HONG KONG, March 1 (Reuters) - Scientists in Hong Kong and the United States have developed an experimental H5N1 bird flu vaccine for people by piggybacking it on the well-tested and highly successful smallpox vaccine.Nowhere does it say which company is making this new & improved vaccine.
Initial tests on mice showed the vaccine to be highly effective, they told a news conference in Hong Kong on Sunday.
"It produced a lot of (H5N1) antibodies and the speed of antibody response was far higher with this strategy than the Sanofi one," said Malik Peiris, a microbiologist and bird flu expert at the University of Hong Kong.
Peiris was referring to Sanofi-Aventis's (SASY.PA) H5N1 bird flu vaccine for humans, which has been approved for use in the United States.
While H5N1 rarely infects people, experts fear it could mutate into a form that people could easily pass to one another, sparking a pandemic that could kill tens of millions and topple the global economy.That's one way to finish us off.
Meanwhile, somebody appears to be hard at work mutating H5N1 into "a form that people could easily pass to one another, sparkinga pandemic that could kill tens of millions and topple the global economy."
Coincidence? Hmm? This is exactly what the "experts fear."
You don't say. I wonder what the other way is.
Officials are trying to get to the bottom of how vaccine manufacturer Baxter International Inc. made "experimental virus material" based on a human flu strain but contaminated with the H5N1 avian flu virus and then distributed it to an Austrian company.
That company, Avir Green Hills Biotechnology, then disseminated the supposed H3N2 virus product to subcontractors in the Czech Republic, Slovenia and Germany. Authorities in the four European countries are looking into the incident, and their efforts are being closely watched by the World Health Organization and the European Centre for Disease Control.
Accidental release of a mixture of live H5N1 and H3N2 viruses - if that indeed happened - could have resulted in dire consequences. Nicoll said officials still aren't 100 per cent sure the mixture contained live H5N1 viruses. But given that ferrets exposed to the mixture died, it likely did.
H5N1 doesn't easily infect people, but H3N2 viruses do. They are one of two types of influenza A viruses that infect people each flu season.
If someone exposed to the mixture had been co-infected with H5N1 and H3N2, the person could have served as an incubator for a hybrid virus able to transmit easily to and among people. That mixing process, called reassortment, is one of two ways pandemic viruses are created.
But listen, there's NOTHING TO SEE HERE. Move along please.
Research published last summer by scientists at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control found that in the laboratory, H5N1 and H3N2 viruses mated readily. While less virulent than H5N1, a number of the offspring viruses appeared to retain at least a portion of the killing power of their dangerous parent.
Baxter International, which is based in Deerfield, Ill., said the contamination was the result of an error in its research facility in Orth-Donau, Austria.
The facility had been contracted by Avir Green Hills to make what Baxter refers to as "experimental virus material" based on human H3N2 viruses....
Avir Green Hills said in an email that it took possession of the material in late December. It later sent the product to the sub-contractors. The email said the material was stored and handled throughout under high biosafety conditions.
Alarm bells rang in early February when researchers at the Czech sub-contractor inoculated ferrets with the material and the animals promptly died. Baxter learned about the problem on Feb. 6, Bona said from Deerfield.
Ferrets are susceptible to human flu strains, but they don't die from those infections. Preliminary investigation found the material was contaminated with H5N1 flu virus, which is lethal to ferrets.
Nicoll said the fact the ferrets died supports the working assumption that there were live H5N1 viruses in the material Baxter produced.
You know how these people do it. They always have some horrible thing planned, and it happens "accidentally," and then after innocent people die, some big shots go around on tv expressing their "regret." And people believe them.
Bona said Baxter has identified how the contamination happened and has taken steps to ensure it doesn't happen again. He said Austrian authorities audited Baxter's Orth-Donau research operations after the problem came to light and are satisfied with the steps taken. [Just brush your hands together, we're all set.]
Baxter is the only flu vaccine manufacturer to work with wild type flu viruses, felt to be more dangerous than the altered and attenuated (weakened) viruses other manufacturers use. [Special.]
The company uses what is known as BSL3 level precautions in all its vaccine research facilities, Bona said. (Researchers at the U.S. CDC use BSL3-plus biocontainment when working with H5N1 viruses, a spokesperson for the agency said.)
People familiar with biosecurity rules are dismayed by evidence that human H3N2 and avian H5N1 viruses have somehow co-mingled in the Baxter research facility. That should not be allowed to happen, a number of experts insisted. [Yet it was, and nobody seems to be very upset. No heads rolling...nothing. Isn't that kind of odd?]
The company isn't shedding much light on how it did. [And they get away with that.]
"It was a combination of just the process itself, (and) technical and human error in this procedure," Bona said. When asked to elaborate, he said to do so would give away proprietary information about Baxter's production process. [Oh, like, who really runs this cock-up for the NWO crowd?]
Bona said when Baxter realized its error, it helped the various companies destroy the contaminated material and clean up their facilities. And staff who had been exposed to the contaminated product were assessed and monitored by infectious diseases doctors. They were also offered the antiviral drug oseltamivir (Tamiflu). [This is like Israel investigating its own war crimes.]
The at large war criminal and globalist KIssinger once made a statement that there was too many people on the planet and that number needed to drop by 2 billion.
Farmers call that "thinning the herd," when talking about cows but when referring to humans, that's called mass murder.
There was another of those "experiments" that got out of hand in Louisiana.
Seems like a government lab infected some skinks and armadillo's with leprosy and some accidentally escaped.
Why in the hell would they infect anything with Leprosy, since that disease has been on the decline and nearly extinct since the 1950's?
Another Zionist War Mongering outfit comes into existence.

Here's a copy of the email I sent to these shitheads:
Subject: Another "Echo Chamber"

Looks like the "Wars for Empire and Israel" party is back in full mode, putting out lie after lie, all to scare a gullible American public into fighting another war for Israel, this time against Iran.
You folks are shameless.
I've already seen the stories about how Iran is supposedly "stealing yellowcake" from the Congo. A story no doubt put out by the likes of you bottom feeders.
It worked swell in the lead up to the illegal and immoral invasion of Iraq, so why not try it again?
You care not how much grief and misery you spread around the world, but seem to take particular delight in raining death and destruction over Israel's "existential" enemies, which is pretty much anyone who Israel thinks might stand in the way of achieving their fantasy of an Eretz Israel.
Here's an idea!
Why not make the ME a nuclear free zone? Yes, ALL of the ME, including Israel.
That means Israel would have to get rid of those 200 or so nuke they have stored, ready to use against anyone and everything, but mostly against their favorite targets, Muslims.
You sorry bastards are the ones that need to "disappear from the face of the earth," not Iran.
We've been brainwashed many times that Iran is some type of Islamic head case, lead by "mad mullahs" who have scores of devoted followers.
If that is true, then how can one ignore that their head Ayatollah said that having or making nuclear weapons is a big NO-NO?
But dealing with reality is one thing you war mongers aren't good at, so I expect to see your "Wars for Israel" group on CSpan, along with other Zionist think tanks like AEI, issuing grave "fatwas" about what will happen if the USA doesn't bomb Iran back to the Stone Ages.
Zionist Think Tanks that seem to spend all their time figuring out how to get Americans fighting another war for Israel.
All I can say and I know it's not very eloquent is to "Fuck Off."
You are a tiger. No doubt about it. ;)
Israeli vaccine could provide universal answer to flu epidemics:
"We are now checking the recognition of the antibodies that an animal creates after vaccinations against the specific of the H5N1 (avian flu)," reported company president and CEO Dr. Ron Babecoff. "We are vaccinating animals with the vaccine - we're taking the blood and putting it together with proteins from H5N1 and seeing if there is recognition. We will have the lab results in a month."
Info from a fellow not-journalist.
Well, if you can't make money with Bernie Madoff and you've sucked all the money out of the US Treasury and your Jewish princess keeps demanding another Blue Fox coat, well, I guess you could make a shitload of money off a vaccine, but you'd first have to infect half the planet. Let's do the math...4 billion people. Half survive and need the vaccine. $72per dose times two doses = $144 times two billion. My calculator doesn't have that many zeros.
Regarding the investors:
Devash and his fellow investors, while they couldn't foresee the onset of avian flu specifically, knew that the need for a better approach to fighting the waves of flu outbreaks would become necessary.
"The writing was on the wall - it's a question of time for a pandemic will hit humanity, and we need to be ready," he said.
The results of Arnon's research have so far excited and inspired the company's backers.
In case you aren't scared yet, did I mention this is an Israeli company?
Here's more on the company:
BiondVax was founded in 2002 by four entrepreneurs: Prof. Ruth Arnon, whose research underpins the company, and who heads its science advisory board; president and CEO Dr. Ron Babecoff, qho has ten years experience in the pharmaceutical industry; former chairman Isaac (Itzik) Devash, who provided the company's initial financing; and COO & VP business development Adv.
Babecoff and Devash first met while serving in the IDF.
Devash says the market is huge.
Devash says, "We were stunned when we examined the mergers and acquisitions market in our industry.
Isaac Devash is a vocal zionist.
He is a business and social entrepreneur with thirteen years of international private equity and venture capital experience and several years of experience as an international Investment Banker with Credit Suisse First Boston in New York, London and Tokyo. He founded two private equity funds and forged strategic alliances with large global institutions including, Hambros Bank Plc, Nomura Japan, Jafco Singapore and Israel Discount Bank. Among Mr. Devash's successful exits are: Morecom (enabling the transmission of the internet over cable TV- that was sold to Liberate for $561 million), Israel Direct Insurance global operations and Shahal Telemedicine (world leader in telemedicine that was listed in Swiss stock market and that received an investment of $40 million from Philips). Before founding these funds, Mr. Devash managed the $157 million Renaissance Fund. More recently, he co-founded a biotechnology start-up company called BiondVax Pharmaceuticals that is developing a multi-season/multi-strain vaccine against the Influenza virus. Mr. Devash is the Founder and President of the Wharton-Penn Club of Israel and of the Harvard Business School Alumni Association of Israel. Mr. Devash serves on the Executive Board of Wharton for Europe, Africa and the Middle East and as a member of Board of Governors of Ben Gurion University in the Negev and the Board of Governors of Jerusalem College of Engineering. Mr. Devash holds a MBA from Harvard University Graduate School of Business Administration and an undergraduate degree from the Wharton School, Summa Cum Laude.
Those are very nice NWO bona fides. So since this vaccine was good to go back in 1996 (counting on fingers here), it looks like they've had 2+ years to perfect it. It must be really, *really* ready to go now, huh?
You nailed it Sis. Not enough zeroes.
...and not enough Zorros. I don't like what I'm seeing here, Sistah. A girl don't need a PHD to see evil in this Devash fellow's eyes.
Devash meets Babecoff while serving in the IDF. He is a professed zioinist. He is hungry for money and name recognition. He has the key to putting a stop to a deadly worldwide epidemic that he also has the ability to create.
The flow of jewish money into this company is staggering. They must have an epidemic if they are to receive a decent return.
Shit - the Finale Grande. The world will be falling on it's knees and praying for the zionists to save them. I'm beginning to doubt that Brandeis has an ethics class.
Here's an extensive list of scientists who were working on various plague vaccines when they met an untimely death.

Yes, indeed, Greg - It makes one wonder....
We have not heard the end of this little story. I'm getting rid of my birdfeeders.
