The binding protein of influenza virus hemagglutinin is. The protein can vary with each flu strain and, as a result, latch on glycans from different types of cells. – the protein from human adapted influenza viruses favors the sugars dotting the cells of the nose and throat, the one from bird flu viruses opts for glycans on cells deeper in the respiratory tract.
Sasisekharan noted that recent studies have shown that the hemagglutinin protein from the avian flu virus has on occasion to glycans of the upper airways.

From the two hundred thirty-four 234 have been successfully contacted, 98 queue analysis. Of the 98 contacts tested again, 22 Been, serological evidence of previous syphilis infection , and 19 had were withdrawn, rejected three post treatment.
Clinic employees trying syphilis patients and contact handled to Bicillin CR per letter achieve, of up to three telephone, if necessary, voice calls to emergency services numbers performed Connections on medical records. In addition, the clinical and LACDHS Press Release did inform of potentially affected patient and on the local health care providers. LACDHS public health detectives no no patients receiving was that Department or consult achieve.
