Clinical Impact and Diagnostic Approaches

The common symptoms of influenza are respiratory illness such as cough, fever, running nose, sore throat etc. Few people may have respiratory illness but others symptoms may be absent. Traditionally conventional viral cultures are used as standard for diagnosis of influenza which is used as a method of comparison for commercial assays. Rapid culture techniques are in practice for respiratory viruses.


According to WHO, nearly fifty thousand people pass away while one billion people get infected by this virus. Children and people with altered medical conditions are at high risk. Mostly clinical diagnosis of influenza is taken into account when the virus is known to be circulating. Diagnosis can be carried out by taking respiratory samples from infected person and carrying laboratory tests such as PCR, Immunofluorescence assay and rapid antigen test etc.
