Lecture of research work on swine influenza

Next 16th September, Juliana del Pilar González Zabala (PhD student of the CReSA) will carry out the lecture and defense of the research work entitled “In vitro study of the pattern of viral adhesion in swine influenza virus” directed by Dr. Francesc Xavier Abad Morejón de Girón and Dr. Antonio Ramis Salva.

With the aim of studying the in respiratory and digestive tissues in different animals, the histochemical technique for H1N1, H1N2, and H3N2 swine influenza virus was employed. The existence of virus receptors in respiratory epithelial cells in different species has been reported. In some cases, these receptors have been detected in pneumocytes I, pneumocytes II and alveolar macrophages.

The lecture and defence will be carried out next 16th September, 15:00h, Sala de Graus of the Veterinary School, UAB.
