Biotech Firm Admits Vaccine Manufacturing Not Timely or Effective For Pandemics

Biotech firm Replikins Ltd., which has analyzed the H1N1 virus' genomic data issued its latest biochemical analysis of the virus suggesting the pandemic has peaked and that current biological methods of vaccine production are ineffective.

The company has analyzed the H1N1 virus' genomic data from the 1918 pandemic through the prediction, outbreak, and progress of the current H1N1 pandemic. The new data shows that the lethality of the H1N1 ("Swine Flu") virus has dropped from its peak of 3.7 (s.d. 4.5) during the virus's current outbreak in the spring of 2009 to resting non-epidemic levels this week of 2.0 (s.d. 0.1). The H1N1 virus' infectivity count, however, remains increased.

The company issued an interim advance report of this decrease in lethality on September 30, 2009. That report has now been confirmed by the current additional Replikins data and by the recent CDC epidemiological reports of declining total hospitalizations and deaths, and declining pediatric deaths from H1N1.

Without advance warning, the current biological methods of vaccine production cannot possibly meet the growing needs of a human population that today exceeds 6.7 billion. The current H1N1 Pandemic demonstrates the inherent limitations of biological vaccines, which simply do not permit the timely delivery of vaccine in sufficient quantities before a "hit-and-run" emergent viral disease like H1N1 has come and gone.

Editor's note: This analysis by Replikins Ltd, regarding the peaking of the pandemic, does incorporate any new changes to the H1N1 virus including mutations now observed in North America, and South America, Asia and Europe which have demonstrated a more lethal fatality rate.
