Risk assessment model to reduce bi-directional interspecies influenza transmission in an indoor hog grower unit

The purpose of this project was to produce effective risk assessment models to compare the likely effectiveness of different management and biosecurity practices and policies to prevent transmission of different influenza strains.

Evaluation of hand hygiene procedures as interventions to decrease the risk of influenza transmission between pigs and people

This study assessed the effectiveness of four hand sanitation protocols in decreasing or removing IAV from hands of individuals handling influenza infected pigs, including hand washing with soap and water, hand washing with water only, hand sanitizing with alcohol-based hand sanitizer, and wearing gloves.

Epidemiological surveillance of influenza A viruses in pigs entering swine exhibitions
Swine play a key role in the evolution and ecology of influenza A virus (IAV) infecting humans as pigs are a host species in which reassortment of the IAV segmented genome commonly occurs. Due to the...
