molecular epidemiological analysis of community circulating respiratory syncytial virus in rural south africa: comparison of viruses and genotypes responsible for different disease manifestations.human respiratory syncytial virus (rsv) is a major cause of severe lower respiratory tract infection in children in both the industrialized and developing world. most molecular epidemiological studies have, until now, focused on isolates from hospitalized infants in industrialized countries. limited data have been available with regard to community circulating rsv, especially from africa. the present study compares rsv isolates from infants attending rural community clinics in the northern provi ...200212226836

respiratory syncytial virus associated illness in high-risk children and national characterisation of the circulating virus genotype in south africa.there is limited information about respiratory syncytial virus (rsv) in high-risk children from developing countries or on the genotype characterisation of the circulating virus.200312829040
determinants of acute respiratory infections in soweto--a population-based birth cohort.acute respiratory infections (aris) are an important cause of infant morbidity in both developing and developed countries, and they are the leading cause of death in poorer parts of the world. respiratory viruses appear to be the most frequent microbiological pathogens, especially respiratory syncytial virus. it has been suggested that factors such as being male, overcrowding, poor access to medical care, low level of maternal education, and passive smoking are associated with contracting aris.200616909190
molecular epidemiological analysis of a nosocomial outbreak of respiratory syncytial virus associated pneumonia in a kangaroo mother care unit in south africa.respiratory syncytial virus (rsv) may cause severe lower respiratory tract disease in premature infants. prolonged viral shedding has been reported in patients with underlying immunosuppressive disorders, such as human immunodeficiency virus 1 (hiv-1) infection. during march to may 2006, 23 preterm pediatric patients developed nosocomial pneumonia in a district hospital in the gauteng province of south africa due to rsv infection. the patients were identified using routine diagnostic testing. al ...200818297695
