The West Nile Virus appears to be firmly established in the United States, says the National Wildlife Health
Center. Researches expect its continued spread and entrenchment in wildlife populations. Since 1999, WNV
has been detected in humans, horses, birds, or mosquitoes in over 45 states.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 4200 people in the U.S. tested
positive for the West Nile Virus in 2002 and close to 300 have died of the virus. Many more people were likely
to have been infected with the virus, but experienced mild symtoms and were never tested.
In 2003 the CDC has received confirmation from state agencies of almost 9000 human cases of the West Nile
Virus resulting in just under 200 deaths.
Statistically, a person's risk of contacting the West Nile Virus is not high. In most areas where the WNV is
established fewer than 10% of that area's mosquitoes carry the virus. Fewer than 10% of people bitten by these
infected mosquitoes develop serious complications; the remainder usually exhibit flu-like symptoms.
AFTER MONTHS OF NEW STUDIES WITH CYMILIUM
AND THE RNA AND CHEMICAL STRUCTURE OF THE
WEST NILE VIRUS, OUR LABORATORIES
DISCOVERED THAT IT IS LIKELY THAT CYMILIUM
CAN CHEMICALLY DISRUPT AND INTERFERE WITH
THE VIRUS AND LIMIT INFECTION.
THE ABOVE IS INDICATED IF CYMILIUM IS APPLIED
TO THE WHEAL (SWELLING) QUICKLY AFTER
BEING BITTEN BY AN INFECTED MOSQUITO*,
USING A FULL DOSE.
AT THIS TIME CYMILIUM IS APPROVED BY THE
FDA AS AN INSECT/SEA PEST BITE TREATMENT
BUT IT HAS NOT YET EVALUATED THE ABOVE
MORE INFORMATION RELATING TO THE
WEST NILE VIRUS WILL BE ADDED.
*Of course it can't be seen if a mosquito is infected or not
