Abstract In April 2009, a novel influenza A subtype H1N1 triple reassortant virus (novel H1N1 2009), composed of genes from swine, avian, and human influenza A viruses, emerged in humans in the United States and Mexico and spread person-to-person around the world to become the first influenza pandemic of the 21st century. The virus is believed to have emerged from a reassortment event involving a swine virus some time in the past 10 to 20 years, but pigs, pork, and pork products have not been…

A brief overview on swine flu is presented highlighting the characteristics of the causative virus, the disease and its public health consequences, advances made in its diagnosis, vaccine and control to be adapted in the wake of an outbreak.
Phylogenetic Analysis of a Swine Influenza A(H3N2) Virus Isolated in Korea in 2012
The isolation and phylogenetic study of a swine IAV, A/swine/Korea/PL01/2012 (swPL01, H3N2 subtype), indicated that the swPL01 virus was similar to the North American triple-reassortant swine strains and that the HA gene of the sw PL 01 virus was categorized into swine H3 cluster IV.

Human Influenza Virus Infections
Current knowledge on the molecular basis of influenza infection and disease progression, the key players in pathogenesis driving severe disease and progression to lung failure, as well as available and envisioned prevention and treatment strategies against influenza virus infection are summarized.
Evolution of Novel Reassortant A/H3N2 Influenza Viruses in North American Swine and Humans, 2009–2011
The identification of this N2 variant may have implications for influenza vaccine design and the potential pandemic threat of H3N2v to human age groups with differing levels of prior exposure and immunity.
DNA Vaccination Elicits Protective Immune Responses against Pandemic and Classic Swine Influenza Viruses in Pigs
It is reported that DNA vaccination elicits robust serum antibody and cellular responses after three immunizations and confers significant protection against influenza virus challenge and should be considered for development as a practical alternative for vaccine administration.

Over the past few decades a large number of new and emerging infectious diseases have been recognised in humans, partly because of improved diagnostic technologies and increased awareness and also,
Acute inflammation and influenza: Innovative nanoparticle vaccination studies in a pig model
According to the reports of World Health Organization (WHO), around three to five million people are infected with seasonal influenza annually and approximately 250,000 to 500,000 people die


Origins and evolutionary genomics of the 2009 swine-origin H1N1 influenza A epidemic
It is shown that the new swine-origin influenza A (H1N1) virus emerged in Mexico and the United States was derived from several viruses circulating in swine, and that the initial transmission to humans occurred several months before recognition of the outbreak.
Influenza A(H1N1) and pandemic preparedness under the rule of international law.
Although the response to H1N1 has been strong, the World Health Organization and US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention need more authority and resources to deal with pandemic threats under the rule of international law.
Sustaining Global Surveillance and Response to Emerging Zoonotic Diseases
This report calls for the United States to take the lead, working with global health organizations, to establish a global zoonotic disease surveillance system that better integrates the human and animal health sectors for improved early detection and response.
Evolution of Swine H3N2 Influenza Viruses in the United States
Analysis of the 1999 swine H3N2 isolates showed that the internal gene complex of the triple-reassortant viruses was associated with three recent phylogenetically distinct human-like hemagglutinin (HA) molecules, which supports continued surveillance of U.S. swine populations for influenza virus activity.
Identification of H2N3 influenza A viruses from swine in the United States
The isolate and characterize genetically similar avian/swine virus reassortant H2N3 influenza A viruses isolated from diseased swine from two farms in the United States suggest that the H2n3 virus has undergone some adaptation to the mammalian host and that their spread should be very closely monitored.
Genetic Evolution of Swine Influenza A (H3N2) Viruses in China from 1970 to 2006
The coexistence of wholly human-like and reassortant viruses provides further evidence that pigs serve as intermediate hosts, or mixing vessels, and emphasizes the importance of reinforcing swine influenza virus surveillance in China.

A notable feature of these H9N2 viruses is that the six genes encoding the internal components of the virus are similar to those of the 1997 H5N1 human and avian isolates, which highlights the potential for the emergence of a novel human pathogen.
Characterization of a newly emerged genetic cluster of H1N1 and H1N2 swine influenza virus in the United States
It is indicated that the human-like H1 SIV can efficiently replicate and transmit in the swine host and now co-circulates with contemporary SIVs as a distinct genetic cluster of H1SIV.
Avian and swine influenza viruses: our current understanding of the zoonotic risk.
The major conclusion is that cross-species transmission of influenza viruses per se is insufficient to start a human influenza pandemic and that animal influenza viruses must undergo dramatic but largely unknown genetic changes to become established in the human population.
