ABSTRACT
The article presents a study that shows the feasibility of using FTA Cards to detect swine influenza virus (SIV). The aim of the study was to confirm whether the cards permit the RNA from SIV subtypes H1N1 to be conserved when stored at room temperature. It shows that acquiring an early diagnosis of swine flu by combining sample submission on FTA Cards and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction detection would raise the responsiveness of diagnostic laboratories.

    Background: National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Delhi, is a national nodal centre for surveillance of pandemic Influenza A (H1N1) in India. The present study was undertaken to see the period of infectivity in positive cases undergoing antiviral therapy. Objective: To assess the duration...

    To determine if fatal infections caused by different highly virulent influenza A viruses share the same pathogenesis, we compared 2 different influenza A virus subtypes, H1N1 and H5N1. The subtypes, which had shown no pathogenicity in laboratory mice, were forced to evolve by serial passaging....
