survey for antibodies to respiratory viruses in two groups of sheep in northern ireland.two hundred serum samples from texel and texel crossbred sheep (non-indigenous breeds) and 200 from indigenous northern ireland breeds (mainly blackface, cheviot and border leicester crosses) were tested for antibodies to parainfluenza virus types 1, 2 and 3, respiratory syncytial virus, bovine adenovirus (subgroups 1 and 2), influenza type a, maedi-visna virus and bovine virus diarrhoea virus. the percentage of animals with antibodies to parainfluenza virus 3 (50 to 56 per cent) and adenovirus ...19846095511

burden on uk secondary care of rotavirus disease and seasonal infections in children.rotavirus is a common infection affecting children under 5 years, which leads to a significant disease burden. this burden is potentially exacerbated by the seasonality of rotavirus, particularly in the context of the seasonality of other common childhood infections. the primary study objective was to describe the pattern and burden of seasonal infections amongst children under 5 years of age with particular attention placed on rotavirus and other gastrointestinal infections.201020818925
childhood respiratory infections and hospital admissions for copd.chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (copd) exacerbations are associated with viral infections. we wished to determine if respiratory viral infection of children in the community was associated with hospital admissions of patients with exacerbations of copd.200616046259
investigation of seroprevalence of respiratory virus infections in an infant population with a multiantigen fluorescence immunoassay using heel-prick blood samples collected on filter paper.respiratory viruses are an extremely common cause of childhood morbidity. however, the current seroprevalence of viruses in infant populations is difficult to establish because invasive venipuncture may be technically and ethically unacceptable. this prospective study aimed to establish the seroprevalence of respiratory viruses in an infant population by use of a novel multiantigen fluorescence immunoassay against common respiratory viruses, using heel-prick blood samples collected on filter pap ...199910367768
efficacy and long-term outcomes of palivizumab prophylaxis to prevent respiratory syncytial virus infection in infants with cystic fibrosis in northern ireland.rsv causes considerable morbidity and mortality in children. in cystic fibrosis (cf) viral infections are associated with worsening respiratory symptoms and bacterial colonization. palivizumab is effective in reducing rsv hospitalization in high risk patient groups. evidence regarding its effectiveness and safety in cf is inconclusive. cf screening in n. ireland enabled timely palivizumab prophylaxis, becoming routine in 2002.201626808981
