stool viruses in babies in glasgow 2. investigation of normal newborns in hospital.the stools of 37 newborn babies born in hospital were examined for the presence of virus. an extract of every stool passed by each baby was examined in the electron microscopy and inoculated into cell cultures. the babies were delivered in four separate maternity units (a-d). all the babies from unit a and c(9 babies) were found to be excreting rotavirus though none showed any evidence of diarrhoea. two of the babies also excreted astrovirus. subsequently unit a was closed for cleaning and, on r ...1978212478

human rotavirus infection in infants and young children with intussusception.human rotavirus was detected by electron microscopy in 11 of 30 infants and young children with intussusception (37% of subjects under study). serologic complement fixation tests revealed evidence of infection with the rotavirus in 70% of the patients examined who eliminated the rotavirus in their stools. these results indicate that human rotavirus, in addition to adenovirus, may be an infectious agent causing intussusception in infants and young children.1978212529

prevalence of neutralizing antibody to the calf rotavirus in new york march 1973, a modified live virus vaccine was released for sale in the united states for the protection of neonatal calves from infection with calf rotavirus. at that time no published evidence existed that this agent was present in new york or the new england states. serum neutralizing antibodies for the calf rotavirus (reovirus-like agent of neonatal calf diarrhea) were detected in serum from 108 of 110 dairy cattle in new york state representing 78 different herds. to exclude the possibili ...1979225124
polypeptides of bovine rotavirus.polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of bovine rotavirus or neonatal calf diarrhoea virus (ncdv) grown in cell culture resolved eight species of polypeptide. the inner shell particles contained five polypeptides and the outer shell three polypeptides. a major polypeptide of the outer shell was glycosylated. the infectivity of ncdv was enhanced by treatment with trypsin in vitro. all eight polypeptides were affected by trypsin treatment as judged by diminished intensity of polypeptide bands by radi ...1979225424
[diagnosis of rotavirus using viral rna electrophoresis].rotavirus has emerged as a major agent of acute enteritis of infants. a rapid and simple technique has been developed for its detection, based on the visualization of the viral rna electrophoretic pattern. this technique takes advantage of the large amount of rotavirus present in the stools and the high sensitivity for detection of rna obtained with ethidium bromide.1978203295
[existence of 2 types of rotavirus associated with acute gastroenteritis in children].rotaviruses found in the stools of different infants, hospitalized in the hospital del niño del dif, may be grouped into at least two types according to their rna composition. the viral rna composition was analyzed by electrophoresis in agarose gels. the different types can be distinguished by the mobility of the second larger of the 11 segments that make up the viral rna.1978203294

solid-phase radioimmunoassay of iga, igg, and igm antibodies to human rotavirus.a solid-phase radioimmunoassay (ria) has been developed for the detection of human rotavirus-specific iga, igg, and igm antibodies. nebraska calf diarrhea virus grown in llc-mk2 cell cultures in the presence of trypsin was directly adsorbed onto polystyrene balls, and antibodies that attached to the virus-coated balls were detected by subsequent binding of 125i-labeled antibodies specific to human alpha, gamma or mu chains of human iga, igg, or igm immunoglobulins. a total of 116 serum specimens ...1979225443
identification of an enteric adenovirus by immunoelectroosmophoresis (ieop) technique.infantile gastroenteritis can be caused by several of the established adenovirus types. there are also adenoviruses that defy in vitro cultivation but have been recognized by electron microscopy. one isolate of these viruses, which have been designated enteric adenoviruses, has been characterized. several of the established adenovirus types are shed in stools over long periods. the conditions for direct identification of enteric adenoviruses by immunoelectroosmophoresis (ieop) have therefore bee ...1979225444
comparison of the genomes of simian, bovine, and human rotaviruses by gel electrophoresis and detection of genomic variation among bovine co-electrophoresis in polyacrylamide gels, the segmented double-standed rna genome of the simian rotavirus, sa 11, was compared with those of human and bovine rotaviruses. a comparison between sa 11 virus and the northern ireland cell culture adapted bovine virus showed that the electrophoretic mobilities of each of the 11 corresponding segments differed. in other comparisons, four to seven segment variations were more common. when the genomes of various bovine rotaviruses were compared, eigh ...1979225545
[rotavirus diarrhea in childhood].electron microscopy of 350 diarrhoeal faeces revealed rotavirus-particles in 145 cases. all patients with rotavirus-infections showed symptoms of acute gastroenteritis lasting 1 to 8 days. additionally to diarrhoea most cases presented fever and vomiting. none of the patients showed toxicosis.1979225599
