Analysis of Asian H5N1 avian influenza (AI) virus hemagglutinin (HA) genes shows a common origin, but the virus has evolved into at least three major clades (clades 0, 1, and 2) over the last 13 years. Previous reports of Vietnam viruses have documented predominantly clade 1 viruses. Unexpectedly, 19 viruses from northern Vietnam isolated in December 2005 fell into clade 2. These viruses further clustered into two distinct sublineages. Representative viruses from each sublineage were chosen for… CONTINUE READING
