76072-8Enterovirus D68 RNA [Presence] in Specimen by NAA with probe detectionActive

Term Description

This term was created for the Association of Public Health Laboratories and is limited for use by public health laboratories, which are unique in that they can sometimes run tests on any sample, either human or environmental, using locally-developed tests. Other organizations, such as hospitals or commercial laboratories, use a term that specifies the particular specimen(s) that the test kit they are using has been approved for.

Part Description

LP186175-8   Enterovirus D68 RNA
Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) is one of more than 100 non-polio enteroviruses. Enteroviruses (family Picornaviridae, genus Enterovirus) are non-enveloped, positive-sense ssRNA viruses. EV-D68 is one of four serotypes, along with EV-D70, EV-D94 and EV-D-111, assigned to the human enterovirus D species. EV-D68 primarily causes respiratory illness, however, the full range of disease remains uncertain. [PMC:3542132] The virus is found in respiratory secretions and likely spreads person to person via coughing, sneezing, or surface contact. In the United States enterovirus infections are more common in the summer and fall. Although it was first isolated in California in 1962, EV-D68 was rarely reported in the U.S. until 2014, when the number of cases greatly increased. Infants, children, and teenagers are most likely to have symptomatic infections, which can vary from mild upper respiratory iillness to significant respiratory distress with complications requiring hospitalization and, in rare instances, death. Children with asthma are at higher risk for respiratory distress. Adults can get infected, but are more likely to have no symptoms or mild symptoms. There are no vaccines or specific anti-viral treatments for EV-D68, but patients should receive supportive care as appropriate. Source: Regenstrief LOINC, CDC
