NEW PERSIMUNE publication

Rapid estimation of severity of new pandemic influenza types is essential to gauge appropriate level of intervention; the some severe the more intense the intervention. During the 2009 pandemic, Mexican authorities reported substantial severity expressed as a high case fatality rate. In this report, prof Lone Simonsen from CHIP/PERSIMUNE at Righospitalet uses data from a global cohort study lead by INSIGHT to estimate this rate, and find that it was 16 fold lower than initial estimates. These observations can be used to more reliable assess severity in next influenza pandemic. Find the full publication here

CHIP and INSIGHT mourn the loss of Professors David Cooper and Fred Gordin who passed away 18 March

It is with incredible sadness that we have learned of the passing of two pillars of the INSIGHT network, Fred Gordin in Washington DC and David Cooper in Sydney. 

Fred’s leadership in INSIGHT was unparalleled. He directed the Washington International Coordinating Centre, chaired CPCRA, the SMART and currently the START protocol. Fred’s scientific interests focused on pulmonary disease, and his life-long leadership in tuberculosis research is widely acknowledged. 
David led the Sydney International Coordinating Centre of INSIGHT. David was a central figure in global HIV research for more than three decades and in forming INSIGHT’s studies and research output over the years. The Kirby Institute @ UNSW embodies David’s leadership. As former president of IAS and builder of research structures in Bangkok and elsewhere in Asia, David was an inspiring and visionary leader. 

Fred and David will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with their friends and families. 

CHIP and INSIGHT honor their legacy.

New WHO surveillance protocol for viral hepatitis

The World Health Organization calls for better monitoring of viral hepatitis with the launch of a new protocol. The objective of the protocol is to improve the understanding of the link between viral hepatitis and the 2 main consequences: cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Better understanding of linkages between viral hepatitis and liver cancer will be key to improving global and national policies and strategies to reduce deaths caused by both diseases.
The late presentation definition used in the protocol builds on a consensus definition developed in 2017 involving authors from CHIP
