Cocirculation and evolution of two lineages of influenza B viruses in europe and Israel in the 2001-2002 season



Cocirculation and evolution of two lineages of influenza B viruses in europe and Israel in the 2001-2002 season



Journal of Clinical Microbiology 41(12): 5770-5773



Forty-nine influenza B virus isolates collected in Belgium, Finland, Spain, and Israel during the 2001-2002 winter season were categorized into either of two lineages, B/Yamagata/16/88 or B/Victoria/2/87, based on the phylogenetic studies of HA1 sequences. The data trace the geographic spread of B/Victoria/2/87-like viruses and support the emergence of B/Hong Kong/1351/02-like viruses, possibly due to selective advantages of reassortment.
