a) “Road map” representations (36, 37) of poliovirus (Left) and rhinovirus-14 [Right; (33)]. The corresponding triangular area of the capsid surface, bounded by a 5-fold and two 3-fold icosahedral symmetry axes, is marked (Inset). The radial distances of surface residues from the virion center are color coded and contoured [see key (Top Right)]. Nomenclature: 3145, residue 145 of VP3. The receptor footprints are shown in white. (b) A ribbon diagram (38) of the sPvr model is flanked by two views (39) of a single sPvr molecule as portrayed in the cryoelectron microscopy density map (white cage), enclosing the model of the three sPvr domains, d1 (cyan), d2 (orange), and d3 (violet). Carbohydrates attached to d2 [to N188(Left) and N237 (Right)] and possibly to d1 are shown in brown. Also shown are the capsid proteins VP1 (blue), VP2 (yellow), VP3 (red), and VP4 (green). The tunnel beneath the sPvr-binding site is evident (white arrows). “Pocket factor” is magenta. (c) The sPvr sequence is mapped onto secondary structural elements of the homology model. Asn residues thought to be glycosylated are marked with asterisks. (d) Ribbon diagram (38) showing the docking of the sPvr model onto the capsid surface. Same color conventions as in b. The axes allow this view to be related to Fig.. (e) Schematic diagram showing a possible binding configuration of poliovirus with intact membrane-bound Pvr.http://www.pnas.org/content/97/1/73.long
More than 400 eminent scientists from 80 countries around the world have announced their backing for an ambitious global plan to eradicate polio, a disease that once paralysed and killed millions.
Despite security threats and doubts about funding, scientists say the aim of ending polio so that “no child will ever again be crippled by this disease” is achievable.
Launching the Scientific Declaration on Polio Eradication, they called on governments, international organisations and philanthropic individuals to fund the $5.5bn (£3.5bn) cost of eliminating the few remaining cases of polio and end transmission of the disease by 2014, so that the world may be declared polio-free in 2018.
The goal is remarkably close. After a quarter century of eradication efforts the number of cases has fallen more than 99 per cent – from 350,000 in 1988 to 223 in 2012. So far this year – up to 9 April – there have been 18 cases.
There are just three countries remaining where the disease is still endemic – Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nigeria – compared with 125 in 1988.
But there remain huge barriers. The global eradication effort has already missed four deadlines for elimination of the disease – often because funds fell short and polio resurged.
At a briefing in London, experts said 90 per cent of the funding for the first year of the programme was already in place, but a further $2bn was required in later years.
“We need to get the money upfront so that the programme can run unhampered,” said Jay Wenger, director at the Gates Foundation.
In the mid-2000s, an outbreak of polio in Nigeria spread across West Africa, re-infecting countries that had previously eliminated the disease. “That cost half a billion dollars to put right,” Dr Wenger said.
The other major threat to the success of the programme is security: 23 clinic workers were shot dead in Pakistan and Nigeria between December and January by terrorists who believed the vaccination programme was part of an American plot. David Heymann, chair of Public Health England, said: “Eliminating the last 1 per cent of cases is an immense challenge. But by working together we can make history.”

“The chief minister has ordered an inquiry into the incident,” state’s director of health services B Satpathy told PTI here.
Mr. Satpathy said that an apparent negligence was detected in the matter which led to the suspension of four health workers, but the wrong administration of Hepatitis B vaccine had no adverse impact on the children who were discharged from Arambagh sub-divisional hospital today.
While a Hooghly report quoting official sources said that 114 children were admitted to the hospital, Satpathy said that 67 kids were rushed to hospital after it was detected they were given Hepatitis B vaccine instead of pulse polio drops at the camp by mistake.Mr. Satpathy said that 14 other children were later taken to the hospital as their parents became panicky after hearing that many kids were given “wrong drops“.He said that the suspended persons included a supervisor who reached the camp late and he was in charge of distribution.
Admitting that the incident had created panic among the villagers, Satpathy said a team of health department personnel, including doctors, was sent to the houses of the affected children “and all of them were found to be in good condition“.He said that Hepatitis B vaccine is injectable, “but it has no adverse effect on health when administered orally“.Mr. Satpathy described the incident as “unfortunate and unwarranted“.On Sunday was a pulse polio day, so parents had taken their children to the polio booth at the Khatul village under Arambagh sub-divison, the sources said.They said that the wrong administration was detected by one of the parents who immediately informed the matter to the health workers and the villagers, but by then most of the children had already been given the Hepatitis B vaccine orally.Angry villagers then locked up the health workers and the local Block Development Officer (BDO) and the Sub-Divisional Officer (SDO) Arambagh who rushed to the spot to pacify them.Hooghly District Magistrate Manmeet Nanda said two others, including an anganwadi worker, were suspended.
