How was Baxter International able to patent their H1N1 swine flu vaccine one year before the Mexico Outbreak?
Big Pharma: Baxter Files Swine Flu Vaccine Patent a Year Ahead of Outbreak
"Novartis recalled its 'swine flu' HIN1 vaccine in February 2009, two months before the outbreak of the allegedly NEW and unseen 'swine flu' H1N1 outbreak in Mexico City in April.
The timing of the recall of the H1N1 vaccine raised questions concerning how Novartis could have had a vaccine for the 'swine flu' H1N1 virus on the market months before this allegedly NEW and dangerous 'swine flu" virus appeared in Mexico in April. The appearance of the H1N1 virus was allegedly so new and so dangerous that WHO felt obliged to declare a pandemic emergency level 6 even though there've been hardly any deaths around the globe officially attributed to the so-called 'swine flu'.
As a result of this declaration of a pandemic level emergency, WHO's vaccine advisory group packed with executives from BAXTER and NOVARTIS recommended worldwide vaccination, a recommendation WHO translated into a guideline with legal force.
Now, billions of people around the world face the prospect of a mandatory vaccination with unproven, toxic substances for a harmless virus that has been bioengineered to be lethal."

"It does look damning, a patent for a manufacturing process for the H1N1 swine flu. However, H1N1 is not a species name, rather it refers to the two types of Antegins on the virus."
Yes, and those antigens (mispelled in your response) are proteins that are found on the surface of the virus, by which the body's immune system identifies it.
It is correct to say that H1N1 is not literally the name of the virus, but it is functionally equivalent, being that the name of the virus is Influenza A, and its subtype H1 N1 is used to further distinguish it.
The H and N from H1N1 has the meaning hemagglutinin (H) "form 1" and neuraminidase "form 1". The form (chemical structure) that each protein can take is numbered and classified, and different combinations of these are used to distinguish Influenza A strains in practice - aside from looking at the viral DNA which may differ considerably within these subtypes I have outlined.
So this patent is much more damning than some would have you believe. It's also worth looking at who has invested in these companies recently, as well as in the companies who produce the antivirals used to combat the symptoms. You find some interesting names: "Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Barack Obama", barely believable is it?
Truth is stranger than fiction.

Here is the patent that they reference as 2009/0060950 A1: http://appft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PT...
It does look damning, a patent for a manufacturing process for the H1N1 swine flu. However, H1N1 is not a species name, rather it refers to the two types of Antegins on the virus. Vaccine makers are primarily concerned with these antigens because, if they can stimulate the body's defenses against the particular H and N proteins, they can allow the body to stop the infection before it starts.
"HA codes for haemaglutinin, an antigenic glycoprotein found on the surface of the influenza viruses and is responsible for binding the virus to the cell that is being infected. NA codes for neuraminidase, an antigenic glycosylated enzyme found on the surface of the influenza viruses. It facilitates the release of progeny viruses from infected cells." from http://www.thetruthaboutbirdflu.com/THETRUTHABOUTB...
Furthermore, the Avian, Swine, and human tags simply refer to the primary host of the specific strain. One of the keys is in you statement that the virus was new and unseen. This virus may be a new version, one that can be passed from human to human, where previously it could only be passed pig to pig or pig-human, but the manner in which a vaccine stops it is the same.
Therefore, though the timing may be coincidental, it is not a smoking gun, there was a virus in swine, with the subtype H1N1 already known long ago. Here is a paper talking about a swine flu H1N1 outbreak published in 1993, well before the current outbreak. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8517008?ordinal...
The truth may not be as sexy as a conspiracy, but it is the truth.

Because the whole swine flu is basically a hoax. It has killed very few people, in fact most said to have died of this hoax flu actually died of other complications, in other words they were unhealthy and had other ailments to begin with.
The real reason its being hyped is to sell the vaccine to the people. Don't believe the hype. In 1976 the swine flu vaccine they used then killed tens of thousands where the actual flu killed almost no one.
Dr. Sherri Tenpenny is very clear when she talks about what the deal is with this vaccine.
Here is her site and the info is amazing.Source(s): http://drtenpenny.com/default.aspx

What I think is odd is that Napalitano blamed the lack of available vaccine on the fact that it was being produced in the "private sector". As if to say the government could have done a better job or to remove the government's responsibility ( the old Democrat blame-game).

Epidemic of swine influenza can be prevented by the self-hemotherapy
In times of crisis, and in particular that we are living now, all possible resources to mitigate the effects of the crisis must be sought and evaluated.
Since 2004, the Brazilians are aware of the therapeutic procedure in the very old and traditional medical and veterinary, known as self-hemotherapy from a video circulated on the Internet through You Tube, containing an interview with Dr. Luiz Moura, resident doctor in Rio de Janeiro.
Subsequently the procedure was banned by ANVISA in 2007, which fortunately did not prevent many people who continue using the procedure in the treatment and prevention of many diseases such as acne, arthritis, asthma, amidalite, gout, influenza and even several diseases auto-immune. After the ban, the patients who were using the self-hemotherapy were mobilized in their defense and have signed a petition addressed to the President of the Republic, requesting the release of the practice claiming that it is a therapeutic procedure with no known risk to the patient and extremely effective in the prevention of diseases in general, since it is a nonspecific vaccine, capable of strengthening the immune system against various diseases, including influenza, caused by different types of viruses.
As the world lives in a climate of panic because the risk of swine flu appeared in Mexico in abril/2009, becoming a global pandemic like the Spanish flu of 1918, which some estimates reached 50 million deaths, or the Asian flu 1968, our duty to re consider the question of the use of self-hemotherapy in Brazil. The Spanish flu came to Brazil in October 1918 and remained for several weeks, until the end of November, but it was enough to kill at least 35 thousand people, mostly in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. According to scholars and medical specialists worldwide, a new influenza pandemic occurs more or less every 40 years and was last recorded in 1968, influenza in Hong Kong or Asia, where it is estimated that killed some 4 million people in the world. So 1918 + 50 = 1968 + 40 = 2008. Influenza was late, but arrived. Not by chance the World Health Organization (WHO) with the assistance of experts from around the world is pointing since the end of the 90s about the threat of an influenza pandemic in this new century. It is believed that, despite the current resources in the medical field and in the best condition of health of the global population, the ease of transport and the huge mass of people to move to each corner of the world each day will be able to spread the virus to all continents in only 4 days.
Taking into account that the application of preventive injection of the patient's own blood, taken from the vein and apply the muscle has the property of strengthening the reticule-endothelial system (immune system) as it stimulates the body to increase the number of macrophages in the blood from 5% to 22% in 8 hours after application, maintaining that level for 5 days, is extremely useful, given the epidemic of swine flu, the application of the vaccine, not only for Brazilians who will travel to Mexico, but also to Mexicans have not yet hit by flu, which already has the mortality rate of 6%, demonstrating that this is really an epidemic of great gravity.
If the epidemic spread to other countries, which seems inevitable as the daily traffic of persons from Mexico and the disease continues to have an incubation period of 3 to 7 days, just a passenger contaminated by viruses, into a country to create conditions for transmission of the virus to others and so on. Is provided only as a vaccine specific for this strain of influenza in swine in about 6 months, by then the epidemic will have produced a disaster of major proportions.
Moreover we know that the influenza virus, the cause of influenza, because of their constant mutability, requires the production of new medicines. Even the vaccine, an important innovation emerged in the mid 90s, could have reduced efficacy in terms of the characteristic of the disease to submit to each winter with a new look.
As this is an emergency, we believe the prudent application of the injection of blood from the patient's own vein (5 ml.), With an interval of 5 days to maintain the body with the index of macrophages in blood around 22% especially if the epidemic really is installed and remain for a long time.
Obviously we can not ignore also the food, which must be of good quality, including vegetables, legumes and fruits, especially citrus and those with large amounts of vitamin C, such as cherry, kiwi, cashew, etc.. Clearly, in the case of an epidemic, we must also avoid agglomerations, indoors, cinemas, theaters, etc., using surgical masks for protection, and goggles to protect eyes, can also absorb the virus.
And there are no contra-indications for the procedure of self-hemotherapy believe a humanitarian issue, before the current
