A swine influenza A pandemic 2009 H1N1 (pH1N1) virus was used in a pig challenge model to investigate the efficacy of whole inactivated vaccines homologous or heterologous to the challenge virus as well as a commercial vaccine. Nasal shedding of viral RNA was monitored daily by real-time, quantitative RT-PCR (RRT-qPCR) as detailed (1). Here we report the statistical modelling of the viral RNA shedding kinetics.
