Contaigous swine flu could mix with bird flu and regular flu strains

As global health officals ponder “what if” scenarios over the mixing of the new H1N1 flu with bird flu that is endemic in Asia and/or regular flu in the southern hemisphere, researchers are grappling with new vaccine concerns and whether in the fall, a new flu strain combination will be more virulent.

Alexander Ozonoff, a BU School of Public Health assistant professor of biostatistics, who has worked with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on influenza tracking can address these issues.
