Influenza A Virus

Viruses of the genus Influenzavirus A belong to the family Orthomyxoviridae. They occur in high genetic diversity and a wide range of virulence. Influenza A Viruses are grouped into low and highly pathogenic strains. Waterfowl are the natural reservoir of low-pathogenic avian influenza viruses (LPAIV). Highly pathogenic Avian Influenza Viruses (HPAIV) belong to subtypes H5 or H7 and may cause fowl plague in domestic poultry with high economic losses. The subtypes H1N1, H1N2, and H3N2 of Influenza A Virus can also cause infections of the respiratory tract in swine as can the subtype H3N8 in equids.
