3:30 p.m.: Biotech firm CytoDyn, which is working with the University of Massachusetts Medical School, briefed its shareholders on competing flu vaccines, in response to Glaxo's announcement of its success with a bird-flu vaccine. The key difference, CytoDyn CEO Allen Allen said, is that CytoDyn's product doesn't use a virus in its manufacturing process. UMass and CytoDyn are working on a tandem drug to be administered with the bird flu vaccine, so that less of the vaccine would be needed per patient and the current supply would go further.

3 p.m.: Text messages have become a key tool for Chinese authorities to get important information out, including details about bird flu, the Associated Press reports. Nearly one-third of China's 1.3 billion people have a cellphone, creating a rival to television and radio as a way to reach the public. The government has used text messages to reassure the public about bird flu outbreaks, and also sends texts to warn citizens about typhoons.

4:45 a.m.: Bird flu has been found in about 2,500 chickens that died on a farm near the Laotian capital of Vientiane last week, but the type of flu hasn't been determined yet, a Laotian official said Thursday. Lao Foreign Ministry spokesman Yong Chanthalansy confirmed a report on the Web site of the Vientiane Times newspaper that the Lao government's National Infectious Disease Prevention and Control Committee on July 18 had confirmed that the chickens died of bird flu. The results of laboratory tests to determine whether it was the virulent H5N1 virus are expected in a week or two, he said.
