Abstract

So much has been learnt about the proteins of influenza virus during the last three years that most of the gene products can now be tentatively assigned a structural or functional role in the virion or in the infected cell. Indeed, it could be said that influenza vies with reovirus and poliovirus for the privilege of becoming the first mammalian virus to be completely characterized chemically and genetically. In the case of influenza, however, this is more than an exercise in molecular biology, for influenza heads the list of pandemic infectious diseases that still pose a major threat to modern man. A precise understanding of the evolution of novel variants of influenza virus, by antigenic drift or genetic reassortment, is crucial to the development of satisfactory combative measures, whether based on immunization, chemoprophylaxis, chemotherapy, or even ecological control.
