But confirms why BARDA HHS should have a major stockpile of peramivir - new flu reassortments, no vaccine, just like H3N2v, antivirals are last resort if vaccines cannot stop spread, treatment for multiple cases will be needed. Should have hundreds of thousands of doses of IV antiviral in SNS. H5N1 H7N9 H3N2 H5N8
This is not a major concern, but demonstrates that borders are porous via land or air. It's not H2H yet, but this again demonstrates why an SNS is created...insurance. The govt. paid ~700 Mln for anthrax drugs for the SNS. They're supposed to carry 25% or antivirals for US population. Stonehouse says to expect a large order for Rapivab for stockpiling...outside events like this add more pressure to demonstrate are ability to respond.

H7N9 bird flu confirmed in B.C. resident who travelled to China
The first human case of H7N9 bird flu in North America has been confirmed in a woman from British Columbia who had recently visited China, federal health officials say.
The woman does not pose a risk to the public, officials said.
She was never sick enough to need to be hospitalized, and the strain does not spread easily between people, officials said.
...Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.'s deputy provincial health officer, said a second person who travelled with the person infected likely had avian flu and remains a suspect case.
Since the two showed symptoms within a day of each other, health officials said they're confident both were exposed to a common source of infection, such as waste at a live poultry market in China, rather than one person infecting the other.

"BCRX7535 and our other 2nd generation HAE assets"
This is why I am here.....love keeping up with flu and ebola and all while we wait, but this is all about HAE
if you do a quick google search of bcx7353, there are a bunch of exports from India to Sweden of the compound: 2-METHYL-PROPAUE-2-SULFINIC ACID (3-AMINO-4-FLUORO-PHENYL)-(3-CYANO-PHENYL)-METHYL)-AMIDE... not sure if it just randomly has the title bcx7353 or if that is relevant.
Now we know that Rapivab can be used off-label including pediatrics. We also know the CDC recommends critically ill patients to receive a 600 mg dose for 5 days straight (or more).
This presentation was given by the Dr. who is IN CHARGE of providing the CDC antiviral guidance:
"Dr. Campbell’s current primary research focuses on studies of influenza antiviral treatment and antiviral effectiveness and she is responsible for developing and revising the CDC clinical guidance related to treatment and prevention of seasonal and novel influenza viruses."
CDC predicts ~300,000 hospitalizations this season and Rapivab can be used in a lot more patients than we once knew.
"BCX4161 and our second generation molecules have the potential to significantly improve HAE patient treatment and their quality of life. We look forward to reporting results from OPuS-2 and sharing updates regarding BCX7353 and our other second generation HAE assets during 2015."
"Down cycles NEVER end in less than 4 weeks and it has only went negative for about 1 1/2 weeks. The MACD ALWAYS goes down and flattens out with the old head fake and then it breaks down one more time."
wrong again…you're batting 1000…
"Now come on. How long you been in this?"
long enough to know when it comes to biotech, technicals only work SOME of the time...
"BioCryst is enrolling HAE patients in the OPuS-2 trial of BCX4161; a double-blind, randomized, placebo controlled trial conducted in the U.S. and certain EU countries, with the goal of demonstrating the efficacy and safety of BCX4161 treatment for 12 weeks in approximately 100 patients with HAE. BioCryst expects to report results from OPuS-2 by the end of 2015."
cannonball! - line those shot glasses up for the shorts…who can't read.
actually, i'm in the southwest, played 18 yesterday- it was beautiful…thanks.
EOY or sooner? Are you an East Coast guy getting hit by the blizzard? Blizzards are not an excuse to kill a bottle of whiskey at 10am.
The designation awarded by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration means the drug developer can move the drug called BCX4161 through the development process faster, ideally bringing the drug to market sooner, meaning BioCryst can make money faster.
and make the shorts squeal louder...
"The Fast Track designation process of the FDA is designed to facilitate the development and expedite the review and approval of drugs intended to treat serious or life threatening conditions and that address unmet medical needs. A drug that receives Fast Track designation is usually eligible for more frequent written communication and meetings with the FDA to discuss the drug's development plan and the collection of appropriate data supporting drug approval. Priority Review and Rolling Review may be granted, if relevant criteria are met. Rolling Review allows a drug company to submit completed sections of its New Drug Application (NDA) for review by FDA on an ongoing basis, rather than wait until the entire NDA is completed and then reviewed."
approval by EOY…or sooner...
