Jun 30, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – A spokesman for Roche, the maker of oseltamivir (Tamiflu), said yesterday that Denmark’s report of resistance to the drug in a patient with novel H1N1 (swine) influenza, the first reported finding of its kind, wasn’t surprising and that the news underscores the importance of monitoring for any viral changes.David Reddy, who leads Roche’s influenza task force, told Bloomberg News that experts know that during seasonal influenza outbreaks, patients can develop resistance. “We fully expect that this can also occur during treatment with a new flu strain,” he said.He characterized what occurred in the Danish patient as “drug-induced resistance” that developed when a low dose of medication was used, as opposed to the more widespread resistance that occurs when a flu virus acquires new characteristics, which has happened over the past 2 years with the seasonal H1N1 strain.World Health Organization (WHO) spokesman Dick Thompson said today that the Danish case is isolated and has no public health implications, Reuters reported. “But we must remain alert as the virus can change at any time and we must not be complacent,” he added.The antiviral resistance finding will not prompt any changes in the WHO antiviral recommendations, Thompson told Reuters.Roche said it is monitoring drug resistance in several countries, and health officials in several nations, including the United States, are also watching for changes in the virus. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in its most recent surveillance report, released Jun 24, that of 191 novel H1N1 isolates that have been tested for resistance to neuraminidase inhibitors, none showed resistance.The CDC recommends treatment with oseltamivir or zanamivir for all patients who have confirmed, probable, or suspected novel H1N1 infections who are hospitalized or are at high risk for complications.Carolyn Bridges, MD, associate director of epidemiologic science in the CDC’s influenza division, told National Public Radio that though the United States hasn’t detected any antiviral resistance in the new virus, it will likely occur here eventually. She said the novel flu virus has an “N1” gene that is very different than the “N1” of the seasonal H1N1 virus, so perhaps the pandemic virus isn’t as susceptible to the antiviral resistance mutation seen with the seasonal H1N1 strain.See also:CDC influenza surveillance report for week ending Jun 20

CNTB Director Kristjan Staničić pointed out that during the pandemic, the CNTB created campaigns and maintained the visibility of Croatia through the media and social networks, which enabled a certain tourist traffic to be realized even at this time. In accordance with the dynamics of the gradual opening of borders, the activities of this campaign were carried out towards markets that are easily accessible and have a similar epidemiological situation. “Many airlines will start operating in July and August, including Pula Airport, which will intensify tourist traffic in Istria, but also affect the extension of the tourist season.”, Stanicic added. He added that the CNTB systematized all important information and instructions on its official website and participated in the creation of the EnterCroatia application, and that key partners and tourists were informed through the CNTB offices. He mentioned that a lot is being done to restart the airline. Finally, let’s say that she attended the meeting and Assistant at the Ministry of Tourism Monika Udovicic, who emphasized that the Ministry was extremely sensitive to private renters, reduced the sojourn tax and tourist membership fee, which proved to be good, because according to the results in Istria, guests obviously felt much better in private accommodation.

Momay, photographer for the local paper Midland Review, was declared missing after 57 bodies, including those of 31 other journalists, were dug from mass graves where their bodies were dumped by the Ampatuans. “I am thankful to CenterLaw lawyers for never giving up on them. Giving up was never an option for me,” added Castillo, who was now based in United States./PN Castillo also noted that the first three years was the fight to file a case against the perpetrators, while it took about 3 years before Momay’s name was included in the list of those killed in the carnage. “You know, if only the perpetrators will show remorse, kahit papano mababawasan ‘yung bigat,”Castillo said.
