Fri, 05 Jun 2009 11:05:00 EST H1N1 Flu (Swine Flu) Situation Summary
It's uncertain at this time how serious or severe this novel H1N1 virus will be in terms of how many people infected will develop serious complications or die or how this new virus may affect the U.S. during its upcoming influenza season in the fall and winter. Because this is a new virus, most people will have little or no immunity against it, and illness may be more severe and widespread as a result. In addition, currently there is no vaccine to protect against this novel H1N1 virus. CDC anticipates that there will be more cases, more hospitalizations and more deaths associated with this new virus.

Sat, 02 May 2009 22:00:00 EST Use of Rapid Influenza Diagnostic Tests for Patients with Influenza-like Illness during the Novel H1N1 Influenza Virus (Swine Flu) Outbreak
It is reasonable to assume that rapid diagnostic tests that detect influenza A viral nucleoprotein antigen can detect novel H1N1 flu infection in respiratory specimens as these nucleoprotein antigens are highly conserved across influenza A viruses. However, the sensitivity and specificity of the different rapid tests is not yet known for this novel virus. CDC has received anecdotal reports of false positive and false negative results. Clinicians may consider using rapid diagnostic tests as part of their evaluation of patients with signs and symptoms compatible with influenza, but results should be interpreted with caution.

Fri, 01 May 2009 01:15:00 EST Guidelines for the Submission of Tissue Specimens for the Pathologic Evaluation of Influenza Virus Infections
Viral antigens and nucleic acids may be focal and sparsely distributed in patients with influenza. Larger airways (particularly primary and segmental bronchi) have the highest yield for detection of influenza viruses by IHC staining. In comparison, viral RNA is more commonly detected in lower airways. Collection of the appropriate tissues ensures the best chance of detecting the virus by immunohistochemical stains and PCR tests.
