Who to blame for flu? Maybe the U.S., study finds

Who to blame for flu? Maybe the U.S., study finds --The first cases of H1N1 swine flu were diagnosed in the United States. Experts are still unsure where swine flu originated. [Yeah, it's a tough one.] 27 May 2010 U.S. researchers said on Thursday. A team at the University of Michigan, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Florida State University found that not all strains of flu circulating in North America die off at the end of influenza season... For example, aggressive use of antiviral drugs such as Roche AG's Tamiflu could promote drug resistance if flu strains never really die out in the United States. [See: Killer flu recreated in the lab 07 Oct 2004. Scientists have shown that tiny changes to modern flu viruses could render them as deadly as the 1918 strain which killed millions. A US team added two genes from a sample of the 1918 virus to a modern strain known to have no effect on mice. Animals exposed to this composite were dying within days of symptoms similar to those found in human victims of the 1918 pandemic.]
