305/2012), we sequenced the RSV glycoprotein second variable domain of nucleic acid extracts derived from RSV-positive respiratory secretion samples from 160 young children hospitalized for treatment of respiratory tract infections.
All respiratory secretion samples (1,500) were routinely tested for respiratory viruses (10).
A Lib13 PCR assay (8) was performed on the DNA purified from the respiratory secretion material, and the results are shown in Figure 2.
Microbiological investigation was negative for bacteria on blood and respiratory secretion. Respiratory viruses were surveyed in nasopharyngeal aspirates (NPA) using a PCR multiplex method (RV 15, Seegene, South Korea), which detects respiratory syncytial virus A and B, adenovirus, influenza A and B, parainfluenza 1, 2, 3 and 4, human metapneumovirus, Coronavirus OC43 and 229, human rhinovirus A, B and C that resulted negative.
The use of quantitative cultures is one of the main issues for any diagnostic laboratory because there is oropharyngeal bacterial contamination of all respiratory secretion samples, despite this is not always undertaken in many hospitals today.
Thus, except for detecting within-between interaction respiratory secretion density differences, it is unlikely that our negative findings regarding within and between groups can be attributed to a limited sample size.
Respiratory ailments: Turmeric, anise seeds and cumin seeds stimulate respiratory secretion. It is a good remedy for bronchitis and asthma.
"They must be considered for Vitamin A supplementation," she said mentioning that measles is an airborne virus that spreads by direct contact with droplets from respiratory secretion.
He said the virus was found in the respiratory secretion and faeces of the animals - and called on stringent monitoring of the civet cat trade to prevent more outbreaks.
This low level outward current may reflect a generalized respiratory secretion of [CO.sub.2] from the tissue in general.
In our study, all specimens were lower respiratory secretion samples, which means all the samples were detected by Gram stain before quantitative loop-mediated isothermal amplification (qLAMP) assay and only adequate samples (sputum containing >25 leukocytes per low power field) were enrolled.
SARS infection of HCWs might be related to increased contact with respiratory secretions, contact with patients during a more contagious phase of critical illness, contact with particular patients at increased likelihood of spreading SARS (i.e., super spreaders), or exposure to aerosol-generating patient-care procedures (6).
