Antigenic characterization of A(H1N1)pdm09-like influenza viruses isolated from pigs, Réunion Island, 2010*

Virus strain HI titers† obtained with reference swine hyperimmune serum samples directed against

*HI, hemagglutination inhibition.
†HI tests were performed according to standard procedure (5).Titers are expressed as the reciprocal of the highest dilution of serum that inhibits 4 hemagglutination units of virus.
‡A(H1N1)pdm09 lineage.
§Classical swine A(H1N1).
¶Avian-like swine A(H1N1).
#Human-like reassortant swine A(H3N2).
**Human-like reassortant swine A(H1N2).
