Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a highly prevalent, very contagious respiratory infection and a leading cause of bronchitis and pneumonia, affecting more than 64 million people each year worldwide.1 Because the symptoms of RSV can be difficult to distinguish from influenza or other respiratory infections, many who are infected with RSV may not be properly diagnosed.
This is going to have a definite positive impact on the demand for testing of infectious diseases like RSV. The deaths among neonates owing to these infections can be prevented when timely diagnosis and subsequent treatment is provided.
To profile the seasonality of RSV with a smooth seasonal curve, we adopted an approach described previously by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: we defined the RSV season as consecutive weeks during which the percentage of tests positive for RSV per week exceeded a threshold of 10% (20,21).
Survey of diagnostic testing for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) in adults: infectious disease physician practices and implications for burden estimates.
Over the years, we noticed at Prince Sultan Military Medical City (PSMMC), Riyadh, Saudi Arabia pediatric unit that RSV infection was a major cause of admission for young children, and fatal outcome was observed in many cases.
More than 20% of hospitalizations due to RSV occur in the first 2 months, more than 50% occur in the first three months, and more than 70% occur in the first six months (14).
The Light Diagnostics Respiratory Panel 1 Viral Screening and Identification Kit (Millipore, USA) was used for the qualitative confirmation of influenza and RSV. Briefly, acetone fixed slide were stained with Respiratory Virus and specific identification antibody and FITC-labelled Anti-Mouse IgG Conjugate were added on it.
Palivizumab, an antibody that is given by intramuscular injection, is licensed in the United States as an immunoprophylaxis and is recommended for infants and children who are at increased risk for severe RSV disease.
Influenza A, influenza B, parainfluenzas 1, 2, and 3, adenovirus and RSV were detected in a first screening by fluorescent microscopy using a commercial fluorescent polyclonal antibody conjugate (Respiratory Panel Viral Screening and Identification IFA Kit.
