H1N1 NEWS SCAN: Comparisons with seasonal flu, complications in pregnancy, test OK’d, vaccine in Brazil

first_imgMay 24, 2010Study shows sepsis, fetal distress with H1N1 in pregnancyAmong 18 pregnant women hospitalized with pandemic flu, 9 had gastrointestinal symptoms, 13 met sepsis criteria, 4 experienced fetal distress, 1 had a miscarriage, and 1 2-day-old baby died from sepsis. Among the mostly minority women, 5 had asthma, 2 had sickle cell disease, 1 had diabetes, and 1 was HIV-positive. All patients received oseltamivir (Tamiflu), which, the authors write, may have improved outcomes. All were released from the hospital with good outcomes.http://archinte.ama-assn.org/cgi/content/short/170/10/868May 24 Arch Intern Med abstractSymptoms differ between H1N1, seasonal fluA study of hospital patients in Singapore in the first 3 months of the pandemic showed that H1N1 patients were younger but had fewer symptoms, on average, than those with seasonal flu. Of 547 patients with novel H1N1 pandemic flu, 42% were age 6 to 18, 35% were 19 to 35, and just 6% were 51 or older. In 193 patients who had seasonal flu, the respective numbers were 16%, 21%, and 23%. Fever was more common in those with seasonal flu, but cough, sore throat, and muscle aches were more common with H1N1.http://archinte.ama-assn.org/cgi/content/short/170/10/861May 24  Arch Intern Med abstractH1N1 shedding, transmission akin to seasonal fluA study of pandemic flu virus shedding and transmission in German households found that most patients stopped shedding virus by 5 days, consistent with other studies, and that the secondary attack rate for contacts was 26%, somewhat higher than other studies. Investigators also found that nasal wash was the most sensitive specimen type. They concluded that the findings are similar to seasonal influenza patterns.http://aje.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/abstract/171/11/1157Jun 1 Am J Epidemiol abstractFDA clears H1N1 diagnostic testThe US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said today it has approved the first diagnostic test for pandemic H1N1 flu through its normal regulatory pathway.

Everton player turns scout and gives his backing to transfer

first_imgA year ago Yerry Mina was still a Palmeiras player, about to go through a remarkable twelve months with ups and downs. In the January transfer window, the then 23 year old moved to Barcelona and quickly the Catalan media were on his back. There were tales from training of people being surprised at Mina’s level… it was thought he was nowhere near ready to play for the Spanish club, and there were doubts if he ever would be.Mina had cost Barcelona just under €12m and there was a worry whether they’d be able to get the money back. A loan elsewhere in La Liga was thought to be the best option.Then the World Cup happened, and the defender was one of the stars of the show.After countless transfer rumours he eventually joined Everton for around €30m, and is still trying to find his feet in the Premier League.Barcelona have been looking to add numbers in central defence since and after Mina was their first Colombian, they’ve signed another in Jeison Murillo from Valencia.The pair are friends, and showing there’s no hard feelings, Mina has spoken to Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo to give his own backing to the transfer, and a scouting report: “He is a very technical player, he likes to go out with the ball, he is very clear and he delivers the ball very well. He is quick, he goes well to the tackle and is good with his head.”Murillo will hope he’s not as easily cast aside as his friend. If he is, maybe Barca can look towards Everton again.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must Have.Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoCNBC InternationalHere’s How Big Businesses in Singapore Are Managing the Impact of COVID-19.CNBC InternationalUndoPerfect-Dating.comReveal Tung Chung As The Best City to Date for Love & RomancePerfect-Dating.comUndoDating.comFind out where single guys are hanging out in Tung ChungDating.comUndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndoTheTopFiveVPNEnjoy Netflix Now Without Any RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPNUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題Undolast_img read more
