The third, most frightening, scenario is that H1N1 could pick up genes by reassorting with other flu viruses, making it both more lethal as well as highly contagious.
With massive concentrations of farm animals within which to mutate, these new swine flu viruses in North America seem to be on an evolutionary fast track, jumping and reassorting between species at an unprecedented rate," explained Michael Greger, director of public health at the US Humane Society.

However, this characteristic might change if pandemic (H1N1) 2009 viruses acquire virulence markers by reassorting with influenza viruses that cause severe disease in humans, such as highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses (HPAIVs) of the H5N1 subtype.
For those who know Lubka for turning the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog around in the early '90s (he helped to increase sales roughly 70 percent over a two year period, he said), it should come as no surprise that in less than one year at Chef's Catalog he has sharpened the catalog's focus by cleaning up marginal merchandise and reassorting the book.
