Recurrent epidemics of influenza are due to the frequent emergence of antigenic variants. With co-circulation of two influenza A subtypes and two antigenically distinct lineages of B viruses, genetic reassortment also has an important role in antigenic drift, as illustrated by recent changes in both A and B viruses. The H1N2 subtype viruses, which emerged during 2001, possessed a H1 HA similar to those of contemporary A/New Caledonia/20/99 (H1N1)-like viruses and seven genes closely related to… CONTINUE READING
