Influenza is an acute infection of the respiratory tract that predominately affects the nose, throat and bronchi, and less commonly the lungs. Influenza viruses have a single-stranded segmented RNA genome.

They belong to the family Orthomyxoviridae, and are categorized into three genera based on their core proteins - A, B and C. Influenza A and B viruses are responsible for the majority of symptomatic cases of influenza in humans.

Influenza A viruses can be further categorized based on their expression of two viral surface proteins: hemagglutinin (H) and neuraminidase (N). These viruses are known to have high mutation rates, with frequent changes to the viral protein structure.

The total number of products under development for influenza A H3N2, H1N1, H5N1 and H7N9 subtype infections is 54, 107, 58 and 31, respectively. Key companies operating in this pipeline space include Sanofi, Seqirus and NanoViricides.
