Assessing the State of Knowledge Regarding the Effectiveness of Interventions to Contain Pandemic Influenza Transmission: A Systematic Review and Narrative Synthesis.

Autor(es): Saunders-Hastings, Patrick; Reisman, Jane; Krewski, Daniel
Fonte: PLoS One;11(12): e0168262, 2016.
MEDLINE - Literatura Internacional em Ciências da Saúde PMID: 27977760
Resumo: BACKGROUND: Influenza pandemics occur when a novel influenza strain, to which humans are immunologically naïve, emerges to cause infection and illness on a global scale. Differences in the viral properties of pandemic strains, relative to seasonal ones, can alter the effectiveness of interventions typically implemented to control seasonal influenza burden. As a result, annual control activities may not be sufficient to contain an influenza pandemic. PURPOSE: This study seeks to inform pand (mais)

MEDLINE - Literatura Internacional em Ciências da Saúde PMID: 27246678
Resumo: BACKGROUND: This study describes the perceived impact of H1N1 influenza and the adoption of the recommended measures to address the pandemic in schools. METHODS: A cross-sectional self-reported survey was conducted in 433 schools in Barcelona addressed to the school principal or the H1N1 influenza designated person. A descriptive analysis was performed, stratifying by educational level and type of school. A logistic regression analysis also was conducted. RESULTS: Around 70% of the responde (mais)

MEDLINE - Literatura Internacional em Ciências da Saúde PMID: 27188950
Resumo: Influenza is a significant problem within hospitals, leading to extended hospital stays, excess morbidity and mortality, and economic loss. Prevention and control strategies are generally "bundled"; therefore, the individual effects of particular strategies and the value of combined strategies cannot be determined directly, making it difficult to discern the optimal strategy. To quantify the individual and joint effectiveness of several known influenza infection control measures used in gen (mais)

The environmental deposition of influenza virus from patients infected with influenza A(H1N1)pdm09: Implications for infection prevention and control.

MEDLINE - Literatura Internacional em Ciências da Saúde PMID: 26653976
Resumo: In a multi-center, prospective, observational study over two influenza seasons, we sought to quantify and correlate the amount of virus recovered from the nares of infected subjects with that recovered from their immediate environment in community and hospital settings. We recorded the symptoms of adults and children with A(H1N1)pdm09 infection, took nasal swabs, and sampled touched surfaces and room air. Forty-two infected subjects were followed up. The mean duration of virus shedding was (mais)

Resumo: OBJECTIVE: We present a model for the 2009 influenza epidemic in Mexico to describe the observed pattern of the epidemic from March through the end of August (before the onset of the expected winter epidemic) in terms of the reproduction number and social isolation measures. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The model uses a system of ordinary differential equations. Computer simulations are performed to optimize trajectories as a function of parameters. RESULTS: We report on the theoretical consequenc (mais)

Resumo: This document provides technical information on hand washing and the use of personal protective equipment(PPE) during the Influenza (H1N1) Pandemic, to mitigate the risk of transmission and accumulation of infected cases at national and community levels. It is intended for health care managers1 in all countries in the Regionof the Americas, which may or may not have probable or confirmed cases of infection. It will be revised as the situation evolves and additional information becomes available.(AU)

Resumo: A pandemic is a global disease outbreak. A flu pandemic occurs when a new influenza virus emergesfor which people have little or no immunity, and for which there is no vaccine. The disease spreads easily person-to-person, causes serious illness, and can sweep across the country and around the world in a very short time.It is difficult to predict when the next influenzapandemic will occur or how severe it will be.Wherever and whenever a pandemic starts, everyonearound the world is at risk.

Resumo: The current situation as this plan is finalized is as follows: A virulent influenza strain, H5N1, is currently causing a pandemic among migratory birds and poultry flocks around the world. H5N1 is the subject of focus and concern because humans lack immunity to it, because there are no available human vaccines against H5N1, and because there is close contact between humans and poultryùconditions that combined could enable the strain to mutate or genetically re-assort with a human influenza (mais)
