- A matrix gene-based multiplex real-time RT-PCR for detection and differentiation of 2009 pandemic H1N1 and other influenza A viruses in North AmericaKaren Harmon
Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, Iowa State University, Ames, IA 50011, USA
Influenza Other Respi Viruses 4:405-10. 2010..The emergence in humans of pandemic (H1N1) 2009 (pH1N1) with similarities to swine influenza viruses (SIVs) caused much concern for both human and animal health as potential for interspecies transmission was initially unknown...
- Influenza A pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus infection in domestic catBrett A Sponseller
College of Veterinary Medicine, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa 50011 1248, USA
Emerg Infect Dis 16:534-7. 2010..In 2009, pandemic (H1N1) 2009 infection in a domestic cat from Iowa was diagnosed by a novel PCR assay that distinguishes between Eurasian and North American pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus matrix genes. Human-to-cat transmission is presumed...
- Comparison of RNA extraction and real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction methods for the detection of Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus in porcine oral fluid specimensWayne A Chittick
Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, College of Veterinary Medicine, Iowa State University, 1600 South 16th Street, Ames, IA 50011 1250, USA
J Vet Diagn Invest 23:248-53. 2011..The results suggest that further optimization of PCR assays for porcine oral fluids is needed and that laboratories should not assume that methods optimized for detection of virus in serum will perform equally with porcine oral fluids...
