Poultry disease vaccine brings short-term results but long-term problems

"Many vaccines in the animal industry are developed by modifying a virulent live virus," said Professor Mary Poss
However, vaccinated birds can shed the vaccine virus to infect other birds, and live virus vaccines do not always protect birds from infection from other viral strains
Poss and her Penn State colleagues Yee Ling Chong, graduate student in biology; Abinash Padhi, post-doctoral fellow and Peter J. Hudson, Willaman professor of biology found that one vaccine strain recombined -- exchanged genetic material -- with at least three wild strains, creating new viruses. This raises conce

This is a very disturbing article and shows how easy it is for virus to recombine creating deadly strains which may infect humans not only birds. As we have seen with the human Bird Flu.
As Professor Poss states 'the use of live virus vaccines creates a persistent level of the vaccine strains in the global bird population. This raises concerns that modified live virus vaccines may combine with circulating viruses to create unpredictable new strains, vaccine developers need to be aware of the potential for driving virus evolution using modified live viruses and should instead consider using killed or inactivated viruses' "When viruses don't change, it is typically a good thing," Poss explained. "But as soon as they start to change, like the flu, we don't know what the transmission and disease potential are going to be like from one year to another. So driving up viral diversity is not a good thing."

This truly makes sense ,though the agenda of some may think different.

This is particularly worrying considering the new nasal spray vaccine delivery systen used for the Swine Flu and Seasonal Flu, is made from attenuated live virus.

BioDiem has the following projects currently under development:


Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine (LAIV)
LAIV is a novel, intranasal vaccine in development for both pandemic and epidemic influenza, with the advantages of breadth of protection and cell culture manufacture. The vaccine has been licensed to European-based vaccine company Nobilon, where it is being developed for production in the next generation method of cell culture, for registration in Europe and Asia against seasonal flu. A pandemic vaccine against avian H5N1 is being developed at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in collaboration with Nobilon and BioDiem.
