    Antigenic and genetic characteristics of zoonotic influenza viruses and development of candidate vaccine viruses for pandemic preparedness
    September 2013

    Clip:

    Clade 2.3.2.1 viruses fall into three HA genetic groups as follows.

    A/barn swallow/Hong Kong/D10-1161/2010-like viruses were detected in birds in China and Viet Nam but in reduced numbers compared to recent reporting periods. These viruses were genetically similar to viruses detected previously.

    A/Hubei/1/2010-like viruses were detected in birds and/or environmental samples from Bangladesh, China, India, Nepal, and Viet Nam (Figure 2). While some viruses reacted well with post-infection ferret antisera raised against the available candidate vaccine virus produced from A/Hubei/1/2010, others did not (Table 3). Due to these observations and the widespread distribution of these viruses, a new A/duck/Bangladesh/19097/2013-like candidate vaccine virus is proposed.

    A/Hong Kong/6841/2010-like viruses were detected in China, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Indonesia (detected in birds illegally imported into Europe), and Viet Nam. Antigenically (Table 4) and genetically (Figure 3) some of these viruses have diverged from available candidate vaccine viruses, hence a new A/duck/Viet Nam/1584/2012-like candidate vaccine virus is proposed.

    Clip:
    Table 3. Haemagglutination inhibition reactions of influenza A(H5N1) Clade 2.3.2.1 Hubei-like viruses


    Table 4. Haemagglutination inhibition reactions of influenza A(H5N1) Clade 2.3.2.1 Hong Kong 6841-like viruses

    Influenza A(H5N1) candidate vaccine viruses
    Based on the available antigenic, genetic and epidemiologic data, A/duck/Bangladesh/19097/2013-like (clade 2.3.2.1),
    A/duck/Viet Nam/NCVD-1584/2012-like (clade 2.3.2.1) and A/Cambodia/W0526301/2012-like (clade 1.1) candidate vaccine viruses are proposed.

    See Table 5. Status of influenza A(H5N1) candidate vaccine virus development
    A/chicken/Bangladesh/11RS1984-30/2011-like (2.3.4.2, CDC, Pending)

    Re: ICDDR,B-Health and Science Bulletin: The first fatal human infection with highly pathogenic avian influenza A (H5N1) virus detected in Bangladesh

    WHO Full Text - February 2012
    Clip:
    Clade 2.3.2.1 viruses were detected in wild birds in Bangladesh and China Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (China Hong Kong SAR), in poultry in Bangladesh, China, China Hong Kong SAR, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Nepal and Viet Nam, and in a human in China. Those clade 2.3.2.1 viruses belonging to the A/barn swallow/Hong Kong/D10-1161/2010-like genetic group, which included the human virus from China, reacted well with post-infection ferret antiserum to the candidate vaccine virus A/barn swallow/Hong Kong/D10-1161/2010 (Table 4a) and were genetically similar to each other (Figure 4).

    Some recent clade 2.3.2.1 avian viruses from Bangladesh and Viet Nam belonging to the A/Hubei/1/2010-like genetic group showed reduced reactivity with postinfection ferret antiserum against A/Hubei/1/2010, a virus from which a candidate vaccine virus has been developed. They retained good reactivity with post-infection ferret antiserum against A/common magpie/Hong Kong/5052/2007, a virus from which a candidate vaccine virus has been developed (Table 4b). Increased genetic heterogeneity in HA gene sequence was observed within the A/Hubei/1/2010-like group (Figure 4).

    http://www.who.int/influenza/vaccine...irusupdate.pdf

    Note: (personal summary notes on clade expansion with reference to WHO)
    2.2.2 = 2007-2011 Bangladesh, India (avian, human), candidate vaccine A/chicken/India/NIV33487/2006 and A/bar-headed goose/Qinghai Lake/1A/2005 reacted well with the recent clade 2.2.2 viruses

    2.3.4.2 = 2011-2013 Bangladesh, Myanmar, Vietnam; expanding region to China (mixed avian, few human- i.e. A/Guizhou/1/2012,A/Guizhou/1/2013,A/Guizhou/2/2013)
    candidate vaccine viruses A/chicken/Hong Kong/AP156/2008, A/duck/Laos/3295/2006, and A/Japanese white eye/Hong Kong/1038/2006 did not react well with post-infection ferret antisera against the clade 2.3.4

    Clade 2.3.4.2 viruses were isolated from humans in Guizhou province China. These viruses were genetically similar to A/Guizhou/1/2012 and showed reduced HI titres with post-infection ferret antisera raised against the candidate vaccine viruses A/Anhui/1/2005 and A/chicken/Hong Kong/AP156/2008- A/Guizhou/1/2013-like clade 2.3.4.2 candidate vaccine virus is proposed (few avian, few Human)

    Clade designation criteria

    1) Maintain previously designated clade numbers when possible (i.e., Clade 2.2 remains 2.2 and Clade 1 remains 1)

    2) New clade designations based on phylogenetic tree topology derived from the large tree
    - H5N1 progenitors (closest to gs/Guangdong/1/96) designated as Clade 0
    - Subsequent clades numbered starting from Clade 3 (i.e., Clades 3-9)
    - Clades designated by the presence of a distinct common node shared by at least 4 isolates
    - Subclades/sub-subclades designated as a single clade evolves into more than
    one distinct lineage (based on sharing of a common node)

    3) Average percentage pairwise distances between and within clades (using the Kimura 2-parameter):
    - Distinct clades should have ≥ 1.5% average distances between other clades
    - Distinct clades should have ≤ 1.5% average distances within the clade (may be slightly higher in clades that have highly evolved outliers (i.e., ck/Shanxi/2/06 in Clade 7)

    4) Bootstrap support for clade defining node (based on 1000 replicates)
    - >60 at clade defining node

    5) Antigenic properties as measured by the hemagglutination inhibition assay should be used as a correlate of clade designation when the data is available

    "Note: the derivation tree is still a work in progress and therefore diagnostic results might change until a final diagnostic result gets published"

    I'm not sure if the human sequence is available at GISAID considering it is 2.3.2.1 or even the Frozen chicken sample???

    Fifth and Sixth H5N1 human case in Bangladesh

    Two cases of Influenza H5N1 has been reported from the same surveillance site, as of fourth case, at live bird market in Dhaka City (South) on 04 March 2012.
    This was confirmed by Real time RT-PCR. It may be mentioned that they are the fifth and sixth cases of laboratory confirmed Influenza H5N1 cases of Bangladesh since the first case detected in 2008.

    The fifth case is 26 year old male and sixth case is 18 year old male who had presented with history of fever, sore throat, cough. Now they are free from symptoms. Nasal and throat swab were collected and found positive for H5N1. They are also live bird market workers, like the fourth case.
    They are being treated and followed up by National Rapid Response Team members from IEDCR and ICDDR,B.

    Clip case B
    Case B, a 31 month old boy, developed cough and runny nose on March 1,
    and conjunctivitis on March 2. On March 5 the child developed fever and
    on March 6 he had one episode of vomiting and loose motion (Table 1).
    On March 7, the physician at the Kamalapur Field Clinic found his tonsils
    inflamed and as the case fulfilled the recruitment criteria of ILI collected his
    NPW specimen. The physician treated him with amoxicillin with clavulanic
    acid syrup. The child’s NPW tested positive for influenza A (H5) on March
    15 (Figure 2).
    Ten or twelve days before his illness Case B touched live poultry while his
    mother purchased a live chicken from a roaming vendor. The child was
    present when the chicken was eviscerated. His mother also mentioned that
    the child had cut his hand with a knife while she was preparing the chicken
    and she pressed her hand on his wound to stop the bleeding while her hand
    was still contaminated with raw chicken. Many of their neighbours in the
    slum where they live raised ducks, chicken and quail in the yard where the
    child played. The mother took the child along with her inside the wet market
    where poultry are sold during the week prior to his illness.

    A pool of chicken fecal samples from two live bird markets located close to
    the houses of these three cases in Kamalapur tested positive for influenza A
    (H5) by RT-PCR.

    2nd Human case of Influenza H5N1 in 2011
    A case of Influenza H5N1 has been identified from one of our surveillance sites in Dhaka on 15th of March 2011. This was confirmed by Real-time RT-PCR.
    This is 31 month old male child who has presented with a history of cough and fever.
    Nasal and throat swab and blood were collected and found positive for H5N1.
    He has no symptom of illness now and completely recovered.
    This is the 2nd case of H5N1 infections in human this year.
    It may be mention here that the first human case of H5N1 was reported in Bangladesh in May 2008.

    Avian influenza - situation in Bangladesh - update
    11 April 2011 - The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh has confirmed a new case of human infection with avian influenza A(H5N1) virus.

    The case is a 2 years old male from Kamalapur, Dhaka. He developed symptoms on 1 March. He visited the influenza sentinel surveillance site on 9 March where he was sampled. He completely recovered.

    Detailed epidemiological investigation and contact follow up was conducted by a team from the Institute of Epidemiology Disease Control and Research (IEDCR), the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh ( ICDDRB) and WHO Bangladesh, and no further cases were identified.

    The investigation into the source of infection indicate that the case had exposure to sick poultry. Although the case is from the same locality as the previous case they had no direct contact with each other.

    The case was confirmed as being infected with A(H5N1) by the Institute of Epidemiology Disease Control and Research (IEDCR).

    Re: ICDDR,B-Health and Science Bulletin: The first fatal human infection with highly pathogenic avian influenza A (H5N1) virus detected in Bangladesh

    Government of Bangladesh and ICDDR,B researchers identify Avian influenza A(H5N1) in humans - icddr,b

    Clip:
    On 16 March 2011, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in Bangladesh reported a confirmed human case of avian influenza A(H5N1). The case was detected through an influenza surveillance centre run by the Institute of Epidemiology Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) and ICDDR,B.

    The case was a 16-month old baby girl, living in Kamalapur, in the heart of Dhaka city. The baby’s parents brought her to an influenza sentinel surveillance centre on March 8 with a history of fever. Two days later, a two-year-old boy also living in the area was diagnosed with the same virus. The boy also displayed signs of a fever and cough.

    To confirm infection, both children were tested through nasal pharyngeal washes as well as blood samples. The children are not related nor do they live in the same household. However, both have since made a full recovery without requiring any hospitalisation or anti-viral treatments.

    A team of epidemiologists from IEDCR, ICDDRB and WHO Bangladesh have begun a detailed epidemiological investigation and contact follow up to determine the source of the recent

    Outbreak of mild respiratory disease caused by H5N1 and H9N2 infections
    among young children in Dhaka, Bangladesh, 2011
    ICDDR,B • Health and Science Bulletin • Vol. 9 No. 2 • June 2011
    http://www.icddrb.org/media-centre/n...-in-bangladesh


    On March 13, 2011, the Kamalapur urban surveillance site reported a human
    case of avian influenza A (H5N1). The same surveillance site reported two
    more human cases, one with avian influenza A (H5N1) and another with
    avian influenza A (H9N2) in the following 10 days.
    Immediately after the first case was reported, the Institute of Epidemiology,
    Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) and International Centre for Diarrhoeal
    Diseases Research, Bangladesh (ICDDR,B) jointly formed a collaborative
    team of epidemiologists, veterinarians and anthropologists to conduct an
    outbreak investigation. The objective of this investigation was to understand
    the pathway of transmission and to explore the factors that contributed to
    the occurrence of these three human cases of avian influenza. In this report we present the epidemiological, clinical and virological findings of these
    cases.

    Clip case A
    Case A was a 13 month old girl who developed a cough on March 5 followed
    by fever on March 7. She visited the ICDDR,B Kamalapur Field Clinic on
    March 9. On examination she had fever (39°C) with otherwise normal
    findings (Table 1). Physician on duty classified her as a case of influenza like
    illness (ILI) and collected a NPW specimen from her as part of the ongoing
    influenza surveillance. The NPW specimen tested positive by real-time RTPCR
    for influenza A (H5) on March 13, and IEDCR immediately reported
    the case to the World Health Organization as per the International Health
    Regulations. On March 14, when we interviewed the case, she reported no
    fever since March 11 but she still had cough and had one episode of loose
    motion on that day (Figure 2).

    Table 1: Clinical features of human cases of avian influenza H5N1 and H9N2
    infection in Bangladesh, February-March 2011

    Seven days before her onset of illness, seven chickens were slaughtered,
    defeathered and skinned inside Case A’s home while she was at home. Case
    A visited her grandparents house in Munshiganj district for three days, five
    days before her symptoms began. While in Munshiganj, she was in the
    company of her great grandmother, who was diagnosed with bronchial
    asthma and was suffering from respiratory distress during that period.

    There were reports of crow die-offs in the village in recent weeks and the
    investigative team observed one sick crow and five dead crows, as well as
    freely roaming chickens raised by neighbours.

    Viruses were isolated from NPW specimens of all three cases and full genome
    sequencing of the cultured isolates was performed. Phylogenetic analysis of
    the two isolated H5N1 viruses indicates that they belong to the clade 2.2
    lineage and that they are closely related to H5N1 virus isolates of avian origin

    First confirmed human infection with avian influenza A (H5N1) virus in Bangladesh

    http://www.icddrb.org/media-centre/n...ngladeshladesh icddr,b Periodicals, Health and Science Bulletin, Vol. 6 No. 2 June 2008
    Clip:
    15-month old male Kamalapur resident developed cough and runny nose on 22 January 2008. By 27 January his breathing was labored. On 29 January his mother brought him to the ICDDR,B clinic in Kamalapur. On examination the child had a temperature of 38.1 °C, a respiratory rate of 40 breaths per minute, pulse of 124, weight for age was the 78th percentile and no abnormal sounds were heard on chest auscultation. Because the child was part of the active surveillance system, a chest radiograph was obtained. The child was also selected for nasopharyngeal wash and influenza viral culture, based on the one in five sampling method. The initial clinical impression was that the child had enteric fever. The child was treated with amoxicillin. The chest radiograph was initially read by the radiologist as normal, but later interpreted by the clinicians as showing an alveolar infiltrate. Because the child was in the surveillance system, a field worker visited him daily at his home. He was also seen in the clinic for follow-up on 31 January, 5 February, 10 February and 13 February. Although the mother reported the child had fever at home as late as 7 February, an elevated temperature was not identified on exam after the initial clinic visit. The child completed a 13 day course of amoxicillin. On his last clinic visit on 13 February the child was clinically well. The final clinical diagnosis was upper respiratory tract infection. The child was not diagnosed as pneumonia because chest auscultation was consistently normal. The child was re-evaluated on 22 May and remained clinically well.

    Clip:
    Previously six human cases of avian influenza A (H5N1) were identified in Bangladesh between 2008 and 2012; all cases experienced mild respiratory illness.
    On 12 February 2013, a 23-month old boy from Comilla was hospitalized for febrile convulsions and enrolled in a respiratory virus research study. Laboratory tests conducted on 12 March suggested that the boy had influenza A (H5) infection. This was the 7th case of A (H5N1) identified in Bangladesh. A joint IEDCR-icddr,b outbreak response team investigated to explore the child’s exposure history and clinical outcome and to look for additional cases in the community. Several chickens raised in the family’s backyard became sick a few days before he became ill; they were slaughtered and the boy played with the carcasses. The child died on February 18 with evidence of severe pneumonia, meningitis and disseminated intravascular coagulation; no other human cases were identified. Viral sequences from the child and slaughtered chicken confirmed that both were infected with influenza A (H5N1), clade 2.3.2.1. This first identified death from avian influenza infection in Bangladesh presented primarily with neurologic rather than respiratory symptoms and was apparently infected through contact with sick chickens. Clinicians should consider avian influenza infection in the differential diagnosis for any patient with severe respiratory or neurologic infection with a history of contact with sick poultry. All such patients should be treated with oseltamivir.
