Replikins LLC Finds West Nile Virus Replikin Count Has Reached Its Highest Recorded Value


8/6/2007 9:38:29 AM

BOSTON, Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Replikins LLC has discovered a new group of virus structural peptides within virus proteins, called replikins, which provide virus-specific advance quantitative warnings of rapid replication and the risk of epidemics. Replikins LLC has developed software called ReplikinsForecast(TM), which quantitatively measures the concentration of these specific peptides in virus proteins (Replikin Count(TM)). Increased Replikin Counts give advanced warning by frequently preceding a virus outbreak by one or two years, and return to lower levels in advance of quiescent periods. Analysis just completed by Replikins LLC of the most currently available West Nile virus protein sequences world wide listed on PubMed indicates that the Replikin Count(TM) has increased over the past seven years to reach in 2006 its highest level recorded, indicating the potential for even more severe West Nile Virus outbreaks with higher mortality rates to come.
