She developed flu-like symptoms about a week later. The Tamiflu-resistant strain wasn’t found in any other of the 20 novel flu cases at the home.Researchers suggest osteoporosis drugs may have antiviral benefitsResearchers from Hong Kong have found that two osteoporosis drugs, pamidronate and zoledronate, might have potential as treatment for influenza, including the novel H1N1 and the H5N1 viruses, Reuters reported today. They found that the two drugs triggered yd-T cells that killed flu-infected human cells. The next steps are to test the drugs in animals and conduct clinical trials in humans. The findings were released by the University of Hong Kong, Xinhua reported today.http://www.reuters.com/article/asiaCrisis/idUSHKG233114Aug 14 Reuters storyMassachusetts deputizes more healthcare workers to give vaccineThe Massachusetts Public Health Council on Aug 12 voted to enable such healthcare professionals as dentists, pharmacists, and paramedics to administer the novel flu vaccine in this fall’s vaccination campaigns, the Boston Globe reported yesterday.

first_img0Shares0000Fellaini appeared to have words with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho. Photo/DAILY MAILMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Feb 2 – Marouane Fellaini could be sidelined for two months after being forced off in Manchester United’s defeat at Tottenham.Fellaini lasted just seven minutes of Wednesday night’s 2-0 loss at Wembley, with reports suggesting that the Belgian international could be now set for a lengthy spell on the treatment table. United boss Jose Mourinho said: “He came off because he had something in his knee. Unlucky for him and unlucky for me. He came on with enthusiasm, but he has an injury in his ligament.”Subsequent reports have indicated that Fellaini has indeed suffered a serious injury, which rule him out for six to eight weeks.If the 30-year-old is out for two months, then it could severely limit Fellaini’s future contributions in a United shirt.Fellaini’s contract is due to expire at the end of the season and he is expected to leave Old Trafford on a Bosman deal in the summer.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
