Methods in Molecular Biology, Animal Influenza Virus. 2nd edition. Humana Press. 1161:355-361. Technical Abstract: Swine influenza is a disease of the respiratory tract caused by influenza A virus (IAV). Experimental inoculation of pigs involves either aerosolization of virus and inhalation, or the direct introduction of virus into the upper or lower respiratory tract. This chapter covers methods for experimental IAV infection of pigs and collection of specific samples to study the pathogenesis of swine influenza and vaccine efficacy.
