 is a sub type of another. This H2N2 virus has mutated into so many variations of this flu virus. One form is a mutation of the H2N2 subtype H3N2 and many other flu viruses that are often found in poultry. This model virus suspected of causing a pandemic in humans in 1889.
  4. The next sub-type H2N3. Based on the structure of the composition, the H2N3 composed of proteins as "casing" her, hemagglutinin (H) and neuraminidase (N). In general, this virus can infect humans and poultry.
  5. The next sub-type avian influenza virus sub-type of the most dangerous. Known as the main cause of avian flu. H5N1 is a virus that is very dangerous. Based on the research of experts, patients infected with the H5N1 virus has only the possibility of recovering less than 20 percent. Although it is only transmitted through poultry, H5N1 is an effective killer. Power kill him 12 times more powerful than the avian influenza virus sub-type to another. This virus is a type of virus that is epizootik or character of the epidemic to groups outside of man and nature panzootik also capable of affecting various animal species. The results stated that this virus has been "successful" kill at least 10 million birds worldwide and infects hundreds of millions of others. In December of 2009, the UN health agency, WHO announced that there were at least 447 cases of flu that occurs in humans and death rates are very high in this period, more than 50 percent to the death toll reached 267 people.
  6. Another sub-type that is considered pathogenic for humans are H7N3, H7N7 and H9N2. The three types are considered as the avian influenza virus that has damaged the residence until can kill infected. According to the latest update from the FAO, these viruses are slowly but surely strengthen their destructive capability. For the H7N7 virus itself can infect humans, birds, pigs, seals and horses. In laboratory tests, this virus could be used Dalan mengifeksi rat experiments. H9N2 virus is a type of virus that infects ducks. In its development, this virus also infects humans. In December 2009, found cases of children infected with H9N2 in Hong Kong.

Now they are saying that this milk formula is supposed to actually give passive protection against bird flu and two kinds of diarrhea??? I can't imagine how they would test it in humans.

Milk from Bogor Anti Bird Flu
Integrating milk and eggs, Rahmat Hidayat find milk anti-diarrhea and bird flu.

Friday, December 31, 2010, 21:07 GMT
Renne R.A Kawilarang
Rahmat Hidayat, dairy maker of anti-bird flu (Ayatollah Humaeni (VIVAnews))

VIVAnews - In the past year, there is unusual activity in lab Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the Institut Pertanian Bogor (IPB). Together with his team, Rahmat Hidayat wrestle a very useful research for children and the elderly. Researchers are concocting a new formula milk ingredients.

Milk formula that would be an antidote to diarrhea, as well as anti-bird flu, two types of diseases that continue to haunt the people of Indonesia. Within a year, Grace managed to find the yellow egg yolk immunoglobulin, which did not change the taste, color and smell of milk. "Formula that could prevent two types of diarrhea that is caused by bacteria Escherichia coli and Salmonella enteritidis," said Rahmat, to VIVAnews in Bogor, Thursday, December 23, 2010.

For Grace, milk and eggs are the two principal elements of his research. Aside from being a source of animal protein is very beneficial for endurance, milk and eggs can be a powerful combination that ward off disease makes many people anxious, that is bird flu and diarrhea.

"The disease of bird flu still a threat in many countries, including Indonesia. Diarrhea was frequently attacked people in this country," said Grace in her office conversation. Men born in North Sumatra 31 years ago it was a lecturer at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (FKH) IPB, with specialization in Animal Diseases and Medical Microbiology.

Since 2009, Grace led the team of the FKH-IPB for researching the formula of anti-bird flu and anti-diarrhea. Their results in the first year, said Rahman is producing yolk immunoglobulin (Ig Y) anti-bird flu, and anti-diarrhea are made in the three arts, namely spray dry yolk, dry yolk freezer, and pure extracts.

Y Ig production begins with the treatment in the form of laying hens vaccinated four times over four weeks. "The vaccine used in the form of H5N1 in the first and third week, while Escherichia coli and Salmonella enteritidis are used every week," said Rahmat.

Furthermore, serum and egg yolk were collected and checked for the presence of anti-Ig Y third agent since the first week after the last vaccination. Inspection method for E coli and S. enteritidis is For Presipitation Gel Test (AGPT) whereas H5N1 Haemegglutination inhibition method (HI).

"We believe that milk formulas have been tested, and detected to prevent bird flu and diarrhea (E coli and S. enteritidis). So a kind of passive immunization vaccines or vaccines, "said Rahmat.

This discovery is the latest, and no researcher in Indonesia managed to find a formula of anti-bird flu as well as anti-diarrhea. "This formula is useful to face three types of bacteria, namely H5N1, Escherichia coli, and Salmonella enteritidis, causes frequent diarrhea," said Rahmat.

Rahmat Hidayat with immunoglobulin Y anti-bird flu and anti-diarrhea mixed into milk

According to Grace, the formula team's findings were not only intended for children. Elderly Man [seniors] can feel the benefits of formula milk concoction. As the condition of children, their immune system is weak classified, so vulnerable to germs.

"So the findings of this formula, it is very useful for children - children and seniors," said Rahmat. Through his research, Grace wanted to encourage people of Indonesia recognize the importance of drinking milk. "During this time the people of Indonesia are still very low to consume milk compared with other countries," said Rahmat.

***
However, research Rahmat not without a hitch. Obstacles he and his team faced was to find a suitable chicken for research purposes, with a sufficient amount as biological factories to produce Ig Y. In the production of chicken Ig Y could have produced different, because the chicken research materials different from each other. "So, we are very hard to find chickens that are not different," said Rahmat.

In addition, the ability of research results depends on the variant of bird flu that is used to produce Ig Y. For now the new Grace examines the H5N1 variant of bird flu. However, research on other variants of bird flu, like H5N2, H7N2, H7N3, H5, and H7 also very possible. "Scientifically speaking, all the [variants] very possible, but still needs further research," said Rahmat.

He added, Ig Y was tested on rats, which is a mammalian creatures, just like humans. However, he said, in 2011 it will try to prove these findings fit on humans.

"Hopefully in 2011, we will use human volunteers to test a new formula," said the husband of Arum Kusniladewi it.

Despite the obstacles met, Grace is determined his team of research results can be applied in the production of milk powder in 2011. After that, Grace will develop a formula for liquid milk production, which has consumed many children.

"We will formulate the kids milk sold per box and sachets. Because, children prefer formula milk in liquid form that is ready to drink, "said Rahmat.

He hopes that, following research that supported the private sector. "Until now, other interested parties is merely verbal, and indeed research continues. So, for now not the time used commercially to the general public. We still have to test further, "said Rahmat.

http://birdflucorner.wordpress...

Posted by Ida on January 7, 2011

Surabaya - Officials isolated a bird flu endemic area, Jalan Genting Tambak Dalam, Kecamatan Asemrowo, one of sub-districts in Surabaya, East Java. All birds are kept in cage and monitored during the isolation period.

A spokesman of Participatory Disease Surveillance and Response (PDSR) of Livestock Service in Surabaya, Gagat Rahino, said they will not burn the cages and surviving chickens.

"We'll watch the isolated area for 2 weeks and spray disinfectant for 2-3 times for each week. Then, we'll evaluate the condition after that," Gagat said.

This procedure is enough to reduce the risk of virus transmission to human, said a bird flu researcher Dr CA Nidom.

"Stamping out is not necessary yet. It is useless to do stamping out in only one or two points without clearing the surrounding area," Nidom said. Bird flu virus can easily spread through air, where it can travel up to 1 kilometer from the source of disease, he added.

Previously, 76 chickens reared by locals suddenly died of bird flu in Genting Tambak Dalam RT 06/RW 03.

A total of 6 (six) persons and children under five die from this disease with symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath. This information was obtained from local residents who seek health care Tompobulu a few days ago.

Very sorry I just received this information Maros District Health today (January 10, 2011) that should events that could cause unrest citizens should be reported no later than 24 hours since the show cases in the community by the local health clinic. Reporting centers should do the response as soon as possible to the District Health Office. At the very least, the district can do if the information counter unrest arise due to information sources that are not clear.

Positive values, while receiving the initial information, the same day Tompobulu surveillance centers in the area investigating the case and conduct response governance and public health cases. People with strep throat just found immediately treated and declared cured today. But should all patients before the drug was given in advance or specimens taken directly referred to the Hospital for enforcement of diagnosis.

From the early diagnosis of disease, most likely the victim suffering from pneumonia, or pertussis, or diphtheria, or bird flu. But since there was no contact with poultry, bird flu option removed. Meanwhile, laboratory tests is difficult because in addition to all the patients have been cured, laboratory facilities in health centers Tompobulu still far from adequate standard.

From my small note about the algorithm diagnosis of disease, characteristics of each disease and reference checks among others:

Pneumonia :

At age <5 years was marked by cough and signs of difficulty breathing (a rapid breathing, sometimes accompanied by the pull of the chest wall).

• <2 months: 60/menit

• 2-12 months: 50/menit

• 1-5 years: 40/menit And sometimes accompanied by fever.

At the age of 5 years is characterized by fever> 38 ° C, cough and difficulty breathing, and chest pain when breathing

Reference checks: Chest X-rays

Pertussis :

Cough more than 2 weeks with a cough accompanied by a typical (continuous / paroxysmal), breath with a "whoop" and sometimes vomiting after coughing

Reference checks: Chest X-rays

Diphtheria :

Hot> 38 ° C, pain in swallowing, shortness of breath accompanied by the sound (stridor) and there are signs of grayish-white membrane (pseudomembrane) in the throat and neck glands enlargement.

Reference checks: Wipe nasopharynx

Suspected Bird Flu :

Hot> 38 ° C, and no history of contact with sick poultry / sudden death.

Reference checks: Chest X-rays and nasopharynx Smear

Because some of the above constraints, Tompobulu PHC and District Health Office. Maros only can monitor and monitoring the local area and remain alert to the reappearance of this disease laryngitis. And, to the general public for maintaining health, do not underestimate these symptoms of strep throat and to immediately to a health facility for further treatment when there are families who suffer from strep throat.

notes:

That said .... Manurung Bonto village area including the second farthest village in the district Tompobulu after Bonto Somba village. Besides distance, cobblestone streets make this isolated village. I was so distant and rough terrain travel, I never set foot in this village even though I never served in the district Tompobulu for 4 years (hehehe. .. reason). I can only describe this area of the story of friends who never get there. Beautiful panorama and the demands of duty are just a few reasons to get there. I then imagined a car could not go there and ballot boxes during elections held borne by human power.

Select Return Fund USD 4 Billion

Performance Sudin West Jakarta Husbandry and Fisheries is questionable. The main issues drawn-out.namely relocate a number of abattoir (slaughterhouse) illegal chicken and pig slaughter house again failed in fiscal year 2010. Forced, Rp 4 billion fund for such purposes dikebalikan to Local Cash.

Though the relocation plan has been there since three years ago. The main objective is to minimize the risk of disease spreading bird flu (H5N1) and swine influenza A (H1N1). Because the existence of a number of illegal slaughter house in West Jakarta and in the midst of densely populated settlements.

In fact, if localized, then the government will easily control the slaughter of chicken or pork. Even the dangers of H5N1 and H1N1 virus will be easily controlled. Keeping in, the H5N1 virus has claimed five lives in West Jakarta. The government also can control the process of cutting into the chicken any way what is not halal standards.

If governments are serious, of course the issue will quickly handled. But the performance of Livestock and Fisheries Sudin

Jakarta Garat may seem slow. These activities were rarely heard and so there is only a mere formality impressed.

As the findings of chicken meat in the region berformalin Tambora few months ago actually done by the police. While follow-up of Sudin just did not find anything. Ironically, Sudin Husbandry and Fisheries in a number of other areas find similar cases in a sudden inspection (Sidak) traditional markets.

Based on the findings of officers, in West Jakarta area are about 18 RPH chicken pocketed illegal alias does not permit. But strangely, the presence of illegal slaughter house barely touched by the relevant authorities. These conditions had led to speculation that there is a person related officials of deliberately playing behind the existence of RPH.

Kasudin Husbandry and Fisheries, West Jakarta City Government, Kusdiana, unreasonable though it pocketed Fund Budget Activities Unit (DASK) in 2010 amounted to USD 4 Billion but it is difficult to obtain precise location. Kusdiana who claimed to have plans to put the location of the official RPH on lands owned assets in West Jakarta is also difficult to realize.

Location among others targeted at Fish Seed (BBI), Kalideres with total area of 300 meter2 and tens of hectares of land owned by Pertamina in the region Kapok Village. Cengkareng. Kusdiana also claimed to have proposed a chicken slaughter house is centered in the land of Pertamina in Kapok.

However the proposal was rejected by the government of Jakarta, because it is too close plus Kapok pig slaughterhouse. The consideration, it is feared would happen with H1N1 H5N1 virus contamination which would have caused serious problems again. It is said, was to land that BBI is an asset of DKI Jakarta Provincial Government is no problem.

So also on land owned by Pertamina in fact get permission from the relevant parties. Moreover, vacant land is not used as a residence by squatters. But considering its development should require a process of maturation and thoughts to the future, no problems arise then for 2010 the plan was canceled and the money we return, "he said.

Touched apartment plan will materialize this year, Kusdiana menyatajab (NTA) can not be sure. "A clear plan to remain there. But this year could be realized when I do not know," he said, (DNI)
