Expectant mothers is at the larger risk of the complications of the influenza, if him S the seasonal flu or pandemias of the past. We also see some serious complications among women with this year , original of virus H1N1 of S Dr. Anne Schuchat, the centers for control and the prevention of the diseases of the United States 'assistant editor temporary of S for the science and the program of public health, indicated during a teleconference of afternoon.

The doctors can be little laid out to treat the expectant mothers with antiviral drugs such as Tamiflu and Relenza, and the expectant mothers can be little laid out to take them out of the fear which they can pose a risk during the pregnancy, Schuchat said.

Schuchat stated Monday that the federal agents of Health shifted their hearth of various cases from the infection to the test to project what is likely to occur with the virus in autumn. Since the new virus -- Technically called H1N1 -- is a genetic mixture strongly not very common of bird, pig and the viruses of human, agents of Health worry that it could continue to undergo a change and to turn over in a more virulent form for the season of nearest influenza of winter 'of S.
The CDC is concerned with what will occur like this new virus enters the southern hemisphere, where the season of influenza is about to start. The agency also prepares with the virus 'with the probable return in autumn to the northern hemisphere, Schuchat indicated.

The test noted that the virus of influenza of pigs remains likely of two drugs, antiviral Tamiflu and Relenza commun runs, according to the CDC.
Schuchat stated Monday that the confirmed cases were probable right the emerged parts of the iceberg. Many people who become sick put 'attention medical of search for T and are never examined for this constraint of the influenza. Nombre we are report are minority of real infection who occur in, of country it said.
The report Monday in the Science of newspaper, researchers of the World Health Organization indicated that the flu epidemic of pigs has the universal potential and is likely to be comparable with other pandemias of the 20th century -- at least in terms of its diffusion.
The report/ratio also suggested that the true number of -- mainly not paid -- the infections of influenza of pigs in Mexico, the demonstration 'epicentre of S, probably had already reached 32.000 towards the end of April. The World Health Organization the 'official control of S for Mexico rose Tuesday with 2.059 confirmed human infections, including the 56 deaths.

But secretary Jose' Angel Cordova of health said that this reflects an arrear of test: The last confirmed case was on May 8, Associated Press reported.
Also Tuesday, an expert of WHO expressed the support of the more selective use of antiviral medicines such as Tamiflu and Relenza. As paid by AP, Dr. Nikki Shindo said that while some European countries aggressively employ these drugs in all the population, country like Mexico and the United States, they try to save the treatment for patients under fundamental conditions and also the other groups in danger, like the expectant mothers.
Swiss possession AG of Rock of manufacturer of drug indicated that it gave to the WHO enough of Tamiflu for 5.65 million people.
