Fusariotoxicosis from barley in British Columbia. I. Natural occurrence and diagnosis. (1/34086)

Clinical sickness was observed in domestic ducks, geese, horses and swine during October 1973. All species showed upper alimentary distress with mortalities occurring in the geese. Barley derived from a common source had been fed. Examination of the barley revealed invasion by Fusarium spp and detection of a high level of dermatitic fusariotoxins.  (+info)

Lead and mercury residues in kidney and liver of Canadian slaughter animals. (2/34086)

Liver and kidney samples were collected from Canadian slaughter animals during the winter of 1973-1974. A total of 256 samples were analyzed for lead. Mean lead levels of 1.02 ppm in poultry liver, 1.04 ppm in bovine liver, 1.02 ppm in bovine kidney, 0.73 ppm in pork liver and 0.85 ppm in pork kidney were found. A total of 265 samples were analyzed for mercury. Mean mercury levels of 0.003 ppm in poultry liver, 0.007 ppm in bovine liver, 0.008 ppm in bovine kidney, 0.001 ppm in pork liver and 0.013 ppm in pork kidney were found. All levels detected were below the Canadian official tolerance of 2 ppm for lead and administrative tolerance of 0.5 ppm for mercury.  (+info)

Infleuce of dietary levels of vitamin E and selenium on tissue and blood parameters in pigs. (3/34086)

Eighteen barrows approximately three weeks of age were used in a 3 X 3 factorial arrangement to investigate the effect of level of supplemental vitamin E and selenium on tissue and blood parameters. Tissue selenium concentrations increased in a quadratic manner with increased selenium intake with kidney tissue containing considerably greater concentrations than liver, heart or muscle. Supplementation of the diet caused a three-fold increase in serum selenium within the first week with a slight tendency to further increases in subsequent weeks. Serum vitamin E of unsupplemented pigs declined by fifty percent during the experiment, whereas supplemental vitamin E resulted in increased serum vitamin E. There was a considerable viration in percent peroxide hemolysis. Correlation of -0.63 between percent peroxide hemolysis and vitamin E intake and -0.85 between percent peroxide hemolysis and serum vitamin E were observed.  (+info)

Epidemiological field studies of animal populations. (4/34086)

Numerous survey designs have been developed for epidemiological field studies of human populations, most of which are also applicable to field studies of animal poulations. Each design has its own advantages and disadvantages. The final design selected for a particular study depends upon such factors as the overall purpose of the study, the geographic dimensions of the study area, the diseases incidence or prevalence and species to be studied as well as the planned use for the data. Population dynamics including the distribution and density of the species to be studied are factors that should also be considered in the initial design of a study. A surveillance system, using mailed questionnaire data and a subsequent survey using direct interviews of validate the data in a statewide study of swine birth defects are used to illustrate some of the techniques that can be applied to domestic animal populations in a fairly large geographic area. The type of data collected, its use and its limitations are also considered.  (+info)

Some leptospira agglutinins detected in domestic animals in British Columbia. (5/34086)

During a period of six years 7,555 bovine sera, 421 canine sera, 251 porcine sera and 135 equine sera were tested for agglutinins to Leptospira interrogans serotypes canicola, grippotyphosa, hardjo, icterohemorrhagiae, pomona and sejroe. The bovine sera reacted predominantly with hardjo and/or sejroe at a rate of 15% compared to 3.5% with pomona. Breeding or abortion problems were associated with pomona but not with sejroe/hardjo agglutinins. The canine sera reacted to canicola (9.9%y and icterohemorrhagiae (5.4%), tcted predominantly with canicola (8.9%) and icterohemorrhagiae (8.1%).  (+info)

Values of three coagulation screening tests of precolostral calves. (6/34086)

Prothrombin times, partial thromboplastin times and platelet counts were performed to determine normal values and to screen for coagulation defects of precolostral calves. The precolostral calves were in two groups: one group of a few calves was tested two years before the second larger group. The results for both groups were similar. The tests were performed on postcolostral calves and on mature cows to compare their values with those of precolostral calves. The mean values of prothrombin times and partial thromboplastin times of precolostral calves in the first group were 18.8 seconds and 54.8 seconds respectively. The mean values of prothrombin times and partial thromboplastin times of precolostral calves in the second group were 18.8 seconds and 50.8 seconds respectively. The mean platelet count was 422,400/cmm for the first group and 482,800/cmm for the second group.  (+info)

The determination of hemoglobin and myoglogin residues as a parameter for testing heat exposure in back bacon. (7/34086)

The use of an extraction of the heme pigments hemoglobin and myoglobin as a test for the heat exposure of back bacon was investigated by treating back bacon at varying temperatures of 50-70 degrees C and times of two to 180 minutes and observing the effect on the absorbance of heme pigment residue after nitrite oxidation. Absorbance at 409 nm was used in place of the more usual 540 nm to provide greater sensitivity in the detection of heme. A decrease in residual heme pigments was time-dependent, particularly at lower temperatures. In view of this factor and the complex nature of the heat exposure of a large block of back bacon, the application of this test would require a calibration of each process. Alternatively, limits to the amounts of heme pigment residue could be set. The heme pigment test is useful in its simplicity and overcomes difficulties associated with the coagulation and enzyme tests.  (+info)

Quantitative assessment of the morphology of the pig's head used as a model in surgical experimentation. Part 1: Methods of Measurements. (8/34086)

Thirty-two surface measurements were described for assessment of the effect of complex surgical operations on the skeleton of the face in pigs. The methods of measurements imitate those of anthropometry. The surface measurements can complement cephalometry with data about the changes in the soft tissue and thus improve the documentation of the effect of surgery. This paper can help in the evaluation of complicated osteotomy procedures using the pig as the animal model, for facial reconstruction research in humans.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - The use of DNA fingerprinting to assess monozygotic twinning in Meishan and Landrace x Large White pigs. AU - Ashworth, C J AU - Ross, Alexander. AU - Barrett, Perry. PY - 1998. Y1 - 1998. N2 - The extent of embryo mortality is usually estimated by the difference between the numbers of corpora lutea and embryos in the same animal, which assumes that each corpora lutea represents one potential embryo. Recent observations from the authors laboratory reveal situations in which the number of embryos exceeds the number of corpora lutea, implicating the presence of identical twins. The objective of the present study was to establish DNA fingerprinting techniques to investigate the prevalence of monozygotic twinning in two breeds of pig. DNA fingerprints of every fetus carried by 6 Meishan (MS) and 6 Landrace x Large White (LxLW) gilts on Day 29 +/- 2 of pregnancy were obtained. Five LxLW and 3 MS litters carried no identical fetuses. The remaining gilts carried a pair of fetuses with ...

Environmental temperature influences energy intake utilization and tissue deposition in pig. However, physiological mechanisms involved in muscle metabolic adaptation to cold temperature are unclear. This study aimed at evaluating the effects of a cold temperature applied during the post-weaning (PW) and growing-finishing (GF) periods of pigs on growth performance, body composition and Longissimus muscle (LM) energy metabolism, with emphasis on the AMP-protein kinase (AMPK) pathway involved in homeostasis regulation. A total of 84 Large White x (Large White x Landrace) piglets (castrated males and females) fed ad libitum were submitted to either Cold (C: from 23°C to 15°C) or Thermoneutrality (T: from 28°C to 23°C) temperature during PW. 12 C and 12 T piglets were slaughtered at 25 kg and the remaining piglets were reared at 12°C (CC) or 23°C (TT), up to 115 kg. During PW, cold exposure induced strong responses on growth performance. Despite a higher average feed intake (AFI, + 50 g/d, P|0.01), C
Some important videos that one must watch to understand to remove the misconceptions about swine flu. The videos titled How I survived swine flu is the interview of two swine flu survivors. Is is basically a first hand account of two H1N1 survivors. Also Dr. Srinivasan Ramanathan Lilavati Hospital gives tips on choosing the right mask for H1N1 and precautions that we need to take to avoid swine flu. It is important to note that the fatality rate in swine flu is less than 1%. Because these symptoms are not specific to swine flu, a differential diagnosis of probable swine flu requires not only symptoms, but also a high likelihood of swine flu due to the persons recent and past medical history. For example, during the 2009 swine flu outbreak in the United States, the CDC advised physicians to consider swine influenza infection in the differential diagnosis of patients with acute febrile respiratory illness who have either been in contact with persons with confirmed swine flu, or who were in one ...
Based on annual pork yield of each province in 1996-2014, using Gini coefficient and spatial polarization index model, empirical analysis was carried out for spatial imbalance and polarization degree of swine production distribution. Results indicate that there is high imbalance in spatial distribution of swine production. The imbalance takes on first rise then declines with fluctuation, largely because of inter-group gap. From the perspective of regions, the regions with balanced grain production have the highest imbalance in swine production, followed by main sales regions, and the main grain production regions have the lowest imbalance. The polarization index indicates that the overall polarization degree of the spatial distribution of swine production takes on a growing trend, and that of each functional region of grain production is also growing.

APHIS evaluated a range of alternatives for a nationally coordinated feral swine damage management program and selected the Integrated APHIS National Feral Swine Damage Management Program, a nationally coordinated response to reduce and, in some areas, eliminate the risks and damage inflicted by feral swine to agriculture, property, natural and cultural resources, and human health. APHIS serves as the lead federal agency in a cooperative effort with other agency partners, tribes, organizations, and local entities that share a common interest in reducing or eliminating problems caused by feral swine. The program is implemented according to applicable federal, state, tribal and local laws, and in accordance with local management objectives for feral swine. The selected alternative is also the environmentally preferable alternative.. Program activities are implemented in all or most states and territories where feral swine occur. In states where feral swine are an infrequent occurrence or ...
Swine flu is an infection of a host animal by any one of several specific types of microscopic organisms called swine influenza virus.Basically Swine flu is a respiratory disease that infects pigs . This new killer swine flu virus is a never-before-seen virus in human beings that can cause a serious situation with pandemic potential. The symptoms of Swine Flu are similar to that of a regular seasonal flu that includes fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.. The preventive measures are as follows:. 1. Cover your mouth and nose with tissues when you sneeze or cough and dispose them properly. Practice good personal hygiene and make sure you use surgical masks and gloves and other sanitary products when you are stepping out of your home.. 2. Those who travel abroad have to be alert about the epidemic situation.

Fetal pigs are unborn pigs used in elementary as well as advanced biology classes as objects for dissection. Pigs, as a mammalian species, provide a good specimen for the study of physiological systems and processes due to the similarities between many pig and human organs. Along with frogs and earthworms, fetal pigs are among the most common animals used in classroom dissection. There are several reasons for this, the main reason being that pigs, like humans, are mammals. Shared traits include common hair, mammary glands, live birth, similar organ systems, metabolic levels, and basic body form. They also allow for the study of fetal circulation, which differs from that of an adult. Secondly, fetal pigs are easy to obtain because they are by-products of the pork industry. Fetal pigs are the unborn piglets of sows that were killed by the meat packing industry. These pigs are not bred and killed for this purpose, but are extracted from the deceased sows uterus. Fetal pigs not used in classroom ...

AU - Navarro, P.. PY - 1996/11/1. Y1 - 1996/11/1. N2 - Swine have the largest number of IgG subclass genes of all species so far studied but have a single gene for IgA which occurs in two allelic forms that differ in hinge length. Swine also have constant region genes for Cμ and Cε, but lack a gene homologous to that which encodes IgD in rodents and primates, despite the otherwise high degree of sequence similarity of all other swine C (H) genes with those of humans. Swine have , 20 V(H) genes, a single J(H) and perhaps a limited number of D(H) segments. Newborn piglets show preferential V(H) and D(H) usage and may use gene conversion as a mechanism for expanding their antibody repertoire. Despite the close similarity of their Ig gene sequences to humans, swine belong to the group of animals that includes ...
With more than 26% to 27% of the value of a hog coming from exports, trade was the dominant topic for pork producers this week during the National Pork Producers Council fly-in lobbying push in Washington, D.C. The U.S. remains the worlds largest pork exporter, sending 2.3 million metric tons overseas last year, which equated to about $6 billion in revenue for pork producers.
Animals, housing, and feeding. Thirty-six Large White x Landrace piglets were purchased from a commercial swine herd on the day of weaning at 21 days of age (Day 0). They were transported to Murdoch University, weighed, ear tagged, and allotted in a randomized complete block design to three treatment groups of 12, each of which comprised six males and six females penned separately. The pigs were housed in six adjacent pens in an isolation animal facility. Water and feed were available ad libitum, and each day uneaten feed was removed and fresh feed was supplied. Group food intake, which was the sum of the intakes of both pens in each group, was recorded daily. The diet was a commercial, antimicrobial-free, pelleted weaner diet (19% crude protein). Study design. Beginning on Day 0, the food offered to the piglets of Group 1 was top-dressed with a controlled-release pellet containing 1% of Chemeq polymeric antimicrobial plus 0.1% sucrose. The amount added was such that the piglets were consuming ...
Swine influenza (also swine flu) refers to influenza caused by any strain of the influenza virus endemic in pigs (swine). Strains endemic in swine are called swine influenza virus (SIV).. Swine flu is common in swine and rare in humans. People who work with swine, especially people with intense exposures, are at risk of catching swine influenza if the swine carry a strain able to infect humans. However, these strains rarely are able to pass from human to human. Rarely, SIV mutates into a form able to pass easily from human to human. The strain responsible for the 2009 swine flu outbreak is believed to have undergone such a mutation.This virus is named swine flu because one of its surface proteins is similar to viruses that usually infect pigs however this strain is spreading in people and it is unknown if it infects pigs.. In humans, the symptoms of swine flu are similar to those of influenza and of influenza-like illness in general, namely chills, fever, sore throat, muscle pains, severe ...

Carlsbad-based Life Technologies Corp. has created a USDA-approved, real-time test to detect strains of swine flu. The Swine Influenza Virus testing kit will be sold to veterinary diagnostic labs around the world, the company said, in a statement July 12. Swine flu is a common debilitating condition mostly affecting pigs, causing fever, lethargy, breathing problems and significant weight loss - and resulting in economic loss to swine producers. In rare instances, the virus is transmitted from pigs to humans, with human symptoms similar to the regular seasonal influenza virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, Lifes test, called the VetMAXTM-Gold SIV Detection Kit, is for animal use only. The detection kit can test for various strains of swine flu, including H1N1. Studies have shown that the swine flu H1N1 is common throughout pig populations worldwide, with 25 percent of animals showing antibody evidence of infection, according to the CDC. In the U.S., ...
Swine influenza virus was found to be regularly present in the turbinates, tracheal exudate and lungs of infected swine but not in the spleens, livers, kidneys, mesenteric lymph nodes, colon mucosae, brains or blood. It was present in low concentration in the bronchial lymph nodes of 2 out of 8 animals. This localization of the virus in swine accords with its classification as a pneumotropic virus.. ...
At this time there is no data demonstrating any risk of dogs and cats contracting this strain of the virus, says Dr. Louise Murray, the Director of Medicine at the ASPCAs Bergh Memorial Hospital in New York City. However, owners of pet pigs, as well as farmers, should monitor their animals health more closely during this outbreak.. Anyone with a Vietnamese potbellied-pig, an African pygmy, or other pet pigs should be aware that there are Influenza type A vaccines available and recommended for healthy swine.. The ASPCA also recommends keeping pet pigs and swine farms isolated from any public exposure that might put them at risk for illness. The American Association of Swine Veterinarians (I had no idea there was such a group until today) suggests that visitors should not be allowed into swine production units, and for humans to avoid unnecessary contact with pigs. Because there are many causes of illness in pigs, if your pet pig is unwell, it is recommended to consult with your ...

Swine influenza virus (SIV) is a respiratory disease that affects pigs of all ages. The clinical signs include a deep-chested barking cough, sneezing, labored breathing, anorexia, lethargy, fever, a serous nasal discharge, and conjuctivitis.1 Recovery is rapid. Reproductive problems, such as higher return-to-estrus rates, have been reported during severe outbreaks of SIV, especially when the clinical signs are at their most severe in the adult population.1 Individual pigs that have secondary infections will show more severe signs.1,2-5 It may take several days to weeks for the syndrome to spread and then resolve within a swine unit.. Because the period during which the virus can be isolated is quite short, SIV can be difficult to diagnose. Swine influenza virus is seldom detected on nasal swabs beyond 10 days postinfection, and can be isolated from lung tissue for an even more limited period. The best time to isolate SIV is when the animal is febrile, although this period is also short. ...
Swine influenza is known to be caused by influenza A subtypes H1N1,[8] H1N2,[8] H2N3,[9] H3N1,[10] and H3N2.[8] In pigs, three influenza A virus subtypes (H1N1, H1N2, and H3N2) are the most common strains worldwide.[11] In the United States, the H1N1 subtype was exclusively prevalent among swine populations before 1998; however, since late August 1998, H3N2 subtypes have been isolated from pigs. As of 2004, H3N2 virus isolates in US swine and turkey stocks were triple reassortants, containing genes from human (HA, NA, and PB1), swine (NS, NP, and M), and avian (PB2 and PA) lineages ...
Definition of Fetal Pig Dissection in the Legal Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is Fetal Pig Dissection? Meaning of Fetal Pig Dissection as a legal term. What does Fetal Pig Dissection mean in law?
Its named for a virus that pigs can affect pigs. People usually do not get swine flu, but human infections can and do happen. The virus is contagious and can spread from human to human. Symptoms of swine flu in people are similar to the symptoms of regular human flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.Swine flu also known as swine influenza, hog flu and pig flu. In 2009 the media labeled as swine flu the flu caused by 2009s new strain of swine-origin A/H1N1 pandemic virus just as it had earlier dubbed as avian flu flu caused by the recent Asian-linage HPAI (High Pathogenic Avian Influenza) H5N1 strain that is still endemic in many wild bird species in several countries ...
Control of swine influenza by vaccination has become more difficult in recent decades, as the evolution of the virus has resulted in inconsistent responses to traditional vaccines. Standard commercial swine flu vaccines are effective in controlling the infection when the virus strains match enough to have significant cross-protection, and custom (autogenous) vaccines made from the specific viruses isolated are created and used in the more difficult cases.[80][81] Present vaccination strategies for SIV control and prevention in swine farms typically include the use of one of several bivalent SIV vaccines commercially available in the United States. Of the 97 recent H3N2 isolates examined, only 41 isolates had strong serologic cross-reactions with antiserum to three commercial SIV vaccines. Since the protective ability of influenza vaccines depends primarily on the closeness of the match between the vaccine virus and the epidemic virus, the presence of nonreactive H3N2 SIV variants suggests that ...
Boost your immune system with the best immune support supplement available to you.. London July 24 2009. Britain released today that England has 100,000 MORE cases of swine flu this week than they had last week. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) announced that swine flu now has developed another symptom, neurological disorders, especially in children (4 cases in Dallas TX this week). There seems to be a surge of swine flu infections that support a growing concern for a catastrophic world pandemic. The technical definition for pandemic has been reached. There is now the waiting game to determine how man will tame this invisible scourge.. Swine flu Conspiracy?.

In order to identify the swine genes which play roles in the regulation of swine influenza A virus replication, the gene microarray was performed to explore the systematical host response to the swine H1N1/2009 influenza A virus infection in porcine cells. Overall design: Two pools of total RNA were extracted from the swine H1N1/2009 influenza A virus infected or uninfected NPTr cells and hybrided on Affymetrix Porcine genome array Array.
We used 66 pregnant sows to compare serum progesterone concentrations following a single injection of either saline or one of two prostaglandin F2a products approved for use in swine. Pregnant sows in a commercial swine farm were assigned to one of the three groups in a completely randomized design balanced across treatment for parity and day of gestation. Each sow received a single intramuscular dose (2 mL) on d 111, 112, or 113 of gestation. Mean serum progesterone concentrations were decreased significantly at 6 and 12 hours after dose administration of both prostaglandin products. However, these effects did not differ. Serum progesterone concentrations did not decrease significantly at any time in the control group. This indicates that regression of corpora lutea was initiated at the same time by both prostaglandin products.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 16, 2000
In this report, the global Porcine Serum market is valued at USD XX million in 2016 and is expected to reach USD XX million by the end of 2022, growing at
Researchers have discovered a swine flu virus in Chinese pigs that may be able to jump to humans and are sounding the alarm for another potential pandemic as international public health experts still struggle to contain the coronavirus.Chinese and British scientists found that the new virus, G4 EA H1N1, shares characteristics with the H1N1 virus that caused the global pandemic in 2009. Among the similarities, the new virus can bind to, infect and replicate in tissue cells
2015) Nature Communications 6, 6696.. The complex and unresolved evolutionary origins of the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic exposed major gaps in our knowledge of the global spatial ecology and evolution of influenza A viruses in swine (swIAVs). By undertaking the most expansive phylogenetic analysis of swIAV sequence data to date, we demonstrate that the global live swine trade strongly predicts the spatial dissemination of swIAVs, with Europe and North America acting as sources of viruses in Asian countries. In contrast, China has the worlds largest swine population but is not a major exporter of live swine, and is not an important source of swIAVs in neighboring Asian countries or globally. A meta-population simulation model incorporating trade data predicts that the global ecology of swIAVs is more complex than previously thought, and the US and Chinas large swine populations are unlikely to be representative of swIAV diversity in their respective geographic regions, requiring independent ...

Korean imports of U.S. distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) have increased more than 100 percent with continued growth potential as Korean nutritionists gain confidence in utilizing DDGS in swine rations. The U.S. Grains Council hosted a webinar the week of November 3 aimed at feed formulators, swine extension specialists and pork producers, giving the council a longer reach into the Korean swine industry and enabling local partners to share information more broadly among industry colleagues.
A Certified Berkshire programme continues to lead niche pork production markets based on its meat quality advantage over commodity-based pork. This economic incentive is especially valuable for smaller, more traditional pork producers. The disadvantages of these Berkshire pigs are fatter carcasses, slower gains, and less efficient feed conversion compared to commodity pork production. Consequently, these pigs are often a better fit for less intensive or lower cost facilities production type systems.. Most Berkshire pork niche production systems require access to bedding and limit the use of antibiotics and feeding of animal-proteins in feeds. In Iowa, producers of Berkshire pork often raise their pigs in existing older bedded barns or hoop barns because this type of system matches the housing requirements of their markets. Housing influences the thermal environment that pigs experience and thus influences growth rate and nutritional requirements of growing pigs.. Better understanding of feed ...

Swine Flu is caused by influenza type A virus, there are regular outbreaks among herds of pigs, where the disease causes high levels of illness but is rarely fatal. It tends to spread in autumn and winter but can circulate all year round. There are many different types of swine flu and like human flu, the infection is constantly changing. Swine flu does not normally infect humans, although sporadic cases do occur usually in people who have had close contact with pigs. There have also been rare documented cases of humans passing the infection to other humans. Human to human transmission of swine flu thought to spread in the same way as seasonal flu - through coughing and sneezing. In the latest outbreak, in Mexico, it is clear that the disease is being passed from person to person. The outbreak in Mexico seems to involve a new type of swine flu that contains DNA that is typically found in avian and human viruses. The World Health Organisation has confirmed at least some of the cases are caused by ...
Interpretive Summary: Technical Abstract: The objective of this study was to determine the effect of feeding different lysine and metabolizable energy (ME) levels to developing gilts on age at puberty and reproductive tract measurements. Crossbred Large White × Landrace gilts (n = 1221) housed in groups from 100 d of age until slaughter (approximately 260 d of age) were randomly allotted to 6 corn-soybean diets formulated to provided 2 standardized ileal digestible lysine levels [100% (HL), 85% (LL)] and 3 ME levels [90% (LME), 100% (MME), 110% (HME)] at 100 d of age. The 100% lysine and 100% ME were based on an informal survey from the U.S. commercial swine industry to obtain average levels that are currently fed to developing gilts. Gilts were weighed and backfat thickness and loin muscle area were recorded at the beginning of the trial and then every 28 d. Starting at 160 d of age, gilts were exposed daily to vasectomized boars and observed for behavioral estrus. At slaughtered, their ...
Instead of fearing and avoiding the present contagion humorously named the swine flu, there is an urgent need to find positive uses for the Swine Flu. While some may dismiss this idea off-handedly, swiftly concluding that there is no practical use for an evolved virulent virus that attacks mankind sickening billions of persons and causing the weak to perish, still others may find that every scourge has a benefit albeit difficult to conceive. Thus the List of Practical Uses for the Swine Flu becomes timely and essential, since the swine flu may evolve into something else as quickly as it arrived, before practical uses for the flu are identified and implemented.. The List of Practical Uses for the Swine Flu is the first step in the scientific reduction to useful products. While many scientists are very able in solving problems by delving deeply into a problem they are often deficient in expansive thinking.. For example, perhaps the list could alert scientists that they could use its virulence as a ...
Swine flu has been labelled as the next major disease pandemic. It appears to have emerged in Mexico has possibly killed more than 100 people and infected a few thousand, most of whom have recovered, incidentally. Cases and suspected cases have now been identified in the USA, New Zealand, France, Scotland, Israel, Spain, and elsewhere (see the swine flu outbreak Google Map).. In Sciencebase on April 26, I offered answers to some of the frequently asked questions that have arisen about swine flu, and today am providing an updated FAQ in response to the comments received and concerns raised elsewhere.. How many people have died from swine flu?. In the current outbreak of swine flu as of April 27, just 20 deaths of 103 suspected fatal cases have actually been confirmed as having been caused by the new virus. Thats a lethality rate of just over 1%. Spanish Flu in 1918 supposedly had a mortality rate of 2.5%*. It is in epidemic conditions difficult to disentangle cause of death, pneumonia or other ...

On April 25, 2009, Wayne Madsen (investigative journalist) reported claims that some UN World Health Organization officials and scientists believed the 2009 new H1N1 strain of swine flu virus appeared to be the product of gene splicing, as opposed natural processes, citing as evidence the presence of genetic material from strains not occurring in pigs (such as bird flu and different forms of human flu), the lack of transmission from pigs to humans and the flu disproportionately affecting young adults when compared to other strains of flu.. The virus was later declared by the CDC to be a combination of four different viruses: North American swine flu, North American avian flu, human H1N1 flu and a swine flu strain found in Asia and Europe.. New Scientist magazine cited the example of a H1N2 influenza pandemic in the 1990s that only affected pigs in the United Kingdom. This subtype of the H1N2 was also a reassortment (mix) of swine, human and avian strains.. Please post your comments and thoughts ...

The river rises in the Forest of Bowland in central Lancashire, as two distinct tributaries, the Tarnbrook Wyre and the Marshaw Wyre, whose confluence is near the village of Abbeystead. In 1984 a pumping station, built just below the confluence as part of a water transfer scheme in the 1980s, was the location of the Abbeystead disaster, an explosion in which 16 people were killed and a further 22 were injured. From Abbeystead, the river flows south through Dolphinholme to Garstang, where the Lancaster Canal crosses on a small aqueduct. One mile south, at Catterall, it meets its first major tributary, the River Calder. The river then turns westwards, flowing through St Michael's On Wyre where it is joined by its second major tributary, the River Brock. It becomes tidal below the weir at St Michael's. It is crossed by a toll bridge (normal fee is 50 pence) at Cartford, between Little Eccleston and Out Rawcliffe.
