There often appears to be an epidemiologic association between human and animal influenza outbreaks. Serologic studies have demonstrated that the influenza viruses of avian, swine, and equine species may be closely related to the influenza viruses of man. Isolation of viruses common to man and animals have been claimed. It appears certain that human and animal influenza viruses do sometimes share common antigens. The exact relationship between human and animal influenza is not yet understood… Expand
Rates and effectiveness of antiviral use among hospitalized influenza patients
TLDR
The rates and effectiveness of antiviral use among hospitalized influenza patients are outlined and some important considerations regarding controversial issues and future perspectives on antiviralUse for the management of hospitalized flu patients are discussed. Expand
Role of lipid peroxidation, glutathione and antioxidant enzymes in H1N1 Influenza.
TLDR
The present study suggests that use of Tamiflu (oseltamivir) or Relenza with supplementation of antioxidants can recovers H1N1 influenza earlier than only antiviral drugs therapy by increasing the levels of NK cells and help to protect H 1N1 viral infection. Expand
Alternative approaches to antiviral treatments: focusing on glycosylation as a target for antiviral therapy
TLDR
A mini‐review article looks at recent advances in both glycosylation features and their potential to provide a new arsenal of antiviral therapeutics for AIDS, hepatitis C and influenza. Expand
Oligonucleotide Motifs That Disappear during the Evolution of Influenza Virus in Humans Increase Alpha Interferon Secretion by Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cells
TLDR
Direct evidence is found that CpG RNA motifs in a U-rich context control pDC activation and IFN-α-driven activation of NK cells, likely through TLR7, which provides a potential explanation for the loss of C pG motifs from avian influenza viruses as they adapt to mammalian hosts. Expand

THE SUSCEPTIBILITY OF SWINE TO THE VIRUS OF HUMAN INFLUENZA
TLDR
The human influenza virus recovered after 5 serial transfers in swine was immunologically the same as that with which the experiments were begun. Expand
Studies on the content of antibodies for equine influenza viruses in human sera.
TLDR
The results suggest that infection with a virus resembling the A/Equi 2 1963 strain occurred some 7-10 years after the 1889-90 influenza pandemic; this virus was probably a mutant of the influenza A2 virus, which may have been the cause of the 89-90 pandemic. Expand

TLDR
This paper presents the demonstration that influenza virus, or a part of it, has an enzyme-like action upon a carbohydrate-containing protein; this protein is present in serum. Expand

TLDR
The principal features of the pathology of swine influenza are an exudative bronchitis accompanied by marked damage of the bronchial epithelium and its cilia, a peribronchial round cell infiltration, and massive pulmonary atelectasis. Expand
