Flu /Influenza Virus

Influenza viruses are among the most common causes of human respiratory infections, and are also among the most significant because they cause high morbidity and mortality. Influenza outbreaks have apparently occurred since atleast the Middle Ages. In the elderly, in infants, and in people with chronic diseases, influenza is associated with especially high mortality. In the United States, flu results in approximately 200,000 hospitalizations and 36,000 deaths in a typical endemic season.

Flu is a respiratory infection that can cause serious complications, particularly to young children, older adults and people with certain medical conditions.When influenza virus is introduced into the respiratory tract, by aerosol or by contact with saliva or other respiratory secretions from an infected individual, it attaches to and replicates in epithelial cells. The virus replicates in cells of both the upper and lower respiratory tract. Viral replication combined with the immune response to infection lead to destruction and loss of cells lining the respiratory tract.Pathological conditions in influenza infection leades death which included diffuse alveolar damage, extensive secondary pneumonia, extensive intraalveolar hemorrhage, viral pneumonitis, myocarditis and meningoencephalitis.
