Young Scientific Talents Rewarded in Holguin, Cuba

{mosimage}(Ene. 06) Científicos austriacos desarrollaron una nueva técnica para producir vacunas contra la gripe A H1N1 basada en células de insectos.
El anuncio está contenido en un estudio publicado por la revista Biotecnology Journal, el cual indica que ese tipo de vacuna podría producirse de manera más rápida que el sistema tradicional, lo que abriría una nueva puerta en la lucha contra la pandemia.

Florian Krammer, científico de la Universidad de Recursos Naturales y Ciencias Aplicadas de Viena y autor principal del estudio, señaló que los recientes brotes de gripe subrayan la importancia de un suministro rápido y suficiente, ya que los métodos clásicos no atienden debidamente la demanda actual.

Recordó el experto, citado por Efe, que las vacunas tradicionales producidas a partir de huevos de gallina embrionados se pueden manufacturar en cantidades suficientes para enfrentar las diversas cepas de gripes estacionales, pero, añadió, debido a que la existencia de este tipo de huevos es limitada, podría ser insuficiente en una situación pandémica de la gripe A.

En cambio, mediante la tecnología que utiliza células de insectos, los científicos lograron recombinar partículas de virus similares a los de la gripe, pero sin su ácido nucleico, lo que imposibilita su transmisión y contagio.
Los científicos austriacos tardaron sólo diez semanas en producir ese tipo de virus para un estudio inmunológico con ratones y con este método se demostró que es posible producir una vacuna en menos tiempo, ya que antiguos sistemas tardan meses.

"Nuestros trabajo demuestra que la recombinación de partículas similares al virus es una alternativa rápida, segura y eficiente ante las vacunas convencionales contra la influenza", dijo el científico, quien también indicó que este logro representa otro frente de lucha para las nuevas cepas de gripe como la H 1N1 y también la H5N1, conocida como gripe aviar.
