blazer vintage femme , Nov. 14 (Xinhua) -- The World Health
Organization (WHO) on Friday released an update on discussions over Ebola
experimental interventions, highlighting the necessity to quicken clinical
trial of blood products and medicines to address the Ebola outbreaks.
To facilitate and accelerate the appropriate clinical testing and generation
of quality date of potential therapeutic interventions for Ebola virus disease,
WHO convened a meeting of the Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee for
Ebola Experimental Interventions (STAC-EE) in Geneva on November 11 to 12.
According to a statement released by WHO, data did not permit evaluation of
efficacy of interventions applied to whom were evacuated from West Africa to
well-resourced facilities in other countries, and the comparatively high
survival rate observed in these patients may be due to a variety of factors
including the high standard of care they received.
"Because they all received various of mixed drugs nike blazer
vintage pas cher , it was impossible to draw any conclusion,
either onto the safety of these experimental drugs, or onto the efficacy of
these drugs," Martin Friede, who's in charge of WHO's work on Ebola drugs told
a press conference nike

standard of care can contribute significantly to improve survival.
WHO noted the Phrase 1 of clinical trials of convalescent whole blood and
convalescent plasma that are ready to start in two affected countries.
"There is actually not tremendous amount of evidence that convalescent blood
or plasma is efficacious, therefore this does need to be tested," Friede
He said the first challenge in doing this is getting quality and safe blood
from patients that recovered from Ebola and he admitted infrastructure of West
Africa countries to gather, collect and treat the blood, is very limited.
In terms of proposals for potential products Against Ebola from the
scientific community nike

tested and shown to have no activity against the virus.
WHO added one such product, the antiretroviral lamivudine, has been used in
some of the affected countries, has no antiviral activity against Ebola and
should therefore not be administered for the treatment of Ebola.
Since many products at various stages of development and with varying
degrees of supportive date, STAC-EE developed a set of criteria regarding
minimal preclinical and clinical date that should be met in order for a product
to be considered for inclusion in clinical trials.
WHO noted several products with strong preclinical evidence of efficacy
against Ebola virus nike
blazer fleuri haute femme , their availability is limited and
intermittent due to in early stages of development and the process for
manufacturing scale-up has not yet been developed.
Friede said for promising medicines like Zmapp and sRNAs, these drugs in
monkeys work rather well, but unfortunately these drugs are very difficulty to
scale up, nobody has yet to boost the capacity to produce these in very large
However, for other product which presented less of supply
blazer fleuri haute , still lack of preclinical supportive
"What's certain is that we don't have a lot of drugs in our pipeline, which
looks promising. We have to establish a working group, which will be reviewing
drugs at ongoing bases and trying to find some supportive data," he added.
BERLIN, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) -- The German economy increased by 0.1 percent in
the third quarter nike

according to the preliminary estimate of the Federal Statistical Office
(Destatis) on Tuesday.
The strongest economy in Europe narrowly escaped a recession in the third
quarter, thanks to the growth in private consumption, government spending, and
net exports nike

Private consumption increased by 0.7 percent in the third quarter and played
a major role in boosting economic expansion, Destatis said.
Government spending and exports were up by 0.6 and 1.9 percent,
respectively, generating an upward effect on GDP growth.
However, gross fixed capital formation in machinery and equipment plunged by
2.3 percent in the third quarter nike blazer fleuri
femme , investment in construction declined by 0.3 percent.
Enterprises' inventories also dropped, slowing the GDP growth by 0.5 percentage
Germany's gross domestic product decreased by 0.1 percent during the three
months from April to June following a rise of 0.8 percent at the start of this
Recent data showed some relief for those who feared a recession in German
economy. German business confidence stopped a six-months drop in November, and
investors' morale were boosted this month for the first time in 2014.
It is almost certain, however, that the engine of the euro zone economy
would fail to lead the common currency area as powerful as it has been in
The German government has cut its 2014 growth rate to 1.2 percent from the
1.9 percent it predicted earlier this year nike blazer

between the West and Russia.
