Evolutionary interactions between haemagglutinin and neuraminidase in avian influenza

Background: Reassortment between the RNA segments encoding haemagglutinin (HA) and neuraminidase (NA), the major antigenic influenza proteins, produces viruses with novel HA and NA subtype combinations and has preceded the emergence of pandemic...

China Research Report on Avian Influenza Vaccine Industry 2014-2018 - Market size, shares, trend, growth, research and statistics

Many countries choose to kill all infected poultry to control avian influenza, instead of immunizations. The total number of poultry exceeds 10 billion in China. Epidemic diseases, which are difficult to control, will result in huge losses. Therefore, it is quite necessary to immunize the poultry with avian influenza vaccines.

Influenza: Cellular proteins go viral | Nature Communications | Nature Publishing Group

Viral particles produced in different species are composed of different proteins despite the viruses being genetically identical, reports a study published online in Nature Communications. The study identifies a set of cellular proteins that are consistently incorporated from the host into influenza viral particles and highlights the ability of flu viruses to possess distinct, host-dependent properties.

BMC Infectious Diseases | Abstract | The evolution of pandemic influenza: evidence from India, 1918-19

The 1918-19 'Spanish' Influenza was the most devastating pandemic in recent history, with estimates of global mortality ranging from 20 to 50 million. The focal point of the pandemic was India, with an estimated death toll of between 10 and 20 million. We will characterize the pattern of spread, mortality, and evolution of the 1918 influenza across India using spatial or temporal data.

Serological evidence of H7, H5 and H9 avian influenza virus co-infection among herons in a city park in Jiangxi, China : Scientific Reports : Nature Publishing Group

Extensive surveillance of influenza A viruses in different avian species is critical for understanding its transmission. Here, a breeding colony of Little Egrets and Black-crowned Night Herons was monitored both serologically and virologically in a city park of Jiangxi in 2009. A portion of herons had antibodies against H7 (52%), H5 (55%) and H9 (6%) subtype avian influenza virus (AIV) in egg yolk samples, and 45% had antibodies against different AIV serotypes (H5, H7 or H9) simultaneously. Greater numbers of samples with anti-AIV H5N1 recombination-4 (Re-4, clade 7) antibodies were measured compared with those containing anti-H5N1 Re-1 (clade 0) and Re-5 (clade 2.3.4) antibodies. Eight strains of H5 and 9 strains of H9 were isolated from poultry of nearby markets. These results indicate wild birds are at risk from infection and co-infection with H7, H5, and H9 subtypes. Investigation of wild bird infection might provide an early warning sign of potential novel AIVs circulating in the nearby poultry industry and even in human society.
