“C.P. came up short last year, so he’s got something to prove to the wrestling nation,” he said.“Dustin, he’s just a big-time wrestler who thrives in pressure situations. They’ll both be raring to go.”Morgan knows what it’s like to be wrestling alongside a brother.The former two-time Big Ten Champion in 1990 and 1991 saw his older brother take the 1989 conference crown in a season where both earned All-American status.The other pair of brothers to take Big Ten titles was Larry Zilverberg, who triumphed in 1974, 1975, and 1976, and Dan Zilverberg, who captured titles in 1979 and 1980.But even with Big Ten championships under their belts for a second consecutive season, both Schlatters still have a big step to take in accomplishing the feat of adding their names to the list of brothers who have won the NCAA championship in the same year.C.P. Schlatter said his mindset is completely different this year after falling in the tournament last season, and that a chance to take home a national title alongside his brother would be something special.“Dustin is expected to win, and I feel I am ready to take the next step,” he said. “To accomplish the ultimate goal together as teammates, let alone brothers, would be amazing.”Dustin Schlatter said winning the national title last year after watching his brother fail to place has made the goal of taking the titles together the ultimate objective.“Of course it felt great last year to win it, but I was torn with my emotions,” he said. “Something was missing, and hopefully we can find it this year.” Brothers make history with Big Ten titles, but have eyes set on bigger prize Tyler RushmeyerMarch 8, 2007Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintMinnesota wrestling has seen its share of impressive sibling duos over the years, but the one currently in the spotlight continued to make history this past weekend.For the second consecutive year, junior C.P. Schlatter, along with his younger brother sophomore Dustin Schlatter, did what no sibling pair has done at Minnesota, as both took home Big Ten individual titles in the same season.The Ohio natives, the third pair of brothers to win Big Ten titles in their careers, helped lead Minnesota to its second consecutive Big Ten team title and fifth in the last seven years.It was an expected win for Dustin Schlatter, undefeated and the unanimous top seed in his weight class all season, but C.P. Schlatter had to face more adversity this season trying to defend his title.The junior, who battled back from an early season knee injury, said the No. 4 seed he was given in the Big Ten tournament as its returning champion did not sit well.“Things like that happen, but I felt like I didn’t get the respect I deserved,” he said. “I wrestled with a chip on my shoulder all weekend.”And it paid off as he used tight decisions over two of the top-five wrestlers in the nation, to take his title while younger brother Dustin continued his undefeated season and extended his career winning streak to 62 straight en route to the 149-pound crown.Dustin Schlatter said taking the title before nervously watching his brother do the same was thrilling.“I think the lower seed for C.P. turned out to be a good thing,” he said. “I just told him to go out and shut up the people who put you there.”With the Big Ten championship medals resting in their parents’ home, both said late in the season they are not yet fully satisfied.Assistant coach Marty Morgan, a former Minnesota wrestler and national title winner in 1991, said he expects big things from both the brothers at the NCAA tournament.
Jul 30, 2012Belgium, Hungary, Germany report Salmonella outbreakIn recent months three EU countries have reported 186 cases of illness caused by the same strain of Salmonella, with 60 cases having an indistinguishable pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) pattern, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) said today. This single PFGE pattern of the Salmonella Stanley samples suggests a common source, but officials have yet to identify it. The strain is typically linked to travel to Southeast Asia, particularly Thailand, but the outbreak cases appear to be unrelated to travel, the ECDC reported. Belgium reported 26 lab-confirmed outbreak cases as of Jul 26, compared with an annual average of 3 to 6. Since September 2011 Hungary has reported 110 Salmonella Stanley cases (91 in 2012), and since August 2011 Germany has confirmed 50 cases. Of those, 20 Belgian, 32 Hungarian, and 8 German cases share a matching PFGE pattern. Case-patients in general tend to be young, but the median age for those with the same PFGE pattern is 7 years. And, of the 40 identical-PFGE patients with symptomatic illness, 53% required hospitalization. The ECDC is alerting countries to be vigilant for the strain and especially for the PFGE pattern, but it said in a news release today, “The impact on public health across the EU is considered to be limited.”Jul 30 ECDC news releaseJul 30 ECDC reportGAO highlights issues with new FDA food-recall powersPassage of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) in Jan 2011 gave the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) new authority to order food recalls, but it also directed the Governmental Accountability Office (GAO) to explore how the FDA would implement its authority, communicate recalls and outbreaks to the public, and compensate the food industry for erroneously ordered recalls or advisories. The GAO, in a Jul 26 report, noted that foodborne illness outbreaks are not only a health threat, they also have serious economic and consumer-confidence consequences. GAO investigators looked at the recall processes used by other federal agencies, reviewed FDA documents, and interviewed a host of stakeholders from May 2011 to July 2012. They found that FDA officials have drafted internal interim procedures for ordering recalls but haven’t made them publicly available. The GAO said without the information, it’s unclear if the FDA’s recall practices would be applied uniformly or consistently. Though the FDA has started discussing the issues, it still hasn’t adopted a recommendation from a risk communication committee on communications during emerging events. Investigators found government mechanisms that might be used to compensate producers but no examples of their use. The GAO recommended that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) order the FDA to take several actions, including documenting the recall process and how it will weigh evidence about whether a recall is needed. In response to the report, the HHS said it didn’t agree or disagree with the recommendations but said it has actions in progress to address most of them.Jul 26 GAO report
NEWS SCAN: Kink in rabies immune globulin supply, FDA food pathogen tools, malaria vaccine grant, tickborne disease in Europe
Sep 19, 2012Sanofi redirecting requests for human rabies immune globulinSanofi Pasteur is temporarily unable to fill orders for Imogam, its human rabies immune globulin, and is directing requests for the product to Grifols/Talecris Biotherapeutics, which supplies the HyperRAB brand of human rabies immune globulin, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said today. The agency stopped short of calling the situation a shortage, describing it as a “supply constraint.” It said Grifols/Talecris is expected to meet the demand for the product until more lots of Imogam are available from Sanofi in late November. The problem doesn’t affect patient-care recommendations and human rabies immune globulin is still available, the CDC added. Regarding temporary shortages of rabies vaccine, the situation has not changed since the CDC’s last update on Sep 11. Rabies vaccine for preexposure use is in limited supply from Novartis and Sanofi Pasteur, but health providers can get RabAvert, made by Novartis, from wholesale distributors. So far there are no limits on rabies vaccine for postexposure prophylaxis (PEP), and Sanofi is still able to send vaccine for patients with documented rabies exposure. The vaccine supply is expected to improve when new lots are cleared in coming weeks and months.Sep 19 CDC rabies immune globulin updateSep 13 CIDRAP News story “Tight rabies vaccine supply prompts health alerts”FDA awards contract for tools to analyze food pathogen genomesThe US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) yesterday awarded a contract to Illumina Inc., of San Diego, for technology it hopes will speed pathogen identification on produce, the company said in a news release. The funding is for Illumina to provide the FDA with its MiSeq sequencing systems and reagents for conducting whole-genome analyses of Salmonella and Shiga-toxin–producing Escherichia coli isolates from produce and produce-related environmental samples. The contract is worth up to $17 million over 5 years. The FDA already deploys several MiSeq systems, but the new award is to enhance its ability to conduct whole-genome analysis and collect data crucial for tracking the sources of Salmonella in produce-related outbreaks. Using MiSeq, FDA and state laboratories will be able to generate whole-genome sequences from historical pathogen collections and from bacteria collected from produce, the release said.Sep 18 Illumina news releaseCompanies win NIH grant to develop tandem malaria vaccinesTwo companies, Protein Potential LLC and Aduro BioTech Inc., announced today that they have been awarded a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to develop two malaria vaccines that will be administered sequentially with the aim of inducing long-lasting protection. Both vaccines stimulate immune responses that target the circumsporozoite protein (CSP) antigen of Plasmodium falciparum, the companies said in a joint press release. Protein Potential, of Rockville, Md., the project leader, will use its expertise in producing recombinant proteins to make CSP that can be combined with one or more adjuvants. Aduro, of Berkeley, Calif., will use its platform technology based on live-attenuated Listeria monocytogenes to engineer a strain that expresses recombinant CSP. Together, the vaccines will stimulate both humoral and cellular immune responses. The goal is to develop a prime-boost regimen that targets more than one P falciparum strain to be tested in human clinical trials. “The novel regimen is designed to induce the spectrum of immune responses that is believed to be essential for long-lasting protection against malaria,” the companies said. Protein Potential spokesman Adam Richman, PhD, said the grant, a Phase 1 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) award, is worth $300,000 per year for 2 years, spanning July 2012 through June 2014.Sep 19 joint press releaseNIH information about the SBIR programECDC report profiles tickborne encephalitis patternsThe European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) yesterday published its first major report on the prevalence of tickborne encephalitis (TBE) in Europe from 2000 to 2010, a move intended to build support for harmonizing TBE surveillance and increase prevention efforts. TBE is endemic across large parts of Europe and Asia, and the virus causes thousands of cases of neuroinvasive disease in Europe each year. The report includes data from 20 of 30 countries in the region and highlights key risk areas, seasonal peaks, and groups at risk, the ECDC said in a press release. The main risk areas are the Nordic and Baltic countries, eastern and central Europe, and southern Europe, including northern Italy and the Balkans. Men ages 40 to 60, particularly those who work outdoors, may be at increased risk for the disease, which peaks seasonally from June to October. In 16 countries reporting TBE case data, the annual numbers were relatively stable over the decade, ranging from about 1,900 to 2,630, with notable increases in 2003, 2006, 2009, and 2010. The new report follows a Sep 5 European Commission decision to add TBE to the list of notifiable diseases. ECDC Director Marc Sprenger, MD, PhD, said in the press release that TBE prevalence should be lower, considering that vaccines against the disease are safe and protective.Sep 18 ECDC press release
