Yellow fever: World Health Organization (WHO) authorizes emergency expansion of global vaccine stocks by using fractionated doses

WHO has published a statement endorsing the emergency use of fractionated doses of the vaccine to stretch global stockpile which is being rapidly depleted with requests from at-risk countries not only in Africa but also in Latin America.

“1. Preamble

This document represents the World Health Organization (WHO) Secretariat position on the use of yellow fever (YF) vaccine in the context of supply shortages in response to the current outbreak in Africa in 2016. The development of this paper was led by the WHO Initiative for Vaccine Research with contributions to specific sections from the WHO Departments of Pandemic and Epidemic Diseases, Essential Medicines, and Immunization Vaccines and Biologicals. The evidence and the proposed recommendations, reflected in this document, has been discussed with YF experts and reviewed by the WHO Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) on Immunization. SAGE and the YF experts provided input to this paper. The recommendations were vetted by SAGE, but they don’t represent a formal SAGE recommendation. The paper will be updated as additional data become available. A full review on the use of fractional dose YF vaccine will be conducted by SAGE in October 2016.

2. Introduction

Ongoing YF outbreaks are sharply increasing the demand for YF vaccine, exhausting the global stockpile and putting at risk the immunization of endemic populations. The campaigns currently planned have led to a shortage of the vaccine, a situation which could deteriorate further should expansion of outbreaks necessitate additional immunization campaigns on a large scale. An assessment of existing opportunities to increase the availability of vaccine in response to ongoing outbreaks is therefore urgently required. This paper reviews the evidence on dose-sparing strategies through fractional dosing of YF vaccine as an immediate and short-term option to meet the needs of large-scale campaigns, and proposes recommendations for fractional dose vaccination in case of imminent need in the context of outbreak response. The paper is intended to support efforts to introduce YF vaccine fractional dose use in situations where supply capacity is threatened or inadequate, e.g. following the spread of YF into densely populated areas. This is not proposed as a longer-term strategy or to replace established routine immunization practices.” ...

Joint Thematic Issue on OneHealth - Call for Papers

Monday, July 18, 2016.

Oxford University Presss Journals - Pathogens and Disease -  FEMS Federation of European Microbiological Society

 Joint Thematic Issue on OneHealth

Editor-in-Chief Prof. Patrik Bavoil

Call for Papers

Please see: http://femspd.oxfordjournals.org/page/call-for-papers

Guest Editors:

Pathogens and Disease: Stanley Maloy (UC San Diego, USA) and Edmundo Calva (Instituto de Biotecnología UNAM, Cuernavaca, Mexico)

FEMS Microbiology Ecology: Cindy Nakatsu (Purdue Univ, USA), Julian Marchesi (Cardiff University, UK), Liping Zhao (Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China)

The health of humans is inextricably linked to the health of other living creatures and to the health of the environment. This is perhaps best illustrated by infectious disease microorganisms, many of which 'evolve' in animals and/or the environment and at various times during evolution find a niche in humans. In recognition of the significance of the OneHealth concept, the two journals of the Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS) that publish on the health of humans and that of their environment, Pathogens and Disease and FEMS Microbiology Ecology, are teaming up to organize a joint thematic issue on the theme of OneHealth.

We hereby invite authors to submit their latest research for inclusion to a thematic issue entitled OneHealth for Life which will be published in Pathogens and Disease or FEMS Microbiology Ecology. We welcome all article types, including Research Articles, Mini Reviews, Short Communications, Perspectives, Commentaries, and Shortomics. Authors should specify 'OneHealth' in their cover letter to either journal. All submitted papers will undergo independent peer-review. Upon publication of these articles, a virtual joint thematic issue will bring together articles from both titles and will be promoted by FEMS and their publisher, Oxford University Press.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 30 November 2016

Read the joint virtual issue on OneHealth.

U.S. One Health Commission (OHC) Sponsors Important One Health Webinar –July 13, 2016 at 11am EDT with Laura H. Kahn, MD, MPH, MPP

"One Health can provide a safe, 'no judgment zone' for many needed conversations surrounding our most difficult global and environmental health challenges. Yesterday [July 6, 2016] the One Health Commission was pleased to present Dr. Kahn's data driven research in her webinar, 'One Health and the Politics of Antibiotic Resistance'. The first of a two-part series, that webinar saw over 200 online attendees from over 30 countries. Now that the word is out, next week's webinar on 'Antimicrobial Resistance and the Environment' will likely draw even more participants."

Antimicrobial Resistance in the Environment (Part 2 of 2)

07/13/2016 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM  EDT

Title: Antimicrobial Resistance in the Environment (Part 2 of 2)

Overview: 
This presentation will discuss findings of widespread antibiotic resistance in the environment. Massive amounts of human and animal waste applied to agricultural fields alter the global “resistome.” Wildlife never exposed to antibiotics harbor antibiotic resistant bacteria in their feces. The Human Microbiome project has found that microbial cells outnumber human cells by an estimated 10-fold, fundamentally changing our perceptions about health and disease. Taken together, the findings of antibiotic resistance in external and internal environments suggest that human antibiotic use has altered global microbial populations in ways that we do not fully understand. We are fast approaching a post antibiotic era. This presents challenges and opportunities and will require a One Health approach to succeed. 

Learning Objectives: 
1. Understand the 21st century challenges posed by the growing human population and its increasing demands for terrestrial and aquatic animal proteins. 
2. Develop familiarity with metagenomics and “The Global Resistome.” 
3. Understand how open defecation jeopardizes human, animal, and environmental health. 
4. Understand how application of manure to agricultural fields alters the global “resistome” and harms global health.

Title One Health and the Politics of Antibiotic Resistance (Part 1 of 2)

Overview: 
The rise of antibiotic resistant bacteria has created a crisis in medicine and veterinary medicine. The use of antibiotics as growth promoting agents in livestock has been a highly political issue. Europe approved avoparcin, a growth-promoting antibiotic, in the 1970’s. Its widespread use led to the rise of vancomycin resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE). In contrast, the US has requested that its livestock producers voluntarily stop using antibiotic growth promoting agents. Using a One Health approach by integrating the perspectives of medicine/public health and veterinary medicine/agriculture, this presentation briefly compares and contrasts the EU versus the US experience regarding antibiotic use, antibiotic resistance, and livestock production. 

Learning Objectives: 
1. Understand the history behind low dose antibiotic use in agriculture. 
2. Understand how the rise of vancomycin resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE) drove public policy in Europe. 
3. Understand the different policy approaches in Europe and the U.S. regarding avoparcin, a growth-promoting antibiotic used extensively in pork production, and how they impacted VRE epidemiology. 
4. Understand how genomics can play a crucial role in antimicrobial resistance surveillance.
