Project: Avian influenza in swine: Pathogenesis and risk of transmission to humans
- project duration
- 01-MAR-05 – 28-FEB-08
- We will perform experimental inoculations of pigs with avian influenza viruses with the purpose to determine the role of swine in the transmission of avian influenza viruses to humans and to study the pathobiology of these viruses in swine. We will also determine a reliable and sensitive serological method to detect antibodies to avaian influenza viruses in swine sera.
