detection of multiple viral agents in nasopharyngeal specimens yielding respiratory syncytial virus (rsv). an assessment of diagnostic strategy and clinical significance.a retrospective study of 6 years (1981-1987) experience with clinical specimens of pediatric patients submitted for identification of respiratory viruses was undertaken to determine the prevalence of multiple viral isolates and to assess the impact of dual infections on severity of clinical disease. respiratory syncytial virus (rsv), the most frequently identified agent, was detected in cell culture and/or by immunofluorescence (if) in 666 of 2,415 specimens examined. a second virus was isolated ...19892591168

aerosolized ribavirin treatment of respiratory syncytial virus infection in infants hospitalized during an epidemic.thirty-three infants with predisposing conditions and/or severely symptomatic with respiratory syncytial virus (rsv) infection were treated with aerosolized ribavirin during a 12-week period at oklahoma children's memorial hospital. these patients were compared with 97 untreated patients with rsv infection hospitalized during the same epidemic. despite preconditions which selected for a more seriously ill treatment group, patients who received ribavirin showed prompter resolution of the illness ...19873562136
evaluation of health status of calves and the impact on feedlot performance: assessment of a retained ownership program for postweaning calves.the objective of this study was to evaluate animal health status at entry to a feedlot against feedlot performance and carcass value. there were 24 herds represented by 417 calves in a retained ownership program. the health status at entry was represented by the levels of serum antibody to infectious bovine rhinotracheitis virus (ibrv), bovine viral diarrhea viruses 1 and 2 (bvdv1a, bvdv2), parainfluenza 3 virus (pi3v), bovine respiratory syncytial virus (brsv), mannheimia haemolytica, and paste ...200212146889
