In April 2009, a new variant of influenza A virus, subtype H1N1v emerged in Mexico and spread all over the world producing the H1N1 pandemic in mankind after 1918–1920 and 1978/1979. Obviously there was no herd immunity against this new virus variant. Mainly young people, but less elderly were affected and presented severe and even lethal courses of disease. Since virus-specific antibodies are commonly regarded as markers of partial or complete immunoprotection, we performed antibody… CONTINUE READING
