Swine influenza (SI) is a respiratory disease of pigs caused by type A influenza that regularly causes pandemics. SI viruses do not normally infect humans; however, human infections with SI do occur, and cases of human-to-human spread of swine flu viruses have been documented. Swine influenza also called as swine flu, hog flu, and pig flu that refers to influenza is caused by those strains of influenza virus, called SI virus (SIV), that usually infect pigs endemically. As of 2009, these strains… Expand
Serological study of influenza viruses in veterinarians working with swine in Mexico
The findings suggest that, between the onset of the 2009 pandemic and July 2011, the Mexican veterinarians working in the swine industry did not have immunity to the pH1N1 virus; hence, they would have been at risk for infection with this virus if this subtype had been circulating in swine in Mexico prior to 2011.

H1N1 Influenza Virus in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis: A Literature Review Examining Both Disease Entities and Their Association in Light of the 2009 Pandemic
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) that is challenging the health sector and negatively impacting the global economy takes us back to the 2009 influenza A (H1N1) virus pandemic that brought the worldExpand
The new discoveries and technologies are day by day progressing, on the same time new different diseases also increasing in the world. The microbes are one of the disease causing factors for humanExpand
Reducing Influenza Virus Infection through shRNA- Targeting TMPRSS2 Protease
To better understand the role of TMPRSS2 for avian, human and swine influenza virus infection, a lentivirus was constructed containing a doxycycline-inducible small hairpin ribonucleic acid (shRNA) to inhibit the TMPR SS2 gene via RNA interference (RNAi). Expand
Studies on H1N1 vaccine-induced monoamines alternations and oxidative stress on brain of adult mice
Over the past decade illness outbreaks have posed a serious threat to human life and well-being. The 2009 outbreak H1N1/A influenza virus also was expected to disproportionately affect healthy youngExpand

The differences between avian and human susceptibilities to the newer avian influenzavirus strains are explained and the potential new target sites for antiviral drugs are detailed. Expand
Prevention and control of influenza. Recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).
This report updates the 2001 recommendations by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices regarding the use of influenza vaccine and antiviral agents with new or updated information regarding 1) the timing of influenza vaccination by risk group; 2) influenza vaccine for children aged 6-23 months; 3) the 2002-2003 trivalent vaccine virus strains.

The biology of influenza viruses.
The influenza virus genome and function of its viral proteins enable antigenic drift and antigenic shift, which result in viruses able to evade the long-term adaptive immune responses in many hosts. Expand
