Another dead microbiologist: University of South Florida biologist dies in an apparent suicide by cyanide

Tue, 16 Nov 2010 13:13 CST

Temple Terrace - A University of South Florida molecular biologist died Monday night in an apparent suicide by cyanide at a Temple Terrace hotel, police say.

Chitra Chauhan, 33, of 5125 Palms Springs Blvd. in Tampa, was pronounced dead at University Community Hospital about 10:30 p.m., according to the Temple Terrace Police Department. University officials released a statement saying they were saddened to learn of Chauhan's death. She was a post-doctoral researcher in the Global Health department in the College of Public Health. Police say that at about 8 p.m. Monday, emergency personnel were called to the Extended StayAmerica hotel at 12242 Morris Bridge Road after someone reported that a woman was having a heart attack. When they arrived, they found Chauhan in apparent distress.

They tried to resuscitate her and took her to the hospital, police said. Her cause of death is still under investigation, but witnesses at the hotel say that Chauhan had mentioned that she had cyanide. A suicide note was found at the scene.

Chauhan worked in the USF Center for Biological Defense and Global Health Infectious Disease Research, which is housed at the USF Research Park on the south end of campus  The center was created after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to study bioterrorism and emerging infections.

Security is tighter throughout the research park because work is done there with private companies and the Department of Defense.

Suicided Microbiologist told "witnesses" she had cyanide....

Temple Terrace, Florida -- The woman who apparently used the deadly chemical cyanide to take her own life at a hotel worked at a University of South Florida laboratory.

Chitra Chauhan, 33, died after being rushed to the hospital Monday night from the Extended Stay America hotel in Temple Terrace. She had apparently committed suicide, police say.

Before she died, police say Chauhan told witnesses she had cyanide with her. A white, crystalline powder was found in Chauhan's room, which tests showed to be cyanide, firefighters said.

Cyanide is a highly toxic substance that is found as a sugar-like powder and as a gas. It prevents cells from using oxygen, which can quickly kill those cells.

The University of South Florida says Chauhan was a researcher in the College of Public Health and released this statement Tuesday:

"The College of Public Health at the University of South Florida is saddened to learn of the death of post-doctoral researcher Chitra Chauhan, PhD (12.3.1976).

USF is working with the Temple Terrace police department as it investigates her death.

Dr. Chauhan was a molecular biologist doing research in global health at USF. She investigated treatments for tropical diseases common around the world, including malaria, viral encephalopathies and filariasis (caused by parasitic worms).

Potassium Cyanide, the apparent cause of death, is a chemical commonly used by universities in teaching chemistry and conducting research, but it was not used in the research projects she was working on. USF is currently reviewing how she obtained this chemical.

The university will notify the community of public memorial services."

====================================================

She "TOLD WITNESSES SHE HAD CYANIDE WITH HER".

(Why, if she is planning to commit suicide, did she say, "hey you - I have cyanide on me" - that is such BULLSH*T!)

This meant that after she died, they had to EVACUATE the hotel, and send in a CLEAN-UP CREW.

They had to CLEAN UP THE CRIME SCENE.

So what did she know about malaria and viral encephalopathies - mosquito-borne diseases?

New Vaccine for Malaria and Cholera Developed Using Plants!
http://www.americanchronicle.com/articles/printFriendly/138740

A biomedical researcher at the University of Central Florida, (UCF) has developed the first low-cost vaccine capable of eradicating malaria and cholera. He accomplished this feat by using botanical techniques to grow the vaccine, which was later injected into experimental mice. The use of plants to develop the vaccine made it very cheap to produce, which is great news for peoples of developing and underdeveloped countries, who will not have any problem buying this vaccine, (UCF). The plant-grown vaccine is very cheap to develop because it requires less labor and technology, (UCF). (continued) (http://www.americanchronicle.com/articles/printFriendly/138740)

Affordable cholera vaccine closer to reality
http://www.scidev.net/en/news/affordable-cholera-vaccine-closer-to-reality.html
9 October 2009 | EN | FR

A cheap cholera vaccine is getting closer to international distribution after proving safe and effective in a large clinical trial.

The results, published today (9 October) in The Lancet, build on last year's encouraging results of a pilot trial of the vaccine (see Cheaper cholera vaccine passes pilot trial).

About sixty-seven thousand people aged one year or older living in cholera-prone Kolkata, India, completed the trial, receiving two doses of either vaccine or a placebo.

After two years, the vaccine had reduced cholera cases by around two-thirds in vaccinated people, was equally effective in all age groups and had no serious side effects.

Oral vaccines for cholera, which is caused by Vibrio cholerae bacteria, are available but often too expensive for endemic countries' public health programmes.

GM mosquito wild release takes campaigners by surprise

Katherine Nightingale

11 November 2010 | EN | 中文
Cayman Islands

GM mosquitoes were released on the islands last year — but only publicised last month

Experts in the safety of genetically modified (GM) organisms have expressed concern over the release of GM mosquitoes into the wild on the Cayman Islands, which was publicised internationally only last month — a year after their initial release.

The trial of the OX513A strain of the dengue-carrying Aedes aegypti mosquito, developed by UK biotechnology company Oxitec, was carried out on Grand Cayman island by the Cayman Islands' Mosquito Research and Control Unit (MRCU) in 2009, followed by a bigger release between May and October this year. Together they represent the first known release of GM mosquitoes anywhere in the world.

Unpublished results of the trials, showing that the GM male mosquitoes competed with wild males, were presented at the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene annual meeting in the United States, last week (4 November).

You know, this is probably not related but when I was at uni one of my lecturers (a toxicology specialist) killed himself with suicide.
He almost killed his student girlfriend when she tried to give him mouth to mouth.
He was a bit crazy - like most uni scientists i know, but he got real down about something before this. I knew him well, often went out for a drink , didnt seem like something he would have done.

This is sad I read the article last night and I knew she was murdered. This is why if your in this line of work you have to make your work known to a number of people. So you don't turn up dead and if you do some one can expose your work. whatever she was working on im sure will come to light, she had to have told someone.

Well if saving files is what needs to be done then people need to start doing it. They are killing off the people that would possibly be able to help humanity. It will get to the point where people will stop trying if they know this will happen to them.

Cholera
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Cholera
Classification and external resources

Cholera is an infection of the small intestine caused by the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. The main symptoms are profuse watery diarrhea and vomiting. Transmission is primarily through consuming contaminated drinking water or food. The severity of the diarrhea and vomiting can lead to rapid dehydration and electrolyte imbalance. Primary treatment is with oral rehydration solution and if these are not tolerated, intravenous fluids. Antibiotics are beneficial in those with severe disease. Worldwide it affects 3-5 million people and causes 100,000-130,000 deaths a year as of 2010. Cholera was one of the earliest infections to be studied by epidemiological methods.

 

[edit] Signs and symptoms
 
A person with severe dehydration due to cholera. Note the sunken eyes and decreased skin turgor which produces wrinkled handsThe primary symptoms of cholera are profuse painless diarrhea and vomiting of clear fluid.[1] These symptoms usually start suddenly, one to five days after ingestion of the bacteria.[1] The diarrhea is frequently described as "rice water" in nature and may have a fishy odor.[1] An untreated person with cholera may produce 10-20 liters of diarrhea a day.[1] For every symptomatic person there are 3 to 100 people who get the infection but remain asymptomatic.[2]

If the severe diarrhea and vomiting are not aggressively treated it can, within hours, result in dehydration and electrolyte imbalances.[1] The typical symptoms of dehydration include: low blood pressure, poor skin turgor (wrinkled hands), sunken eyes, and a rapid pulse.[1]

[edit] Cause
Main article: Vibrio cholerae
 
TEM image of Vibrio choleraeCholera is caused by the bacteria Vibrio cholerae mainly of the serogroup O1 but also possible of serogroup O139.[3] Transmission is primarily due to the fecal contamination of food and water due to poor sanitation.[3] This bacteria can however live naturally in aquatic environments.[4]

[edit] Susceptibility
About one hundred million bacteria must typically be ingested to cause cholera in a normal healthy adult.[1] This dose however is less in those with lower gastric acidity ( from proton pump inhibitors etc. ).[1] Children are also more susceptible with 2 to 4 year olds having the highest rates of infection.[1]

It has been hypothesized that the cystic fibrosis genetic mutation has been maintained in humans due to a selective advantage: heterozygous carriers of the mutation (who are thus not affected by cystic fibrosis) are more resistant to V. cholerae infections.[5] In this model, the genetic deficiency in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator channel proteins interferes with bacteria binding to the gastrointestinal epithelium, thus reducing the effects of an infection.

An individual's susceptibility to cholera is affected by their blood type with those with type O blood being the most susceptible.[1][6]

[edit] Transmission
 
Drawing of Death bringing the cholera, in Le Petit JournalCholera is typically transmitted by either contaminated food or water. In the developed world seafood is the usual cause while in the developing world it is more often water.[1] Cholera has been found in only two other animal populations: shellfish and plankton.[1]

People infected with cholera often have diarrhea and if this highly liquid stool, colloquially referred to as "rice-water," contaminates water used by others transmission may occur.[7] The source of the contamination is typically other cholera sufferers when their untreated diarrhoea discharge is allowed to get into waterways or into groundwater or drinking water supplies. Any infected water and any foods washed in the water, as well as shellfish living in the affected waterway, can cause an infection. Cholera is rarely spread directly from person to person. Both toxic and non-toxic strains exist. Non-toxic strains can acquire toxicity through a lysogenic bacteriophage.[8] Coastal cholera outbreaks typically follow zooplankton blooms, thus making cholera a zoonotic disease.

[edit] Mechanism
 This section is incomplete and may require expansion or cleanup. Please help to improve the article, or discuss the issue on the talk page.

Most bacteria when consumed do not survive the acidic conditions of the human stomach.[9] The few bacteria that do survive conserve their energy and stored nutrients during the passage through the stomach by shutting down much protein production. When the surviving bacteria exit the stomach and reach the small intestine, they need to propel themselves through the thick mucus that lines the small intestine to get to the intestinal wall where they can thrive. V. cholerae bacteria start up production of the hollow cylindrical protein flagellin to make flagella, the curly whip-like tails that they rotate to propel themselves through the mucus of the small intestine.

Once the cholera bacteria reach the intestinal wall, they do not need the flagella propellers to move any longer. The bacteria stop producing the protein flagellin, thus again conserving energy and nutrients by changing the mix of proteins which they manufacture in response to the changed chemical surroundings. On reaching the intestinal wall, V. cholerae start producing the toxic proteins that give the infected person a watery diarrhea. This carries the multiplying new generations of V. cholerae bacteria out into the drinking water of the next host if proper sanitation measures are not in place.

The cholera toxin (CTX or CT) is an oligomeric complex made up of six protein subunits: a single copy of the A subunit (part A), and five copies of the B subunit (part B), connected by a disulfide bond. The five B subunits form a five-membered ring that binds to GM1 gangliosides on the surface of the intestinal epithelium cells. The A1 portion of the A subunit is an enzyme that ADP-ribosylates G proteins, while the A2 chain fits into the central pore of the B subunit ring. Upon binding, the complex is taken into the cell via receptor-mediated endocytosis. Once inside the cell, the disulfide bond is reduced and the A1 subunit is freed to bind with a human partner protein called ADP-ribosylation factor 6 (Arf6).[10] Binding exposes its active site, allowing it to permanently ribosylate the Gs alpha subunit of the heterotrimeric G protein. This results in constitutive cAMP production, which in turn leads to secretion of H2O, Na+, K+, Cl−, and HCO3− into the lumen of the small intestine and rapid dehydration. The gene encoding the cholera toxin is introduced into V. cholerae by horizontal gene transfer. Virulent strains of V. cholerae carry a variant of lysogenic bacteriophage called CTXf or CTXφ.

 
Cholera Toxin. The delivery region (blue) binds membrane carbohydrates to get into cells. The toxic part (red) is activated inside the cell (PDB code: 1xtc).Microbiologists have studied the genetic mechanisms by which the V. cholerae bacteria turn off the production of some proteins and turn on the production of other proteins as they respond to the series of chemical environments they encounter, passing through the stomach, through the mucous layer of the small intestine, and on to the intestinal wall.[11] Of particular interest have been the genetic mechanisms by which cholera bacteria turn on the protein production of the toxins that interact with host cell mechanisms to pump chloride ions into the small intestine, creating an ionic pressure which prevents sodium ions from entering the cell. The chloride and sodium ions create a salt-water environment in the small intestines, which through osmosis can pull up to six liters of water per day through the intestinal cells, creating the massive amounts of diarrhea. The host can become rapidly dehydrated if an appropriate mixture of dilute salt water and sugar is not taken to replace the blood's water and salts lost in the diarrhea.

By inserting separate, successive sections of V. cholerae DNA into the DNA of other bacteria such as E. coli that would not naturally produce the protein toxins, researchers have investigated the mechanisms by which V. cholerae responds to the changing chemical environments of the stomach, mucous layers, and intestinal wall. Researchers have discovered that there is a complex cascade of regulatory proteins that control expression of V. cholerae virulence determinants. In responding to the chemical environment at the intestinal wall, the V. cholerae bacteria produce the TcpP/TcpH proteins, which, together with the ToxR/ToxS proteins, activate the expression of the ToxT regulatory protein. ToxT then directly activates expression of virulence genes that produce the toxins that cause diarrhea in the infected person and that permit the bacteria to colonize the intestine.[11] Current research aims at discovering "the signal that makes the cholera bacteria stop swimming and start to colonize (that is, adhere to the cells of) the small intestine."[11]

[edit] Diagnosis
In epidemic situations, a clinical diagnosis may be made by taking a history and doing a brief examination. Treatment is usually started without or before confirmation by laboratory analysis.

A rapid dip-stick test is available to determine the presence of V. cholerae.[4] In those that test positive further testing should be done to determine antibiotic resistance.[4]

Stool and swab samples collected in the acute stage of the disease, before antibiotics have been administered, are the most useful specimens for laboratory diagnosis. If an epidemic of cholera is suspected, the most common causative agent is Vibrio cholerae O1. If V. cholerae serogroup O1 is not isolated, the laboratory should test for V. cholerae O139. However, if neither of these organisms is isolated, it is necessary to send stool specimens to a reference laboratory. Infection with V. cholerae O139 should be reported and handled in the same manner as that caused by V. cholerae O1. The associated diarrheal illness should be referred to as cholera and must be reported in the United States.[12]

A number of special media have been employed for the cultivation for cholera vibrios. They are classified as follows:

[edit] Enrichment media
Alkaline peptone water at pH 8.6
Monsur's taurocholate tellurite peptone water at pH 9.2
[edit] Plating media
Alkaline bile salt agar (BSA): The colonies are very similar to those on nutrient agar.
Monsur's gelatin Tauro cholate trypticase tellurite agar (GTTA) medium: Cholera vibrios produce small translucent colonies with a greyish black centre.
TCBS medium: This the mostly widely used medium. This medium contains thiosulphate, citrate, bile salts and sucrose. Cholera vibrios produce flat 2–3 mm in diameter, yellow nucleated colonies.
Direct microscopy of stool is not recommended as it is unreliable. Microscopy is preferred only after enrichment, as this process reveals the characteristic motility of Vibrios and its inhibition by appropriate antiserum. Diagnosis can be confirmed as well as serotyping done by agglutination with specific sera.

[edit] Prevention
 
Cholera hospital in Dhaka, showing typical cholera beds.Although cholera may be life-threatening, prevention of the disease is normally straightforward if proper sanitation practices are followed. In developed countries, due to nearly universal advanced water treatment and sanitation practices, cholera is no longer a major health threat. The last major outbreak of cholera in the United States occurred in 1910-1911.[13][14] Effective sanitation practices, if instituted and adhered to in time, are usually sufficient to stop an epidemic. There are several points along the cholera transmission path at which its spread may be halted:

Sterilization: Proper disposal and treatment of infected faecal waste water produced by cholera victims and all contaminated materials (e.g. clothing, bedding, etc.) is essential. All materials that come in contact with cholera patients should be sterilized by washing in hot water using chlorine bleach if possible. Hands that touch cholera patients or their clothing, bedding, etc., should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected with chlorinated water or other effective anti-microbial agents.
Sewage: anti-bacterial treatment of general sewage by chlorine, ozone, ultra-violet light or other effective treatment before it enters the waterways or underground water supplies helps prevent undiagnosed patients from inadvertently spreading the disease.
Sources: Warnings about possible cholera contamination should be posted around contaminated water sources with directions on how to decontaminate the water (boiling, chlorination etc.) for possible use.
Water purification: All water used for drinking, washing, or cooking should be sterilized by either boiling, chlorination, ozone water treatment, ultra-violet light sterilization (e.g. by solar water disinfection), or anti-microbial filtration in any area where cholera may be present. Chlorination and boiling are often the least expensive and most effective means of halting transmission. Cloth filters, though very basic, have significantly reduced the occurrence of cholera when used in poor villages in Bangladesh that rely on untreated surface water. Better anti-microbial filters like those present in advanced individual water treatment hiking kits are most effective. Public health education and adherence to appropriate sanitation practices are of primary importance to help prevent and control transmission of cholera and other diseases.
[edit] Surveillance
Surveillance and prompt reporting allow for containing cholera epidemics rapidly. Cholera exists as a seasonal disease in many endemic countries, occurring annually mostly during rainy seasons. Surveillance systems can provide early alerts to outbreaks, therefore leading to coordinated response and assist in preparation of preparedness plans. Efficient surveillance systems can also improve the risk assessment for potential cholera outbreaks. Understanding the seasonality and location of outbreaks provide guidance for improving cholera control activities for the most vulnerable.[15] For prevention to be effective it is important that cases are reported to national health authorities.[1]

[edit] Vaccine
A number of safe and effective oral vaccines for cholera are available.[3][16] Dukoral an orally administered inactivated whole cell vaccine has an efficacy of 85% with minimal side effects.[17] It is available in over 60 countries. However, it is not currently recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for most people traveling from the United States to the third world.[18] One injectable vaccine was found to be effective for 2–3 years.[16] It however has limited availability as of 2010.[3] Work is under way to investigate the role of mass vaccination.[19] The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends immunization of high risk groups such as children and people with HIV in countries where this disease is endemic.[3] If people are immunized broadly herd immunity results with a decrease in the amount of contamination in the environment.[4]

[edit] Treatment
 
Cholera patient being treated by medical staff in 1992.[edit] Fluids
In most cases cholera can be successfully treated with oral rehydration therapy (ORT) which is highly effective, safe, and simple to administer.[4] Rice based solutions are preferred to glucose based ones due to greater efficacy.[4] In severe cases with significant dehydration intravenous rehydration may be necessary. Ringer's lactate is the preferred solution.[1] Large volumes and continued replacement until diarrhea has subsided may be needed.[1] 10% of a person's body weight in fluid may need to be given in the first 2 to 4 hours.[1]

If commercially produced oral rehydration solutions are too expensive or difficult to obtain, solutions can be made. One such recipe calls for 1 liter of boiled water, 1 teaspoon of salt, 8 teaspoons of sugar, and added mashed banana for potassium and to improve taste.[20]

[edit] Electrolytes
As there frequently is initially acidosis, the potassium level may be normal even though large losses have occurred.[1] As the dehydration is corrected potassium levels may decrease rapidly and thus need to be replaced.[1]

[edit] Antibiotics
Antibiotics for 1 to 3 days shorten the course of the disease and reduce the severity of the symptoms.[1] People will however recover without them if sufficient hydration is maintained.[4] Doxycycline is typically used first line, although some strains of V. cholerae have shown resistance.[1] Testing for resistance during an outbreak can help determine appropriate future choices.[1] Other antibiotics that have been proven effective include cotrimoxazole, erythromycin, tetracycline, chloramphenicol, and furazolidone.[21] Fluoroquinolones such as norfloxacin also may be used, but resistance has been reported.[22]

In many areas of the world antibiotic resistance is increasing. In Bangladesh for example most cases of V. Cholerea are resistant to tetracycline, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, and erythromycin.[4] Rapid diagnostic assay methods are available for the identification of multi-drug resistant cases.[23] New generation antimicrobials have been discovered which are effective against V. cholerae in in vitro studies.[24]

[edit] Prognosis
If people with cholera are treated quickly and properly, the mortality rate is less than 1%; however, with untreated cholera, the mortality rate rises to 50–60%.[1][25]

[edit] Epidemiology
It is estimated that worldwide cholera affects 3-5 million people and causes 100,000-130,000 deaths a year as of 2010.[3] This occurs mainly in the developing world.[26] In the early 1980s death rates are believed to have been greater than 3 million a year.[1] It is difficult to calculate exact numbers of cases as many go unreported due to concerns that an outbreak may have a negative impact on the tourism of a country.[4] Cholera remains both epidemic and endemic in many areas of the world.[1]

Although much is known about the mechanisms behind the spread of cholera, this has not led to a full understanding of what makes cholera outbreaks happen some places and not others. Lack of treatment of human feces and lack of treatment of drinking water greatly facilitate its spread, but bodies of water can serve as a reservoir and seafood shipped long distances can spread the disease. Cholera was not known in the Americas for most of the 20th century, but it reappeared towards the end of that century and seems likely to persist.[27]

[edit] History
Cholera likely has its origins in the Indian subcontinent being prevalent in the Ganges delta since ancient times.[1] The disease first spread by trade routes (land and sea) to Russia in 1817, then to Western Europe, and from Europe to North America.[1] John Snow in 1854 was the first to identify the importance of contaminated water in its cause.[1] Cholera became the first reportable disease in the United States due to the significant effects it had on health.[1] Cholera is now no longer considered a pressing health threat in Europe and North America due to filtering and chlorination of water supplies, but still heavily affects populations in developing countries.

[edit] Etymology
The word cholera is from Greek: χολέρα kholera from χολή kholē "bile".

[edit] Pandemics
 
Hand bill from the New York City Board of Health, 1832. The outdated public health advice demonstrates the lack of understanding of the disease and its actual causative factors.1816-1826 - First cholera pandemic: Previously restricted, the pandemic began in Bengal, and then spread across India by 1820. 10,000 British troops, and many times this number of Indians, died during this pandemic.[28] The cholera outbreak extended as far as China, Indonesia (where more than 100,000 people succumbed on the island of Java alone) and the Caspian Sea before receding. Deaths in India between 1817 and 1860 are estimated to have exceeded 15 million people. Another 23 million died between 1865 and 1917. Russian deaths during a similar time period exceeded 2 million.[29]
1829-1851 - Second cholera pandemic reached Russia (see Cholera Riots), Hungary (about 100,000 deaths) and Germany in 1831, London (more than 55,000 people died in the United Kingdom)[30] and Paris in 1832. In London, the disease claimed 6,536 victims and came to be known as "King Cholera"; in Paris, 20,000 succumbed (out of a population of 650,000) with about 100,000 deaths in all of France.[31] The epidemic reached Quebec, Ontario and New York in the same year and the Pacific coast of North America by 1834.[32] The 1831 cholera epidemic killed 150,000 people in Egypt.[33] In 1846, cholera struck Mecca, killing over 15,000 people.[34] A two-year outbreak began in England and Wales in 1848 and claimed 52,000 lives.[35]
1849 - Second major outbreak in Paris. In London, it was the worst outbreak in the city's history, claiming 14,137 lives, over twice as many as the 1832 outbreak. Cholera hit Ireland in 1849 and killed many of the Irish Famine survivors already weakened by starvation and fever.[36] In 1849 cholera claimed 5,308 lives in the port city of Liverpool, England, and 1,834 in Hull, England.[31] An outbreak in North America took the life of former U.S. President James K. Polk. Cholera, believed spread from ship(s) from England, spread throughout the Mississippi river system killing over 4,500 in St. Louis[31] and over 3,000 in New Orleans[31] as well as thousands in New York.[31] It claimed 200,000 victims in Mexico.[37] In 1849 cholera was spread along the California, Mormon and Oregon Trails as 6,000 to 12,000[38] are believed to have died on their way to the California Gold Rush, Utah and Oregon in the cholera years of 1849-1855.[31] It is believed that over 150,000 Americans died during the two pandemics between 1832 and 1849.[39][40]
1852-1860 - Third cholera pandemic mainly affected Russia, with over a million deaths. In 1852, cholera spread east to Indonesia and later invaded China and Japan in 1854. The Philippines were infected in 1858 and Korea in 1859. In 1859, an outbreak in Bengal once again led to the transmission of the disease to Iran, Iraq, Arabia and Russia.[34] There were at least seven major outbreaks of cholera in Japan between 1858 and 1902. The Ansei outbreak of 1858-60, for example, is believed to have killed between 100,000 and 200,000 people in Tokyo alone.[41]
1854 - Outbreak of cholera in Chicago took the lives of 5.5% of the population (about 3,500 people).[31][42] In 1853-4, London's epidemic claimed 10,738 lives. The Soho outbreak in London ended after removal of the handle of the Broad Street pump by a committee instigated to action by John Snow.[43] This proved that contaminated water (although it didn't identify the contaminant) was the main agent spreading cholera. It would take many years for this message to be believed and acted upon. Throughout Spain, cholera caused more than 236,000 deaths in 1854–55.[44] In 1854 and 1855 it entered Venezuela; Brazil also suffered in 1855.[37]
1863-1875 - Fourth cholera pandemic spread mostly in Europe and Africa. At least 30,000 of the 90,000 Mecca pilgrims fell victim to the disease. Cholera ravaged Africa in 1865. Traveling southeastwards, cholera reached Zanzibar, where 70,000 people are reported to have died in 1869–70.[45] Cholera claimed 90,000 lives in Russia in 1866.[46] The epidemic of cholera that spread with the Austro-Prussian War (1866) is estimated to have claimed 165,000 lives in the Austrian Empire.[47] Hungary and Belgium both lost 30,000 people and in the Netherlands 20,000 perished. In 1867, Italy lost 113,000 lives.[48] That same year, cholera traveled to Algeria and killed 80,000.[45]
 
1892 cholera outbreak in Hamburg, hospital ward
1892 cholera outbreak in Hamburg, disinfection team1866 - 1873 - Outbreaks in North America. It killed some 50,000 Americans.[39] In London, a localized epidemic in the East End claimed 5,596 lives just as London was completing its major sewage and water treatment systems—the East End was not quite complete. William Farr, using the work of John Snow et al. as to contaminated drinking water being the likely source of the disease, was able to relatively quickly identify the East London Water Company as the source of the contaminated water. Quick action prevented further deaths.[31] Also a minor outbreak at Ystalyfera in South Wales. Caused by the local water works using contaminated canal water, it was mainly its workers and their families who suffered, 119 died. In the same year more than 21,000 people died in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. In the 1870s, cholera spread in the US as epidemic from New Orleans along the Mississippi River and related ports of tributaries, with thousands dying.
1881-1896 - Fifth cholera pandemic; According to Dr A. J. Wall, the 1883-1887 epidemic cost 250,000 lives in Europe and at least 50,000 in Americas. Cholera claimed 267,890 lives in Russia (1892);[49] 120,000 in Spain;[50] 90,000 in Japan and over 60,000 in Persia.[49] In Egypt cholera claimed more that 58,000 lives. The 1892 outbreak in Hamburg killed 8,600 people. Although generally held responsible for the virulence of the epidemic, the city government went largely unchanged. This was the last serious European cholera outbreak.
1899-1923 - Sixth cholera pandemic had little effect in Europe because of advances in public health, but major Russian cities (more than 500,000 people dying of cholera during the first quarter of the 20th century)[51] and the Ottoman Empire were particularly hard hit by cholera deaths. The 1902-1904 cholera epidemic claimed 200,000 lives in the Philippines.[52] 27 epidemics were recorded during pilgrimages to Mecca from the 19th century to 1930, and more than 20,000 pilgrims died of cholera during the 1907–08 hajj.[51] The sixth pandemic killed more than 800,000 in India. The last outbreak in the United States was in 1910-1911 when the steamship Moltke brought infected people to New York City. Vigilant health authorities isolated the infected on Swinburne Island. Eleven people died, including a health care worker on Swinburne Island.[13][14][53]
1961–Present - Seventh cholera pandemic began in Indonesia, called El Tor[1] after the strain, and reached East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) in 1963, India in 1964, and the USSR in 1966. From North Africa it spread into Italy by 1973. In the late 1970s, there were small outbreaks in Japan and in the South Pacific. There were also many reports of a cholera outbreak near Baku in 1972, but information about it was suppressed in the USSR.
Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) fingerprinting of the pandemic isolates of Vibrio cholerae has revealed variation in the genetic structure. Two clusters have been identified: Cluster I and Cluster II. For the most part Cluster I consists of strains from the 1960s and 1970s, while Cluster II largely contains strains from the 1980s and 1990s, based on the change in the clone structure. This grouping of strains is best seen in the strains from the African Continent.[54]
[edit] Notable outbreaks
 
By 12 February 2009, the number of cases of infection by cholera in sub-Saharan Africa had reached 128,548 and the number of fatalities, 4,053.November 2010 - In November of 2010, it was reported that the cholera outbreak that began in Haiti the previous month had spread into the Dominican Republic. It was also reported that the cholera outbreak has reached Florida from a woman who had visited Haiti.
October 2010 - In late October a cholera outbreak was reported in Haiti, and as of November 16th the Haitian Health Ministry reported the number of dead to be 1,034, with hospitalizations for cholera symptoms totaling over 16,700.[55] It is feared that the epidemic could accelerate due to standing water left by a recent hurricane and the fact that over one-tenth of the population remain living in close quarters in tents in refugee camps without adequate sanitation since the Haiti earthquake in January.[56]
August 2010 - Nigeria is reaching epidemic proportions after wide spread confirmation of the Cholera outbreaks in 12 of its 36 states. 6400 cases have been reported with 352 reported deaths. The health ministry blamed the outbreak on heavy seasonal rainfall and poor sanitation.[57]
January 2009 - The Mpumalanga province of South Africa has confirmed over 381 new cases of Cholera, bringing the total number of cases treated since November 2008 to 2276. 19 people have died in the province since the outbreak.[58]
August 2008 - April 2009: In the 2008 Zimbabwean cholera outbreak, which is still continuing, an estimated 96,591 people in the country have been infected with cholera and, by 16 April 2009, 4,201 deaths had been reported.[59] According to the World Health Organization, during the week of 22–28 March 2009, the "Crude Case Fatality Ratio (CFR)" had dropped from 4.2% to 3.7%.[59] The daily updates for the period 29 March 2009 to 7 April 2009, list 1748 cases and 64 fatalities, giving a weekly CFR of 3.66% (see table above);[60] however, those for the period 8 April to 16 April list 1375 new cases and 62 deaths (and a resulting CFR of 4.5%).[60] The CFR had remained above 4.7% for most of January and early February 2009.[61]
November 2008 - Doctors Without Borders reported an outbreak in a refugee camp in the Democratic Republic of the Congo's eastern provincial capital of Goma. Some 45 cases were reportedly treated between November 7 through 9th.
August - October 2008 - As of 29 October 2008, a total of 644 laboratory-confirmed cholera cases, including eight deaths, had been verified in Iraq.[62]
March - April 2008 - 2,490 people from 20 provinces throughout Vietnam have been hospitalized with acute diarrhea. Of those hospitalized, 377 patients tested positive for cholera.[63]
August 2007 - The cholera epidemic started in Orissa, India. The outbreak has affected Rayagada, Koraput and Kalahandi districts where more than 2,000 people have been admitted to hospitals.[64]
July - December 2007 - A lack of clean drinking water in Iraq has led to an outbreak of cholera.[65] As of 2 December 2007, the UN has reported 22 deaths and 4,569 laboratory-confirmed cases.[66]
In 2000, some 140,000 cholera cases were officially notified to WHO. Africa accounted for 87% of these cases.[67]
January 1991 to September 1994 - Outbreak in South America, apparently initiated when a ship discharged ballast water. Beginning in Peru there were 1.04 million identified cases and almost 10,000 deaths. The causative agent was an O1, El Tor strain, with small differences from the seventh pandemic strain. In 1992 a new strain appeared in Asia, a non-O1, nonagglutinable vibrio (NAG) named O139 Bengal. It was first identified in Tamil Nadu, India and for a while displaced El Tor in southern Asia before decreasing in prevalence from 1995 to around 10% of all cases. It is considered to be an intermediate between El Tor and the classic strain and occurs in a new serogroup. There is evidence of the emergence of wide-spectrum resistance to drugs such as trimethoprim, sulfamethoxazole and streptomycin.
[edit] False historical report
Main article: Chicago 1885 cholera epidemic myth
A persistent myth states that 90,000 people died in Chicago of cholera and typhoid fever in 1885, but this story has no factual basis.[68] In 1885, there was a torrential rainstorm that flushed the Chicago River and its attendant pollutants into Lake Michigan far enough that the city's water supply was contaminated. However, because cholera was not present in the city, there were no cholera-related deaths. Nevertheless, the incident caused the city to become more serious about its sewage treatment.

[edit] Cholera morbus
The term cholera morbus was used in the 19th and early 20th centuries to describe both non-epidemic cholera and other gastrointestinal diseases (sometimes epidemic) that resembled cholera. The term is not in current use, but is found in many older references.[69] The other diseases are now known collectively as gastroenteritis.

[edit] Other historical information
In the past, people traveling in ships would hang a yellow quarantine flag if one or more of the crew members suffered from cholera. Boats with a yellow flag hung would not be allowed to disembark at any harbor for an extended period, typically 30 to 40 days.[70] In modern international maritime signal flags the quarantine flag is yellow and black.

[edit] Research
The Russian-born bacteriologist Waldemar Haffkine developed the first cholera vaccine around 1900. The bacterium had been originally isolated forty five years earlier (1855) by Italian anatomist Filippo Pacini, but its exact nature and his results were not widely known around the world.

One of the major contributions to fighting cholera was made by the physician and pioneer medical scientist John Snow (1813–1858), who found a link between cholera and contaminated drinking water in 1854.[31] Dr Snow proposed a microbial origin for epidemic cholera in 1849. In his major "state of the art" review of 1855, he proposed a substantially complete and correct model for the aetiology of the disease. In two pioneering epidemiological field-studies, he was able to demonstrate that human sewage contamination was the most probable disease vector in two major epidemics in London in 1854.[71] His model was not immediately accepted, but it was seen to be the more plausible as medical microbiology developed over the next thirty years or so.

Cities in developed nations made massive investment in clean water supply and well-separated sewage treatment infrastructures was made between the mid-1850s and the 1900s. This eliminated the threat of cholera epidemics from the major developed cities in the world. Robert Koch, 30 years later, identified V. cholerae with a microscope as the bacillus causing the disease in 1885.

Cholera has been a laboratory for the study of evolution of virulence. The province of Bengal in British India was partitioned into West Bengal and East Pakistan in 1947. Prior to partition, both regions had cholera pathogens with similar characteristics. After 1947, India made more progress on public health than East Pakistan (now Bangladesh). As a consequence,[clarification needed] the strains of the pathogen that succeeded in India had a greater incentive in the longevity of the host. They have become less virulent than the strains prevailing in Bangladesh. These uninhibitedly draw upon the resources of the host population, thus rapidly killing many victims.

More recently, in 2002, Alam et al. studied stool samples from patients at the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease (ICDDR) in Dhaka, Bangladesh. From the various experiments they conducted, the researchers found a correlation between the passage of V. cholerae through the human digestive system and an increased infectivity state. Furthermore, the researchers found that the bacterium creates a hyper-infected state where genes that control biosynthesis of amino acids, iron uptake systems, and formation of periplasmic nitrate reductase complexes were induced just before defecation. These induced characteristics allow the cholera vibrios to survive in the "rice water" stools, an environment of limited oxygen and iron, of patients with a cholera infection.[72]

[edit] Society and culture
[edit] Notable cases
Tchaikovsky's death has traditionally been attributed to cholera, most probably contracted through drinking contaminated water several days earlier.[73] Since the water was not boiled and cholera was once again rampaging St. Petersburg, such a connection was quite plausible ...."[74] However, some, including English musicologist and Tchaikovsky authority David Brown and biographer Anthony Holden, have theorized that his death was a suicide.[75] It should be noted also that Tchaikovsky's mother died of cholera,[76] and his father became sick with cholera at this time but made a full recovery.[77]

Woman in Florida diagnosed with cholera

A woman who recently returned to Florida from Haiti has been diagnosed with cholera, the Florida Department of Health announced Wednesday.

"We are working with our health care partners to ensure appropriate care of this individual and prevent the spread of this disease within the community," said State Surgeon General Ana M. Viamonte Ros in a written statement.

She said Florida authorities will "continue to monitor the state for any future cases."

Can be passed by physical contact witht he skin, or presumably by physical contact with surfaces she had physical contact with.

Main vector of communication is usually through water -- unless, we are talking about some sort of re-engineered bacteria OR this is really not cholera at all but something masking the symptoms OR another infectious agent re-engineered to carry the toxin-producing genes of V. Cholerae.

I see. Microbiology was never my strong suit.

I`m thinking bathroom taps - you know if you have that your gonna need the bathroom, and not to be too gross, after she had been she would have to turn on the tap before she could wash her hands right?

possible contamination from that point on as even if someone else comes in - turns on tap ( contaminated) washes hands (clean) then turns off tap (contaminated again).

just a thought, there will likely be more cases.

UN: Drug-resistant malaria spreading in Asia

 
Editor's Note: Could this have to do anything with scientists releasing billions of genetically modified insects into the environment?


Associated Press

GENEVA – The World Health Organization says countries are not doing enough to detect drug-resistant malaria, which is spreading in Southeast Asia.

The U.N. health agency says there is evidence that type of malaria has now spread from Thailand's western border with Myanmar to its southeastern Cambodian border.

WHO says a strain of the mosquito-borne infectious disease resistant to the most effective antimalarial drugs emerged on the Myanmar border two years ago.

It warned that resistance to the malaria drug artemisinin could spread to African countries, just like it did with previous malaria treatments in the 1960s and 1970s.

The malarial-preventive drug taken to visit malaria-dangerous countries is a psychotropic drug. 

It is the same drug taken to "treat" malaria.  The idea is to take it and it kills the malaria should you get it.
It is highly-toxic.  The dosage is one pill per week.  Take 2 pills, instead of the 1, and you're dead in six hours.

One is supposed to take it for two weeks before traveling, during the stay and for 3 weeks afterward.

If malaria is released and a worldwide problem...we'd all be on a powerful hallucinogenic, rather than die & then all the audio/visual propaganda would take hold really well.  It would cause more societal unrest & chaos with persons hallucinating, too.

Haiti has been hit by a particularly "virulent" strain of cholera that could stay in the country for years, even if health measures will now limit its human toll, US officials said Thursday.

Not only do Haitians have little or no immunity to fight a disease that has been absent from Haiti for at least 50 years, "this strain of cholera seems to be more virulent than normal strains", US official Thomas Adams told reporters...

..."So we expect using that model that Haiti is going to have sustained transmission for a number of years," Menon said...

UN worries its troops caused cholera in Haiti

AP – A young man suffering cholera symptoms is pushed in a wheelbarrow to St. Catherine hospital, run by Doctors … By JONATHAN M. KATZ, Associated Press Jonathan M. Katz, Associated Press – Fri Nov 19, 11:49 pm ET

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – It began as a rumor that farmers saw waste from a U.N. peacekeeping base flow into a river. Within days of the talk, hundreds downstream had died from cholera.

The mounting circumstantial evidence that U.N. peacekeepers from Nepal brought cholera to Haiti was largely dismissed by U.N. officials. Haitians who asked about it were called political or paranoid. Foreigners were accused of playing "the blame game." The World Health Organization said the question was simply "not a priority."

But this week, after anti-U.N. riots and inquiries from health experts, the top U.N. representative in Haiti said he is taking the allegations very seriously.

"It was those dirty Nepalese troops.  They're diseased.  No, it isn't genetically engineered strains released intentionally  as bioweapons (depopulation)."

U.N. blasts global response to Haiti cholera outbreak as inadequate

NEW: The world body has gotten 10 percent of the donations it requested
The U.N. denies that its peacekeepers started the outbreak
Nearly 1,200 people have died, almost 50,000 have gotten medical care

Port-Au-Prince, Haiti (CNN) -- The United Nations criticized the international response to the Haiti cholera outbreak as inadequate on Saturday, saying donors had pledged only about ten percent of the money needed to curb the disease.

Last week, the world body appealed for $164 million to help fight cholera in the impoverished Caribbean country. So far, the water-borne disease has claimed 1,186 lives, according to Haiti's health ministry. Almost 50,000 people have sought medical help; about 40 percent of those people have been hospitalized.

"Critical supplies and skills are urgently needed," Nigel Fisher, the world body's humanitarian coordinator in Haiti, said in a press release Saturday. "We need doctors, nurses, water purification systems, chlorine tablets, soap, oral rehydration salts, tents for cholera treatment centres and a range of other supplies."

Haiti cholera clashes: UN troops shoot man deadPeacekeepers kill at least one person in clashes as Haitians blame epidemic on Nepalese force

Rory Carroll in Port-au-Prince guardian.co.uk, Tuesday 16 November 2010 11.13 GMT
 
 
UN peacekeepers in Haiti have shot dead at least one person in clashes sparked by claims that Nepalese soldiers brought the cholera epidemic that has swept the country, killing 1,000 people.

Crowds in two northern towns threw stones, set up burning barricades and blocked roads to protest against the presence of the foreign troops and the government's response to the crisis, which has unsettled the authorities and the UN in the runup to elections on 28 November.

One man was shot by a UN peacekeeper during an exchange of gunfire in Quartier Morin, near the country's second city, Cap-Haitien.

Chitra Chauhan, 33. Died Nov. 15 was found dead in an apparent suicide by cyanide at a Temple Terrace hotel, police said. Chauhan left a suicide note saying she used cyanide. Hazmat team officials said the cyanide was found only in granular form, meaning it was not considered dangerous outside of the room it was found in. The chemical is considered more dangerous in a liquid or gas form. Potassium Cyanide, the apparent cause of death, is a chemical commonly used by universities in teaching chemistry and conducting research, but it was not used in the research projects she was working on. Chauhan, a molecular biologist, was a post-doctoral researcher in the Global Health department in the College of Public Health. She earned her doctorate from the Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology in New Delhi, India, in 2005, then studied mosquitoes and disease transmission at the University of Notre Dame.

Anybody that doesn't get it by now:  vaccines are bioweapons.

They are classified as such.

If you have the vaccine, the vaccine is then part of a weapons system -- the other part being the disease.

They have figured out a way to protect against Cholera and Malaria perhaps, so both of these diseases can potentially be used as weapons.  (I am saying nothing of the real efficacy or safety of the final vaccine!)

This woman helped build a weapon, knowingly or unwittingly, and she was disposed of. This weapons can be used in warfare or in large-scale depopulation projects -- wherever.

Over one hundred years ago 5.5% of the population of Chicago was wiped out by Cholera.  What is 5.5% of the U.S. --  16.5 million people.  Enough to make Hitler look like a piker and that is just one country.

Now throw some genetically re-engineered Malaria into the mix and you have yourself a real Bilderberger field day.

They are not stacking those FEMA coffins for no reason.

Haiti death toll rises to 1,344

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
NEW: Doctors, nurses and trucks to carry the dead are all in short supply
Nearly 57,000 people have been treated
The outbreak is expected to surpass the original prediction of 200,000 cases


Port-Au-Prince, Haiti -- The death toll has risen to at least 1,344 in the cholera outbreak in Haiti that has sickened nearly 57,000 people, the Haitian government said Monday.

The announcement came as international health officials predicted that the scale of Haiti's cholera epidemic will exceed initial estimates of 200,000 over coming months.

"Having seen how the bacteria is behaving in this environment with these people, having seen just how poor and how hungry the people are, we know we have to revise our numbers up," said Nyka Alexander, a spokeswoman for the World Health Organization, in a phone call with CNN.

Nepalese peace keepers were sent to Haiti in October!  Cholera pandemic in Nepal this summer.  UN knew some of these men were carriers.

Nepalese soldiers probably were the vector for Cholera as the Haitian people suspected. My apologies to you, mes freres.  Sincerely.

Chitra probably knew about this as well.

GMO mosquitoes are planned to be released in the U.S. as well as other Latin American states. Of course, they could migrate from the Caribean Sea anyway.

Haiti cholera spreading faster than predicted: U.N.

Patrick Worsnip Patrick Worsnip – Tue Nov 23, 4:59 pm ET

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – Haiti's deadly cholera epidemic is spreading faster than originally estimated and is likely to result in hundreds of thousands of cases and last up to a year, a senior U.N. official said on Tuesday.

Since the disease first appeared in mid-October it has killed 1,344 people as of Friday in the poverty-stricken and earthquake-ravaged Caribbean nation.

But U.N. humanitarian coordinator in Haiti Nigel Fisher said the real death toll might be "closer to two thousand than one" because of lack of data from remote areas, and the number of cases 60,000-70,000 instead of the official figure of around 50,000.

Addressing a U.N. news conference by video link from Haiti, Fisher said experts from the World Health Organization were now revising their estimate that the diarrheal disease, spread by poor sanitation, would cause 200,000 cases within six months.

DHS panel on chemical-plant attacks is stacked with industry lobbyists who are planning False Flags
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/11/24/AR2010112406126.html
By Dan Eggen  Washington Post Staff Writer  Wednesday, November 24, 2010; 6:07 PM


When the Department of Homeland Security wants advice on how to guard against terrorist attacks at chemical plants, it relies heavily on a special agency panel focused on the topic.  There's just one problem, critics say: The committee is stacked with more than a dozen chemical corporation lobbyists and other industry representatives, who have worked to water down agency standards and oppose tougher security requirements.  The Chemical Sector Committee, which also includes government officials, does most of its business in secret and is not covered by White House ethics rules aimed at curbing the influence of lobbyists in government.  "These are the same people that are lobbying on the Hill to kill stronger regulations," said Rick Hind, legislative director for the Greenpeace Toxics Campaign, which has asked DHS to broaden the committee's membership. "It's a very monopolistic lobbying opportunity."  The arrangement underscores the ongoing efforts of the chemical industry to limit oversight by DHS,which has struggled to enact security regulations for petroleum plants, chlorine factories and other facilities at risk for terrorist attacks.  The debate comes amid growing concerns over the ability of al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups to exploit gaps in the nation's security apparatus. Earlier this month, DHS tightened security for cargo shipments from abroad after the discovery of a Yemen-based plot to send bombs in shipped packages; the air-cargo industry had resisted such steps for years.  With chemical plants, critics complain that DHS has bowed to industry pressure on numerous fronts, ranging from which facilities can be inspected to what they can be required to do. DHS officials defend their record and say cooperation with industry groups is vital in order to make security plans work.  DHS spokesman Chris Ortman said the agency's assessment program "has already been effective in bringing about security improvements." About 7,000 chemical sites have been identified as high-risk, and more than 2,000 have taken steps to reduce risk factors, he said.  Rand Beers, undersecretary for the National Protection and Programs Directorate, wrote in a Nov. 2 letter to Greenpeace that the goal of such panels is to "help facilitate unfettered communication and coordination," and that the agency would work to include environmental groups and others in deliberations.  The issue of chemical-plant safety is under debate in Congress, where lawmakers are weighing whether to renew funding for the DHS reporting-and-inspection program. The House has voted to give regulators the power to require safer practices at chemical plants, but the idea has foundered amid industry opposition in the Senate.  Chemical industry groups argue that additional oversight is unnecessary and will cost jobs at a time of economic distress. The sector has spent nearly $40 million on lobbying since 2009, according to disclosure records.  "We are longtime advocates for chemical security regulations, but of course there is disagreement and debate about how that gets done," said Scott Jensen, spokesman for the American Chemistry Council, the industry's main lobbying group. "There's a lot at stake for our industry and our members."

Cholera is very contagious. It is spread by the unintentional consumption of infected feces that contaminate food and water. It can also be spread through human to human contact. Some people have been infected with cholera by eating raw or undercooked shellfish.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — The ballot is as crowded as the earthquake-ravaged capital itself, and a collapsed presidential palace is the prize. The voter rolls are filled with the dead, and living citizens are still struggling to figure out if and where they can vote while worrying about political violence and a spreading cholera epidemic.

It's Election Sunday in post-quake Haiti.

Ninety-six contenders are competing for 11 Senate seats and more than 800 more are seeking to fill the 99-seat lower house. There are local and municipal races as well.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Nearly all the major candidates in Haiti's presidential election called for Sunday's election to be voided amid allegations of fraud and reports that large numbers of voters were turned away from polling stations throughout the quake-stricken country.

Twelve of the 19 candidates endorsed a joint statement denouncing the voting as fraudulent and calling on their supporters to show their anger with demonstrations against the government and the country's Provisional Electoral Council.

The statement included all of the major contenders but one: Jude Celestin, who is backed by the Unity party of President Rene Preval _

I put one up in the MIT facebook but they took it DOWN!

This is interesting,  I know that their work is hazardous due to possible exposure, but this suggests possible nefarious ends.  It maybe slightly beyond random.  Could it be that each one of them discovered something and were careless about disclosure?

I would say that as scientists they would be enthralled and intensely engaged in their research at the casualty of social awareness, they may have professional/career intelligence but a lack of practical intelligence due to their limited social awareness beyond their fields of interest and academy. They are many scientists/academics/researchers (natural and otherwise) whose "social" causes and awareness does not go beyond their careers, if it is not going to help them then it is irrelevant and beyond their comfort zone, so they remain ignorant; so, scientists can be sheeple.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Haitians entered election day hoping for the best. Within hours, ballot boxes were ripped to pieces, protesters were on the streets and nearly every presidential hopeful was united against the government.

Add it to Haiti's list: Already reeling from a catastrophic earthquake, one of the world's poorest economies, storms, a deadly cholera epidemic and unrest over U.N. peacekeepers, the Caribbean nation could now be on the edge of political turmoil.

The chaos is Sunday's voting ended up uniting most of the top presidential candidates against the president's heir apparent — Jude Celestin, head of the state-run construction company and beneficiary of a well-financed campaign.

But I suspect they most look for the students that have already figured it out and don't have a problem with the globalist plan.

Mentally Unstable?  Then how would they be able to complete the work?  I agree with the moral assessment.  There is intense pressure within academia to overachieve, family and morals are not relevant while  prestige (professional recognition) and income are significant.

So getting their own piece of the action is an ultimate goal.

Haitian cholera strain could dominate the Americas

    * 16:12 10 December 2010 by Debora MacKenzie
    * For similar stories, visit the Epidemics and Pandemics Topic Guide

The DNA of the cholera bacteria ravaging Haiti has been sequenced, and the news is not good. It is carrying a mutation that seems to cause more intense disease. This has already helped the strain to dominate in south Asia, and the Haitian epidemic could spread it still further.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported on 8 December that in its first six weeks, the Haitian cholera has been 11.5 times as likely to kill its victims as the cholera that reached Peru in 1991, even though Peruvians, like Haitians, had no prior immunity to the bacteria.

The death rate could partly be because medical care, nutrition and HIV levels are worse in earthquake- and poverty-stricken Haiti than Peru, says Matt Waldor of Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. But it could also be due to a nastier cholera toxin.

Single source

Waldor and colleagues have now sequenced the full DNA of the Haitian cholera and compared it with cholera from Peru, Bangladesh, the Gulf of Mexico and elsewhere. The analysis, done in record time using a new sequencing technique, confirmed a simpler analysis by the CDC last month, showing the Haitian bacteria were from a single source and similar to recent south Asian strains.

The greater genetic detail showed that the Haitian bacteria are "nearly identical" to the predominant south Asian strain, but a different lineage to cholera in South America, or strains occurring naturally in the Gulf of Mexico. "The bottom line is, this cholera was introduced by human activity from thousands of miles away," says Waldor.

Haitian cholera strain called deadlier


Published: Dec. 10, 2010 at 7:45 PM

BOSTON, Dec. 10 (UPI) -- The cholera strain devastating Haiti carries a mutation that makes it more intense and could allow it to spread further, U.S. researchers say.

Researchers at two Boston hospitals have sequenced the DNA of the cholera bacteria and compared it with strains from Peru, Bangladesh, the Gulf of Mexico region and other areas, NewScientist.com reported Friday.

The analysis showed the Haitian bacteria were from a single source and similar to a recent predominant South Asian strain, but a different lineage to cholera in South America or strains occurring naturally in the Gulf of Mexico.

Something tells me that Rockefeller agents will be attending that Obesity Truth semilar at USF in April (http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=192502.0) to make sure the main speakers either:

* make no mention of aspartame and MSG
* dismiss "aspartame and MSG cause obesity, cancer, and diabetes" as "conspiracy theory"

And if one of the main speakers mentions how aspartame and MSG cause obesity, cancer, and diabetes and use documented evidence to back up their claims, they could end up "suicided" like the dead microbiologist. They have to make sure the sheeple continue to believe that fat and sugar alone cause obesity and use that as a pretext to implement their pharmaceutical/scientific dictatorship.

Viruses and the GM Insect “Flying Vaccine” Solution          

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
Decmber 13, 2010

While it is generally clear, even to the relatively uninformed, that government and corporations have become one and the same, the extent to which this is the case is still largely unknown amongst the general public. Likewise, the extent to which this merger is affecting public health is also not widely known. In recent years (aside from their other horrific projects) government agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), think tanks, and corporations have all banded together to combine two of the biggest scourges on the environment and human health — genetic modification and vaccines — into one entity.

 
 
 
 We are being conditioned to accept and expect these organisms to be released on the public on some future date.
 
While “scientists” have been genetically modifying insects for years, only in the last few have they begun to openly discuss releasing them into the environment. As always, the fact that public discussion has just now begun to take place on the issue means that the project has already been initiated. This much has been borne out by the facts in that the release of the insects has already been announced.

Under the guise of eradicating Dengue fever, GM mosquitoes were released into the environment in the Cayman Islands in 2009. Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne, virus-based disease that has largely been non-existent in North America for several decades. Dengue fever can morph into a much more dangerous form of the illness known as Dengue Hemorrhagic fever. Symptoms of Dengue fever are high fever, headache, pain behind the eyes, easy bruising, joint, muscle, bone pain, rash, and bleeding from the gums. There is no known cure or treatment for Dengue fever besides adequate rest and drinking plenty of water.

Generally speaking, it is one specific type of mosquito, Aedes Aegypti, which transmits the virus.

The publicly given method for using these GM mosquitoes in the eradication of Dengue fever was that the genetically modified mosquitoes were “engineered with an extra gene, or inserted bacterium, or have had a gene altered so that either their offspring are sterile and unable to spread dengue, or simply die.” More specifically, the male GM mosquitoes are supposed to mate with natural females which produce larvae that die unless tetracycline, an antibiotic, is present. Without the antibiotic, an enzyme accumulates to a level that is toxic enough to kill the larvae.

It is important to note that these GM mosquitoes, known as OX513A, necessarily have to be of the Aedis Aegypti type in order to achieve the goals publicly stated by the developers. Therefore, the millions of male mosquitoes that were released into the open-air environment in 2009, and again in 2010, were all of the dengue fever carrying type.

The OX513A mosquitoes were developed by a British biotechnology company named Oxitec and their subsequent release was overseen by the Mosquito Research and Control Unit (MRCU) in the Cayman Islands, a British overseas territory.

Although Oxitec Limited was the developer who engaged in most of the groundwork for the GM insects, the project was not theirs alone. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Health Organization, The PEW Charitable Trusts, and government agencies in the United States, England, Malaysia, and others were all involved in the development and promotion of the GM mosquitoes.

What has been quite suspicious, however, is the fact that Dengue fever, which has been nonexistent in North America for decades, has recently surfaced in Florida. Initially, the fever was found in 2009, but by 2010 the cases had vastly increased. In July 2010, a CDC study was released to very little media attention indicating that about 10 percent of the population of Key West had been infected with Dengue fever. This had doubled from 2009 where 5 percent had been infected. One might wonder what caused a virus that had been almost entirely eradicated to suddenly reappear with such vigor. That is, one might wonder if the answer weren’t so blatantly obvious. Of course, official reports do not address whether or not the Dengue fever is connected to the millions of mosquitoes capable of carrying the fever which were released just miles away in the Cayman Islands.

While Dengue fever had been eradicated in terms of naturally occurring outbreaks in the United States, cases that were research-related and laboratory-generated have occurred in the country for many years. This is because Dengue fever has been of particular interest to the United States government, US Army, and CIA since at least the middle part of the 20th century. There is a great deal of evidence suggesting that the biochemical research facilities at Fort Detrick were conducting tests on Dengue fever as a bio-weapon as far back as 1942. It is generally known that in the 1950s the CIA partnered with Ft. Detrick to study Dengue fever and other exotic diseases for use as biological weapons.

It is also interesting to note that, according to CIA documents as well as a 1975 congressional committee, the three locations of Key West, Panama City, and Avon Park (and two other locations in central Florida) were testing sites for Dengue fever research.

As is generally the case, the experiments in Avon Park were concentrated in low-income neighborhoods, in areas that were predominantly black with newly constructed housing projects. According to H.P. Albarelli Jr. and Zoe Martell of Truthout, CIA documents related to the MK/NAOMI program revealed that the agency was using the Aegis Aegypti type of mosquito in these experiments as well. In one of these experiments, 600,000 mosquitoes were released over Avon Park and in another 150,000 insects were released in specially designed paper bags that were designed to open up when they hit the ground.

Truthout.org interviewed residents (or test subjects) of Avon Park still living in the area who related that there were at least 6 or 7 deaths resulting from the experiments. As quoted by Truthout, one resident said, “Nobody knew about what had gone on here for years, maybe over 20 years, but in looking back it explained why a bunch of healthy people got sick quick and died at the time of those experiments.”  Truthout goes on to point out that around the same time of the Avon Park experiments “there were at least two cases of Dengue fever reported among civilian researchers at Fort Detrick in Maryland.”

In 1978, a Pentagon document titled, “Biological Warfare: Secret Testing & Volunteers” revealed that similar experiments were conducted in Key West by the Army Chemical Corps and Special Operations and Projects Divisions at Fort Detrick.

Like the current situation, U.S. government agencies teamed with NGOs, academia, and other organizations to conduct mosquito-related projects. Operation Bellweather, a 1959 experiment consisting of over 50 field tests, was conducted over several states including Georgia, Maryland, Utah, and Arizona, and Florida. Operation Bellweather was coordinated with the Rockefeller Institute in New York; the facility that actually bred the mosquitoes. What’s more, the experiment was aided by the Armour Research Foundation, the Battelle Memorial Institute, Ben Venue Labs, Inc., the University of Florida, Florida State University, and the Lovell Chemical Company.


The military and CIA connections to Dengue fever outbreaks do not end with these experiments, however. It is widely believed that the 1981 outbreak in Cuba was a result of CIA and U.S. military covert biological attacks. This outbreak occurred essentially out of nowhere and resulted in over one hundred thousand cases of infection. Albarelli and Martell write

American researcher William H. Schaap, an editor of Covert Action magazine, claims the Cuba Dengue outbreak was the result of CIA activities. Former Fort Detrick researchers, all of whom refused to have their names used for this article, say they performed ‘advance work’ on the Cuba outbreak and that it was ‘man made.’

In 1982 the CIA was accused by the Soviet media of sending operatives into Pakistan and Afghanistan for the purposes of creating a Dengue epidemic. Likewise, in 1985 and 1986, authorities in Nicaragua made similar claims against the CIA, also suggesting that they were attempting to start a Dengue outbreak.

While the CIA has characteristically denied involvement in all of these instances, army researchers have admitted to having worked intensely with “arthropod vectors for offensive biological warfare objectives” and that such work was conducted at Fort Detrick in the 1980s. Not only that, but researchers have also admitted that large mosquito colonies, which were infected with both yellow fever and Dengue fever, were being maintained at the Frederick, Maryland facility.

There is also evidence of experimentation with federal prisoners without their knowledge. As Truthout reports:

Several redacted Camp Detrick and Edgewood Arsenal reports indicate that experiments were conducted on state and federal prisoners who were unwittingly exposed to Dengue fever, as well as other viruses, some possibly lethal.

With all of the evidence that CIA and military tests have been conducted regarding Dengue fever, there is ample reason to be concerned when one sees a connection like the recent release of mosquitoes and the subsequent outbreak of Dengue fever in Florida, a traditional testing site for these organizations.

The response to the Dengue outbreak should also be questioned as aerial spraying campaigns were intensified. While these sprayings were claimed to be for the eradication of the Dengue-carrying mosquitoes, the number of people who contracted the illness actually rose.

Another questionable incident related to mosquito-borne Dengue fever and the sudden outbreak occurred on November 15, 2010. A University of South Florida molecular biologist apparently committed suicide by drinking cyanide at a Temple Terrace hotel.  Dr. Chauhan, had studied mosquitoes and disease transmission at the University of Notre Dame. While ordinarily this would not be cause for concern, when one considers the level of interest maintained in mosquito-borne illnesses by both the military and intelligence agencies, the death of Dr. Chauhan might well be something that should be investigated further.

Until her death, she was a post-doctoral researcher in the Global Health department in the College of Public Health. Those who knew her described her as both very bright and very enthusiastic. Maybe this is a coincidence, but regardless, it is one that should be looked at closely.

Unfortunately, the issue of GM insects being released into the wild does not end with increasing Dengue fever and malaria. In 2009, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation awarded $100,000 each to researchers in 22 countries in order to develop mosquitoes that would act as “flying syringes.” Essentially, the mosquitoes would be genetically engineered to deliver vaccines with each bite.

The money was distributed to a wide variety of academic institutions, non-profit organizations, government agencies, and private companies. The funding was part of what was termed in an AFP article “the first round of funding for the Gates Foundation’s ‘Grand Challenges Explorations,’ a five-year 100-million-dollar initiative to ‘promote innovative ideas in global health.’”  The basic premise behind the flying mosquito vaccines is that an insect will be genetically modified to produce antibodies to a certain disease in their saliva, which is then transmitted to the individual when the mosquito bites them.

There is a host of problems with this method that range from the moral to the scientific. First, the presence of antibodies does not necessarily mean immunity, and the transfer of them does not in any way provide immunization to the subject being injected with them. The science related to antibodies and immunity is still largely unsettled. Vaccines, themselves, are completely ineffective and have never been proven effective by a study that was not connected to a drug company or a pharmaceutical company.[1] They are, essentially, faith-based medicine.

Even more frightening is the potential of releasing genetically modified mosquitoes that contain actual diseases in their systems to purposely cause a human pandemic. Those who have weakened immune systems would be at the highest risk, but this would no doubt include everyone else as well since they would also be infected with the viruses when bitten. Person-to-person spreading would take over where the mosquitoes left off. Add to this the potential for simultaneous pandemics (if different versions of the insects were used simultaneously) and one has the recipe for genocide on a mass scale. Unfortunately, this is the scenario that many have envisioned for some time.

Nevertheless, although Gates has invested so much money, and so many hardworking individuals and prestigious universities have invested so much time and effort, the general consensus of the media is that the flying syringes will never take flight. This is because, as Science NOW reports,

The concept of a ‘flying vaccinator’ transgenic mosquito is not likely to be a practicable method of disease control, because ‘flying vaccinator’ is an unacceptable way to deliver vaccine without issues of dosage and informed consent against current vaccine programs. These difficulties are more complicated by the issues of public acceptance to release of transgenic mosquitoes.


However, it is quite difficult to believe that the Gates Foundation distributed such a vast amount of money to researchers without first questioning whether or not their efforts were feasible for future use. It is likewise very hard to believe that once these issues were considered, that the Gates Foundation would simply throw away money on a project that was doomed to failure. In fact, anyone who actually believes this is unfortunately very naïve.  Clearly, we are being conditioned to accept and expect these organisms to be released on the public on some future date. What the context will be, however, is anyone’s guess.

Yet more connections between the research on mosquitos and vaccines (Malaria and Cholera) the scientist was working on.  Particulary relevant is the connection to a malaria vaccine as it relates to Bill Gates' eugencisist interest in vaccines in general.

Cholera death toll in Haiti rises to more than 3,000

By Moni Basu, CNN

December 31, 2010 -- Updated 1712 GMT (0112 HKT)

A lack of access to drinking water and difficulties distributing medical supplies have added to the problems in Haiti.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
Many Haitians lack access to safe drinking water
The distribution of supplies remains a logistical problem
The government estimates there will be 400,000 cholera cases by next October

(CNN) -- In the 10 weeks since an epidemic erupted in Haiti, cholera has killed more than 3,000 people -- partly because the distribution of health supplies remains a logistical nightmare.

A global medical aid agency battling the disease added Friday that another aspect of the problem has been a lack of access to untainted drinking water.

The death toll soared to 3,333 and another 140,000 people have fallen sick, Haiti's Ministry of Health reported Friday, publishing the most recent data available through December 26.

Cholera spreads all over Dominican Rep.
Tue Jan 4, 2011 3:5AM

The cholera has now spread to all provinces in the Dominican Republic as an outbreak of the water-borne disease in neighboring Haiti has claimed thousands of lives.


"The number of people receiving medical treatment in Haiti has exceeded 150,000 and over 3,300 people have died. Another 139 have contracted the disease in the Dominican Republic," RIA Novosti news agency quoted Russia's chief sanitary doctor, Gennady Onishchenko, as saying on Monday.

He also warned Russian tourists of the possibility of the epidemic spreading there from Haiti.

Onishchenko noted that scope of Haiti cholera spreading showed that the world was on the brink of the first cholera pandemic in the 21st century.

Drug-resistant malaria could spread fast, expert warns
By Stephanie Nebehay

GENEVA | Wed Jan 12, 2011 12:57pm EST

GENEVA (Reuters) - Drug-resistant malaria could spread from southeast Asia to Africa within months, putting millions of children's lives at risk, a leading expert warned on Wednesday.

Nicholas White, professor of tropical medicine at Mahidol University in Bangkok, called for a war before it is too late on the malaria strain resistant to the drug artemisinin that first emerged along the Thai-Cambodian border in 2007.

This longer-to-treat form of malaria is suspected of breaking out along the Thai-Myanmar frontier and in a province of Vietnam, where tests are under way to confirm it, but the great fear is of it reaching Africa.

"It is a time bomb, it is ticking. It has the potential of killing millions of African children," White told Reuters.

Poor Sanitation In Haiti, Polio
Vax Produce Polio Outbreak



From Patricia Doyle, PhD
1-23-11
 
It looks like polio is spreading...due to polio oral vaccine.
 
I also note that one of the patients who was flown to North Carolina may have put the community at risk in North Carolina as the hosital was originally given the diangosis of Guillain Barre Syndrome and not told of possible polio caused by the vaccine with live virus.
 
In this day and age, it bogglese my mind that we rely on a vaccine that has a live virus and can spread polio...rather than spend the money on common municipal sanitation measures. 
 
This is a rather long post but it is well worth the read as it does show oral polio vaccine can cause polio outbreaks.
 
 
Given the sanitation situation in Haiti, I feel that we could see a major outbreak of polio and many deaths.  Th polio virus will exist in the environment of Haiti for years to come.

ACUTE FLACCID PARALYSIS - HAITI: REQUEST FOR INFORMATION
 
 
Date: Mon 17 Jan 2011
From: James Wilson [email protected]
ProMED-mail regrets the delay in posting. - Mod.MPP
Subject: Haiti: Suspected VDPV Type I Cases
 
_________
 
I realize many of you are waiting anxiously for the diagnostic  results of the suspected VDPV [vaccine derived poliovirus] Type I  cases that presented as reported "ascending paralysis"/Acute Flaccid  Paralysis (AFP).
 
Here are updates as we understand them:
 
1. Three adult cases were identified at a medical facility in Port de  Paix last week [week of 10 Jan 2011]. Two were fatal, and one remains  paralyzed and ventilator-dependent at an ICU in Port au Prince.  Several samples were acquired from this patient for diagnostic  testing. The surviving patient was initially diagnosed with  Guillan-Barre Syndrome.
 
2. An additional pediatric case was identified as having been  medivac'ed to Charlotte, North Carolina, where she remains  ventilator-dependent in an ICU. This case was found to have been ill  originally in October [2010]; she lived in Petionville. It is notable  the medical team involved in this case had diagnosed the child with  Guillan-Barre syndrome. ... Once the question of VDPV was raised,  there was concern about the safety of the Charlotte community, given  the nationwide problem of childhood vaccination compliance.
 
3. An anonymous HEAS [Haiti Epidemic Advisory System] partner  reported seeing a "16-18 year old from Fermate die of acute flaccid  paralysis but had no idea at that time the government reported such  things. We spent a long time trying to sort out what part of spinal  cord might have given him an ascending flaccid paralysis causing  death from respiratory failure over the course of about 24 hours and  could not come up with a medical, physiological answer except  Guillan-Barre. Polio never entered my brain. He had a fracture in his  lower leg and had a spinal anesthetic which resolved, but he came  back the next day complaining of weakness and trouble breathing."
 
4. Investigation by officials has uncovered multiple additional  suspect cases for diagnostic testing in both the Port de Paix and  Port au Prince areas.
 
As reported previously, Hispaniola (starting in Haiti, with spread to  the Dominican Republic) was the site of a large outbreak of  Vaccine-Derived PolioVirus (VDPV) Type I from 1998-2001 that debunked  the previously held belief that oral polio vaccine only caused rare  single-case reversions. Both Port de Paix and Port au Prince were  involved in the outbreak. Several environment samples provided  evidence of environmental contamination. The virus, an unstable  reverted mutant, was found to have recombined with 4 indigenous  enteroviruses. This series of mutations resulted in a novel virus now  capable of aggressive transmission, severe neurological disease, and  fatalities. It is unclear what the actual case fatality rate is when  compared to wild type polio. My personal opinion is it is likely  higher given this was/is an unstable mutant still adapting to both  the environment and the host population.
 
The good news is rapid emergency vaccination with OPV in 2001 was  thought to have brought the situation under control. However, the  current situation challenges the notion of whether the virus was  truly contained, hence the absolute need for definitive, credible  laboratory evaluation of both environmental and human samples.
 
We were dismayed to realize the number of people involved in the  initial care and transport of the Port de Paix patient cluster who  did not provide warning of the situation. They were interviewed after  discovery of a You Tube video depicting the transfer of one of the  patients by one of our astute HEAS members on [9 Jan 2011].  Potentially exposed Haitian and non-Haitian personnel included the  staff of the Port de Paix and Port au Prince facilities and 2  transport teams. We are fortunate none of the involved personnel have  reported symptoms. It is key to note that personnel vaccinated  appropriately for polio are immune; however, Haitian personnel and  the surrounding community are an entirely different matter...
 
Laboratory results are still pending. We hope this will turn out to  be a false alarm, but as the appearance of cholera has shown us,  complacency costs lives.

The above email is the 1st information that ProMED-mail has received  on the apparent outbreak of acute flaccid paralysis in Haiti, and we  are grateful to Dr. Wilson for sending this alert. On searching the  web, this moderator was able to find the earlier alerts related to  the identification of a "cluster" of acute flaccid paralysis cases  posted on a blog known as the Haiti Medical and Public Health  Information Sharing Environment at  http://haiti.mphise.com/ru/re-update-alert-acute-flaccid-paralysis.
 
The outbreak of VDPV in Hispanola was covered by ProMED and can be  reviewed through reading the prior posts referenced below. At the  time of this outbreak (2000-2001), there was a total of 21 cases of  VDPV-associated paralysis on Hispanola (Haiti 8 and the Dominican  Republic 13), of which 12 cases were reported in 2000 and 9 cases  were reported in 2001. 
 
 
http://www.polioeradication.org/Dataandmonitoring/Poliothisweek/Circulatingvaccinederivedpoliovirus.aspx.
 
 
Kew et al demonstrated that the viruses responsible for the paralytic  poliomyelitis outbreak in the Dominican Republic and Haiti were  derivatives from an attenuated poliovirus vaccine (OPV) in use during  1998-1999. (See Kew O, et al. Outbreak of Poliomyelitis in Hispaniola  Associated with Circulating Type 1 Vaccine-Derived Poliovirus.  Science 12 Apr 2002: 356-359. Abstract available at  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11896235.
 
 
Kew mentions that it is common for vaccine viruses to "back mutate" (revert to wild  poliovirus-like neurovirulence), but the concerns arise in areas with  low vaccination coverage and, therefore, low herd immunity, so that  these reverted viruses are in an environment favorable for  circulation and propagation of an outbreak of paralytic disease. (See  prior ProMED postings on other events associated with VDPVs.)
 
As part of the global polio eradication initiative activities, all  cases of acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) in individuals less than 15  years of age are to be reported and investigated. A benchmark  indicator of adequate surveillance activities is a reported AFP rate  of at least 1 per 100 000 population annually. According to  monitoring data available on the WHO immunization monitoring website,  during the period 1996 through 2010, non-polio AFP rates reported in  Haiti were less than 1 per 100 000 population under age 15 years for  all years during this period, including 2000 and 2001, the 2 years  during which there were cVDPV (circulating vaccine derived  poliovirus) associated paralytic cases, and AFP surveillance was  significantly increased (from rates of 0.0/0.1 up to 0.6 and 0.8 in  2000/2001 respectively) (data available through an interactive page  at:  http://apps.who.int/immunization_monitoring/en/diseases/poliomyelitis/case_count.cfm.
 
These figures suggest that surveillance for paralytic disease in  Haiti has been suboptimal and may well not rule out the possibility  of having had some "below the radar" circulation of poliovirus,  either wild poliovirus (WPV) or vaccine derived poliovirus (VDPV). In  addition, as seen with the recent experience with cholera in Haiti,  the possibility of introduction of WPV is there, as there has been  significant influx of international workers in the post earthquake  relief activities.
 
Unfortunately, laboratory confirmation at this point in time may be  challenged as 2 of the identified cases were fatal cases, one had  onset of illness in October 2010, so a negative virus isolation study  will not definitively rule out a viral infection, leaving the one  case presently hospitalized in Haiti on a respirator as the only case  in which there is a reasonable likelihood of successful virus  isolation studies. That being said, the possibility of a several  cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) occurring in close temporal  proximity also exists. GBS has been associated with gastrointestinal  and respiratory infections (both viral as well as bacterial), and  following vaccination, all 3 pre-disposing events/conditions have  been coexisting in the present environment in Haiti.
ProMED-mail awaits further information on the results of 
investigations and laboratory studies.

And why was Haiti turned into an offshore laboratory for bioweapons?

The re-installation of the CIA's favorite dictatorial dynasty:  the Duvaliers.

Funny, how few degrees of separation there are sometimes.

Great research, cx. Keep it coming. In my neck of the woods, tick-borne Lyme Disease is the scourge. We had a bit of West Nile Virus around too, and some other miscellaneous nasties that affect fish, sheep, birds, deer, and mice. All courtesy of the mad scientists at Plum Island.

PDF, I odn't knwo what your background is, but can you or Phasma or someone help expalin what the last document may mean in laymen's terms.

This is meant to be constructive criticism, not an attack.

I believe that last piece may have imporant information, but I don't know (personally) what it would be.

My background is not much in the way of biology/biochemistry.

Hi and sorry!
The last one is not meant for reading in entirety, but does admit straight from the Air Force that Mefloquine is no longer an effective malaria prophylaxis medication due to the fact that it is resisted by some strains of malaria.

The doc itself, http://www.phsource.us/PH/PDF/PARA/Public%20Health%20Glossary.pdf, is called "PUBLIC HEALTH GLOSSARY: A Terms and Definitions Guide for US Air Force Public Health Professionals"
As you can see the definitions are quite short! It's almost as though most medical personnel operate at the layman level of knowledge, simply following orders. When doctors start acting like this, society can't hold for long.. but that's another story lol!

And about the protozoa,

See, these guys here talk about physical ways to combat malaria: http://www.malariajournal.com/content/4/1/12
They talk about water quality and infrastructure etc. as a way to fight the disease; i.e. technology, education, advances.
Others are talking about drugs and vaccines.
But where sanitation is not being addressed and food is not priority one either, and there is no clean water, it would not matter if people were immune to malaria because there are always other diseases, and they would be dying of malnutrition and immune damage anyway. Malaria is a problem, but it's also a tool for globalist agendas that deal harshly with common people.

and i do post some very random stuff, sorry about that!! not expert here lol

Is melfloquine the current standard treatment?

UsesMefloquine is used to prevent malaria (malaria prophylaxis) and also in the treatment of chloroquine-resistant falciparum malaria. As mefloquine resistance spreads, mefloquine has started to lose its efficacy.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines to prevent malaria, Mefloquine is no longer the drug of choice to treat malaria (and it is not necessarily the best drug to prevent malaria) caused by chloroquine-resistant Plasmodium vivax.[1]

Mefloquine has shown efficacy in an in vitro assay against progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). Biogen Idec has announced a clinical trial of mefloquine in HIV-related PML, to be completed in november 2010.[2][3]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mefloquine

------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, i don't know how recently it stopped being used to treat Malaria (according to the article it was stillused to treat falciparum -- though it appears from your article that it is no longer necessarily effective against that, if I am reading it right).

It appears to still be used as a prophylactic gainst various forms of malaria.

I wonder how effective it really is at that.

And, I wonder what IS the current standard treatment now.

Now, I want to look more into this again.

Thanks.

Treatment

Further information: Antimalarial drug


When properly treated, a patient with malaria can expect a complete recovery.[79] The treatment of malaria depends on the severity of the disease. Uncomplicated malaria is treated with oral drugs. Whether patients who can take oral drugs have to be admitted depends on the assessment and the experience of the clinician. Severe malaria requires the parenteral administration of antimalarial drugs. The traditional treatment for severe malaria has been quinine but there is evidence that the artemisinins are also superior for the treatment of severe malaria.[80] A large clinical trial is currently under way to compare the efficacy of quinine and artesunate in the treatment of severe malaria in African children.[citation needed]

Active malaria infection with P. falciparum is a medical emergency requiring hospitalization. Infection with P. vivax, P. ovale or P. malariae can often be treated on an outpatient basis. Treatment of malaria involves supportive measures as well as specific antimalarial drugs. Most antimalarial drugs are produced industrially and are sold at pharmacies. However, as the cost of such medicines are often too high for most people in the developing world, some herbal remedies (such as Artemisia annua tea)[81] have also been developed, and have gained support from international organisations such as Médecins Sans Frontières. The most effective strategy recommended by WHO is the combination therapy ACT (artemether and lumefantrine) or FDC (Simplified Fixed-Dose Combination) with artesunate and amodiaquine in order to avoid the development of drug resistance against artemisinin-based therapies. Herbal teas only provide varying amounts of artemisinin and are not the treatment of choice particularly in severe Falciparium malaria.

Good thing the EU is outlawing those somehwhat effective herbal medicines though -- not.

Yeah, I try not to throw any desks any more, though sometimes it does seem like a logical way to get the attention of some unruly teenagers.

Their brains aren't completely wired, and sometimes it is very difficult to put up with their crap nowadays -- totally out of control (no self-discipline).

It's not as bad here as in America, though.

Still, this place becomes more like America every day, so the day ain't far off when it won't make much difference what side of the pond you are on.

Young people are rapidly becoming unteachable.  Cultural disintegration.
