Part Descriptions

LP14240-3   Influenza virus B
Influenza virus from the family Orthomyxoviridae are enveloped negative-strand RNA viruses with segmented genomes containing seven to eight gene segments. Of the five genera in the family, only influenza A virus (IAV), influenza B and C viruses are medically relevant to humans. Influenza A and B viruses have a similar structure whereby these viruses each contain eight discrete single-stranded RNA gene segments, each encoding at least one protein. While having a close phylogenetic relationship, influenza virus types A and B manifest very differently. While IAV infects birds, humans and other mammals, influenza B only infects humans and seals. Although both viruses cause human respiratory infection seasonally in temperate climate regions and more continually in the tropics, influenza B is normally less prevalent and causes less severe disease than IAV viruses. Research is ongoing to determine the evolutionary and epidemiological factors that shape the genetic diversity of influenza B virus.

LP264599-4   Cornea/Conjunctiva
The "Cornea/Conjunctiva" System in LOINC encompasses both the cornea and conjunctiva, which are contiguous structures in front of the eye. This System is used for LOINC terms that represent tests run on either corneal or conjunctival specimens (e.g., swabs) and does not imply that both the corneal and conjunctiva were sampled in any given instance.
