Calling all volunteers to test swine flu shots

By LAURAN NEERGAARD (AP) – 17 hours ago

WASHINGTON — The race is on: The government and vaccine makers are seeking thousands of volunteers, from babies to the elderly, to roll up their sleeves for the first swine flu shots — to test whether a new vaccine really will protect against this novel virus before its expected rebound in the fall.

On Wednesday the National Institutes of Health tapped a network of medical centers around the country to begin a series of studies, with the first shots to go into the arms of healthy adults, of any age, in early August. If there are no immediate safety concerns, such as allergic reactions, testing quickly would begin in children as young as 6 months.

The tests, plus additional research from vaccine manufacturers, are key as the government decides whether to offer swine flu vaccine to millions of Americans starting in mid-October — assuming that enough is produced by then — still a big question as the vaccine is proving hard to manufacture. Health authorities in other countries are looking to the U.S. studies, too, as they make their own plans.

It's crucial to test all ages. Unlike regular winter flu that is most dangerous to people over 65 and under 2, this new swine flu that has quickly spread around the globe seems to disproportionately target school-age children, teenagers and young adults.

Will the results come in time? "It's going to be very, very close," Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIH's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told The Associated Press.

"We are racing to provide them as much information as we possibly can," said Dr. Karen Kotloff of the University of Maryland School of Medicine, who is helping to lead the NIH study. She said doctors and other health workers already were asking about enrolling in the study themselves.

It promises to be a confusing fall, as doctors struggle to administer vaccine against the regular winter flu and tell patients to stay tuned for when and if they can later return for another shot or two of swine flu vaccine.

The test plan: All volunteers will get two swine flu shots, given 21 days apart. By early September, blood tests should show how much immune protection the initial dose triggered — and if a low-dose shot worked or a higher dose was needed. It will take another month to get information on the second shot.

Will parents want to enroll very young children? The NIH chose study hospitals with experience in testing vaccines on the very young, and "it's not a radically different vaccine from what they already get anyway," Fauci said.

The new swine flu strain is part of the H1N1 family of influenza viruses. We're used to that family. Some human strain of H1N1 has been included in regular influenza vaccine for 33 years, Fauci said — and the seasonal flu vaccine has a safe record for all ages. Yet because its a unique H1N1 strain, with genes that originated in swine, scientists worry that it may be harder than usual for a vaccine to trigger protection.

The swine flu vaccine "falls somewhere between a completely new vaccine and a strain change we do every year without clinical trials," said Dr. John Treanor of the University of Rochester, a government vaccine adviser.

As for safety, the studies will track the typical vaccine side effects — redness, swelling, fever, allergic reactions — and any unexpected immediate reaction.

"We expect this vaccine to be no different than seasonal (flu) vaccine. It ought to be extremely safe," said Dr. William Schaffner, a vaccine specialist at Vanderbilt University.

But the studies won't be large enough to catch any very rare side effect. The last mass vaccination against a different swine flu, in the U.S. in 1976, was marred by reports of paralyzing Guillain-Barre syndrome. Scientists could never prove whether that link was real or coincidence, but all flu vaccine today comes with a warning about Guillain-Barre — and the government has pledged intense monitoring for rare reactions if mass swine flu vaccinations go forward.

Included in the NIH studies are vaccines made by France-based Sanofi-Pasteur and CSL Ltd. Also Wednesday, CSL began a much smaller study of its vaccine in Australia, where the company is based.

All five U.S. providers of flu vaccine — including Britain's GlaxoSmithKline, Swiss-based Novartis AG and maker of the only nasal-spray vaccine, Maryland-based MedImmune — also will conduct their own studies in several thousand more volunteers. Thursday, the Food and Drug Administration will review their testing plans.

The NIH's study sites:

_University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore.

_University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa.

_Saint Louis University, St. Louis.

_Baylor College of Medicine, Houston.

_Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati.

_Emory University, Atlanta.

_Group Health Cooperative, Seattle.

_Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn.

Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., and Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C., will partner with two sites for part of the research.

After all the evidence presented , even morons on this site took the vaccine last year , so although I don't personally subscribe to the Darwinian theory , it might be best that we shouldn't get too upset this time....a culling of the terminally stupid is possibly the only way to alert the masses .

It should be VERY CLEAR by now to anyone who is not brain dead that vaccines are NOT meant to help. Even Bill Gates admits at a TED conference that vaccines need to be used to reduce world population figures in order to "solve global warming and lower CO2 emissions." [http://www.ted.com/talks/bill_gates.html]

What a freak! These elites aren't even trying to hide their agenda anymore.
The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.

Thanks guys,and yeah with regards to Gates,a slip of the tongue? is he being misunderstood?..i don't think so..i've read dozens of books on natural healthcare,naturopathy every one of them tell you all about vaccines..what they really do to your body,how unnatural they are,you get unprecedented inflammation for starters and that pretty much leads to a whole host of chronic problems,most not immediately apparent..that's how insidious they are,like the fluoride and gmo food i guess..the stuff does'nt kill you overnight.....from cancer to arthritis to autism..this is the real reason for vaccination...and how you really should be avoiding it.
Especially as we have vitamind3,which is effective and cheap...but like said,some people will always do what the government tells them to,government is good....look you are in debt,your food is contaminated,the war budget costs billions but you need to become poorer to pay for it even if you don't agree with it..look there are no jobs..the economy is folding,the bees are dying...i mean the list is endless,the irrefutable facts speak from themselves the cat is out the bag,i've drawn my line in the sand and i hope you have too!
THIS IS NOT A JOKE!!...or some ego trip,i know first hand how real all this is..i'm sick of it and i've had enough...it's not 'cool' to be an unconscious zombie anymore,where we fight amongst ourselves and take no real action or make no real difference in the world,let's stand united here as human beings...and go from there..

Just to agree with you - if people are dumb enough to fall for all the scaremongering and hype and want to queue up for a shot, let them! Reverse Darwinism may do us all a favour!
