* ►January 21, 2010 - Stillbirth heartbreak after swine flu jab - The Standard, Hong Kong - "A 37-year-old woman's child was stillborn on Tuesday - just weeks after she received a vaccination against human swine flu (H1N1). The woman was 28 weeks' pregnant when she was admitted to Tuen Mun Hospital after she reported decreased fetal movement and no heart sound could be detected. A spokesman for the Centre for Health Protection said there is 'no medical evidence presently to suggest that the intrauterine death was related to the vaccination.' But he said cases of stillbirths following swine flu vaccinations have also been recorded overseas. 'However, so far, no causal relationship has been found between [the] vaccination and stillbirths.'"

* ►January 21, 2010 - Disease threat as vaccination rate drops - Australia is facing the re-emergence of diseases not seen in wide circulation for decades, with childhood vaccination rates now in a serious decline. - - "Dr Djakic said part of the problem was the federal government's move to end an immunisation incentive scheme, which funded GPs to set up vaccination recall and reminder systems in their practices. The scheme ensured parents were notified about their child's need to have any outstanding injections, particularly as they reached their pre-school years. Dr Djakic said another worrying factor was the promotion of 'misinformation', often by groups on the internet, who he said were opposed to vaccinations on the basis of 'very questionable data'. 'There is a very active element out there parading a lot of misinformation about vaccination,' he said."

For some reason this vaccine-denier crowd strikes fear into politicians, regulators and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. The antivaccine advocates are led by actress Jenny McCarthy, who believes vaccines may cause autism, even though the CDC, the American Association of Pediatrics and even the FDA all say there is zero evidence of a link."

* ►January 21, 2010 - Swiss donors turn down $27.4 million request - Refusal based on less number of children immunised in 2008 than 2007 - The News International, Pakistan - "In what could come as a big blow to Pakistan’s efforts on containing the high incidence of infectious diseases, including polio, GAVI Alliance — a Switzerland-based grouping of public and private donors — has turned down the Ministry of Health’s request for over $27.4 million funding under the Immunisation Services Support (ISS) Programme.

* ►January 20, 2010 - Novartis flu vaccine additive boosts wide protection - * Adjuvants provide wide flu response * Might help protect against mutant versions of virus - Reuters - "Tests in the laboratory suggested the so-called adjuvant, called MF59, helped the immune system counteract not only the H5N1 virus in the current experimental bird flu vaccine, but mutant viruses as well. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration study, published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, suggests using vaccines with adjuvants may protect patients against even more types of flu viruses than they are being vaccinated against. 'MF59 adjuvant improves the immune response to a H5N1 vaccine by inducing qualitative and quantitative expansion of the antibody repertoires with protective potential,' Hana Golding of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and colleagues wrote."

In other words, some inflamed appendixes won't burst, no matter how long you wait to remove them. 'I don't think the disease is as straightforward as we thought, and I believe it needs to be revisited,' says senior author Edward Livingston, chief of gastrointestinal and endocrine surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Though the cause of appendicitis isn't known, Livingston's study links non-rupturing — but not ruptured — disease to viral infections, an association supported by reports of clusters, or outbreaks, of appendicitis cases."
