Abstract

Although vaccination remains the most effective method of managing influenza epidemics, there is still much that remains to be characterized about humoral immunity against the varying contexts in which influenza infection can occur. With the continuous subversion of humoral immunity by seasonal influenza through antigenic drift and the potential of zoonotic influenza viruses adapting and spreading through human populations through antigenic shift, improving our understanding of B cell immunity against different types of influenza infection could provide important insights into improving management of epidemics and vaccine formulations. In order to understand B cell responses during influenza..
