Breakthrough in fight against super-pneumonia


11:50 24 March 03 news service

Doctors in Hong Kong have developed a simple diagnostic test for the virus responsible for the global outbreak of "super-pneumonia". The test, validated on eight patients so far, was made possible after scientists succeeded in growing the virus in the laboratory.

29, where about is that mentioned?

I've got the test results from the infected from the CDC and they only say that it worked in 3 cases!!

I will get back to you in case i am wrong, the translator on the computer isn't that good and might go and hunt out John who speaks fluent chinese..

All i say though is, if i stand corrected...THANK GOD!!!!!

Its been a busy few days in the labs!!

Sorry 29M,

Half asleep on a 17 hour shift again!!

I kinda meant that i was looking through the New Scientist site looking for any ideas or news about the outbreak that i had missed when i was off hurt. The lab results were in chinese and the CDC hadn't translated them for me so i went onto the site and had a nose around.

You were right, the new tests look promising!

Don't worry about me, i'm just a little mad and the beeping from the HPLC's are killing my ears!

?HPLC's?-what's that?

Also, if you could please, let me know what the outcome of the translation is. Thanks

Hi there..

To your question?

HPLC stands for: High Pressure Liquid Chromatography.

I'm doing a lot of tests and i'm just having to wait until the empty plasma comes up from storage.

I'll try and sneak some info out when i can but it'll be sketchy at best, just a lot of numbers and results but will try and decipher them for you!

Keep and eye on this post and i'll get back to you
