Thursday, June 7, 2001
By ANN LOVEJOY
SPECIAL TO THE POST-INTELLIGENCER

SPECIAL TO THE POST-INTELLIGENCER
 
Over the past few weeks, I've received about 400 e-mails a week from readers who want to know more about Blackberry Blocker and Moss Magic. Both are based on very strong vinegar concentrates.

BLUETONGUE OUTBREAK SLOWS
By LAURA ISENHART
For the Capital Press
 
NEWPORT, Ore.---
Oregon was a hot spot for bluetongue outbreaks as recently as 1998, but not a single case was identified in 2001, the Oregon Department of Agriculture reports.
The cyclical disease, which led the Oregon Legislature to fund a three-year study following an outbreak three years ago, recorded no confirmed cases the past year, ODA's Brad LeaMaster told Oregon Sheep Growers members at their December convention.

Bluetongue is spread from animal to animal through a complex relationship among the host animal, insect vectors and the disease agents.
There is no known cure for the disease, which turns animals' tongues blue from lack of oxygen.

It makes it difficult for them to breathe or swallow, sometimes resulting in death and often in economic loss.

The virus can also infect goats, deer, elk and domestic cattle, which show fewer of the symptoms.

The tiny culioides insects, commonly known as NO-SEE-UMS, are responsible for transferring the virus from one animal to another when they bite. (GREENERGY MOSQUITO TRAP IS USED TO TRAP THE NO-SEE-UMS)

With some 24 different serotypes, identification of exact culprit is often difficult. Since vaccines are serotype specific, the vaccine must match the serotype.

Five of the 24 serotypes have been identified in the United States, LeaMaster said, and vaccines developed for serotypes 10, 11 and 17. The 2000 out break was identified as a serotype 17.

"It looks like 11 and 17 are the main ones in Oregon," he said.

Earlier bluetongue outbreaks were centered in northeast area of Oregon, Central Oregon and southeast Oregon.

Since the vaccines are live, LeaMaster said regulatory agencies have been very careful about release of vaccines.

BLUETONGUE is endemic in some states, LeaMaster said. One study in Oregon showed a 30 percent positive rate for cattle and 48 percent rate in sheep sampled in infected regions of the state.

HIV EPIDEMIC BLAMED ON FLIES (Stable Flies)
HEATH Thursday, March 14, 2002
BBC
 
Blood-sucking flies may have been to blame for the HIV epidemic being unleashed on humans, scientists suggest. Many Aids researchers believe the HIV virus jumped species from Chimpanzees to humans at some point in the first half of the 20th century.

They think humans were first exposed when simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), the monkey version of HIV, got into open wounds of game hunters in west or central Africa.

However, German scientists think stable flies may be responsible for HIV invading humans, according to an article in New Scientist magazine.

Most blood-sucking insects pose no risk of passing on HIV, including mosquitoes, which inject saliva through one tube and suck up blood through another.

However, stable flies, which bite humans, could be an exception and are known to transmit equine leukemia virus between horses. When feeding, they scrape skin to make a wound, suck up blood and regurgitate some on the skin next time they feed. Any viruses in the regurgitated blood can invade the body through the wounds made by the flies.

Unlike other blood-sucking insects that regurgitate blood, the stable fly does not digest the blood it regurgitates.

Gerhard Brandner of the University of Freiburg, said: "The anterior part of the mid-gut where the regurgitate is kept is just for storage and is free of digestive enzymes. That's our key result, and is a precondition for transmission of HIV."

Distractions

If the flies sucked up virus-tainted blood from the chimps, they could transmit it when they feed on humans, they believe. They speculate that sporadic cases of HIV transmission via stable flies may have happened for years but gone unrecognized.

If these rare infections still happen at all, they now pale into insignificance alongside the explosive spread of HIV through unprotected sex. It is a point reinforced by Professor David Mabey at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. He said: "It's an interesting theory and not more." The trouble with all these stories is that they distract attention from the main public health message, which is 90% if infection are transmitted by sex or from mothers to infants. So the message is to practice safe sex and not to worry about being bitten by flies."

Beatrice Hahn at the University of Alabama in the USA, who first reported finding HIV infections in chimps in 1999 does not think the German research should be taken seriously until further research backs it up. She said: "There's no shortage of hypotheses of how SIVcpz made the jump to humans and this is just another one. The task at hand is to find out for sure what happened and back it up by hard evidence."
