Australia approves CSL’s H5N1 vaccine

first_imgJun 17, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – Australian authorities have approved an H5N1 avian influenza vaccine made by the Australian-based pharmaceutical company CSL Limited, giving the country a home-grown defensive tool if the virus evolves into a pandemic strain.Meanwhile, Swiss-based Novartis has withdrawn its application for a European license for its own H5N1 vaccine, saying it couldn’t meet a deadline to supply additional clinical data requested by regulators, the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) announced yesterday.CSL announced today the approval of its vaccine, Panvax, by Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration. The Australian government had provided more than $7 million to help develop the vaccine, according to a report from the Courier Mail, a Brisbane newspaper.Panvax can be used only when the Australian government officially declares that a flu pandemic is under way, CSL said in a news release.”In the event of a pandemic, CSL will rapidly gear up to manufacturing levels that will ensure all Australians have access to safe, effective coverage against avian flu,” said Mary Sontrop, general manager of CSL Biotherapies, in the news release.The release quoted Australian Health Minister Nicola Roxon as saying, “This places Australia in an excellent position in terms of its preparedness to manage an avian flu pandemic should one arise and should reassure all Australians.”Other H5N1 vaccines that have been licensed so far include a GlaxoSmithKline product that was approved by the European Union in May and a Sanofi Pasteur vaccine that was endorsed by the US Food and Drug Administration in April 2007. The US government is stockpiling Sanofi’s vaccine.CSL said the immunogenicity and safety of Panvax have been tested in three clinical trials, involving adults aged 18 to 64 and adults older than 64. The vaccine, given in two doses, was found to be safe and well tolerated.The CSL statement listed no details about the composition of the vaccine. But a chart of clinical trials on the Web site of the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations says it is a split-virus vaccine that is produced in eggs and is used with an adjuvant. Experts say that with egg-based production, it will take 4 to 6 months after the identification of a pandemic flu strain to develop and launch mass production of a precisely matched vaccine.Roxon said Australia already has 1.2 million doses of a foreign-made vaccine on hand, according to the Courier Mail report.Novartis withdrawalThe EMEA said Novartis withdrew its application for licensing of Aflunov because it could not meet a deadline for supplying more clinical data requested by the agency’s Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP).”The CHMP had requested additional data because a good clinical practice (GCP) inspection showed that the main study had not been conducted in compliance with GCP, so that its results could not be considered reliable for use in the evaluation of the vaccine,” the EMEA statement said.Novartis had submitted its application in November 2006. The EMEA said withdrawal of the application does not preclude a reapplication later.See also: Jun 17 CSL news releasehttp://www.csl.com.au/s1/cs/auhq/1196562650160/news/1211307236036/prdetail.htmlast_img read more

Sead Kolasinac comments after Mesut Ozil gets Criticism

first_imgSead Kolasinac insists Mesut Ozil has the backing of everyone at Arsenal and that he and his team-mates ignore any negativity aimed at the German forward.Ozil’s performances are often in the spotlight, given he is the highest-paid player at the Emirates Stadium.Gunners head coach Unai Emery insisted last week that he could not guarantee Ozil a starting berth in his side – only to then name the former Real Madrid man as captain for Saturday’s 3-1 Premier League win over Burnley.Ozil’s future at Arsenal remains unclear as Emery refused to rule out a January exit for the 30-year-old, who provided a couple of moments of class to help down the Clarets.While his displays may be over-analysed and his critics vocal, Kolasinac revealed no-one within the club takes any notice of Ozil’s detractors.“That’s the case when you’re a big star, like Mesut is,” the Bosnia-Herzegovina international said when asked if Ozil gets unfair criticism.“Of course there are always negative headlines but, as a team, we don’t pay attention to them and Mesut doesn’t either.“That’s what’s most important. We’re all behind Mesut – all the staff, all the players.“If negative things are written, then that’s just what happens. In life, not everything is positive – sometimes there are negatives written about you too, and he’s had that. But with his performance (against Burnley) he’s quietened a few critics.”Kolasinac was named man of the match in the win having played a part in both of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s opening two goals.The 25-year-old got on the end of a perfect Ozil pass to cross for Aubameyang’s opener and admitted he would not have even made a lung-bursting run into the box if any other player had been inpossession at the time.“It was unbelievable,” he said of Ozil’s pass.“We all know Mesut’s qualities and I only actually made that run because I saw that he had the ball. Not many players would have been able to play that pass.“He can, and when I saw him get on the ball, I knew he was going to find me. It was a brilliant pass from him.”Ozil may have to fight for a place in Emery’s team but he has led Arsenal out as captain four times this season.While Kolasinac admits Ozil is not the sort of skipper to dole out rollickings, the former Schalke man believes he commands respect in a different way.“Mesut’s not the sort of player who will scream at you in public just to show the people on the outside that he tries to push us on,” he added.“He’ll speak in the dressing room, he’ll go to every player individually. With his quality, he brings a lot to this team. He’s very important for us as a captain and as a player”, Breaking News writes.last_img read more

Ealier, we saw the Australian legend Shane Warne pledging to sell his ‘Baggy Green’ test cap to donate as relief fund. Now, the iconic spinner has decided to come out of retirement to play for a fundraising charity game, and his former Aussie teammates have decided to join him for the noble cause.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Cricket Australia/AFPAlong with Shane Warne, the other eminent present and former players of Australian cricket who will break their decamp are- Ricky Ponting, Brett Lee, Adam Gilchrist, Justin Langer, Shane Watson, Michael Clarke and Alex Blackwell.Around 800 million to one billion of animals have been killed in the wildfire that started back in July 2019, and around 27 people have died, including the firefighters.Advertisement Before the final match of the KFC Big Bash League, which is scheduled on 8th February, the star studded match named the ‘Bushfire Cricket Bash’ will be played on the same day, with Warne and Ponting captaining the two teams.Kevin Roberts, the CEO of Cricket Australia, spoke to cricket.com.au on the fundraising match “The Bushfire Cricket Bash will be Cricket Australia’s major fundraising initiative to support Australians impacted by the recent unprecedented bushfire emergency.”Advertisement 8th February will prove to be a busy day for CA, as along with the ‘Bushfire Cricket Bash’ match and Big Bash League final, the 5th T20 match of the 2020 Australia women’s Tri-Nation Series will also be held on the same day. However, the funds from all three matches will be used as relief funds for the bushfire.Roberts continued: “People the world over have seen the overwhelming images of hundreds of thousands of hectares burnt, precious lives lost, hundreds of properties destroyed and the devastating loss of wildlife as a result of the fires.”“These images have reinforced the need to get behind organisations like the Australian Red Cross which is responding to the immediate requirements of people who have lost loved ones, their homes, and their livelihoods” he added.Also read-Classy Shane Warne raises $1 Million for Australian bushfire crisis by auctioning his test capYuvraj Singh issues plea for Australian bushfire crisis; over 480 million animals affected Advertisementlast_img read more

November . . . a great time to be fishing on Kootenay Lake

first_imgAfter a couple hours of down time, the bite turned on once again in the afternoon.  This time it was Stacey’s turn and she managed to land a beautiful 10 pound Bull Trout.  After releasing this fish, she quietly started to brag that this was the biggest fish of the day.  Don’t speak too soon. About half hour later, Isabella was fighting a nice Rainbow.  A good battle and finally into the net, she landed a nice chrome 14 pounds Bow.  Now she started to gloat.  But I mentioned what happened last time, so don’t be too cocky. And sure enough, 15 minutes later the line starts screaming off. Now Stacey is into a giant Rainbow.  This turned out to be the battle of the day. The fish ran out a couple hundred feet of line and jumped about six times.  Stacey gradually gained back the line and then it ran out 150 feet again.  The girls were amazed.  After about a 15-minute battle, she finally got it too the boat.  A spectacular 18 pound Rainbow.”Welcome to Kootenay Lake” I said. After a couple good photo’s, we released this amazing fish.  What a great day, and a day for these girls to remember.  Thank you for choosing Kootenay Lake.  I’m glad we could help make your first time fishing in Canada, a memorable one. Hope to see you again someday. That was only one story from October.  As we creep into November, we are already making new stories with even more fish, and bigger too.  The past week has been a good week of fishing.  Landing six – 12 fish most days up to 21 pounds.  It’s only going to get better and better. Stay tuned…….What are they biting on??? Well, it’s been a mixed bag.  Usually by now, the fish are all on the surface.  However, right now it seems that they are scattered throughout the water column. We have been catching a lot fish down deep still. 75ft – 140ft seems to be pretty consistent. My favorite lures have been the good old flasher/hoochie or some lyman plugs down deep. There has also been some good feeding frenzies on the surface.  But they only seem to last a short period.  We have been lucky enough to know when they’re happening, and are prepared with the right gear.    Bucktail flies have been producing big fish when the bite is on.  My favorites have been the common colors lately. Magic numbers, 210, 215, 228. Both the regular flies and the skull patterns have been working. The water temperature is perfect, so the fishing should just get better and better.Derby, Derby, Derby The last big derby of the fall is upon us.  This coming weekend — November 9-11 — is the annual Kaslo Rainbow Derby. Should be some great prizes and great fish caught. Good Luck to everyone !!  Tight Lines………….. Your Guide, Kerry Reed Reel Adventures Charters Nelson B.C 250-505-4963 www.reeladventuresfishing.com Kerry Reed is the owner/operator of Reel Adventures Charters and writes a monthly fishing report for The Nelson Daily.Kootenay LakeIt’s happening . . . my favourite time of the year.The water temperature has finally dropped and the fish are becoming aggressive again. October was the beginning of the transition.  And we saw some great fish for that month.  Rainbow Trout up to 22 pounds and Dolly Varden (Bull Trout) up to 16 pounds were being caught. I had one particular group out with me in October who were truly spoiled by Kootenay Lake.  Isabella and Stacey from Australia joined me for a day to experience Kootenay Lake fishing. It was their first time in Canada and one thing on their list was to try fishing.  And they chose to go out with me.Now the pressure was on.  First time fishing in Canada.  I was hoping the fish were going to cooperate. Our day started out fairly good.  About an hour in, we hooked into a nice five pound Dolly.  Good start.  The girls were happy already that they had a picture to take back to Australia.  Another hour goes by and another Dolly.  Now they have each caught a fish in Canada.  Can it get any better?  Apparently yes. . .. We landed a couple more fish before noon and were having a great time.  The girls were in awe of the beautiful scenery and were snapping hundreds of photo’s to take home.last_img read more

Jetstar losing loyalty battle  as on-time reliability slumps

first_imgAustralia’s biggest low-cost carrier Jetstar has lost its long-held mantle as the most reliable budget carrier to its smaller rival, Tigerair. As the Qantas subsidiary used to do to Tigerair regularly, Jetstar has been trounced in the latest month’s on-time performance figures for June 2016.And it’s no one-off result. Jetstar now lags the field by a considerable margin in who is likely to get you to your destination on time, even though Australia, with its relatively benign year-round weather, leads the world for airline punctuality.In June, just 73.4 per cent of Jetstar’s flights arrived on time and even fewer, 70.9 per cent, departed on time, which is defined as less than 15 minutes after the scheduled time.It’s the airline’s worst performance since December 2015, when only 68 per cent of Jetstar’s flights arrived on-time. Those are the sort of numbers that Tigerair use to rack up before it was taken over by the Virgin Australia group in October 2014.However, since the takeover, Tigerair – grounded in 2011 for safety breaches – is not only making money for the first time under new boss Rob Sharp, but is defying gravity for a budget carrier by contending with and sometimes leading the full-service carriers in punctuality.In June, 80 per cent of Tigerair flights arrived on time – nearly seven percentage points clear of Jetstar, its major rival for cheap holiday flying and no-frills interstate air travel.Overall in June, Virgin was Australia’s most reliable airline, shading Qantas 85.4 per cent to 84.8 per cent for on-time arrivals.“We don’t shy away from the fact our punctuality hasn’t been up to scratch in recent months,” a Jetstar spokesman says.“While we have had some poor months, for the first five months of the year our on-time arrivals were running at around 80 per cent.“We know it’s critically important to our customers and we’re working hard behind the scenes to improve our performance.”One of the reasons Tigerair is still so small in Australia is that it developed a poor reputation for reliability in the years before the Virgin takeover, when it was controlled by Singaporean interests.Tigerair Singapore is now part of the Singapore Airlines (SIA) group and has a new lease on life as the main feeder carrier for SIA low-cost subsidiary Scoot, which flies a fleet of Boeing 787 widebody jets, mostly around Asia and soon to Europe.Tigerair Australia has a fleet of just 17 narrowbody jets (14 A320s and three 737s used to fly longer routes to Bali from Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth), compared with Jetstar’s fleet of around 70 planes, including 11 787s.The Virgin group announced earlier this month that Tigerair would transition to an all-737 fleet as part of strategy of simplifying its fleet. Virgin has around 80 737s in Australia and no A320s apart from those operated by Tigerair.last_img read more
