attempts to demonstrate hemagglutination and hemadsorption by respiratory syncytial virus.extensive attempts to demonstrate a hemagglutinin of respiratory syncytial virus by both hemagglutination and hemadsorption tests failed. hemagglutination tests were performed with red blood cells from 12 different animal species and at various temperatures and ph.19714998352
growth of respiratory syncytial virus in suspension cell culture.respiratory syncytial virus, burnett strain, adsorbed efficiently and grew to high titers in suspension cultures of hep-2 and ma-160 cells. our results compared favorably with previous experience with the growth of respiratory syncytial virus in monolayer cell cultures. the use of suspension cell cultures provides a convenient and simple procedure for producing high-titering respiratory syncytial virus pools.19715002897

myxoviruses.myxoviruses can be divided into 2 groups, orthomyxoviruses and paramyxoviruses. the former comprise the influenza group which is subdivided into types a,b and c. influenza b and c are purely human pathogens but influenza a, which includes a large number of antigenic subtypes, occurs in nature in pigs, horses, birds and man. all influenza a viruses irrespective of origin are chemically, biologically and genetically related. the epidemics which they cause are curious and puzzling and are an import ...197547825
secretory component and sudden-infant-death specimens of blood, respiratory-tract washings, bronchopulmonary tissue, spleen, and thymus were examined for respiratory viruses, immunoglobulins, and secretory component (s.c.) in eight infants with sudden-infant-death syndrome (s.i.d.s) and in eight other (control) infants with an identifiable cause of death. serum-immunoglobulin levels were similar in infants with s.i.d.s. and in control infants. in some s.i.d.s. cases serum-igm was slightly raised. respiratory syncytial virus wa ...197551192

clinically useful method for the isolation of respiratory syncytial virus.a simple method for the isolation of respiratory syncytial virus (rsv) is reported; it is relatively rapid and results in a high frequency of recovery of virus. a nasal secretion specimen with high titers of virus is inoculated at the bedside onto susceptible cell lines to avoid loss of viral infectivity due to liability of the virus. during an outbreak of rsv, viral specimens were obtained by this method from all young children admitted to the hospital with lower respiratory tract disease. rsv ...1975162921

virus development in enucleate cells: echovirus, poliovirus, pseudorabies virus, reovirus, respiratory syncytial virus and semliki forest virus.a group of rna viruses, echovirus, poliovirus, reovirus, respiratory syncytial virus and semliki forest virus have been examined for ability to grow in enucleate african green monkey kidney (bsci) cells. semliki forest virus produced an almost normal yield of virus but poliovirus, echovirus, reovirus and respiratory syncytial virus, although showing clear evidence of virus replication when compared with a nuclear dna virus (pseudorabies virus) gave much lower yields than those from nucleate cell ...1975163289
an outbreak of severe pneumonia due to respiratory syncytial virus in isolated arctic populations.a rapidly developing outbreak of pneumonia in young infants was documented in two isolated artic populations in may 1972. these were studied virologically, serologically and clinically. in addition to the two stricken communities, one apparently unaffected with serious clinical illness and a fourth, in which are located the major hospital and airport in the eastern arctic, were also studied. one hundred and twenty-four patients were studied serologically and 81 respiratory and other specimens we ...1975163574
potential of attenuated respiratory syncytial virus vaccine for infants and children.respiratory syncytial virus (rsv) disease is a major cause of death and hospitalization in infancy and a frequent cause of morbidity throughout childhood. serum antibody does not protect as is evident from the study of natural disease and use of killed vaccines. local antibody responses occur in natural illness. possibly serum antibody in the absence of local antibody plays a part in illness. we have studied local and serum antibody response to potential attenuated vaccines: a 26 degrees c adapt ...1975165119
serologic profile of children in a mexican highland community: prevalence of complement-fixing antibodies to mycoplasma pneumoniae, respiratory syncytial virus and parainfluenza viruses.the study investigated the prevalence of antibodies to five leading agents of childhood respiratory disease in the county of huixquilucan, mexico. tests of sera from a random sample of children between 3 months and 18 years of age confirmed serologically the presence of mycoplasma pneumoniae, respiratory syncytial (rs) virus and parainfluenza 1, 2 and 3 viruses in this relatively isolated highland community. highest overall antibody frequency of 64.2% was seen for parainfluenza 3, and antibody t ...1975165720
experimental infection of calves with respiratory syncytial virus.three bovine isolates and one human isolate of rs virus were given intranasally to gnotobiotic, colostrum-deprived and conventional calves. all isolates produced a biphasic pyrexia associated with a serous nasal discharge. virus was recovered from nasal secretions 4-10 days after inoculation from nasal, tracheal and bronchial mucosae and lung of animals killed 7-13 days after inoculation. infection did not produce any macroscopic lesions, but histologically there was a focal degenerative rhiniti ...1975167410
new human adenovirus isolated from a renal transplant recipient: description and characterization of candiate adenovirus type antigenically distinct adenovirus is described which was isolated in march 1972 from the urine of a 17-year-old caucasian male who was experiencing fever after receiving a kidney transplant from a cadaver in february. the adenovirus could not be isolated in april from a pharyngeal swab which yielded cytomegalovirus. complement-fixation, hemagglutination-inhibition, and/or serum-neutralization tests on sequential serum specimens from the patient confirmed that the adenovirus infection occurred ...1975170313
physicochemical and serological characteristics of respiratory virus fluorescein-isothiocyanate conjugates for fluorescent-antibody diagnosis.fluorescein-isothiocyanate (fitc) conjugates were prepared by improved methods from standard reference antisera to influenza a and b, mumps, parainfluenza 1, 2, 3, and 4, herpesvirus, respiratory syncytial virus, and adenovirus hexon. the antisera, prepared in a variety of animals, were fractionated three times with selected optimal concentrations of ammonium sulfate and yielded gamma globulins of adequate purity for conjugation with fitc. conjugates containing optimal fluorescein-to-protein rat ...1975170315
