    Abstract

    Back to the top

    The system of genetic control of innate immune responses to influenza infection and gene function allows for the development of systemic treatment of influenza with a focus on the phenotype of mutations based on individual genetic susceptibility to severe disease and/or the development of complications.
    Full text is at the link. If I'm reading this right, Japan and China are much more vulnerable to severe influenza than northern Europe and England.
