3 Influenza - Provincial Board of Health Ontario
Auteur : Provincial Board of Health Ontario
Genre : Médecine
The Provincial Board of Health deems it advisable that the statement issued by the American Public Health Association, following the recent meeting in Chicago should be in the hands of the medical profession of Ontario. Consequently this statement is herein given in full.
As there is considerable difference of opinion among health officers, the profession and the public, with reference to the value of measures of prevention, such as the placarding and quarantine of premises where the disease exists, the Board has deemed it of sufficient importance to add some remarks giving the views of provincial and state officers of health in this respect as well as upon other points of interest.
With the view of learning the experience of the state and provincial health officers of the United States and Canada the Board addressed the following inquiry to all such officers, viz.:—“Does

4 Influenza - Nadja Podbregar &
Auteur : Nadja Podbregar &
Genre : Forme et santé
Kommt die große Grippe-Pandemie? Wird die Schweinegrippe H1N1 zu einem Nachfolger der Spanischen Grippe von 1918? Noch kann diese Fragen niemand beantworten. Denn die Influenza ist unberechenbar. Niemand weiß, ob sich das bisher eher milde Virus zum Schlimmeren ändert, ob es sich mit dem Vogelgrippe-Virus verbindet oder doch alles im Sande verläuft.

Die Grippe ist ein alter Bekannter. Schon seit Jahrhunderten grassieren verschiedenste Varianten dieses RNA-Virus in Vögeln, Schweinen und auch im Menschen. Meist verlaufen die Influenzawellen eher harmlos: Alljährlich im Winter geht ein neuer Virenstamm um, um dann wieder zu verschwinden.

Doch alle paar Jahrzehnte ändert sich das Bild. Dann taucht – scheinbar aus dem Nichts – plötzlich ein besonders harter Gegner auf: Ein Influenza-Virus gegen das unser Immunsystem nicht gewappnet ist, das völlig neue Eige

8 Influenza - Sics Editore
Auteur : Sics Editore
Genre : Médecine
In the Northern Hemisphere, seasonal influenza epidemics usually occur during the winter ("the flu season") with the peak typically around January and February. At-risk groups should be vaccinated annually well in advance (October-November) before the start of the expected influenza epidemic. National public health organizations issue recommendations of groups to whom annual influenza vaccination should be offered (possibly free of charge), i.e. of individuals whose health would be essentially threatened by influenza or who would gain significant health benefit from influenza vaccination. Influenza can be diagnosed on the basis of the clinical presentation combined with a confirmed epidemic circulating in the community, or on the basis of virological (rapid) diagnostic test results. The treatment of influenza in a healthy adult patient is generally symptomatic. Antiviral agents should be

10 Influenza - Jeremy Brown
Auteur : Jeremy Brown
Genre : Sciences sociales
A veteran ER doctor explores the troubling, terrifying, and complex history and present-day research of the flu virus, from the origins of the Great Flu that killed millions, to vexing questions such as: are we prepared for the next epidemic, should you get a flu shot, and how close are we to finding a cure?

While influenza is now often thought of as a common and relatively mild disease, it still kills over 30,000 people in the US each year. Dr. Jeremy Brown, currently Director of Emergency Care Research at the National Institutes of Health, expounds on the flu’s deadly past to solve the mysteries that could protect us from the next outbreak. In the “gripping…extensively researched” (Gail D’Onofrio MD, Yale School of Medicine) Influenza, he talks with leading epidemiologists, policy makers, and the researcher who first sequenced the genetic building blo

12 Liberati dai manipolatori - Christel Petitcollin
Auteur : Christel Petitcollin
Genre : Famille et relations
Tante persone, sul lavoro o nella sfera privata, vivono sotto l'influenza schiacciante di qualcuno, magari senza esserne pienamente consapevoli. Però manifestano sintomi ricorrenti: ansia, paure, sensi di inadeguatezza, somatizzazioni, insicurezza. Spesso danno la colpa alla propria «eccessiva» emotività e sensibilità, mentre in realtà il responsabile è quella persona tossica e manipolatrice che ha preso il controllo della loro vita. Può essere il partner, un familiare, un amico, un capoufficio o un collega che si trasforma in un persecutore che mente, si lamenta, critica, umilia, ricorre al ricatto morale e colpevolizza. Un vero e proprio vampiro che si nutre delle energie e delle emozioni dell'altro e lo sfrutta per soddisfare i suoi bisogni. Dopo il successo de Il potere nascosto degli ipersensibili, in questo libro Christel Petitcollin delinea con precisione l'identikit del m

14 Antivirals for Pandemic Influenza - Committee on Implementation of Antiviral Medication Strategies for an Influenza Pandemic
Auteur : Committee on Implementation of Antiviral Medication Strategies for an Influenza Pandemic
Genre : Médecine
Planning for an influenza pandemic, whether it occurs in the near or distant future, will need to take into account many constantly evolving factors. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) Committee on Implementation of Antiviral Medication Strategies for an Influenza Pandemic was asked by the Department of Health and Human Services, (DHHS) to consider best practices and policies for providing antiviral treatment and prophylaxis during a pandemic event. The committee’s report, entitled Antivirals for Pandemic Influenza: Guidance on Developing a Distribution and Dispensing Program, calls for a national and public process of creating an ethical framework for antiviral use within the context of uncertainty and scarcity. It is unclear whether antivirals will work against a pandemic strain as well as they work against seasonal influenza. Also, government stockpiles may not be sufficient for all po

15 Reusability of Facemasks During an Influenza Pandemic - Committee on the Development of Reusable Facemasks for Use During an Influenza Pandemic
Auteur : Committee on the Development of Reusable Facemasks for Use During an Influenza Pandemic
Genre : Médecine
Any strategy to cope with an influenza pandemic must be based on the knowledge and tools that are available at the time an epidemic may occur. In the near term, when we lack an adequate supply of vaccine and antiviral medication, strategies that rely on social distancing and physical barriers will be relatively more prominent as means to prevent spread of disease. The use of respirators and facemasks is one key part of a larger strategy to establish barriers and increase distance between infected and uninfected individuals. Respirators and facemasks may have a role in both clinical care and community settings.

Reusability of Facemasks During an Influenza Pandemic: Facing the Flu answers a specific question about the role of respirators and facemasks to reduce the spread of flu: Can respirators and facemasks that are designed to be disposable be reused safely and effect

17 Review of the DoD-GEIS Influenza Programs - Committee for the Assessment of DoD-GEIS Influenza Surveillance and Response Programs
Auteur : Committee for the Assessment of DoD-GEIS Influenza Surveillance and Response Programs
Genre : Médecine
The influenza pandemics of 1918, 1957, and 1968 offer a warning to the world about the potential dangers of the influenza virus. In 2006, after a series of cases and clusters of the highly pathogenic H5N1 avian virus made clear the threat of a possible pandemic, the U.S. Congress allocated $39 million to the Department of Defense Global Emerging Infections Surveillance and Response System (DoD-GEIS) to increase and improve its worldwide influenza surveillance network through upgrades to its domestic and overseas laboratories' capabilities.
An Institute of Medicine (IOM) committee was subsequently formed to evaluate the effectiveness of these laboratory-based programs in relation to the supplemental funding, and the report that follows details the committee's findings.

As healthcare professionals, we nurses are at high-risk of exposure to "what's going around" in our towns and neighborhoods. We all take precautions to avoid contact with infectious materials--we gown, mask, wash our hands, and wash them again. We try to eat right, get enough exercise and sleep, and many of us take vitamins and supplements to strengthen our immune systems. Why then, do we risk getting the flu when a simple vaccine can provide protection from many or all of the strains circulating in our communities?

Auteur : Baylor University Medical Center Proceedings
Genre : Forme et santé
INFLUENZA VIRUS In 1918, a new influenza virus, whose natural home was in birds, infected humans. Within months, it adapted to its new host, starting with US soldiers in World War I military camps and spreading rapidly from person to person. This influenza virus killed more people than any other plague in history. In 24 weeks it killed more people than AIDS has killed in 24 years. The 1918 epidemic killed at least 50 million people and perhaps as many as 100 million. The world's population then was only 28% of today's; a comparable death toll today would be 175 million to 325 million.

21 The Scramble for Influenza Vaccine in 2010 (Editorial) - Marc Mendelson
Auteur : Marc Mendelson
Genre : Forme et santé
In 2009 South Africa, like the rest of the world, experienced the 'swine flu' pandemic caused by influenza A (H1N1) 2009 virus (H1N1). The influenza epidemic curve for South Africa during 2009 testified to the introduction of the virus, as it superseded the influenza A H3N2 strain (H3N2) as the predominant circulating virus at the end of the season. (1) Predicting patterns of influenza is difficult, and although most influenza cases in South Africa in 2010 may also be due to H1N1, it is uncertain to what degree H3N2 and influenza B will play their parts. Mercifully, H1N1 in 2009 caused mild influenza-like illness (ILI) in most infected persons; with 12 640 laboratory-confirmed cases (a portion of the true number), only 93 laboratory-confirmed H1N1-associated deaths occurred.

25 Preparing for an Influenza Pandemic - Lewis R. Goldfrank
Auteur : Lewis R. Goldfrank
Genre : Forme et santé
During an influenza pandemic, healthcare workers will be on the front lines delivering care to patients and preventing further spread of the disease. As the nation prepares for pandemic influenza, multiple avenues for protecting the health of the public are being carefully considered, ranging from rapid development of appropriate vaccines to quarantine plans should the need arise for their implementation. One vital aspect of pandemic influenza planning is the use of personal protective equipment (PPE)—the respirators, gowns, gloves, face shields, eye protection, and other equipment that will be used by healthcare workers and others in their day-to-day patient care responsibilities.
However, efforts to appropriately protect healthcare workers from illness or from infecting their families and their patients are greatly hindered by the paucity of data on the transmissio

29 The Influenza Pandemic of 1918 - Claire O'Neal

In 1918, the deadliest virus in human history struck worldwide with hardly any warning. A victim of the Spanish flu could wake up healthy and fall down dead the same day. In the United States, so many people fell ill that schools and churches closed. There werent enough healthy doctors and nurses to care for the sick, or enough healthy gravediggers to bury the dead. When U.S. troops joined World War I that year, they couldnt have imagined that more soldiers would die from the flu than fighting. The Spanish flu claimed between 50 million and 100 million lives globally in less than a year. Now, less than a century later, new strains of bird flu are killing people in Asia in much the same way. Are we on the verge of another deadly pandemic?

34 L'estasi dell'influenza - Jonathan Lethem
Auteur : Jonathan Lethem
Genre : Arts et disciplines linguistiques
Quale è il ruolo dello scrittore – se ha un ruolo – nella cultura contemporanea? Quello della termite o quello dell’elefante?

Gli elefanti bianchi si sentono “obbligati ad aggirarsi con fare autorevole, disdegnando ogni occasione di giocosità e distrazione, irrigidendosi in un encausto di spocchia nell’attesa che la giusta giovane termite, che aspira a essere elefante, cominci a sparare loro con un fucile da caccia grossa.” Naturalmente i due modelli – la termite e l’elefante – possono sovrapporsi e incrociarsi, anche in uno stesso scrittore e persino nello stesso Jonathan Lethem. Ma non c’è dubbio che – nonostante qualche legittima aspirazione all’elefantismo bianco – Lethem in

Auteur : David A. Relman
Genre : Médecine
In March and early April 2009, a new, swine-origin 2009-H1N1 influenza A virus emerged in Mexico and the United States. During the first few weeks of surveillance, the virus spread by human-to-human transmission worldwide to over 30 countries. On June 11, 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) raised the worldwide pandemic alert level to Phase 6 in response to the ongoing global spread of the novel influenza A (H1N1) virus. By October 30, 2009, the H1N1 influenza A had spread to 191 countries and resulted in 5,700 fatalities. A national emergency was declared in the United States and the swine flu joined SARS and the avian flu as pandemics of the 21st century. Vaccination is currently available, but in limited supply, and with a 60 percent effectiveness rate against the virus.

Auteur : Jürgen A. Richt & Richard J. Webby
Genre : Médecine
The central role which swine have played in the ecology of influenza is set out in this book in 15 chapters within a comprehensive international framework. The result is a ‘One Health’ perspective on the role of swine influenza viruses (SIVs) at the animal-human-environmental interface.  The epidemiology of swine influenza worldwide is now of exceptional importance with the pig potentially acting as a “mixing vessel” where both avian and human influenza viruses can undergo genetic reassortment resulting in the creation of novel viruses that can cross species barriers.

The genetic features of SIVs with either limited or efficient spread to and between humans are largely unknown, but the host range barrier between human and swine highlights the fact that adaptation of a virus in one mammalian host does not necessarily mean that it is well adapted to replication in

With accelerated levels of commercial and population mobility, new forms of flu virus can also spread across the globe with unprecedented speed. Responding quickly and adequately to each outbreak becomes imperative on the part of governments and global public health organizations, but the difficulties of doing so are legion. One tool for pandemic planning is analysis of responses to past pandemics that provide insight into productive ways forward. This book investigates past influenza pandemics in light of today's, so as to afford critical insights into possible transmission patterns, experiences, mistakes, and interventions. It explores several pandemics over the past century, from the

42 Influenza.pages - Dr Thomas Nenninger
Auteur : Dr Thomas Nenninger
Genre : Forme et santé
Les virus occupent une position exceptionnelle entre organismes vivants et non vivants. Ne disposant pas de l’ensemble de la machinerie moléculaire nécessaire à leur propre reproduction, ils doivent détourner le fonctionnement des cellules de leur hôte (plantes, champignons, bactéries, animal) de façon à leur faire fabriquer des copies virales. Dans certains cas, ce processus peut entraîner les cellules hôtes dans une multiplication incontrôlée, c’est-à-dire une tumeur. Du fait de leur très petite taille, la découverte des virus est extrêmement récente dans l’histoire de l’humanité. À la fin du XIXe siècle, Ivanovski, un biologiste russe travaillant sur la maladie de la mosaïque du tabac soupçonne l’existence d’un élément infectant dont la taille serait inférieure à celle des bactéries (qu’il filtre). Cependant ce n'est qu’en 1930 que des virus

Intorduction When your coworker or a patient is coughing, sneezing and blowing their nose, do you wonder, "Are Standard Precautions enough?" Many people are not sure how much of a threat influenza is, how to identify people with the flu, and what action to take if a member of the dental team or a patient is contagious. News of deadly new strains of influenza, such as the "bird flu," is a worldwide concern. In addition, a dental office should be safe and clean, so that even highly susceptible patients or workers are protected. This course will describe seasonal and avian influenza, suggest how to recognize flu, and present facts about prevention and treatment of both "bird flu" and the more certain occurrence of seasonal flu.

47 Examining U.S. Public Health Preparedness for: and Response Efforts to - Seasonal Influenza - Better Flu Vaccines and Treatment Medications, Preventing Illness, Hospitalizations, and Mortality - Progressive Management
Auteur : Progressive Management
Genre : Médecine
This important House hearing heard from witnesses about the U.S. level of preparedness for dealing with seasonal influenza. Representative Harper noted in his opening statement: Influenza is a leading cause of death in the United States, especially in a severe flu season. Every year, thousands of Americans die from the flu and thousands more are hospitalized from flu-related complications. Since 2010, the flu has caused between 12,000 and 56,000 deaths per year. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting your flu shot. Millions of Americans receive a flu shot every year to help protect them against this illness. Unfortunately, there are many Americans that do not do that. Last year, only 59 percent of children and about 43 percent of adults received flu vaccination.

Even though only a little over half of Americans typically get vaccinated, CDC estimates that flu vaccination

48 Studies on Epidemic Influenza: Comprising Clinical and Laboratory Investigations - University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
Auteur : University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
Genre : Médecine
The history of epidemic influenza extends back with definite authenticity to the Middle Ages, with a fair amount of assurance to the beginning of the Christian Era and with presumptive reliability even before that period. Beyond this statement, nothing definite can be said until the first epidemic reported by Short and found in the English Annals in the year 1510. This, the first reliable record, presented some features not unlike those occurring in the present epidemic. Two or three striking things stand out in this record—namely, the presence of nose bleed, pneumonia and the very great danger to gravid women. Here, for the first time, the meteorological conditions were elaborately studied and persistently dwelt upon. One other impressive thing, also reported by Short, was that in 1580 the disease showed a tendency to return after a period of quiescence. Attention is called to this be

49 Insight into Influenza Viruses of Animals and Humans - Sanjay Kapoor & Kuldeep Dhama
Auteur : Sanjay Kapoor & Kuldeep Dhama
Genre : Médecine
This book provides salient information on all aspects of influenza/flu viruses affecting animals and humans. It specifically reviews the properties and replication of influenza viruses; their evolution and emergence; epidemiology; role of migratory birds in disease transmission; clinical signs in humans, animals, and poultry; pathogenesis and pathogenicity; public health importance and potential threats; diagnosis; prevention and control measures; and pandemic preparedness.

Influenza/flu viruses evolve continuously and jump species causing epidemics as well as pandemics in both human and animals. During the past 150 years, various strains of influenza virus like the Spanish flu, Asian flu, Hong Kong flu, bird flu, and swine flu were responsible for high mortality in humans as well as birds. High mutation rates, antigenic shifts, drifts, reassortment phenomena, and the developm

50 The Doctors and the 'Flu': The British Medical Profession's Response to the Influenza Pandemic of 1918-19 (Report) - International Social Science Review
Auteur : International Social Science Review
Genre : Sciences sociales
The development of medicine and its practitioners is a continuous process. In order to assess its state at any particular time, one must find a way to bring all of its activities, theoretical and practical, into focus. Asa Briggs, one of the preeminent British historians of the last half century, has correctly suggested that epidemics provide a lens that does this. (1) Doctors, whether in public service, private practice, or engaged in research, must face the crisis. Their very best efforts and tools are required and tested. Under such circumstances, particular talents are highlighted. At the same time, inadequacies in efficiency, skill, and learning that might easily go unnoticed under normal conditions become glaring faults. The influenza pandemic of 1918-19, due to its unusual virulence, gave a particularly clear focus to the status of the medical profession worldwide. Our understa
