Early in November 1977, several outbreaks of influenza were reported in the far eastern region of the USSR. The epidemic spread rapidly throughout the country affecting mainly people under the age of 20 years. Most of the strains of virus isolated were found to be influenza A subtype H1N1. The serological characterization of the strains is described in this(More)
Analysis of 154 strains isolated in Russia and CIS countries in 1989-1999 showed that influenza virus A(H3N2) caused epidemics and epidemic rises 8 times, circulating together with A(H1N1) and B viruses. Antigenic drift was revealed using polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies. Analysis of antigenic properties of the viruses in the population showed that(More)
In 1986 five avian paramyxovirus (PMV) strains were isolated in embryonated chicken eggs from sick children with influenza. The strains were identified as PMV-2 serotype due to the close antigenic relationships between their HN-proteins and of the reference PMV-2 strains isolated from different birds all over the world. No seroconversion to the isolates was(More)
Four influenza type B viruses isolated in Russia during periods of relatively low (1987-8) or high (1990-1) influenza B activity were characterized antigenically using a microneutralization assay. These isolates were antigenically similar to contemporary reference strains from either of two separate lineages represented by B/Victoria/2/87 and(More)
The serum antibody titre to the nucleoprotein (NP) of the influenza virus recombinant MRC-11 was determined in virus strains A/USSA/5/80 (H3N2), A/Hong Kong/8/64 (H3N2), A/duck/Ukraine/63 (Hav7Neq2) and in a recombinant strain between A/tern/Frunse/334/78(Hav4Nav1) and A/PR/8/34(H0N1) using the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Significant(More)
Influenza A and B viruses isolated from animals and man were studied by solid phase radioimmunoassay (SP RIA) using monoclonal antibodies to the A/Dunedin/4/73 strain nucleoprotein (NP). Only influenza A viruses isolated before 1980 interacted with the monoclonal antibody set used, while strains isolated between 1980 and 1983 failed to do so. It was shown(More)
The comparative examination of the interaction of the influenza A and B viruses and fragments of DNA with the carbon nanotubes--composites of polyaniline (PANI) nanotubes and granules containing Ag and without Ag was performed. The increased absorption of the allantois viruses and DNA was demonstrated in composites with Ag. The influence of temperature in(More)
Schoolchildren of 30 to 34 schools of Novgorod were vaccinated over a three-year period with Russian live cold-adapted attenuated vaccine for children and whole-virus inactivated vaccines and placebo for comparative field study of the vaccines properties and efficacy. In control trials both bi- and trivalent live attenuated vaccines were well tolerated and(More)
A total of 200 influenza A virus strains were studied. Among them there 32 strains of A(H1N1) and 84 strains of A(H3N2) from the 2002-2003 epidemic season and 84 strains of A(H3N2) from the 2003-2004 epidemic season. Most rimantadine-sensitive strains whose infectivity and hemagglutinating activity were found to decrease by the drug given at a concentration(More)
The results of analysis of the peculiarities of the epidemic 2011-2012 development in the areas of 10 cities of Russia obtained by basic laboratories of IEES on the base of D.I. Ivanovsky Research Institute of Virology, Ministry of Public Health and Social Development of Russia, are presented. The increasing ARD morbidity caused by the influenza viruses was(More)
