Contents include: * Clinical and Medical Information – Risk Groups, Symptoms, Testing, Treatment, Prevention * Vaccination and Antiviral Drugs * Risk of a catastrophic pandemic * Outbreaks of avian influenza ("bird flu") * Clinical Trials An influenza pandemic is a global outbreak of disease that occurs when a new influenza A virus appears or “emerges” in the human population, causes serious illness, and then spreads easily from person to person worldwide. Pandemics are different from seasonal outbreaks or “epidemics” of influenza. Seasonal outbreaks are caused by subtypes of influenza viruses that are already in existence among people, whereas pandemic outbreaks are caused by new subtypes or by subtypes that have never circulated among people or that have not circulated among people for a long time. Past influenza pandemics have led to high levels of illness, death, social disruption, and economic loss.
