H1N1 Influenza "Swine Flu" Peptide Vaccine Now Available For Testing Worldwide
Date:5/1/2009

Replikins, Ltd. has announced that it has produced a synthetic H1N1 swine flu vaccine, Replikins PanFlu™, which is ready for testing worldwide. The company has developed the vaccine based on the same Replikins peptide technology which provided the surprise advance warning one year ago that the current H1N1 outbreak/pandemic was on its way.

London, UK (PRWEB) May 1, 2009 -- Replikins, Ltd. has announced that it has produced a synthetic H1N1 swine flu vaccine, Replikins PanFlu™, which is ready for testing worldwide.

The company has developed the vaccine based on the same Replikins peptide technology which provided the surprise advance warning one year ago that the current H1N1 outbreak/pandemic was on its way.

In April 2008, Replikins, Ltd announced the likelihood of H1N1 outbreaks based on the company's patented Replikin Count™ genomics technology, which examines specific regions in virus genes that have been linked with past epidemics. The company's chairman, Dr. Samuel Bogoch, found that the regions have been conserved for decades. In H1N1 last year the company detected the highest concentrations of these specific regions ever seen, except for those from the 1918 flu pandemic which killed tens of millions of people. To date, no other method has been able to predict whether and what strain of a given organism will threaten a human or animal population.

The company is producing the new product after achieving test results against two previous viral outbreaks: the lethal Taura virus with shrimp populations and the avian flu (H5N1) with chicken populations. The company's closely related Replikins vaccine against avian flu, produced in a 7 day period, was recently tested at the University of Georgia and shown to block H5N1 virus entry, replication, and excretion in chickens (paper submitted for publication).
