Swine Flu Virus Pandemic
- India - National disaster and epidemic preparedness - Abstract: History provides us several illustrations where epidemic outbreaks have led to biological disasters. Accidental or deliberate release of harmful micro-organisms can also lead to biological disasters. With the advent of bio-terrorism, there is a growing realisation that biological agents can also be used as weapons of mass destruction. The spread of Spanish Influenza of 1917-18, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) / Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), Swine Flu (H1N1), Avian Influenza (H5N1), Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), dengue, chikunguniya, Ebola outbreak in West Africa and the recent Zika outbreak in several countries tested the capacities of the public health delivery system in several countries.

- Human temperatures for syndromic surveillance in the emergency department: data from the autumn wave of the 2009 swine flu (H1N1) pandemic and a seasonal influenza outbreak - The emergency department (ED) increasingly acts as a gateway to the evaluation and treatment of acute illnesses. Consequently, it has also become a key testing ground for systems that monitor and identify outb... (Source: BMC Emergency Medicine)

- Susceptibility of swine to H5 and H7 low pathogenic avian influenza viruses - ConclusionsLPAI strains from various bird populations within the United States are capable of infecting pigs. Although adaptability and transmission of individual strains seem unlikely, the subclinical nature of the infections demonstrates the need to improve sampling and testing methods to more accurately measure incidence of LPAI virus infection in pigs, and their potential role in human‐zoonotic LPAI virus dynamics.This article is protected by copyright.

- Spillback transmission of European H1N1 avian-like swine influenza viruses to turkeys: A strain-dependent possibility? - Publication date: Available online 27 February 2016 Source:Veterinary Microbiology Author(s): Francesco Bonfante, Alice Fusaro, Luca Tassoni, Livia Victoria Patrono, Milani Adelaide, Silvia Maniero, Annalisa Salviato, Calogero Terregino In 1979, an avian influenza virus of the H1N1 subtype began to circulate in European swine herds, rapidly replacing classical swine H1N1 viruses. Spill-back transmissions to turkeys were recorded occasionally, but they might have been underreported due to the asymptomatic nature of the infection and the lack of specific surveillance. In our study, we evaluated the infectivity and transmissibility in turkeys of seven strains of H1N1 avian-like swine viruses isolated from 1979 to 2006, and compared them with their closest progenitor A/duck/Bavaria/1...
- Swine flu fibrosis: Regressive or progressive? - Nishtha Singh, Sheetu Singh, Bharat Bhushan Sharma, Virendra SinghLung India 2016 33(2):219-221Swine flu influenza had spread the world over in 2009. The main pathology was bilateral pneumonia. Majority of these cases recovered from pneumonia fully. Though in some cases, pulmonary fibrosis was reported as a sequel. However, long-term progression of such pulmonary fibrosis is uncertain. We are hereby reporting two cases of swine flu that showed residual pulmonary fibrosis. The clinical and laboratory parameters were also recorded. In both the cases, radiological shadows and spirometric values did not show deterioration. We conclude that swine flu pulmonary fibrosis is not a progressive condition. (Source: Lung India)
- [Newsdesk] Research brief - Flying pig skins have been linked to influenza deaths in the USA. Not because of a hybrid of swine and bird flu, but the finding that people living in cities with a team in the Super Bowl have an increased risk of death from influenza. Researchers looked at county-level statistics between 1974 and 2009 and saw an average 18% increase in influenza deaths in people older than 65 years. The suspected reason behind the increased risk is that people host get-togethers to watch the games, sneezing, coughing, and sharing chips and dips with more people than they usually would.

- Genetic characterization of an adapted pandemic 2009 H1N1 influenza virus that reveals improved replication rates in human lung epithelial cells. - Authors: Wörmann X, Lesch M, Welke RW, Okonechnikov K, Abdurishid M, Sieben C, Geissner A, Brinkmann V, Kastner M, Karner A, Zhu R, Hinterdorfer P, Anish C, Seeberger PH, Herrmann A, Meyer TF, Karlas A Abstract The 2009 influenza pandemic originated from a swine-origin H1N1 virus, which, although less pathogenic than anticipated, may acquire additional virulence-associated mutations in the future. To estimate the potential risk, we sequentially passaged the isolate A/Hamburg/04/2009 in A549 human lung epithelial cells. After passage 6, we observed a 100-fold increased replication rate. High-throughput sequencing of viral gene segments identified five dominant mutations, whose contribution to the enhanced growth was analyzed by reverse genetics. The increased replication rate was p...

- Swine alveolar macrophage cell model allows optimal replication of influenza A viruses regardless of their origin. - Authors: Kasloff SB, Weingartl HM Abstract The importance of pigs in interspecies transmission of influenza A viruses has been repeatedly demonstrated over the last century. Eleven influenza A viruses from avian, human and swine hosts were evaluated for replication phenotypes at three physiologically relevant temperatures (41°C, 37°C, 33°C) in an immortalized swine pulmonary alveolar macrophage cell line (IPAM 3D4/31) to determine whether this system would allow for their efficient replication. All isolates replicated well in IPAMs at 37°C while clear distinctions were observed at 41°C and 33°C, correlating to species of origin of the PB2, reflected in distinct amino acid residue profiles rather than in one particular PB2 residue. A strong TNF-α response was induced by some ...

- Co-infection of classic swine H1N1 influenza virus in pigs persistently infected with porcine rubulavirus - In conclusion, the results obtained confirm an increase in the clinical signs of infection, and PorPV was observed to impact the spread of swH1N1 in analysed tissues in the early stage of co-infection, although viral shedding was not enhanced. In the present study, the interaction of swH1N1 infection is demonstrated in pigs persistently infected with PorPV. (Source: Veterinary Microbiology)
