All pandemic A(H1N1) 2009 influenza viruses analysed to date were antigenically and genetically closely related to the vaccine virus A/California/7/2009.

"Respiratory failure progressed despite high-dose oral oseltamivir, nebulised zanamivir (Relenza) and cessation of immunosuppressive medications, but his condition improved with intravenous zanamivir. He subsequently died of non-respiratory complications.

This is the first case....
