As per available reports Avian Influenza involves 1 relevant journals , 2 Conference and 8 National symposiums are presently dedicated exclusively to Avian Influenza and about 59 open access articles and 142 Conference Proceedings are being published on Avian Influenza.
Avian influenza virus usually refers to influenza A viruses found chiefly in birds, but infections can occur in humans. The risk is generally low to most people, because the viruses do not usually infect humans. Humans can become ill when infected with viruses from animal sources, such as avian influenza virus subtypes H5N1 and H9N2 and swine flu virus subtypes H1N1 and H3N2. The primary risk factor for human infection appears to be direct or indirect exposure to infected live or dead animals or contaminated environments. Avian flu , listed by the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), has become a disease of great importance for animal and human health. Several aspects of the disease lack scientific information, which has hampered the management of some recent crises. Millions of animals have died, and concern is growing over the loss of human lives and management of the pandemic potential.

Scope and Importance:
Studies are being conducted to find new drugs against avian influenza as some strains have started to show resistance. Public health policy makers are continually updating their strategies to contain outbreaks on local and global scenarios. As can be seen from current research work the fight against influenza involves professionals from various fields and Flu-2016 to bring all these people from diverse fields together so that meaningful discussions and deliberations can take place.Experts from various fields like virology, medicine, immunology, microbiology, public health planning, epidemiology, pharmacology and vaccinology all work on the flu virus.
Two major strains of avian influenza are being monitored as they have the potential to develop into a deadly pandemic are Influenza A subtypes H7N9 and H5N1.
Avian influenza A H7 viruses normally circulate amongst avian populations with some variants known to occasionally infect humans. The first few cases of infection by this occurred in 3012 and have continued through to 2014. The unique thing about this subtype is that is it seems adapted to mammals and humans, something which was not seen before. It is for this reason that this subtype is closely watched.
Influenza A virus subtype H5N1, is a subtype of the influenza A virus which can cause illness in humans and many other animal species. A major risk factor is handling infected poultry. Very few cases of human to human transmission have been recorded. Around 60% of the people infected with this strain have died. Fortunately this strain is not very virulent and so is inefficient at infecting people at higher rates. Due to the not so negligible possibility of mutation of a more virulent strain many governments across the globe are monitoring it.
Many countries choose to kill all infected poultry to control avian influenza, instead of immunizations which lead a huge lose . Therefor, immunize the poultry with avian influenza vaccines is necessary. As of the July 25, 2008 FAO Avian Influenza Disease Emergency Situation Update, H5N1 pathogenicity is continuing to gradually rise in endemic areas but the avian influenza disease situation in farmed birds is being held in check by vaccination. In 2013, the live stock volume of laying hens in China was about 1.4 billion while that of broilers was approximately 10 billion. The output volume of eggs in China was 28.76 million tons in 2013, up by 0.5% YOY. According to National Compulsory Immunization Plan of Animal Epidemic Diseases 2013 issued by Ministry of Agriculture of China, the government conducts compulsory immunizations against 4 diseases, including highly pathogenic avian influenza. The government is responsible for the expenses. In 2013, the market size of avian influenza vaccines exceeded CNY 1 billion in China.
