Abstract

Swine influenza is a disease of the respiratory tract caused by influenza A virus (IAV). Experimental inoculation of pigs involves either aerosolization and inhalation of virus or the direct introduction of virus into the upper or lower respiratory tract. This chapter covers methods for experimental IAV infection of pigs and collection of specific samples to study the pathogenesis of swine influenza and vaccine efficacy.
