    Background. Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and influenza virus are common causes of infantile lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI). It is widely believed that both viral replication and inappropriately enhanced immune responses contribute to disease severity. In infants, RSV LRTI is known...

    A definition of the term "immune response" is presented. It refers to a response of the body to antigens, especially microorganisms or viruses that cause disease. It involves the action of lymphocytes in deactivating foreign antigens, often by stimulating the production of antibodies.

    The pandemic influenza virus (2009 H1N1) was recently introduced into the human population. The hemagglutinin (HA) gene of 2009 H1N1 is derived from ''classical swine H1N1'' virus, which likely shares a common ancestor with the human H1N1 virus that caused the pandemic in 1918, whose descendant...
