FDA issues emergency use authorization for influenza A/H7N9 rapid test | Vaccine News Daily

Hong Kong reported a new case of influenza A/H7N9 last week and the CDC warned that the virus could make its way to the U.S.
Influenza A/H7N9, a new strain of the avian influenza first identified in China in 2013, kills one in three people infected. The virus moved across China in two successive waves, crossing the border into Hong Kong, Taiwan and Malaysia.
The privately held Arbor Vita Corporation announced this week that the FDA issued an emergency use authorization for its AVC A/H7N9 influenza rapid test for the presumptive detection of the virus in patients with signs and symptoms of respiratory infection in conjunction with epidemiological risk factors.
