Key narcolepsy–influenza vaccine findings retracted

Posted on by

first_imgFollowing the 2009 swine flu pandemic, roughly one out of 15,000 children in Europe who received the H1N1 vaccine called Pandemrix developed narcolepsy, a disorder that causes irresistible sleepiness. A leading explanation for the rash of narcolepsy cases is that a fragment of the H1N1 virus used to produce Pandemrix may have triggered an autoimmune reaction in some vulnerable children. Researchers have struggled to find evidence for that hypothesis, however. This week, the picture grew murkier when Stanford University researchers retracted a paper in Science Translational Medicine, published 18 December 2013, that was hailed as the first evidence to support the immunological hypothesis. After several attempts, scientists say they are unable to replicate a key part of the experiment.For more, see the full story in this week’s issue of Science.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)last_img read more

The demonstration of the popular video game Fortnite, led by professional team Las Valkirias, was part of the announcement, and celebration, of UCreativa’s new partnership with Epic Games. As an Epic Academic Partner, UCreativa ensures students can learn in the tech company’s Unreal Engine, helping prepare graduates for a career in the video-game industry in Costa Rica or abroad. “This agreement means a lot for our students,” said Gabriel Serrano, UCreativa’s Director of Careers in Development and Technology. “It’s the confidence that if they want to develop using Epic software, they will be receiving a quality education.” The announcement came after several years of discussion and planning between UCreativa and Epic Games. UCreativa becomes the first Central American school to partner with Epic as an Academic Partner and joins dozens of institutions worldwide — in every content except Antarctica — that use the company’s Unreal Engine to train their students. For Epic Games representative Christian Andrade, Unreal Engine Evangelist for Latin America, the alliance opens an untapped market for the company.  Gabriel Serrano speaks during a press conference with Epic Games representative Christian Andrade. Jacob Spetzler / The Tico Times“Latin America is behind in the development of video games — but not in playing them,” Andrade said. “Why is this important? Around the rest of the world, companies that develop video games have grown to where scaling more is difficult.“This is an opportunity for Latin America.” Epic has been a leader in gaming and animation technologies for nearly 30 years. Their Unreal Engine powers popular games including Fortnite, Bioshock and Gears of War, among dozens of others. “The development industry is one of the most prolific of the orange economy,” Serrano said. “That is reflected in national companies that currently develop video games, whose developments have been published in main consoles, such as PlayStation 4, and who sell services in the largest markets in the world, from the United States to Japan.” Following the announcement, Las Valkirias (The Valkyries), Costa Rica’s first all-female professional Fortnite team, showed off the capabilities of the Unreal Engine in a Team Rumble contest displayed on a massive screen.

Jacob Spetzler / The Tico TimesThe event ended with Unreal Engine workshops for the public — giving everyone from curious teenagers to established developers a firsthand look at Epic Games’ software.“Video games generate more profits than movies and music combined,” Andrade said, “so we are in the right place to look toward the future.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more
