88890-9Parainfluenza virus 1+2+3+4 RNA [Presence] in Nasopharynx by NAA with non-probe detectionActive

Term Description

This assay detects RNA from Parainfluenza virus types 1-4 in nasopharyngeal swabs using PCR and non-probe detection methods, such as melt curve analysis. A single Parainfluenza virus result is reported when any of the four subtypes are detected. This term was created for, but not limited in use to, BioFire Diagnostic FilmArray Respiratory Panel EZ assay.

Part Descriptions

LP145690-6   Parainfluenza virus 1+2+3+4
Human parainfluenza viruses (HPIVs) have been recognized as a cause of respiratory tract infections for many decades. They belong to the Paramyxoviridae family, subfamily Paramyxovirinae, and are classified into 4 serotypes. Serotype 4 can be further subdivided into 2 antigenic subtypes, HPIV-4A and HPIV-4B.

LP145690-6   Parainfluenza virus 1+2+3+4
Parainfluenza virus is from the family Paramyxoviridae and the genera Paramyxovirus which includes the parainfluenza viruses and the mumps virus. Paramyxoviruses are particles up to 300 nm in diameter. They are spiral, tube-like symmetrical nucleocapsids which contain a monopartite, single-stranded, negative-sense RNA genome and an RNA-directed RNA polymerase. There is a matrix protein at the base of a double-layered lipid envelope which contains spikes with two glycoproteins, a viral attachment protein and a fusion protein. The viral protein spikes in parainfluenza viruses have hemagglutinating and neuraminidase activities. As all paramyxoviruses are labile, they are quickly inactivated (e.g., by heat, detergents, ultraviolet light). Primary infections occur in young children and cause mild or severe upper and lower respiratory tract infections. Reinfection is common and results in milder manifestation. Transmission is by direct contact or by droplets. Parainfluenza virus diseases are usually endemic although they can be epidemic. [NCBI Books:NBK8461] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
