Serology. Antibodies to influenza virus appear after ∼2 weeks and peak 4 to 7 weeks after infection. A variety of serological tests, including hemagglutination inhibition (HAI) assays, complement fixation assays, and enzyme immunoassays (EIAs), exist (71, 83, 90, ).A ≥4-fold change or increase in influenza virus antibody titers in paired acute- and convalescent-phase Cited by: Filling a unique niche, Animal Influenza, Second Edition is the only comprehensive text on animal influenza for veterinary medicine.

Background. It is estimated that 90% of deaths due to influenza infection occur in individuals aged 65 or older. 1 Many older individuals live in long-term care facilities (LTCFs), where they have frequent interactions with other residents and nursing staff, but few interactions with the outside world.
