Europe on bird flu alert
Oct 10 9:01 AM US/Eastern


European Union experts were due to arrive in Romania to help confirm suspected cases there of the potentially deadly bird flu and arrange technical assistance.

The continent remained on alert against an outbreak of the new variant of the disease, which scientists fear could mutate into a global pandemic that could take the lives of millions of people.

An epidemiologist from the British laboratory working on identifying the flu strain identified here and an expert from the EU's technical assistance bureau were to arrive Monday to assess the risk.

Both Romania and Turkey, where suspected cases have also been discovered, scrambled to cull birds thought to have come into contact with the disease.

Hungary Monday joined Poland in banning poultry imports from Romania in growing economic disruption caused by the outbreak.

Authorities in the northwestern Turkish province of Balikesir slaughtered thousands of birds after avian flu was detected in the region.

Following an initial cull of 2,000 birds, a further 3,000 head of poultry were gassed in the Kizikza region overnight Sunday to Monday, according to the NTV news channel.

which is why it's important to prepare for it now, since the probability of it happening eventually is high enough that we're basically living on borrowed time

I agree with you there, the fact that it's spreading to different bird populations isn't bump worthy. I'd imagine it might be worth a bump when it starts to hit the human populations in those countries too.

VIRA 38 Fraction (v38 AMF-1) Inhibits Bird Flu Virus (H5N1) Infections by Blocking Viral Attachment



LOS ANGELES, Oct. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- PRB Pharmaceuticals
(http://www.prbpharmaceuticals.com) and Lee's Pharmaceuticals
(http://www.leespharm.com) announced today the discovery that v38 AMF-1
inhibits H5N1 infection by blocking the ability of the virus to attach to
cells. Three fractions of v38 AMF-1 were tested against H5N1, the virus
responsible for causing avian influenza (bird flu), and all showed excellent
potency and selectivity at inhibiting H5N1 uptake and viral infections.
The results come from the U.S. arm of an ongoing, multi-national, anti-
viral project jointly sponsored by PRB Pharmaceuticals and Lee's
Pharmaceuticals. In the first arm of the project, researchers led by Dr. John
Tam at the Chinese University of Hong Kong found v38 AMF-1 to be effective
against a variety of pathogens, including SARS CoV, the virus responsible for
causing severe acute respiratory syndrome. It was subsequently shown that v38
AMF-1 inhibits the 3C-like protease (3CLpro), a crucial part of the SARS virus
life cycle.
In the second arm of the project, v38 AMF-1 was shown to inhibit H5N1 in
chicken embryos. 100% of chicken embryos inoculated with H5N1 and treated with
v38 AMF-1 survived while all of those not receiving v38 AMF-1 died within
hours.

SO who knows if this stuff really works or if this is a scam...the one thing i noticed is that its fairly cheap...29 bucks a bottle <shrug>

The only other real news I think is worthy today is this from Turkey...

BIRD FLU: MASS SLAUGHTER OF POULTRY BIRDS BEGINS IN TURKEY





Istanbul, 10 Oct. (AKI) - Turkish health workers have slaughtered some 2,500 turkeys, duck and chickens as part of a mass culling of birds in the village of Kiziksa in western Turkey, where the country's first case of bird flu was reported. The case of avian influenza was identified on Saturday in the area of Bandirma, where one third of Turkey's total production of white meat is produced.

One person whose name has not been released has been taken to a local hospital on suspicion of having contracted the disease.
