Official Title: Zoonotic Influenza Infections of Swine Origin at Ohio Agricultural Fairs

View on ClinicalTrials.gov


The flu is a very infectious and contagious virus that affects both people and pigs. Studies show that pigs can be sources of the flu virus in humans. Researchers want to know more about how the flu is transmitted from animals to people. If they know more about it, they can find better ways to prevent the flu and treat people who get sick from it.

Eligibility criteria:

- Volunteers at least 8 years of age or older who exhibit pigs at agricultural fairs in Ohio.
