Avian influenza A virus transmission and the emergence of drug resistance
As avian influenza A viruses (AIV) continue to circulate worldwide both naturally, within the reservoir host of wild waterfowl, and cross species barriers, eventually establishing itself in new host species, it is imperative to study the natural reservoir in respect to virus change and transmissibility. This dissertation will focus on the transmissibility of a mallard virus from mallards to other wild and domestic species as well as elucidate the possible outcomes of oseltamivir contamination in the environment and its effect on influenza A virus infected mallards. Low pathogenicity (LP) AIVs ...
