CDC: Ebola confirmed in Dallas patient

DALLAS — A patient in a Dallas hospital has been confirmed to have the deadly Ebola virus, News 8 has learned.
That person has been held in "strict isolation" at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas as he or she was evaluated for possible exposure to the virus.
This is the first case of Ebola confirmed in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control will hold a news conference at 4:30 p.m. in Atlanta regarding the diagnosis.
The CDC will decide whether it is necessary to move the patient to another facility. There are five medical facilities in the U.S. that have high level isolation facilities. The CDC will also investigate how many people the patient has had contact with.  READ MORE

Virus probed in paralysis cases in 9 Colorado kids

NEW YORK (AP) -- Health officials are investigating nine cases of muscle weakness or paralysis in Colorado children and whether the culprit might be a virus causing severe respiratory illness across the country.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday sent doctors an alert about the polio-like cases and said the germ - enterovirus 68 - was detected in four out of eight of the sick children who had a certain medical test. The status of the ninth case is unclear.
The virus can cause paralysis READ MORE

Mystery illness plagues girls in Colombia

El Carmen de Bolivar (Colombia) (AFP) - A mystery illness is plaguing girls in this town in northern Colombia, and locals say a vaccine against the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus, or HPV, is to blame.
First their hands and feet feel cold. Then they go pale and cannot move. Some convulse and fall to the floor.
In El Carmen de Bolivar, near the port of Cartagena, dozens of teenagers have experienced similar symptoms. Some have even lost consciousness.
"They vaccinated me in May and I started fainting in August. My legs became heavy and I couldn't feel my hands anymore. When I woke up, I was in the hospital," recalled 15-year-old Eva Mercado.
She passed out seven times in a month.  READ MORE

Big Pharma Criminality no Longer a Conspiracy Theory: Bribery, Fraud, Price Fixing now a matter of public record

Those of us who have long been describing the pharmaceutical industry as a “criminal racket” over the last few years have been wholly vindicated by recent news. Drug and vaccine manufacturer Merck was caught red-handed by two of its own scientists faking vaccine efficacy data by spiking blood samples with animal antibodies. GlaxoSmithKline has just been fined a whopping $3 billion for bribing doctors, lying to the FDA, hiding clinical trial data and fraudulent marketing. Pfizer, meanwhile has been sued by the nation’s pharmacy retailers for what is alleged as an “overarching anticompetitive scheme” to keep generic cholesterol drugs off the market and thereby boost its own profits.
The picture that’s emerging is one of a criminal drug industry that has turned to mafia tactics in the absence of any real science that would prove their products to be safe or effective. The emergence of this extraordinary evidence of bribery, scientific fraud, lying to regulators and monopolistic practices that harm consumers is also making all those doctors and “skeptics” who defended Big Pharma and vaccines eat their words.

Silver used in athletic clothing for biometric data

Silver is playing an important, if not critical role in the growing world of wearable technology.
At the new intersection where fashion and biometrics meet, silver provides the conduit in innovative athletic clothing that transmits sought-after biometric data, such as the wearer’s real time heartbeat, to a sensor that displays the data.
The fashionable Polo Tech Shirt, introduced by Ralph Lauren at the just-completed 2014 U.S. Open Tennis Championship in New York City, and worn in its public debut by the ball boys and girls, has bio-sensing silver fibers woven directly into the core fabric of the nylon shirt. The high conductivity of silver, intertwined with the fiber of the form-fitting shirt, is a key to the technology that tracks and transmits the wearer’s heart rate, stress level, distance and breathing data in real time and streams the biometric data directly to a smart phone or other device. The Polo Tech Shirt is a forerunner of a line of athletic shirts and tech-enhanced dress shirts that the company said will be available from Ralph Lauren next year. READ MORE

Virus hitting Midwest could be 'tip of iceberg,' CDC official says

(CNN) -- A respiratory virus is sending hundreds of children to hospitals in Missouri and possibly throughout the Midwest and beyond, officials say.
The unusually high number of hospitalizations reported now could be "just the tip of the iceberg in terms of severe cases," said Mark Pallansch, a virologist and director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Division of Viral Diseases.
"We're in the middle of looking into this," he told CNN on Sunday. "We don't have all the answers yet."
Ten states have contacted the CDC for assistance in investigating clusters of enterovirus -- Colorado, North Carolina, Georgia, Ohio, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Kentucky.
Enteroviruses, which bring on symptoms like a very intense cold, aren't unusual. They're actually common. When you have a bad summer cold, often what you have is an enterovirus, he said. The season often hits its peak in September. READ MORE

Heating Silver Nanoparticles to Kill Cancer Cells

Killing cancer cells with heat is not a new idea, but researchers at Dartmouth- Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire, are using silver nanoparticles to help minimize damage to adjacent healthy cells during the heating process.
In their experiments, the researchers introduce inactive, metallic nanoparticles containing silver, gold or iron to cancer cells which absorb the microscopic particles. The nanoparticles are then shot with magnetic energy, infrared light, or radio waves. The interaction creates heat that kills cancer cells. In addition, when precisely applied, the heat can also prompt the body’s immune system to kill cancer cells that have not been heated. The goal is to kill cancer cells but leave unharmed healthy nearby tissue and cells. The small size of the nanoparticles helps to focus the heat therapy.
“The use of heat to treat cancer was first recorded by ancient Egyptians, but has reemerged with high-tech modern systems as a contributor to the new paradigm of fighting cancer with the patient’s own immune system,” said Steve Fiering, PhD, Norris Cotton Cancer Center researcher and professor of Microbiology and Immunology, and of Genetics at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.
The Dartmouth-Hitchcock team is also using nanoparticles to deliver anti-cancer drugs with pinpoint accuracy. “Our lab’s approach differs from most in that we use nanoparticles to stimulate the immune system to attack tumors and there are a variety of potential ways that can be done,” said Fiering. “Perhaps the most exciting potential of nanoparticles is that although very small, they can combine multiple therapeutic agents. Now that efforts to stimulate anti-tumor immune responses are moving from the lab to the clinic, the potential for nanoparticles to be utilized to improve an immune- based therapy approach is attracting a lot of attention from both scientists and clinicians. Clinical usage does not appear too distant.” Link
