After the emergence and spread of pandemic H1N1 viruses in 2009, antigenic epitopes recognized by neutralizing antibodies against the hemagglutinin of influenza A/Moscow/01/09(H1N1)pdm09 viruses were studied.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Voprosy virusologii
We studied the incidence, morbidity and mortality of all patients presenting in our teaching hospital with proven influenza virus and/or respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection during the influenz...
Naproxen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that has previously been shown to exert antiviral activity against influenza A virus by inhibiting nucleoprotein (NP) binding to RNA. Here, we show t...
After serial passage of a waterfowl-origin H3N2 subtype avian influenza virus in BALB/c mice, we obtained H3N2 mouse-adapted variants and identified eight amino acid substitutions in five viral protei...
Influenza C virus has been largely neglected, compared to influenza A orB viruses, and is not routinely tested in clinical practices. However, several studies have indicated that influenza C virus cau...
Influenza causes a substantial burden worldwide, and current seasonal influenza vaccine has suboptimal effectiveness. To develop better, more broadly protective vaccines, a more thorough understanding...
More information is needed on how children fight off influenza virus, as they are at greater risk for developing severe influenza infection and tend to have weaker responses to influenza v...
The purpose of this study is to determine the immunogenicity and safety of CSL Limited's Influenza Virus Vaccine compared to a US licensed comparator Influenza Virus Vaccine in a pediatric...
Influenza virus infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality. The limited existing knowledge about the impact of influenza in immunocompromised patients suggests that they are a...
Seasonal influenza virus causes an estimated 0.3-0.6 million deaths per year. Avian influenza virus H5N1, H7N9 and H5N6 has fatality rate of over 30%. Swine influenza viruses from pigs hav...
The purpose of this research is to demonstrate immunologic equivalence of three consecutive production lots of the subunit influenza vaccine compared to egg-derived inactivated influenza v...
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.
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.
A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS with the surface proteins hemagglutinin 7 and neuraminidase 9. This avian origin virus was first identified in humans in 2013.
A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS that is highly virulent in poultry and wild birds, but shows varying degrees of pathogenicity in mice. The H5N8 virus subtype has a polybasic amino acid motif at the HA cleavage site which explains its pathogenicity in birds, and expresses surface proteins HEMAGGLUTININ 5 and NEURAMINIDASE 8 which are typical of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza viruses.
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.
Swine Flu - H1N1 influenza - H7N9
Swine flu is the common name given to a relatively new strain of influenza (flu) that caused a flu pandemic in 2009-2010. It is also referred to as H1N1 influenza (because it is the H1N1 strain of virus). The H1N1 flu virus will be one of the main vi...
Influenza or 'flu' is a respiratory illness associated with infection by influenza virus. Symptoms frequently include headache, fever, cough, sore throat, aching muscles and joints. There is a wide spectrum of severity of illness ranging from min...
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
