*Acute-phase serum samples were obtained from 10 pigs in the same batch during the time when clinical signs were apparent (≈2 wk after arrival at the unit). Convalescent-phase serum samples were obtained from 9 pigs in the same batch 21 d later. Standard hemagglutinin inhibition assays were conducted with subtype H1N1, pandemic (H1N1) 2009, and subtype H1N2 virus antigens derived from UK swine isolates. Homologous A/swine/England/1382/10 antigen was also used.
