HHS to buy 20,000 courses of anthrax antitoxin

first_imgJun 20, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – The federal government announced plans today to buy 20,000 treatment courses of an experimental anthrax antitoxin from Human Genome Sciences Inc. (HGS) for $165 million. HGS said ABthrax was the first experimental treatment for anthrax to be evaluated in a clinical study after the 2001 anthrax attacks. “This important addition to the Strategic National Stockpile will provide physicians a way to neutralize the deadly toxin anthrax bacteria produces,” Dr. Gerald Parker, HHS’s acting assistant secretary for public health emergency preparedness, said in the news release. According to HGS, the HHS decision to award the new contract was based on the combination of HHS’s testing of ABthrax and the company’s preclinical and clinical trial results. Under the contract, HGS said it must complete additional laboratory and clinical testing to support a license application to the FDA and to support the use of ABthrax in patients with inhalational anthrax if the need arises before licensing. Full payment for the product, called ABthrax, is contingent on its licensing by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said in a news release. Watkins said the company expects to start delivering ABthrax to HHS in 2008, making it the first HGS product to the reach the market. But the HHS announcement predicted that delivery will begin in 2009. See also: “We found it is the toxin which accounted for the majority of anthrax-related deaths during the anthrax attacks of 2001,” said Parker. Five people died of inhalational anthrax in that episode, and another 17 people had anthrax illness. Jun 20 HHS news releasehttp://archive.hhs.gov/news/press/2006pres/20060620.html ABthrax (raxibacumab) is described as a human monoclonal antibody to protective antigen, a component of the anthrax toxin. In October 2005, HHS awarded HGS, based in Rockville, Md., a $1.8 million contract to supply 10 grams of the product for testing purposes, with an option for HHS to buy up to 100,000 doses within a year. No product for blocking anthrax toxin is currently available. The disease can be prevented with a vaccine and treated with antibiotics. But antibiotic treatment for inhalational anthrax must begin fairly early in the course of illness, because antibiotics are not effective after Bacillus anthracis has released its toxin into the blood. H. Thomas Watkins, HGS president and CEO, today called ABthrax “a significant step forward” in treating inhalational anthrax. “HGS has demonstrated the efficacy of ABthrax in multiple preclinical studies in relevant animal models, and its safety and tolerability in a Phase 1 clinical trial in healthy adults,” he said in a news release.

Who Should Make the First Move?.

first_imgLifestyleRelationships Who Should Make the First Move?. by: – June 28, 2011 33 Views   no discussions Share Sharing is caring! Sharecenter_img Tweet Share by Rich Santos, Marie ClairePhoto Credit: Neil KirkHe Said…The other day my friend asked me how I’d react if a girl asked me out. I told her I’d be ecstatic, because it would take away all of the work I had to do: the waiting 2.038 days to call her, the wondering, the worrying, figuring out what to say on the phone. But then I took a step back and realized that every girl who has asked me out, I’ve said yes to regardless of whether I was interested or not. I like to give everyone a shot, and I totally respect a girl who finds me attractive enough to ask out. So, yes, guys love it when a girl takes the initiative. But just remember that the same problem exists for you if you ask us out: We might just say yes and unintentionally give you the wrong idea. Bottom line, it is fair game for either gender to make the move, and it’s always good to shake things up! So, go ahead — keep us on our toes.She Said…Anyone should be able to make the first move. There is only one first move that is the grandest of them all — the very first initial interaction that signals interest between couples. That can come with a handshake, a flirty smile, the passing of a business card, or the inquiry for a phone number. A woman might make a perceivably smaller first move than a man might. She’ll engage more in conversation with him but may not ask for the phone number. Her first subtle move, however, signals him to make the bolder second move. That same scenario can work in the reverse way as well. As long as men and women stay within their comfort zones when plotting a first move, there isn’t much chance for it to go wrong. As long as we read the signals correctly, the eventual first move should end up in our favor, no matter who is taking the initial step.last_img read more

Oliseh: Why I can never consider Super Eagles job again

first_imgFormer Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, has revealed why he will never coach the Nigeria national team again, given his unpleasant past experience. “Truth is, we have a foreign coach now and from what I heard and know, he is being paid four times the wages Stephen Keshi and I were paid and these are two players who won trophies for Nigeria. “I’ve never heard Gernot Rohr complain about wages. Keshi, while he was coaching, was always complaining, when I was coaching for four months, I was unpaid, for six months my assistants were unpaid, so I had to leave the job; we were also being frustrated.” The former Super Eagles captain also highlighted some of the lofty plans he had for the three-time African champions before he left the side after 14 games with only two losses. “I had good plans for the team. You will notice that at a time I brought in [Wilfred] Ndidi, Alex Iwobi, Kelechi Iheanacho, young players who are dominating now,” he continued. “I brought in a world-class goalkeeper [Carl Ikeme] because I felt the old breed were ready to leave. “The same philosophy I used while with the Eagles was the same philosophy France used at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. read also:Oliseh joins anti-covid-19 campaign makes case for the elderly “Sometimes you ask yourself questions about Nigeria. You won laurels for the country as a player, you’re doing well as a coach, you were about qualifying for the World Cup and you’re unpaid for four months.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Oliseh had a great impact during his time with the West Africans as a player and was part of the side that won the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations. In 2015, he was appointed as coach of the Super Eagles taking over from another former international Stephen Keshi, who guided the side to clinch the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa. Oliseh, however, endured a torrid time while in charge of the West Africans and complained of poor treatment from his employers, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF). The former Super Eagles captain has recalled the events that led him to quit his role as manager of the side in 2016. “No, I don’t have the intention of ever coaching the [Super] Eagles again,’ Oliseh said. “I loved working with the boys, I love coaching my country, but the atmosphere around it was no longer healthy. “I didn’t want the job anymore. Health-wise I was not feeling too good; secondly, we were owed salaries. I was spending money on my health and on my team. I just couldn’t die on the job.
