Future Course of New Lethal Avian Flu Outbreak in China Can Be Predicted

April 8, 2013

Will H7N9 Follow Limited Course of SARS or Longer Course of H1N1 Pandemic? Can a Potential Pandemic Be Prevented?

LONDON, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Bioradar UK Ltd. and Replikins Ltd. today announced that when the full H7N9 virus genomic sequences from the first lethal and surviving human cases of the current outbreak of H7N9 are available for analysis, hopefully within a week, their Bioradar Replikins FluForecast(®) software will be able to determine within 24 hours the likely future course of the outbreak. FluForecast(®) had previously analyzed the virus genomic sequences in the 2003 SARS coronavirus outbreak and in the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus pandemic (1-4) to successfully predict their respective courses.

Furthermore, BioRadar UK Ltd. and Replikins Ltd. can produce an effective non-biologic synthetic vaccine tailored to the current H7N9 outbreak within seven days as they did with H5N1 (1). This is possible because scientists at Bioradar, UK. Ltd and its affiliate Replikins, Ltd. have discovered a genomic structure, and a technology related to virus rapid replication, infectivity, and lethality named Replikins.

The Replikins genomic technology permits:

1) The prediction of the arrival, geographic location, lethality, and the course of an infection, with an accuracy (p<0.001) recognized by the UN FAO( )(1)

  • The Replikins genomic software predicted the H1N1 outbreak and pandemic of 2009 by an increase in the genomic Replikin(®)Count in 2008, one year in advance of the pandemic, as reported by CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta (1-3)
  • The increase in genomic Replikins has been counted and seen by
    3D X-ray diffraction in the first real-time tracking of structural genomic changes from pre-pandemic through pandemic clinical states (1).( )

2) The production of tailored influenza vaccines in 7 days, by solid phase synthesis.

  • Replikins synthetic vaccines, shipped freeze dried, have been shown to be effective against H5N1 and Taura Syndrome viruses (1,2,4).
  • Replikins, Ltd. has developed both a cross-strain ReplikinsTransFlu(®)Vaccine and a specific H7N9 Replikins vaccine available for further testing.
