[respiratory syncytial virus infection. a frequent child disease in denmark with annual outbreaks].infection with respiratory syncytial virus (rsv) is an important cause of illness in infants often leading to hospital admission during the winter months. diagnosis of rsv by direct detection of virus antigen has been implemented in a number of departments of clinical microbiology, and on this background a descriptive study of the seasonal incidence, sex and age distribution of rsv in two danish counties was undertaken. a total of 5533 clinical episodes of respiratory infection were registered f ...19948009668
the fluctuating pattern of various genome types of respiratory syncytial virus in copenhagen and some other locations in denmark.a semi-nested rt-pcr method based on a region of the f and g glycoprotein genes was established, allowing the simultaneous detection and differentiation of group a and group b isolates of respiratory syncytial virus (rsv). the pcr products were subjected to digestion with restriction endonucleases to further differentiate the isolates. using, in addition, previously reported studies the prevalence of various genome types in the copenhagen region over a period of 6 years was established. furtherm ...199910519320
excretion patterns of human metapneumovirus and respiratory syncytial virus among young respiratory syncytial virus (rsv) and human metapneumovirus (hmpv) cause serious respiratory tract infections, the routes of transmission of these viruses are important to elucidate. we examined the modes of virus shedding and shedding duration of rsv and hmpv in young children.200617052968
