Subtype H10 influenza A viruses (IAVs) have been recovered from domestic poultry and various aquatic bird species, and sporadic transmission of these IAVs from avian species to mammals (i.e., human, seal, and mink) are well documented. Mild focal malacia, necrosis of the neurons, and disorders of blood rheology in all examined cases indicated a high neurotropism of the A(H5N8) HPAIV, which was confirmed by positive virologic results and by IHC and IF analyses. The Evolution, Spread and Global Threat of H6Nx Avian Influenza Viruses . Another South Korean A(H5N6) isolate, detected in 2016, had the IVPI value of 2.94 and the mean death time (MDT) for embryos was 36 h (Kim et al., 2017). Review .
Searchable database of influenza genomes with visualization and analysis tools. A Korean A(H5N6) isolate was tested in 6‐week‐old SPF chickens inoculated intravenously and the IVPI value was 2.66 (Si et al., 2017). Viral titers in the brains of H5N6- and H5N8-infected ducks were significantly higher than those of H5N2-infected ducks . In other Asian avian flu developments: Japan today reported its seventh avian influenza outbreak at a farm, affecting poultry in Kumamoto prefecture, according to an agriculture ministry report translated and posted by Avian Flu Diary (AFD), an infectious disease news message board. Aerosol transmission of gull-origin Iceland subtype H10N7 influenza A virus in ferrets. Avian influenza viruses of the subtype H6Nx are being detected globally with increasing frequency. H6Nx viruses that contain mammalian adaptation motifs pose a zoonotic threat and have caused human cases.
It said H5N6 was confirmed in Yining, a city of 500,000, and that the virus had already killed 10,716 birds.
