        "Maybe the people they have underestimated situation, including pharmaceutical companies, which did not bring medicine on the market as they should, therefore, we must release of its reserves," he admitted Valenta. 'But if this I will compare the season 2010/2011, so the current epidemic this course 2001 year practically stínuje."

          EARLY AND UNEXPECTEDLY SEVERE START OF INFLUENZA EPIDEMIC IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC DURING INFLUENZA SEASON 2012-13
          J Kyncl ()1,2, M Havlickova3, A Nagy3, H Jirincova3, I Piskova4

          A sudden increase in severe influenza has been registered in the Czech Republic since the end of 2012, with 264 cases requiring intensive care, including 51 deaths. Most patients had at least one risk factor. Severe influenza in patients with obesity, smoking and/or haematological disorders including haematological cancers was more frequent than in the pre-pandemic period. The seasonal influenza vaccination status of the cases indicates indirect efficiency of the current vaccine in preventing severe influenza.

          Influenza virus activity in Europe is detected each season, yet the precise timing and magnitude of this activity remain highly unpredictable. There was increased media attention regarding the re-occurrence of severe influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 cases at the beginning of 2013 in the Czech Republic. This led to a higher demand of antiviral drugs. In order to clarify the current influenza situation, we provide here representative data from the case-based reports of severe influenza cases and combine them with the data received from routine surveillance.

                pdm.
                Were tested 664 influenza strains to antiviral resistance: 4 isolates
                subtype showed A/H1 H275 amino acid substitution. Two of these isolates
                were from immunodeficient patients treated, the other two from untreated patients

                identification: 14 isolates from Ostrava was included in the B line Yamagata. Identification
                Pilsen isolates begin this week, because unfortunately erythrocyte binding stability at
                recent H1 and H3 subtypes are highly variable and tribes had to be repeatedly
