AbstractINTRODUCTION: The dynamics of pandemic influenza A⁄H1N1 compared to seasonal strains of influenza is not clearly understood. It is important to understand the patterns of viral shedding and symptoms over time in community-based infections. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Household infections were followed-up in two large community-based studies. Patterns of viral shedding, symptoms and signs, and tympanic temperature were plotted over time and grouped according to strain for analysis. RESULTS: The patterns of viral shedding, symptoms and signs, and tympanic temperature in three influenza A strains (pandemic A⁄ H1N1, seasonal A⁄ H1N1, and seasonal A⁄ H3N2) were comparable. Peak viral shedding occurred close to the onset of symptoms and resolved after 6–7 days. Patterns of viral shedding in influenza B virus infections differed. DISCUSSION: The patterns of viral shedding and clinical course of pandemic influenza A⁄H1N1 infections were broadly similar to seasonal influenza A⁄H1N1 and A⁄ H3N2. Only the clinical course of seasonal influenza B infections was similar to pandemic influenza A⁄ H1N1. The dynamics of pandemic influenza A⁄H1N1 were observed to be largely alike to the dynamics of seasonal influenza A⁄H1N1 and A⁄ H3N2.
