predicting respiratory syncytial virus hospitalisation in australian children.there is limited information on respiratory syncytial virus infections among australians, particularly those of indigenous descent.200616712553
cost-effectiveness of respiratory syncytial virus prophylaxis with palivizumab.a monoclonal antibody, palivizumab, directed against respiratory syncytial virus (rsv) has been shown to decrease hospitalisation rates. because of its expense, the cost-effectiveness of this agent should be determined for high-risk groups.200616712554
human metapneumovirus in lung transplant recipients and comparison to respiratory syncytial virus.human metapneumovirus is a newly described virus isolated in 2001 from children with acute respiratory viral infection. it has subsequently been reported globally, although there are limited data in lung transplant recipients.200818658110
co-circulation of four human coronaviruses (hcovs) in queensland children with acute respiratory tract illnesses in 2004.acute respiratory illnesses (aris) with unconfirmed infectious aetiologies peak at different times of the year. molecular diagnostic assays reduce the number of unconfirmed aris compared to serology- or culture-based techniques. screening of 888 inpatient and outpatient respiratory specimens spanning late autumn through to early spring, 2004, identified the presence of a human coronavirus (hcov) on 74 occasions (8.3% of all specimens and 26.3% of all respiratory virus detections). prevalence pea ...201222590689
frequent detection of human rhinoviruses, paramyxoviruses, coronaviruses, and bocavirus during acute respiratory tract infections.viruses are the major cause of pediatric acute respiratory tract infection (arti) and yet many suspected cases of infection remain uncharacterized. we employed 17 pcr assays and retrospectively screened 315 specimens selected by season from a predominantly pediatric hospital-based population. before the brisbane respiratory virus research study commenced, one or more predominantly viral pathogens had been detected in 15.2% (n = 48) of all specimens. the brisbane study made an additional 206 vira ...200616847968
comparing nose-throat swabs and nasopharyngeal aspirates collected from children with symptoms for respiratory virus identification using real-time polymerase chain reaction.the objective of this study was to calculate sensitivity values for the detection of major respiratory viruses of childhood by using combined nose-throat swabs and nasopharyngeal aspirates.200818725388
respiratory syncytial virus seasonality in tropical australia.respiratory syncytial virus (rsv) is most common during the rainy season in a number of low- to middle-income tropical settings, a pattern driven by seasonal changes in climate and nutrition. we investigated the seasonality of rsv in the high-income tropical setting of north queensland, australia.201525648729
