Hybrid Flu: A disease that occurs when genes from animal influenza viruses mix with human flu viruses. For example, the new virus responsible for the swine flu is believed to be a mix of pig, bird (avian), and human flu viruses. Hybrid flu viruses have caused pandemics twice in the past, in 1957 and 1968.
