Recent Outbreak of Hand-Foot-Mouth Disease in 2.2 Million Children (WHO) Preceded and Predicted by Increase in the HFMD Genomic Replikin® Count

LONDON, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bioradar UK Ltd has found that the virus genomic Replikin® Count in Hand-Foot-Mouth Disease (HFMD) increased fourfold worldwide from 2005 to 2012 (Figure). All HFMD genomes on Pubmed were analyzed for Replikins (References). Increase in the genomic Replikin®Count (number of genomic Replikins per 100 amino acids) alone preceded and predicted the increases in the number of cases (p<0.001).

From 2010 to 2011, Counts exceeding 4.0 appeared and have since continued to increase in percent of the total virus population. There were 30,000 cases in China in 2008 and 2.2 million in 2012 (WHO). Genomic Replikin®Counts, alone, have now been correct 12 successive times in different virus species and strains at predicting outbreaks (References). Replikin®Count prediction has permitted the design of solid phase completely synthetic Replikins HFMD Vaccine.
