Possible botulism reported after cosmetic injections

November 18, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: ercinbyyl.

first_img The maker of Botox, Allergan Inc. of Irvine, Calif., said Nov 29 that authorities had not been able to confirm that Botox had been administered to the four patients. The company said it was cooperating with federal and state health officials to investigate the cases. Dec 1, 2004 (CIDRAP News) – Four people in Florida and New Jersey who might have been injected with the anti-wrinkle medication Botox are seriously ill with possible botulism, according to news services. Allergan also said only two vials of Botox were shipped to Advanced Integrated Medical Center this year and only one was shipped in the past 6 months. The company reported it had reviewed all manufacturing and quality-assurance processes related to the vials and found no problems. Also, the firm said it had received no reports of adverse events related to the manufacturing lots from which the vials came. The two patients in New Jersey were still connected to ventilators but were conscious and communicating through gestures, the newspaper, citing relatives of the patients, reported today. The stories identified the patients as Bach McComb and Alma “AJ” Hall, both employees at Advanced Integrated Medical Systems. They were hospitalized at Bayonne (N.J.) Medical Center. The newspaper described McComb as a physician whose license was suspended by Florida health officials in 2003 after he was charged with trafficking in addictive pain medications. See also: The South Florida Sun-Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale said all four patients were on mechanical ventilators. Today the newspaper reported that the two patients in Florida, whom it identified as Eric S. Kaplan and his wife, Bonnie, were in serious but stable condition. Authorities have not confirmed that any of the patients had botulism. A Nov 30 report in the Sun-Sentinel said doctors at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center were treating the two cases there as botulism. The Florida Department of Health (FDH) said it was expecting laboratory tests to clarify the diagnoses later this week, according to the story. Calls to the FDH for more information were not returned in time for this story. The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services issued a short statement Nov 29 saying that botulinum toxin poisoning had not been confirmed in the two patients. The statement said Florida health officials were taking the lead in investigating the cases and that New Jersey was cooperating with Florida and the CDC.center_img The Associated Press (AP) reported that a man and woman in their 50s were in critical condition at Palm Beach Gardens (Florida) Medical Center on Nov 28. Dr. Charles Schallop, a neurologist who treated the couple, said they had gone to a Fort Lauderdale clinic called Advanced Integrated Medical Center Nov 24 for Botox injections, according to the AP report. Nov 30 Allergan news releasehttp://agn.client.shareholder.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=149490 Two other people were being treated at a hospital in New Jersey for possible botulism, the AP report said. Schallop said the Florida couple reported that the New Jersey patients were at the Florida clinic the same day they were there. Schallop said he suspected all four patients might have fallen ill because of contaminated doses of Botox or some other drug. Botox contains minute amounts of botulinum toxin, which causes muscle paralysis and is the most lethal known substance. The toxin, derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, is one of the six biological agents considered most likely to be used by terrorists. Botulism is usually associated with contaminated food, particularly improperly home-canned food. Botox is used to smooth facial wrinkles and to treat certain muscle disorders. The Sun-Sentinel reported that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was investigating exactly what the four patients were injected with and who administered the injections. The newspaper quoted investigators as saying they were considering the possibility that patients were injected with foreign-made imitations of Botox and Myoblock, another anti-wrinkle drug that contains botulinum toxin. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was helping with the FDH investigation by conducting lab tests, CDC spokeswoman Christine Pearson told CIDRAP News yesterday.

HHS sets up board to combat misuse of biotech research

November 18, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: adzvswdvm.

first_img To recommend a code of conduct for scientists and laboratory workers that can be adopted by federal agencies, professional organizations, and institutions Mar 4, 2004, CIDRAP News story “New board to advise on ‘dual use’ research, announces HHS” Jul 1, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – The members of a new government board that will guide efforts to keep terrorists from exploiting the fruits of federally funded biotechnology research were announced this week by Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt. “The implications for the tremendous good that can be accomplished in this line of research are mind-boggling,” he said. “At the same time, the potential misapplication of this kind of research is frightening. So we have to be very careful not to throw the baby out with the bath water. We need this type of research. Therefore we must find every way we possibly can to prevent someone from using it for terrorism purposes.” Today’s session included a discussion on the chemical synthesis of bacteria and viruses, with J. Craig Venter, PhD, and other leaders in the field. Venter, founder of J. Craig Venter Institute, talked about the widespread availability of technology for synthesizing microbial DNA. “There are well over 50,000 DNA synthesizers in the world,” he commented at one point, adding that he had seen several for sale on eBay for about $5,000. To develop criteria for identifying “dual use” research—legitimate research whose results could be misused for biological warfare or bioterrorism The board will also be asked to advise the government on guidelines for publishing information about potentially sensitive research, biosecurity education programs for scientists and lab workers, local review and approval processes for dual-use research, and other issues. Venter and other speakers said that unscrupulous researchers could synthesize pathogenic bacteria or viruses and that detecting and stopping such efforts would be very difficult. He advocated focusing efforts on developing medical defenses against such pathogens. HHS officials first announced plans to establish the NSABB in March 2004. The estimated annual cost of operating the board is about $976,000, according to information on the Web site. Leavitt appointed Dennis L. Kasper, MD, of Harvard Medical School to chair the board. Kasper is director of the Channing Laboratory in the department of medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. As examples of the potential benefits of “synthetic biology,” Osterholm said Venter described a project to develop bacteria that could remove carbon dioxide from the air and thus combat global warming. Venter is also working on bacteria that would produce pure hydrogen, which “could dramatically change our status as a petroleum-based economy,” Osterholm added. Jun 29 HHS news release with list of NSABB membershttp://archive.hhs.gov/news/press/2005pres/20050629.html In naming 24 people to the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB), Leavitt said in a news release, “We all realize some research that results in new medical treatments, agricultural advances, and biodefense countermeasures could end up in the hands of terrorists who could twist it for their own purposes. The NSABB will provide a forum to help educate scientists on biosecurity and a means for the federal government to receive advice on how to advance scientific knowledge without compromising security.”center_img Announcement of the members was the prelude to the board’s first meeting, held yesterday and today in Bethesda, Md. The meeting was open to the public and was also accessible over the Internet as a live webcast. Osterholm commented after the meeting that the presentations on chemical synthesis of new microbes showed that the field has huge potential for both good and ill. The National Research Council called for creation of a board like the NSABB in its 2003 report, titled “Biotechnology Research in an Age of Terrorism: Confronting the Dual Use Dilemma.” As established, the board is somewhat different from what that report recommended, but it is intended to achieve the same goals, according to information on the board’s Web site. NSABB sitehttp://www.biosecurityboard.gov/ “If we’re not concentrating almost 100% of our efforts on providing defensive countermeasures, we’re missing the big picture here,” Venter said. “Any viral agent can be produced. We should just assume that’s possible and make sure that we have good vaccines and good vaccine development procedures to work against them.” The board is composed mostly of academic researchers but includes several private consultants, one attorney, and the head of the vaccine department at a large pharmaceutical company, Merck & Co. Among the members is Michael T. Osterholm, PhD, MPH, director of the University of Minnesota Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP), publisher of this Web site. See also: The board’s main tasks, according to information on the NSABB Web site, are: The board will not have authority to approve or reject specific experiments. But it will, on request, provide guidance to local “institutional biosafety committees” on specific experiments or classes of research that raise complex questions.

The Sea Star Festival generated more than 60 million kuna in tourist spending

November 18, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: tdruvkbqd.

first_imgThe results of the research conducted by the regional research center “TIM” from Novi Sad, confirmed that the premiere edition of the Sea Star Festival in Umag this year has contributed to the Croatian tourism industry more than 60 million kuna.The new festival organized by Exit from the first announcement to the final opening, due to great interest has tripled the initial capacity and doubled the number of festival zones in the Umag resort Stella Maris, while according to official data of the Tourist Board of Umag, all accommodation facilities in the city and surrounding places , were filled. Thus, according to the data of the Umag Tourist Board, in relation to the pre-festival weekend in Umag and its surroundings, the number of visits increased by as much as 220%!The festival was visited by more than 25 fans from 28 to 50.000 May, and as many as 93% of them came from outside Umag, and the host city in hospitality is followed by the Istrian County, which was visited by as many as 85% of guests from abroad! The survey also found that each of these visitors spent an average of 292 euros during the festival, according to organizers, which was conducted on a representative sample of visitors with purchased tickets.The research of visitors also shows that they stayed in Umag for an average of three days, and the list of about 40 countries from which guests came to the festival includes Great Britain, the Netherlands, France and most countries on the European continent. from nearby Slovenia and Italy. Visitors from Western Europe spent a bit more, with 310 euros in the end, or 103 euros per day, and it is interesting that visitors from the countries of the region with an average of 305 euros, or slightly more than 100 euros, did not lag behind. Daily.”After the exceptional start of the Sea Star Festival, which exceeded all expectations, a historic chance was created for Sea Star to grow into one of the most important music festivals in the Mediterranean and one of the most important brands in Umag, Istria and the entire region. According to the experience from Exit, with this initial energy, Sea Star will shine on the European map of the festival for a long time”, Said the director and founder of EXIT festival Dusan Kovacevic and adds that visitors, numerous performers, both international and regional who traveled by road in Istria, and more than 300 journalists from around the world in the superlatives themselves spoke about the beauties, gastronomic offer and acceptance by the host.Also, the whole story needs to include the media value and coverage of the festival, which is certainly not negligible when we talk about branding and promotion of a tourist destination. As Kovačić points out, this year the festival received numerous awards from the world media, so some of the most influential British media aimed at the younger population, such as DJ Mag, Billboard, IQ, Mixmag, gave their recommendations for Sea Star as well as for a holiday in Umag. , Pulse Radio, Festpop and many others. Unfortunately, the real media value, ie the reach of the Sea Satar Festival, has not been done, but certainly this information, which is extremely important, should be added to the total tourist consumption.Research also shows that the highly educated make up as much as two thirds, and the average age of the Sea Star festival audience is 26,2 years, which puts them in a higher pay group. Visitors were mostly accommodated in apartments, private accommodation and hotels. The research also showed that the vast majority, over 80%, visited Umag exclusively because of the Sea Star festival, while over 95% of respondents said that their opinion of Umag improved or remained equally positive after the festival! Also, as many as 95.3% of respondents estimated that the Stella Maris complex is an excellent or good location for holding festivals.Investing in events is not a cost, but an investment If we want to have a good attendance and a good story, we must invest, ie invest money in quality content. Without content there is no story, no visitors and ultimately no interest. The goal is to offer quality products and services that visitors are willing to pay and consume, and of course the story of the event as the main motive for coming. The most important thing is to complete the whole story, both to the visitors and to the partners who are inside the festival through catering and other facilities. The event must be a win-win-win for everyone, because if only one element is missing, everything falls into the water.But the most important message is that investing in events is not a cost, but an investment, of course if we look at the long term and work on developing a large event that becomes a motive for coming. With the arrival of as many visitors as possible, such as the good example of the Sea Star Festival, a tourist overnight stay is generated as well as the most important tourist spending. If there is no spending, there is no interest, and interest is the earnings of all partners. Everything pulls one after another, so the organization of events is a serious job that consists of a lot of elements that complement each other.If you want to develop events, then you have to invest money, because one does not go without the other. Without investing in production, the whole experience and quality development, the money invested is a cost and thrown to the wind because we did not complete the whole story, ie get a sufficient number of visitors and, accordingly, not tourist spending. An excellent example is Advent in Zagreb, which achieved 120.000 arrivals and 230.000 overnight stays, and according to the conducted research, generated an estimated consumption of 390 to 438 million kuna.And don’t forget, content is king and the motive for coming.Related news:FIND OUT HOW MUCH ADVENT GENERATED TOURIST SPENDING IN ZAGREBSMALL EVENTS AS THE ESSENCE OF OUR TOURISMTHE ESSENCE OF TOURISM IN ISTRIA – SO SIMPLE AND SO INGENIOUS 100 MILES OF ISTRIA AS A GREAT TOURIST STORY THAT WILL GENERATE 5.000 NIGHTSlast_img read more
