Re: Bird Flu Redux

Here's one of the best stories I've read so far on H5N1. It even tells you how to decode the name!

Canadian Press

http://www.cnn.com/2005/HEALTH/10/20....ap/index.html

It starts off with:

Quote:

The 2005--06 trivalent vaccine virus strains are A/California/7/2004 (H3N2)-like, A/New Caledonia/20/99 (H1N1)-like, and B/Shanghai/361/2002-like antigens.

CDC
