Bird Flu Monitor > Pig flu + avian flu = Bio-Armageddon - Crunchy Con
[Crunchy Con] The answer is definitely yes, and that is the worry because one of influenza A's most disturbing characteristics is its ability to indulge in recombination of its 11 genes, which are arranged on its eight pieces of RNA. This produces what is called genetic shift -- in other words, transfer of entire genes or gene combinations, and hence traits.

[WorldwideHealth] Viruses | Health Articles | Flu Viruses: All influenza A viruses contain hemagglutinin and neuraminidase, although the structure of these proteins differ from strain to strain due to rapid genetic mutation in the viral genome. Influenza A virus strains are assigned an H number and an N number based on which forms of these two proteins the strain contains.

For example, “the protocol should include a clinic visit or telephone contact at least six months post-vaccination to ascertain serious adverse events.” Or, “we recommend that you assess the safety of your investigational vaccine in several thousand subjects.” Or, “we assume that approval for use in the adult population, including the geriatric population, would be sought with the initial application.” More seriously is this allowance given to a vaccine manufacturer, “For vaccines using novel manufacturing processes and/or adjuvants, laboratory safety tests including hematologic and clinical chemistry evaluations, may be needed pre- and post-vaccination in the first clinical studies.” (All italics are ours to clearly identify word choice in the official CDC document).
