Summary of "100 years since the 1918 influenza pandemic-progress made, yet questions remain. A synopsis of the 4th New Zealand Influenza Symposium, February 2018."

The year 2018 marks 100 years since the 1918 influenza pandemic that caused devastating social and economic destruction worldwide. Despite substantial progress made with influenza research and strategies to control disease outbreaks, influenza continues to be a global public health problem. This paper presents a synopsis of the 4th New Zealand Influenza Symposium hosted by the Immunisation Advisory Centre in February 2018. During this symposium, international and national experts and service providers convened to discuss strategies to mitigate the effects of seasonal influenza and prepare for the next influenza pandemic.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The influenza outbreaks of 1918 to 1919 also known as Spanish flu pandemic. First reported in Haskell County in Kansas in March of 1918 the disease spread throughout the world and may have killed as many as 25 million people.

A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS comprised of the surface proteins hemagglutinin 1 and neuraminidase 1. The H1N1 subtype was responsible for the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918.

A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS comprised of the surface proteins hemagglutinin 3 and neuraminidase 2. The H3N2 subtype was responsible for the Hong Kong flu pandemic of 1968.

A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS comprised of the surface proteins hemagglutinin 2 and neuraminidase 2. The H2N2 subtype was responsible for the Asian flu pandemic of 1957.

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.
