BackgroundChildren and young adults are more susceptible to pandemic A/H1N1v infection than older people. There are some publications concerning the course of the pandemic influenza among pediatric population but mostly from hospital or from emergency units. There are very few observations of the course of pandemic influenza from primary care settings.ObjectiveThe aim of the study was to describe clinical manifestations of influenza caused by a pandemic strain A/H1N1v among children and… Expand
Relationship of influenza virus infection to associated infections in children who present with influenza-like symptoms
Common respiratory complications of seasonal influenza did not differ in influenza positive compared with influenza negative patients, and determination of influenza status may be an important tool for clinicians to predict the likelihood of complications. Expand

Risk factors and outcomes among children admitted to hospital with pandemic H1N1 influenza
Asthma appears to be a significant risk factor for severe disease, with no clear relation to severity of asthma, and this finding should influence strategies for vaccination and pre-emptive antiviral therapy. Expand
Pandemic Potential of a Strain of Influenza A (H1N1): Early Findings
Transmissibility is substantially higher than that of seasonal flu, and comparable with lower estimates of R0 obtained from previous influenza pandemics, by analyzing the outbreak in Mexico, early data on international spread, and viral genetic diversity, which makes an early assessment of transmissibility and severity.

Emergence of a novel swine-origin influenza A (H1N1) virus in humans.
A novel swine-origin influenza A virus was identified as the cause of outbreaks of febrile respiratory infection ranging from self-limited to severe illness and it is likely that the number of confirmed cases underestimates thenumber of cases that have occurred. Expand
