Scientific Research Center for Animal Health (CReSA) have developed a study to determine the extent of human H1N1 virus in pigs previously infected with influenza virus circulating virus. With that, the study published in the journal Virus Research, has been able to answer important questions that threatened the pig sector in Europe.
The prestigious journal Virus Research has recently published an article by the CReSA and showing a pig some immunity to the virus A (H1N1) pandemic of 2009 if you have previously been infected with other influenza viruses circulating in the herds in Europe in this case, the H1N1.
What will happen in the Spanish and European farms, which have a high prevalence of swine flu, when you get a surge of human H1N1 pandemic virus? This is the question which set out international agencies faced with a threat of great potential and that this research has answered.
With different groups of pigs, the authors tested whether a swine influenza infection generates H1N1 some immunity to subsequent infection of H1N1 human pandemic virus. The result was very mild pulmonary lesions and an increase of specific antibodies in animals that received both viruses. It can be concluded cross-protective effect among strains.
This study has allowed us a little more the pandemic virus and how it may affect the pig sector.
