Here, the author would like to discuss on swine fl u virus, a novel H1N1 infl uenza virus that causes worldwide emerging viral infection at present. As a viral infection, the induction of DNA damage might be expected in the case of swine fl u. Indeed, several viruses can cause DNA damage and this might lead to cell death or cellular abnormalities. In the case of classical H1N1 infl uenza virus, there are some… CONTINUE READING
