We provide a brief introduction into the genome organization, life cycle, pathogenicity, and host range of infl uenza A viruses. We also briefl y summarize infl uenza pandemics and currently available measures to control infl uenza virus outbreaks, including vaccines and antiviral compounds to infl uenza viruses. 
Influenza A☆
Abstract The influenza viruses, which contain single-stranded RNA, are classified into three types, A, B, and C and belong to the Orthomyxoviridae family ofExpand

TLDR
Modelling the global transmission of antiviral‐resistant influenza viruses is suggested to be a viable model for influenzaenza and other Respiratory Viruses infection. Expand

Influenza H1N1pdm-specific maternal antibodies offer limited protection against wild-type virus replication and influence influenza vaccination in ferrets
The objective was to study passively acquired influenza H1N1 pandemic (H1N1pdm) maternal antibody kinetics and its impact on subsequent influenza infection and vaccination in ferrets during anExpand
RNA Replicons - A New Approach for Influenza Virus Immunoprophylaxis
TLDR
This review provides an update on the available literature covering influenza virus vaccines based on RNA replicons and the pros and cons of these vaccine strategies will be discussed and future perspectives disclosed. Expand
Antibody responses to porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus, influenza A virus, and Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae and their association with single-nucleotide variants
TLDR
This research presents a novel and scalable approach called “Smart Genetics for Swine Improvement” that aims to improve the quality and quantity of pork products produced in Canada and around the world. Expand
Evasion of natural killer cells by influenza virus
TLDR
Recent advances regarding the understanding of NK cell evasion mechanisms manipulated by the influenza virus to facilitate its rapid replication inside the respiratory epithelial cells are discussed. Expand
Influenza Virus Neuraminidase Structure and Functions
TLDR
The various structural features of NA are investigated, linking these with functional outcomes in viral replication and the contribution of evolving NA activity to viral attachment, entry and release of virions from infected cells, and maintenance of functional balance with the viral hemagglutinin are discussed. Expand
Respiratory virus modulation of host nucleocytoplasmic transport; target for therapeutic intervention?
TLDR
The various ways in which infection by these viruses impacts on the host nucleocytoplasmic transport system are outlined, and examples where inhibition thereof in turn decreases viral replication are outlined. Expand
Evasion of innate and adaptive immune responses by influenza A virus
TLDR
The mammalian innate and adaptive immune mechanisms involved in host defence against viral infection are summarized and strategies by which IAVs avoid, circumvent or subvert these mechanisms are reviewed. Expand

Wild Ducks as Long-Distance Vectors of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Virus (H5N1)
Some duck species are potential long-distance vectors; others are more likely to function as sentinels.
Detection of Respiratory Viruses and Subtype Identification of Influenza A Viruses by GreeneChipResp Oligonucleotide Microarray
TLDR
The establishment and validation of a comprehensive and sensitive microarray system for detection of respiratory viruses and subtyping of influenza viruses in clinical materials is reported on. Expand
Erythrocyte Binding Preference of Avian Influenza H5N1 Viruses
TLDR
It is found that goose erythrocytes confer a greater advantage over other eryththrocyte species in both hemagglutination inhibition test and specific antibody detection test. Expand
Comparative Pathology of Select Agent Influenza A Virus Infections
TLDR
Experimental animals are used to model different aspects of influenza in humans, including uncomplicated influenza, pneumonia, and virus transmission, which may be applied for the development of more effective antiviral drugs and vaccines to protect humans from the threat of these virus infections. Expand
Activation of influenza A viruses by trypsin treatment.
TLDR
The data show that cleavage of HA is not a precondition for virus assembly and hemagglutinating activity, but that it is necessary for infectivity, and are compatible with the hypothesis that, in addition to its role in adsorption, the hemagGLutinin has another function in the infection process and cleavage is required for this function.

Host cell selection of influenza neuraminidase variants: implications for drug resistance monitoring in A(H1N1) viruses.
TLDR
These findings provide evidence that propagation of influenza virus outside its natural host may lead to selection of virus variants with mutations in the NA that affect sensitivity to NAIs and thus poses implications for drug resistance monitoring and diagnostics. Expand

TLDR
Results from analysis of early winter A(H1N1) virus isolates has revealed that a significant proportion, approximately 14% of these European strains, are resistant to oseltamivir (Tamiflu), the most widely used anti-influenza drug, but retain sensitivity to zanamivIR (Relenza) and amantadine/rimanadine.

Vaccination against highly pathogenic avian influenza H5N1 virus in zoos using an adjuvanted inactivated H5N2 vaccine.
TLDR
Data indicate that vaccination should be regarded as a beneficial component of the preventive measures that can be undertaken in zoos to prevent an outbreak of and decrease environmental contamination by HPAI H5N1 virus, while alleviating confinement measures. Expand
Influenza H1N1 A/Solomon Island/3/06 Virus Receptor Binding Specificity Correlates with Virus Pathogenicity, Antigenicity, and Immunogenicity in Ferrets
TLDR
The data emphasize the necessity of thoroughly assessing wild-type influenza viruses for their suitability as reference strains and for carefully selecting the hemagglutinin (HA) antigen for vaccine production during annual influenza vaccine evaluation processes. Expand
Studies on the molecular basis for loss of the ability of recent influenza A (H1N1) virus strains to agglutinate chicken erythrocytes.
TLDR
Using the cDNAs of the HA gene of seven natural isolates obtained from 1977 to 1992, it was found that the expressed HA proteins of influenza A (H1N1) viruses isolated since 1988 had lost the ability to agglutinate CRBC. Expand
