H1N1 flu virus triggered a human pandemic in the spring of 2009, infecting people in more than 200 countries. In the U.S., it led to an estimated 60 million illnesses, 270,000 hospitalizations and 12,500 deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Dr. Kevin Njabo and Professor Tom Smith and their colleagues recently found H1N1 flu virus prevalent in 89% of domestic swine they sampled in villages in Cameroon. The findings are significant because influenza viruses in pigs can mix into much more virulent strains that can spread quickly. The study is part of a multi-country collaborative effort funded by the Fogarty International Center at the National Institutes of Health to examine spillover and transmission of the H1N1 flu virus between animals and humans.
