Article Title: Control of influenza A on a bone marrow transplant unit
Abstract: In January 1998, an outbreak of influenza A occurred on our adult bone marrow transplant unit. Aggressive infection control measures were instituted to halt further nosocomial spread. A new, more rigorous approach was implemented for the 1998/99 influenza season and was extremely effective in preventing nosocomial influenza at our institution.
