Slide1:  Where Health Care Meets Policy with Dr. Mike Magee Slide2:  The Threat of Bird Flu • 3 types of the influenza virus: A, B and C reflect differences in the M protein on the envelope that contains the virus • ‘A’ influenza viruses cause human and bird flu outbreaks – contain 8-segment RNA strand – segments break apart during replication to mix and reassort – potential for constant evolution is built in – sub-typed based on activity in envelope’s glycoproteins: 1] hemagglutinin activity (H): 16 known varieties 2] neuraminidase activity (N): 9 known varieties • Shorthand names have an “H” and “N” number (H1N1):  • 3 types of the influenza virus: A, B and C reflect differences in the M protein on the envelope that contains the virus • ‘A’ influenza viruses cause human and bird flu outbreaks – contain 8-segment RNA strand – segments break apart during replication to mix and reassort – potential for constant evolution is built in – sub-typed based on activity in envelope’s glycoproteins: 1] hemagglutinin activity (H): 16 known varieties 2] neuraminidase activity (N): 9 known varieties • Shorthand names have an “H” and “N” number (H1N1) Understanding Bird Flu and the Influenza Virus Sources: Infectious Diseases Society of America Web site.

Slide5:  The Influenza A Virus Appears Most In Wild Bird Populations • Spreads rapidly through exchange of mucus or feces, without creating sickness or death in these species • Once transferred to domestic birds (chickens, ducks and turkeys), spreads explosively — is frequently lethal • Virus mutates rapidly in large groups of closely contained birds – Has ability to jump to other species, such as pigs Secondary carriers become mixing pots for more varieties, increasing chances that other mammals, including humans, will become vulnerable.

Global task force for influenza. Nature. 2005;435:419-420. Slide6:  The H5N1 Bird Flu Has Infected Humans and Continues to Evolve • First identified in South African wild terns in 1961 • Spread naturally among global bird populations over 4 decades • Appeared in poultry populations in 2003 – outbreak in 8 countries in Asia: Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, South Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam – loss of more than 100 million domestic birds • Outbreak appeared under control until June of 2004 when it reappeared in 4 of the same countries and Malaysia Sources: Infectious Diseases Society of America Web site.

Slide7:  Bird Flu in Humans • H5N1 first infected a human population in Hong Kong in 1997 – 18 documented cases, 6 deaths – reappeared in 2 cases, causing 1 death in 2003 – soon broke out in Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia • As of June 2005: 100 documented human cases – 54 percent mortality rate – transmission is result of direct contact with infected poultry • What constitutes a pandemic? 1] highly virulent organism 2] lack of human immunity to the organism 3] ability to easily transmit from human to human Sources: Infectious Diseases Society of America Web site.

Hien TT. De Jong M, Farrar J. Avian influenza – a challenge to global health care structures. NEJM. 2004;351:2363-2365. H5N1 has the first two, but not the third (at least not yet) Slide8:  Concerns Are High: Studies Demonstrate Continued Evolution • Host range of H5N1 is expanding – includes pigs, horses, cats, tigers, leopards, whales and seals • Expansion of the domestic bird population in Asia – China: domestic chicken population increase: 8 million to 13 billion • More domestic pigs, which are catalytic mixers of genetic brews • Human-to-human transmission has occurred in a documented case of child to mother to aunt in Thailand Spread stopped there, suggesting virus does not yet have capability to readily jump from one human to the next.

Slide9:  Our Capacity to Diagnose and Manage an H5N1 Pandemic is Less than Adequate Needs • Excellent surveillance: clinical, scientific and technologic capacity • Knowledge sharing • The will to act (quickly) at first sign of human-to-human transmission Concerns • H5N1 is already resistant to two of four common anti-viral drugs • Our supply of the two non-resistant drugs is woefully inadequate Sources: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Web site. Information about Avian Influenza (Bird Flue) and Avian Influenza A (H5N1) Virus. World Health Organization. Report by the Secretariat. Avian influenza and human health. April 8, 2004. Slide10:  The Good News Aug. 7: Health officials announced success in an initial test of a human vaccine Realities • Existence of vaccine is not enough to prevent a worldwide pandemic • More testing is required before vaccine can be offered to public • Vaccine made in chicken eggs: successful mass production dependent on available eggs • Obstacles include organizational system for distribution Sources: Altman LK. Avian Flu Vaccine Called Effective in Human Testing. The New York Times. Aug. 7, 2005. Altman LK, Bradsher K. A Successful Vaccine Alone Is Not Enough to Prevent Avian Flu Epidemic. The New York Times. Aug. 8, 2005. Slide11:  Managing the Real Risk of Bird Flu Requirements • Global cooperation • Expanded surveillance • Expanded capacity • H5N1 tracking worldwide • Agree on a research plan • Share knowledge • Be ready to intervene Poultry • Surveillance of all subtypes • Modifying production and distribution, and strict enforcement Humans • Broad surveillance / detection • Cluster investigation • Contact tracking • Targeted use of anti-virals • Continued vaccine R&D • Travel restrictions when appropriate Human transmission of bird flu is predictable and therefore manageable. Failure to take action could be a mistake of historic proportions. Slide12:  Release Date: 8/24/2005 www.healthpolitics.com with Dr. Mike Magee The Threat of Bird Flu
