Influenza is an acute respiratory illness, caused by influenza A, B, and C viruses,that occurs in local outbreaks or seasonal epidemics. Clinical illness follows a shortincubation period and presentation ranges from asymptomatic to fulminant, dependingon the characteristics of both the virus and the individual host. Influenza A virusescan also cause sporadic infections or spread worldwide in a pandemic when novel strainsemerge in the human population from an animal host. New approaches to influenza preventionand treatment for management of both seasonal influenza epidemics and pandemics aredesirable.
