Reagents, Serology, Virus, Influenza A
Definition : Serology reagents intended to detect and/or identify antigens or serum antibody titers to Influenza virus type A, a single-stranded RNA virus of the family Orthomyxoviridae. Influenza A viruses may cause human influenza, a disease characterized by sudden onset of high fever, myalgia, headache, severe malaise, nonproductive cough, sore throat, and rhinitis. Known subtypes of influenza that affect humans are H1N1, H1N2, and H3N2; other subtypes such as H5 and H7 (i.e., avian influenza) affect birds but may affect occasionally humans.
