Swine influenza virus: zoonotic potential and vaccination strategies for the control of avian and swine influenzas.

Abstract

Influenza viruses are able to infect humans, swine, and avian species, and swine have long been considered a potential source of new influenza viruses that can infect humans. Swine have receptors to which both avian and mammalian influenza viruses bind, which increases the potential for viruses to exchange genetic sequences and produce new reassortant… (More)
