Influenza B Virus
Species of the genus INFLUENZAVIRUS B that cause HUMAN INFLUENZA and other diseases primarily in humans. Antigenic variation is less extensive than in type A viruses (INFLUENZA A VIRUS) and consequently there is no basis for distinct subtypes or variants. Epidemics are less likely than with INFLUENZA A VIRUS and there have been no pandemics. Previously only found in humans, Influenza B virus has been isolated from seals which may constitute the animal reservoir from which humans are exposed.
Hemagglutinin Glycoproteins, Influenza Virus
Membrane glycoproteins from influenza viruses which are involved in hemagglutination, virus attachment, and envelope fusion. Fourteen distinct subtypes of HA glycoproteins and nine of NA glycoproteins have been identified from INFLUENZA A VIRUS; no subtypes have been identified for Influenza B or Influenza C viruses.
Influenza A Virus, H1n2 Subtype
A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS comprised of the surface proteins hemagglutinin 1 and neuraminidase 2. It is endemic in both human and pig populations.
Influenza A Virus, H7n2 Subtype
A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS comprised of the surface proteins hemagglutinin 7 and neuraminidase 2. It has been involved in a number of outbreaks in the 21st century on poultry farms and has been isolated a few times in humans.
Influenza A Virus, H10n7 Subtype
A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS comprised of the surface proteins hemagglutinin 10 and neuraminidase 7. It has been isolated from a variety of wild and domestic animals including ducks, emu, and mink. It was found for the first time in humans in 2004.
Background. Severe influenza is characterized by cytokine storm and multiorgan failure with edema. The aim of this study was to define the impact of the cytokine storm on the pathogenesis of vascular...
Neutrophils have an important role in early host protection during influenza A virus infection. Their ability to modulate the virus-specific adaptive immune response is less clear. Here, we have used...
ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Influenza virus is a major cause of respiratory disease worldwide and Streptococcus pneumoniae infection associated with influenza often leads to severe complications. Dendritic...
PURPOSE: Children with down syndrome (DS) have an increased susceptibility to infections, due to altered humoral and/or cellular immunity. The aim of this study was to determine...
Cytokine storm has been postulated as one of the major causes of mortality in patients with severe respiratory viral infections such as influenza. With the help of an influenza Ag- specific mouse expe...
The goal of this study is to determine whether Fluviral, an inactivated, injectable trivalent influenza vaccine (flu shot) is effective in preventing respiratory illnesses that are severe...
Each winter, viruses belonging to two kinds of influenza A ("A/H1N1" & "A/H3N2") and two kinds of influenza B ("B/Yamagata" & "B/Victoria") can cause illness. The yearly influenza vaccine...
To perform a variety of assays on blood, nasal washes, and cells obtained from healthy children for the purposes of further investigation of immune responses generated by influenza virus v...
The primary objective of this study was to perform a variety of immunological assays on blood, serum, nasal wash samples, and cells obtained from healthy adult subjects for the purpose of...
H9N2 influenza circulates in animal and poultry and has caused delf limiting infections in children. Influenza H9N2 poses a pandemic threat to humans. This study evaluates the safety and...
