Pandemic influenza A (H1N1) 2009 in the English- and Dutch-speaking Caribbean: an epidemiological overview.
Post pandemic surveillance for respiratory illnesses continues to be enhanced in order to give a better understanding of seasonality and changing trends in respiratory illnesses and their aetiologic agents.
Evaluation of intervention strategies in schools including ventilation for influenza transmission control
Among different school-based interventions, increasing ventilation rate together with household isolation could be as effective as school closure as well as engineering control methods, which were evaluated in this study.
Pandemic influenza A(H1N1) outbreak among a group of medical students who traveled to the Dominican Republic.
An outbreak of influenza among medical students who traveled from Spain to the Dominican Republic in June 2009 is described, reporting a high attack rate among a group of traveling medical students but a much lower secondary attack rates among their contacts after return from the trip.

The Influenza Pandemic of 2009
An overview of influenza infection since 1847 and the advent of influenza vaccination since 1944 is provided and immediate identification of impending epidemic and pandemic strains, as well as sustained vigilance and collaboration, demonstrate continued success in combating influenza.

Oligonucleotide and peptide map analysis of the new prototype strain (A/Cal/10/78) suggested that it arose by recombination, but it appears that only the HA, NA, M, and NS genes of this virus are derived from the earlier H1N1 viruses and that the P1, P2, P3, and NP genes most likely originate from an H3N2 parent.
The Russian flu. Its history and implications for this year's influenza season.
From November 1977 through mid-January 1978 the population younger than 25 years in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics experienced a widespread epidemic of mild influenza (Russian flu) caused by
Enhanced virulence of influenza A viruses with the haemagglutinin of the 1918 pandemic virus
It is demonstrated that the HA of the 1918 virus confers enhanced pathogenicity in mice to recent human viruses that are otherwise non-pathogenic in this host.
