In a report on Tuesday, CNN's Sanjay Gupta cited the CDC saying that there were six patients being watched for the deadly virus. From there news agencies across the country reported that there were six just in New York. Gupta did not specify New York, though, and it seems that his words were misconstrued by subsequent reports.
A few hours after the conference, New York's Mr. Sinai corrected the record in a press release, saying that contrary to recent reports, "there is only one patient currently at Mount Sinai being tested for the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD)."
Sources in the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene confirmed that there was only one patient in New York City who was isolated for fear of the virus.
As to the five other patients, ABC News reported on Tuesday that "The CDC said has tested blood samples from six people with possible Ebola symptoms who had recently traveled to West Africa." The report did not specify where all six patients were, but did not suggest they were all in New York. In fact, the same ABC report mentions a case in Ohio, where a woman tested negative for the virus.
Additionally, the CDC reported that one patient at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland was tested for Ebola. While testing negative for Ebola, the woman was found to have contracted malaria.
This leaves three patients across the country that have been tested for Ebola, with the CDC not stating whether they tested positively or negatively, or where they are.
Good point D-girl, this just goes to show Dr.Kim and INO have there finger prints on so many things a lot of people are not aware of.
An experimental vaccine for Clostridium difficile provided protection in 100% of mice and monkeys that received it. With antibiotic resistance on the rise, the vaccine could be a valuable preventive measure against the infection, which kills about 30,000 Americans every year.
During the course of the study, the vaccine--after two immunizations--protected the animal models from the purified toxins produced by the C. difficile bacteria, and also from an orogastric spore infection. The research was published ahead of print in Infection and Immunity on July 14.
C. difficile infections can present disease symptoms as soon as 10 days from the onset of the infection. The vaccine guards against bacterial toxins by harnessing antitoxin neutralizing antibodies, according to the research.
Inovio and U Penn involved....Nice$
That's right that's why I've been loading the boat for the last 16 months. They can only hold it down for so long and then....BOOM! the pps will explode up into the $20s+ where it should be.

Speaking of the horrific moment the passenger collapsed, the shocked staff member added: “The woman was sweating buckets and vomiting.
“Paramedics arrived to try and help her. The next thing everybody was there… emergency crews, airfield operations, even immigration.
“They closed down the jet bridge and put the aircraft into quarantine.
“They took everyone’s details, even the guy who fuels the aircraft.”
The plane carrying the woman came from Freetown in Sierra Leone – a country with the highest number of victims from the disease.
It stopped at Banjul in The Gambia before landing in Gatwick at 8.15am on Saturday after a five-hour flight. Public Health England tried to allay fears of an Ebola breakout in Britain.
Airport staff tonight told of their fears of an Ebola outbreak after a passenger from Sierra Leone collapsed and died as she got off a plane at Gatwick.
Workers said they were terrified the virus could spread globally through the busy international hub from the West African country which is in the grip of the deadly epidemic.
The woman, said to be 72, became ill on the gangway after she left a Gambia Bird jet with 128 passengers on board. She died in hospital.
