Last quote about Influenza

Peter Collignon
The strain we are predominantly seeing this year is influenza A strain H3N2, and this is the same strain that hit last winter in the UK and other European centres and caused problems there. What they found in those countries was that the vaccine for H3N2 basically didn't work and was zero per cent effective for those over 65. So maybe you could say it was predictable we would see similar issues in Australia this season.feedback

They were vaccinated in October of 2014 and followed through 2014-2015 season, and when they had symptoms of influenza, they were brought back to clinic. The recombinant vaccine is produced in bioreactors – big vats of cells producing protein. We can produce vaccine in roughly three to six weeks after strains are selected, as opposed to six months with conventional vaccine.feedback

Jenny's internal organs had become inflamed from the virus. She had cardiopulmonary failure due to the influenza infection, which caused her heart to become unable to pump blood efficiently, and her lungs could not absorb oxygen. But the kind of perseverance that Jenny has is rare in patients. And I think her drive and sheer determination to survive played a large part in her recovery.feedback

What we need to do is stop paying for antibiotics based on how many times they are prescribed, to discourage use. We don't want colistin used very frequently. In fact we don't want it used at all. What we need to do as a global community is work out how we pay the company not to market colistin and not to promote it and to keep it in reserve. There is an updated data set compared to when the committee evaluated this product last, and what that suggests is that the size of the effect of oseltamivir in the context of pandemic influenza is less than previously thought.feedback

Mike Cockrell

For the first time really since January 2015, when they put the avian influenza ban in place, we're starting to see movement.feedback

Mike Lee

We have a lot of metrics by which we gauge the health of the economy and the health of the government. There are other things that reflect the health of the country in one way or another that aren't as frequently measured and even less frequently discussed by policymakers. We want parents to be able to have more control over their own schedules so that they can be able to spend time with their families however they may choose to. We're only slightly more popular than the influenza virus, which I'm sure is gaining on us. That, I think, should tell us something.feedback

Timothy Shope

Pandemic influenza is different than seasonal influenza. It is a novel virus that can be transmitted from person to person and to which most of the world's population has no immunity. So pandemic influenza preparedness involves everything we normally do for seasonal influenza except immunization, but also relies on child care centers creating plans to identify who would be responsible for notifying them of closure, how to communicate with parents in the event of a closure, and encouraging parents to have alternative care plans.feedback

Joshy Jacob

I tested them one at a time against influenza viruses.feedback

Josh Jacob

It's a natural innate immune mediator that all living organisms maintain. We just happened to find one that the frog makes that just happens to be effective against the H1 influenza type. I was almost knocked off my chair. In the beginning, I thought that when you do drug discovery, you have to go through thousands of drug candidates, even a million, before you get one or two hits.feedback

Keithly Jones

We were hoping to expand our market share, but we came down with mild forms of avian influenza so that squashed that whole idea.feedback

Anne Schuchat

Influenza is the scariest of all bugs. These bird flu strains are beginning to change.feedback

Wenqing Zhang - World Health Organization

Constant change is the nature of all influenza viruses – this makes influenza a persistent and significant threat to public health.feedback

Christian Lindmeier - World Health Organization

This is the first time these changes have been detected. These are the only two cases in Guangdong province, China. So far, there have been no reports if similar changes have occurred elsewhere. It is a reminder that we have to keep looking closely. Most of these cases had known exposure to poultry or its environment, that is the main important link to this influenza type.feedback

Walter Orenstein

All adults should be vaccinated against influenza annually, receive a booster of a tetanus vaccine every 10 years, two different types of pneumococcal vaccine when they turn 65, and a vaccine to prevent shingles when they reach age 60.feedback

Walter Orenstein

All pregnant women should receive influenza vaccine, which protects them and their newborns, as well as a dose of a vaccine that protects their newborns against whooping cough.feedback

Ian Mackay

You've got more exposures, to more farmers, more often, and in greater numbers, in more parts of the world – so there has to be an increased risk of spillover human cases. Influenza is a very tough beast because it changes all the time, so the ones we're tracking may not include one that suddenly emerges and takes hold. Right now, it's hard to say whether we're doing enough [to keep on top of the threat].feedback

Michael Osterholm

This is a fundamental change in the natural history of influenza viruses. What we're learning about H5 is, that whether its H5N6, H5N8, H5N2 or H5N5, this is a very dangerous bird virus.feedback

Monique Eloit - World Organisation for Animal Health

Bearing in mind that particularly in Asia there are always different viruses bubbling up -- no region is really safe from fresh contamination, particularly from migrating wild birds. In Asia you have an almost permanent situation of influenza cases. In Europe, and particularly in western Europe, it's a situation that's particular to this year. Historically H5N8 has never been referenced as posing a potential risk to man.feedback

Tom Frieden - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

As a general rule, influenza is what concerns us most. We are always concerned about the possibility of re-assortment between animal flu and human flu so, this is something that we have been watching very closely. The Health Department contacted more than 80 percent of the people who adopted cats from the Manhattan shelter, and none is suspected of having H7N2.feedback

Chung Min

Economic losses caused by (avian influenza) is estimated to cost up to 1.4 trillion won (US$1.17 billion) if 30 percent of Korea's poultry population gets infected.feedback

Loic Evain

We've seen that there have been cases of wild birds contaminating domestic poultry. It's a risk that we clearly can't rule out. That's why it's very important all the farmers' protection measures are taken to avoid the transfer of the virus from the wild to our livestock.feedback

Michael Worobey

It is an extra barrier that is probably protecting us from even more frequent influenza pandemics.feedback

James Lloyd-Smith

Our findings show clearly that this 'childhood imprinting' gives strong protection against severe infection or death from two major strains of avian influenza. These results will help us quantify the risk of particular emerging influenza viruses sparking a major outbreak.feedback

Dolph Baker - Cal-Maine Foods

As the supply of shell eggs moved higher after the disruptions created by the Avian Influenza outbreak in the spring of 2015, market prices declined. Retail demand remained favorable; however, lower institutional demand for egg products and reduced egg exports pushed inventory levels higher and created additional pricing pressures.feedback

Eszter Vamos

Research shows that in addition to severe chest infections, flu may also lead to heart attacks and strokes. Most severe influenza complications occur in the elderly and people who suffer from long-term conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and asthma.feedback

Julie H. Shakib

This large study provides more evidence that when women are immunized against influenza during pregnancy, their infants are much less likely to be diagnosed with influenza in their first six months of life. Pregnant women may be concerned about harm, but they need to understand that there is strong evidence that getting vaccinated against influenza during pregnancy protects both themselves and their babies from serious harm.feedback

Leonardo Pereira

When a mother who refused the flu vaccine delivers, her newborn baby is more likely to contract influenza and more likely to require hospitalization compared to babies born to mothers who were vaccinated during pregnancy.feedback

Joseph Bresee

Flu activity this season started a bit later and has been lower so far than we've seen during the previous three seasons, but activity is still on the upswing and expected to continue for several weeks. Flu causes serious illnesses and deaths every year. This season, the CDC has received reports of hospitalizations and deaths in young, otherwise healthy people who were infected with influenza A H1N1, but not vaccinated.feedback

Chen Zhen

Pollution and using too many electronic devices and chemicals only makes the situation worse, as these factors weaken the immune system. Viruses are getting stronger, epidemics last longer, a simple influenza can last weeks; we have all experienced this, at least in Central Europe.feedback

York Chow

The risk of avian influenza in Hong Kong is not significantly higher than before, but since there is one case we have to be very careful.feedback

Debby Reynolds

No I can't confirm it, it's the H5 highly pathogennic strain of avian influenza but I've not yet got the N1 results so it's too soon to say.feedback

Philip Tod

All the virological tests carried out to date in Romania have proven negative for the presence of the avian influenza virus. So every day that passes reassures our confidence that there is not an outbreak of avian influenza in Romania.feedback

Thomas Muster

We have produced our vaccine with so-called reverse genetics. That means that we can do everything faster. In three or four days we can generate any strain of the influenza, both seasonal influenza or a influenza epidemic, to start the production of the vaccine.feedback

Keiji Fukuda - World Health Organization

We know that if this situation evolves, one of the questions that will come up very soon is, what is the availability of a vaccine?' We're already working with our collaborating centres, we have begun the preliminary work to prepare influenza viruses for a potential swine vaccine, if we need it.feedback

Keiji Fukuda - World Health Organization

The labelling of the pandemic as fake is to ignore recent history and science, and to trivialise the deaths of over 14,000 people and the many serious additional illnesses experienced by others. So, let me state clearly for the record: the influenza pandemic policies and responses recommended and taken by the WHO were not improperly influenced by the pharmaceutical industry.feedback

David Nabarro

I am expecting to see outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza in a number of locations over the next three or four months and I am basing that on what happened last year.feedback

Margaret Chan - World Health Organization

The scientific criteria for an influenza pandemic have been met. I have therefore decided to raise the level of Influenza Pandemic alert from Phase 5 to Phase 6. The world is now at the start of the 2009 influenza pandemic.feedback
