Influenza A Virus − The Ultimate (Re)emerging Pathogen
6 November 2015
organised by SCI − UK.

The traditional view of influenza A viruses has been of viruses with a reservoir host (aquatic ducks) that have occasionally crossed species barriers and become established in mammalian hosts including humans, pigs and horses. However, the extent and nature of interspecies transmissions in recent years has challenged our understanding of influenza A virus ecology. Highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses are emerging with increasing frequency and two different influenza A subtypes have now become established in pet dogs in the US.

How worried should we be? Can we predict where the next major pandemic will come from, and is there anything that can be done to pre-empt it? The complex interactions between virus and host that underlie interspecies transmission - and how understanding these may address some of these questions - will de discussed.
