74. Analysis of Virus Gene Replikin Counts Offers Advance Look at Specifics of Next Outbreaks & Pandemics January 29, 2015
Current Discussions in Davos Emphasize Importance of Finding New Tools for Preparedness
LONDON, Jan. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Changes in the Ebola gene in 2013 predicted the 2014 outbreaks of Ebola. Changes in the gene in 2014 predicted Ebola's cessation (see attached Figure and Reprint following). 'Big Data' analysis technology of Replikins made these two predictions possible.
The correctness of these predictions demonstrate the prospect for a quick response to these viral outbreaks and pandemics, a key topic of discussion at this year's World Economic Forum in Davos.
Published gene Replikins predictions of the past decade, including the prediction of the 2009 H1N1 Pandemic (Ref. 1) and the 2014 H3N2 outbreaks (Ref. 2) have proven correct. Continuous gene surveillance could provide quick detection and appropriate response to increased pandemic potential.
