link shows a clinical trial in the UK of Haemagglutinin antigen from three different influenza virus strains 2006-2008.

13th Annual Report

GTAC 123:A prospective randomised double blind placebo controlled study to assess the efficacy of a trivalent DNA influenza vaccine administered by Particle Mediated Epidermal Delivery (PMED) against a controlled influenza virus challenge.
This is a related study to the above. Here, the protocol is designed as a vaccine for human influenza. The influenza virus each winter kills around 4,000 people in the UK and around the world between 500,000 and 1 million. Influenza virus affects mainly the upper respiratory tract (nose, throat and bronchi, rarely the lungs) and lasts about a week. Current circulating viruses are divided into two groups A and B. Subgroup A is divided into a further two main subgroups H3N2 and H1N1. Of all the influenza viruses, H3N2 has the greatest mortality rate. This vaccination approach uses a trivalent influenza vaccine made up of equal amounts of three individual influenza plasmids representing three common annual circulating strains, two from strain A, and one from strain B, as well as a plasmid containing the immunostimulator also used in GTAC 122. As with GTAC 122, the delivery system is Particle Mediated Epidermal Delivery (PMED). Subjects are then admitted to a quarantine facility in order to receive a dose of harmless influenza virus during the “challenge” part of the study. The main objective is to evaluate whether the vaccine is effective at preventing influenza symptoms in comparison to a placebo control group. The protocol was discussed by GTAC in July and received final approval in August

Military says it's prepared if swine flu strikes in Afghanistan

Canada's military says it will be prepared if swine flu strikes soldiers serving in Afghanistan.

Canadian military personnel have put in place testing procedures at the hospital inside the base at Kandahar Airfield.

"Part of our plan is to screen all incoming passengers into the area of responsibility here in Kandahar, so all of the personnel that we have are screened before they arrive," said Lt.-Col. Ron Wojtyk, a Canadian military surgeon and the head physician at the base's NATO hospital.

He said every new arrival is required to fill out a brief questionnaire.

The newcomers are asked if they have a cold, a fever or any muscle aches or pains. They are also asked if they have been to Mexico and if they have come into contact with anyone who has had an influenza-like illness.

"If they say 'Yes' to any of those then they have to see a medical person," Wojtyk said.

In the next few months, 21,000 American soldiers will be deployed in the Kandahar area where they will join more than 1,000 Canadian military personnel.

Around 70,000 foreign soldiers are serving across Afghanistan.

I am checking both of the threads all of the time and they are really bare as of late. I hope all of our fellow ATSers are still paying attention to this.

Hey all, looks like our 'omega' has been buisy as well as others.
I have had a friend in the hospital, so have not had much time. Wont be on long, i gota get some rest, i've had 2 hrs sleep since yesterday, as soon as lil butt passes out (which may be a bit he is still bouncing off the walls, way past nap time) I'm going to crash for a few.

I didnt know you could vaccume pack sceeds, though it would harm them, at least from what i read, taking the moisture out was the best way to preserve them for long term storage, that and cold temps... interesting i have a vaccume packer....

in odd happenings had a dual blade Huie ? ? fly over the house today.. military all the way... real unusual for here.. been here in the same place for over a year and never seen one go by, nor had anyone tell me about them being here... flying low and slow... we do have a military base here, but not air, so could be something to do with that, hard to tell, just found it odd..

I hope people are keeping up with all of this, we have not even seen the tip of what is to come yet. If they are ignoring it, they are in for a big suprise...

Man i'm beat... anyone know a good way to knock a little one out, besides a rock *LOL*....

Hx3_1963...thanks for keeping us up to date! Stars for all that posted info as I was working today!

I am pondering the verbage of the DOD memo, along with wording from The Chest, and then thinking more about the care patients that were cited in the one article that was tracking the flu virus mutation. Maybe those folks work for incubation better than eggs!
