The Southeast Asian Influenza
Clinical Research Network: development and challenges for a new multilateral research endeavor.
For example, in a network-based simulation in which [approximately equal to] 50% of persons were infected, similar to the Asian influenza
pandemic of 1957-58, closing schools and keeping those children at home reduced the calculated attack rate by 90% (20).
During the Asian influenza
pandemic of 1957, studies suggested a possible increase in defects of the central nervous system (10-12) and several other adverse outcomes, including birth defects, spontaneous pregnancy loss, fetal death, and preterm delivery (8).
In the 20th century, 3 influenza-related pandemics occurred (1918 Spanish influenza, 1957 Asian influenza
, and 1968 Hong Kong influenza) (1), which are now known to represent 3 different antigenic subtypes of the influenza A virus: H1N1, H2N2, and H3N2.

We first show the spread of influenza within our unmitigated base case defined with parameters specified above and with [I.sub.D] chosen to yield an infected attack rate [approximately equal to] 50% to reflect the 1957-58 Asian influenza
