  1. Concurrent antigenic analysis of recent epidemic influenza A and B viruses and quantitation of antibodies in population serosurveys in Italy.

    Article - En anglais

    Laboratory investigations of virus isolation and serum antibodies in a Mediterranean country (Italy) demonstrated that influenza A and B viruses, and often both, circulated every winter in Italy.

    The winter 1987/88 was characterized by a low level of influenza activity, as shown by the limited number (47) of influenza virus isolates, the majority of which (61%) belonged to the influenza B type.

    In contrast, the 1988/89 influenza season was exclusively associated with the circulation of influenza type A viruses.

    The A(H1H1) subtype was largely predominant (97%), as compared to the low incidence of the A(H3N2) subtype (3%). During the 1989/90 winter a cocirculation of A and B influenza viruses was observed, A(H3N2) strains being responsible for 96% of the virologically confirmed cases.
