#zrodlo

With this year’s severe flu season, one statistic is especially chilling. Each year, around 50 percent of all children under 5 years old who die from the flu were previously healthy. Adults who die from the flu, on the other hand, typically had a medical condition that increased their risk of mortality. A new study offers new insights as to why healthy children are much more vulnerable. It also opens new opportunities for treatment.

#zrodlo

The first ever long-term study of patterns of social contact in Hong Kong will improve our knowledge of the growth of epidemics. Hong Kong was where SARS emerged in 2002-2003. The study looked at the number and type of social encounters made by 1,450 residents. This is affected by age but 'supermixers' are not necessarily more likely to contract or spread disease.

ID'ing features of flu virus genome may help target surveillance for pandemic flu

Added: 31.01.2018 13:33 | 0 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

Researchers have identified features of the influenza virus genome that affect how well the virus multiplies. These features are similar but not identical across viral strains. It's possible that the extent of similarity between strains influences whether two flu viruses can mix their genetic material to make a hybrid virus with the potential to explode into pandemic flu.

People with higher levels of antibodies against the stem portion of the influenza virus hemagglutinin (HA) protein have less viral shedding when they get the flu, but don't have fewer or less severe signs of illness, according to a new study. This study is the first of its kind to evaluate pre-existing levels of these antibodies as a predictor of protection against influenza. The findings could have implications for flu vaccine development.
