Prevalence of human (H1N1) influenza virus-antibody in japanese swine

  • Y. Miwa (a1), H. Goto (a1), S. Noro (a2) and N. Sakurada (a2)

Summary

A total of 571 swine sera collected at an abattoir in the city of Obihiro, Hokkaido during the period February–November 1984 were tested for antibody against human (H1N1) influenza virus strains. A high prevalence of antibody was observed for only 3 months from April to June in that year, in 81/180 sera (45·0%) to A/USSR/92/77 strain and in 50/180 sera (27·8%) to a current epidemic strain (A/Hokkaido/1/84). Some cross-reactions were observed between the A/USSR/92/77 and A/Hokkaido/1/84 antibodies (r = 0·75). Only minor relationships were noted between the A/New Jersey/8/76 (swine type H1N1) and A/USSR/92/77 (r = 0·35) or A/Hokkaido/1/84 (r = 0·51) antibodies. Absorption of sera positive for antibody to the A/Hokkaido/1/84 strain with the homologous virus strain removed all detectable antibodies, while the absorption of the sera with the A/New Jersey/8/76 strain produced incomplete absorption in one half of the sera tested. These resultsstrongly suggest that the swine became infected with a human H1N1 virus as piglets during an epidemic of influenza which occurred in the human population during January and February 1984.
