Most people infected with swine flu have relatively mild symptoms. Doctors have also reported that some patients hospitalized with swine flu develop worse symptoms than seasonal flu victims.

The study in Wednesday’s issue of the journal Nature Biotechnology confirms those anecdotal observations by doctors, as well as similar pathology reports from experiments on the lungs of ferrets, mice and nonhuman primates.
