LONDON, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Replikins Ltd. today released new data on changes in the gene structure of the Ebola virus. Before the current outbreaks, the mean Ebola Reston gene Replikin Count (number of Replikins per 100 amino acids) between 1995 and 2002 was 1.1; the mean Replikin Count increased twofold in 2010, threefold in 2012, and sixteen-fold in 2013, thus predicting the current outbreaks in humans. In the past, this technology has been shown to be able to predict...

Modern Bird Genes Have Potential To Cause A Pandemic Similar To 1918 Spanish Flu
2014-06-12 10:02:18

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Avian bird flu strains that exist today share very similar characteristics with the deadly 1918 Spanish Flu strain that killed nearly five percent of the world’s population. That flu virus pandemic was the worst outbreak ever recorded and new research has found that only a few amino acids separate viral proteins currently found in bird populations from those that existed during the 1918 virus. The new evidence suggests a similar...

PLOS Certain influenza strains are highly virulent—they cause more serious disease and kill more people. Some of the damage is caused by the stronger immune response such strains elicit, especially in the lung. A study published on May 8th in PLOS Pathogens identifies SOCS4 as a key regulator of the immune response against influenza virus. Lukasz Kedzierski, Sandra Nicholson, and colleagues from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research and the University of Melbourne,...

Culling
2013-08-21 08:18:13

Culling is a term used for separating the good from the bad and discarding the bad with the cull being the rejected items. Culling is used to improve the desired group with specific characteristics to improve the group. Culling is used for strengthening a livestock herd and the culled animals are destroyed. When breeding pedigree animals, the culled are spayed or neutered. This prevents the undesirable trait of the animal from being bred with other animals.  Plant life is also...

Influenza A virus causes influenza in birds and some mammals. It is a genus of the Orthomyxoviridae family of viruses. Although the virus is uncommon several strains have been isolated from wild birds. Some can cause severe disease in domestic poultry and sometimes in humans. They are negative sense, single-stranded, segmented RNA viruses. Each subtype has mutated into a variety of strains with different pathogenic profiles. There is a vaccine for humans incase there is an avian influenza, or...
