HHS orders 18 million doses of anthrax vaccine

first_img Besides the shelf-life bonus, the contract also provides for bonuses if the company makes progress toward winning regulatory approval for using the vaccine to help protect people after possible exposure to anthrax (postexposure prophylaxis, or PEP). The vaccine is currently approved only for preexposure use. Sep 26 Emergent BioSolutions news releasehttp://investors.emergentbiosolutions.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=202582&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=1055689 The contract also includes $2.2 million to cover shipping costs for delivering doses to the national stockpile, the company said. HHS has a goal of acquiring a next-generation anthrax vaccine that would require fewer doses and cause fewer side effects. In 2004 the agency awarded an $877 million contract to VaxGen Inc., based in Brisbane, Calif., for 75 million doses of a vaccine based on a recombinant form of an anthrax protein called protective antigen. But last December HHS canceled the contract after problems with the vaccine’s stability caused VaxGen to miss a deadline for starting a phase 2 clinical trial. Under the contract, HHS also promises to pay Emergent up to $11.5 million for achieving certain steps toward winning a PEP indication for the vaccine, the company said. Officials said they expect to receive $8.8 million of that by the end of this year. Sep 26, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – The federal government has awarded a $400 million contract to Emergent BioSolutions for another 18.75 million doses of anthrax vaccine, with a bonus to be paid if the company wins approval for extending the vaccine’s shelf life. Funds for the anthrax vaccine come from Project BioShield, a $5.6 billion program that Congress established in 2004 to promote development of medical countermeasures for chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear weapons by guaranteeing that the government would buy promising products. Sep 26 HHS news releasehttp://www.hhs.gov/news/press/2007pres/09/20070926a.html “HHS expects to issue a new rPA anthrax Vaccine Request for Proposals within the next month or so,” Wolfson added. HHS officials said in a statement today, “Today’s acquisition, in addition to the current stockpile of anthrax vaccine, will allow HHS to maintain a stockpile of at least 10 million doses of anthrax vaccine through 2011. In addition, HHS has two current contracts for the acquisition of anthrax antitoxins, to treat individuals with advanced anthrax disease.” See also: center_img Emergent BioSolutions, based in Gaithersburg, Md., previously sold a total of 10 million doses of AVA to HHS under contracts awarded in May 2005 and May 2006, according to a company news release. The 3-year contract for BioThrax vaccine, also known as Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed (AVA), is worth up to $448 million, according to the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The vaccine will go into the Strategic National Stockpile of drugs and medical supplies for civilian use. HHS still aims to acquire 75 million doses of a new anthrax vaccine, or enough to immunize 25 million people, Wolfson told CIDRAP News by e-mail. He said the agency published a request for information from industry on a recombinant protective antigen (rPA) vaccine in May. The vaccine has an official 3-year shelf life, but the company applied to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) last year to extend the shelf life to 4 years, the company said. If the FDA approves the application before the new contract expires in September 2010, the company will receive about $34 million to reflect an increase in the vaccine price. The company won’t get any of the money if the FDA doesn’t approve the change before the contract expires. The stockpile contains enough antibiotics to treat 40 million people for anthrax, according to Marc Wolfson, a spokesman for the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response. AVA, developed in the 1950s, is the only anthrax vaccine licensed in the United States. It requires six doses, with an annual booster recommended thereafter. More than 1.6 US military personnel have received the vaccine since 1998, but some have protested or refused the vaccine because of concern about side effects. In announcing the purchase, Rear Adm. Craig Vanderwagen, MD, HHS assistant secretary for preparedness and response, said, “Together with the already substantial supply of antibiotics, our nation’s first line of defense against an anthrax attack, this additional AVA anthrax vaccine will further broaden the stockpile’s medical countermeasures.” But major biotechnology companies showed little interest in the program. As a result, last December Congress passed a bill designed to strengthen the program. The bill established the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority within HHS, which can pay contractors when they achieve development milestones, instead of requiring them deliver finished products before they can get paid.

Cuba rejects US claims over health of imprisoned American citizen

first_img Tweet HealthLifestyle Cuba rejects US claims over health of imprisoned American citizen by: – December 7, 2012 Sharing is caring! Alan Gross. Photo credit: thewashingtonnote.comHAVANA, Cuba — Cuba has rejected what it described as manipulations by the US government with regard to the case of US citizen Allan Gross, 63, who was convicted and imprisoned in Cuba three years ago for trying to subvert the government after he was arrested for bringing banned satellite communications equipment into the country.Over the last few days, statements and reports by Washington officials in relation to Gross have intensified, particularly on the reported deterioration of his health, Josefina Vidal, the Cuban Foreign Ministry’s Director for US Affairs, said in Havana.The official claimed that the US government is lying to public opinion once again, by asserting that Gross has cancer and is not receiving adequate medical care.These lies have not stopped, continued Vidal, even after the results of the biopsy to the lesion on his back were sent to his family and US authorities, which leave no doubt that it is not cancer, said the official at a press conference.Vidal also claimed that Washington is lying about Gross’s prison conditions and his regime of phone calls and visits. The Director for US Affairs stated that Washington has never taken Gross’s case seriously, and has just reiterated the unsustainable stance that it has nothing to negotiate with Cuba to find a solution.Caribbean News Now 15 Views   no discussionscenter_img Share Share Sharelast_img read more

UWP formally withdraws election petitions from the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court

first_imgGoefrey Letang. Photo credit: Dominica Central Newspaper.The two election petitions which were brought against five candidates of the Dominica Labour Party have been formerly withdrawn from the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court.Lack of access to the state media and bribery were among matters brought before the court following the 2009 general elections but these matters were struck off.The petitions were appealed and expected to be heard at the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court on Monday.Lawyer representing the United Workers Party Jeffery Letang said the appeal would not have been successful.“When you look at the constitution which provides for appeal, it does not provide for appeal as it relates to election petition matters. The constitution provides that if you have to appeal a decision from the high court, an election petition matter, that decision should be a final one. We are of the view that the applications that were heard before Justice Errol Thomas when he allowed that the dual citizenship to proceed and the others were struck off, it was not a final decision of the court of appeal, and so it does not fall within the ambit of the Constitution which provides for an appeal hence therefore it was necessary to withdraw the appeal,” he said.Click here for audio: Letang dismissed suggestions that there was insufficient evidence to successfully prosecute the appeal, “but because we were barred by the constitution,” he said.Dominica Vibes News 29 Views   no discussions Share Share LocalNews UWP formally withdraws election petitions from the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court by: – April 11, 2011center_img Tweet Share Sharing is caring!last_img read more

first_imgColumbus, IN — A Columbus Police Department (CPD) school resource officer assigned to a Columbus middle school arrested a man with two concealed firearms Wednesday after he was spotted by the officer on school property. Columbus Chief of Police, Michael Richardson stated, “I would like to commend the officer for his swift actions today.

Ten-man Ireland U21s salvage draw

first_img Press Association Ireland were left facing a major test after defender Sean McGinty was dismissed for a foul on Youssef Toutouh early in the second half. However, they managed to hold out to claim a morale-boosting share of the spoils in Fredericia. In a game played in blistering heat, Ireland created a handful of chances on the break despite their numerical disadvantage against a side King always believed would give them just the kind of test they needed ahead of the start of the new European Championship qualifying campaign in August. Blackburn defender Anthony O’Connor went close with a 60th-minute header from Sean Murray’s free-kick, while Aston Villa midfielder Samir Carruthers almost snatched victory 12 minutes from time. He homed in on substitute Michael Harriman’s dangerous low cross but was unable to connect in front of goal. However, keeper Sean McDermott, who replaced Aaron McCarey at the break, had to make two late saves from Bassel Jradi to deny the Danes a win in a rousing conclusion to the game. Ireland, who finished third behind Italy and Turkey in qualification for this summer’s finals in Israel, open their new campaign in the Faroe Islands on August 14 and then face Germany at home the following month. center_img Noel King’s Ireland Under-21s claimed a battling 0-0 friendly draw in Denmark despite having to play for 40 minutes with only 10 men.last_img read more
