nd why only some pregnant women develop complications.

  • Dr. John Schrader from the University of British Columbia and his team will look into the rapid development of new drug therapies to treat patients with severe H1N1 infections.

  • Dr. Satyendra Sharma from the University of Manitoba and his team will seek to determine why some patients with H1N1 go on to develop Serious Respiratory Illness. The team will closely study how the immune system fights the virus, and how this response differs in persons who develop severe illness after being infected with H1N1. The team will also track the long-term outcome of people who have developed Severe Respiratory Illness.

  • Dr. Ccile Tremblay from the Centre hospitalier de l'Universit de Montral and her team will look at various immune responses to the vaccine with a view to develop immune-based preventative and therapeutic strategies for those at a higher risk of severe illness.

    This research builds on the work being done by the Public Health Agency of Canada and the CIHR Influenza Research Network.
