Summary of "Prognostic Implications of Influenza Virus Infection in a Cardiac Intensive Care Unit: Potential Impact of a Screening Program."

Our goal was to determine the presentation and prognosis of influenza in an intensive cardiac care unit and to analyze the impact of an active surveillance program in the diagnosis.

Influenza A Reinfection in Sequential Human Challenge: Implications for Protective Immunity and "Universal" Vaccine Development.

Identification of correlates of protection against human influenza A virus infection is important in development of broadly protective ("universal") influenza vaccines. Certain assumptions underlie cu...

Seasonal influenza outbreaks are associated with increased mortality and hospitalisation rates. Herein we tried to identify predictors of mortality in hospitalised patients with influenza virus infect...

Infections Caused by Influenza Viruses Among Children in Poland During the 2017/18 Epidemic Season.

Influenza is an infectious disease that is a threat to both children and adults. The most effective way to prevent infections among children is seasonal vaccination in every epidemic season, which is ...

Influenza virus-specific CD4+ and CD8+ T cell-mediated immunity induced by infection and vaccination.

Influenza A and B virus infections are a major cause of respiratory disease in humans and are responsible for substantial morbidity and mortality worldwide. Vaccination against influenza mainly aims a...

A peptide derived from phosphoinositide 3-kinase inhibits endocytosis and influenza virus infection.

Endocytosis mediates the internalization and ingestion of a variety of endogenous or exogenous substances, including virus particles, under the control of intracellular signaling pathways. We have pre...

Biomarkers for the Prognosis of Influenza in Children

Context: Seasonal influenza affects 2.5 to 3 million people each year in France, resulting in 1500 to 2000 severe cases seen in intensive care units. The severity of influenza is related t...

Development of Childhood Anti-influenza Immunity

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

The hospital unit in which patients with acute cardiac disorders receive intensive care.

Infection of domestic and wild fowl and other BIRDS with INFLUENZA A VIRUS. Avian influenza usually does not sicken birds, but can be highly pathogenic and fatal in domestic POULTRY.

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.

Hospital units providing continuous surveillance and care to acutely ill infants and children. Neonates are excluded since INTENSIVE CARE UNITS, NEONATAL is available.
