Children infected with 'RSV' virus three times as likely to wheeze in early childhood
Young children who wheeze are three times as likely to be infected with RSV, a common respiratory virus and only half as likely to have influenza virus as children with a cold but no wheeze, suggests research in the Archives of Disease in Childhood. The evidence shows that wheezing affects around one in every two children up to the age of 6 years, but it has been thought that infection with... View News Article (2002-08-20)

MIT finds key to avian flu in humans
MIT researchers have uncovered a critical difference between flu viruses that infect birds and humans, a discovery that could help scientists monitor the evolution of avian flu strains and aid in the development of vaccines against a deadly flu pandemic. View News Article (2008-01-07)

Human nose too cold for bird flu, says new study
Avian influenza viruses do not thrive in humans because the temperature inside a person's nose is too low, according to research published today in the journal PLoS Pathogens. View News Article (2009-05-15)

Why aren't pregnant women getting flu vaccine?
Both mother and fetus are at increased risk for complications of flu infection during pregnancy. And prenatal care providers say they're advising women to get the flu vaccine, in line with recommendations from various organizations. But many pregnant women don't understand the importance of this advice-and don't get the vaccine.  View News Article (2014-08-19)

The duck genome provides new insight into fighting bird flu
The duck genome consortium, consisted of scientists from China Agricultural University, BGI, University of Edinburgh and other institutes has completed the genome sequencing and analysis of the duck (Anas platyrhynchos), one principal natural host of influenza A viruses. View News Article (2013-06-10)
