Though Epitopix is the first company to win conditional USDA approval, other groups are working on E coli vaccines for cattle. In February 2008, Bioniche, a Canadian company that developed Canada’s first E coli vaccine for cattle, said it received word from the USDA that it was in a good position to secure conditional licensure. A conditional license would allow Bioniche to sell the vaccine in the United States if at least one step in the manufacturing process takes place on US soil and the company doesn’t use a trademark name for the vaccine. “We had a decrease in cattle shedding E coli by 54% in our first study,” Thompson said in the press release. “However, we increased the amount of SRP exposure in the second field study and decreased the rate of shedding by 85%.” The large-pen studies involved 20 pens and more than 1,200 head of cattle. Thompson said researchers conducted a challenge study, a natural infection trial, and two large-pen field studies of the SRP E coli vaccine at commercial feedlots. He said the trials demonstrated that the vaccine decreased the number of cattle shedding the bacteria, the concentration of the bacteria that was shed, and the number of “super shedder” cattle. Feb 2, 2008, CIDRAP News story “E coli cattle vaccine nearing US approval” See also: Dan Thompson, associate professor of clinical sciences at Kansas State University, said in a March 27, 2008, press release from the university that foodborne pathogens use siderophore receptors and porin proteins to acquire iron. “Iron is to bacteria as oxygen is to humans. Without iron consumption, the bacteria suffocate and can’t grow or replicate,” he said, adding that the vaccine keeps the pathogen from taking up iron. The company will conduct more potency and efficacy studies to gain full approval for the vaccine, which was developed by the company’s scientists along with researchers from Kansas State University and West Texas A&M University. The vaccine uses “siderophore receptor and porin” (SRP) technology developed by Epitopix. Also, GeneThera, Inc., based in Wheat Ridge, Colo., said in November 2008 that it had signed an agreement to license and distribute an E coli vaccine developed at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, according to a previous report. A representative from the company said that the company would launch phase 2 clinical trials soon and take the vaccine to market as soon as possible. E coli O157:H7 doesn’t sicken cattle but is potentially fatal to humans. It produces a toxin that causes diarrhea, often bloody, but usually without fever. Though most patients with E coli O157:H7 infections recover in 5 to 10 days, 2% to 7% develop hemolytic uremic syndrome, a potentially fatal form of kidney failure. Epitopix announced the granting of the conditional license on Mar 5 at the Beef Industry Food Safety Council annual meeting in San Diego, according to a company press release. “It represents a significant breakthrough in the beef industry’s ongoing effort to reduce E coli O157,” said Jim Sandstrom, Epitopix’ general manager, in the press release. Nov 3, 2008, CIDRAP News story “Canada approves E coli vaccine for cattle” Because the pathogen doesn’t sicken cattle, it’s unclear how vigorously cattle producers will embrace the vaccine, some industry experts have said. Sandstrom told CIDRAP News that Epitopix has not yet set a price for a course of its vaccine. Bioniche has said its vaccine would likely cost less than $10 per head of cattle. Mar 27, 2008, K-State press release Sandstrom credited the USDA and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association for supporting several public and private E coli preharvest and postharvest interventions. “We are confident that our E coli O157:H7 SRP vaccine will play an important role for beef producers and packers as they work together to implement E coli O157:H7 control efforts,” he said. Mar 11, 2009 (CIDRAP News) The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently granted a conditional license for the nation’s first Escherichia coli O157:H7 vaccine for cattle, allowing Epitopix LLC, a Willmar, Minn., company, to immediately offer the vaccine to the beef industry.

StumbleUpon UKGC launches fourth National Lottery licence competition August 28, 2020 ASA monitoring sweep marks gambling as the worst underage advertising offender August 26, 2020 Further to publishing its ‘2020/21 Business Plan’, the UK Gambling Commission has today outlined a set of new collaborative measures and directives to strengthen its industry code and further reduce problem gambling harms.This afternoon, the UKGC published its new action plan on VIP Programmes, product design and further advertising practices, underlining that the directives have been designed to accelerate a critical agenda to protect vulnerable customers.The UKGC detailed that it has developed its new protective measures in cooperation with ‘industry working groups’ featuring executives of 30 UK operators, co-ordinated by the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC).The first item of the UKGC’s agenda sees a number of changes to VIP programmes and incentives. ‘Certain measures’ are to be implemented from 14 April, including:Restrict and prevent customers under 25 years of age from being recruited to high-value customer schemesAll customers must be cross-referenced with the appropriate spend, safer gambling and enhanced due diligence measures before qualifying for schemesAll operator reward programmes must be fully audited, detailing ‘decision making’ and demonstrate senior oversight and accountability.Protecting younger audiences, the UKGC has moved forward on its AdTech initiatives, which sees it call on the industry to implement the following by July 2020:Indexing a common list of negative search terms (e.g. how do I self-exclude from gambling?) and suppression websites, which will help shield vulnerable groups from online gambling adsThe consistent use of customer data to ensure paid-for-ads are targeting away from vulnerable groups across all digital platformsEnsuring that all gambling-related pay-per-click advertising targets consumer +25 age across all web engines, directories and social media platformsThe requirement of ‘age-gating’ YouTube channels featuring gambling-related contentAdopting a ‘code of conduct’ for affiliates which will be updated on a regular basis to ensure all measures undertaken by the industry will be implemented equally by advertising partners.The UKGC confirms that its new advertising measures will be enshrined in the IGRG’s Gambling Industry Code for Socially Responsible Advertising.Supporting its future advertising policy, the UKGC has formed a cross-industry ‘Adtech Forum’ to ensure incumbents are making further progress in this area, including conducting and evaluating trials of advertising technology.UK gambling will also progress to a new code for developing safer products, focusing on game design and the development of safety features. The Commission will publish its product code in September, but details that operators will adhere to:A minimum spin speed of 2.5 seconds across all slot gamesRemoval of game features which may encourage intensive play such as slam stops and turbo buttonsProhibiting split-screen slots which have been associated with a ‘potential loss of control’.The development of a more detailed work plan which will include in-game messaging and the creation of a Betting and Gaming Council Testing Lab to look into other game features.The Commission will launch ‘formal consultations’ on the above areas to ensure that new measures can be effectively incorporated within its governance frameworks.Neil McArthur, Gambling Commission Chief executive, said: “We have been encouraged by the progress on VIP incentives, safer advertising and safer products. We set these challenges in order to deliver real and rapid change for consumers in key areas of risk. “However, it is important these commitments are implemented as soon as possible. It should not take months to implement safeguards many would expect to be in place already. “By working together with operators and seeking the views of people with lived experience of gambling harm we have been able to make significant progress, although there is always more to do. We will now consult on the necessary changes to our rule book to ensure all operators have to meet the new standards.
