One flu over the chicken’s pen!

New methods have been devised by the Chinese, Indian and US researchers, independant of each other wherein three different techniques to efficiently diagnose and/or cure the dreaded avian bird flu that had caused many human as well as animal casualties across the globe.

The three links offer more as to how exactly these work and their effect in fighting bird flu.


Fluchip, a microchip covered with bits of genetic material from many different flu strains, not only reduces the time needed for diagnosis of the A(H5N1) flu to less than a day from a week or more, but also is able to identify the exact flu causing strain.The identification process will be drastically simplified and would be applicable at remote places where there is relatively low bio-safety.

      However, the vaccines recently produced by India as well as by China, are aimed at the CURRENT H5N1 STRAIN and will be of no help if the virus mutates in to a real human virus strain.

      As you know, H5N1 is a Bird Flu virus, which is NOT supposed to be killing people.

      The new vaccines could well help with the current H5N1 strain, but if the virus mutates in to a human virus, as it did back in 1918, the above mentioned vaccines will not provide any protection against the new strain.

      In that case, these vaccines can only mislead every one in to a false sense of security, as well as resulting in a wastage of badly needed resources.
