Term Description

Overall interpretation of presence of MERs-CoV RNA based on the findings from gene-specific PCR assays. The submitter's assays target RNA from the N2 [LOINC: 74473-0], N3 [LOINC: 74472-2], and upE [LOINC: 74474-8] genes in respiratory specimens (nasopharyngeal, oropharyngeal swabs, sputum, lower respiratory aspirates/washes), serum, and stool. This code was created for, but not limited in use to, the submitter's primer and probe set, NCV-2012 rRT-PCR (CDC; Catalog #KT0136),

Part Description

LP173753-7   Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus
Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is an illness caused by the virus Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronovirus (MERS-CoV). The illness was first reported in Saudi Arabia in 2012, but was later found to have originated in Jordan in 2012. MERS has been found in camels leading to speculation that they may be the initial reservoir for the virus. The largest outbreak of MERS that has occurred outside of the Arabian Peninsula was in the Republic of Korea in 2015 and was linked to an individual who had been traveling in the Arabian Peninsula. The virus is probably spread through respiratory secretions from infected individuals though the exact mode of transmission is under investigation. Infection with MERS begins with an incubation period of 5-6 days followed by a severe acute illness that involves fever, shortness of breath and for patients with comorbidities or reduced immunity can lead to pneumonia and kidney failure. The mortality rate of MERS is 3-4 out of 10 people who are infected, though most of the people who die have underlying conditions. In addition, some people experience only cold-like symptoms and others have no symptoms at all. In the United States, most state laboratories are approved to test for MERS-CoV using the real-time reverse transcription-PCR assay developed by the CDC. The assay can be run on respiratory, serum and stool specimens.[CDC: coronavirus/mers] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
