6 AUGUST 2009 GENEVA -- WHO is aware of some media reports that have expressed concern about the safety of vaccines for pandemic influenza. The public needs to be reassured that regulatory procedures in place for the licensing of pandemic vaccines, including procedures for expediting regulatory approval, are rigorous and do not compromise safety or quality controls.

8 JUILLET 2009 GENÈVE -- Sur la base d’analyses de laboratoire, les autorités du Danemark, du Japon et de la Région administrative spéciale de Hong Kong ont informé l’OMS de l’apparition de virus H1N1 résistants à l’oseltamivir (médicament antiviral connu sous le nom de Tamiflu).
Ces virus ont été découverts chez trois patients qui n’ont pas été gravement atteints et qui ont tous guéri. Les enquêtes n’ont pas retrouvé de virus résistants parmi les proches contacts de ces trois personnes. Bien que résistants à l’oseltamivir, les virus étaient toujours sensibles au zanamivir.
Un sito interessante ed utile, che riporta informazioni in inglese, francese, spagnolo (ed altre 3 lingue che non conosco: arabo, cinese e russo ...) ..., da oggi figurerà tra i siti che consiglio: http://www.who.int
