Foto: Tomada de Radio RelojEl doctor Reinaldo Acevedo Grogues, subdirector de Investigaciones Aplicadas del Instituto Finlay, en La Habana, informó que en dicha entidad se trabaja con el objetivo de obtener una vacuna atenuada y otra inactivada para combatir el cólera.

La atenuada está compuesta por la bacteria viva del cólera, a la que se le han extraído los factores de virulencia, o sea, que es una cepa no patógena de la enfermedad, se administra en una dosis de forma oral y en menos de 72 horas el virus es eliminado.

La explicación fue ofrecida por el especialista, quien asiste al XX Congreso Latinoamericano de Farmacología y Terapéutica (Latinfarma Habana 2013), que sesiona hasta el viernes en la capital de la isla.

Se informó que otra de las candidatas que propone el Instituto Finlay es la llamada vacuna inactivada que, a diferencia de la anterior, está compuesta por microrganismos muertos, es más sencilla, también se aplicaría por vía oral y se administraría en dos dosis.

Cuba for US Isolation at UN on Blockade

The permanent representative of Nicaragua at UN, Maria Rubiales, assured today that the United States will remain isolated again next Tuesday at the General Assembly, where a new draft Resolution will be put to the vote to put end to the blockade on Cuba.

We know that it will happen, because the vast majority of the peoples and governments worldwide are against such inhuman and criminal act, affirmed here in an interview granted to Prensa Latina.

We will not only see that except two or three countries, the vast majority will push the green bottom to demand the lifting of sanctions, but we will also listen to speeches from representatives of Africa, Latin America and other regions, she announced.

To Rubiales, it canâ�Öt be overlooked that United States blocks an island that instead of militaries, as the US government does, send army of doctors and teachers to other countries.

In October 29, the UN General Assembly will put to the vote, for 22nd occasion, consecutively , a project of resolution on the need to put end to the siege which economic damages Cuba estimates in one billion 157,327 million dollars.

The Nicaraguan diplomat called the attention on the US efforts to ignore, every year, the demand of the international community to the UN main body.

The history of rating on blockade shows that it has never reached to 5 nations oppose to the draft resolution and abstentions reached the last time twice more than in 1998.
