  Background Avian Influenza (AI) virus belongs to the Orthomyxoviridae family, Influenzavirus A genus. This virus possesses eight segments of single-stranded RNA genome. Two of these segments encode for two important membrane glycoproteins, hemagglutinin (HA) and neuraminidase (NA) [1], that play a key role during cellular infection. These two proteins are used for virus subtype classifica ...

Responding to your comments and inquieries, we have worked in a collaborative proyect with the USDA team to construct 3 recombinant vaccines that belong to genotypes VI, VII and XIII. The strain to be used will depend on the population of velogenic field strains circulating in each country. We have both the live and killed vaccines developed. The vaccine will be available through asignated distrib ...
