Highly Pathogenic Reassortant Avian Influenza A(H5N1) Virus Clade 220.127.116.11a In Poultry, Bhutan
Pubmed Central ID:PMC5189144
Description:Highly pathogenic avian influenza A(H5N1), clade 18.104.22.168a, with an H9-like polymerase basic protein 1 gene, isolated in Bhutan in 2012, replicated faster in vitro than its H5N1 parental genotype and was transmitted more efficiently in a chicken model. These properties likely help limit/eradicate outbreaks, combined with strict control measures.
