A critical step in producing the annual inactivated influenza vaccine is the development of high yield (hy) seed viruses by reassortment for improved growth in ovoalthough hy reassortants for type a influenza viruses have been developed for many years, hy b influenza reassortant virus development for vaccine production has proven difficult. There are four types of influenza viruses: a, b, c and d human influenza a and b viruses cause seasonal epidemics of disease almost every winter in the united states the emergence of a new and very different influenza a virus to infect people can cause an influenza pandemic.
Results we recruited 122 index patients and 320 household contacts, of which 67 became secondary household cases among all 189 influenza cases, 12 were infected with seasonal/prepandemic influenza a(h1n1), 19 with a(h3n2), 60 with influenza b, and 98 with a(h1n1)pdm09.

There are 4 types of seasonal influenza viruses, types a, b, c and d influenza a and b viruses circulate and cause seasonal epidemics of disease influenza a viruses are further classified into subtypes according to the combinations of the hemagglutinin (ha) and the neuraminidase (na), the proteins on the surface of the virus. Four influenza type b viruses isolated in russia during periods of relatively low (1987–8) or high (1990–1) influenza b activity were characterized antigenically using a microneutralization assay. 1 fukuoka igaku zasshi 2015 aug106(8):231-9 [analysis of the neuraminidase amino acid sequences of influenza a/h1n1pdm09, a/h3n2, and b viruses isolated from influenza patients in the 2013/14 japanese influenza season. Influenza type b is one of three types of flu virus, the other two being type a and type c of the three, types a and b cause seasonal flu and can lead to epidemics between november and april, the time period known as flu season, is when most flu epidemics occur, according to nemours foundation.

Different tests can detect 1) only influenza a viruses 2) both influenza a and b viruses, but not distinguish between the two types or 3) both influenza a and b viruses and distinguish between the two. Qualitative and quantitative analyses of virtually all subtypes of influenza a and b viral neuraminidases using antibodies targeting the universally conserved sequences gravel c(1), li c, wang j, hashem am, jaentschke b, xu kw, lorbetskie b, gingras g, aubin y, van domselaar g, girard m, he r, li x. A broadly protective therapeutic antibody against influenza b virus with two mechanisms of action chai et al isolated a human monoclonal antibody that neutralizes ibvs in vitro and protects mice against lethal challenge. Who recommendations on the use of rapid testing for influenza diagnosis july 2005 – 2 – acceptable respiratory specimens most tests can be used on a variety of respiratory specimen types, however not all specimen.
The analysis included 21,186 influenza a hospitalizations and 3,579 linked to influenza b influenza a viruses predominated over all of the flu seasons, especially during the 2009 h1n1 pandemic no significant differences were seen in the proportion of hospitalizations with an intensive care unit (icu) admission by virus type. Influenza vaccine composition can be trivalent, protecting against 3 different influenza viruses (2 influenza subtype a and 1 type influenza b), or quadrivalent, with protection against 4 different influenza viruses (2 influenza subtype a and 2influenza type b strains. Influenza is caused by three types of rna viruses called influenza types a, b and c (considered different genera), which all belong to the family orthomyxoviridae the disease, colloquially called. Influenza b virus reinfection in japanese children was studied epidemi-ologically during 1979–91 and virologically during 1985–91 during this investigation, there were four epidemics caused by influenza b viruses, each of which accompanied antigenic drift.
