Vietnam has had a total of 103 human situations of bird flu infections, including 49 fatalities, because the disease first hit the united states in December 2003. To be able to curb the pass on of the virus an incredible number of birds have already been culled and according to the Department of Pet Health, the two main centres of illness seem to be northern Thai Nguyen and central Quang Binh province. Although H5N1 remains a virus of birds mainly, experts be concerned that the virus will mutate into a form quickly transmitted between humans and trigger a worldwide pandemic which could kill millions. The H5N1 virus has killed 227 people of the 360 known cases; the majority of those deaths have been around in Indonesia, followed by Vietnam..Many radiation oncologists and lung cancer specialists are amazed by this finding. Although the perfect radiation dosage for lung cancer sufferers has not been examined in a randomized phase III trial for over 30 years, most believed that higher dosages of radiation cured more patients with lung cancer, Jeffrey Bradley, MD, a radiation oncologist at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, stated. The goal of the phase III trial was to find out if high doses of radiation improve survival and in addition if the chemotherapy medication, Cetuximab, boosts survival among stage III non-small cell lung tumor patients. Investigators randomized 423 patients to different dosages of radiation therapy and concurrent chemotherapy of paclitaxel and carboplatin with or without Cetuximab.
