Bacterial disguise evades vaccine


www.bbc.co.uk

Some bacteria can evade efforts to vaccinate against them by wearing a new disguise, researchers say.
A study, published in Nature Genetics, tracked how pneumococcus bacteria responded to the introduction of a vaccine in the US in 2000.
Doctors said the evasion would make some vaccines less successful in the long term.

An updated pneumococcus vaccine is already in use.

Is this a new excuse for the next vaccine?

Dr Bernard Beall, a scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention commented: "The current vaccine strategy of targeting predominant pneumococcal serotypes is extremely effective, however our observations indicate that the organism will continue to adapt to this strategy with some measurable success."

you dont like that....how about this,

BACTERIA that can resist nearly all antibiotics have been found in Antarctic seawater. Björn Olsen of Uppsala University in Sweden and colleagues took seawater samples between 10 and 300 metres away from Chile's Antarctic research stations, Bernardo O'Higgins, Arturo Prat and Fildes Bay. A quarter of the samples of Escherichia coli bacteria carried genes that made an enzyme called ESBL, which can destroy penicillin, cephalosporins and related antibiotics (Applied and Environmental Microbiology, DOI: 10.1128/AEM.07320-11). Bacteria with these genes can be even more dangerous than the better known superbug MRSA

so much for the 2012 end theories and WWIII. One bad cold virus could do in Mankind in what a winter season?

Yeah, I'd appreciate it if they'd quit 'stirring it up' too. From drilling in that hotspring lake (Lake Voltec?) to oil spills worldwide from the bowels of the Earth, to huge aircraft carriers stirring the world's oceans, there's no telling what they'll uncover. Very unnatural practices are messing with nature.

I didn't get to vote my say about any of it.

Everything mutates and evolves. No one needs and "excuse." imho, you are asking the wrong question.

Also imho, the idea of vaccinating is fundamentally flawed.

This may mean that we all may need to be vaccinated again with all the childhood vaccinations every so many years.

that will mean a steady income from milking the already milked out over vaccinated American citizens.

So live and let live in all things? and if just one day? Pretty stiff words. Maybe the will to live isn't just a human form of greed. Are we yet on the same playing field as the "bugs"

Is that why Russia have gone to Antarctica to pick up some of that stuff to start the Depopulation plan?

Bacteria shouldn't be afraid of the antibiotics; antibiotics should be afraid of the bacteria!

Vacciens are used to stimulate the immune system to identify and act against certin bacterial or viral
componets, in this case it's refering to cell wall components, yes the bacteria can evolve to change it's
cell wall but that isn't the main problem vacciens are for the mojority of cases far less dangerious than
the disease they are created to stop, people have forgotten about polio, whoping cough, and a number of
other virulent disease and don't belive that they still exist in human population. this myopic view shows
a lack of undestanding that the causative agents are still there, our bodies still hosting them they just
have less of an effect, becuase of the vaccine so those irresponcible parents who don't vacinate their
children are putting the live of others in danger.
bacterial resitance to anti-biotics is another issue all togeather look up XDR-tuberculosis at the WHO
web site, or drug resistant Staphlococcus aurus for nighmare stuff. over prescribing of anti-biotics
and also people not following the full course of anti-biotics have created these monsters. the majority
of TB is reisistant to at least one anti-biotic in the former USSR their is a high proportion of MDR-TB.
all the bombs we have could be insignificant to the power of extremely virulent pathogens.

We still have immunity to polio and smallpox viruses so to say they all evolve or mutate is questionable or we would have recent outbreaks of these diseases, wouldn't we?

We ARE bugs - a cooperative community of bugs called a super-organism. And the bugs-that-R-us communicate with, interact with, and share DNA with the bugs in our environment. It's supposed to happen.

Vaccines are designed to outright prevent the natural process of cross- and inter-communication. Bad idea. ...Ancient traditional healing methods focus on bringing the body into harmony with itself and the environment - conceptually, much better, more realistic and far more likely to prevent extinction.
