Excerpt
The antigenic characterization of influenza A isolates examined between June 1971 and April 1971 is shown in Tubb 1. During this period only a small proportion of strains showed s i a c a n t antigenic differences from prototype A/Hong Kong/1/68 (H3N2). Since May 1972 this distribution has shown considerable change. All isolates (37) from recent outbreaks of influenza in Malaysia and Singapore and current outbreaks in Australia resembled the variant A/England/42/72. The latter strain was initially characterized at the Central Public Health Laboratory, London, as showing considerable antigenic drift from AlHong Kong/1/68. It was isolated in both eggs and monkey kidney cultures from a case of clinical influenza in the United Kingdom in January 1972. However, subsequently a collection of isolates obtained between July and December 1971 from outbreaks of influenza in Coonoor, South India, was found to consist predominantly of strains like A/England/4/72 and this represents the earliest isolations of the variant. Three current influenza A isolates from Australia and a recent isolate from Hawaii examined at the WHO International Influenza Centre for the Americas, Center for Disease Control (CDC), Atlanta, Ga, USA, were confirmed as being closely related to A/England/42/72.
