Influenza 101

3036729806_47d038324b_mSoon after the new influenza H1N1 strain emerged in April 2009, I began a series of blog posts on basic aspects of influenza virus replication and pathogenesis. The goal of this series is to provide information that will allow everyone to better understand the events surrounding emergence and spread of the new pandemic strain.

Unfortunately blog posts tend to become invisible after a certain period of time, which does not befit educational material. Therefore I have made a list of these articles, with links, to make it easier for everyone to take Influenza 101. As new basic information on influenza is added to the blog, it will appear on the Influenza 101 page.

You can find Influenza 101 by clicking the tab above the banner image of this blog, or by going to this page.

Class is still in session.

    I sure have appreciated the coursework, and I will continue to track that contact down to read it.

    But those chairs do not look comfortable. I'll keep mine.

    Pig physiology is halfway between bird and human receptors. If you can’t socially distance the farm from birds, quarantine from humans at least or better yet, slaughter. Playing with fire otherwise. Pigs experiencing H5N1 are barely symptomatic.

    Looks like you’ve done your research very well.
