Mers, the new SARS: the discovery, patent, and the international intrigue

ROME - The Mers virus , dubbed the new SARS spread from the Middle East to Italy. Since the discovery of coronavirus occurred in Saudi Arabia to the patent registered by Dutch researchers, for Eugenia Tognotti La Stampa looming international intrigue. Intrigue fact of viruses, patents, royalties for vaccines and diagnostic tests that reassures those who fear a new epidemic like SARS, that ten years ago killed 800 people in the world.

Eugenia Tognotti reconstructs the "first time" of the virus:

"The story begins in June last year, when the microbiologist Ali Mohamed Zaki who works at Soliman Fakeeh Hospital in Jeddah is faced with a case of death due to severe pneumonia and acute renal failure. Failing to identify the cause with the routine diagnosis, Zaki decided to send a sample of the virus - in order to have a board - an eminent virologist Ron Fouchier of Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam. It does so without informing the authorities of his country, fearing, perhaps, their reluctance to conduct inspections in view of the pilgrimage to Mecca. "

The Netherlands replied that it is a human coronavirus unknown and linked to that of bats, explains the Tognotti:

"The battle-hardened group of Dutch research does not waste time: after the sequencing of the genome, in November, is quick to ask the patent and signing contracts with manufacturers of vaccines and antivirals. It also publishes data on the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine (entering one of the authors Zaki). So, in fact, the EMC, a European institution, becomes the intellectual property of a virus which has been isolated and grown in Saudi Arabia. "

Despite the indignation of the authorities of Saudi Arabia for the circumvention of international procedures on reports of new pathogens, the patent is Dutch. The researchers of the world ask for a sample of the coronavirus to study it, but get it with many limitations:

"Recalling the International Health Regulations of 2005 which commits all Member States to report to the World Health Organization and unidentified unusual cases of serious illness of international interest. It is certain that at the time, responsible for laboratories all over the world that require a sample of the virus get it, but with many limitations: they must commit to not send to other material and not to use it for economic purposes (Material Transfer Agreement). "

The virus can then be distributed, but the authorship of vaccines and tests remains with the pharmaceutical companies that will buy the rights. But most of all afraid of the risk of epidemic of Ramadan pilgrimages to Mecca could involve, pilgrimages and flow of people in the place where the first outbreak of Mers has been turned on:

"On the next" little pilgrimage "on the occasion of Ramadan stretches the shadow of this" new "virus. A threat that is not about just one country, but the whole world, said WHO Director-General, Margaret Chan, during an international meeting. "We can not afford - he explained - that patents and races to publish in scientific journals impede research for the benefit of public health." We really hope that it is not a vox clamantis in the desert. "

Re: BREAKING UPDATE April 21st, 2014 / 421st case / 145 deaths from H7N9 . MERS CoV 228 Cases, 92 deaths
Possible pandemic: the MERS could be the new SARS?

The virologist Nathan Wolfe provides a sketch of the new deadly virus that has recently also hit Italy, stressing the importance of a global commitment

Until a few days ago could still seem a remote threat, the MERS CoV, the new infection similar to SARS, it is now also landed in Italy. The first case was identified in Tuscany, where a foreigner than 45 years, returning from a trip to Jordan, was admitted to hospital with high fever, cough and respiratory failure. His current condition is good, but it remains in isolation.

Currently, the number of confirmed cases in Italy Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (CoV This is the meaning of MERS), rose to three: are infected with the virus two other people, including a child, who had been in close contact with the first patient. However, according to the Ministry of Health, although their conditions are good, as they remain under control.

The Minister of Health stated that Beatrice Lorenzin you are monitoring all the people who have had contact with the sick. The doctors, on the other hand, ensure that this virus is transmitted from person to person through close contact and prolonged exclusively.

Meanwhile, on the face of the latest news, Monday, June 3 have been identified a dozen new cases
MERS of Careggi hospital in Florence. These people tested positive to the virus have not been quarantined, as stated by Alessandro Bartoloni the clinic of infectious diseases of the Florentine hospital, because it does not show any signs. Their blood samples have been sent, however, Istituto Superiore di Sanità in Rome for further investigation.

Before that in Italy, the virus had landed in France, causing death by multiorgan failure of a 65 year old man returning from a holiday in Dubai. It was the first patient to be French died of MERS CoV.

According to data published last Wednesday by the World Health Organization (WHO), in September 2012 are now infected 49 people, 27 of them have died.

At the last World Health Assembly, which was held in Geneva, Switzerland, the Director General Margaret Chan called the virus "a threat to the whole world."

"The problem is not the management of individual countries," he says. "We do not know where the virus hides in nature. We do not know how people are infected. As long as we do not have the answer to these questions we can not give any indication on prevention. This alarm bells. And we have a duty to to react. "

One of the features of CoV MERS that worries WHO officials is the speed with which it is spreading globally. The majority of confirmed cases originated in Saudi Arabia, but they have been reported in Italy, France, Germany, Qatar, Jordan and Britain.

The contemporary life makes us more vulnerable to pandemics? We asked the virologist Nathan Wolfe (pictured above right), author of The Viral Storm and National Geographic emerging explorer, to understand what we know and what, however, we ignore this new deadly virus. Wolfe, founder and executive chairman of Global Viral and professor at Stanford University, is working to create an early warning system to predict and contain new viruses before they become global pandemics.

This new virus was identified as a new coronavirus. How does it work?

The new virus, called Middle East recently Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus, or MERS CoV, is part of the coronavirus family, these viruses can cause symptoms ranging from common cold to serious respiratory ailments.

We have not yet figured out how the virus spreads, but the transmission from human to human has already been observed in various groups, especially in case of close contact between people, such as usually occurs between patients and caregivers. SARS - also caused by a coronavirus - spread by inhalation, through droplets produced by coughing or sneezing of infected people.

What distinguishes this virus from that of SARS?

Both viruses belong to the same family, coronaviruses, but are genetically different enough to imply that they are developed independently of each other.

Why this new coronavirus spreads so quickly? What information we have about it, and what, however, still do not know?

We know that the virus that MERS was detected for the first time in the Middle East in September 2012. Last week, the World Health Organization reported a total of 49 infections and 27 deaths in eight countries, including Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Jordan, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and France. The MERS produces severe respiratory symptoms, including fever and cough, as well as gastrointestinal symptoms, pulmonary and renal crisis.

But there is still much to discover about the virus MERS. We do not know how it originated and, even if the transmission from human to human is established, we do not have a precise idea of the transmission mechanism. We do not know yet to determine the percentage of people who die than those infected (ie the rate of mortality). Though 50 percent of detected cases ended with a death, it may be that they were only identified individuals with the most severe symptoms. Those who have milder symptoms may not have gone to the hospital and is less likely to be identified: if it were so, the current mortality rate of 50 percent could be an overestimation.

She spends a lot of time searching for new virus around the world. As you realize you have in front of a new one?

Regularly collect blood samples from people and animals throughout the world. Advances in techniques for analyzing microbes have increased our ability to find new viruses. For example, we recently identified a new rhabdovirus from three cases of acute hemorrhagic fever in central Africa. We understand that the virus was new for two reasons: first, because he had unique genetic characteristics, other than those of all other human viruses previously identified, and second, because the symptoms that caused had been observed previously only for virus infections other viral families, such as Ebola, Marburg and yellow fever.

She has founded two associations, and one of their goals is to stop pandemics. How can we avoid that MERS becomes pandemic?

We have created two associations - Global Viral and Metabiota - working together to address the various aspects of pandemics and biological threats. Global Viral focuses on basic research, and scientific appearance, while Metabiota assists governments and other organizations to contain the risks associated with pandemics and other biological threats. Our mission is to be able to detect viruses before they become pandemics. And that is why we work together with governments, NGOs and other associations in order to arrange surveillance systems, laboratory and data analysis to monitor the virus in the early stages of diffusion.

We must be concerned for our pets?

As there is to be feared in particular that pets are infected, it is possible that the virus attacks MERS them. For example, the SARS coronavirus, which originated in bats, was observed both in dogs and cats.

What is the most important thing he has learned by collecting blood samples?

In the last ten years we have collected more than 200,000 blood samples from animals and humans. Probably the most important lesson we have learned is that there is much more out there than we know!

The frequency of pandemics s ta increasing?

Several factors, including the large increase in mobility of humans and animals, have undoubtedly increased the frequency of pandemics. When we move to the world - and we do the same with our pets - or increasing the complexity of our food supply cycle, we encourage the spread of viruses.

This virus was originated in an animal? Because most viruses emerge from animals rather than man?

The virus MERS is definitely passed from one animal to the human being. The most likely hypothesis is that it was a bat. Pets are an incredible reservoir of virus, now known or yet to be discovered: each species has its own repertoire of microbes. This set of microorganisms, also, is not static: it is subject to constant mutations and a continuous mixing genes, and these mechanisms have the power to create a great team of potential pathogens that can infect us. Although some existing viruses will continue to spread in humans due to mutations, it is estimated that 75 percent of emerging infectious diseases originate from animals.

What measures are taking WHO officials? What will they do if the virus will continue to spread?

We are experiencing a great time. If the risks of pandemics have increased dramatically in parallel has also increased the overall level of scientific knowledge and public health. Among the positive trends that we were able to observe during the recent outbreaks of H7N9 and MERS, there is a high level of international collaboration and transparency. If viruses do not respect borders between countries, our efforts to combat it must be truly global.

What can we do to protect ourselves?

Protect humanity on a global level requires long-term commitments to monitor closely the hot spots - such as, for example, places where animals and humans are closely - and resources to equip field teams, laboratories and scientists the tools they need to monitor these situations and react accordingly. Programs such as the Emerging Pandemic Threats Program of the Agency for International Development, the Cooperative Biological Engagement Program and the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center of the Ministry of Defense, and a growing number of foundations - such as the Skoll Global Threats Fund and the Wellcome Trust - working all over the world with associations like ours to contribute to the development and strengthening of this type of initiative. These programs have already achieved several successes, but we need long-term efforts, and we are only at the beginning of the work.

H7N9: Chicken, quail catch and shed high volumes of new H7N9

[link to crofsblogs.typepad.com]

From link:
But the chickens and quails infected at the Athens laboratory shed H7N9 virus from their nasal passages. That suggests if people testing birds for the virus only swabbed cloacal passages, they might not find evidence of infection

"The data we produced experimentally ... would suggest that chickens, possibly quail could be amplifiers of the virus and are causing a lot of environmental contamination. Pigeons appear not to be really ... perpetrators in spreading this virus around."
And that could explain why all those researchers, thanklessly wiping birds' bums, found so little H7N9.

WHO, Saudi reports raise MERS-CoV count

The WHO statement listed the total MERS-CoV tally at 54 cases and 30 deaths. Today's Saudi announcement would increase the death toll to 31.

But the true numbers of MERS-CoV cases and deaths are somewhat unclear, since another case and three other deaths reported by the Saudi MOH in recent days have not yet been mentioned by the WHO. Yesterday the MOH reported a case in an 83-year-old man in Al-Ahsa, and on Jun 1 the ministry reported the deaths of three patients whose cases had been announced earlier.

H7N9: One mutation away from real trouble?

[link to crofsblogs.typepad.com]

Here, we report that the H7N9 HA shows limited binding to human receptors; however, should a single amino acid mutation occur, this would result in structural changes within the receptor binding site that allow for extensive binding to human receptors present in the upper respiratory tract.
