D225G Tamiflu Resistant H1N1 In Texas / California
In addition to the presence of H274Y in the recently released sequences, two of the cases (60F and 19M) also had D225G (A/California/21/2012 and A/Texas/34/2012, respectively), raising concerns that D225G and H274Y are transmitting. The genetic background of these cases matches a dominant 2012 H1N1pdm09 genotype that is widespread in the United States, indicating the sub-clade is well adapted for spread and raising concerns that H274Y and D225G are circulating as mixtures, and the true level is markedly higher than the recently reported cases.
More information on the clinical picture of the two D225G cases would be useful, as well as minor signals in sequences that have been presented as wild type for HA position 225 and NA position 274.
