72 new infections have appeared in the world within the previous forty years
72 new infections have appeared in the world within the previous forty years. Two or three infections dangerous to man emerge every year. A Novosti news conference heard these alarming figures today from Vitali Zverev, Director, Anjaparidze Research Institute of Viral Preparations under the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences. "We have studied a mere 5 to 10 per cent of presently existing viruses, and many unpleasant surprises certainly lie ahead," he said. Inoculation is currently the only way to fight viral infections, stressed Dr. Zverev. "A vaccine is a biological product, so it inevitably produces undesirable responses," said Vladimir Tatochenko, diagnostic department head at the Children's Health Center under the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, who was also addressing the Novosti conference, which gathered researchers and practicing physicians. As the speakers reassured the audience, a vaccine will never be licensed if it breeds excessive pathogenic reactions and if complications far exceed its curative effect. R&D is going on worldwide for DNA vaccines. Based on genetic not albuminous material, they promise eventually to prevent HIV, hepatitis type C, German measles and herpes. "Such vaccines have no practical use for now-they are still under test," said Dr. Zverev.
