The pattern was also associated with viral load, or the amount rhinovirus
in the body.
Among the viruses tested, rhinovirus
was most prevalent (40 percent of surfaces), followed by coronavirus (30 percent of surfaces), adenovirus (20 percent, one air sample and one surface sample), and influenza A (10 percent of surfaces).
Although many rhinovirus
infections are only mildly symptomatic, rhinovirus
C has been associated with influenza-like respiratory symptoms and acute exacerbations of asthma in children (5).
Respiratory viruses such as adenovirus, rhinovirus
, respiratory syncytial virus, parainfluenza virus, human bocavirus, human metapneumovirus, and coronavirus were not detected in the nasopharyngeal swab specimen by multiplex PCR.
If you were really stressed and willing to risk damaging your reputation, you could simply send those positive for rhinovirus
home with nothing more than a cursory touch with a stethoscope and a "Call me" if they get sicker.
Using peptides synthesised in the lab, researchers assessed the impact of different peptides on lung cells infected with the human rhinovirus
The next step will see scientists try to modify the peptide to make it better at killing the rhinovirus
Conclusion: RSV and rhinovirus
are major causes of bronchiolitis in children.
Correlation between human rhinovirus
species and asthma
The importance of human rhinovirus
has previously been underestimated, but is now known to be a pathogen with the potential to cause severe disease in both PICU and neonatal ICU (NICU) populations, with a prevalence of up to 40% in emergency department and hospital settings.
Other viruses included adenovirus, influenza virus (FLU), parainfluenza virus (Pinf), rhinovirus
(RV), human metapneumovirus (hMPV), adenovirus (ADV), and human bocavirus (HBoV).
Aside from the "swine flu", other viral diseases such as respiratory syncytial virus, parainfluenza and rhinovirus
are spread in the country.
The various strains of rhinovirus
usually cause runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes, head and body aches, and are most often self-limiting, disappearing after about a week.
(2) Pathogens such as rhinovirus
, enterovirus, human metapnuemovirus, and parainfluenza virus are often underreported by hospitals because they lack the methods for testing of respiratory pathogens beyond influenza.
