We’re proud to announce the publication of our successful Phase 3 trial of NanoFlu™, our seasonal quadrivalent Nanoparticle #Influenza #Vaccine (#qNIV) candidate, in @TheLancetInfDis. Let’s dig into why it matters: thelancet.com/journals/lanin…

Thread:
According to @cdc, “on average, about 8% of the U.S. population gets sick from #flu each season.” There is an urgent need for improved flu #vaccines, particularly for older adults (>age 65), who bear higher disease burden. cdc.gov/flu/about/keyf…
Coverage of existing flu vaccines is >60% in the US, but recent flu seasons have shown vaccine effectiveness may be just 10-13% for one virus strain (A/H3N2) in older adults. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…

Ansicht, die ich nicht teile: Ja, nach Beendigung der Maßnahmen inclusive Masken werden saisonale Erreger incl. #Grippe zurückkommen - wenn dies aber NICHT im Winter 21/22 geschieht (nur 50% gg #SARSCoV2 geimpft + hochinfektiöses #Delta), profitieren alle 20min.ch/story/masken-l…
Vor saisonaler Grippe schützt eine Impfung, die bald für 2021/22 verfügbar ist - der Vorschlag, dass sich nun Menschen mit Grippe anstecken sollen, um vor Grippe geschützt zu sein, ist sicher wenig sinnvoll. Bei baldigem Rückzug in Innenräume ist mit Anstieg von #SARSCoV2
zu rechnen. Eine zeitgleiche Welle von Grippe, RSV und #COVID19 wäre für die Kliniken katastrophal. Ebenso schützen Masken vor Impfdurchbrüchen. Wir sollten alles versuchen, diesen Winter die Zirkulation von #SARSCoV2 & #Influenza möglichst gering zu halten.

@GovKathyHochul I’m a Disabled Retired Early RN who worked 35 years Hospital, Long Term Care, Homecare, Insurance, Medicaid. Long Version: traveloguefortheuniverse.blogspot.com/search?q=Nursi… Read one, all, or none. @JaniceDean @rontkim #aging @threadreaderapp #unroll please🙏🏼
@GovKathyHochul I respectfully ask, as a Fierce Elder and Disability Community Advocate, for You to Consider Nursing Facility Rules, Regulations & When Staff & Owners are Usually Fined or Disciplined for Violations & severity of Violations.
Because if AC and Owners are excused, then when there is another violation, it may seem trivial or easy to sweep under the rug. Nurse slapped a patient, supervisor fudged staffing sheets, aide yelled at someone, pillow asphyxiation, over medication, never ends.

Bye Bye Bacterial Clearance

Wow! The kids are going to be alright!! 🤩🤩🤩 I had an amazing time with @GranbyGators 5th graders this am.

We discussed #COVID, #vaccines, #Ebola, #Influenza, #WestNileVirus, #LungTransplantation, and becoming a physician-scientist.

I'll share some of their awesome ?s below
COVID/vaccines
- When will vaccines for kids be available?
- Do kids get any say in participating in clinical trials?
- How long do you think this pandemic will last?
- If kids get vaccinated, will we still have to wear masks in school?
- Where did COVID come from?
Lung/Solid Organ Transplantation
- How do you replace the heart or lungs? Our bodies will die if you take out the heart or lungs.
- Can you transplant a brain?
- How do you know if the donor lungs are good (and not crusty)?
- The lungs have to be the right size, don't they?

1. Being as it's Friday, there will be a #flu update from @CDCgov later this morning. I'll add to this when it comes out.
Just looking at the weekly Covid & #influenza report from @PHE_uk. In a normal flu season, one might see a little flu activity in early Sept. Nope. Image
2. @CDCgov's FluView is up. Actual confirmed cases of #flu remain very low. There is, however, a fair amount of influenza-like illness, or ILI, activity. The report suggests it may have plateaued among 0-4 & 5-24 yr olds. Will be interesting to watch this, now that school is in. Image
3. @CDCgov reports another 2 cases of infection with swine #flu viruses have been detected, both in Iowa. Neither was sick enough to need hospital care; both recovered. Both had traceable links to pigs. Image

Rückkehr von Erkältungsviren & der Einfluss von #SARSCoV2 #COVID19 Kontaktbeschränkung: ein 🧵- im letzten Winter ist die #Influenza-Saison praktisch ausgefallen & fast keine Detektion der üblichen Erkältungsviren -> die Maßnahmen sind ziemlich gut, um Übertragung zu stoppen 1/
Besonders, da schon eine bestehende Grundimmunität gg Erkältungsviren besteht - die wir alle im Laufe unserer Kindheit aufbauen & durch regelmäßige Reinfektion aufrecht erhalten. Dies, plus Corona-Schutzmaßnahmen haben Virusübertragung anderer resp. Viren gestoppt 2/
Mit zunehmender Lockerung kommen jetzt die anderen Erkältungsviren zurück, und treffen 1) auf Menschen mit bestehender, prä-pandemischer (Teil-) Immunität (Erwachsene & ältere Kinder) oder 2) noch fehlender Immunität (kleine Kinder) 3/

1. Let's talk a little #flu. Or more specifically, let's talk about ILI — #influenza-like illnesses. Those are cold & flu-like ailments caused by a stew of viruses: influenza, rhinoviruses, adenoviruses, parainfluenza, human coronaviruses & respiratory syncytial virus — RSV.
2. @CDCgov releases its weekly #flu updates Friday morning. This week's (covering Aug. 22-28) showed there is more ILI activity now (red arrow) than there was at any point last winter during the traditional cold and flu season. Does that mean flu has returned? In a word, no.
3. I assume different parts of the country may be seeing different combos of bugs, but here's what's being seen in Utah, from Intermountain Healthcare's GermWatch. Lots of rhinoviruses (the most common cause of the common cold) & RSV. No flu or human CoVs. intermountainhealthcare.org/health-informa…

🧵We learn a lot about pandemics through the Global South.

A century ago, everyday people, legislators, & doctors advocated for change & reform during the #influenza #pandemic. What else did they think & do?

Listen or read on @TheIndiaForum:
tinyurl.com/8amkutpz
The history of the influenza epidemic outside of the Western world has received little public or scholarly attention...relegating the worst afflicted populations to the margins of history & public memory.
The influenza pandemic most likely originated in the American Midwest in March 1918. It entered India sometime in May 1918 as sailors, lascars, peddlers, and soldiers returned from the front lines of World War I.

@JaniceDean @rontkim I believe Ron is Partly correct. There’s much more to this, Many Layers, Many Off the Record Conversations. Nobody with a Spine in the Vast NY Healthcare Complex. It’s a Complicated Machine. Many moving parts. Each Gear had to Turn one way. @threadreaderapp #unroll Plz.
@JaniceDean @rontkim @threadreaderapp 2️⃣ Start in the Moment #COVID19 hit NYC. Most Populous City. Hospitals started filling up. Everybody freaking out. When will PPE run out? Staff sick-who will replace? Elective surgery canceled. Beds filling up. Somebody called the Governor. I think Hospital did initial call.
@JaniceDean @rontkim @threadreaderapp 3️⃣ Then AC decided to act at some point and exert Executive Powers (I would seriously question he had That much power). He cooked up a plan to Triage-divert less sick patients away from Hospitals to free up beds. He didn’t know he was out of his jurisdiction, Practicing Medicine.

NEWS: Novavax Announces #COVID19 Vaccine Booster Data Demonstrating Four-Fold Increase in Neutralizing Antibody Levels Versus Peak Responses After Primary Vaccination ir.novavax.com/2021-08-05-Nov…
Following the primary vaccination series (21 days apart), a single booster dose at 6 months of NVX-CoV2373 induced a robust increase in anti-Spike antibody levels - up ~4.6-fold vs the response seen after the primary series.
The increased antibody response was consistent for both younger and older adults.

#PCR Tests Must Go” – Decision Made Right After #Soros & #Gates Bought #COVID 19 Test Manufacturer
This “decision” made by the #CDC will definitely raise the momentary value of the company, which was “coincidentally” just recently bought off by Bill #Gates and George #Soros.
The #CDC reported this weekend that “#PCR tests will soon no longer be available for emergency use to determine whether individuals have contracted #COVID-19, and seemed to tacitly admit that the tests are unable to differentiate between #COVID-19 and #influenza viruses.”
According to the report written and published by the National File,
“The CDC declared that it will #withdraw its emergency use application for the controversial #PCR tests on December 31, 2021, and is urging clinics and hospitals around the country to immediately

Zin en onzin van #Maskers. De meeste vragen rondom #covid19 kun je niet met een solide JA of NEE beantwoorden. Maar dat is wel hoe het wordt aangepakt. Ik krijg vaak de vraag 'heeft het masker zin?' en ik antwoord 'het ligt aan de situatie'. Graag leg ik die hier uit >
Het coronavirus kent meerdere transmissieroutes. In dit draadje richt ik mij op de routes: aerosol en spatten. Beiden kennen andere aanpak voor verbreken van transmissieketen. Bij elk bolletje kun je de keten verbreken met meerdere maatregelen. Ik ga me hier richten op #maskers >
Er zijn verschillende type maskers die gebruikt kunnen worden (figuur 3):
1.Chirurgisch mondneusmasker (onderverdeeld in 3 varianten)
2.Ademhalingsbeschermingsmasker (onderverdeeld in 3 varianten)
3.Stoffen maskers genaamd ‘mondkapje’

Comparison of #SARSCoV2 cultures in well-differentiated, primary epithelial cells in air-liquid interface from 12 different mammals species. I'm guessing the 1 paragraph & table of Methods on the cell culture has like months of work behind it.
(fig1: left 33C, right 37C) Image
Since these types of cultures can be tricky and susceptible to poor cell quality they used influenza A (human isolate) and influenza D (bovine isolate) as positive controls for virus infection. Image
Except for 1 bat (both bats are American species), all the cultures were infectable by 1 or both #influenza viruses, showing the cells are fine, but only rhesus macaque and domestic cat AEC cells were infectable by #SARSCoV2.
Hope that spillback into American bats will not occur.

Can a respiratory #virus infection confer #immunity against the other #respiratory virus? A much-debated issue in the virus immunology for many decades. What is the probable immune mechanism & does it indeed exist? What is the evidence for & against this hypothesis? 1/
It is hypothesized that a respiratory virus infection confers immunity against the same and other respiratory viruses for a short time, perhaps a few weeks. This immunologic mechanism, known as #heterosubtypic ‘temporary non-specific immunity’ 2/
This immune protection is associated with activation of the innate immune response to viral infection mediated by the release of Type I #interferons (IFN) & other cytokines that have broad protective effects against a range of viruses 3/

I think this case may herald a new phase in the expansion of highly pathogenic avian influenza into wildlife. This infectious viral disease was historically restricted to poultry farms; an old name for the disease is "fowl plague". 2/7
In recent years, highly pathogenic avian influenza has spread to wild waterbirds. However, outbreaks in wildlife were restricted to mainly to autumn and winter, and had stopped altogether or were at very low levels by the time spring arrived. 3/7
