The most widely quoted date for the beginning of the recorded history of avian influenza (AI) is 1878, when researchers first differentiated a disease of poultry (initially known as fowl plague but later renamed highly pathogenic avian influenza) from other diseases with high mortality rates. Current evidence indicates that highly pathogenic AI (HPAI) viruses arise through mutation after low pathogenicity AI viruses of H5 or H7 subtype are introduced into poultry. Between 1877 and 1958, a… 
Avian infuenza: global assessment of potential pandemic of the twenty first century.
TLDR
The primary goal of this review is to highlight the global situation of HPAI and provide baseline information to show the potential pandemic nature of the virus, so that control and prevention strategies can be improved.
The transmission of H5 and H7 low pathogenic avian influenza viruses
TLDR
It can be suggested that the risk of a wild bird originated LPNAIV becoming established in poultry is only realistic if the virus itself has a high infectious potential to poultry.
A brief history of bird flu
TLDR
The genesis of novel influenza A virus strains by reassortment and evolution in wild and domestic bird populations, as well as the role of wild bird migration in their long-range spread are described.
Mapping the risk of avian influenza in wild birds in the US
TLDR
22 species of song birds and perching birds (order Passeriformes) are influenza reservoirs in the contiguous US and the regression model identifies the Great Plains and the Pacific Northwest as high-risk areas for AIV.
Pathobiological Origins and Evolutionary History of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Viruses.
TLDR
Active surveillance and molecular detection and characterization efforts will provide the best opportunity for early detection and eradication from domestic birds.
Molecular Surveillance of Avian Influenza in Live Bird Market of Qom City in Iran
TLDR
Live Bird Markets (LBM) are hypothesized to be a missing link in the epidemiology of AIV and it is important that the LBMs be routinely monitored for AIV.
Genetic changes that accompanied shifts of low pathogenic avian influenza viruses toward higher pathogenicity in poultry
TLDR
The genetic changes which resulted in the transformation of LPAIV to HPAIV under natural conditions are summarized and linked to virulence, pathogenesis, and early adaptation of AIV.
The emergence and diversification of panzootic H5N1 influenza viruses.
TLDR
A summary of the genesis, molecular epidemiology and evolution of this H5N1 lineage, particularly the factors that have contributed to the continued diversification and ecological success of H4N1 viruses, with particular reference to the poultry production systems they have emerged from is provided.
Prevalence and control of H7 avian influenza viruses in birds and humans
TLDR
This review summarizes the emergence of avian influenza virus H7 subtypes in birds and humans, and the possibilities of its control in poultry.
Reassortment of NS Segments Modifies Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Virus Interaction with Avian Hosts and Host Cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that single reassortment of an H5-type NS into an H7-type HPAIV significantly changed virus replication abilities and influenced the avian host cell response without prior adaptation.

Origin and evolution of highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza in Asia
TLDR
The H5N1 viruses have reportedly been eliminated from three of the nine countries that reported disease in 2003/04, but they could be extremely difficult to eradicate from the remaining countries, owing to the existence of populations and, possibly, production and marketing sectors, in which apparently normal birds harbour the viruses.
Epidemiology and ecology of highly pathogenic avian influenza with particular emphasis on South East Asia.
TLDR
Although there are some questions that remain unanswered regarding the origins of the 2004 outbreaks, the current understanding of the ecology and epidemiology of the disease should lead to the development of adapted targeted surveillance studies and control strategies.

Should We Change the Definition of Avian Influenza for Eradication Purposes?
TLDR
The accumulating evidence is that HPAI viruses arise from low-pathogenicity avian influenza (LPAI) H5 or H7 viruses infecting chickens and turkeys after spread from free-living birds, which may require redefining statutory AI.

TLDR
A reconsideration of current European legislation and a reorganization of the poultry industry are suggested to prevent the occurrence of similar situations in countries of the European Union.
Avian influenza: recent developments
TLDR
The human health implications have now gained importance, both for illness and fatalities that have occurred following natural infection with avian viruses, and for the potential of generating a reassortant virus that could give rise to the next human influenza pandemic.
Avian influenza A subtype H9N2 in poultry in Pakistan
TLDR
The poultry industry of Pakistan is still at a developmental stage, and about 80% of the breeding stocks are reared in the northern hilly areas of the country, where the ambient temperatures range from 2 to 25°C, compared with the high summer temperature ranges of 35 to 45°C.

TLDR
There have been regular reports of natural infections of humans with avian influenza viruses: in England in 1996 (H7N7), Hong Kong 1997 (H5N1), 1999 (H9N2), and 2003 (H3N2) and Thailand 2004 (H 5N1); the H5N 1 virus is alarming because 51 of the 80 people confirmed as infected since 1997 have died.
Recombination Resulting in Virulence Shift in Avian Influenza Outbreak, Chile
TLDR
Sequence analysis of all eight genes of the LPAI virus and the HPAI viruses showed minor differences between the viruses except at the hemagglutinin (HA) cleavage site, which indicates a virulence shift.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that H5N1 influenza viruses, isolated from apparently healthy domestic ducks in mainland China from 1999 through 2002, were becoming progressively more pathogenic for mammals, and a hypothesis explaining the mechanism is presented.
