duration of secretory igm and iga antibodies to respiratory syncytial virus in a community study in guinea-bissau.respiratory syncytial virus (rsv) is probably the single major cause of lower respiratory infection (lri) among infants worldwide. its relative importance may be underestimated, as the diagnosis is based on antigen detection and antigen may only be detectable in the early phase of infection. we have therefore assessed the duration of secretory igm and iga antibody responses and whether assays for these antibodies can be used to improve the diagnosing of rsv-associated infections. during two rsv ...200010830453
comparison of nasopharyngeal aspirate and nasal swab specimens for detection of respiratory syncytial virus in different settings in a developing country.to compare detection of respiratory syncytial virus (rsv) for diagnostic purposes using nasopharyngeal aspirate (npa) and nasal swabs (ns) in different clinical settings in a community study in guinea-bissau.200211952947
mothers may transmit rsv infection more easily or severely to sons than daughters: community study from guinea-bissau.opposite gender transmission may increase the severity of certain infections. if infections transmitted from mother to son were more severe than from mother to daughter this might explain severe diseases among boys, particularly in small families with few individuals contributing to transmission. among children from guinea-bissau, we tested whether mothers with recent respiratory syncytial virus exposure (positive igm and iga antibody responses) were more likely to have male than female children ...200415198187
acute lower respiratory tract infections and respiratory syncytial virus in infants in guinea-bissau: a beneficial effect of bcg vaccination for girls community based case-control study.among measles unvaccinated infants in guinea-bissau, we tested whether case infants with acute lower respiratory tract infection (alri), especially alri caused by respiratory syncytial virus (rsv), were more likely to be bacille calmette guerin (bcg)-unvaccinated and to have no scar after bcg vaccination than were control infants without symptoms of alri. three hundred and eighty-six case infants with alri were identified at a paediatric clinic (n=84), a health centre (n=82), and in a community ...200515652667
long-term consequences of respiratory syncytial virus acute lower respiratory tract infection in early childhood in guinea-bissau.the study aimed to investigate long-term consequences of respiratory syncytial virus (rsv) positive acute lower respiratory tract infection (alri) in a low-income country according to severity of the initial infection.200617072125
