Nguyen et al., "Molecular epidemiology of adenovirus infection among pediatric population with diarrhea in Asia," Microbiology and Immunology, vol.
In the present study, we have shown that adenovirus infection induces the release of the HNP-1, -3, and -4, into the upper airways of 6-12-year-old children.
The epidemiological studies of adenovirus infections have limitations due to the relatively high incidence of doubtful and inconclusive results obtained in the tests currently in use.
Therefore, a negative NPA result indicated that isolation of PIV III or adenovirus from the lower airway was unlikely, while a positive NPA result did not reliably predict lower airway PIV III or adenovirus infection. The agreement of PIV III was very poor; however, the agreement of adenovirus was fair.

The patient also had molecular evidence of adenovirus infection from the respiratory sample, but this was negative in the CSF sample.
In brief, cells were harvested 2-3 days after adenovirus infection. Proteins were extracted from transfected SNU-668 cells using lysis buffer and quantified by the Bradford dye-binding procedure (Bio-Rad, USA).
(1) There is also a strong association with adenovirus infection causing lymphadenopathy of the Peyer's patches, which can cause a lead point for intussusception.
Although, adenovirus infection is typically self-limiting, fatal disease may occur among persons infected with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and other immunosuppressed individuals [10].
