Emerging seasonal and pandemic influenza infections

Guest Editor: Hongzhou Lu (Shanghai Public Health Clinic Center, Fudan University, Shanghai)

EMI Special Topic- emerging seasonal and pandemic influenza infections will include papers on the basic and clinical researches of emerging influenza viruses in recent years. Influenza was prevalent all over the world and can cause severe diseases in high-risk people. Avian influenza viruses can also infect human and cause deaths. The human infection caused by highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (H5N1) occurred initially in Hongkong in 1997. Human infection with avian influenza A(H7N9) was first reported from China in March 2013. The understanding of the pathogenesis, epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment of avian influenza virus infection has been enhanced. Extensive studies have been done on the seasonal influenza viruses especially influenza A(H1N1)pdm09. The H1N1 virus strain was first identified in 2009, caused the H1N1 influenza pandemic and is still circulating all over the world. EMI Special Topic-influenza welcomes research reports and high quality reviews on these important emerging viruses.
