Academic Journal
The article focuses on the study conducted to examine pandemic and post-pandemic influenza A (H1N1) infection in patients. It reveals that HIV virus is associated with higher mortality during the post-pandemic Influenza (H1N1)v infection period of patients. Further it concludes that the post-pandemic Influenza (H1N1)v infection period of patients has higher mortality rate.

    Background: In 2009 a new influenza serotype (AH1N1) was identified in Mexico that spread rapidly generating worldwide alarm. San Luis Potosi (SLP) was the third state with more cases reported in that year. The clinical identification of this flu posed a challenge to medical staff. This study...
