Extensive Product Range to Enhance Avian Influenza Research Potential

Since October 2021, an unprecedented outbreak of avian flu has spread among wild birds and livestock and has been observed infecting mammals such as foxes and minks. Avian influenza is caused by the Influenza A virus, a negative-sense RNA virus often characterized into subtypes by variation in two surface proteins, hemagglutinin, and neuraminidase. Influenza A is transmitted via direct and indirect contact between birds, via airborne and fecal-oral transmission routes. The most recent outbreak is caused by a variant of H5N1, also known as Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI). The hemagglutinin and neuraminidase proteins are both involved in the attachment of the virus to host cells and the fusion of the virus and host cell membranes.
Mammalian infection with HPAI increases the likelihood that the virus will adapt to be sustainably transmitted between mammals. If sustainable transmission can occur in humans, this poses a substantial health risk. The current outbreak of H5N1 has shown zoonosis and led to the death of a young girl in Cambodia and the infection of another family member. To prevent further damage to endangered species, and reduce the chances of HPAI adapting to humans, the spread within intensive and domestic poultry and wild bird species must be monitored. Reliable rapid testing kits need to be readily available to both conservationists and domestic livestock keepers to allow for widespread reporting of infections.
