New H5N1 Viruses How to Balance Risk of Escape with Benefits of ...

[Infection Control Today News Only Feed] This fall, the U.S. National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB) set off a debate when it asked the authors of two recent H5N1 research studies and the scientific journals that planned to publish them to withhold crucial details of the research in the interest of biosecurity. The researchers had taken H5N1, a virus that cannot easily transmit from human to human, and developed strains of the virus that can transmit easily between ferrets, which are a common model for human influenza.

[Prison Planet.com] Some years ago I wondered why they’d dug up graves of victims of the Spanish flu which killed eighteen million after the Great War. It didn’t take me long to realise, if they want weapons-grade organisms, go straight to the graves of those it has killed.

[Chemical & Engineering News: Latest News] According to WHO, an expert panel it convened “reached consensus on two urgent issues related to the newly created H5N1 influenza viruses: extending the temporary moratorium on research with new laboratory-modified H5N1 viruses and recognizing that research on naturally occurring H5N1 influenza virus must continue in order to protect public health.” The statement also says that the panel supports full publication of two research papers on the work, accepted by Nature and Science, “however, there are significant public health concerns surrounding this research that should first be addressed.”

[Delta Farm Press] The subsequent massive depopulation of poultry stopped the human outbreak for a time, but two cases identified in Hong Kong in 2003 confirmed the virus was still circulating in the region and posed a health hazard. From 2003 to 2011, the World Health Organization recorded a total of 566 confirmed human cases for avian influenza worldwide that have resulted in 332 deaths.

Serial passage of H5N1 can create an airborne virus | Monotreme's ...

[Monotreme's Blog] Although the scientists doing this work were interested in modeling natural evolution, it should be noted that they likely created a very dangerous virus in the laboratory. We don’t know how lethal a virus adapted to ferrets would be to humans, but given that we are both mammals and that ferrets accurately model many aspects of human influenza infection, there is a good chance that the virus created is quite dangerous to humans.

[Bird Flu Information Corner] Phylogenic analysis of the NA gene sequence (accession number AB629947) of the sparrow isolate showed that it belongs to the same cluster as the recent Indonesian human isolates that share 97% identity with human isolate A/Indonesia/CDC1032/2007(H5N1). Because genetic information regarding H5N1 viruses in Indonesia is limited, these findings will promote a better understanding of the current situation in this country.
