Evidence on H1N1 D225G in Lung Cases in Norway and Ukraine. -- (Recombinomics)

 

Thus, there was and is ample evidence of D225G in severe and fatal cases.  Like 1918, it is not in all samples from fatal cases, and as with all infectious disease, not all infections are fatal.  If the initial dose is low, or the hosts mounts and effective early defense, the clinical course may be mild, as has been seen with virtually all influenza infections, including H5N1 infections such as those in Egypt.

Thus, the presence of the 1918 receptor binding domain change in an H1N1 swine virus that has  jumped to humans is cause for concern, and a more comprehensive survey of lung samples is useful, as well as release of  new receptor binding data.
